I live in Buffalo. One of my friends worked in debt collections & our friendship was ended when I told her she was better off as a bartender (her former job) cuz at least she wasn’t harassing people to get money out of them when they obviously couldn’t pay. You don’t harass people in a bar. They wouldn’t be there if they didn’t want to be there.
I probably should have kept my mouth shut but ya know … her soul was at stake. Or something like that.
