With this, the start of ToughTruth on topix, I would like to discuss Julie Ablan Woodrow and her business, Ablan's Business Center. I really have to wonder, is 4000 characters enough for this discussion?

The answer, NO!

I have known Julie and her family, granted not on a personal go out to dinner level, but known, for the better part of 14 years now. Let me tell you, when they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, they are RIGHT!

Julie is one of the most self righteous, condescending, and hate filled people that I have ever had the displeasure of knowing. No matter what the situation is, Julie is right. She is always the victim and no one ever does anything for her. If someone can be scheming against her, they are.

At least this is what she thinks...

No matter who tries to help, it is never good enough. No matter the situation, it is someone else who is to blame. No matter how hard someone works for her, they are trying to ruin her. No matter what, everyone is against her.

Now let's review the reality of the situation, shall we?

Julie thinks that she places everything she has into her business and it's people, however, she does nothing but set herself back. She thinks that she is doing all she can to grow her "professional appearance" however, she just ruins it more and more, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.

Every time I have to go in her store, which believe me, is as rare as possible. Mostly when Staples is just too far away, she is always fighting with her husband, yelling at an employee, just being down right mean for no apparent reason.

Knowing her sons as well as I do, I am honestly glad to say they do not act like her. Even they complain non stop about her when she isn't around to their friends and really anyone who will listen. Every time they try to talk to her, she just doesn't get it. She just blames someone else.

Now, let's talk about professionalism. Is it really professional to trash talk other business owners and locations in your area? Trash talk the people you think are competition? My thought, no. This just makes you look insecure and petty.

This is not word for word, but as close an attempt as possible of a conversation I heard her sons, yes, her own flesh and blood, having behind her back.

Mike - We really need to talk with mom. She is getting out of control.

Frank - I know. She is under a ton of stress but this is getting crazy. She needs help.

Mike - If I hear her complain about the people at AT&T, Dad, her employees (I know Emily was one, I can't remember the other name) or people that are "out to get her" one more time, I am going to lose it.

Frank - She is trying her best but thing's just aren't working.

Mike - She isn't trying the best she can. All she does is complain about everything and everyone. If she spent half of the time she spends complaining and trashing everyone and places it in the business, imagine what she would accomplish.

Frank - But she...

Mike - "Interrupting Frank" There is no but. She is only there half the time she should be and doesn't appreciate anything anyone does for her. I know she has doctors appointments but she has so much more effort she could put back in the business and just doesn't. She is going to go under.

There was more to this conversation but this is all I remember. It is sad when even you own flesh and blood see you for what you are. I have to wonder when they will bring it up to her and see her completely break down.

I for one am DONE going to her so called business and paying her prices. I will take the trip to Watertown, I will take the steps to avoid her doors, I will not let her see another dime from me. There is no excuse for the way she is and the way she acts.

I encourage all of you, reply to this and share your stories. Let others know what kind of person and business this really is.

Let's boycott her business like so many others have done and give it to someone that deserves it!
