Cake is not an Upside down cake

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I had the most aweful cake disaster. I was tired and had just spent half the night decorating a birthday cake for a friend. I put it in the box and the following day someone was to deliver it as a suprise birthday cake. The person who picked it up from my house decided to make it an upside down cake she actually picked up the box with the cake in it and for some unknown reason decided to overturn it!.
Well the cake did get their just in bits and pieces. icon_evil.gif

Good grief! So now I guess cake boxes need "this side up" stickers all over them icon_eek.gif! I'm so sorry about all your hard work.

I can believe it!! I worked in a pizza restaurant many moons ago, and this one guy would come in to pick his pizza up, and everytime would turn the box sideways and carry it under his arm !! icon_confused.gifdunce.gificon_eek.gif

Are you kidding? I mean, I know people at ARC that wouldn't even be that... challenged. I am embarrassed FOR that person because they don't have the sense God gave a goat.

icon_surprised.gif What is wrong with people? I know I'm anal, but I have a fit if hubby picks up a pizza and it leans a little bit. I don't even like setting it on the seat because of the slight angle, the cheese could run more to one side. Man, I DO have issues. icon_redface.gif

or that could be a good thing. said to Hubby: You get "that" side (the thin side) and I get THIS side (side all the cheese ran too.

re original post....

alternate theory to not liking the recipient -- the delivery dolt also makes cakes and was miffed she didn't get to make the cake.

This reminds of the cashier at my local grocer who took the key lime pie I bought and put it in the bag sideways! What a moron. Yes he got an earful, and so did the front end manager.... and the customer service desk person. I am remorseful now....it was obviously a PMS day or something.

Just why did that person decide to take a cake box and turn it upside down? I am thinking some passive aggressive behavior here. I think Doug's theory is right.

Did they do that on purpose? What was the story behind it? Some people make me laugh (or cry like in this situation)

If you killed this person, no court would convict you of more than justifiable homicide! I get that that's a little harsh, but seriously...!

Okay......am I the only one wondering this question...?? What was your reaction to this? What did you say to them? I don't think I could have contained the words that would have came out of my mouth...it would have been some serious "word vomit"! icon_lol.gif

I actually do write "this side up" on some cake boxes. Never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.
