You all know I signed up for St Petersburg, it's due to start on 3/1. I'm all good with everything so far, although I'm getting a little bit ... anxious about not having a DMC conversion yet. Martina put out the supplies list on 2/4 and said she'd have the conversion out "Probably by friday". So it's been 10 days and no word yet. Someone finally decided to ask and this is the response she got from Martina ...
Mary and all,
it really does not help to send emails - I am doing what I can but I have other things to do as well and each claims to be the most important tast.... I think that I will have it ready on Friday.
kind regards, Martina Weber "Châtelaine" -- Design and NeedleartsDuisburg/Germany
Now, I can understand being busy and all. But I'm just a wee bit irritated about this little snippy response. I mean, we're paying her damned good money to do this, her "Job". (you get paid to do something, it's a service so I would expect some customer service for my money. Just the way the world of commerce works. Or so I thought.)
Am I wrong in thinking this way or am I just being bitchy?
I mean, damn, I go out of my way to be polite to people in my car that are WAY more of a pain than the letter that Mary sent to Martina. It's my job, what I get paid for.
Ah hell, you know what I mean. I just get irritated with people that say they're going to do something, then don't come through. Especially if it's something you're getting paid to do.
I could go on and on about this particular subject. But I'm done.
Hope you all had a lovely VD!!
