Well, what I mean is that sometimes people can just be plain rude.
As well as teaching I have, as some of you might know, my own small business.
It evolved over a couple of years (lots of safety certification and legislation to comply with – understandably) and I now regularly do craft fairs and shows. I make soap and other skin care and bathing products (all natural ingredients, many organic ingredients, essential oils [not fragrance oils]} so, all in all, products of really good quality. The following are just some examples of what people have said to me at craft fairs I have done.
‘I could buy cheaper in Superdrug.’
‘I hate bath bombs.’
‘It’s all a bit boring.’
‘Why don’t you sell any Lush products?’
‘You should be a rep for Natural Living then you wouldn’t have to make your own stuff.’
‘I don’t use soap – messy, horrible stuff.’
‘Your house must really smell.’
However, all that said, there have been many more people who have been lovely (and bought my products) so all in all I enjoy doing it and later today will be making another batch of my latest soap – Honey and Calendula – which has proved very popular.
What astonishingly rude things have people said to you?
Have a good day
