Face lost

by Volker Weber

Respect, much like trust, is earned over the course of many years. And sometimes lost in a split second. As it happened today.

Ummm, am I the only one being nosy?

No, you are not. But there are times I am simply stunned.

Volker Weber, 2008-01-28

Ouch...that experience sounds familiar to me. Would you share some info on that (arrrgh ....notriously curios) or is it too personal and simply none of our business? (which I understood).

I think everyone of us has made this kind of experience. And nevertheless it is always shocking and, much more important, painful. I always appreciate all the help I get from friends and from other people I know. It has not only something to do with respect, but a lot with honour. It's a pity that some people just don't know what these words mean...

Fozi, I don't want to disclose too much.

Imagine somebody working in an advocacy position for a large IT vendor who has one large customer as a reference on record at a press conference. This customer makes an uneducated off-the-cuff remark about another one of your customers which he takes back ten seconds later. Both of these customers are good for multiple millions in yearly revenues.

As a journalist you just let it slip since there is nothing to be gained for anybody. The IT vendor guy blogs about it.

And now the question is, who has lost his face more? The guy who instantly jumped on the situation and blogged about it or the guy who made a comment he shouldn't have made?

Oooh, this could get recursive… :-D

Ceci n'est pas un blog
