I got threatened today in the line of duty.
I sold a rug. I thought the rug to be in nice condition (i do not sell rugs that i think are not up to standard). My customer, who had been giving me the run-around via email and text for at least three days, mind you, decided she would show up at 3pm, not 6pm, so i had to adjust my plans, which i did. i met her at my house, and brought her the rolled up/taped rug, and asked her if she wanted to look at it. She denied this opportunity, saying she trusted me that it wasn’t burnt (why would it be burnt? i didn’t smoke on it…).
Well a few hours later… I get one helluva angry voice message. However, it still ended with decency. Although she said I am a person who does not live up to my word, and the rug was dirty and burnt (with an iron, apparently. i had not noticed this), she said that one day, the $35 she spent on me is going to be $35 i had to spend. Little did she know, I’d taken out a pole and lost my bumper like an hour ago, perhaps she has powers. And little does she know, before that i donated nice clothes to a stranger who was very touched and felt i’d done a mitzvah. But she said she wishes me well and “god bless.”
Apparently, anger grabbed ahold of her and she texted me that if she doesn’t get her $35 back, she’s going to show up at my front door and inform my neighbors how i do business.
1. my neighbors know damn well how i do my business.
2. that would be a written threat
3. she wants to play, i’ll call the police.
4. would have been happy to give her money back had she asked for it in a kind fashion.
