I have a heavy load today!! Well, it happened!! I am an eBay seller and have been doing this for the past 8 years or so. I have been "blessed" with lovely customers as well as making many new friends:) Recently I had a customer purchase an item from me. While I was packaging the item I dropped it!! YEP...and it was breakable and it became damaged. I immediately refunded the customer in full explaining what had happened. This did not please her and she decided she wanted the item, no matter what!! Well, this would have been okay except I had tossed the item and no longer had it in my "hot little hands"......I tried to appease her to no avail. Even though she received a refund in full she was not happy and accused me of many devious actions I shall not go into. Problem is this...LIFE IN GENERAL IS TOUGH FOR ME RIGHT NOW...I have some personal issues I am trying to bravely deal with, therefore I have NO ROOM FOR DRAMA. I have reported the situation to eBay along with all the emails etc....I don't know what shall happen but it makes me sad because...I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO COMPASSION...WHERE DID IT GO??? HOW DID WE LOSE IT??? DOES ONE HUMAN WHO IS HURTING NOT COME TO THE AID OF ANOTHER??? I don't understand how as a society we simply seem to no longer CARE. We worry about our cars, our homes, our bank accounts but NOT OUR FELLOW MAN. YEAH...THINK ABOUT IT FOR A MOMENT OR TWO....WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU WERE AT THE MALL, OR GROCERY STORE OR GAS STATION AND SOMEONE GAVE YOU A SMILE, A GOOD DAY OR A HELLO????? Well, I am not gonna give up...tomorrow when I go to do my errands I shall smile at every person I see:) I may even say "hi"...I may go as far as to say "hope ya have a good day"....if you hear of a woman arrested for "being too friendly" please come bail me out!! I have a feeling most folks will think I am "crazy".....such a sad commentary for us all!
