I had worked at the bank for about 8 weeks when Bosses Day was approaching. I had already been voted the "Money Girl" and made collections for all occasions (Birthdays, Bosses Day, United Way Casual Days, Bake Sale, etc.) People were telling me that as often as I was asking for money they should just sign me up to their accounts. Anyway, I had all the money so that weekend I went and got him the Gift Card to Whole Foods (a Natural Foods store) and on that Monday I was to go and get a balloon, cake and some Diet Cherry Pepsi. It went very well. He loved it all (especially the Pepsi which was my idea).
After our afternoon meeting we were able to give out about 1/4 of the cake. We took the rest back to our area and cut it up. I asked one of my co-workers if he had wanted any and he said no, but as I was walking by with the cake he changed his mind. After some debating back and forth he decided to choose a piece. After he was done, as I was putting the lid back onto the cake, the cardboard that the cake was on slid right off the plastic of the tray that the lid attached to and the entire rest of the cake fell, frosting first, onto the carpeted floor, narrowly missing my co-worker and myself. It seriously looks like a clown fell onto the floor, face first. I started doing that hysterical, embarrassed laugh and had problems controlling it. I giggled quietly as I walked to and from the break room to get wet towels. I'm no longer allowed to carry cakes at work.
