Dear soccer mom,

We are a scrapbook and rubber stamp store. We are not a school project supply store. We are not here to provide you with the cheapest- but cutest- possible way for little Suzy to complete her project on polar bears or what have you.

So don't get pissy when we don't have what you want, at the price you want. (OMG YOU MEAN THESE 3D LEATHER STICKERS ARE $5! I ONLY WANT TO SPEND $2! It's a SCHOOL PROJECT!) Don't get snotty when I suggets you try the SCHOOL PROJECT SUPPLY STORE which is located ACROSS THE STREET from my store.

Be you bird, or squirrel or manical racoon, you WILL be removed. I do not enjoy being awakened by your scrabbling within the wall ABOVE MY FREAKIN HEAD at daylight each morning. I enjoy it less when I have the flu, and have gotten shit for sleep. Nor do I enjoy having to leap out of bed to catch the bedside lamp before it crashes to the ground, after your aforementioned scrabbling has teased the cats till they just HAVE to try and catch whatever you are- even when they can't see it.

I am not amused

Mel Gibson, his faith, his politics, his drunkeness or lack thereof, has totally no bearing WHAT SO EVER on my day to life, nor, most likely, on the lives of most people in this country.

So why the blue-balled hell am I hearing about "Mel's slip of the lip" every half hour on the hour? Come on, people! I know the whole Israel, Lebanon, Hezbollah stuff is gettig freaking repetitive and you're tired of re-hashing issues that have existed for decades upon decades,
but, (to steal from [ profile] archmage) Christ on a rice cracker!

The day it happened I could see reporting it, as an "hey, look what the celebrity did" piece. After all most people are gossip-mongers at heart. Oo, look what the big celeb did! Naughty Boy, time to take you to task. But it should not be a major topic of discussion on National Talk/Radio shows!

I like talk radio. I started listening to it when we live in BFE Mississippi, and the music choices were rap or country. I like Dave Ramsey quite a bit. Religous views aside, he's a damn good finacial planner. I even don't mind Neal Boortz. I find his Libretarian rantings both insightful and amusing from time to time. But I don't turn on the talk as much as I used to, because here in Memphis, the shows tend toward the ultra-conservative, *Bush is God*, agenda, at least, whenever I turn them on. I do listen to Dave, on an almost daily basis.

Every freaking news update today has had two topics: Israel/Lebanon and Mel Gibson. And the Gibson stuff was often up first! It really says something about us as a people that we apply equal weight to a drunk, insult-spewing driver as we do a freaking WAR! Which is what it all boils down to.

You know, it's not really important in the grand scheme of things but this still irks me off...

We got our first ever negative feedback on our Ebay account.

If I (since it's really just me who does the retail) had actually done something horrible to warrent it it would be one thing. What DID I do? It was discovered that there had been an error in the listing. Okay, the listing error was my mistake. Clarified the problem with the buyer and offered a compromise or a refund and after going back and forth for two days with the buyer, who indicated that they did not want what was actually described in the auction, I refunded their paypal payment. They STILL received positive feedback for the payment. Here's the comment, left 19 days after things were supposedly resolved.

did not communicate to see if i wanted to keep the item, bad customer service

Exactly what part was bad? Admitting to a mistake? Trying to work it out? Refunding the money? Giving essentially free feedback?

If they'd left some feedback complaing about the listing error, I could understand, but....

It just annoys me terribly. I've been very happy proud of having 100% postive feedback with over 1800 unique, happy ebayers. I knew it was only a matter of time before we got hit not matter how hard I worked to keep everyone happy. It sounds funny, but I'd have much rather it have been for an actual PROBLEM, as opposed to someone being petty, ya know?

Oh well, back to the pre-Prerelease grind....

I'm home. I'm exhausted, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I want to curl up in a ball and just sleep for days. But I won't since I have ten tons of work to catch up on.

I will update about my various adventures in a few days, when I have more than 5 minutes to spare.

And, no, I didn't harm the bastard in anyway. Didn't even see him...probably a good thing.


Oh, I will likely not be commenting a lot either, since I'm playing catch-up. But hugs go out to all.

Got back from Vegas. Went to Jackson, MS to run an event. Got back to Memphis. Went to Atlanta to work an event. Got back to Memphis. Have to leave tomorrow to go home to Dothan to deal w/ family.

The bastard hurt her, as in physically, as in a BYSTANDER called the cops because he feared for my sister's life....

And then HE called ME wanting me to take HIS side!!!!!

DON'T fuck with my family. I don't like it.

Okay our phones have been fragged since the storm, so they are working only occassionaly. My tag renewal STILL has not come in, and because the phones aren't working, I can't call and find out what's going on. I can't drive down to the place, because my tags are expired.....

Thank goodness we have road runner so I at least have some contact w/ the outside world...
