**Thread of massive RANT**
As a lot of you know I am making and posting fabric masks (at my own expense) for as many people as I can who need them. I have reached out to #FrontLineHeroes , People in DP and the sick and elderly in my community and beyond. People's generosity 1/
has been astounding with parcels and bags of elastic, cotton and thread arriving to help me. Last week I was in a queue and a 'Lady' (60's), overheard a mate asking me how it was going, turned to me and asked if she could get one. I said of course and we exchanged numbers. 2/
I then mentioned I only lived 5 mins away if she wanted to collect it. So she did. I went outside with the mask. She asked how much? I said No Charge. She was looking in the window where I have set up my work table as she spotted the Huskies. Also spotted all the masks. . 3/
She then asked me for another 2. I reluctantly said ok, gave her them and then proceeded to show her how to put it on when she condescendingly turned to me and said "You don't have to show me, I WAS a nurse you know". How the fcuk would I?? Then said she knew loads of people 4/
who would like masks too. I told her I was inundated and to ring me next week (which was last week). She rang on Tues (at that stage one of my huskies was seriously unwell which took priority) and said 14 people she knew wanted 2 masks each. When could she collect? 5/
When I had spoken to my son and told him about the original meeting he said "Mam, for people like that you will have to charge, she is taking the piss" so I told her that I would have to charge her a fiver a mask at which she launched into a tirade, practically screaming 6/
at me saying that I said they were free. I was so upset I just hung up. About an hour ago she rang again and offered me 30euro for 30 masks and said "I could take it or leave it" If I didn't take it she would make sure my name was mud as I was pretending to be a good Christian 7/
where in reality all I was doing was making money out of people's misery. I hung up again and blocked her. I am devastated. I am hugely out of pocket doing this and have spent most of my days between my work table, ironing board and sewing machine. I have bad Arthritis in both 8/
my hands, am neglecting my home, my garden etc., in order to get as many masks made as I can. It is like a production line here now. It is fiddley work and not easy. Yet I am writing this now in tears because of some nasty piece who has made me feel like shit when all 9/
I am doing is in some small way, is trying to help. I found out last week that she was a Nurse, her husband is an Accountant yet I am barely keeping the roof over my head. WTAF is wrong with people? #AllInThisTogether my ass. Rant over. #Humanity #StayHome 💔💞💚💚
