<< and especially of our pecuniary malaise >>
(first image that came to mind were lazy, unhappy rodents in south america.)
huge vendor accounts have at their disposal fedex account managers whose job
is to keep huge vendor accounts from wandering off to ups - to keep fedex
market share, profits up and shareholders happy. no mystery, no outrage.
huge accounts have at their end purchasing agents and comptrollers whose job
is to keep a close eye on spending - to keep waste down, profits up and
shareholders happy. fedex is arm-wrestling popeye.
you, as an individual, are your own comptroller. you are a vigilant one
compared to most of us (bac*, are you part scottish?). you have access to a
customer service representative, whose job is to find the balance between
keeping the customer happy while not bleeding out profits. by comparison,
olive oyl vs wimpy.
* by any chance (tla for the day)
