However, just b/c you're a WAHM doesn't mean that every time you miss a deadline you can give your customers a sob story and expect them to be understanding. I have missed a few deadlines, not many, but it can happen. I realize, also, that if I miss a deadline then the person may be disappointed and want to cancel, and I would fully understand (though I would be disappointed too, especially if I was just a few days past). But that's good customer service. Own the truth, either way, and be professional about it.
I totally agree. The fact that she was behind wasn't the part that bothered me - it was the fact that communication was lacking and I felt she was being short with me. I totally understand that life happens, I just think it was handled poorly.
