that WAHMs are people, too! REAL people with REAL families and REAL problems other than YOU. Their lives do not revolve around YOU. I, too, have been burnt in the past by bad WAHMs, but people, get your priorities straight! I am sickened and appalled to hear that a certain WAHM has gotten DEATH THREATS for her and her children from some lousy customer over an ORDER! For goodness' sake people, this is STUFF! Diapers, covers, soap, WHATEVER... This is nothing compared to the life of a person! Again I say, get your priorities straight! And what's this about customers blackmailing WAHMs to get freebies? That's just sick and wrong!

Yes, customer service is important. However, we need to be patient sometimes and understand that life happens! Sometimes we get screwed (pardon my language -- I'm a bit upset at the moment ) and that really stinks, but live and learn... That's just part of life -- a lot of people are dishonest. Sad, but true. MOST of the time, however, the WAHM is just dealing with other issues... MOST of the time, the issues will be resolved and they will get to you when they get to you. Let's all just try to have a little bit of patience and compassion -- no hateful emails and CERTAINLY no death threats necessary!

OK, off my soapbox now... Back to your regularly scheduled diaper threads...

She has. The police have to patrol past her house every hour. Her poor child is terrified. Nobody should have to live like that.

I totally agree. I am a sahm and dance academy owner/ dance instructor. I am a small bus that puts families first. I do alot of work from my home and I bring my children to the academy with me.

One of the advantages of a small bus and wahm is the personalized care and love that they have for their work. One of the disadvantages is that on occation.........their is a delay or problem with an order. That happens sometimes when their is only one employee. Personally.................I have no problem with these problems as long as the wahm is doing the best they can to fix the problem. It is a price I am willing to pay for the fabulous service that I regularly receive from wahm and small bus.

We all need to treat others as we would like to be treated. Put yourself in their shoes.........everyone has their problems. We should assist eachother through them, not make it worse.

And to those who want free stuff.........................make it yourself!

this makes me feel icky

i feel for the WAHM but i hope she understands that isn't the norm. well, i sure hope not anyway. i'm surprised to hear that blackmailing for freebies is common too, so maybe i'm naive. not that i'd blame her if she did, but i hope she doesn't quit on some wacko's account!


her poor kids! isn't this like the cheerleader mom - who "loved" her kid so much she hired someone to kill the competitions mother? i'm sure this mama thinks, "i love my baby so much NO ONE will mess with us!!!" yeah, say that to your cellmate, big bertha!

That just boggle's my mind... I'm just my head over this! What in the world is that person thinking...for pete's sake, it's a DIAPER?!!! This diaper that gets pooped in for heavens sake...how could people possibly get that upset?! It's beyond me. How could they not think of how they would feel if it were their child and their family being treated that way. And blackmail for freebies...I thought Cd'ing is not only a way for diapering, but also a way to gently parent, how is this person rationalizing her behavior?! I'm just apalled!

I'm sure this thread will get pulled, but this is appalling and ridiculous. Whoever it is needs to get back to HER life and quit terrorizing this poor WAHM. I hope it's not an MDC mama. I'd hate to think any of us would act like that. :

That is disgusting and sick. I can't believe people sometimes. Too bad they can't force the person the pay for the costs of having the police patrol the wahms house, etc.
Needless to say, whoever this person is needs some serious psychological help and I really hope that they are not part of this community.

And I to the wahm. I feel terrible that they and their family have to go through this.

I can't imagine she could threaten a woman and her children, her being a mother herself and knowing how awful it would be to be fearful of your family's safety....

Wow, I am flabbergasted. I can't believe someone would threaten a life over something materialistic, like a diaper. for the poor mama dealiing with this and her family. Shame on whoever is doing this to her. That's just ridiculous and insane. How sad they have nothing more to do with their life than to threaten someone.

She must have friends in very high places to warrant this kind of police protection. Stalking and/or death threats occur at a fairly substantial rate in all communities, much of it domestic violence related, some of it celebrity or fantasy related, and some of it just random people in random relationships.

If the police gave everybody who'd been threatened and/or stalked this kind of treatment, they'd do nothing but protective drive bys. I've never heard of anyone who's received a death threat or been stalked getting this kind of police protection. Usually the police tell people to lock their doors, get dogs and alarm systems, and hire private security.
