Frustrations and working through them.

Saturday, June 02, 2018

This has been a totally frustrating day! My hubby and I run our own business and dealing with the public can sometimes be very frustrating and this was one of those days!!!! Every phone call was either a break down or a jerk. The public can be jerks! Don't tell a person in business that you already know what's wrong because you researched it on the internet and I have the parts but "can you fix it?" Really???? If you know what's wrong, you fix it. We have plenty of customers that trust us to diagnose and repair your problem and they buy the parts from us!!! Thank heavens this was only half a day becaue the next person was liable to get their head bitten off. But then I come home and have work I need to do at home that all I want to do is eat. At least hubby is calm enough to say, "Don't let them win". With the help of him and a couple of my spark friends, I think I've worked my way through this and will stay away from bad from me food!
And please, if you're dealing with an independent business person, don't let them know that you went somewhere else first. It's hard enough being in business without having that rubbed in your face. A business person or employee deserves respect too.
Thanks for letting me get this off my mind!!! Maybe now I can forget it and enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend.

    I run my own very small business. Cleaning. What I hate the most is when someone says "I want you to use these cleaning products". I am a cleaning product junkie and try them all. I know what works and what doesn't. I feel your pain!

    Well, there are people and then there are people...and many are folks I"d just as not deal with. Glad it helped to be able to express yourself in a safe place. Hope the rest of your weekend is more peaceful and calm!

    About 35 years ago, we had a rental house. Even back then, its unbelievable what some of the renters pulled.

    You go girl, I so know what you are talking about, I've been working with the public and some can make you want to just slap them but you gotta be nice. I don't work anymore but for the past 5 years I ran register for a Walmart. There are some rude people who shopped at that store. You deserve a trophy for that kind of day. emoticon emoticon emoticon
