"I wish every company we dealt with were like you." I hear this, or something to that effect, at least once a week. I don't say that to brag, it's just that bad customer service seems to be more common than not in this business. So why does it happen? Because delivering great customer service is hard to do on a daily basis. But it can be easier if you recognize the signs of bad customer service.
