In reply to: What to do about "friends" expecting free henna all the time...Sorry, vent... posted by Erika on June 2, 2002 at 18:29:31:

: Boy, I'm on a posting frenzy today, I guess I had a heck of a
henna-
: filled weekend. I feel kind of whiny by venting so early in the
: biz, but I think I need to nip these misunderstandings in the bud
: before they become a habit and cause resentment.
: Hopefully somebody more tactful than I will have some
suggestions.
:
: The problem is my neighbor. She asks me if I'll do some henna for
: her. I know already that she has no intention of paying me. No
: biggee, since I could always use a little practice. So I make up
a
: batch a couple of days in advance, so it will be ready for use
when
: she says she ahs a night off work. That night, she says she'll
come
: over after her shower, but instead calls me at 10:30 to say she's
: beat and maybe we can "play" some other night next week. What the
: heck does she think I am, some kid who likes playing make-up with
: Barbie Dolls? I have 3 kids that I homeschool, a house and
husband
: to take care of, I go to college at night and I have a budding
henna
: business. I don't have time to accomodate someone who acts like
: she's doing me a favor. Whew! That felt good...
