Anger sells.

For whatever reason people follow people that yell or always point out what is wrong.
Most times if you look behind the curtain the person normally doing the rubble raising have issues of their own.
Fact is, if you talk softly and respect others you probably will not get heard.
Rather then stirring the pot if people took more time to appreciate what they have and to try to better what they do they may find more happiness.
It does not take a brain surgeon to figure out if you angry all day something is wrong- you need to look at yourself and ask what it is YOU need to do to be happy.

And understand that there will always be struggles, there will always be people that will work against you and bad things will happen. Come to terms with that first, then move forward.

Stop trying to bang the drum and gather a following- be a leader.
Worry about you and your family and stop the noise and buying into the anger.
It will just flat out wear you down.

In the 30 plus years I have been with Arpin I know a lot of the back stories of employees, agents and drivers but I keep them to myself for the most part- the bad stories at least. I hear and have read all kind of accusations through the years. I watch as people come here with there pockets inside out and are given an opportunity. Some of them prosper and make a career here - others have personal issues or financial issues that get in the way-  They start to spiral and point fingers rather then address the problem. Some of them I consider friends  but some still never come to terms with their demons.

Arpin is far from perfect BUT they give people opportunities and what people do with them from there is up to them.

Yes- anger sells but in the end all you are and will be - is angry.
