It had everyone going for quite awhile. True or not, it was a dang good thread! icon_biggrin.gif





I remembr that thread and that story REALLY got outrageuos. I think I'm with you here. The op turns around and gives the cake to her granddaughter for her birthday?! It so happened to be her birthday?!? icon_rolleyes.gif hmmm...

I know I shouldn't have said that but she was already being so rude to me! Anyway while I am making her another cake she calls me a bitch and a tramp multiple times loud enough for the whole store to hear, and told me I would be standing in the unemployment line while her party goes on.

Sorry I got off on a long tangent just to say I can see that happening.






I would have been standing in the unemployment line, cause I would have been fired for going off on that bi$@#!

Me too! the only reason people behave like that is because no-one ever stands up to them and tells them to put a sock in it!

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif One time I was working at a drycleaners and a woman came in and wanted her dress redone. The only problem was, she was wearing it. So I told her to bring it in the next time she came and we'd send it for a do-over. Instead she went home and changed and took it to our main location and said I had told her she couldn't have it redone. The owner called and screamed at me until I told him that she had come in wearing it and how on earth was I supposed to send it when she had it on? (Sometimes he forgot that I wasn't one of the illegals he had working in the plant and he couldn't talk to me that way) And then when the dress came back, I used my seam ripper and removed every 3rd stitch from the back seam of the dress. I could tell from the stress marks in the fabric that it was too tight across the butt and the seam would give way when she bent over icon_biggrin.gif

COME ON! This is taking it too far! The OP should not be made to feel that she has to prove anything. She's not on trial here! She's part of the CC family and is entitled to some respect and empathy. What she experienced was traumatic to say the least!

NOPE....not at all...That last one was a MESS and one of the biggest balls of crap I have ever read about and it went on and on and on. Honestly, when I saw the title of this post, that previous post was the first thing I thought about before I ever read a word of this one! Hope it turns out to not be a HOAX...I mean really, who has time to come up with this sort of game?? Remember the pics from the last one was a HOAX too! She found it on line!!!!!!!

I think the moral to the story is we have all dealt with people like this, I work in hospitality - dont get me started! OP please dont get upset, this is turning out to be quite funny and it makes us all feel better Texas Rose when the baddies get their cumm -up-ence! This is the most I've laughed all day! icon_lol.gif

what a terrible woman!!!!! how RUDE and just low class. I really hope she does not get a refund. She should be paying you in FULL. her daughter is the one whomade the order and her daughter should be the one who says wether she likes it or not. like a supermarket cake is going to be BETTER than what you took in?? I think its buyers remorse. Im so sorry you had to go through this, I havent been through anything like this yet and I have no idea how I'd handle it. Big hugs your way.

Sorry so many of you were taken for a ride previously. It is not fair to the OP to bring your baggage into her post. How would you feel? There is nothing wrong in asking for a pic so we can help assess the situation with her. She said she would do so asap. It was the beginning of the undertones about the birthday party that were out of line. This is how the snowball gets rolling in some threads and sweet, kind people get their feelings hurt all to heck!

1dessertdiva, sorry you had to deal with such a low class MOB. I'm even sorrier that now you face such scrutiny here because of things that others have did in the past. Sometimes lately in here it's like throwing yourself to the wolves. thumbsdown.gif

What a crazy woman...Even if the cake wasn't exactly what the Bride ordered or wanted(In the Mom's eyes) I would have wanted a cake anyway...I mean a cake is better than nothing....Unless it was totally hideous which I doubt.Some people are just over the top.

hmmmm...

and is anyone with me on the concept that all these reality shows are just adding fuel to the fire of totally outrageous self-absorbed behavior?

even if this should turn out to be an exaggeration, I still could see it happening.

I agree Doug.....It seems like nowadays the more spoiled you are or behave badly the more people are interested in watching or paying the people to do it.

Doug and Kiddiekakes--I'm with ya! I've thought that a few times now. Shows like Bridezilla especially seem to have bride's thinking it's okay to act like a spoiled, selfish brat because it's "my day!!!" It's ridiculous!!

Reality TV almost always rewards very bad behavior. And some viewers feel the need to copy it. Oh, the drama of it all. The lack of self-censorship and discretion, the outrageous demands, the tantrums.

Play nice.

I did tell her that she needed to stop talking to me that way, and when she didn't I told her that I would not make her another cake. I'm not going to act like such a fool, but I did stand up for myself somewhat. Unfortunately, the assistant manager used to work in a bakery and he made her cake, while she stood there yelling the whole time. I stayed in the back until she left because I was afraid she would follow me if I left. If the store manager had been there he would have told her to get out or he was calling the police, and he did apologize to me when he heard about it.

Oh my... stories like that make me so happy I don't work retail anymore!

I've always secretly wished that there was a gossip magazine, except with regular people in it. If they knew that people were aware of their bad behavior and got to see how they were acting, they might think about changing it.

Hi All,

Thanks for the empathy! I feel the need to clarify a few things... it will not be detailed as I am on my way back to work. I own a Catering and cake design co., I am currently on day 33 of NO days off. Friday I got 3 hours sleep then put in a long horrify day on the day the event happened. I would not waste my time posting something that was not true, as I value my down time, I was just in total shock because I have heard of things like this but new it would always happen to the "Other guy".
Yes it was my grand daughters bday on 8-2-09 the wedding was 8-01-09, I made my GD an oreo cookies and cream cake that looked like a giant cookie, I also had a wedding the morning of my gd's bday but paid my staff to take over so I would not miss yet another bday, my assistant suggested since the cake was just going to go to the mission wouldn't it be better to give it to her? ( why on earth would I lie about that? )I am saddened by the fact that people on this forum (some) would be so quick to take a cynical view of a post I made, I would not waste my time or yours , and my information is visible to all, including my business info, I have been a member for 3 years and hardly post because I am busy working, I would not waste the time to tarnish the name of my business and embaress myself.
Thank you for listening

Sorry this happened to you. I'd love to see pictures though.

You knwo what would have been funny.... Since the MOB paid for half the cake. Cut the cake right down the center!!! You would have been taking the half that she paid for back and left the other hald there for the bride!!!

I would love to see the cake she refused to have at her daughters wedding.
I mean how rude of the mom, it blows my mind to know that there are people out there like that.

Good for you to take the time that you have so little of, to professionally defend yourself and state your case. And happy birthday to your GD!

I am curious to know which previos post was a hoax. There was one a couple of months back that went on throughout the weekend. It was like a damn soap opera but I too was a follower! If anyone could tell me the short version, or just the topic, I'd appreciate it!

I think I'd have marched myself over to the brides' changing room and told her what was going on...I wouldn't want to be the one responsible for ruining her day when she found out her dream cake was replaced with krogers' frozen sheet cakes...

I am sorry this happened to you!

Is your company Diva Catering and Cakes?
In Salem, Oregon?
I would love to see more of the wedding cakes like on your website! I don't see any in your photos here. icon_biggrin.gif

Sorry if I have the wrong company.
