This week I have discovered the selfish side of human nature when a delivery driver tampered with a parcel, stole numerous items inside and resealed the box leaving a customer disappointed and myself out of pocket. I will leave no stone unturned in finding the culprit and claiming for my losses but it still makes me very sad.
A lot of my customers are self employed in small businesses and they will all know how hard it is, working all year round without any holidays, working whilst ill, taking work home and trying desperately to make ends meet. All this whilst trying to compete with ruthless supermarkets and big business who jump on any trend and use their enormous buying power to undercut those of us who really don't want to be rich. We just want to get by.
Brexit has also adversly affected my business enormously and I am sure others must be feeling the effects! Having people stealing from us just makes it even harder. I will have to sell 100's of pounds worth of items just to recoup enough profit to pay for the loss.
I would never wish harm on anyone but I do hope that karma pays a call and makes the person who stole my items re-think how they are living their lives and make a change for the better.
However onwards and upwards (hopefully)
