2. Lisa Aldrich of Grand Rapids, MI picked up a plain sheet cake in the bakery department of her local Meijer. She handed it to a woman behind the counter and asked her to write on it. She did not notice the cake until she was checking out upfront. The writing was very "amateur" and messy. She was told by the cashier that the girl who must have scrawled the message was autistic and not supposed to write on the cakes. Aldrich happily bought the cake and took it home. Would you have accepted a cake that looked like this?
