Still waiting for a badge

I commisioned FA's Surrenderyerswag/captain-squeak/clowncaronfire Back in July of 2010. I had originaly contacted them via there FA Clowncaronfire. They asked me to PM there commision account Surrenderyerswag so I did.
I commisioned a Derp badge for $15 which can be seen completed here.

On August 30th I made contact asking if my badge had been mailed out. I got this reply.

I said okay I'm sure it'll be mailed out soon then.

I waited and made contact again on October 14th. I got this reply. (my stuff is highlighted by red)

I had replyed back in a nasty manor because I was upset knowing my badge was done and wasn't being sent out. This is the 3rd person i've commisioned and haven't recieved my art from so I was upset.(one ended up being resolved) Family (or ferret) problems hasn't stopped this person from takeing on more commisions so why has it stopped them from sticking a stamp on an envelop and dropping it in the mailbox?

I have not made contact with this person again because I don't want fed more excusses. I just want my art. I paid for a product and I expect to get it. Several other people bought these at the same time I did and i'm curious to know if they got theres or not.

**EDIT**
I recieved my badge yesterday in the mail along with a little extra drawing. Looks like the situation has been resolved and then some. Thanks for getting that out so fast.

Damn, that sort of sucks. What kind of artist can't take 2 minutes to put a stamp on an envelope and mail it off?

Hm, pretty funny that you don't mention the fact that I offered refunds like a week ago though, huh?
You'll get your badge. Just please have a little decency to post the full story. Including the fact that I offered refunds on shipping next time.
I'm not a scam artist.

It has been an extortionate length of time. Sometimes it takes me a week to send stuff out, because it can just be an arse to get to the post office, but still, 6 months of family issues that prevent you from going to the post office?

Not that I'm not sympathetic, there can be issues at home that can be so detrimental that you can't leave the house from depression, but 6 months is a little extreme.

I like the artist's work, and they seem lovely, so I'm a little surprised. I don't think they're a scam artist, I just think a little... I don't know, maybe careless or apathetic

Let me set some things straight.

1. Yes. The length of time it has taken me to ship things out is not only wrong and embarassing, but it's disgusting and haunts me constantly. I have mentioned this tme, and time again.
I never wanted it to take this long.
2. I live in an area where quite frankly, I don't trust those around me, so yes I could get to the post office on my own, but carrying a big bag full of art bothers me cus people here are desperate and thieves like you can't imagine. Basically? It's because of that I rely on my father.
3. I will try my hardest to get that, and a few of the others I owe out before the week is finished. If I can't, I will personally note you.

Speaking as a friend of CCoF/Squeak/Swag, I'll be frank

Both of y'alls were in the wrong.

Squeak-- I know the journals are a good way to get in mass contact with your commissioners, but instead of saying "I posted a journal about it" maybe say "Yeah, I made a journal explaining about my situation, here it is in case you missed it" going the extra inch, foot or mile does a lot.

And never, ever drop to someone's level when they're angry at you. It just makes things worse. "Not everyone's life is the Brady Bunch" was completely uncalled for.

Kandifurgurl- You shouldn't take out all your frustrations on Squeak either. I think a lot of us have waited a long time, so there's no need to state the obvious. You could have remained polite, even if the wait was unreasonable, staying prompt and polite is always your best option when speaking to anyone. I'm pretty sure you don't lik being yelled at, so you wouldn't do the same now would you?

I don't see where your reading that i'm being rude (other than my PM) I'm calm because i'm to the point where I gave up. The only reason this post was written is because my boyfriend is mad that his money has been tied up for so long.

This is one of the major things I hate about typeing is that people are under teh wrong impression because they can't hear what you type.

Ok, well. Just to give you a head's up. Currently I am not home (where the badges are), I am at a family member's house until possibly tonight, but more realistically tomorrow morning/afternoon sometime.
I will try to get what I can shipped either tomorrow or Saturday before work, and try shipping out a batch or two a week until everything is to the clients involved.
I'll note you when I have shipped it out.
Sound good?

This is a perfect example of: don't be rude, kids.

From both parties.

Treat others as you would like to be treated, and all that jazz. When someone's being a jerk to you, you're gonna feel like being a jerk back. And when someone remains nice and polite? Well, it's a lot easier to have a civil conversation and avoid things like this altogether.

Then you can all be like the Brady Bunch ;D
