customer stiffed me on huge order!!! And RUDE!!!!! - Page 4  

post #46 of 89
I am terribly sorry to hear about this happening to you. The entire situation is unconscionable and this nasty brat has some bad karma coming her way.

I was glad to read about your husband appearing there in full uniform tomorrow. Please let us know how it turns out!

I've done a bit of debt collecting as part of my job, and I've always noticed that the ones who shout the loudest and get abusive when you ask for payment are the ones who have NO intention whatsoever of paying, and often seem to end up skipping town leaving a trail of debts behind them. I had one woman who screamed and swore and carried on at me, and THEN accused me of trying to ROB her cafe and called the police on me - just because I went in and asked her to please pay her bill, which was three months overdue!!

I don't know about you guys, but after I had my baby, the last thing I wanted was a room full of people (except for family and very close friends), and they only stayed a bit. Giving birth is exhausting.

Oh GOD this is gonna be good.



Cakes-and-bakes- I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems with this customer and I hope that you are able to resolve this amicably.

I don't know you and I'm confused by your statements above. The Royal Air Force hasn't used the the rank title of Lieutenant Colonel since 1918. They use the rank- Wing Commander. A Wing Commander is in command of a squadron. Your husband would outrank the Prince, who is a Captain, I believe.

There are rules about wearing one's uniform in public and how it reflects upon the office it represents. Is your husband really going to do this in uniform???? Who is backing him up and are they also going to be in uniform?

I'm not trying to be antagonistic, but this got to be a little much.

I'm not in the united states and the royal army is a little different where i am, where 'luitenant curnal' is the rank that comes after "major".
lt. captian, captian, then major, then lt. curnal, then curnal I believe? He is in line for squadrin commander in a few years.
And yep he's going in uniform lol. I want her intimidated >icon_sad.gif !
And thats what happened.
She texted me a few hours ago saying "send your 'driver' tonight for the remaining money. (the pops she served). When my husband got there, she wasnt even there!
He had the security of the actual hospital with him just incase she got rowdy (versus the private ones that just guard her room like last time.)
So they summon the woman from the room and some other lady comes out, looks at my husband, and says "who are you? what do you want?"

He says im collecting for cakes and bakes.
She said she didnt know what he was talking about! So he explained there was a remaining unpaid balance and they scurried around to collect it. When they gave it to him my husband told them not to buy things they cant pay for and left.and he said it loud too.

And just another update,lthe pops she returned i already sold on special to a woman who liked them so much, she made another order for her daughters birthday.

Believe it or not, there was a day when women actually kept it together...

I think what she meant is that it would be odd for the woman who gave birth to feel up to having a big party that this SECOND woman was organizing.

When I had my kids, I would have KILLED my sister or mother or whoever tried to put together something like this while I was still recuperating from such a physically taxing ordeal.

If I interpreted this wrong, then I apologize.

I think that robinmarie was just pointing out that many women are too exhausted to have a room full of visitors right after giving birth. And the rude customer in question wasn't the new mother, it was her relative. No one here is excusing her behavior.

I dont see anythign wrong with that. Take out any if they were broken, give a little discount. Im sure the new customer really appreciated it!

Thank you Indydebi and Sangriacupcake for sticking up for me. Never got slammed on a forum post before. I was merely stating that I personally would not want a party in my room after giving birth. I really don't consider that a *$%$ attitude.

I was thinking the same thing, but she didnt have them that long, so maybe that's why they were resold?

I'm just glad you got the rest of your money! Sounds like the sister bit off more than she could chew.

I agree that some people with money are the ones that are tight with it and have allot to say about the price of a cake. I have allot of middle class (making around $30K-80K a yr) who NEVER complain about a price of a cake. They dont try and low ball or ask why its so much.
I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on.
