Let me start by saying that I do cake decorating in my spare time. I have a full time job, but I enjoy decorating cakes and it keeps me busy most weekends.
I've recently been in contact with a "wedding coordinator" (she's an acquaintance from high school who is trying to become a wedding coordinator, IMO she has a long way to go, but thats just my perspective). I really have no issue working with a wedding coordinator, however, in this case she has become a pain in my you-know-what. She calls mulitple times to ask questions that she's already received the answer to (more than once). She leaves emails unanswered. I've already explained to her that this is NOT my main job, yet she seems to think I can just whip up a cake in a day (she once called me months in advance about a baby shower cake, and then didn't ever respond to my quote until the day before and expected me to be able to do it). She keeps asking for me to provide a wider variety of samples for her client (I've already explained I only do samples when I already have an order with that flavor..i cannot afford to whip up an entire batch for one sample!).
I know that ultimately it could bring me more business. At this point, the extra money is nice but not something I'm relying on. I'm just not sure I can work with her. Do I break ties NOW? If so, what do I tell her? Should I just grin and bear it? TIA
