Sick to my stomach - Page 2

post #16 of 32
The first bride sound like a selfish little B!tch. At the end of the day I think all that matters here is that your driver survived and will be okay!

The last client cake was an hour late, but because there cake was smaller and simple, I was able to give them exactly what they wanted. They were understanding and made me feel a little better.
I still sick to my stomach!!!!!

That all sucks . Glad to hear he was ok.

I am thinking with the first case there has to be compensation . You should feel good about being able to provide something. That is what makes you the professional. And the better person. She should be less of a bridezilla. have some compassion but at the same time - you were late and did not deliver what she ordered. Are you refunding at all?

Does your insurance cover damage to product that was in the vehicle during the accident? If it does, then refund the bride before she gets back from her honeymoon and starts demanding it. It's great that you were able to provide a cake even after the accident, but I don't agree with the PP's saying that she shouldn't get anything back...you worked a miracle for her and she doesn't realize it, but she still didn't get what she ordered and paid for, and it was an hour late.

I hope your driver will be okay. I broke my leg right above the ankle a couple years ago and it still hurts.

You rock girl!
Being able to produce two wedding cakes in such a small time frame and under such STRESS ful conditions is quite an achievement. You should be proud of yourself! I hope your driver will recover soon.

All I got to say is AWESOME,AWESOME!! Great job and I thank the lord for keeping your worker ok and not in worse shape! Amazing story! God bless!

I'd say the client should be thrilled you were able to do anything at all! Your delivery guy got hit by a truck and you still delivered a cake! That is amazing!

I cannot believe that the first party was not more forgiving...I mean your delivery guy could of been killed! You still provided a cake...I think you did a great job considering the circumstance!!

Wow what a terrible day!!!!!

I'm SO glad your delivery guy is okay! My mom was killed in an accident with a semi-flatbed so to get off with a broken ankle is SO great (although its NOT good it happened at all). How scary...yikes. (Hm that didn't come out so good...you know what I mean, right!!!!)

Hopefully the bride will get over it!!!! Maybe your insurance will cover the cost of the cakes, like someone else said, so you can also afford to give partial refunds or even a full one to the first bride, although her attitude is terrible. Someone almost died to get her cake to her!!!! Surely she can appreciate that...

We paid for you to come- I don't care if you were in the hospital! It was MY DAY!!!" Wow!

Glad your driver is okay- please don't waste your time or energy on the first bride.

Actually, there is a story on www.etiquettehell.com about this very thing. A guest was involved in an accident and was lifelined (!) to the hospital. Bride called guest while she was in the hospital and told guest that was no excuse for missing her wedding and by the way the guest still owed her a present.

I just don't put anything past 'em anymore. As unbelieveable as it gets, there's always a story out there somewhere to top it. icon_eek.gif

I am happy to hear your driver is okay. And it was very big of you, and professional of you, to do what you did! You have no reason to have your head down.
Grandma, I continued with my cakes. All that you taught me I am taking with me as I move forward. I miss you. Everytime I mix my batter please lay your hands on the mixer. Everytime I show my cakes it's "OUR" work on display. I hope I make you proud!

So glad your delivery driver is okay. Forget the b!tchbride, she just shot her karma all to hell, she'll get hers.

You are to be commended for even being able to produce two cakes. You must really ROCK !!

Also sounds like you need a new clause to your contract.. Not responsible for acts out of my control. I will work with you to come up with a solution but sometimes sh!t happens. icon_biggrin.gif

I think you should be VERY PROUD of what you were able to give them. My God, most people could not have pulled that off.

Congrats on a very good save. To bad the couple was not understanding...accidents DO happen. That is why they call them accidents.
