I hit the mean streets of SL shopping, once again clad in designer kindness from the Gacha Garden. How cute is this dress for a free gift? It was perfect for my grid roaming ways today, and this purse that was also free just takes the cake.
There are some people who complain about free gifts. I don’t complain about free gifts. What I complain about is GARBAGE people give out. I don’t expect everyone to give out something this nice, honestly. This is a sort of WOW COLOR ME IMPRESSED AND SURPRISED I WILL REMEMBER YOUR STORE AND SHOP THERE SORT OF GIFT. I also think it’s ok not to give a gift. But, if you give out a gift and it’s some prim crap, I also won’t forget that. If you sell shoes and you give a flower – I’ll say thank you. If you sell lipsticks and you give out some sculpt BIAB crap from 2004….
Those seconds unboxing your crap gift I will not forget my friend, nay I shall not.
All that being said, there’s no call to be ungrateful or act like an asshole regardless – no not even if it’s crap you’re given. I can delete it and go about my day without blowing up the creators who do that kind of thing. Maybe they didn’t think it was crap? Maybe.
Maybe they’re just humans and shit happened and they felt pressured to give a gift and that’s what ended up being given. God knows I’ve done enough stuff at the last minute without a lot of thought – so eh, let’s focus on the positive.
Wonderful gifts given in the spirit of kindness should be celebrated. The same is true OF DISCOUNTS. There is no such thing as too little discounts. I recently heard people we being salty about some creators not giving enough of a Black Friday discount. What the heck? Who owes you a discount? No one.
Go shop somewhere else then, geez.
As we go into this holiday season with love and kindness all around – let’s take a moment and remember that the creators who make our worlds beautiful are just humans. They don’t owe us anything. If they give us something we should say thank you – EVEN if we don’t like it – because that’s what polite people do. You have a delete button. Use it.
But you know as mentioned before – better not to give old prim/sculpt gifts because – no one wants garbage. Just saying.
Celebrate what’s good. Shhhh on the rest.
