Negative Ratings & the Current Trucking strike...

Recommended Posts

Cali Craft and Gems

Hi Cuan

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I have deliberately replied via the online message system so that you can review the contents of the messages sent. I have not replied directly to his emails so there is nothing "hidden" from the situation - except of course for his emails to me.

 

He is very sarcastic and nasty, and is a buyer whom I would love to block based purely on the content of his messages, but the system does not allow it.

 

I understand fully how all of us are frustrated by the strikes and issues, but it does not give him the right to carry on like he has. I have been calm, polite and direct about the situation at hand, yet he still continues hacking at me.

 

I have come to the point now that I am not going to even bother replying to his correspondence - this is one buyer I am actually going to ignore as each time I give him a decent reply, it gets' thrown back at me ten-fold.

 

Regards,

Janet - CCG

[TD]Goeie middag Johan,

 

Was jy bewus daarvan dat die poskantoor vir 3 weke gestaak het. As jy was sou jy dit sekerlik ook

 

aanvaar het as iets buite ons as verkopers se beheer.

 

Ek voel eerlik dat die 2 negatiewe ratings wat jy my gegee het beslis onregverdig was.

 

Ongelukkig moes ek myself as verkoper verdedig.

 

Gaan kla gerus by die Bidorbuy forum daaroor! ASSEBLIEF doen my die een guns.

 

Neem sommer die tracking results saam as bewys HOE onredelik jy is.

It's absolutely UNFAIR that this friggin bloke gave me 2 NEGATIVE ratings because of the post office! What the heck! I AM NOT the post office, so WHY must I put up with 2 unfair ratings. His e-mail to me: He will change the rating as soon as he received his parcel

For heaven's sake...............

 

I presume if his wife gets pregnant, he will blame it on me too.!

Yes Miems, VERY unfair, especially if your client was aware of the strikes., and if not, he can just verify it at his nearest post office.

 

As for blaming the other matter on you as well, lets just say hopefully he will have ALL the facts at his fingertips with THAT one ..lol

 

Hopefully, those negative ratings will be changed to positives by the client or removed by BoB.

For all buyers and seller alike....an update on the postage issue.

I was at Cape Mail yesterday and had the priviledge of visiting their postal holding and safe hands division. The system was fully explained to me and questions were asked and answered.

I wish I could have taken a photogragh to show you what is happening there. The backlog of parcels is unbelievable. Boxes are stacked so high I was afraid they will fall.

Due to the truck strike, no mail was going out, so what was happening is parcels were coming in and being put behind parcels already there. Now that things are back to "normal", parcels are going out on a first in first out basis.

No priority is given to anyone! According to the officials, it could take up to 3 weeks to be cleared and parcels are coming in daily and they only have so many hands to do the work. Obviously, due to the huge quantities, no extra hands are taken in because the chances of theft would increase, so they are making do with their normal workers.

I hope that buyers too will read this post so they can be made aware that the postage situation is totally out of our (sellers) hands.

The postal staff is under just as much stress and I experienced this first hand. Let's take this situation, as a whole, into consideration when rating sellers. We as sellers cannot be held responsible for the economic situation in our country, nor can we be held responsible for the ridiculous actions of our fellow South Africans who think that by striking and setting vehicles alight, they are going to succeed in their demands for own gain.

Trusting we can all settle down and accept a situation that is beyond our control.

Let the following verse be something we can live by:

 

The Serenity Prayer

 

G O D, grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Taking, as He did, this sinful world

as it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that He will make all things right

if I surrender to His Will;

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with Him

Forever in the next.

Amen. --Reinhold Niebuhr
