Bakery Transcriptionist Needed On Aisle 7

I received this in an email. The assumed conversation went something like this:

Walmart worker: Bakery
Customer: I need to order a cake for a going away party.
Walmart worker: What do you want on it?
Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne,' underneath that, 'We will miss you'.

Below is what she received when she picked up the cake.

This would never have happened at Target.

I weep...

On a positive note though, the writing IS stellar.

Deb said...

That is so funny. I hope the recipient of the cake thought it was as funny as I do. Probably not.

Deb said...

oh my.

yet another reason to hate wal-mart. my list is getting longggggggggg.

Ronda's Rants said...

Neat handwriting...
I do wonder what the woman on the phone sounded like though...maybe they spoke the same language...a little laxed with the constanants!

asthmagirl said...

That's so sad! But the handwriting IS beautiful!

Sheri said...

You've got to submit this to the Cake Wrecks blog!! They LOVE stuff like this!

Kristen Hermanny said...

This is why we tell our children not to use drugs. UGG!
I wouldn't get bakery from Walmart anyway. My Aunt got her nails done at her local Walmart and the results were the same!!!

You would think this was written by someone that we know....you know who I am talking about!

Rhonda said...

Oh, I love stupid people! They keep life interesting!

Well, it COULD be used as a funeral cake. You know, "underneath that" as in "six feet under that" but I can totally see how it would have happened and, NO, I've never worked at Walmart but I did do a lot of witness dictation in the arson bureau and I was told to type EVERYTHING the witnesses said. I had a lot of "uhhhhhhhhh" and "mmmmmmmmmmmmm" in my court transcriptions.

Annie said...

This must go to cake wrecks!

Tiffany said...

Does Target even have a bakery? We don't have any of the fancy targets down here. No food in ours. What did you expect? I'm in the freaking sticks!

Mary Moore said...

That is almost too good to be true!

♥georgie♥ said...

LMAO...that would so happen to me

stalkermom said...

I thought the same thing...nice handwriting!

TexasRed said...

That is hilarious!

Shelley said...

OHGosh. Is that not the funniest thing you have ever seen? You seriously should think about sending that to Jay Leno show, he would have a field day with it.
I am still laughing, I'll have to keep that story on file when I'm feeling down just pull it out.

Marilyn said...

I wonder if it's a choklat or a banila cake...

Tenakim said...

I've seen this one before. Does your Target have a bakery???Oohlala!

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

That is so funny! How is that not common sense when writing it up?

The Mom said...

OMG, how sad, how very sad.

Sandi said...

Where do find these things? You crack me up!

Doublebanker said...

At least they got the words right...the ones probably said at least.

Wunderwoman said...

That is too funny! I wish I had a Target closer, I hate WalMart

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

Did you submit that to cake wrecks? Cause that would be a sure-fire winner!

Bee and Rose said...

Hee hee hee! Just found your bloggy and now you're stuck with me!

This happened to me last week for my daughter's birthday! I asked the bakery to leave the top of the cake plain. I explained I would do the decorating. Bakery lady wrote this on her sheet "(nothing on top..plain)" And that's what the dumb cake decorator wrote on my 6yr olds cake! Needless to say we were offered a years supply of baked goods and a new cake. Dummies! (I wish I would've taken a picture of it for Cake Wrecks!) You have to send this pic their way!

Elaine A. said...

That is friggin' hilarious!!! I totally want a cake like that!! Maybe for the blogger dinner? HA HA HA!

Soxy Deb said...

Bwaaahaaahaaaaaa!!!!

If all else fails for me in the Med Trans field, I'll go into Bakery Trans. I can do it. I know I can.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

She must've been half sleep when she was decorating the cake. She missed the H in underneat. LOL

Michelle said...

Oh my gosh!!! Is that for real?? Could someone actually be that dense? I like Reasors cakes. I have had good luck with them. All I can say is I hope no one paid for that. lol

Justine said...

OMG, I wonder if this is true! That is tooooooooo funny. But hey, that's what you get for ordering a cake from Wal-Mart. It might be one of my favorite stores, but you'll never catch me buying baked goods from them!

Justine :o )

Jenni Jiggety said...

Bahahahahahahahahahah! Classic!

Swirl Girl said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

sounds like a cake Amelia Bedelia would have made...not your sister, but the one of literary fame!

♥Trina♥ said...

I swear I have had some students in the past who would've done that!

Smores for Breakfast said...

DYING! I LOOOOVE THAT! YOU JUST MADE MY DAY!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I've said it before & I'll say it again-

Rocket scientists do not work at Wal-Mart!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

QueenofPlanetHotflash said...

HHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaa
I thought only crap like that happened to me, One year for my daughter's birthday I had to take her cake back three times because they spelled her name wrong even though I wrote it down PRINTED it and they still spelled it wrong

Brenda said...

I just can't past the ugly cake colors - who wants a brown, yellow & orange flowers???
