Did she expect you to provide the three dozen roses too? 

 

Some people just don't think.

LOL I don't know! I mean, I've had people low ball me, but never like this and certainly not by anyone I know! Geesh

I just had the SAME thing happen. Customer sent me a picture of a 4 tier tree stump wedding cake see link below for 175-200 people. Great! I have always wanted to do one of these. ANYWAY she is all excited because she got my name from a co-worker whos wedding she attended and loved the cake I made. Wants to meet next week blah blah blah. So I said I would email her the list of flavors, fillings, frostings to choose from so she knows what she wants come next Thursday. WELL in my list it CLEARLY states the prices and I also copy and paste the price paragraph in the body of my email so there is no confusion (this has happened in the past) It also has my base prices, I do not do anything for less than x dollars. Anyway she emails me back super excited saying she cannot wait and oh.. her budget is 250.00 could we please try to stay in that price range.... uh WUT?? Note, wedding is almost an hour away sooo that adds delivery fee on top. I was/still am so shocked and couldn't help but laugh. Did her friend not tell her that her cake was 650.00? hmmm

 

Anyway, I responded with what Ii was able to do for her. 3.00/serving is my base price. Anyway I have yet to hear from her..... and I don't expect to. Safeway here you come!
