This line from an insurance company commercial reflects the naive, self-centered and childish notions of a new generation of young adults.
Instead of taking the time to make sure you endeavor to do a good job, it is easier and acceptable today to use the excuse—
(btw… I used to hear this a lot in 5th grade)
What these young people may not realize is that this excuse cuts both ways.
How would these same, self-excused, imperfect individuals react when, say,
Their bank fails to properly apply their deposit,
When their creditor fails to timely credit their payment and charges a late fee,
When their attorney looses their case,
and the response is—
“Hey Customer— Nobody’s Perfect”
