Weve come across what might just be the most unbelievable text exchange on Reddit: A person threatening to tell their co-workers office and HR about the fact they wont bake them a cake for their birthday… for free.
And thats not the worst bit – the pair hardly even know each other.
A Reddit user recently shared the conversation online, to show the audacity of the person messaging her.
She received a text which read: Hey I heard that you baked a cake for your team on his birthday. Its my birthday next week, can you bake me a cake and bring it into the office? Its free right?
The woman replied saying that she had volunteered to make the cake because the team usually puts money into it, and that it would be a bit awkward for her to make them a cake, as they dont really know each other and she hasnt spoken to any of their team before.
But the person wouldnt let up. They explained that they were going to buy a cake, but it was free to ask her, so they did. Rude, right?
And, to make matters even worse, they suggested she just bring the cake to their desk, and they will dish it out so its not awkward for her. How considerate.
They then went on to send a photo of the cake they wanted – a large chocolate cake decorated in Ferrero Rocher and Lindt Truffles. Two fairly expensive chocolates, might we add.
But they were a little nicer this time – saying that the baker could count the cost of the chocolates towards their birthday cake. How sweet.
Instead, the woman explained that she could make him a box cake or some cookies, to which they asked whether she was joking.
She went on to explain that it was probably best that they buy a cake themselves, as she didnt have the time and the whole thing made no sense.
The coworker wasnt happy. Instead of acting like an adult, they threatened to tell the office about the interaction (which doesnt make a lot of sense) and that she could expect a call from HR soon.
Yes, they really threatened her with HR because she wouldnt make someone she barely knows an expensive cake for free.
