Piece Of Cake

| Hillsboro, OR, USA | Food & Drink

(Note that I am not the cake decorator at my store. I have no clue how to build or frost cakes. On this particular day, I am working alone.)

Customer: “Is this ice cream cake vanilla flavored?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. That’s vanilla ice cream on white cake.”

Customer: “What do you mean, white cake?”

Me: “I mean, there’s white cake inside.”

Customer: “There’s cake in there?”

Me: “Um, well, yes. It is an ice cream cake. It’s made with ice cream and cake.”

Customer: *looking distressed* “Oh…but, I don’t want cake! I want all ice cream! Can you take the cake part out for me?”

Me: “Um, well, I’m not the decorator, so I don’t think–”

Customer: “Just take out the cake part, frost it really quick, and I’ll buy it like that. It can’t be that hard.”

Me: “So…you want me to scrape all the frosting off, take out the cake and throw it out, and then re-frost it for you real quick?”

Customer: “Is that not possible?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, but no.”

(She ends up buying the cake anyway, but complains under her breath the entire process.)
