People should be thankful I'm a writer.
Because when I'm really really pissed I choose to usually write about it rather than start something in public. My mom just raised me with too many manners....
Here are the few things that make me REALLY mad - they kind that burns a scar into my brain where a once favorable impression of something once was.
1. If you attack my child verbally or physically.
2. If you attack any member of my family verbally or physically.
3. If you go after something I worked hard for.
In the past few months I've dealt with all three of these situations.
I've had my 2 1/2 year old child called a bully
I've had people close to me bad mouthed by other people I thought were close to me.
And just recently I've had someone blatently say they were stealing one of my Moose Threads designs.
Yep, you read that correctly.
This person posted a pic of one of my skorts, noted how beautiful it was and the proceeded to state that they were going to make it for thier "daughter".
IN A PUBLIC CHAT ROOM
This lady was more bold than Rosie O'Donnell sporting a string bikini in a wind storm.
First off lady....
That's great you find inspiration in my work, but don't come out and tell me to my face that you are just going to steal the design.
If you like it so much just buy it.
You sell items in the same genre. I'm not stupid.
At first when I read that I thought my boiling anger was a result of having PMS without an accessible chocolate source nearby. When I have a chocolate craving I'm like Janice Dickenson looking for a shot of Botox. I need my fix or else I'll start to fall apart.
But then... after scarfing down a bowl of Coco Puffs.... the blood and sugar began to return to my brain.
I started to think I was overreacting. I started to wonder if my eyes has deceived me, that in fact I didn't read what I thought I did.
But after I checked with a few of my fellow Homefronters they confirmed I wasn't nuttier than a bunch of drag queens in a thong competition.
It just goes to show you that you never know what type of characters you'll meet in life....
