A few weeks ago I had a closing shift at Hannafords on Shelburn rd. And because they are doing a remodel right now the only real job concerning cakes that i have to worry about at night is taking special orders and writing on cakes for customers…
It was around 7:30 and this guy comes up and starts looking at some of the cakes i had decorated earlier in the day. Then he starts looking through the book of decopac designs… So i ask him if there’s anything i can help with.
He enthusiastically says “yes” and comes over to the opening of the cake case and the sales floor. I ask if he wants to make a special order… he says “oh yes.” So i get a special order form and bring it over.
I ask all of the draining questions like what kind of frosting.. what size.. what flavor cake… blah blah blah.. and thats cool he isn’t annoying me yet… Then i ask if there are any special colors, or decorations that he wants me to put on the cake…. thats when i realize he’s a complete nut case.
“Actually,” he says, What i really want is for you to make a cake shaped like my penis.
Yes, he said penis.
Now I’m freaked out… I explain to him that i can’t do that. . . but he didn’t understand.. he thought that i meant i couldn’t physically do it.. like it was too hard for me..
so he reaches into his pocket and pulls out a picture and says: “It’s really not that hard, here, look!, here’s a picture for you to go by”… OH MY GOD!!!!! what is wrong with this guy??? I’m super freaked out now, and try to explain to him that i cannot fufill his request… and now he gets pissed off… saying that my customer service really blows (no pun intended) and I tell him he is more than welcome to go speak to the overnight operations manager who can explain to him in more detail as to why I cannot make a cake shaped like his dick….
So please people… I am more than willing to make you a cake! I love doing it!!! But please !!!! don’t come in and ask me to make a cake shaped like your dick… thats just wrong!!
