Why can't decorators understand that there's nothing wrong with asking for a deal. You're free to say yes or no, but don't get all het up if someone asks.
This last email from the bride is out of line, but that she asked at all isn't.
ASKING for a "deal" is no problem. We all deal with it from time to time. Asking for a $1000 order and then insinuating that the decorator in question is OVERPRICING it at $350 most DEFINITELY is out of line. As is acting like she's "owed" the discount because she has a friend with her.
And the 2nd e-mail from the girl is appalling.
And just what is this "het up" stuff? Whatever.
We're here to support Didi5 and her decision--not to pick apart whether or not the bimbo bride was "right" or "wrong" for asking for a "discount."
It's amazing to me, for one, that you consider the intimidation tactics and "bargaining" strategies used by this bride as just "asking for a discount."
If I were to get "het up" at anything---That would probably be it.
