Well, folks, it’s that time again – time for me to deny jackasses any more of my mental real estate.
It used to really mess up my day when people would fail to read item listings and shipping/handling info before ordering and then file a dispute or leave crappy feedback because they were oblivious to what they signed up for by ordering something from me.
But sadly, there are lots of folks like that, and I eventually decided that life was too short to have a messed up day because of them.
So now when I’m forced to deal with one, I have a tiny little party for my customers that *don’t* suck instead.
Somebody decided to take a page out of Glenn the Frizzled Bantam’s handbook and get their tetchy asses disinvited from the party… but only after making me drop everything else when they basically decided to force-jump the queue and make me jump through hoops they created due to their inability to read shop policies, follow directions, and calm the everloving hell down.
Well, my strategy for this these days is to instead celebrate and thank the customers and clients I have who aren’t jackasses and who understand that I’m a human being and not a spiritual vending machine – and that the way things work these days, what with wars and pandemics and supply chains and gas prices and climate stuff and everything, is a good bit more complicated, and often a good bit slower, than it used to be just three years ago.
So if you’re a customer or potential customer who reads listings and policies and isn’t going to pester me with questions you were already provided the answer to – in short, if you’re not a jackass – then you can use coupon code NOTANASS0823 at checkout to get 15% off your order. Good through August 22 (that’s just a bit over 24 hours).
