So today my mother had a get together. One of the women who came over my mother's house loves vintage jewelry, so I took her and my sister to my new contact. He has bins of vintage jewelry in costume and fine jewelry. I didn't get to see all the bins because I couldn't get to his back room (my sister wanted to leave), but I did pick up some things that I liked. I brought back the jewelry to my mother's house and they wanted to see what I got. I took out a diamond and sapphire ring. I said that I was going to pop out the diamonds. My mother said "You have to take that to a jeweler so they can get the diamonds out for you." My father said "Don't try that yourself! You might ruin it!" I have been in jewelry for how many years??? And they still have no clue what I do for a living or that I have a store??? Some jewelry that I made for my mother has stones that I set. How does she think the stones got in there? I could feel myself getting agitated, but I calmly said "What do you think I do for a living?" The response? "I don't know what you do on that computer, but I think it's time you got a real job." I just walked away.
