Talk About A Thing You Complained About Something (But Finally Got A Good Result)


Complaining is good when it is done for the benefit of others and staying silent after seeing unusual behavior or anything not good for society is like a crime for a law abiding citizen. In this consumer culture today we see a lot of plastic used and people who don't care about the environment throw litter as they feel somebody is paid to clean the streets and parks. If authorities don't take steps to reduce this land contamination it will be dangerous for all living beings.

- What did you complain about.- When it happened.

Here I am going to talk about a park I visited and  in a metro city for a business meeting and I thought about going for a walk in a nearby park so in the evening when I was walking in the park I saw a huge mountain of plastic waste and I felt shocked how somebody can be so irresponsible to do this here. After witnessing this I decided to make a complaint. 

- Who you complained to. - What was the result and - Were you satisfied with the result?

I inquired about the situation to nearby people and they told me that nobody comes to collect the waste regularly from the municipal corporation so it has been laying here for fifteen days. People from the neighborhood came here and left their waste bags here so it became a mountain. I immediately clicked some pictures and uploaded them on my social media and tagged the respective authorities and the municipal commissioner. I also made some important phone calls to respective offices. Suddenly I started receiving media attention and there were people from different media groups and it was a hot potato in town. The municipal corporation took immediate action and cleared the mountain of plastic.Being a responsible citizen I did what should be done on time. I did not like it at all and I felt sorry for those people who did not report this issue to higher authorities. I believe tolerating such garbage is not good at all.

Complaining happens when services are not delivered properly and people are left unsatisfied and frustrated. It is not good for an organization, company,or a government. Whenever a complaint comes it should be addressed to property and justice should be done. Sometimes people make unwanted complaints to get better services and priority. This kind of activity should not be tolerated.

- What did you complain about?

I am a businessman and my family deals in government projects and many times We come across people who are corrupt and greedy for money. They can go to any extent to make money. I was bidding for a tender in a public office in my state and the officer asked for a bribe. Which is totally against my ethics so I decided to complain about it.

- Who you complained to 

I decided to teach him a lesson and complained to anti corruption officials. Our government is so active and alert to reduce and totally remove corruption from our state. They have promised people a corruption free state. 

- When it happened- What was the result and why were you satisfied with the result?

So within a week anti corruption officers contacted me and explained to me the whole sting operation. And they told me my role to catch this official red handed. So Did everything according to their needs and they recorded and arrested the official and dismissed him from the duty as part of zero tolerance in corruption. I was really very happy with the functioning of my state government. They do not tolerate any kind of nuisance. And we law abiding citizens feel safe and secure.
