Dave Cunnin has a heart of an artist. His palette is the Soul. Dave challenges our assumptions with loving grace, asking us to look at where we stand in the truth of what we are creating in the world. In is guest post, Where Is The Love, he states, “Work is an act of service and service with love is our highest calling.”
Dave’s story today teaches the gift of being of service as both the servant and the one being served with humility and love.
Where Is The Love?
by Dave Cunnin
I haven’t seen that sign for years. I think for good reason. Let’s face it, customer service is becoming as obsolete as green space in our cities. I recently attempted to purchase a vehicle. I felt I was being led down a narrowing cattle shoot of un-disclosure and misdirection where, at the end of the line the vehicle cost bore little relation to its advertised price. I made a difference. I chose not to buy the vehicle. Furthermore I openly and empathetically shared my concerns about their procedures with the sales person and the sales manager. They responded with rationalizations. Underlying all of this is a lack of trust. They don’t trust the customer, the customers don’t trust them. A significant moment, a moment that should be happy and joyous was turned into a duel.
