I've FLIPPIN' HAD IT!! Would like to sell my shop. - Page 4

You TOTALLY need a day with the kids. Lots of people take Sunday and Monday (weddings being generally on Saturday means that you might not be as busy on Sunday and Monday, I think that it's Leahs that does that, ask her!).

ALSO... SO many places, particularly gov't places, have signage that says that they do not tolerate ANY abuse of staff. Make sure that you say something like that!!! My mom has a roll of toilet paper that says "John Wayne Toilet Paper... It doesn't take CRAP off anyone!!!"

Good luck! I wish you all the best!

Edited to add: And don't you wish that you were mean enough back to just say "Oh, You don't like it? What can I do? Nothing? Then take your money and I'll keep your d***** cake!!!!"

With 158k a year you're doing something right.

You need a Mary Alice--someone sharp, confident and firm who can handle conflict. If you lose a few customers who are difficult, you've merely lost some stress

Do what you're best at and enjoy the most

Delegate the yuck

I'm closed on Sunday and Monday. When I first opened my store I was only closed on Sunday and that lasted about 2 months. Every Sunday I found myself laying on the soffa unable to function, and crying because I didn't want to work the next day. I had no time for errands, laundry, bank and post office, etc.

After a couple of weeks of being closed on Sundays and Mondays I felt like a new person.

When I say closed I really mean CLOSED. No cake pick-ups, no going in to *just finish up that* etc.

Abso-freaking-lutley! I could have written this. When I added Monday as my REAL day off, it made SUCH a difference!
