I know this would be a tragic day if you’ve spent hours planning and prepping for this party, but I have some questions.
Here’s the story. Marsy Flores from Pasadena Texas said she placed an order for a two-tier cake from Walmart for her daughter’s high school graduation party. When Flores went to pick up the cake, the workers couldn’t find it so they gave her a free sheet cake instead. But, her daughter was humiliated when she cut into the cake in front of family and friends only to reveal that it was a large rectangle of styrofoam covered in ornate frosting.
On May 31st, Nellie Flores, Marsy’s sister, posted a video of the fake cake to her Facebook, blasting Walmart for their bad customer service. Walmart has apologized to the family and gave them a 60-dollar gift card for the incident.
Question one: Did the person at the store really think they could grab the display cake? They didn’t know it was styrofoam?
Question two: So nobody involved… meaning the person behind the counter, the cake decorator, or the customer thought “this feels a little light?”
Question three: On Bastille Day…. Do you think that Marie Antoinette thought she was offering styrofoam cake to the peasants? (just kidding)
Question four: Did they really think they could have their cake and eat it too?
