Usually any shenanigans that happen at Walmart are caused by the kind of people who shop there. Like the naked karate-kicking cornbread thieves, or the scooter-riding drunk woman chugging wine from a Pringles can. But sometimes when the moon is full, Walmart employees are to blame.
HuffPo reports that a woman from Pasadena, Texas named Marsy Flores got fucked over by Walmart’s bakery department twice last week. The first time was when she went to pick up a cake for her daughter’s high school graduation party. Marsy was expecting the two-tiered cake that she ordered, but Walmart lost it. So Walmart offered her a pre-made display cake. Marsy chose a blue and white cake, and got a picture of her daughter in her cap and gown printed on the top. Walmart threw some plastic grad decorations on top, and they gave it to Marsy on the house.
Unfortunately, when Marsy and her sister went to cut into the cake, their knife wouldn’t go through it. That’s when they discovered that Walmart had sold them a frosted styrofoam cake. Marsy took the cake back, and Walmart apologized with a $60 gift card. But Marsy was still pissed because she wanted the graduation party to be “perfect.” When reached for comment, Walmart said:
“The incident was the result of a misunderstanding. The matter has been resolved. The customer was given a gift card for her inconvenience.”
That $60 gift card clearly didn’t heal the styrofoam-sized wound on her soul, and so she went to KPRC-2 news with her story. No word on whether this is the last we hear about Marsy vs. The Styrofoam Menace. Walmart is probably already busy whipping up more styrofoam fancies. Come on, it’s Walmart. Don’t tell me they haven’t already had several customers call in asking for one of those Ooops! All Frosting cakes. “Actually, you know what? I don’t even need the styrofoam. Can you just stick a couple candles in a tub of icing?”
