I know I shouldn't let things like this bother me, but darn it, they do!
I just saw something on FB that was really rude and hurtful. We are doing a bridal show in August, and the organizer does a post about our business once a month leading up to the bridal show, to introduce us as one of the vendors and posts a picture of one of our cakes (we send her the pictures we want her to use). So she did one today, and posted a picture of a cake we did a while back. I "liked" the post, so it is sending me notifications when there's activity on it. I just got a comment notification and went to look at it, and someone had commented "That's an ugly cake sorry."
This was a cake that I had designed and we worked hard on it and were really proud of it.
Now, I don't know this person at all, it's just someone who saw the post and I guess felt the need to comment. (They are not a competitor or anything) What I don't understand is why?? Why would someone do that? If you think it's ugly, ok, whatever, but why wouldn't you just keep your opinion to yourself? Especially on a post like that, it's not like it's just one of her friends posting it, it's a business posting about another business. I just don't get why someone would be so rude.
I've never, EVER had anyone say that one of our cakes is ugly, or even just so-so. We always get really good feedback on our cakes. It's an icky feeling, that's for sure! :(
