It's different for everyone, of course, the line.
I'll give you an example. One of the grocery stores I shop at is maddening. They refuse to stock overnight, even though they are open 24 hours. So that means when you are shopping, there are huge pallets blocking the aisles, with surly stockers preventing you from getting anything you want. If I ever actually see the yogurt stocker outside of the door of that store I'm tackling him and teaching him a lesson. That's right yogurt guy - watch your back. If I don't finish you off, Kim will.
And yet I go back. I'm annoyed every time I do, but I go because it's close, and there are things that outweigh the pain of the stockers.
And then there are the line crossers.
There are the companies that rub up against your philosophies in an unpleasant way. The way this happens is nearly always with a sneak attack. People tend to do business with companies they believe in for one reason or another. A sudden realization that a company will not manifest its stated philosophy when things get a little uncomfortable is usually a deal breaker.
At least for the line drawers such as myself.
So, today, I draw a line.
And, oddly enough - I got this quote tonight on Twitter, via @SurrendrDorothy:
The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.
Well said, William Blake. Time for a little tiger. :)
Since I was drawing lines, I thought I'd draw some lines. with a white gel pen. Beneath the Circle Circus balloons in Chocolate Chip and Melon Mambo, on the K & Co paper, on the Melon Mambo card base.
Hope you have a great day.
RAWR. You know who you are.
