{Dear Diary} This is so sad.

thebadkidblog:

So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.

I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”.  So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.

I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.

{Dear Diary} Pants Pricing Pickle

Yesterday I enjoyed myself at the Fabulous in Pink Fashion Affair. Several people approached me about making clothes for them however one in particular… let’s just say rubbed me the wrong way.

She asked how much I charge for a pair of pants and I told her that I would have to get somethings together to be able to give her an estimate. I tried to explain some of the factors that go into the pricing of a garment that I would eventually create just for her. She wasn’t hearing it. She said “so you gotta buy fabric” as if that’s the only thing that goes into making clothes. If that was it she could just go buy herself some fabric and magically have some pants.

Only a few seconds later did I hear her talking about me. I WAS STILL IN THE ROOM! “She crazy. If I could make clothes I’d be making stuff for e’rybody and gettin’ money.”

I’m not a seamstress, I am a fashion designer.

One does not simply maketh the clothes-iths. It takes time to get things right especially when you’re doing pieces for a specific person with extreme physical traits (like super tall or really wide in the hips region).

I don’t expect a client to understand everything that goes into making clothes, that’s what they need me for, but c’mon son! You have to realize that at least my time is obviously another factors that goes into pricing. Most people don’t get paid for the work they do, they get paid for the time they work — in my case it’s both.
