About To Get A Slice Of Life

Customer: “Hi, I’d like to get this cake, please.” *points at one*

Me: “Sure, would you like anything written on it?”

Customer: “Yeah, can you put ‘Happy Birthday Daddy’?”

Me: “Daddy?”

Customer: “Yes, please.”

Me: “Sure, just one second.”

(I get my icing bags.)

Me: “Okay, so that was ‘Happy Birthday Daddy’?”

Customer: “Actually… could you just put ‘Happy Birthday Tom’?”

Me: “‘Tom’?”

Customer: “Yeah…” *pauses* “…I’ll tell him eventually.”

(My heart melts. I don’t know how to react, so I just write on her cake and send her on her way. I never did find out how things turned out for that woman, but I wish her all the best.)
