    She is being awfully choosy for a beggar.

    She sounds like the sort who would go in to a printing place and then throw a fit when they can't print a 30x40 canvas from her shitty phone picture.

    "What do you mean it's not high enough quality? It looked fine on Facebook!"

    That makes me cringe because I feel like my pictures look worse on Facebook than in print. Even when they’re sized ideally for social media, there’s still compression.

    My mom was at a conference last spring and they had some new fancy printer, and asked the conference attendees to send phone pics to be printed. So now I have an adorable although slightly grainy framed large photo of B and C after a blizzard hanging in my office.

    They totally do. But people don't consider they're often looking at these pictures on tiny phone screens, so of course they look great! They're like 4" wide.

    “Exposure” clients are always the biggest pain in the asses anyways, lack of payment aside.

    A lady DM'd me on Instagram asking if I'd send her a free, unscented, shampoo bar that she could review for her followers. She wanted to put her own essential oils on it. Um no, if you're going to burn up your scalp go ahead but I don't want to join your shenanigans Carol. My insurance probably covers that but we're not going to test that theory.

    @Tumnus This sounds like a wannabe Instagram Influencer’s first day on the job.

    I've recommended your shampoo and used my own money to purchase it too, @Tumnus.

    Literally started absentmindedly stroking my soft, soft shampoo bar’ed hair while reading this post. :lol:

    I'd put some Repel bug spray on J before he went to a horseback riding birthday party. It was lemon and eucalyptus. When I was dropping him off, I saw that they were eating first . . . so I said to the mom, who is an MD (so I assume not a crazy EO kook) but whom I do not know very well, "I sprayed him down with a natural bug spray, so if you smell oils, that's what it is. I'm not a crazy oil person."

    And she kind of laughed, and I was like, "No offense at all if you're a crazy oil person. I mean, an oil person."

    SMH. Tater, come on.

    It's disappointing how many medical industry people are so into EOs.
