Note to Idiot

Dear checkout girl at Kroger,

I imagine your job is really taxing and all, but I'm not sure how much harder it would have been for you to just pick up the little laser gun to scan my dozen cupcakes instead of shaking the shit out of them over the scanner. I realize that it would be hard to click the button ten times, one for each dozen, or maybe even just scan one and then type in the number "10" into the register.

No, you must have gotten some joy out of tossing around those now lovingly squished cupcakes.

Now I know why you only get paid minimum wage.

Imagining you must have gone to public school 'round here,
MJ

Note to Self: I had ten dozen cupcakes made for our monthly birthday shindig at work, and they were all perfect and pretty... at least until this girl got a hold of them. I ended up serving a bunch of cupcakes that had been turned over in their boxes with the frosting thrown off and sprinkles all over the place... idiot.

People who ruin dessert should be publicly flogged.

I like Helen's idea of flogging...and the store should refund your money.

Oh, I HATE that!

Where do they get these people who have absolutely no common sense? I do think you deserve a refund for that - you had them MADE for this event and she ruined them. The store should train their employees to handle those things better because it does affect their image so they should care. sheesh.

She ruined perfectly good cupcakes and yet you let her LIVE? MJ, you are the model of restraint.

OH man don't you hate it when that happens? You should have told her you needed new ones now that she screwed them up. I would have gone to the manager and had him replace them and comp them too. That's just not okay.

Did you know they were ruined at the store, or did you find out after you opened them at work?

I would have demanded a refund.

All - Man, I think you guys are more mad about this than I was LOL. Being the passive person I am (I know... Me? Passive? *gasp*), I didn't do anything about it but stare at her in complete disgust.

It was only a dozen that she shook about, but it did stink. I really think she was just an idiot and doesn't understand the delicate aesthetic intricacies of cupcake frosting. I have always assumed it was an innate instinct, but alas, apparently it's not.

I'll know better next time to go through the self-check line.

She should be frosted after being flogged. That would add a little humilation to the pain.
