Now the deadline for guest count and flavor has come and gone and I am stuck wondering if she still wants this or not or even where I am supposed to deliver. I'm sure I could look up her address, but how do I even know that is where she will be. This is driving me crazy, I have never had a paying customer do this and now, here I am stuck dealing with it for a GC I donated to support my son's school.
Needless to say, I won't be donating anymore GC's, just product.
DH suggested collecting a cash deposit that I would refund upon delivery if I ever do another GC donation (which I won't). I really like that idea, in hindsight. I really thought that the fact she had to turn over the GC would make sure she didn't leave me standing. Now I'm wondering if she changed/cancelled the date of her party and is just not bothering to contact me, because, hey, either way she's doesn't get her GC back (which I would absolutely have made an exception if she had been respectful through this process but then had an issue outside of her control).
Anyway, partial vent, and wanted to share the cash deposit idea in hopes it can save someone else on here some trouble in the future.
