I'm over it,
I'm so over it.

Trusting people...
you can
and then again
you can't.

I hate being in the position of calling a scammer, a scammer, but you have to draw the line 'somewhere' and take some action. So I am acting after todays mail delivery or non delivery as the case may be and then going through the process of negative feedback leaving and paypal filing to get my whopping 10 bucks back from an unscrupulous etsy seller. Why bother? Because her feed back is at 50 percent, so she sells and rips from half of her peeps, and sells and mails to the other half.

I was pretty irritated, but I declare as of now, I am over it and taking some action.

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

That is just profound. I wish I'd thought of it but it is a quote from somebody, I found it as I was looking for the meaning of "Zadok blessing". Wow, what I don't know about the Bible is huge and vast. But it's funny how these 'stumbling upons' I find just sort of fits the situation. I really can just think myself into a stupor some times, and come out of it and still be dwelling on my irritation. That is a self imposed destiny.

Does your character exceed or equal your talent and ambition?
Character is who you really are in the dark (within your heart) when temptation and evil are present.

From the same source as above, again, not my own thinking.
Words well said!

That is such a shame Nora!! I hope everything gets resolved soon. I dont understand how some people can run a business the way they do.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that ordeal!
I've been ripped off only one time on etsy. It was for $5, but it is the idea that somebody would deliberately do it in the first place that annoys me. Since that time, I've been very careful about checking out to the best of my ability the buyers on my site. Sadly, I e mailed one potential buyer about confirming addresses and when she didn't answer with 48hrs, I cancelled the sale, even though she has previously had 100% on her profile. She did finally get back to me later and we were able to resolve everything and accomplished the sale anyway with good feelings in the end.
I guess it just doesn't hurt to be extra careful.
