My impression from reading this article was that "people" really meant "the
public," as in any customer who walks into a store or restaurant as opposed
to specialized groups of developers, knowledgeable customers or, in the
case of the med techs, captive audiences who often don't have the option of
deciding not to work with you because they don't like your soft skills.

I can't think of any other explanation for the guy who did the last X-Ray
of my bad knee.
