People are so quick to form an opinion and jump to conclusions

This was posted on Facebook. I will let you be the judge of whether people are quick to form an opinion or not.

“Oh, I’m so mad… 😡 Sorry, but I need to vent!!!
I experienced the WORST customer service today at a store in town. I don’t want to mention the name because I’m not sure how I’m going to proceed. Tuesday evening I bought something from this store and paid cash for it. I took it home but found it didn’t work. So today, less than 24 hours later, I returned it and asked for a refund. The girl at the store told me “NO” even though I had my receipt. I then asked if I could get a replacement instead. She still told me “NO”! So not getting anywhere with her, I asked to speak to the manager and explained to her that I had purchased the item but it didn’t work and produced my receipt. The manager just smiled and told me to my face that I was “out of luck ” no refund! No replacement!

Well, I tell you what… I am NEVER buying a lottery ticket at that store again!!!”

Were you becoming angry while reading it? Were you forming an opinion from the small amount of information that was given to you? Did you perhaps smile or laugh at the end? Did you feel a little foolish that you are so quick to judge based on little or no information of a situation?

These were some of the comments:

Some people obviously read to the very end of the ‘story’ and they had a bit of a laugh about it but admitted they were getting worked up until the end line.

Other people obviously did not even bother ready to the very end, even though it is quite short, and posted various comments as to how the person that posted this should deal with the supposed retailer and that it is illegal etc etc. You get the general gist.

Why do we, as a society, do this? Why are we so quick to pass judgement without the full facts?

If nothing else, I want you to think about all those times that perhaps you have passed judgement on others without knowing all the facts. How many people have passed judgement on you, without you even knowing it, yet they did not know your circumstances. How many people might be passing judgement on me right now…..
