Anyway, I updated her on Saturday letting her know I would be preparing her order and it would be ready for pick up on Sunday at 4pm.
I am up very early on Sunday preparing the sampler and was finally finished at 3:30pm. I sent her a quick text (since this is how we've been communicating) and told her that the cupcakes are ready. In reply, she says that her husband has the car and can she pick up on Monday. No problem, Monday is fine, I'll be home at x-time. A few seconds later, she texts me back and says that she has to take her mother somewhere on Monday but will contact me after her errand. Uh, okay. That's fine.
Monday night comes, I do not hear anything from her. I text her, no reply. It's 9pm, I give up, go to bed.
It is now Tuesday and I still have the cupcakes with no word from her. I am baffled. I am going to call her in a few minutes but I really feel like this is strange.
How can this be prevented in the future? Even though there is no charge, a lot of time and money went into this "sampler" and I just don't understand why she asked for them if she wasn't going to bother to pick them up.
