yeah I don't know why I let him push me into it! I guess I was just caught off guard or something and felt stupid. This was something I struggled with when I first started out, but it's been years and I know better at this point.
He kept saying "I'm just trying to help you out and give you business." Which is obviously not the case because I have a very successful business of people that are willing to pay for quality work. Ugh, lesson learned.
I won't cancel, just because I think it's a bad thing to do (even though I'd love to wait until the day of the party and just tell him to go to a grocery store!), but perhaps I'll just make it with a box mix and store bought icing ... and my goodness, I'm not spending the amount of time I usually do on cakes. I'll act like I'm getting paid $30...
Thanks for the advice everyone!
You always know how to make me feel better!
