Could you guys please keep the PITY COMMENTS coming on my cards? I really am here for the approval,( I don't just post for "ME").
Ok, off to BURN those cards that haven't gotten any comments...
(I probably should call the FD first, it'll be a big blaze!)
Sheesh!

No pity needed for the any comments left in your gallery, Lisa! I did give some love to a few neglected ones, but you do great work all 'round!

Good grief!! All I can say is how nice of the store lady to give you a discount, and how weird of the other customer to mouth off like that. But better to laugh at it than get stressed by it, and you've given us a laugh too.

Wow, talk about issues. Good for you for finding the humor in the situation. I don't know that I could have done the same. That was sweet of the lady to give you a discount.

That woman has issues! I was stunned just reading that ...it it just pitiful to see people who don't know when to shut their mouths.

You did very well not to say anything...showed great restraint. )) I have encountered people like that and they are really the most miserable.

Haha...what a funny start to this morning. You know, I just couldn't put my finger on what has been bothering me at SCS...I guess it's this "supportive" and "friendly" atmosphere. I'm so glad that lady could enlighten me (and you).

kate - you robbed that store. your gallery is SO not worthy of pity comments [i checked it, and you have some CUTE stuff!].

i wish i was as quick on my feet with cool comments. you handled it well - what a loser the other customer was!

My jaw is still on the floor--I cannot BELIEVE this lady would say something like that! She must have some serious problem...you sure handled it well. I think I would have had to put her in her place, except maybe I would have been too stunned to do it (or I would have been LOL thinking she was JOKING!). How awful!

PS I'll take pity comments any day--I have a lot of "neglected" cards LOL Your cards were all so cute. I would love to have this lady see your cards--I'd BET they are much better than hers!

What are you talking about Lisa, I didn't see ANY cards without comments in your gallery, and certainly none that would have been pity comments, they are gorgeous LOL I don't feel so bad about my lack of comments when I see other gorgeous cards with few comments--it truly takes too much time to see all the cards posted here so I can't take it personally!

Some people just don't have a clue, lol! Not card-related, but I had a wild comment made to me once. I was shopping with my sis a couple years ago. I use a walker generally, so if I want to shop for more than 1/2 hour or so without killin' myself, I use a wheelchair. (Hey, a girl's gotta shop!)

So we're in a shoe store and sis found a pair and she's paying for 'em. I'm sitting in the chair just looking at a display of gorgeous, albeit ridiculously high-heeled, shoes. All of a sudden a lady comes up to me and says, "you're so lucky you can wear any of those shoes and not get tired feet." I think I was back home before my jaw snapped shut and I came up with a retort, lol. Some people.......!

I guess it just takes all kinds, eh?

Okay, so now the paranoid girl in me wonders... are the comments I take as compliments really "pity comments"?? Yikes! Something else to over-analyze...
Thanks for the laughs, though!

What a crabby grouch! People who have the gaul to say stuff like that are pathetic and without any tact or class. Learn when to keep your mouth shut.

...I'm just kidding, I couldn't help myself. I laughed so hard at your story!! Your cards are fine! I left some comments too, and they were NOT pity comments.

LOL...the other side of that coin is, "OMG, what if she thinks this is just a pity comment??!!" For the record, I have never left a pity comment, lol....if I leave a comment that says, "holy cow that's so CUUUUUTE!" it's because I just said that out loud.

hmmmmm....me thinks I smell a sourpuss who wasn't getting comments she was expecting & that nasty little person in her head went to work telling her "must be horrible if you don't even get pity comment."
Sorry for her - she can't even be smiley in the LSS - too bad! so sad!

Some people have no concept of politeness. I'm glad you got a discount. It would have been fitting if the store clerk charged the other lady extra to make up for the discount she gave you.

Oh my - what a wonderful attitude you have. You took a not too pleasant situation and put a totally positive spin on it - and the grouchy lady probably continued on her way to try to spoil someone else's day.

Boy, my stuff must be really bad, as often I don't get pity comments either.

Seriously, sometimes the gallery just moves too fast or the photo isn't clear enough to catch peoples eye. Oh well! Life goes on.

should have asked her what her SCS ID was

Personally If I get a comment, great - but I'd be perfectly happy if the comments would be completely disabled and we just posted cards. Works for me either way.
