Re: Can you sense negativity?

Thank you, @LTT1

 

BTW, I love your new avatar.  Very strong, actually.  I'm guessing it's for Kate Spade, but it also seems to me you are a strong person.

@Homegirl  I understand what you're saying and agree - how did you get him to leave the premises?

He knew I wasn't pleased.  He was willing to go.  

It made me wonder if he'd been in that situation before and other people had asked him to leave.

So, how long are you going to have to wait for your carpet now?

Can you sense negativity?

 

Yes, from a mile away. I have zero interest in being exposed to negative people.

Re: Can you sense negativity?

@Homegirl, my friend just had a similar experience with an electrician about some work in her home.  Lecturing, condescending, rude.  Big price too.  He never got the job.  

 

I would have done the same thing.  LM

Yes, I had a similar experience and it also was with griping floor people. I just let it roll off, busied myself with other things, and added NO fuel to their fire! A little while later, I offered soda and tea, asked if they needed it cooler in there, and when I told the head guy that I could see how tough their work was and that I appreciated the effort, he changed his tune.  At one point I recall half joking with him, "if I had this job to do on thus hot day, I'd be griping, too."  And I said something about the fact that in my job I had to wrangle people all day and I wasn't sure, come to think of it, if it was harder or not to wrestle with carpet. We both laughed.


This was way beyond having a hard day, @LibbyAnnE

This seemed more part of his character.

He hadn't even begun to work.  

I, too, offer refreshments and words of encouragement.  This wasn't that kind of experience.   He came in with that attitude and that demeanor.


@Homegirl

Hi there. I see what you mean. I was only referring to my experience. I'm so sorry if it sounded as if I were finding fault with you. I should have been more clear about that. ❤️

No worries, @LibbyAnnE

I know it's hard to gauge everything or tailor everything perfectly just in a post.  I took no offense.  I'm glad we're OK!  It's interesting how these things happen in degrees of situation, personality, circumstance, and more.  Nothing is ever black and white, is it?

No, I do not sense negativity, in anyone or any situation. A person or company has to meet what my requirement is when judging what they say, and/or what they do, or do not do. Negativity is not one of my human senses!
