I took the photo. I bought the cake at the grocery store and asked them to do the writing. My wife and I went back and forth on what cake to purchase. We wanted to get something that looked good and that we could also eat :) Wanted to get our moneys worth.
The story is an idea I’ve had for a while. It’s inspired by bad going away parties at various jobs throughout the years. None of them have been this bad (but close). I’m drawn to stories about work because we put so much time and effort into our jobs. We want so much from them and yet we don’t always get the praise we think we deserve in return.
Thank you for reading.
