I work in a grocery store bakery. A man calls about noon today wanting a cake for 5:30 TODAY. He says he needs to feed about 35 people. Ok 1/2 sheet. He wants to know if I can put a masonic symbol on it. I tell him I don't know what that looks like. He says he'll bring a picture by at lunch and I say ok but I won't say that I can do it until I see it. (my internet access at work is very limited so I can't look online, plus I say that I can't do a lot of stuff that I really can because I am unwilling to spend the time to do it there)

So order is taken and he says he'll come by with a pic in a little bit. By the way, how much is this gonna run me? I tell him 22.99. I didn't tell him that's $2.00 off because Thursday is cake day. He got disgruntled and said well just forget about it and hung up!

Really?? $23 is astonishingly too high for 35 people? I'd hate for him to try to get a non grocery store cake.

He's one of those people who have never seen a cake other than Walmart's.

yes. yes he was.

had a guy come in and asked about pineapple upside down cake. After telling him I don't stock cakes and they are to-order-only, I told him it was $60-$80 depending on size. His eyes popped open and said he was only looking to spend ten bucks! I said, "Sir, I have more than 10 bucks in the pineapple that's between the 4 layers of cake. I dont' do grocery store cakes. You might TRY walmart, but I don't think they do pineapple upside downs."
