(Jaichai) Why I’m “Referral Averse”
I am fervently “Referral Averse”.
Because, IMHO, the whole referral game looks like a typical IED infested road that can be found in all Sandboxes (any country ending in “stan”).
Think of it.
It’s like recommending a job opening to a friend and the job turns out to be sh*t.
Or how ‘bout recommending a job-seeking friend to another friend with a job opening; only to witness that the new employee, your recommended friend, turns out to be a total no-load sh*tbird?
Last, but certainly not the least, what happens when you recommend one friend to another friend as a prospective romantic partner; then cringe when you see that one or both of them are 100% flaky, emotional retards?
In all those situations, you as a trusted friend and all around “good person”, are honor-bound to perform damage control and negotiate a cease fire; plus propose, implement and monitor an equitable, mutually beneficial reparation plan — FOR FREE!
That’s why for me, referrals and recommendations are simply not worth any piddly commission; and more importantly, certainly not worth spending my precious personal time worrying about.
Besides, who would want the hassle of serving as the perpetual middleman if/when things run afoul.
Just saying, JaiChai
