I need to vent – feel free to run away now.
Some twit emailed me through my Etsy shop yesterday about some yarn. A silly question, considering the info was in the listing but I answered politely and on the off chance she might be serious, mentioned I’d listed it at discount.
She responded with: “Actually it was $__.__ .” (less than what I’d just typed).
Really? You are going to ask me a question and then call me a liar? At this point, I’m so angry I’d rather burn the yarn than sell it to her but I respond politely if firmly that I do NOT misrepresent prices.
She responded with: “…, I didn’t mean to offend you.” On what planet is calling someone a liar NOT offensive?!
Meanwhile, I’m so incensed, I’ve checked the actual yarn and to my utter chagrin, see that I’ve been wrong about a characteristic of the yarn (fortunately, not in the listing itself). Now I’m pissed off with myself for allowing my temper to get ahead of my typing but it doesn’t matter, I never want to deal with this person again. I wish Etsy offered blocking.
**Steamed** but I think I can return to my normal happy self now.
