Spokesmodels taking the heat for Detroit's problems

Think your days at the office are stressful? Don't ask the product presenters at auto shows about the difficulty of their jobs. The job of presenter at an auto show used to be "a pretty straightforward job." However, the bailout seems to have changed the job description a bit. With the government helping out General Motors (GM) and Chrysler, some auto show attendees believe that it is now their right to heckle the ladies in tight dresses who introduce shiny new cars on spinning platforms. But that's a bit like complaining to the cashier at McDonald's about the company's business practices: it makes no sense and will get nothing done.

Let me see if I can follow this line of thinking. Since the government has taken taxpayer money save struggling automakers, it is now the public's right to pay money to go to auto shows and make life miserable for spokesmodels. Seriously? This reminds me of sports fans who call in to radio talk shows and complain about management not caring about winning and not caring about the fans (and I know all about this as a former season-ticket holder for the Cincinnati Bengals). Let me give you some late-breaking news here ladies and gents -- it may make you feel better because you vented, but it won't change a thing!
