Labourous Day

It doesn’t matter how much you educate people, there are areas of their brains that remain stupid. Questions come out of their mouth that would only take a millisecond to answer for themselves if they only thought about it for that length of time.

You would not believe how many times I’ve had this conversation. Many, many times….. and again last night, working late, tired and lacking any patience.

“What’s this?” pointing to a white birthday cake.

“That’s a vanilla cake.”

“What’s inside of it?”

“Vanilla cake.”

“What’s the filling?”

“Vanilla icing.”

“What’s that?” pointing to the brown cake.

“That’s chocolate cake.”

“What’s inside of it?”

“Chocolate cake.”


It’s all I can do to not interrupt and say, “The white is vanilla and the brown is chocolate” as if I was talking to a child.

Last night I put the wrong label on a chocolate cake. He pointed out, “No, this one is vanilla.”

(Take a deep breath)


This is it. I worked all the long weekend, including Friday. Last night I worked until 10:00 p.m. for the last time ever. Now we close at 9:00.

Today I’m working noon til 5:00 for time and half (holiday pay) and the tourists are leaving en masse! Yay!! My last summer driving to Grand Bend and working so damn hard is over! Thank God I never have to do that again!
