Neave,

I completely agree!  Kiss  Let's face it, good art is rarely a quick, instant gratification thing.  Though I do wish it hadn't taken you quite so long!

Neave,

Ugh!  I can relate.  Everyone wants everything done...yesterday!  Well, it can't be done.  Four days notice does sound impossibly, unrealistically short.  And what gall, to keep calling you!  Yell

How did it all work out?  I hope she ultimately gained some sense and realized she was harassing you over something that couldn't be done so quickly...it's just a cake, not a life saving machine!

Neave,

Ugh, what a nightmare!  Glad you taught her not to demand things immediately.  She sounds like one of those people who think the world revolves around them and we are all just slaves to order around.  Probably is also the type who has rarely (if ever) been told "no."

I say you did exactly the right thing.

Neave,

Exactly.  Forget it...people like that aren't worth raising your blood pressure over their behavior!

Neave,

Oh, yeah, I've been in that spot too many times.  Even if someone is paying a lot of money, it's still not worth all of the aggravation.  (Except usually those kinds of people are cheap and don't want to pay well, but they love to harass others.)

Neave,

Yuck, she sounds like she has a mental problem!  If she was going to find some way to get it cheaper, then she should have gone elsewhere and left you alone.  The world doesn't exist only for her!  She had no right to demand a cheaper price.

I bet when someone asks her for something, she'll only do it if she gets paid a lot.  No, it doesn't work that way!  Some people have a lot of gall.  Yell

Neave,

Serves her right!  If she's going to boss people around like she has a right to, then she doesn't deserve a beautiful hand-decorated cake.  10 euros is probably all she wanted to spend, anyway...glad that it wasn't you who ended up dealing with her!  (Though I feel bad for whoever she dealt with at Asda.  If it's anything like Walmart here, those people work their buns off for very little money.  Cry  Certainly, they take a lot of abuse from pissed off people.)

Neave,

That's so sad...but definitely not surprising.  I'm amazed that the majority of the employees at the local Walmart can be nice and cheerful after all of the crap they put up with.  It's so unfair.  Cry  The money isn't very good and they have no choice.  Cry
