Q & A

WHAT‘S YOUR OPINION?
My hubby and I have a circle of friends we hang out with from time to time and we love each of them dearly like family. The one couple I’ve known since childhood. We have since introduced them to the other couples in our circle. Ok the childhood friend she took an order for cheese cakes for her daughter’s school back in October during the Halloween holiday and all those in the circle ordered,except us, one couple ordered two which was around $40.00 total everyone paid in cash the day of the order. Ok the other thing she asked for their orders, they didn’t request a pie from her so I feel she was responsible for getting these people their pies when they arrived. OK the main reason they said they ordered them was to have them for Thanksgiving. Well Thanksgiving came and went, Christmas came and went still no delivery of pies, she has since told them that she has their pies in her freezer at home. But they wanted them for the holiday. Now she is trying to invite everyone over for New Years so they can get their pies, for one thing  I won’t be going to the party, but the question is this even though she has the pies in her freezer should she refund them their money seeing they didn’t get the pies for the holiday they ordered them for?

    • I think she should offer a refund as an option. However being friends requires us to exercise more patience and forgiveness.
      Take the pie and enjoy it for breakfast on New Years day or hold onto it for Super Bowl.

    • I do tend to agree that while I maybe frustrated with what happen the main things is the reason for the sale in the first place to raise money for her daughter’s school. While I maybe upset. I would let it go because the money was for a good cause.

    • You don't mention it, but were the cheesecakes promised by a particular date? Typically school fundraisers have a clear date of arrival of the items.

      I went through years of school fundraisers and it was always a 50/50 split as to whether I delivered or the items purchased were picked up from me. But, since I always got the original order form (or at least a copy) back with the contact information, I made calls right away to let people know their items had arrived.

      I don’t feel as if anyone is responsible for delivery, but at the very least s/he should have called to say the items had arrived. And, regardless of the timing, since it’s for the school, I agree with sucking it up and considering it a lesson learned.

    • Why has it taken so long??

      I’d say the option for a refund should be given, however if she does have them, pick them up & enjoy them on a diff occasion?

    • Feather she said the return date was on the order form, but she kept them way after they were delivered to the school.

      Thanks Jenz.

    • Because the orders were for a fundraiser I would not ask for my money back. I would however demand she deliver the pie to my house because I would not be attending her New Year’s festivities.

      Also, this would be the last time I ordered from her as well.

    • I totally agree with Tracy. Ask her to deliver them in time for your New Years Day Dinner (give her a deadline), and I would be sure to not order from her again.  It sounds like she didnt hold up her end of the deal.
