Funny thing was, this guys product gets tons of props on this board too. There's no reason for the owner of this company to be such a dick, and post deceptively like that. If anything, he should have joined as a member, been open about his company and products, and be willing to answer any questions about leather goods, messenger bags, travel bags, man purses, his product/company, etc. Instead, he choose to be an ass and play the ol' "Oh, I just found this wonderful product available here: www.xxxxxx.com What do you guys think about this?" angle. At least he was dumb enough to put the name of his dog in his username, among other slipups.

There was a particularly good one where someone emailed me "how can we advertise on your site" and at the same time someone "else" (same IP) posted a couple of threads about "I found this great new site, check it out". Same day.

Do people really think I/we won't mind?

Heh, it';s not a 'mind' thing, it's that they think people are that stupid. The problem is, most of the time, they're right. ~ Huntsman

If I was a jerk, I'd order a ton of products from man-purse guy, have them work hard on some detailed packaging instructions, THEN have the order cancelled at the last minute.

Generation Y types in the workforce that require pats on the back for showing up at 9 AM, constant praise for doing middling quality work, and cash bonuses for meeting deadlines. When I entered the workworld 10 years or so ago, I did this stuff just because it was my job and didn't stand at my bosses desk after turning in an assignment waiting for praise.

This kind of person is fun to have in class because you get to bitch-slap them with their B- on an exam and then shoot down all of their lame protestations about why their answers are correct even though they are patently wrong.

At least we'll always have our fond memories of walking uphill, both ways to school every day.

It was snowing too. Don't forget that. And we didn't have shoes either.

the douche over at projectbeltway who insists that wearing pleated pants at your natural waist causes them to billow out and make you look larger than you are. What?

Not getting an invitation to go see some of my senior friends graduate high school. For one it's invitation only, and each person only gets 10 tickets to give out. You can take your family, and still have to hope that not all your family members can go because you don't have enough tickets anyway. Ugh.

High school graduation. Not only does no one care but the parents, but certainly no one remembers.

Customers or Potential ones asking me a question via PM about a product I carry and then after getting a detailed response not having the courtesy of responding with a thank you or I'll think about it or anything of the sort.

Yes I am a retailer trying to sell you something but a person too and if you walked into a store and asked a question you would say thank you when you left. Right? Right?

Well...I suppose those of you that don't thank me wouldnt say thank you either.




PS: Oh... by far the worst thing for me is those that drive up the street looking for the parking spot oblivious to people behind them.
