The Paid Cake Is A Lie

, , , | Right | February 14, 2019

I work in the bakery department of a large supermarket. A customer presents me with a cake, which she asks me to put icing on for her.

I go to present the cake back to the customer when she asks me to write, “Paid for,” on the side of the box. I begin to explain I can’t do this without her showing me a valid receipt, but the shop fire alarm begins to ring and we’re all made to evacuate the building. We get back inside ten minutes later to find the woman standing in the exact same spot. We have no idea how security missed her!

She continues to insist she’s already paid for the cake, and after what seems like an eternity of arguing, she storms away down to the bottom of the aisle.

I then watch her pull a pen out her bag and write, “Paid for,” on the box herself. To this day, I have no idea if she successfully got through checkouts with her handiwork.
