This Woman’s Picture Of A Birthday Cake Decorated By A Store Employee With Autism Is Going Viral


With the holidays quickly approaching it’s definitely the time for us all to focus on being kind to anyone and everyone we meet. Lisa Sarber Aldrich learned just how important kindness is when she went to her local Meijer Grocery Store to pick up a birthday cake. Lisa bought a cake over the counter and asked the clerk to write on it. Without looking at the cake, Lisa smiled and thanked the clerk and went on her way to pay before glancing at the cake. Here’s what Lisa posted on facebook that’s now going viral;




Lisa wrote ‘Picked out a cake at Meijer. Asked bakery-looking-employee if she could write on it for me. She said she would, and after a long time, she came and presented me with this cake. I looked her In the eye and said thank you before I even looked at the cake. After looking, I nervously laughed and headed to check out- it didn’t really matter to me that it looked so bad- I thought people would think it was funny. The cashiers at the self check out didn’t think it was so funny though, and called a few more cashiers and a manager over to look, even taking pictures. To my surprise, after they discussed it, one cashier put her arm on my shoulder and said “the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her- even though she’s not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day.” So I guess the moral of the story is that kindness is important!

Sometimes it’s just the little things we can do to make someone else’s day a good one. This woman probably could have made an issue out of the writing on the cake and the young woman who wrote on it probably would have been told that she can’t write on cakes anymore, making her feel terrible, but she didn’t. She just accepted it and said ‘thank you’. And honestly, the cake looks pretty delicious and I’m pretty sure Mandy loved it. We need more kindness in this world.
