Today a young man left my costume Shoppe at an extremely busy time while yelling over his shoulder…”I hope you go out of business”…Let me set this scene, we are family owned, loved and operated and my immensely busy and kind friends help out this season of Halloween costuming out of kindness and enjoyment. It is one week before Halloween… They love waiting on folks, helping them with their costume and the general feeling of merriment. We had a great day with lots of wonderful customers that were pleased and delighted…but this day brought someone that was a little demented and dissatisfied with their life and ability to find a costume to yell out something mean on his way out of my little shoppe. Well I want to say this to this coward…”You don’t know me” In fact, you do not know my staff or the hours and love we put into every costume and accessory. You do not know that I am a mother, grandmother, pet owner, dancer, teacher, business owner, sister, aunt, …you only know that your selfish needs were not met and all the frustration had to come out of you in an ugly way.
So if you are not satisfied with anyone or any business at any time and you have any class at all….just leave….that is enough of a statement. Really no one wants to see your bad side and “You don’t know me” or my family or friends but I know you are someone I do not wish to know or visit my Shoppe again. So do me a favor, pretend I am out of business, because “You don’t know me”….and gratefully I don’t know you.
Happy Make Believe,
