Everyday, I study the behavior of individuals and companies, and it's a bit head scratching at what we—as a society—have become. Of course, it won’t surprise most; we've collectively dragged each other well below mediocrity in most aspects related to quality, service, and respect. I can't help but think a temporarily cheated destiny won't let us get away scot-free with this sustained behavior.
