And that's why I have a super-detailed terms of service journal [link] that I make everybody read before offering to commission me, which makes clear that orders are filled in the order they are taken, and that you shouldn't commission me if you want your stuff instantly.
Lol your work is still better then anything I could do andnim a year older then you jus ignore them lol I'm given my old fursuit dases away just to get rid of them and I don't like them lol I haven't shipped them yet but I'm working on it
I have no idea who you are, but hello fellow fourteen year old.
Anyhow, I've got to say, I'm happy I dropped the commission and refunded her. :I The worst part is, she doesn't even seem to see how she bothered me.
I've got the feeling she's grown up being used to just praise from family and friends, and Places she uploads her work, so it makes a bit of sense? Doesn't make it OK though. (She actually says she thinks her heads are the best and such so I've got to say, half my conversations with her, despite being aggravating, ended up with my laughing to myself OTL)
No idea, probably her parents, I'm not sure she could earn that much herself. :I (mind you she wanted to haggle the price down multiple times xD)
The problem with this generation, IMO, is that kids are getting praised even if what they did what pure crap. Getting praised is very mood-lifting, but it's also very ego-lifting. It can get to the point where the person indeed does become butthurt when someone says it's not very good. And by the looks of it, this girl has got one big damn ego. If she's going around saying her heads are the best, she ought to wear a sign around her neck that says "WARNING: I GET BUTTHURT IF YOU DON'T LIKE MY FURSUIT HEADS" or something like that.
I'm guessing that you didn't give her any discounts
Indeed. I mean, my mom is nice enough to tell me if something looks funny (as frustrating as it is to be told something looks bad by your mom OTL) but it's definitely kept me improving P: Because now when I look back, the stuff she points out is completely true. XD I really must say, her ego is terribly high. I dunno if you've heard of them, but there's a suiter with a character called "ROY G BIV" that's a rainbow cat, with black and white as the main color. She went to compare her own head (Which she's been adding random scrap colors she has making a rainbow wolf owo) to say that that suit is just random colors also.
And that's why I make it clear from the beginning that I do all my commissions in the order I recieve the payment and that if anyone complains like the way you're describing it in the OP, I repay the 50% down payment and tell them to never commission me again.
If you didn't do anything for her, why didn't you give her back all of what she paid you? You were doing her a service, if you don't refund her fully for a service that you didn't complete, that's stealing.
