Name And Shame
Recently a friend of mine posted on Facebook that he’d just been out to a restaurant in Rozelle where in his own words, the steak he had “sucked”. I found it amusing, but even more so, the opinions of many of the people who commented, some people suggested that he “name and shame” the restaurant.
Coincidentally, on the same day, while walking in the park with my kids, my mother-in-law needed to go to the loo. I might add that she is an elderly pensioner and had recently undergone serious surgery. I suggested she use the bathroom of a local café that we eat at regularly. Moments later she returned and informed us that they refused to allow her to use their toilet unless she was buying something! I was furious, I just can’t stand that sort of mentality and lack of gracious social consideration! Shame on the café owners, shame!
So it got me thinking, is “naming and shaming” on a social media site the way to deal with things nowadays?
