I'm about to abdicate from working the counter/answering the phone - I love to just hide in the back and bake.

Its not only brides, most people just expect us to give everything out for free, its ridiculous. I think most people dont understand how much work and time consuming it is to make a cake.

Wow!

Thats crazy !  Next time say

"for no additional charge I have personally autographed the bottom of your cake"

or

"as a way of saying thanks I have put your name into our drawing for a free cake... I will call you if you win!"

lol

Oh, totally. I'll take pictures as evidence. I mean, a Van Gogh painting didn't mean much without his signature, right?!

Okay, starting to sound a tad arrogant, here! But that is TOOOOO funny!!

I used to work retail, and so did my roommate. She came home from work one day, stomped into the apartment and yelled "The general public sucks!" I totally understood what she meant.

Not trying to derail this thread, but I worked at an upscale department store in college.  In the hosiery department.  I had an impeccably dressed older lady, about 70, come up behind the counter, turn around, lift her skirt up, and ask me to read the tag of the panty hose she had on, so she could buy some more. :shock:

Liz, that's nothing, I also used to work retail and on day I was working in the fitting room and when I checked on one older woman I got pulled into the dressing room to help her change into a few other outfits.  It was so uncomfortable.

Oh, I can top both of those stories...I also used to work at a gynecologist's office doing insurance and reception, and at one point a couple of the nurses were going to be on vacation and they asked me if I would take their place on a couple of shifts if they were short staffed.  Just getting the patients into the room, giving them the gowns, taking the blood pressure and that was it. No problem, no blood, nothing invasive.

 

But I guess the doctor was under the impression that I wanted to train to be a nurse. so she called me into an exam room and there was a patient up on the table with legs up, speculum, in, oh my God. She then proceeded to tell me to LOOK AT THIS WOMAN'S CERVIX to see where the bad spot was. I had to go along with it because I didn't want to freak this poor woman out while she was up on the table, so I was treated to the sight of a cervix that needed a biopsy.

 

After that I longed for my good old retail days, when the only thing that would happen was someone changing their clothes in the middle of the sales floor or using the fitting rooms at their private toilet.

The immature part of me really wonders what possesses a man to go into gynecology. They aren't all twenty something year olds. The patients, that is.
