I’m sure we’ve all heard variants on this theme. My question is, does it irritate you? For me, it makes me wonder why they’re ordering from me, or if they think I selectively choose which projects to do my very best work on, giving everyone else scraps from my notebook?
It also typically highlights a fraught relationship with a needy and fussy buyer who might turn into an irrational satanic minion at the drop of a hat, too. So really, buyers, please don’t say this to sellers. It’s a loaded, slightly antagonistic sentiment that gets little red flags flying all over the place. Have trust where you place your money!
And yes, I am dealing with one right now… sigh
