|It's just sad what some people will do & allow|
I'm going to take a moment to rant and you are more than welcome to skip this post and come visit me again tomorrow but I really wanted to get this off my chest. I'll wait...
Y'all know that I entered a fun little creative contest and the winner was announced today. The company hosting it, one that I used to have a ton of respect for but has since obviously lost all of it, gave the award to the person who cheated. Blatantly cheated and even though it was documented and brought to the company's attention, they did nothing about it - simply stating that the person still managed to have the most "unique" pins.
Excuse me? You acknowledge that they cheated and yet you reward them for it? It doesn't matter how you package it or spin it, you allowed someone with an unethical position and practice be rewarded. What does that say about you, your image and your company? If you will turn a blind eye to a silly little contest what will you do when it matters - in life and in business?
The loss is greater than the silly contest, I lost respect for a woman and an organization that I used to think so highly of in the knitting world... and that is the greatest loss of all.
