    I have this one new customer who is the worst customer of all time. Keeps nickel and diming me over every little freaking thing. Asshole is placing a tiny order and thinks he can be my Turkish distributor so keeps talking about "great cooperation in future" but has called me like 5 times to haggle over his $1500 order. Worthless.

    Then today he asked me to mark 0 value on his commercial invoice. I played dumb as long as I could, pretending I didn't understand, asking why I would do that, etc. til finally he blurted out, defeated, "It is to avoid paying customs duties." I could almost sense a twinge of shame in his voice at having to state it so bold-faced. He was pissed when he got off the phone.

    I just wish they'd cancel the f*cking order already.


    welcome to my life - I feel for you, man!

    there is a huge conference in Chicago this week - not in my field, but a lot of my end users and distributors come to it every year. every fucking year, I get calls from people asking me to take them out to dinner this week, and I have to scramble to set it up. so this year, I got in front of it and tried to set up go, meetings and meals in advance - I sent out emails and called people a month ago, with reminders every week. didn't help - nobody wanted to set up in advance, and one more fucking time my week is being wasted by people who call me and think that I can drop what ever I'm doing and have dinner with them and 6 friends, and then pick up the bill.

    Just found out I'm homeless come Dec 2. Apparently, there was a miscommunication with my landlord. Anyone have a room open in Seattle for December?

    Month to month rent (which is surprising since it's not at all a bad building). I gave the landlord notice in writing the beginning of the month. I saw him in passing a week ago and said to forget about the notice if he was having trouble finding a new tenet this time of year. He was relieved and agreed to discard the notice. I gave him a call today and it turns out he had forgot about our conversation and had a tenet lined up for Dec 2. It's my fault for not confirming by writing. The guy has sort of a casual relationship with the tenets so I didn't think it was needed.

    Talk to a lawyer and don't give up so quickly!

    Ah, I've been here since August. I plan on heading down to California for two weeks in mid-December and a friend is letting me house sit his place until I leave. I'll just find a better place when I return.

    That goddamn Vampire Weekend song "Holiday" that's being used in both Honda and Hilfiger commercials right now. It's enough already!

    BTW: my back is killing me. I spent part of yesterday loading firewood into the truck, including some honking-big oak logs, probably 100 lbs or more. Couldn't really life the damn things so I tumbled them upwards into the truck. Then I took care of a bunch of other stuff throughout the day, and finally - at the end of the day I was unloading dishes from the dishwasher and *twang* - my breath catches and I can't move. Threw my back out while hoisting a dessert plate. A fucking dessert plate!
    Right there with you T-Rex. The muscle I strained about 2 weeks ago locked up on me Sunday night. I was walking around with my hips shifted all the way to the right. That was a blast. [​IMG]
