Most people who have a special birthday designed with someones name on it, expect it to look good.
This was the case for Lisa Aldrich who went to pick up her Meijer grocery store cake in Gaines Township, Michigan. She requested to have a message written on it, which the baking employee did and Lisa took her cake without having looked at how the message turned out.
Heres what Lisa had to say on social media after she saw her cake:
“Picked out a cake at Meijer. Asked bakery-looking-employee if she could write on it for me. She said she would, and after a long time, she came and presented me with this cake. I looked her In the eye and said thank you before I even looked at the cake. After looking, I nervously laughed and headed to check out- it didn’t really matter to me that it looked so bad- I thought people would think it was funny. The cashiers at the self check out didn’t think it was so funny though, and called a few more cashiers and a manager over to look, even taking pictures. To my surprise, after they discussed it, one cashier put her arm on my shoulder and said ‘the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her- even though she’s not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day.’ So I guess the moral of the story is that kindness is important!”
What a great woman for not becoming all upset like many people would. The response from social media was so wonderful that Lisa wrote a follow up message:
“I am totally overwhelmed by God’s goodness, and how he has used this cake story! I am sitting here weeping and reading through 100+ messages from people all over the country who have a loved one with Autism, thanking me. I just feel the need to say again – I didn’t do anything special. Be nice. That is all.”
