A Photo Of A Supermarket Birthday Cake Is Going Viral For The Best Reason
In the wake of Black Friday, let's reflect upon a brief moment when consumers were not the scourges of the Earth.
Lisa Sarber Aldrich stopped into her local Meijer, a Midwestern grocery chain, to pick up a birthday cake.
When Aldrich asked the woman working at the supermarket's bakery to write on the cake, the woman agreed and, after a bit of a wait, handed Aldrich the finished product below.
In a post on Facebook, Aldrich recalled the interaction with the woman. She wrote,
Meijer employees caught a glimpse of the cake at self-checkout and alerted a manager.
In the three days since posting her story, the cake customer saw her post shared over 94,000 times.
As for the bakery employee, Aldrich assured people she was not reprimanded.
In a comment on the post, she added,
Die-hard deal finders may want to remember this tale each time they consider clotheslining fellow shoppers over toasters on clearance.
