Negative Reviews Aren’t All Bad

Ever since online reputation and review sites became the norm for businesses, a lot of businessmen have become worried with what their customers are saying about them. They are concerned about these negative reviews. They don’t want these reviews because they are afraid these reviews might hurt their sales. Thus, they end up considering things that will make those reviews go away like buy local business reviews .

Well, there’s nothing wrong about this. Also, there is nothing wrong about receiving negative reviews. True, it may affect the sales of a business but these reviews are great sources of customer feedback. Negative reviews will alert a businessman what they lack and what they need to address in order to improve.

Having negative reviews wouldn’t always lead to bad outcomes. Sometimes, having a few negative reviews would make a business more legit or more credible, since many people believe that no business is perfect. Also, there are people who read reviews and take them with a grain of salt. They know, it isn’t possible to trust the opinion of a stranger. Most of all, only 25% of online users are unlikely to purchase a service or product after reading a negative review. Hence, there’s still 75% left and that is a big amount already.

Businessmen should always remember that there’s no way one can please everyone. Because of this receiving a negative review from time to time is bound to happen. Moreover, if we compare the weight of receiving a negative review as opposed to having an online presence, the latter is obviously more important.

A Cute Intruder

Just a few days ago, a few minutes before 10 AM and just as I was preparing to leave for the mall, I heard weird sounds coming from down stairs. I don’t think it would be the cats. My cats are lazy, so definitely it wouldn’t be them. So I decided to investigate. I have heard stories about robbers breaking into houses, so you’d basically have an idea what I looked like when that thought came to my mind. I was afraid. So I took my phone and readied it in case it was indeed a robber. As I was tiptoeing my way the downstairs, I heard a sound that a robber wouldn’t make.

It was a tiny squeaking noise.

OH NO! This would be more horrible than a robber! I just had mice exterminators and a rat came back.

But then I saw a brownish white tuft and a couple of legs struggling while being stuck underneath my couch. Oy! This doesn’t like a rat. It is too fluffy and cute!

I approached the struggling fellow and lifted the couch to release the trapped critter. It was a rabbit! And I don’t know whose rabbit it is? Poor fellow. Must have been scared. I tried to analyze the situation and realized that the rabbit must have entered through the door flap and something must have spooked it, which made it run all over the place… bumping with the furniture and eventually trapping itself.

I tried to approach the intruder. It was wary at the stranger but it wasn’t afraid. It must have been used to humans. This means, this is someone’s pet and definitely someone has to be looking for this fellow. I was torn. My conscience is telling me to find the owner but my mind is telling me not to. I want the rabbit! Maybe I’ll try posting lost pet posters down the street. If no one comes to claim the fellow, then this cute intruder would be mine.

Collection of Medical Jokes

Medicine may be a serious but we can’t deny the fact that it can be funny at times. Here are some medical jokes that I have gathers over the internet.

  • Doctor tells to patient:
    - I have some bad news and worse news.
    Patient:
    - What is it, doctor?
    Doctor:
    - The laboratory test results show that you have only 24 hours to live.
    Patient:
    - Oh my God!
    Doctor:
    - The worse news is that I was tried telling this to you yesterday but your cell phone was unreachable.images (2)
  • A doctor of a small village drives a car at 150 km/h. His wife:
    - Honey, why are you driving so fast – there might be a policeman around the corner and he would stop you.
    - Don’t worry, darling, yesterday I told him to stay in bed.
  • Mechanic versus DoctorAllan, a mechanic, was removing a cylinder head from a Harley-Davidson motorbike, when he spotted a world-famous heart surgeon in his garage. The heart surgeon was waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike.Allan shouted across the garage, ‘Hey Doc can I ask you a question?’  The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to Allan.  Allan straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, ‘So Doc, look at this engine.  I also can open hearts, take valves out, fix’em, put in new parts and when I finish this will work just like a new one.  So how come I work for a pittance and you get the really big money, when you and I are doing basically the same work?’

    The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over and whispered in Allan’s ear, ‘Try doing it with the engine running.’

