@Olive-Popeye:  I was sympathetic until this point:

“Carrie at cdk designs is just a horrible human being. Period.”

I get you’re upset but that’s a REALLY harsh judgment.. don’t you think?

@Chrysoberyl:  Agreed.

Your review would be a lot more creditable if you didn’t make a personal attack, OP. It’s unfortunate that she did that but as you said yourself you never actually hired her. It sounds like she did a lot of work for you without being paid.

Tbqh it sounds to me like she wAnted to know exactly what you wanted and could not get a clear idea if how to proceed… I think it was unfortunate but fit doesn’t sound like she set out to do a bad job

@Olive-Popeye:  Again, that’s a personal attack and you’re judging her based on one event. I’ve done some shitty things in my past. Am I a terrible person no matter WHAT?

@Olive-Popeye:  Okay we get that you are frustrated and you clearly will not let up on attacking this person rather than her business. So I think I am going to step out now.

Yes I would be uspet, but would I say that she is an awful human being? You don’t even know her. You have no idea what kind of friend she is, what kind of mother she might be, what kind of sister she is, etc.

I do hope you learn to not judge people so harshly in the future. Best of luck to you.

@Olive-Popeye:  I agree with pps. When you call someone a terrible human being and say they’re evil etc. it makes YOU sound like the asshole for blowing this thing waaaaay out of proportion.

Agree with PP, you have reason to be upset, the vendor could and should have answered your questions.  However we have different definitions of evil.  This doesn’t come close to my definition.  I’d pay more attention to your review if it weren’t so emotionally written.

@Chrysoberyl:  I generally reserve “horrible human beings” for murderers, pedophiles, people that hurt animals or push old ladies into oncoming traffic myself. I wouldn’t say a crappy vendor is a horrible human being. A jerk maybe. Unprofessional and inconsiderate definitely. Then again maybe something happened in her life too. I had a vendor fall off the radar and come back to apologize after because her mother had died. You never know what is going on in someone else’s life that’s more important than an escort card.

 

That said, sorry OP that you had a bad experience. I was fortunate in my etsy picks, all but one was really good, and the one that sucked at least got my stuff on time ..it just was really cheap looking (bird cage card holder).

Sounds like she’s been more than extremely accommodating to you until the end. You both dropped the ball at the end. She should have made your listing and continued to communicate, even if just to tell you to find someone else. You, on the other hand, kept asking for changes to be made and then complaining that it was getting so close to your wedding without being willing to pull the trigger on a finalized design. For all you know, she became swamped with a huge order or something personal like a death in the family came up. Calling her evil and a terrible human being just makes you look worse. Even if she ultimately screwed up, she did a lot of free work for you. You should just move on, congratulate yourself on being able to pull it all together anyway, and cherish the good things about your wedding.

OP I’m sorry you had a bad experience. Luckily so far I’ve only had good experiences on etsy.

Unfortunately the ad hominem attack you’ve made against the seller weakens your case considerably. Sticking to the facts about her business practices would have made for a much more powerful argument.
