Was she asking you to comp her a room in return for the magazine? Or just asking for help her find a room?

Is she sending you the magazine?

I don’t know what MLK is but she’s asking for a freebie?

I would figure out who her higher up is and contact them (her publisher?). If she is the head honcho, I would threaten her by telling this story to the editor of your local paper or some other media outlet. Unbelievable.

@PrncssDva: Absolutely! I worked for a magazine and the Publisher was head honcho not the editor. I bet this woman does this a lot and the publisher has no clue! Want me to draft an email for you?? 😉

I can’t stand unprofessionalism. Whether it’s like this example, the service industry or customer service. Or the b!tch at the grocery store who texted insted of helping us bag our groceries!

Yikes! PPs are right, she definitely has no right to make those demands. Find a higher up and then call the circulation/business department or mailroom, they will have no problem getting you a copy. I work for a trade mag, also free–we put in short print run orders if we run out, NEVER make demands of the people requesting extras!!

Dear Publisher:

I was under the impression that you published a free magazine and I emailed Mrs. _________, your editor, to enquire about obtaining a copy after learning that a photo of myself appears in your (Month/date/year) issue.

I would like to bring to your attention her reply to me which I consider unprofessional and, to be honest, I was taken aback at her request.

She was ready to pawn an extra issue in return for a hotel stay using my employee discount. When I refused, she highlighted her unprofessionalism even further by stating that she “just wanted to see how badly I wanted a copy”.

Please assure me that there are in fact only a few copies of the magazine left and I was not refused one because of what seems like a vindictive reply to an already absurd request.

I also hope that Mrs. ________________ does not practice making “deals” with your advertisers and clients on a regular basis.

Awaiting your reply,

Prncss

Ps. If the editor spot becomes available, I do know a sweet bee who would be interested in the position. (LOL! Just kidding about the p.s.!)
