Lessons Learned as a Debt Collector
Clients lie. After a while, when you get exposed to lies so often, you start creating a nasty habit of not telling the truth. This doesn’t do any good to you professionally. Neither does it help you become more human in this crazy world today. Basically, if you lie to a client which is lying to you he will pay his bills next Monday, you haven’t accomplished what you needed – he won’t pay those bills. If you lie to someone who is not lying to you, there is a small chance you can make him pay his bills because he gets scared. However, even in that case, your conscience might not allow you to sleep well at night. It is said that when one lies, he loses a part of himself. The more one lies, the more empty he becomes. I believe in that statement and I am one of the Don Quixote(s), trying to create a world without lies. It’s hard, I have to admit, but I love every second of it.
