REFUNDING UPSET CUSTOMERS - Page 3

post #31 of 47
Thread Starter 

Ok Folks,

 

Today is D-day. I am praying that there is not confrontation in that bank. I understand a lot of you think I should NOT give the refund because they got what they asked for. I am going to walk in there with a ruler also. I might rethink that part because that might be rude. It is 5am here, way too early to be up worrying about some stupid people who probably still in their beds. 

 

Thanks for all the support and replies. I will let you guys know how thing turn out.

A paper cut out will be very deceiving. A flat 6" circle does t really depict my 6" round cake. This particular cake is rarer well known. Your description should have been enough for them. I wonder if this is an excuse instead of saying the real reason?
To avoid any confusion next year, I would utilize the suggestion of a previous poster: give height & length dimensions. Otherwise, shame on them.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Whatever happens today, REFUSE to let stupid people ruin your Christmas. I can assure you that although they made the problem, they won't be thinking about you at their Christmas events. 

 

Chin up, you are doing them a service by giving the refunds. Just go in there knowing that you delivered as promised, in a rush, and have nothing to hang your head for. I agree that you should not have offered any refund, but since you are, you should hold your head up high and then let it go!

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!!!!  

 

So I got to the bank and I met up with the lady who I was liaising with. I walked with an excel sheet of all the orders and was ready. Ended up that only ONE person wanted a refund.

 

When we delivered the cakes on Friday, the person who I was dealing with (Let's call her Ms. N) skipped work that day so she put another woman in charge of collecting the orders (Ms. Z). Z also had ordered a cake and I guess when she saw it she decided that 6 inches was too small so she started to rant and rave and called Ms N to complain.

 

THEN Ms N called me to say that nobody wanted the cakes. Turns out that horrible Ms Z didn't even tell some of the other customers that the cakes had arrived. I guess she was too busy ranting.

 

So when I get there to deal with Ms N there are still cakes sitting there but when she calls the others who ordered they just come and pick up the cakes with no hassle. They did not even know the cakes where there. I took back Ms Z cake and that is the end of the story. 

 

I learned A LOT.

Glad it was more of a misunderstanding than a major problem.  And I'm so sorry your weekend was ruined over it.  But now you know that it was just one little stinker causing the whole uproar and not all the customers.  So now you can forget about them and enjoy your Christmas.  Yay!

On Friday my husband dropped the cakes to the bank because I was busy finishing up the Wedding cakes for the same day. When I called him today and told him  that Ms Z was the whole problem he said she did have an attitude when he dropped it off. She was just like "Put it there" and handed him the money. Didn't even check it. I should not have let one idiot stress me out for real.

Oh and yesterday a friend called and asked me if I had any cakes left. YES I DO. He is getting Ms Z cake. lol. The good thing about these sort of cakes is that the longer they soak the better it tastes. If it was a chocolate cake or something else he would have been out of luck. Everything turned out perfectly. icon_biggrin.gif. Now I can move on and enjoy my Christmas and do some baking for my family. Also, when I asked Ms N why she did not answer her phone all weekend she said it fell in water. icon_confused.gif. Don't know if to believe that or not but it's over now so who cares. 

 

Thanks EVERYONE for all your kind words and support. I don't know what I would have done without you guys. It's like having backup right there with me. You guys don't know how much you have helped. I hope next Christmas I am not on here crying about some other tragedy. lol.

 

Thanks again.
