It seems like I am surrounded by madmen. There’s always either some troll giving me headaches on YouTube or some customer who I’d just as soon see leave my shop as buy anything, or some random loon on the street going crazy and choosing me as a target, or even some “friend” of mine acting crazy. It’s too much to deal with.
So what if next time someone responds to a kind comment of mine on YouTube with troll behavior I can say “you’re trolling. Stop.”...if next time somebody on the street is going crazy at me I can say, “I don’t have time for this.”...if next time a new customer is going nuts about nothing I can say, “I am to create the best experience possible for my clientele but as a sole proprietor of a small business, there are limits on what I can realistically provide. If my services don’t meet your expectations you have the option to go elsewhere.”...It’s harder to think what to say when friends are going crazy but maybe I can figure out something new.
