Please don’t use my name but I wanted to tell you about something that recently happened to me! I have a sales rep that carries about 30 lines of clothing. Since the Fall 07 season is right around the corner, she had asked me to supply her with a list/pictures of the fall fabric choices I would be using so there would not be a conflict between my line and another “similar” line she is also carrying. I thought when I had sent her my fabric choices it was “confidential”…not so! Apparently she had sent my email of MY FABRIC SWATCHES to the other designer! As innocent as she may have “thought” she was being, I feel this was MAJORLY wrong of her to do.
What do you think?
I am stunned, without words so other than to sit here and stammer stupidities such as “I can’t believe she did that” or “how unprofessional”; I can only think this rep knew exactly what she was doing and you should -minimally- drop her! And, were it possible, I’d encourage you to tell people (in the forum) her name so that nobody else gets stuck with this rep.
This is beyond an outrage; it’s way out of bounds. I’d want to know more detail about your relationship with her and whether you can get any money back; I’d love to know what this person says in defense of themselves! Readers, what say you? How should our friend handle this situation?
