Yes, most companies would prefer that their public face remains intact as it is hard to overcome a particularly negative perception. What people don’t often realize is that we are not asking them to change their opinions. It would be nice, but the real point is to be civilized and have them do their job. That seems to be overlooked these days.
Interesting what you said about Sharps containers. My arthritis is delivered by an EpiPen sort of device. My town, Cathedral City, gives the containers out free of change and they have 3 sizes. I have the largest which is about the size of 2 New York City phone books. They also dispose of them. Palm Springs has a similar program but I don’t know about other towns here in The Valley.
