I am just not a happy camper today…

Up until the end of December, I sold Avon products.  I signed up about 5 years ago and tried a number of times to build a customer base, with not a ton of luck.  I sold some here and there to people at work and did a couple of fundraising things.  I like the product and it was nice to get a bit of a discount.

But you know what?  I found I generally spent more than I made and when I sat down and looked at the numbers, I was spending about $50 more than I made every 2 weeks.  $50 every 2 weeks is $1300.00 a year!!!

So, I decided to deactivate.  I sent an email to the district manager asking her to de-activate my account.  I thought it was all settled.

Until this afternoon when I got home.

There was a nice big bag full of brochures for the next campaign telling me I can get FREE PRODUCT, and that I must place an order by Sunday.  That I need to place an order to keep my account open.  Your customers would MISS YOU.  Blah, Blah, Blah…

Apparently she’s going to call me this evening.  I just sent an email to tell her that I want to deactivate and asking for her to pick up the package she left today.  I just know she’s going to try and strong arm me into continuing.  Not. Gonna. Happen. 

Things like this make me grumpy…I don’t like to feel pressured.  GRRRRR.

Now that I have moaned and complained, you can go back to your regularly scheduled programming…
