So I started a thread a few weeks back about the owner of the resturant I really want to have our rehearsal dinner at. It’s so cute, right near our venue and the prices are affordable. It’s perfect. However, I no longer think we’re going to be able to have our rehearsal dinner there. Why, you ask? Because I’m about to get homicidal on the flaky ass owner!! Here’s a brief synopsis of our dealings thus far:
I email him a general inquiry in November.
He emails back and asks a specific question. Says he’ll email me a banquet menu.
I email back and answer the question, letting him know I’m looking forward to getting the banquet menu.
Don’t hear back.
Three weeks later, we go into said resturant to check it out. We talk to the owner. Kind of douchy, but the place is PERFECT and the price is right. Owner asks me to email him. Again.
I email him. Again.
He doesn’t respond. Again.
A week later, I email him again and say if I don’t hear from him within the week, I’ll assume he doesn’t want our business.
He emails me back that same day and says he DID email me, referencing the email in November which I responded to and never heard back. I decide to suck it up and not call him out on his error (or lack of professionalism arguing with a client over something so inconsequential.) I again ask for the banquet menu.
Bonus points: he misspells my name in every single one of the 4 emails we exchanged that day. My name is both in the email header and signed at the bottom of each email I send.
He says he’ll put together a special menu and email it to me within the week. (Misspelling my name again. Guess what’s still in the email header?!)
That was last Monday. Today is Tuesday. This is not “within the week.” As much as I’d LOVE to have our rehearsal dinner at that particular venue, I don’t think it’s an option any longer. I just can’t handle the flakiness. The worst part is it’s SO difficult to find a decent, affordable resturant to have our rehearsal dinner in! This place is PERFECT!!! But this guy is absolutely, positively KILLING ME.
