Think about how you deal with people today and be honest with yourself... how rude are you?
The first email I received today, in response to my polite email informing someone that their credit card had been declined and they should contact me if they wished to continue the order, was "IF YOU VALUE MY BUSINESS CALL ME NOW".
I didn't decline their card. Their bank did. I'd be happy to call if they wanted me to (as a purely online company obviously our first form of communication is a less intrusive email). But I don't get paid enough to deal with that kind of email. Honestly... what is it with people? Where did they learn their manners? Why can't I be allowed to hurt these rude people to teach them some manners? And why can't I be paid even more to do even less? These questions perplex me...
It's my birthday in six days! AH! 24... 24... 24... That age haunts me... it's the only age I've never wanted to be... *BEGIN SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION* My Birthday Wishlist in case you didn't know what to buy me (or even incase you didn't realise you wanted to buy me something at all, which you do... I know you do... ;) ) Come on... give me a break, people have bought me things in the past so I might as well put this out there. And it only happens twice a year (birthday and Christmas).*END SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION*
