Who Doesn’t Love A Good Cringey Moment?

…especially if it’s someone else’s.

You know what I’m talking about. Someone you know says or does something stupid and you close your eyes, or look on through your fingers.

Take last night as a prime example.

Me, Mrs Mac, Oisin, and Finn were at the local hotel grabbing some bar food.

As we’re sitting there, I hear two people coming up behind me – one was slurring his words a little, and talking out loud.

My first thoughts….’He’s had a few too many to drink, and he’s probably being walked to the door.’

My wife on the other hand, leapt from her seat with a….’Oh there’s, Fergal! Come on Finn, let’s say hello to him.’

To fill you in on a little backstory, Fergal was a Down Syndrome child that went to school with my eldest son, Matthew. And to say he was popular was an understatement. – Hence, my wife’s seat jumping and taking Finn, our eight
year old, with her. 

Anyhoo, with my back still to the group, I heard the man with ‘Fergal’ say the name, Kenneth.

“Kenneth? Who’s Kenneth?” I say to myself, as I continue on eating with my back to them. “Must be a brother or something?”

A few moments later, Finn and Catherine returned.

“So how is…..”

Her red face answered my question.

‘You know something, I’ve never seen him before, Mammy.” Finn said, getting back in front of his dinner.

“That wasn’t Fergal, Finn…..”

Chuckling at her embarrassment, I almost tossed in the ‘You think all down syndrome people look alike’ line, but could see she wanted the floor to swallow her up.

Ah, bliss. – Ammunition I can use whenever I’m losing our next slagging match.

But, while some cringey moments can provide entertainment, you don’t want people to cringe after buying something off you.

Take coloring books as an example. Some people think that you can throw anything onto a page and expect people to pay for it. Or better yet, try and sell the same PLR images that are already in another hundred coloring books.

You don’t want that. – It makes better business sense to sell to the same people over and over again, rather than running off with the cash after the first purchase.

If you’re happy with the first option, do nothing and keep doing what you’re doing.

But, if you want to make your own coloring book images, quicker than you thought possible, and that are totally unique to you, click here.

PS – Sadly, most of the peeps selling on JVZoo haven’t coped on to that simple marketing fact.
