Use the Words "Mad" and "Angry"

It is a common misconception that 'mad' and 'angry' mean the same thing. The definitions are different! So don't make people angry by being mad!

1. Understand the definitions:
1. Mad:
* Very foolish (Ex. "That was rather mad of you, challenging Dracula to a blood-drinking contest.")
* Marked by uncontrolled excitement or emotion (Ex. "When he saw the wine glasses filled with red liquid, the vampire was swept away in a mad whirl of giddiness.")
* Affected with madness or insanity (Ex. "Upon arriving at the scene, the doctor, taking one look at the waxen, heavily draped creature which lay twitching nervously in the corner, pronounced his patient as being 'quite mad.'").
2. Anger (often used as 'angry):
* A strong emotion; a feeling that is oriented toward some real or supposed grievance.
* Belligerence aroused by a real or supposed wrong.

Remember the phrase 'stark raving mad', and you should be fine.

Calm an Upset or Angry Child

When small children (about 2-6) get angry or upset, it's hard to calm them down, especially if you're a babysitter and don't know the child very well. This article helps babysitters, parents, and anyone else taking care of a child that is throwing a tantrum, crying, refusing to do something, etc...

1. Make sure the child is unhurt. Is physical pain upsetting him or her? If so, and he/she is hurt, take care of their wound, or bump in the head, etc. If the child is still upset (ex. 'Sally hit me!') there may be some anger towards the person or thing that caused the injury. If so, skip to step #4.
2. If the child is upset or angry about something related to one of his/her toys or possessions (ex. "Jimmy broke my doll!) ask to see the toy and try to fix it. In the worst-case-scenario, the toy will be permanently broken, and you may want to 'put away so you can fix it properly later'- and wait to see if the child forgets about it. If not, you can either buy that child a new thing or get it repaired.
3. If he/she is angry about a privilege being taken away, not getting to have dessert, having to turn off the television, having to go to bed, or simply is having a very bad day, don't be harsh. Be gentle and caring. Try to reason with the child. Ask what he/she wants, if they had their way. Do they demand to stay up another half-hour (or whatever)? Make a bargain, that they may stay up for ten minutes but that you would read them a story at bedtime (or whatever). Go halfway and give them a deal. If they still are being a pain, or if you simply can't let them stay up, tell them that they have to go to bed, and give them the reasons why.
4. If another child is upsetting him/her, find out why, then confront the other child and ask him or her to apologize. if you have any authority over the antagonizer, then give him/her a minor punishment (not watching TV that day, whatever) to make the other child feel better.

this is the tips

* Don't be harsh. Any upset child will respond negatively to an adult treating them harshly. Even if you are at you're wits' end, try to give them a little comfort and be nice.
* if there are any injuries on the child, treat them even if the child doesn't want you to ('it stings!' etc..). Safety first.


* if the child is doing anything potentially harmful or dangerous, make them stop. Immediately.

Handle Angry Customers

If you own or run a business, or even work at a business where you serve customers, there are going to be displeased customers. These simple steps may help you make your angry customer happy.
this is the steps

1. Be patient. An irate customer won't be placated by anything but a satisfactory resolution to their problem. Getting angry back at them won't help.
2. Approach the angry customer and ask what they are displeased with. Usually restating the issue they are having will help to calm them. For example, say, "I can understand your frustration with that policy."
3. If they ask for the manager, get him/her quickly and do your best to solve the problem.
4. After they address the problem, apologize for taking their time and inform them that your business will do everything possible to correct it. Then, make sure you and your coworkers do everything possible to correct the situation.
5. Compliment them after the discussion. Say something to the effect of, "It's people like you that help our business."
6. The next time they come back, ask how their day is and do everything possible to be polite.

You also try:

* Always be polite!
* Try not to take their complaint personally - even if it's about your own job performance. If you feel yourself become emotionally involved in the issue, it is best to step aside and let another employee handle the situation.
* Think about how you would want a problem handled if you had a complaint. Then, treat your angry customer as you would want to be treated.
* If you simply cannot give the customer what they want, give them something for free (you may need a manager's approval) to make up for it.
* Make the angry customer want to come back again.
* A customer complaint can be a vehicle for customer retention. If you handle the customer appropriately and apologize effectively you can turn a negative into a positive.

