Disappointed

I am very sad and diappointed as I write this! I took an order almost 2 weeks ago with my mixes; a very large order. I sent the person the total and told her she could pay when she picked it up. She messaged me yesterday onfacebook that she no longer wanted the majority of the $160 order. She is one of my husband's sisters and lives out of state. This is out of charcter for her. Apparently her husband's side of the family is not exchanging gifts this year and she just found out about it. I have been tunring people away and now noone else wants the stuff as it it is wrapped in gifts sets. I had to pay my helper to wrap and work on her order last week. The order has been sitting ready since before my cutoff date (12//11). I would only have 5 days to get rid of it and I have my won stuff to get done. Daddy just had surgery and I have to take he and Mom both to the doc this coming week as well as other things. I also have my children to take care of. When I told her I could not undo what I had done. she could not remember all of what she ordered when I sent her the original list she went me she left off some of the things off her current list but said it was the same and she didn't understand why I was charging her a higher amount but she would pay it!

I just want people to be responsible, do what they say and for now on. I will get paid in full, in advance! Lesson learned! I want to do the right thing but why should I get stuck with her mistake?!

What would you do? I have no use for the stuff myself and everyone that I have asked if they would want it said if I had known sooner....you told me you were out fo mixes and now I've already been shopping!

Just sad...........

Marva, what did she order? Maybe I could take it off of your hands.

Let me know Dear Friend!

Hi Marva, I have learned from past incidents like this one with your sister in law to never sell anything to family. When something like this happens, there are hard feelings and it is just not worth it. The only exception would be when my kids are selling for scouts or school. I hope that it all works out and that you feel better soon.
Sending payers and hugs for you and your parents!

I'm so sorry that happened, Marva. If there are some crockpot bean soup mixes in there, I'll take some off your hands. John was asking me about that last week, and I realized I had missed the cutoff date. Sorry.
