Upon returning to the building from my lunch break on Friday, I was approached by a young patron and her family.
Girl [holding up a store-bought “Happy Birthday” sheet cake in perfect condition]: “Excuse me, we found this in the parking lot.”
I took it inside, and asked my co-workers if anyone had asked about a cake. They said no.
Not really knowing what to do with it, I put it in the refrigerator in the staff lounge, with this note attached to it: ”Found in parking lot, do not open.”
When I returned Monday, the cake was half gone, the note still attached.
No one ever came forward as the cake owner and no one fessed up to eating the lost and found cake.