Remember this :

* Never be mean to the angry customer. Remember, you want them to come back again. If you insult them, they are sure never to come back, and they'll probably tell their friends, which can result in your business sinking to the bottom of the ocean (Going bust).
* Some customers are known to complain about anything. If you come across one of those customers, try to discuss with your manager whether this client is beneficial to the company or whether it might be worth to lose him, because he doesn't do a great deal of business and causes the company a lot of time in dealing with his daily complaints. The time wasted on one client like this could be dedicated to customers that are "true" customers.
* Please remember that the safety of you, your coworkers, and other customers comes first. If a customer crosses the line by making abusive, threatening, or hostile actions or threatens to, immediately call 911 and inform your supervisor when it is safe to do so. Companies would rather lose an abusive customer than have their employees, vendors, or other clients hurt or worse in the course of business.

1. Remain calm. This is absolutely essential. No matter how unfair or frustrating the situation do not get angry. To communicate with someone, you need to remain levelheaded to get your point across.

3. Try to have them Calm Down. Do not be patronizing, though, or you will make them even madder.
4. Be polite. Acting rudely will only aggravate them more.
5. Try to help. If you are working with them in a business context, provide them with service as quickly as possible. If not, listen to them. Don't say anything, just listen.

* Don't patronize or explain why their anger is irrational.
* Don't get frustrated or let your emotions get the better of you.

Pack for a Trip to China#2

* Find a cassette language course, or bring a translation dictionary. While it is important to understand some Chinese, don't stress, just know the basics, enough to get you by. Keep in mind, though, that most Chinese people, outside of employees at 5-star hotels/restaurants and shops that cater to foreign tourists, will NOT be able to speak English. (aside from "hello!!") So, if you want to venture off the beaten path, learn some key phrases. Also, ask someone at the hotel you are staying at if they could write down, in chinese, the places you wish to go during the day. That way, if you have a taxi driver, you can show them where you want to go. #If you are staying in the urban areas, chances are high that you'll be able to communicate OK in English.
* Always carry a business card of the hotel you are staying at. This way, no matter what happens, someone will be able to get you back to where you want to be. Just in case of emergency, it would also be a good idea to bring a copy of you passport with you and leave your real passport locked in the safe at your hotel.
* Know where to find your currency collection places. It is not possible to obtain Chinese currency outside of China. So you will need to know where to access major hotels and big banks in the big cities so that you can cash the travelers' checks or credit card when needed.
* Pay attention to how much cash you have with you. It is a good idea to keep enough to get a taxi back to your hotel. All major airports will have ATMs, so get the money once you arrive.
* Spend some time with a map and get to know the places you are staying or will be visiting. It will help you get your bearings before wandering off into the city.
* Insider Tips: Chinese people respect visitors from the Western world, and are quite helpful. Drink Coke whenever you're in doubt about the kinds of foods you have eaten - it will help digest whatever is not appropriate in your stomach...but don't overdo it.
* Make sure you know what you're eating and how well it's been cooked. In places like Wangfujing market in Beijing, sometimes many of the snacks aren't cooked thoroughly.
* If you are of Caucasian or African ancestry, do not be suprised if people ask you to take a picture with them.
* Prepare for your trip by making a print with all the hotels you will visit in Chinese charcters (use the chinese website for this or google translate). This will help the taxidrivers. Very rarely they speak English.

Warning to all,if you going trip to china please remember this
* Chinese culture is unique, and sometimes comes as a shock to outsiders. Don't be the obnoxious tourist! People will be more willing to help you if you aren't stubborn.
* Be aware of pick-pockets, as you should when in any big city or foreign country. Have a short chain connecting your belongings to yourself. In crowded areas, such as train stations, wear your backpack/purse on the front of your body, instead of on your back. Use carry-on locks on your zippers. Wear your wallet in a chest pocket. Dress in black formal attire, and look around as if sizing people up for a fight (if you're a man) to intimidate thieves. If you're a woman, you're SOL since most Chinese do not consider women dangerous or intimidating.
* In major cities, be wary of giving money to the poor. If you give money to one, others will almost always follow and ask for money too.
* Make sure the taxi driver uses the meter, this way there is less chance of being cheated. Be careful!
* It is always safest to buy water bottles than to drink from fountains.

Happy Vacation and enjoy your trip.....

Pack for a Trip to China#1

China is a very interesting and thrilling place to visit. There are a few key things that you need to be sure to bring with you, and some tips that can help you along your way.

