Over the weekend I have harvested honey, extracted and bottled it for sale, and then the cleanup. No need to explain the details because most of us here have done it. Now for my RANT. :-x
All summer long, most of my co-workers have bugged me beyond belief for my honey, now it is here. I set everything up in the lunchroom, sample honey for tasting and an order sheet, simple enough. Please keep in mind, the honey in question is pure and raw, from wildflowers and I am selling at $4.50 per lb.
This one co-worker has been the most vocal of all demanding my honey. He saw the price and demanded a discount and I said no. He begins to lecture me that I stole the honey from the bees and I should give it to him almost for nothing ( he is half right ). Then I explain to him what is involved in getting the honey to the very lunch table in front of us. He still wants the honey for a discount, again I held my ground. The co-worker is still fuming 5 hours later. The difference between what I am asking and what he was willing to pay was 50 cents. That's it. Knowing how big his mouth is, I would have to give a discount to everyone.
BTW, sales are good today. The Price: $4.50 :-D
UPDATE: You'll love this.
Just as I was leaving for the day at 5:00, Mr. Ignorant decided to pay the $4.50. I told him the price went up to $5.50 and immediately he went ballistic. Dude, you should have bought it when it was a dollar cheaper this morning. :evil: :evil: :evil:
I can't wait till tomorrow :-D
