通胀时代等于无情时代

假如过去你有情谦让,这并不等于这种行为是合理的。比如很多年前,我开车去中国店买东西,停车,下车,旁边印度人夫妻(看上去)找来了,说我小孩下车开门碰了他们的车,我没听到什么碰撞声音,我检查一下对方的车也看不出碰撞痕迹。对方喋喋不休,要怎么样?我有保险不可能自己赔钱,要赔也是保险公司的事。可是没有碰撞为什么要麻烦保险公司?没看到撞痕就要赔,我们家的车停在拥挤的火车站停车场撞痕几十个找谁赔?这两个坏蛋纠缠不清,我只好打911找警察了,刚打电话他们就吓跑了。一对印度浑蛋。
当然,那件事谈不上有情无情,也许一件事有一件事的理性做法,接近理性,海阔天空。
但是,通胀时代,或者任何坏时代,非理性,无情,甚至邪恶的举动就会多起来。像中国的穷省贵州的一个小地方政府,让承包商建了工程,欠款承包商上亿元,承包商和律师追讨欠款,还被以寻衅滋事罪逮捕,邪恶之大,莫过如此。
通胀时代坏时代的无情随处可见。比如你到Costco买鸡腿,以前的鸡腿连着大腿的部分很多,就是肉多骨头少,现在只剩可怜的小腿了,令人厌恶,我肯定会少买这种做了腿脚的鸡腿。还有Papa John,现在在网上定购比萨饼还要小费虽然不是强迫的,但是我看到这一栏就放弃定购了。来回跑二十分钟,花二十元另加小费和汽油费,相比之下我一顿饭花上十美元也自己做完吃完了,并且不是垃圾食品。

更可恶的建筑商草草了事,按照要求,认为属于保修的范围之类的事他们竟然推诿不修。我就遇到,愤怒,写了这样一个简短的email:

We paid more than $XXX for this house without even a toilet paper holder installed, The construction manager's excuse was that they don't know where the client wants to put the holders. Now you said the noisy flippers are not a warranty issue. Yes it happened that on a windy day I heard loud noises from them, but windy days are common in Florida as in most other places. If they didn't drop the foam or if they installed properly, there should be no such issue. For shutters hardware, it was the manager who told me they would send them later, so don't ask me to ransack the house to find it, without the manager's mentioning I don't even know there is a box of hardware for storm shutters.The same thing is true for window screens. If you want to know the dimensions and models, you should ask your construction department or other appropriate sources. XXXXX(开发商) should not dismiss so much responsibility to the customers after they have not finished the job properly.  The day before closing, the house was dirty, they cleaned in the morning of the closing day, they just put back window screens improperly. For the photos, I have submitted them when I submitted warranty tickets.

    美国前医务总监亚当斯(Jerome Adams)日前因脱水前往医院急诊,事后却收到近5000美元帐单,但他实际只接受几袋静脉液注射治疗及化验检查。

      据《商业内幕》报导,亚当斯今年1月出差时突感到头晕,前往斯科茨代尔(Scottsdale)的妙佑医疗国际(Mayo Clinic;世界排名第1的最佳医院)亚利桑那州分院急诊部,随后体会到令无数美国人沮丧的高额医疗费,以及充满陷阱的医疗保健体系。

      亚当斯表示,自己和其他美国人一样,无法提前知道看病要花多少钱,即使清楚,也无法在紧急情况下货比三家,且随着保险免赔额的攀升,越来越多患者难以或无力负担医疗费,最终背负“医疗债”。

      亚当斯表示,一收到几袋点滴和化验就要价5000美元的帐单,就立刻与院方代表谈了数个小时“令人精神疲惫”的电话,“连像我这样的人都遭遇这种情况,普通人就更没有机会了。这个医疗体系已经崩溃了”。
