If you've ever sold commissioned pieces or are a freelancer you know that there is a whole host of people who are just jerks. These people think they should be able to ask you to make something custom, just for them, but then also give them a crazy cheap price and basically be unpaid for your actual time/labor.
Unfortunately, Krafty Katt had a run in recently when a potential client messaged her on Instagram to ask about creating a custom piece for his girlfriend. He gave her very specific instructions on how he wanted his blanket to be done but was outrageously rude when told the price.
Read below for the transcript of how this conversation went down. Warning: It will make you angry.
Keep in mind that Katt said this in an interview recently: “I’m not a business, so I really don’t consider anyone a potential customer, and if they’re rude I have no problem dishing it back,” Katt remarked. “I don’t need to worry about negative reviews or anything like that, the repercussions for me are virtually zero.”
“I’m just a hobby crocheter and trying to keep it that way,” Katt explained. “I rarely do commissions, usually just done to reinvest money in my hobbies. Most people are extremely polite when inquiring about prices; I’ve been told one other time that I overcharge and that was as rude as it got before this.”
