I was just reading a post on MJF about someone who got had on the bartering thing. That hits close to home with me.
Now, don't get me wrong - I love a good barter and it is fun, but there are those times when I get had by the person that I barter with. It's happened 2 or 3 times so far and it's frustrating!! Grrrr.
Listen - If you want to barter, then make sure you can hold up to your end of the deal. Now I'm not going to mention any names since you already know who you are, but I'm still waiting on a barter from last October!! I guess I can kiss that goodbye. This person is still bartering with others and so are the ones that still owe me from 3 months ago! Ughhhh. :(
I do, however, have a few ladies that I barter with who are golden. Tribalcime (Lisa) is one of them. She is the sweetest person and makes sure that she sends her stuff out asap and everything she barters is awesome!
Now, I know that postage is high and so is the price of gas. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THAT BEFORE YOU AGREE TO A BARTER!!!!!
I don't think that I will be bartering for awhile except with the few that I trust. It's sad that in a day where we all need each other and where a helping hand is always welcome, that there are still people out there who want to make it difficult.
Lisa, Denise, Deb, Linda, and others, you are terrific!!! All the rest who fall short, well all I can say is please stop bartering and because it makes the other person sad :(
Anywho, vent is over now. Just had to get that off of my chest!
Hopefully the next post will be more pleasant!! HA!
