I don't at all want this message to seem nasty or appear to be stirring, I just wish to air my point, and try to ease a situation.

I am sure both ladies at each coffee shop near the station are lovely individuals and each have a side to thier own story...

But, frankly, I feel uncomfortable hearing about thier stories each time I happen to pass the stand/shop or go in to get a coffee. It's getting a bit too malicious as each one vents against the other... to the extent if you're caught in one of the rants you feel you cannot leave, especially as one or the other ends up crying, it's horrible to see and can make an onlooker feel helpless.

Ladies... I understand you both feel hard done by, and each of your stories sound terrible. But your venom for each other will end up losing custom on both sides, it is not dignified to bad mouth.
My post could possibly appear that way, it is not meant to be like that. I just fear the situation has become so volatile, as an outsider I felt the need to suggest maybe you should bury the hatchet and come to some sort of cease fire... by all means hold grudges against one another, but the comments about each other to customers is unprofessional, it is really no way to deal with the situation.

I agree, Catford and Catford Bridge are desperate for a nice Coffee Hut place, open one there! There are too many coffee places already in FH. It's not a matter of winning a war, just been grown up and move on -literally, whomever moves to Catford will get a roaring trade.

It's very disturbing, it's disturbia! Haha, sorry I shouldn't laught but its been like 6 months? Rolleyes

This is getting women in business a bad name.

I think that is a bit OTT Roz! if there is a bad news story about men do you say it's getting businessmen a bad name?
