I just had my de-virginizing cake moment.

My Employee, as I was walking in the door from grabbing lunch: This customer is here to pick up her cake, and I can't find it.
Customer: icon_lol.gif
Me: ( icon_eek.gif ) icon_smile.gif ("Oh SHI* oh SHI* oh SHI*!!!!!)

Customer: icon_lol.gif
Me: ( icon_eek.gif ) icon_smile.gif

Customer: icon_lol.gif
Me: ( icon_eek.gif ) icon_smile.gif

Me: icon_smile.gif Oh yes! Let me grab it. Oh NO! I left it in the fridge at home! Can I bring it to you?

Customer: icon_lol.gif Oh...I'm headed to the birthday lunch now. (It's 1:10, per the order I took she needed the cake by noon)

Me: ( icon_eek.gif ) icon_smile.gif Okay; you are headed there now? Can I meet you there? I will be about 15 minutes behind you. (HURRY UP AND DECIDE...I HAVE TO PULL A CAKE OUT OF MY A$$ AND YOU ARE MAKING ME LOSE TIME!!!)

Employee: icon_cool.gif No problem; I can run to your house and grab it.
Me: ( icon_eek.gif ) icon_smile.gif No...there is a liability issue with you on the clock and driving.

Employee: icon_confused.gif What? (He is dating my daughter and is close family friend) No there's not...
Me: ( icon_eek.gif ) icon_smile.gif Yes, yes there is. Can you finish ringing her up so I can prepare to leave the store?
Employee: icon_cool.gif But...
Me: ( icon_eek.gif) icon_smile.gif NOW?

Customer: icon_lol.gif

Customer: icon_lol.gif And can I buy a gift certificate for her? What should it say? (Goes on for five full minutes)

Me: ( icon_eek.gif) icon_smile.gif (GET OUT OF HERE! YOU ARE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE BAVARIAN CREAM FILLING AND THE ONLY FREEZER WITH A CHOCOLATE CAKE IN IT! I HAVE TO THAW IT, TRIM IT TO THE RIGHT SIZE, FILL IT, AND DECORATE IT IN TEN MINUTES!!! AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!)

Customer: icon_lol.gif
Me: (icon_eek.gif) icon_smile.gif
Employee: icon_cool.gif

Me: (icon_eek.gif) icon_smile.gif (Go into kitchen to hyperventilate)
Employee: icon_cool.gif (Follows me) Why can't I just...
Me: icon_eek.gif THERE IS NO CAKE!!! I FORGOT IT!!! GET HER THE HE** OUT OF HERE SO I CAN PULL ONE OUT OF MY A$$!!!!!!
Employee: icon_eek.gif
Me: icon_eek.gif

Customer: icon_lol.gif (she was kinda clueless)

Customer: leaves...

Me: icon_eek.gif
Employee: icon_eek.gif

Me: icon_eek.gif whips out 6 inch chocolate from fridge, 8 inch choc from freezer, tortes 6 inch and fills with choc bav cream, trims 8 inch to size, puts it on top, ices in chocolate, dusts premade white package bow with yellow luster dust, finds yellow and purple daisy from box of pre-done "save my a$$" decorations, puts bow on, makes daisy centers, puts those on, tints while icing and writes on cake, slaps it all in box and hands it to employee, who then proceeds to make a 15 minute drive in 9 minutes.

Me: icon_eek.gif
Employee: icon_cool.gif

Customer: icon_lol.gif

Dang...hope the cake tasted fresh. Where is the barf emoticon???

I'd love to see a picture of it! ....like you had the time to take one, but still! icon_wink.gif

Dang, I am STILL icon_eek.gif !

It wasn't exactly what she ordered...I had a devil's food cake in fridge and she had asked for german chocolate with "choc filling and choc icing". She didn't seem to care at the time what it even looked like, so I guess that's good.

Incidentally, I found her order safe and sound...in the wrong book and behind a paper...
