My son is having brain surgery on Nov 14th. I posted a note on both my website and FB page stating I was unable to take orders from Nov 10th-25th.
Woman calls me about a 3 tier cake she wants for her daughter's birthday party. The date she needs it? Nov 17th.
Me: I'm sorry but I am unable to take any orders for that date.
Her: Are you sure?
Me: Yes, I'm sure.
Her: Really? You can't fit it in your schedule?
Me: No, I really can't. My son is having brain surgery on the 14th. I will be at the hospital with him.
Her: Well could your husband or somebody stay with him and then you could make the cake?
Her: Well won't he be sleeping most of the time anyway? He won't even know if you are there or not.
Me: I'm sorry I can't help you.
And then I hung up the phone before she could say something else. She proceeded to call and email me 3 more times after that.
What I really wanted to say was "if it was YOUR kid would YOU leave the hospital, you crazy woman???"
