I don't even know anything about Pokeman, but they are all beautiful!
Is it really SO hard to listen to the prompts?

Your Pokemans, show me them.

Oh, you did.

Well...they're nothing short of awesome. Tell him to shut his Meowth.

Those are gorgeous! Your work is really lovely. The customer is an idiot.

And Kitty looks a bit....perturbed...

I gotta agree. I'm no expert nor do I have an eye for stuffed plushes, factory- or hand-made. But that's pretty impressive work you have there! I'm used to seeing huge stuffed animals and plushes from our local park, and something like what you displayed looks way too good to fit in with what they have.

Screw him --- and no refund, either. You've put in plenty of time and effort (and material)...A lack of comprehension on his part that it would essentially be a recolor of all of the OTHERS he's seen before does not constitute a failure of ANY kind on your part.

Oh don't worry, refund will NOT be happening. For one thing his down payment juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust barely covered the fabric I had to buy to make this, so he's not getting it back, it's spent and gone!

Ordinarily I do offer to make them some small item worth somewhat less than their down payment, in cases where a customer has paid but isn't going to get their item. A mini plush. A tail. Some ears on a headband. Something easy and simple like that. After all, sometimes a customer has good reason to cancel a commission, and it's hardly fair to have taken their money and given them nothing at all. Even when it's a case of the customer not liking the finished product, sometimes that really is as much my fault as theirs.

But this guy? No, I think not. He can pony up and pay the remaining price for the plush exactly as it is, or he can get nothing, not even a refund. Those are the options he's getting. I offer the above deal as a courtesy, and I only give courtesy to people who treat me with matching courtesy.

You have too much talent to cater to people like him.

Yeah, just heard back from this guy, and he's demanding that I change it or he won't pay for it. given that I already told him that I won't change it, and that he can take it as is or leave it, I don't know what he thinks that'll accomplish.

He also is acting as though he had no idea I was going to use the same pattern as the other plushes, despite my SPECIFICALLY telling him it would be made with the same pattern.

And bonus insanity! He told me he's very disappointed at how this is obviously inferior to the Flareon. And linked me. To a photo. Of my Flareon. As though I might have forgotten how it looked in the last few months.

Edit: Even more bonus crazy! Now he's telling me that on the one hand he had "just expected" that I would pay more careful attention to details while making this, but on the other hand he doesn't like the eye shine I put on. Even though it's on the official art, and is one of those details I should be paying attention to. I just blocked him. We're quite done here, I feel.

So. Uh. Anybody want to buy a Leafeon?

Edit the second: Holy frick! He apparently didn't like being blocked, I just got a massively passive-aggressive rant sent to me via a different means of communication. Did you know that "What the fuck happened to it?" and accusing somebody of failing to give proper attention to detail are not insults? Apparently not. What they are instead I have no idea, but he tells me they're not insults, so obviously he's right. Also mentioning that a "picky" customer has backed out of a deal, and now it's for sale is causing drama? So he tells me.

Sheesh. I've found a real prize here. What a nut.
