Yeah this seems to be the case whenever I post an article or a link to something, people don't like the way it was written and therefore assume that I am ALSO that brash OR that I condone it, and ignore the message completely. I LIKE the message of "don't worry about it". It reassures me. I don't care how it's delivered, just that at least now I know I'm not crazy in feeling the way I do when I get that statement, and now I know how to deal with it...do nothing.

I have also received the "reserve one for me please" and then they disappear entirely. That is annoying because that's a sale that could have gone to someone else. When they do it consistently I stop accepting their reservation. If they pay me, I'll do it for them, but I won't put them on a public list or anything thus scaring away anyone else who might want to sneak in before the list fills up. I don't mind making room!

This con I also received the "lemme see if there's anything better and if not I'll come back" I mean I KNOW what they're trying to say but it's the delivery that could be improved. They want to shop around. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, and in fact, I encourage it, but to tell me in a way that they're looking for something "better" is kind of..mm..off color. I just chalk it up to mis-speaking. I don't let it bother me much even if it does kinda make me go "wait..what?" initially XD

For the record, I don't think you're like that, nor do I assume you condone it. I've been following you far too long to think that. X)

It's more than just the way this article is written, though--ALL her articles are like that. @.@ With a grain of salt, though, there was good stuff to find. I do appreciate you sharing it anyway.
