Welcome to another edition of: Don't Do This™

So, I took this week off of working on BT so I'd have extra free time to work on SL Avatars. Specifically the dog critters really really need their updates. Between little free time, my comp crashing constantly and SL's own issues and bugs, I haven't been able to work on them much in the past few weeks (I'd hoped to have them done by the BEGINNING of August, not the end).

In any case, I'm working on these avs. That means I'm doing quite a bit of flipping between SL and Photoshop (For the texture work). I also have Pinkeye. Did I mention this? So I'm spending a lot of time getting up and worshipping all that is Visine.

So I come back from the bathroom and get this PM:

[19:02] CapsLock Lover: mY BAD....i AM TERRIBLY SORRY ABOT THE im'S....THE PACKAGE WAS NO-MOD

I have my busy mode on right now. That means that when someone PMs me, they get a notice that, gasp, I'm busy, and that I'm probably not going to be answering PMs. I really really should have known better, but I thought "okay, I'll just answer this one real quick, nbd".

[19:05] Jakkal Dingo: The box is no-mod but the stuff in it is

I really didn't have any idea what she was talking about, but I assumed that she was a newbie (a few months old) and didn't understand that the stuff in the box does not have the same permissions as the box itself. I should have said nothing, because I know it never ends /just there/.

[19:06] CapsLock Lover: YES....
[19:06] CapsLock Lover: MY MISTAKE

Okay? Wtf?

[19:07] CapsLock Lover: IS THERE ANYWAY i CAN GET A COPY OF THE TEXTURES USED SO i CAN MAKE MY FOOTPAWS LOOK LIKE THE REST OF ME?
[19:08] CapsLock Lover: AND MY FACE.....i MOST BOUGHT IT FUR THE SKIN AND TAIL

At this point, I've switched back out to Photoshop to continue working on Textures. I also had to get up, once again, and put the visine in, cuz my eye is driving me nuts with the itchy-burny.

[19:12] CapsLock Lover: 'ELLO?.....

And so it begins... Remember the busy notice? Obviously not.

[19:13] CapsLock Lover: iS THERE ANYWAY i CAN GET A COPY OF THE TEXTURES USED?
[19:14] CapsLock Lover: NOT VERY CUSTOMER ORIENTED ARE YOU?

The world is crashing because I didn't respond to her immediately. Hey, remember the BUSY MODE? Or do I need to type in all caps for you to understand?

[19:15] CapsLock Lover: AND YOU MUST BE RICH TO PASS UP TOP DOLLAR FUR A FEW TEXTURES

Okay, this is the shit that really pisses me off about people and SL. I must be rich to "pass up top dollar". First, she didn't even offer to pay. Secondly, we don't sell our textures anyway. Third, it's FOR, as in EFF OH ARE, not FUR!!! And lastly, 'must be rich' for what? She's going to offer me a whopping, what, $1000L for the textures? That's $3.50 on a good day. When will people realize that I'm not in this for the money? I don't want their money. And I don't want them paying me to put up with them either.

Does she really think I'm sitting there and ignoring her? Well I am right now to make this post. I'll probably wait til my store staff comes on and let them deal with her. Between working, and my eye, I really don't have the tolerance for this behavior.
