With the recession it seems that certain businesses and certain companies in Ireland are reducing levels of service in order to save costs.
The boom is over and prices have fallen, but have levels of service also been reduced – getting poor service is something which is creeping in here in there. From Restaurants and Bars to Travel Services and the general Service industry. I have seen many examples in the past year where I feel that service just was not up to scratch … not going to name any places (just yet) , but I’m just wondering if I’m alone. In one establishment, I held out my hand to get change and while looking me in the eye, the girl at the till plonked the coins onto the counter, another incident involved going to a till and the cashier just saying “20” … not “Thats €20 please”, just “20” – no please and when I was finished, no thank you. There are other areas where companies in Ireland are just skimping on quality.
Small things but I haven’t returned there!
