OK....here's a fun one! I feel like I've been taken advantage of because I've become good friends and a Mary Kay customer with a host of mine. She's done a couple of shows with me now, and did another one just last week. She only had a handful guest come last week, but her shows going OK as far as sales. Anyway...along with the guests, there were about 9 kids under the age of 8(seems like everyone brought their kids that night...GA!!!!), so it was chaotic to boot!!!! So, I'm kind of in the kitchen, dodging kids and pulling things out of the oven, setting things out for the snacking, and talking to one of the other customers. Meanwhile the host is in the dining room with the other customers totalling up some orders...what I didn't realize was that she was combing all the orders that she had into one to save everyone on shipping! It turned out that, once all was combined, it was like $127 in products! This included 1 or 2 stones...I'm thinking there's not a shipping business that would ship all that for under $4!!! What I've ended up doing (because by the time I realized what she had done, she had collected money from the guests, etc) was breaking the order down into about 3 orders and I'll eat the shipping costs. I was just afraid that I'd ended up getting called out by the Home Office and end up having to pay it anyway. So, for in the future, how do I handle her on this kind of situation...or any host, guest or whatever? Have you all ever had that happen before? I just don't want this to become a habit! Anyway....this was more of a vent then anything, but knowing a tactful way to confront this issue would be great too! Hope you all have a great Monday!
