I was going to do another before and after picture for today's post but I needed to throw in a rant first.
When I got to work Thursday morning, this was sitting on my table.
I make these cakes that are a 1/4 sheet cake cut in thirds. A nice size for 2 or three people. I do different flavors and obviously this one was strawberry. It's not totally damaged just the icing is smeared all over the top of the lid. I did transfer it to a clean container and put it back out.
Even though I didn't have to throw it away the point her is, why was that mother or father not paying attention to that kid. My first thought was that the small mother needs to pay for the item that her kid damaged. Seriously people need to pay attention to what their kids are doing. To make this whole thing worse, when I talked to the girl who left me the note she said she didn't even see an adult around. She heard the cake drop on the floor and when she looked out she saw the boy running away. REALLY, do people think that a grocery store is a great big giant play ground for their unruly children? My manager said that he wants to put leashes by the front door for people to put on their kids. What happened to the good old days when the policy was "you break it, you bought it"?
