So I have a tasting appointment scheduled this morning. Right before they are due they call to say they will be 10 minutes late since they are stopping at McDonald's. icon_confused.gif

Ten minutes later they show up and they are both....


wait for it...








HIGH!

Oh yes. As kites.

Well, it at least it explains why they had to eat something right away at McD's...... when those post-pot munchies hit ya, you gotta eat NOW! (uh .... I mean .... er .... so I'm told! icon_rolleyes.gif )

Oh, doesn't this just warm your heart icon_eek.gif

2 sick puppies getting married and probably destined to add to the contaminated gene pool (if they haven't already done so..................)

Truth be told, I'd have sent them on their way and told them to come back when they're competent to sign a contract! I wouldn't have allowed them in the door or wasted (pun intended) my time even talking to them--they won't remember much clearly, anyway.

Drug use/alcohol abuse of any kind makes me sick. It's bad enough when those doing it hide behind closed doors --at least they can't kill anyone else while they're damaging themselves--but this burgeoning attitude that it's OK, that it doesn't need to be hidden, and that they're out driving like that............... icon_mad.gif

Wanna' bet they do the same thing on their wedding day--and probably trash the cake during the cutting? What a pair of winners................

So do tell...what did you do? Where you able to do the tasting?? Did they fall face first into the samples?

Talk about an easy booking!

After they devour the cake samples and dry mouth starts to set in from the weed and the rapid cake consumption, you slide the contract in front of them and tell them in no uncertain terms... "You want the milk, you sign the contract". icon_wink.gif

This was hysterical!!

Well, when they first came in I though they were acting a little strange, but that's kind of their personalities, so it didn't really hit me what was going on until about 10 minutes into the consultation. By that time they were half-way thru the samples. It's the first time I've ever had anyone eat my cake and not say anything about it. Not "it tastes great or I don't like this flavor." Nothing!

At any rate, I did mention that they didn't really look like they felt up to finishing our meeting and asked if they wanted to reschedule. This was after the bride kept talking about her first marriage. Even showed me the picture of the cake on her phone! So that I could "get a sense of her style." Groom just sat there, eating cake.

Finally after about 1/2 hour she says she will send me a sketch me of what she wants the cake to look like. Tells me she left the checkbook at home. I tell her that's fine, but I don't hold a date without a deposit. Suddenly she realizes the checkbook is in her purse in the car icon_cool.gif.

Signs the contract, writes me a check and they leave. I am wondering what's going to happen when I send them their typed contract in the mail.

Don't tell me, let me guess........... they ordered the "special" hash brownie flavor cake icon_lol.gif

All kidding aside, this is very sad. I can just imagine what they'll be like on the "big" day. I'd deposit that check right away, I hope you added on a special fee for having to put up with them in that state!

Oh goodness, make sure that check clears! icon_smile.gif They might change their mind on spending the money on cake if their stash runs out!

LOL. Sounds like it would fit the couple well!!

LOL... I'm picturing a cake with brush embroidery weed leaves all over it... Now THAT would be a unique wedding cake and likely to be recreated multiple times over... Or, you could suggest the above mentioned cake with that pattern cascading down...

Yea... Sounds like a couple that shouldn't be allowed to procreate...

I don't know if I should be laughing at this couple or feel sorry for them...I think I'm just horrified they drove high! It's one thing to do that sort of thing in the privacy of your own home, but it's another thing to subject others to it!

That's just horrible!

Reminds me of Friends though, where Monica is doing a tasting for a guy opening a restaurant. He shows up high and proceeds to eat everything he can find.

Are you absolutely sure they were high? I mean, sometimes people can just be spacey flakes.

I know, I know... but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.

sallene - I thought of the same Friends episode when I started reading this!!! Jon Lovitz was a hoot! "Tartlets...tartlets...tartlets...word has lost all meaning."

I definetly wouldn't know what to do if I had a couple like this. Geesh!


---I also loved that episode of Friends!!-----

Deposit that check at Their bank ! What a waste o cae, you could have given them scraps, or heck, twinkies they'd been happy!

Wing-Ding Posted 17 Feb 2009 , 11:37pm

Wow! Deposit the check now!!

As a joke on their wedding day, put a couple of Twinkies and McDonald's apple pies around their cake too.

ok, maybe not, but it would be funny!
