So, Monday I get an order with 3 day delivery. Tuesday, I get a message that says, “We are waiting for delivery tomorrow”. I advise that the delivery is scheduled for Thursday morning, not Wednesday. Buyer responds, “but if you can get it sooner I would appreciate it.” Of course buyer does not appreciate it enough to actually pay to expedite the order.
Then this morning I get “when will you deliver?”, I say "Thursday morning (editing out the part about how I had already explained it so that a 5 year old would understand) and buyer says "I was hoping you would do us a favor, bummer.)
I now waste more time explaining that this is business, and that I had orders ahead of his, many who had paid the extra $100 to upgrade to 24 hour delivery. Finally decided to cut my losses and cancel the order as it was taking more time dealing with than it was worth.
How much of your soul do you allow these demons to take?
