I have a problem. About three months ago I found out via my PR firm that a competitor had contacted them. Now when I say competitor, I mean.. belts and headbands.. I also mean a national reach.. AND she lives in my town. I know what are the chances of this.. but that is the story.
So she contacted them about three months ago and they told her NO. Ok thanks PR firm.. I appreciate that.
Sooo yesterday she contacted one of my REPS. She said a bunch of "stuff" and my REP told her no. She then proceeded to tell her that she was the "oringinal" and that "everyone" including this chic (me) copied her line. (She has an obvious high opinion of herself AND her line)....my word.. "the original". What does that mean anyway? ... Oh .. right... she must have invented the belt... oh that kind of original. WOW.
My husband thinks I should contact her. One of my friends said if I do contact her I should call her.. (not do the whole sly email routine). One of my friends said NO.. b/c what is the reason to contact her.. will it change her ways? Take the high road. My REP said if I do not contact her.. SHE will call her back and tell her off.
Ultimately, I will pray about it (yes I pray). And if you know anything about me.. the life I lead.. you know I take the high road on many things.. but every now and again.. I want a fight. (that sounded very tough, huh?)
So does this type of situation, in your opinion, warrant a response?
