I received this in an email today and I'm still laughing! Sorry if this has been posted before but I just had to share icon_lol.gif

I just hope I never do anything like this (like at the end of a busy week when I'm really tired lol!!)

The email read as follows (btw Woolworths is an Australian supermarket):

Okay ... so this is how I imagine this conversation went:

Woolworths Employee: 'Hello 'dis be Woolworths, how can I help you?'

Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'

Woolworths Employee: 'What you want on the cake?'

Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' underneath that 'We will miss you'.

Yes, this is pretty popular (I think the store where it was done changes...I believe when I read it, it was Wal-Mart)

This is the cake that inspired the site cakewrecks.com

Woolworths! Wow! I haven't heard that name in FOREVER! As a kid, I LOVED going there! A kid could get the most cool stuff for a buck there! Simple...happy memories...aaaaaaaaah to go back would be grand....just until my dollar was spent anyway...

I thought Woolworth was a 'dime store' type of place.

Aha. Australia. That explains it.

Woolworths in the states is a 'dime store'.

'Woolies' in the UK has just gone belly-up icon_sad.gif . V. sad. Where does this generation go to steal its pick'n'mix candy?

I used to work at the counter at Woolworth's when I was a teenager. It was a pretty cool job. 20 seats, me, a grill, and a cash register lol. I thought I was going to die when I got done on a Saturday.

It was fun icon_smile.gif
