Went to meet a client last night told her i would be 30 minutes late due to baby sitter not showing. She said it was fine she only lived one block from the coffee shop. I asked if she was sure or would she like to reschedule if it was too late? She said no. I show up 25 minutes later sat there for 45 minutes no show. I then emailed her to tell her that I'm sorry we could not connect and told her i was there from 7p-7:45p asked if another date worked for her.
She replied that she was there from 7:05-7:30p then came back at 8p-8:20p it is not possible that i missed her unless she is invincible. There was two others in the shop at the time i asked them both if they are meeting with a cake designer both said no. Arr this just makes me feel so bad because i was there! She said how she cannot trust me to make her child's cake, and that she will go with another decorator that would show up! This is so not good for my name, this has never happened i swear i was there and she does not believe me!
My gf had me thinking, when i got home she said "she didn't show up huh"? I said no she did not how did you know? She said "didn't you try to get a hold of her three times to even confirm the meeting"? I said yes i did but she answered two minutes before it was time for us to meet up so i didn't really see it as a no show. I mean i was the late one after all. She then said that the girl has done this in the past i had to look WAY back into my order forms and confirmed she did a no show for FREE cupcakes. I still feel awful i don't like anyone thinking that i am unreliable! That's no good for my business.
