sorry for the unexpected dealy from 2022s orders ,
but ... all these mutable unforeseen Delay's
of 2022 was surly not any "STUNT" of my doing!
or was a massive rush on my sales pages
of my manipulating or doing or wishes!
Not when your a ONE MAN shop - no way (((Right?)))
or was any delay my doing at all for some selfish
reasons ( no way ) I WORK everyday
of my LIFE at this JOB~ if I break away its for 4 hours
is considered my earned time away - never a DAY~
*The FACTORS that caused the delay were:
*COVID 19 prevented me from hiring help
*COVID 19 killed FIVE people close to my HEART,
most were family, it blinded my Guitar playing UNCLE,
we were in a WAR against COVID and we were LOOSING
*SOUL CRUSHING BAD NEWS 24/7
then was a two month
*LONG EXTREME HEAT WAVE
inside my shop was 102* everyday
and the AIR was not moving it cooked away at you inside -
I also had Doctor and Dentist appointments
because I'm 65
that was also a motivation to
BUY MORE pickups i make
...was me hitting age 65 makes people think
you will DIE soon??? wtf?
but they always add this:
"GOD FORBID" as if that helps me!
and so the Hording started like wildfire!
some people ordered 10 sets !
and no they were "NOT FLIPPING THEM"
the pickups have date codes in two years
I have never seen anyone
SO CALLED "FLIPPING" Don Mare pickups
as I saw written for all to see for all time!
as writing on a Forum puts a hell of allot
of POWER in the hand of others! and
accountability is NIL!
(NICE World we live in??) ha!
I also turning 65 on some mornings was a battle
filled with CHRONIC PAIN that I had to manage
without pills or the GREEN LEAF CBD
stuff of which I cannot stand either or... as in...
(no need for weed here!)
Then PAYPAL pulled some unforseen junk,
I never wanted to have to HIDE THE PAYPAL LINKS,
I never had too for 18 years so why in 2022
was I getting
$20k in sales almost over night? as
anything past $20k
within a month starts a LOCK_OUT with PAYPAL
held $10,500 of your money - it was suppose
to be SHIP
the front end and back end of those orders
to get the LOCK
taken off or wait 1-year (then I have heard
that's when they
block your password and will not reply to you, and they
legally keep that 10K)
SO I REFUNDED like... 30 people to
get all that locked away money back in their hands!
I was fined $450 in fees basically -
so there was a week I lost
batting with PAYPAL,
next was whatever unforeseen delays come up in a
MANS DAILY LIFE as we never know whats ahead!
again I'm the only worker
I am also a Boutique Builder - this is not A BUSINESS
or a STAFFED FACTORY - on my 1099
I am a guitar pickup contractor -
is what that boils down too -
I am after a A HUMAN - not a STAFFED FACTORY
or some full on staffed Business -
I am always one on one and HONEST
with my Customers and I always fulfill all the paid orders
and I never took a day off -
"Time off during a day yes" but never can I take full days
100% off or I get behind NO VACATION IN 18 years -
NO SAVINGS ACCOUNT -
and MIN WAGE is $17.22 that's of $30k a year clear
after taxes, I have rarely had $20k a year to myself in
I have been #1 in Customer service FIVE of those was
already at FENDER LACE SENSORS in
Huntington Beach Ca.
then my 18 years here - I was always able to answer the
phone and talk for over an hour most every-time using
the Bluetooth as I worked -
I also take this job so serious I endured two nervous
Breakdowns from it - this is another reason my body
slowed down around work - as it was in fear of the
place causing it to go down that rabbit hole again.
it made it harder for me then before those happened
to me- it was not me Pulling a STUNT -
lastly today FABLES BECOME FACTS ONLINE - gone are the days
of debates and fact seekers - only a few OG's left that remain online
and are great help to others. but its a sea of mud to swim thru to get
great info. besides LYING is in FASHION now - just turn on the news! its
being done to us daily! even by our last 3 Presidents!!!
and that is another Bummer and MORAL buster - is we have been hit
with 2 years of HORRIBLE NEWS DAY AND NIGHT- lately it's all NUKES
and www-3 24/7 pop that in the ole Lunch Pail and head into the
shop for a nice full moral filled productive day at work (((Right?))) lol
