I'm so upset right now. I had a show that the host blew off, and I worked my butt off for it. There was supposed to be 42 people there, but she blew off the reminder calls and then didnt' follow up to get outside orders. I submitted her show on 12/30, and I had a bunch of shows going right then, plus some monetary transactions through family for Christmas, that I confused myself and thought that I had her entire show accounted for in my bank account. Turns out, the biggest order of her show ($160) gave the check to her instead of me.. I thought that was what happened, but she kept insisting I had the check. And I couldn't get ahold of the guest to find out. So, here I am, the show already submitted a day before I even find the paperwork that says the check was written to the host. I can't get ahold of the host for 2 days to tell her, and when I finally get ahold of her, it's just her machine. (She never answers her phone). So I leave a message, then email her. And a day later try calling her again, no answer. I've emailed her twice, called her more times than I can count, and still nothing. She told me when she was giving me her show order amount the morning of the 30th, that if there were any problems, she'd be more than welcome to fix them (monetary). so I can't get ahold of her, we have some personal financial difficulties, and I have to take money from my PC account that I had in there to cover the show, out. my paycheck deposited though, so there was some money in my PC account. but the next day my account bounced because she didn't get me the check in time. It's been 13 days now! She can't call. she can't email me. I can't get ahold of her no matter how hard I try. The order was delivered to her house almost a week ago now, so no doubt each of the guests including the one who ordered the $160 of stuff has their product by now. So, I'm out the $160 for the woman's order (over half of which is actually my PAYCHECK!), the $30 it cost me to buy the two recipe's ingredients for her show (that only had 3 people at it) that she told me she'd reimburse me for, and the $64 for the overdraft charge! $254!! I'm out $254! We're having to borrow money to get gas so my husband can go to work, and to buy food for our son. I've got bills to pay and a budget to keep up, and we're only on one income.. And I can't submit another show (with the exception of payment through credit cards) until this is fixed.. Which really screws me up b/c I got a show coming up soon! Now, I know I should have been more careful and I goofed up when it came to making sure the funds were in there before I clicked the button. I deposited about 15 checks at the bank that afternoon, so it was partially my fault. And I know that I can't automatically throw stones of blame and anger at her, because I don't really know her situation either. But I'm so frustrated and upset.. I guess I just needed to vent. From now on, my rules will be more strict when it comes to this stuff, and it may seem harsh, but I can't afford this if it should happen again--and there is always a chance when the only form I have of PP payment is my PC debit card. Again, sorry for me ranting, but I really just needed to let it all out so I don't scream and wake my little one, who's sleeping in the next room. Please tell me that all PC hosts are not like this.. because this woman has made the last 2 weeks of my life so frustrating it has seemed like an eternity--and has almost tempted me to put PC on the back burner for a bit.
