Cookie Standoff Day 2

The problem with this whole thing is that the mom's excuses seem so vaguely plausible - a family member died, she's changing cell phone providers and she's been in training meetings. Yet, at the same time, they are so shady. No word from her at all today. I called the home and her daughter's father said she brought the money with her to work. I called work and she wasn't there. I called work a second time and she had left for the day. I called her home and said I expect to see the money at tomorrow night's meeting. I feel awful being so naggy about it, but we're talking $570. That's 1/3rd of all the cookie money we owe. I just called the service unit cookie manager and I'm still fine with not turning all my stuff in. Clearly it is a good thing I didn't trust her with all the money. I feel so frustrated with this, though.

It sounds like you're doing all you can, and you HAVE to be naggy b/c she is giving you no other option.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

You know what? Don't feel bad about being naggy. They need you to be naggy otherwise you will NEVER see that money. If she doesn't bring it to the meeting or doesn't show up to the meeting, you need to turn her ass in....no ifs ands or buts

I wouldn't feel bad about it at all. She shouldn't have put you in that position. She sounds sketchy to me.

So do you have to let her participate next time?
