Today was a first in 24 years of doing fish taxidermy. Had a customer actually bring his bass in and tell me he was going to "look around some more" after looking at the 10 lb. bass I had on display. I know I'm not God's gift to taxidermy but this is a first. And I know it shouldn't bother me but after years of people ranting and raving about my work, and easily winning blue ribbons at the state level -- this is an ego buster. Oh well I guess I just have to chalk it up as you can't please everybody, and I've got plenty of customers that keep coming back. I told him no problem that was his prerogative, I had plenty of work, and made no fuss about it. I should have asked him what he didn't like about it, but I didn't really want to push it. Maybe the big sign over the doorway that says 50 percent deposit required on all work had something to do with it. ;D Sorry just had to vent. And please if you choose this opportunity to attack me just for the sake of attacking me I'd prefer you didn't. Just some honest replies.
