We were kind of proud of our “women-owned business” certification but in fact, recently all we gained from it was an unhappy customer. This is what he just wrote to us:
“Basta with this nonsense. It’s discriminatory, unwelcoming, and just plain foolish.”
“Senta, scusi, but why don’t you just tell all of your male customers, “Va fa in culo”?”.
“My Italian is obviously poor, but I surely get your message. Your amico, XXX”
Lovely message! What do you think? Is XXX right and the message unwelcoming?
