Grrrrrr....

We have to cater tomorrow, and I am really upset about it. This gentleman called, emailed, called, emailed, and called, and called and asked us to cater. No matter how many times I told him catering was closed until the Spring, he insisted that he was going to make it work. "I will just go order 100 dawgs from the shack then." No, sir, that won't work. Can you imagine being behind someone who is waiting for 100 dawgs? That'd never work.

So we told him he had to have his event to Tuesday, because Jayson and I just CAN'T miss mutual, especially tomorrow (New Beginnings for me, Jayson's first mutual being Scout Master and Young Men's president--I'll explain later). This guys said he'd move it. Then called and said he couldn't make it work, so he moved his event by a few minutes. That doesn't really help either--event in Provo at 6:00, mutual at 6:30 in Springville. We're going to be in a HUGE hurry to get this done and then get to mutual, and Jayson and I will both be really cranky. But what choice did this guy leave us?

But the thing I'm most upset about? They'll be having their sweet little party in their warm, comfortable cultural hall and we'll be outside grilling in THIS.


I'm so mad.

What a jerk! I am soo sorry you have to do that. You should just not show up and THEN who will be left out in the cold? (pun intended)

That sucks Heidi, but what can you do?... Ofcourse you can't have him showing up at the shack and ordering 100 hotdogs all at once. Some people are so totally rude and thoughtless when it comes to "serving them". Spencer's had plenty of customers who will place an order over the internet and then they expect they're movies to be to them the VERY NEXT DAY- despite the fact that the websites disclaimer that warns it can take up to 14 business days for their order to arrive! Some of these people are so impatient they'll call their credit card company 2 days after ordering and insist that charges not go through, but they still get their movies for free and they keep them!!! It really peturbs us! One lady in fact, who was living in Korea, placed an order for like $60 but refused to pay the shipping, and made such a fuss about shipping cost, our company ended up footing the $80 shipping/handling bill!!!
Anyhow, good luck trying to get everything worked out with the customer and mutual tonight!!!

Ummmm ... so why'd you give in? Chances are he'll try to use you again in the future and pull the same crap. Just say NO.

Some people just never give up!! I really dislike stubborn men like that!! It least you'll have a grill to kinda keep you warm!! But in all honesty J-dawgs is the best and I probably wouldn't settle for no either!! LOL!! :)
