I get a call just a bit ago on my personal cell, as soon as i pick up this lady starts yelling at me "where is my cake, it was supposed to be here an hour ago.....blah blah blah" This went on about 5 minute before I could even get a word in. I told her I have no idea who this is, I do not even do cakes anymore, and how did you get my personal cell. She gets super mad and starts yelling about her cake and how she ordered it in July and paid in full the check was written to " susie q " ( fake name) and has been cashed and everything. At this point i begin to vaguely recall a converstaion with someone who had gotten my number from a friend who thought i might be able to help the lady out, which when she called in July I told her " I am sorry I no longer do cakes" then gave her a list of about 5 people I knew in the general area that done decent work. She apprently went with someone not on the list recommended by someone else.
So when I finally get a word in again I tell her just that, she got real quiet and replied" oh sh** i didn't write down their number, i just found a piece of paper with cake lady and your phone number and thought that is who i ordered from" She appologized and we had a little laugh ( fortunately the good lord blessed me with a good humour and tolerance).
I do not know the person she said she wrote the check to to,
but boy do i feel sorry when she finds the number for whoever her cake was supposed to come from, she is one ticked lady right now.
Anybody else ever gotten irrate calls that were really menat for another baker?