  • A famous surgeon went on a safari in Africa. When he came back, his colleagues asked him how it had been. ‘Oh, it was very disappointing,’ he said. ‘I didn’t kill a thing. I’d have been better off staying here in the hospital.’
  • Adam, an elderly man was seated in the doctor’s waiting room. When he was called in to see the doctor, Adam slowly got up, and, grasping his cane and hunching over, slowly made his way into the examining room.After only a few minutes, Adam emerged from the room, walking completely upright. Paul, another patient who had watched him hobble into the room all hunched over, stared in amazement. ‘That must be a miracle doctor in there.’ he exclaimed. ‘What treatment did he give you? What’s his secret?’

    Adam stared at Paul and said, ‘Well, the doctor looked me up and down, analysed the situation, and gave me a cane that was four inches longer than the one I had been using.’

Horror of Evolving Pests

A lot of things have changed these days and I am not only talking about the modern conveniences we have. I am talking about pests and how they are handled these days. When I was young, my grandmother would often use a mixture of borax and chili to ward off invading ants. Back then it was effective but now I tried doing the same thing but the ants seemed to have grown immunity against such mixture. Instead of being warded off, the ants would just go around it.

I also remember the mice and rats in the past aren’t as athletic and as determined as the mice and rats we have now. Moreover, they are smarter, more daring and more vicious as compared to before. Worst of all, they are much larger and more dangerous. Even cats and dogs are run away when they come across a rat on the street.

Pests these days are more terrible than before. Cockroaches evolve and gained immunity to various chemicals and pesticides. Mosquitoes have evolved and are now carrying various strains of viruses and diseases. The termite population is growing and growing in number. This is the perfect example of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Because pests have been changing and evolving, us people have also changed and adapted in terms of how we get rid of them. The chemicals and pesticides used by pest control companies against these pests have grown stronger and more potent. The traps and other devices used to either trap them or kill them have also improved and advanced. But still, we hear or see stories of rats disabling traps and other pests surviving or escaping them.

If pests these days have evolved and adapted to become tougher foes to humanity, what more would happened to them in the future now that us humans have adapted and improved our ways to get rid of them. Since it is impossible to get rid of them permanently, there’s a huge chance of them evolving and adapting further. Sooner or later, we might end up needing lasers and advanced weaponry to get rid of them. I hope we don’t live long enough to see such horror!

How To Say Merry Christmas in 54 Ways

Merry Christmas to everyone! I don’t think I have that much visitor in this blog but I know I have to provide Christmas Greetings here. So here’s a video my friend shared to me and about Christmas greetings and I’d like to share it in this blog.

A Problem At Work

Lately at the office, we have a problematic air conditioning unit. Water keeps on dripping from it. It doesn’t any harm to us and the unit was still functioning well but the problem is it is annoying.

ANNOYING LIKE HELL!!!

Water dripping without reason made our office a lot more humid. Furthermore, the water dripping from the unit might ground the electrical wires and router right beneath it. I cannot count the many times my office mate would react harshly whenever he sees water pooling near the extension wire.

At first, we thought the unit was too dirty and was in need of cleaning. However, days after it was cleaned the dripping began once again. So our speculations changed. There must be something wrong with the unit. My boss called a professional AC company and gave it a diagnosis. The situation was grave. Our AC unit would not last longer if this was left alone in this state for a long time. Obviously, my boss decided to have it fixed and replace the part that was supposed to be replaced. In the end, he spent almost a thousand bucks to have it fixed.

WOW! Our AC is good as new or so we thought. A few days after, the dripping problem started again. Oh! My boss was fooled – a victim of vile and predatory contractors who care nothing less of their customers’ problems. So what seems to be the problem with our AC? Are we doomed to have this leaky and dysfunctional AC forever?

Again, my boss decided to take a test of faith and call a different company. It was www.ecoproac.com. This time it was recommended to him by our supervisor. In came the professionals and I looked at them with untrusting eyes. They might be like the previous contractors.

I was wrong.

Instead mentioning faulty parts or defective AC. They singled out one particular reason why it was leaking. The AC wasn’t installed properly. Supposedly, the back of the unit should be tilted downward outside so that the condensing water would drip outside and not inside the office. So the problem was just that simple!
