This old dude in my cooking class emailed me today to tell me all about how he thinks my class sucks. I know he's wrong, but I'm seriously bummed. I wrote a long email apologizing for his misunderstanding about what the class would cover, and offered him a refund if he wants it. I hope he takes it, because I do not want to have to teach in front of the crotchety old bastard for the rest of the session.

I don't wish to channel Mitt Romney, but...

You can fire a customer too.

If he takes his money and leaves, great. Out of sight, out of mind. If he doesn't, fire him.

Some men just want to watch the sausages burn.

If he's really a crotchety old man you have no chance to please him NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO!

cut your loses and give yourself a break.

it's funny how 100 people can tell us we're good at something and ONE person can make us doubt ourselves.

You're awesome, Clod. Fuck that fucking fucker.

Seriously. Yeah. refund him, thank him for his "feedback" and move on.

There's the old 1/3 rule: a third of the class will love it, a third will hate it, and a third will be lukewarm. Of the third that hate it, a third of them will be douchebags.

YEAH! Ride on him WITH CLEATS!

Yeah, dude replied to my nice professional email. What he actually did was make in-line comments, highlighted in red. It was nothing but argumentative bullshit like "I never used the word X." He informed me that he would not be sitting through the last two classes, but does not want his money back because he would like to still receive the followup email I send after each class referencing all the websites and other things mentioned that day. Win-win for me!

I'm assuming this is a GFCF cooking class and not more of your white trash grasshopper pie tornado cake cooking class. That might account for his crankiness. The whole IBS thing, I mean. Not the lack of recipes involving mini marshmallows ensconced within lime green jello.

This morning, my 21 year old daughter and 18 year old son got into an altercation and the girl called the police. I am such a proud daddy!

Spexxvet 10-26-2012 11:34 AM

And I have to have a wisdom tooth extracted at 3pm!

Fuck life.

Spexxvet 10-26-2012 11:36 AM

At least the extraction won't interfere with my atrial ablation on Nov.9.

limey 10-26-2012 11:37 AM

Ouch!

Clodfobble 10-26-2012 11:40 AM

Wow, that's heavy, Spexx. Does the 21-year-old live with you too, or just the 18-year-old? Nobody actually got hurt, right?

infinite monkey 10-26-2012 11:48 AM

:comfort:

Eye luvz ya, Spexx. :eyeball:

Big Sarge 10-26-2012 11:55 AM

Man, Spexx that is rough
