    Hi Margaret,

    On the website your prices are advertised differently?

    Can you please send me the pricing on strawberries not dipped in chocolate?

    Kind regards,
    Hayley

    Hi Hayley,

    You placed an order last Thursday and have NEVER confirmed your order for Monday AFTER 3 emails .

    You asked for a quote which you were given then queried the prices against the website.Why ask in the first place. May I suggest you read the Home page of our site regarding pricing.

    I personally don't have the time or inclination to sit on the computer all day playing email ping pong. Please confirm your order by 9am this morning some 7 hrs before the function begins TELEPHONE 8200668 otherwise I will take it that the order is no longer required the QUOTE IS $9.00 PER PERSON .( at this late stage chicken drumsticks will not be an option Thai chicken cakes or mini chicken satays,s will be ) AND MAY I SUGGEST YOU COLLECT YOUR OWN STRAWBERRIES.

    We are a very busy catering company who has given you very good service in the past and will not be treated in this off hand manner business is business. This job if goes a head will be cash on delivery or payed by credit card. Incidentally we are going to be selling our house very soon and question your companies professional practises if this incident is anything to go by.

    Regards Margaret.

    That is the rudest email I have received in a long time.

    We will not be requiring your services again.

    Get into the real world young lady if you ever attain the position to be self employed you may understand hard working successful business people don't make it hiding behind late floods of emails. Not having the fortitude to call by telephone tells me your incrusted in your sit down loads of spare time job.

    Re rudest email tells me you once again you are not in the real world and haven't fully matured but it will happen.You were probably bottle feed till late teens.

    I just have so much fun with time wasters. Have a great party shame you will have to pay so much more for it.

    I will hopefully be calling your boss before Christmas re our not listing our property with Ray Whites I am sure they will be interested and could give you more to do. And you thought my first email was rude. I expect you still believe in Santa Clause.

    Sounds like the catering company person had a bad day and took it out on that lady. The irony in this is that she says the person asking for the pricing is acting juvenile when SHE is the person flipping out for no reason. Don't you just love email?
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Absolutely believable. We live in a world where people spit in your burgers, etc.
