Need advice on this customer, please, and my price! - Page 4

post #46 of 57
I'd say losing her as a customer was probably a good thing.

Agreed, it's not a big deal if I lost her as a customer. It's a load off my mind that I dealt with it professionally, didn't get bullied into doing what she wanted, and was nice about it, too. I couldn't have done that without the help of everyone here who gave me such great advice on how to handle this. Thanks again!

Ugh, some people.

Even if she did want to order from you again - you should really consider being fully booked for the rest of her life.

What a she-devil bitch! "No cookies for you list" for her.

On another note, those cookies are violating all kinds of copyrights.

That Etsy store's price for cookies including shipping is $3.16 unwrapped in a box. Your price was also $3.16 each ($60/19), including individual bags and ribbons.

Hahaha! I wrote a note to that shop owner about the copyright thing. If she doesnt take that listing down then Etsy might.

... and that's what I love about you both (jason and costumeczar). Just when I think a thread has been beaten to shreds, you guys come along and make me laugh. Thank you.

After taking in all of the copyrighted goodies, THIS ^^^^ was my next revelation.

Your beotchy customer is very math challenged............probably the type who rounds $99 down to ..........$50.

She's clearly not considering the cost of shipping--which is money spent by the vendor that NEVER increases the size of the cookies or the complexity of the design--in my opinion, it's wasted money.

I'd rather have fresh cookies, bagged & tagged, for the same amount of money. She'd rather be able to say that she was right.

If anyone ever mentions it, you can truthfully say, "My price is EXACTLY THE SAME as the Etsy vendor, except that you get fresher cookies, bags & ribbons, and you never have to worry about breakage or non-delivery."
I might even be tempted to post that as a comment on the FB post........and see if the witch removes the post.

JMHO

Good Lord. Some people will never be satisfied until they leave a conversation thinking they got the last word in.

Just shrug her off & laugh. What a joke. Who has time to be fishing around for the proof to make her point??? Simple people, that's who.

The best thing to do is suck all the lessons you can out of her and drop it. And, her. I love being booked for the rest of your life! That's great.

I guarantee she'll see something you do that's wonderful down the road and just HAVE TO HAVE it. Whoopsie...booked.