1. Arrive prepared in China. Though there is shopping on every street corner, many of the things you may be used to may be unavailable to you in China. Bring toilet paper as most restrooms will not provide this. Plan ahead by saving toilet paper, in advance of the trip. Each time you have a partial roll left, place this in a baggie and toss it into your suitcase. Six to eight small rolls will last a family of four through a two week trip. Take only a key to your house or a car key with you. Leave all others at home.
2. Bring Pepto Bismol and Immodium chewables. Water quality in China is very poor and you may develop slight intestinal problems if you use tap water to brush your teeth or if you eat vegetables which have not been cooked after having been rinsed in tap water.
3. Bring clothes according to what season you are traveling. China gets VERY HOT in the summer, and quite cold in the winter. Bring plenty of clothes, but remember you can always find a laundromat to get your clothes washed. Beware, however, some laundry places use detergent that can irritate your skin if it is sensitive.
4. When you take a shower, be careful not to get any water in your mouth. It tastes normal, but could easily make you sick. Always brush your teeth with bottled water.
5. Consult your physicians in advance of travel. Physicians will prescribe antibiotics for you and advise you as to when to use the medicine. Be sure to have your prescriptions filled before your trip. China requires that you present a letter from your doctor indicating the need for the use of any psychotropic medicines you might be taking. Bring antibiotics and any other prescriptions you will have to take during your travel. Count enough for your days of travel, plus a few spare pills. Bring all of this in the original prescription container.
6. Write the contact information for each of your doctors on an index card and take this with you during your day trips in the event you have a medical problem, and need to call home.
7. Stock a hip pack for each member of your party with a small roll of toilet paper and a small bottle of hand sanitizer Enclose also a granola bar, some cough drops, as and some gum. These will come in handy as you travel around town.Include a flashlight since electrical blackouts can happen at any time, and you might find yourself in a dark room.
8. Take Travelers Checks, and some cash, as credit cards are not accepted by many restaurants and shops. Bring a security pack which will allow you to keep any return flight or train tickets and your travelers checks, credit cards, and or cash, safely attached to your person, underneath your clothes. This way you can keep essential items safe if there is no safe in your hotel room.

This is some Tips for trip to China

* Decide where you want to go, and do research before you leave. Know the general weather for the season and location you will be. There's nothing more miserable than being dressed for the wrong weather. Also, it is important that you dress conservatively. Long pants and nice shirts and tops are good.
* Read several histories of China to make the sights more comprehensible. Bring your guide books with you so you can read them on the airplane and in your hotel room so the information will be fresh in your mind.

Plan a Trip#2

7. Travel light. Leave space for shopping. Moreover, traveling with lots of luggage restricts your movement and causes discomfort. Only pack the necessities.
8. Notify a friend or family about your leaving. If possible, leave them a contact number or address.
9. If traveling internationally, make sure your documents are in order. Keep your passport, travel documents, visas, and similar items in a safe pouch.
10. Buy film, or keep digital camera batteries on hand.
11. Put vacation notices on your mail, and remember to set your answering machine.

This is some Tips for you

* If you are new to traveling, plan your trip through a travel agency, especially if you are going to a foreign country. It will make your trip so much easier!
* Try to book your hotel in advance. If traveling with a large group, arrange for a car to pick you up from the airport to minimize hassle.
* Call home!
* Get book(s) about your destination from your local bookstore

Plan a Trip#1

Some trips are scrimped and saved for, and others can be spontaneous and exciting. All trips are meant for adventure, relaxation and enjoyment. By planning well, you can ensure you that you and your family can enjoy a hassle-free trip!
1. Choose your location. Research it online and discuss it with your fellow travelers. Make a list.
2. Keep in mind weather and climatic conditions, merits and demerits of the place, types of recreation (beaches, culture, shopping), and facilities (transport, eating out, etc).
3. Plan around your location. What clothes are suitable? Are any medications needed? Do you need to take foodstuffs? What about currency?
4. Make a loose schedule. Planning too far ahead may backfire, because vacations hardly ever go as planned. Plan for spontaneity, but keep hints from travel guides in mind. Mark places to visit and things to do. How many days do you have? You should keep the overall schedule in mind - you do not want to end up too tired (or alternatively, bored).
5. Make a list. Write down the places you want to visit, including restaurants, museums, malls, and other places of interest. This will help give you ideas and prevent being completely lost when you arrive and do not know what to do.
6. Make a budget. If you plan ahead, you can save on ticket prices.
