Jeans, Buckles and Idiots....

So here goes on my first venture to tell you about the mundane happenings in my life. I have been working with a man named Kevin who has a patent on a V-shaped belt-buckle (of sorts), and have been helping him design the piece and figure out the logistics to alter the jeans.

I will cut to the chase of my frustration today. The company who has been entrusted with altering the jeans prides themselves on being the only specialty denim alteration company in LA. The guy who is the head of the operation has been in the denim industry for over 30 years apparently. Well I dropped the jeans off on Friday and CLEARLY communicated to the guy that I needed the jeans to be finished by Tuesday for a photo shoot that we have scheduled on Thursday morning.

The man I'm working with (Kevin) bought a flight out here specifically for this photo shoot so the jeans HAD to be ready. I find out today, after hearing a bunch of lies, giving me the run around and dealing with irresponsible behavior, that the jeans have not even BEEN SENT OUT TO THE MAIN TAILOR!!!!

I have no problem with hang-ups in a process. If you can't follow through with a commitment, at LEAST have the decency to tell the person so that they have time to re-evaluate right?! Now I don't have any other option as I need the jeans done by TOMORROW!

So frustrating.....just be upfront and honest people, when you lie to me to try to cover your butt it just pisses me off more.

What do you guys think?
