This can be a problem...I have a bunch of people I could call in an emergency, but there are others who would just as soon tell me to go pound sand then tell everyone in town how I failed to deliver the order. Interestingly, it's the home-based bakers who would be helpful, as I think about it, and the storefronts who would tell me to get lost.

There has to be at least one person you can pair up with for situations like that. I bet if you looked at who you have to chosoe from you can find someone whos' nto a jerk. Maybe not, though! icon_rolleyes.gif
