Wow.. Just Wow.. Sue Happy People out there!

Rate this Entry
Last week we got a ton of new visits and members, which is fabulous, but I got behind in answering my pm's. I don't know if most people realize or not, but I actually do work full time and have 2 teenage kids who are both dual enrolled in college/high school, sports, band, jobs, the whole 9 yards. I really do try to answer everything personally, but sometimes it takes me a few days. But on occasion, I get a whackjob that sends me messages like this,
"Your website is way to busy for me. it makes me dizzy!
All I wanted to know was if your recipe for Hard Water Laundry Detergent will harm my He washer. I guess, if it does I'll sue!"
Seriously folks, this is why we have a disclaimer on the site! You are responsible for your OWN actions, your own choices and if a recipe doesn't work for you, you can't sue the website owner for sharing it with you. For petes sake, this lady needs to get herself a hobby, besides suing people to get ahead in life.

If your ship hasn't come in, SWIM OUT TO IT!

    People never cease to amaze me. She came to the site, copied one of your recipes and then threatens to sue you over it? If she's that worried about it, maybe she should just keep buying commercial detergent for her overpriced machine. The nerve of some people!

    Do you get many pms/posts like this? I guess It never occurred to me to Blame a site for something I decided to try at home.

    Well, let me just say, that I am REALLY glad that you are testing these recipes out! I have found a few on pinterest and have tried them. Some do not work, some do. Ok, now if I have to "tweak" it, then it cost me money. I don't want to have to "tweak" it.
    I am super excited about the dishwasher soap and cannot wait to try it. I went to the store to purchase the items for the recipe, and half of the items were out of stock. Soooo I wait. I am forever running out of dishwasher soap, so I love this recipe.
    Speaking of that, I have a wand mixer, I wonder if that will work with some of these soaps. What do you think? Too strong? You know the one I mean, the hand held stand up thingy, can't remember the official name. Whatever, old age I guess.....LOL
    Anyway, maybe her "hardwater" has caused her own pipes to rust. Ignore her, I know we will, or try...

    hehe, join the crowd, check out my latest "test" here. The thing is, just because one person loves a recipe doesn't mean that someone else will. If that were the case, than they wouldn't have 30 different kinds of detergent on the market, everyone would buy the same one. It's kind of irrelevant whether just 1 person likes it or what they think of it. I'm picky about my recipes- I don't share something unless I would use it, but that doesn't mean if you try it that you'll love it as much as I do, that's just life.

    I don't have one of those and haven't used one, but I see in the reviews and comments that lots of members are using those successfully. It doesn't have any "chunky" ingredients, so I would think that it would whip up fine with the wand mixer.

    LOL, maybe, or maybe she's just the kind of person that feels entitled to whatever she wants, whenever she wants it.

    It always floors me when people want someone else to do everything for them, like that lady, who was instantly sue happy because she want to take responsibility for her own choices. That's like saying, I'm going to go to a restaurant and order a meal I've never tried before and if I don't like it, I'll SUE the restaurant for serving it. The gall of some people just amazes me. Thank goodness for all of the truly WONDERFUL people that I have met through the site and chat with daily on here, if it weren't for them, I'd have shut down this site 10 years ago, lol.

    Hugs! I hope you like the Supreme Dishwasher sauce, I LOVE it.

    Just keep going. I love that you are doing this. I would love to start a blog one day, but I think that I would bore my audience so much that I would be talking to myself. I do that anyway (talk to myself). So now I can talk to you and about you to my friends. LOL
    I am still learning my way around your site, so bare with me. I read this earlier, but I couldn't find it when I came back to respond. hmm. Speaking of this site, I noticed you don't have a lot of crafts on here. Am I missing them or is it true that you only have a few things posted? I put a recipe for cloud dough on a post a while back. Hope that was ok...

    we do have a crafts section here : Budget101.com - - Crafts ~Scrapbooking but what ends up happening is that the crafty items end up posted in the forums and also in the tips-n-tricks under kids too. They're really spread out. The current system doesn't really let us tag the items so people can see them all in one spot without reposting them over and over. Wish we we had more coding experience so we didn't have that issue!
