Hey there planner peeps,
There is something that has been bothering me for some time now I feel that the only way I can get it off my chest is by speaking to someone or smacking someone.
Let it be known that I can’t stand fake people. Especially those who pretend to be nice on social media and then talk smack about you behind your back! I understand how this happen with people you met in real life. But for it to happen within the planner community is a tad bit ridiculous.
So sometime ago I blogged about how a certain person had a large amount of negative things to say towards me and the swag bags that I provided for a planner event. Well, it hasn’t stop there. Let me catch you up.
After the humiliating conversation I decided to attend event. Not only did I participate, I also provided a swag bag to EVERYONE that attended. INCLUDING the specific lady that had all those negative things to say. What was unfortunate was that three specific packages didn’t make it to me on time. Now, I could have been the selfish person I was made out to be and keep the items to myself, but instead I informed the ladies who attended the event that I had receive the packages and that they could either meet me near my home for the stickers or they could wait for them to be shipped out. The amount of responses I received was unfortunate. Only a small handful of ladies wanted the three remaining shop items.
Now like everyone else, I have a life to tend to so shipping the items was not my priority. If the ladies wanted them badly they could have come to pick them up. (you know what I mean?) Well, a certain someone decided to take into their own hands and post about me and the swag bags on social media. Why you ask? Because according to her, she wasn’t sure if everyone got a swag bag. I didn’t see why she made it her business nor her concern. But she did it anyways AND she tagged the sponsored shops in the post. Now why would she go and do that. It wasn’t a thank you post to them, in fact it was nothing to concern them about. Because of that particular post, I had to explain to the shops that it wasn’t pertaining to them and that it was a misunderstanding.
During this time I was also informed (by of course an anonymous source) that this exact person was messaging the shop owners about me. WTF? First saying thank you for sponsoring the event AND then to throwing me under the bus about using the remaining items in a giveaway. Her reason and concern about my giveaway? She wasn’t sure if everyone got one.
What is wrong with people now days? Now if I spilled the whole bag of beans (dropping names and showing pictures) I believe people’s perspectives on this particular group of women would definitely change. But I feel that karma will catch up to these ladies.
