Here's the situation:
Last Thurs dd has an open house event at school. I bring decorated cookies. One of the teachers asks if I can do a last minute order for Sunday for nephew's birthday. I am completely slammed trying to prepare for a bridal show (also on Sunday- I tell her this), but because I am a glutten for punishment (and need the cash), say yes. Tell her that she will have to come pick them up. No problem. Leave without getting her phone number or cash deposit (2 things I normally NEVER do).
Sat morning: I track down her phone number from another teacher and talk to her. Tell her cookies will be ready that night if she wants to come get them. She asks if she can come late, between 9 and 10pm. No problem, I will be up working on dummy cakes. She'll call when she's on the way for directions to my house.
Sat night at 10:30: leave a voicemail that I haven't heard from her yet. I will be up all night working on dummy cakes and she can come as late as midnight. Otherwise, she needs to pick them up by 11am Sunday since my dh is leaving with the kids for the afternoon. Leave dh's name and number.
Sun evening: come home and cookies are still there. Call and leave message: I see your cookies are still here. Please call me as soon as possible.
I fall asleep at 8pm exhausted from bridal show.
9:43pm message on my voicemail: Hi, it's so and so. I was out of town longer than I expected. I still want the cookies. I will call you tomorrow at noon to talk about picking them up tomorrow night.
Monday: no phone call from client. I call at 2:30pm and say, still haven't heard from you, please call.
Pick up DD from school. Ask a teacher whom I am good friends with if client is generally reliable. Swears she is, can't believe she hasn't called, yadda yadda yadda.
Today (Tuesday): leave client a voicemail at 3pm: Still haven't heard from you. Please call and let me know what time you are coming today to pick up your cookies.
I am at loss as to what to do at this point! If you stuck with me for this long, thanks!! Any advice?
