Frustration with Swapping

I love joining swaps (especially if it's something your making), but with joining swaps sometimes there are complications. Yes, I am an understanding person and I know that things happen where you can't complete something in time. That's completely understandable but if you have nothing going on and you sign up for a swap well in advance ( a month or more ) then I really don't think that you have a valid excuse for not having completed what you initially said you would. Whether it be to purchase something, make something, or put something together. Honestly think about it, how long does it take to do that. Ok for those who say they don't have money, then why join the swap in the first place. Maybe instead of buying that 5 dollar cup of coffee at Starbucks (I don't drink coffee so I don't know how much it is I'm just setting an example), you could go ahead and buy that 5 dollar swap item that is due at the end of the week. If scrapping and swapping, and all that goes along with it is not an important thing (I won't say priority because I think family is the main priority lol) then why join swaps to begin with. It just irks me that we sign up for something in the beginning of November, and it's not due till the beginning or mid December and there are always those slackers that just can't get it completed. Like seriously why'd you even bother. You are just hindering the people who got their stuff on time and were expecting things to be completed and done. I think that's why I'm so hesitant to join anything anymore. I'd like to think that I'm a responsible person and when I join something I try to get it completed as quickly as possible so as to not be late, but I guess not everyone is as responsible as me. It just sucks sometimes, and I just needed to rant about this because I know that I am not the only person in the scrapping world that feels like this. Slackers we love you, but get things done on time please! Thanks haha!
