Angry Baker’s Easter Cake

“I would like to order your best Easter cake,” said Mrs. Smith, one of Angry Baker’s best customers.

“I can have it ready for you the afternoon before Easter,” said Angry Baker.

“That will not work,” said Mrs. Smith. “I need it sooner than that.”

“I can’t do it!” yelled Angry Baker at the top of his lungs. “I am swamped with orders.”

“Fine,” said Mrs. Smith. “I will take my business elsewhere.”

“Okay,” said Angry Baker. “I will have it ready for you the day after tomorrow.”

“That will be fine,” said Mrs. Smith.

Mrs. Smith came by the bakery the day the cake was to be ready. Mrs. Jones, Angry Baker’s other best customer stopped by the bakery as Mrs. Smith was paying for her Easter cake.

“That is a beautiful Easter cake,” said Mrs. Jones. “I want to order your absolute best Easter cake.”

“That is impossible,” said Mrs. Smith. “The cake I have here is the best Easter cake.”

Just then, Angry Baker’s fiancĂ©e, Melissa, came into the bakery.

“What is going on here?” asked Melissa, sensing some tension when she walked through the door.

“These two women are arguing about who will get the best Easter cake,” yelled Angry Baker, angrily. “How can I bake Mrs. Jones the best cake when I just baked the best cake for Mrs. Smith?”

“I see,” said Melissa. “Now, dear, you know that Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Jones are your best customers.”

“That is very true,” said Angry Baker.

“Okay,” said Melissa. “If that is the case then both Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Jones should get the best Easter cake.”

“I don’t follow you,” said Mrs. Smith.

“I don’t either,” said Mrs. Jones.

“It is simple,” said Melissa. “Bake Mrs. Jones the same cake that you baked Mrs. Smith. That way they both get the best cakes.”

“That is a great idea,” said Angry Baker, giving Melissa a kiss.

“Yes,” said Mrs. Smith. “I would agree that is a great idea.”

“I agree,” said Mrs. Jones.

“Happy Easter!” exclaimed Angry Baker.

“Happy Easter!” said both Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Jones together.


Moral of this Story:

  • It isn’t good to get angry.
  • Example: Angry Baker was angry because both Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Smith wanted his best Easter cake.
