It has been said that people “vote with their feet.” Definitions of voting with your feet agree that it is showing your opinion by leaving an organization or by no longer supporting, using, or buying something. At times it is a way to show your displeasure with a person or a circumstance, hoping to effect change.
I have a feeling we’ve all done it at one time or another. Voters do it to express displeasure with candidates. You and I might refuse to return to a place of business where we encountered poor service or poor quality with a product. Sometimes we vote with our feet when we believe there is no other way to get the attention of a manager, a company, a local business owner, or a person.
