Thread: My True Calling

  1. #181
    WTF is wrong with people? Seriously, I'm pretty frugal but I'm not going to haggle over a 1.00. This crazy lady and I have been haggling over some shoes she wants and after my last counteroffer, she offers me a 1.00 less. I accepted because I'm not going to lose a sale over a 1.00 but damn... Oh, and the kicker is that she has a sign in her closet bitching about low ball offers (she originally low balled me) AND a offer chart. SMDH... those are always the cheap asses.

    Oh, and I get down voted on Reddit for saying this but when people bitch about not getting 5 star ratings or love notes when the item was perfect, I tell them to ship promptly, make their packing look nice and write a friggin Thank You note. BTW, I upped my packaging game. I used my Staples ink rewards to buy some nicer gift wrap and I tie it up with black ribbon and use a blank white index card with a black Thank You sticker on one side and I write my note on the other. I pay 0 because I buy all my packaging supplies with my ink rewards.



    The proof is in the puddin'. My last few sales...

    I would have him send them back but I think he's getting attached to them. He's been going around the house wearing them and humming that song from Team America.

    Definitely. He's so proud I found him a nice black leather belt with a removable buckle so he could sport the Fender Guitar buckle (with a nudie girl riding a guitar) that his dad got him.

    I had a cool Fender shirt with a girl in a skirt looking up at a big worm smoking a hookah on a mushroom . I wore it a lot at a part time bartending job I had in the early 80's in a basement Ratskeller bar in West Germany . I bought it at a music store in Southern Indiana . He would have loved it .

    The front end struts I ordered online didn't have no fancy Staples wrapping nor thank you note. I'll probably down vote that merchant now.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    First off, they're not down voted, they're just not doing enough to prompt buyers to go through a few more clicks and write something.

    You didn't get the fancy Staples wrapping paper because your cheap ass probably low balled him on the struts.

    True. I am amazed how much Bezos has been saving me. Just ordered more front struts for another vehicle. $250 compared to $600 for the same struts at local auto parts stores.

Before Christmas, he found out that I collect toys for sick kids for Christmas and he brought in a huge bag of really nice things for me to take to the children's hospital so I went around the bar and gave him a hug. I guess he took that as a come on and asked me out - he knows I'm married, btw. I thanked him and reminded him I'm married but he's only gotten more aggressive. I was off over Christmas and he brought in a bunch of gifts for me and last Monday was the first time I saw him. I thanked him for the lovely gifts and sweet card and he started telling how much he loves me. I reminded him that I'm married and he decided that I won't date him because I'm racist.
