Can you believe the audacity of some people?

What would seem like a perfectly safe thing to ask a friend to do turns into a moment of disappointment for this newly wedded couple. Check this out.

Recap of the case:

The newly married couple cut the top couple’s cake to their 75 cupcake layered wedding cake. Intending to pass out the cupcakes to the wedding goers, the task was forgotten as they enjoyed the festivities of the day.

At the end of the reception and a friend helped them box up the cupcakes. Later when they went to retrieve them, they were gone.

What happened to the wedding cupcakes?

1.The catering crew thought they belonged to the catering materials and removed them at the end of the meal.

2. Two of the kids that attended the wedding smuggled them home in their car to nibble on later.

3. The best man took them home to his bachelor pad to share with buddies.

4. The friend took them to her boyfriend’s job to pass out as a treat.

When the young couple realized that they had forgotten to hand out the cupcakes, the friend assured them that she would take care of them until after the wedding night. The next day when they had tried to call the friend, she refused to answer the phone.

The bride was so angry that she stopped at the woman’s house the next day before leaving on her honeymoon. The woman didn’t answer the door. Finally, she left 25 of the 75 cupcakes on her doorstep and texted the bride that her boyfriend had them at his job at the police station.

As you can imagine, the bride remained miffed! She tried to file a police report, but they said a crime wasn’t committed.

    I would ask the person what were they thinking. I would probably want some kind of reimbursement, and depending on responses I would decide if the person was worthy of continuing friendship.
