So a while back on 7/15 I contacted a seller on etsy, It came back with an auto response saying that they would be gone until late July. So I went on with my life. I got on etsy today to check some stuff out and realized that I hadnt heard back from her so I sent her this
Hey, I know your message said that you would be back in late July. Its mid Augest now and know that you are probably busy, I was just seeing if you needed a reminder.
and this is what I got back
No, I don’t need a “reminder”. The e-mail that you received was an auto-response to your convo’. I don’t mean to sound curt with you, however, I live in Arizona, and my family lives in NY. I don’t feel as tho’ I owe anybody an explanation as to my whereabouts. Etsy has a “let me know when seller returns” option, and you would have been notified when my shop re-opened. I was on vacation, I get to see my family maybe once a year at best, so, please excuse me if I wasn’t here to cater to your needs for a transfer that by the looks of it is not going to be taking place in, hmmmm say “mid” NOVEMBER…. , and on that note…. I simply do not care to do business with people in which whom have zero understanding that sometimes life??? Well… you just can’t always please everybody, now can you…. sorry to dissapoint. Good day to you…
I was a little frustrated!!! I in no way meant that to be rude, but I guess that isnt the kind of person I want to be working with anyways. Dont you think this was out of line? Or am I just having to thin of skin?

wow, her response was completely rude. I think you were ok in contacting her because you expected her to be back by now since that’s what her website said anyways..

You know, you’d think vendors would smarten up a little and remember that for every bride they think they are putting in their place, that bride is on a forum like WeddingBee or Yelp telling everyone to stay away.

Lmao.. is this for real? Don’t even worry about doing business with whoever that is. I say, blast them.. let us know who it is. I def need to avoid them, because that is ridiculous. The last thing I need right now is someone trying to have an attitude with me online, lol.

Well Im glad you all dont think that Im just taking it personally, she was so rude!!!
this is what I sent back
I know it was an auto response. I didnt know there was an option to get notified when a shop re opened I am fairly new to etsy I have only bought two things thus far. I did not mean to come across rude, but I can imagine that if you were out your inbox would be pretty full seen as how these things seem to be popular lately, and nobody is perfect and things are bound to at times slip through the cracks. I have perfect understanding of your family situation as of now, and I can relate. So I dont blame you for wanting to spend time with your family. However, I in no way intended to be rude and it seems that was your goal in your last message. Yes my wedding is in mid November which is a little less than three months away, I am a planner and am just organized. I dont know exactly why you are so angry. I am hoping that you just had a bad day, and for that I am sorry, but I did nothing to deserve the kind of message that you sent. Glad you get to spend time with your family, and you have a good day as well.. I hope you dont treat all of your customers this way.
I think I was pretty nice compared to the message I got, is there a way to turn them into etsy???

Wow! Good response though, I hope they get the hint and apologize. If not I’d consider reporting them to Etsy.

Not only rude, but barely literate.
