Yikes…very tough situation, indeed. Provided the story is true (and we’re giving the benefit of the doubt because hopefully no one would make that up), you are right that it is likely the last thing on their minds. Furthermore, if the cake maker was injured enough so that she is in the hospital or laid up recovering…the woman who answered the email might not have access to funds or the ability to get funds on her sister’s behalf.

It’s definitely a sticky situation. Is it imperative you get this before you can pay for the other cake? If not, I might suggest waiting for a bit and then following up with a phone call. Good luck!

That really blows. The whole situation is unfortunate! If it were me (and feel free to disregard this, of course!) – I would give her another week of “recovery” and then follow up by email AND by phone. In your phone message (provided you don’t speak with someone directly) simply say: I am following up on my earlier email to discuss repayment of the deposit – feel free to ring me when you are feeling up to it.
