Customer service

I’ve (David) seen it many places for many years the Ichthys. The fish symbol that you see on people’s cars or on signs that are showing a business is a Christian oriented business, meaning they will treat you better or just inform you that hey I’m a fisher of men too.


But I don’t think I’ve seen Exodus 14:14 quoted on too many signs, the store pictured is a typical mid size hardware store with lots of lights and other plumbing supplies that you can purchase here in Yaoundé.  So, as I sat in standstill traffic I launched YouVersion on my cell phone. The app defaults to the last Bible that you had opened, it happened that I was last reading from The Message. So I looked up Exodus 14:14

“God will fight the battle for you. And you? You keep your mouths shut!”

Now the French version of this verse is not quite as direct but you have to appreciate the new version of customer service Abuchson Eclairage is going for. Keep your mouth shut, I’m guessing this new form of customer service has not caught on throughout the world yet. But just remember when “the keep you mouth shut movement starts,” you saw it advertised here first.

    That’s funny. I’m not sure my customers would appreciate me joining that movement.

    Not quite sure this gentleman would be nominated as a good will ambassador.
    The sign is good for a chuckle. Wonder how many others have been prompted to open their Bible to find out this message.

    I think I heard this verse on a recent Time Warner Cable call, but I may be mistaken. 😉

      I heard about their new methods of customer service, I even downloaded the call heard around the world to see if I could learn anything new to help when I work with customers. I guess it’s a good example of what not to do. 🙂
