I booked several weeks in advance to have this company assist with my baby shower. and I was confirmed. At the time I was 8 months pregnant which is why I needed the extra help for the bar and also booked a waiter. I booked the bartender and waiter for 8 hours each for that day. I didn’t want to have any stress about food service or beverage service during the baby shower. Weeks after I was confirmed, i received a pending PayPal refund from the company. They didn’t bother at all to let me know they could not do the event directly. I wrote to them on thumbtack regarding their lack of notice. I received no response. I had to go through hours of panic and struggle trying to fill the positions because everything was already booked up for the shower weekend. Really no consideration for the client. In the end my water ended up breaking 2 days before the shower. But the stress in trying to try to re organize everything did not help my pregnancy.
