Every now and then I receive a call or email from a structured settlement industry colleague, mommy blogger, or reporter, who has been the subject of a post. As one can imagine such calls involve someone with an otherwise normal sense of humor that appears to be impaired in the area of "self deprecating wit".
These folks need to lighten up and realize that the responsibility for THEIR, or their company maintaining accurate websites, marketing materials, posts or articles IS NOT MINE.In the immortal words of Sgt. Hulka, the grizzled drill instructor from the movie Stripes "Lighten Up Francis!"
For those who get off on empirical evidence , there was a clear momentum shift to the good concerning the mischaracterization of the Certified Structured Settlement Consultant designation once names of the mischaracterizers started to be revealed.
It seems that people feel uncomfortable in the sunlight, despite the fact that the inaccuracies, intentional or unintentional mischaracterizations, or blatant misrepresentations we report on have been put out by them in the public domain.
Where does the responsibility lie?If you are not going to prioritize it, just recognize that someone else will!
LOOK, have a good laugh at your own expense, correct the error and move on. Nothing personal.
