To make a loooonnnnnnggg story short, I have a client who wants me to make her a cake for sometime in May. I have told her she will need to pay in advance in order to reserve her date, and she is fine with this. So, she was supposed to come last Friday, and did not show up, no call or email or anything. She emailed me later on that night, saying she had to take her son to the hospital b/c he was sick and that's why she didn't come. Whether I believe her is a completely different story, as I have baked for her before and she showed up 2 hours late, no call or email, and claimed she was at a funeral. Anyways, she sent me about 3 emails on the weekend, wanting to come and drop off payment. I told her she could just put it in my mail slot at my house b/c I was busy with Easter festivities all weekend, and she said fine. Sent me an email saying she would drop it off last night. I get home, no money. So she sends me an email this morning, saying she is on her way to drop off the money. I get home from work expecting the envelope to be there, and STILL no money!!!!!!! I am so frustrated with her beyond belief, and no longer feel like I should make her cake b/c this seems like it's some sort of game or something to her. I'm just asking for anyone else's thoughts or opinions on the matter, and how I should tell her that I am no longer willing to make her cake? Thank you in advance!
