Chutzpah: Burden of Proof


ChutzpaChutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.

chutzpah Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment.

Wow! If you have a theory that is wonderful. The point of a theory is you do not share it unless you have proof. I have to say I never really networked until this year. I was frankly too busy raising and having my family and working at  my other job and blogging was for fun. I decided to start to network because blogging is lonely and I have a lot to learn. I have met several awesome bloggers and I have run into several bloggers that honestly make me ill.

The problem is certain people make up stories. Then they spread them. It is kind of like online high school. If you knew me in high school I didn’t put up with bullying then either. I was friends with everyone. I mean why not?  Last night one of my blogging buddies received a nasty note from another blogger accusing her of taking match-ups. She wrote her a really nasty note. I guess I hit my limit with bloggers behaving badly and I wrote her a note demanding she apologize. She does NOT have proof and honestly matching up coupons with the sales ad isn’t hard. We all have coupon databases that match the coupons to the products.  It takes time but it is not brain surgery. I hope this blogger does what she should and sends my friend an apology because without proof it is called harassment.

I decided I was going to have some Chutzpah and stand up for my friend. She is too nice. She was just going to ignore this person. I think if we ignore bullies they just get more powerful and that is not okay! I hope you take the route of right no matter how difficult it is.

  1. It would only be harassment if it continued. A single rude note is not harassment. Still, mean people suck. And the best way to deal with them is to not show hat they bothered you. I had a customer recently that placed a large order with me. She’s a reseller, so she bought a large quantity of stuff to resell. She hemmed and hawed over the price a bit, wanting it cheaper. In the end she made her purchase anyway. Then the night after she picked it up, she sent me a horrible email criticizing my things. I was up until 3am that night testing the batches to see if something had turned out wrong. No. Everything was perfect. And these were some of my best selling products too. She never intended to pay my price. She thought she was going to get her discount on the back end by accusing me of skimping on the product. No way. She was not happy that I wouldnt budge. And I spent two weeks sick to my stomach over the whole incident too. But even if she does decide to place another order, I wont accept it. I only care to work with people who think my stuff is wonderful. If you don’t think it’s wonderful, don’t buy it. I can work any old job and be treated like crap.
