When our family is treated badly by companies, I’m the one who calls them on it.
The time our hotel room door was left open for who-knows-how-long by a locksmith changing the lock? I talk to the hotel manager.
Our $10,000 air conditioning unit fails the third time we use it and the company says they’ll send someone out in a week and a half? I post a comment about their service on their Facebook page.
They might label me a witch (or something close starting with a “b”), but I don’t care. Right is right.
They even have a term for it. It’s called “mansplaining.”
It shouldn’t be done. It’s sexist. At the very least, it’s bad manners.
Manners, says the grandson of Emily Post, are really reflections of core principles: consideration, respect and honesty.
How do we change men so that they respect women’s right to speak?
Call them on it. Yes, they might label you a witch (or something close starting with a “b”). But so what?
Draw attention to it. Use social media. Both of these were done by Marilee Talkington on Facebook.
Right is right. #LetHerSpeak
