Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
