I've been dabbling myself in the cake business for the past three Rayas now. Amazing, right? I know, even I have to shake my head in disbelief.
Now, I can finally say that I have gotten my feet in the business. Okay la, sometimes a foot especially when things get out of control and all that is left is to cry my eyes out in my kitchen in the wee hours of the morning.
I digress. What I'm trying to say politely is, can people who plan to pick up their cakes from my home, to PLEASE come at the time that they say they're coming? If you say that you're coming at 10 am, so PLEASE come at 10 and not at 11.30. I have better things to do than to be your lady in waiting.
There have been SO MANY TIMES that I have to postpone my prior arrangement due to some people who totally disregard their promise to come at the times that they themselves have specified. I don't mind waiting for 15 minutes or 30 even but one and a half hours and sometimes two is simply too much. And please, do have the courtesy to call if you plan to come late so that I can readjust my schedule especially if it's late at night.
I know I'm a SAHM who bakes but I do have chores to do, places to go, business other than my cake to attend to and children to look after. A simple 'Sorry' would certainly put me back into my cheery mood.
I sincerely hope that punctuality improves after this else I'll have to have a demerit system put specially for tardy customers. Boleh ke?
So there! I've ranted.
