Why are companies so needy these days?

Another day, another request for validation…

If there’s one thing that gets on my nerves these days, it’s being ‘reminded’ by a company that I haven’t given any feedback for their product or service. It’s reached a point at which I can’t even used the toilet without being asked about my ‘experience’. I think back to simpler times fondly – times when I could buy lunch without being asked to complete a survey by the cashier; times when I could buy something on Amazon without being nagged by a seller over an item that cost no more than a fiver. 

It’s like having a needy child, constantly in search of validation. If I don’t wish to tell you about my bus-travelling experience or my recent visit to the bathroom, please don’t chase me up for it. I even received one from an airline the other day, reminding me to give my thoughts on a flight I took back in June! Did it not occur to them that if there was anything particularly memorable about it, I might’ve contacted them sooner? 

It’s so frustrating…
