3 Times its acceptable to BULLY SOMEONE
The answer on this one is simple:
We have recently been involved in a scenario where we were bullied by another "South African company". We all left South Africa for a better life, we packed up everything we had into a suitcase...resigned from well paying jobs to come to a country that we believed will give us and our children a better life.
Stay in your corner - we were told, "we are the biggest and the cheapest and have lots more stock than you coming"- what they did not understand...like the kids in school - WE ARE NOT HERE TO COMPETE - we are here to MAKE A LIVING, to try and revive part of the life we had in South Africa. There are 68,000 South Africans in New Zealand, and while the majority of us love Cheese Curls and Flings, we are all different. There is a place under the sun for us all...I am so glad that the other 67,999 people understand that. Maybe that person can take a lesson from other people in appreciating the other South Africans around and not bully smaller South African businesses, if you cannot get your way.
A better life we definitely have, but of all of the people in the world, I did not expect being bullied by other South Africans...especially not if you are the biggest and the cheapest?
