i think maybe this is my first post i have written while feeling very, very annoyed.
very annoyed indeed.
why would you put a melon helmet on a cat? and why would you place not one, not two, but SIX totally bogus giant orders from my etsy shop? if you are the person(s) behind this, and you are reading this, all i have to say is that i really hope that kharma gets you for real.
i have been sewing my little hank butt off trying to keep up with orders, and i even closed the shop for a few days to try and recover and have a little time to relax. i questioned these orders from the time they were placed, but am now certain they are totally bogus. it is not all that uncommon for someone to purchase items from my shop for the first time through an account that was set up that same day. often folks discover my shop through blogland or internetworld, and do not yet have an etsy account, which you are required to set up before purchasing from my shop.
but seriously, people. the orders total over sixteen hundred dollars and about 40 items. i am currently figuring out how to get my shop back in order and avoid this problem in the future, with the help of the etsy team.
i know i should not write about this, but this blog can't be all handbags and sunshine all of the time, because sometimes life isn't all handbags and sunshine.
if you are reading this and are one of the folks who placed the bogus orders, please be a bit more adult and contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk about whatever the problem you have is in a more direct and helpful way.
that is the only four-letter word i will type, though i am thinking quite a few others.
has anyone else ever had this problem?
i should have the shop open again later tonight, and will have new items and shoulder bags ready and listed sometime friday.
