I submitted my information to a very well reviewed, very well regarded provider to be screened. Over a month passed, so I followed up with this person. No reply. Several more reviews popped up. I was a little confused since I had all the required information, good references, and was very respectful and very polite in both the initial and follow up e-mails. Still nothing. Then I realized this provider had asked for ethnicity on their screening form.
Now let me be clear, I'm not here to start a firestorm about ethnicity/race - not by any means at all. I believe - and this is just my own humble opinion - that people are entitled to their preferences, and I respect and understand that. But I guess what kinda hurt my feelings was that this person declined to simply reply with something along the lines of "I prefer not to see you." That's really all I was looking for. Simple, effective, provides closure and we can all go on our merry way.
Anyone else noticing that people - and I realize it works on both the provider and hobbyist ends - are losing common courtesy? Thanks for letting me rant/vent. I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
