Communication is key

When ordering something for a special event it is always recommended to communicate clearly what you want. Plus of course it is equally important to make sure the company/person you order from understands exactly what you are saying and what you desire.

Otherwise you might have an interesting surprise like this cake ordered from a Walmart bakery.

I assume the conversation in the Walmart Bakery went something like this.

Walmart Employee: "Hello, how can we help you"
Customer: "I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week."
Walmart Employee: "What do you want written on the cake?"
Customer: "Best Wishes Suzanne" and underneath that "We will miss you".
Walmart Employee: "Got it."

I think most people would figure that out without you explaining it.

I still can't figure it out. :-)

I was slow enough to need an explanation. Thanks, Herbie!
