My birthday happened to fall on a Friday this year which also happens to be one of my work days. So away I went dressed in black with the Hut logo stitched on my shirt and straws in my apron. As I began work on Friday things began kind of slow so I started in on my assigned side work; cleaning out the cooler. As I took out the chocolate milk I saw a clear container with my name flashing through. This is what I found:
Two friends had dropped it off for me earlier in the day. Feeling a bit like I had gone back in time to the prom I never attended I wore it all night as I served my customers. It was good for conversation. Because of it my coworkers realized this marked my 29th birthday. Since we had a birthday party scheduled that night and since the left over cake was given to the party's server. They snuck a piece out back put a candle in it and sang happy birthday to me.
I loved my re-gifted cake, even though they were very apologetic for not having done anything bigger. Also giving me the advice that next year I need to announce well in advance my upcoming birthday. Adding in the assurance that they would begin announcing there own birthdays at least 3 months in advance so I could have fare warning...My re-gifted cake and happy birthday song in the back of the Hut is one of my all time favorite birthday memories. It was a good day.
