read this earlier today thought you could put a limit on it so was surprised that she hadn't. seems like she is blamig groupon but is her fault for not limiting it, she set the deal so its a lesson to everyone to read the deals carefully before you sign up to anything.

It's also likely the last 100,000 cupcakes she made didn't get her best effort, so she probably won't even benefit from repeat business from new customers. Live and learn...or think ahead of time.

What was that bakery owner thinking!?!?!?! And where was the Groupon rep? They're supposed to help the owner figure out a good deal. That deal was doomed from the beginning. These businesses need to run numbers before ever signing up. Even a 75% discount with a limit would have been disasterous.

From the sounds of what I read, she basically understood that it was her own fault. But it's truly one of the stupidest moves, ever!
