I’m Not Always Reactive and Aggressive

I’m often quick with an aggressive response on social media and in person, but this letter demonstrates my ability to write a well-considered and even-tempered letter of complaint. I wrote another letter not long ago to Rogers, and it resulted in… Continue Reading →
