Deadbeat

I spent the entire day today waiting around to see if I would hear from a mom in my troop. She still has cookie funds outstanding. Almost $600 in cookie funds. I have to make the deposit tomorrow. I've tried calling her several times. I've emailed her 3 times this weekend alone. This is not counting the reminder email earlier this week that money was due Wednesday and one on Thursday where I said I had to get the money from her I'm free all day Friday and Saturday and Sunday and just give me a time dammit! I did not hear from her. Her phone is temporarily out of service. I've emailed her 3 times since Saturday... each email getting more desperate. I've never had to turn in a deadbeat cookie mom before. I don't like this feeling. ALSO She wasn't supposed to be my cookie mom because I hadn't turned her paperwork in when the cookie sales started and yet I trusted her to be it. Now my ass could be on the line since I don't have the necessary paperwork for her. Clearly I have learned a lesson here. Oh so many lessons here.

(Of course I could hear from her tomorrow and I could end up not having to turn her in as a deadbeat, but I'm no longer holding my breath.)
