Okay so this is how I imagine the conversation went:
Walmart Employee: ‘Hello. This’ Walmarts, how can I help you?’
Customer: ‘ I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.’
Walmart Employee: ‘What you want on the cake?’
Customer: ‘Best Wishes Suzanne’ and underneath that ‘We will miss you’.
Hilarious AND true – this actually happened. Hard to get good help anymore!
So I ordered a birthday cake for my friend Libby. Just called up the Harris Teeter grocery store and asked for a basic sheet cake with flowers and the words: “Happy Birthday Libby.”
When I got to the store to pick it up, I was interrogated with no mercy.
Me: “My name is Teri Saylor and I would like to pick up a birthday cake.”
Cake Clerk: “What does the cake look like?” Me: “It has white icing and it says Happy Birthday Libby.”
Cake Clerk: “What else is on the cake?
Me: “I don’t know…flowers, I guess, and it says “Happy Birthday Libby.”
Cake Clerk: “What color are the flowers?”
Me: “I don’t know. The cake is a birthday cake and it says “Happy Birthday Libby.”
Cake Clerk: “What color are the letters?”
Me: (Getting very frustrated now). “I don’t know. All I know is my name is Teri Saylor and I ordered a cake that says Happy Birthday Libby.”
Cake Clerk: How do I know you are who you say you are?
Me: “Because I ordered a cake that says Happy Birthday Libby, and if you have a cake back there that says Happy Birthday Libby, it’s mine!”
Cake Clerk: “Yeah I got your cake. It’s just that you sounded taller on the phone.”
