Another day from hell - One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?

Another day from hell
First, a reminder to help the Lakota Nation and Viggo's support of them: http://www.livejournal.com/users/araestel/61488.html Feel free to post this elsewhere--the Nation needs help even if you don't bid on the books at Ebay.

Second, a "get well" to my neighbor and f-lister. sileya GET WELL SOON!!! (And sorry about how I answered the phone--today has been horrible just like yesterday. I'm usually much more pleasant.).

Lastly, I just want to cry. I did a web design for someone I thought was a friend and to make a long story short, she's refusing to pay the agreed on price and I needed that money. Not just wanted, *needed*. And to make it worse, she offered me $10 for spending 3 full days on it. Three *days*! Ten dollars???

I just need a good cry.

I am sorry bunny. :(
I wish I could say something to make you feel better but I can't. Sometimes people hurt good people for no good reason, it hurts. I'm sorry. *hugs you*

It sucks and it hurts. I just expected better from someone I thought of as a friend.

*hugs* I don't suppose you have that agreement in writing or something? That really sucks. :(
araestel From: araestel Date: December 20th, 2005 02:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, because this person was a "friend". She was already getting $150 discount. *sigh* Just makes me want to cry. Not just for the money but because yet another person I called friend has taken advantage of me.

That person is absolutely no serious. Even if you can do a favour, I think it's not possible to have smth without paying or giving smth to thank!

I'm really sorry....

*hugs*

*hugs you* that's just horrible from someone who calls himself your friend :(
araestel From: araestel Date: December 20th, 2005 02:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know. And the worst thing? She knows my financial status *and* my health status. Some friend, huh?

That just flat out sucks. Sorry it happened to you.

*hugs*

Cute icon! Can I have that under my tree????

Hey sweets -- Do you have a PayPal account? I certainly can't even begin to cover the amount you deserve but if you would accept a small contribution, I'm all ready to go. :-) *hugs*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 01:39 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh--you're too sweet honey. But there's no reason for me to take any money from you. You keep it and have a great Christmas!!

*hugs*

Some people are really unbeleivable. I mean, I can't imagine she'd think this was a feeby, especially when you'd already talked about a fee. I hope you can get it resolved. What a bitch.
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 01:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah--I am NOT happy about all this. I'd much rather have been lying in bed getting better instead of dealing with shit for no reason.

*hugs hugs hugs*

I am incredibly sad for you, sweetheart. I am here for you anytime if you need to talk, vent, and get some loving.
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 01:42 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks honey--you're too good to me! *hugs*

Sorry you are having such a shitty day. *Sends you hugs*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 10:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks honey! I hope you're feeling better!

10 dollars?! God some people.....
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 10:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Pretty much my thoughts too. *sigh* I *so* love the feeling of being screwed by a "friend". NOT!
wynterhawk From: wynterhawk Date: December 20th, 2005 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
well, you are a member of the mafia. We can go and break some kneecaps for you if you want *pets*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 10:14 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm not one for violence, but the thought of breaking something other than a person is *very* appealing. ;)

Yes, the Lakota's don't have a casino and are really hurting from what I hear.

I'm sorry I got screwed too. Another learning experience I guess.

*huggles*

that website thing is really rediculous. 10 Dollars for 3 days of work?
I'd be really upset too
araestel From: araestel Date: December 21st, 2005 10:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Normally, I'd ask for half up front, but since she was a "friend", I didn't. My stupidity. Won't be doing *that* again. *sigh*

*hugs*
