  1. Could have used a smaller font so I didn’t have to print off 6 pages.

  2. Brian, you could have copy/pasted the text into a Word document and changed the font size, so you would have had to print so many pages. Or you could have printed both sides of the paper. Or you could have saved the information as a digital file and not printed at all. Many ways you could have avoided your stated problem, but no, just complain…

    Not everyone is as computer savvy as young people.

    I think it is unfair to exclude vendors who could only be available one day during the weekend. What about individuals who can NOT be available both days, do to Spiritual importance and conflict. That would require placing ourselves and our (own desires) above the One who gave me life… What does it TRULY matter, if a vendor is ONLY available Saturday OR Sunday but not both? Think outside the box PLEASE!

    You should seriously consider and “respect” others “limits”…

    Signed your new MI resident who “WAS” looking forward to being a vendor…”until” I read your (uncompromising) “must be available both days on the weekends”, regardless of OUR OWN values, non-sensical “rules”.

    That’s incredibly….”thoughtless”…thanks for inadvertently tying my hands and leaving me “no options” but THiS….what OR WHO should I say….IS more important???

    That’s an EASY answer…and EASY to walk away..bye bye.
