I am so frustrated right now...
As you all know, Mum, I and Kerstin BURNED-PHOENIX were doing “Pink Saturday” in “Euro Spar” on October 4th...
We did so well last year and were promised by word that we could come back this year.

I’d talked to some of the workers there and they remembered last year and told us everything was fine for this year and every thing would be fine…
So for all the places on the cancer pages where I had to put up our activities I put “Pink Saturday in Euro Spar” as last year.

Then yesterday I talked with Mum and she was really down.

She had talked to the manager at “Euro Spar”.
And he told her that due to them turning “Euro Spar” into some other kind of “Chain” we might not be able to get the spot this year... He was really not nice about it, but told Mum that he could get her a final answer on Friday.
Mum was ready to call all of it off, she was really down….
I told her, that we would approach him Friday and do whatever we could to get our spot.

Then most of the night I was awake – I can´t really sleep around the full moon anyway, so I have had some sleepless nights here – and was thinking about other places we could put up our booth.
I have a few places we can ask, but they are not ideal...

Another thing is all the emailing I have to do if he turns us down, our event is all over the cancer foundations homepages, Facebook and other media.
It will take so many hours and emails to change everything… AAAggghhhhhhhhhh

But keep you fingers crossed that the manager has come to his senses, and will let us use “Euro Spar”…
Otherwise all of you will get pink presents for Christmas!!!!

I keep my fingers crossed. Maybe it's even for the better because a new chain usually attracts more customers. That would be nice, right?

I told her, that we would attack him Friday and do whatever we could to get our spot.

Why would you "attack" this man??? What purpose would that serve? You say that "he was not really nice about it" to your mom. I don't know what was said (no details given) but attacking him will not improve things.

If Euro Spar is now some other kind of "Charin", then the manager may not be able to do what was done last year. He may be under constraints and have to follow new regulations over which he has no control.

Wait until you receive his answer and then you'll know what the situation is. I know you, you mum and the other person have put a lot into this and want the same place as last year and things may turn out well after all. I hope so.

Good luck,

Hi buzzie,
Sorry I didn´t mean attack him like jump him or anything like that. I just meant that we would both go and talk to him Friday....So sorry, I am not a violent person at all ;)

I don't think you are a violent person, pippi. I understand that you were disappointed. Still, words can be potent, even more so in print and on the internet where nothing is truly confidential. Take care as "attack" could be seen as a threat, especially followed by and do whatever we have to do.. You can edit your post, btw, to say what you meant.

Thanks Buzzie,
I´ve changed it to approach instead.

Just got back, and we have our spot in October ;)

Thank you for all your support all the time♥

Yea!!! I'm so happy you all got the spot you wanted and I hope that being part of a chain will make Euro Spar even bigger and better for you than last year.

Fireworks (userpic) to celebrate :))

The manager didn't have to be an asshat about it, if he's gotten new directives- say so without being rude. Go talk to him and see what happens.
I hope you can get it sorted, if not-let me know and I'll help out with mailing and whatnots and whatever I can.

Oh no! Crossing everything crossable for you! *big hugs and good thoughts*

Take a deep breath. It wasn't nice of him to yell at your mom, but he might not have any control over who has a booth. Just wait and calmly talk to him. If not, then you've got other options and friends who will help with the emailing.
