I got a surprise package delivered to my work today - a whole gluten and dairy free sponge cake! It was a present from my Mum because I didn't have a birthday cake.

I shared it with everyone at work because it was enormous. We had a lovely time down here in the office; everyone said thank you and we talked about the taste and the texture and signing up with this cake company.

Then the managers upstairs came down, grabbed their slices and disappeared off again without even looking at me.

Next time I don't think I'll even tell upstairs that I have cake.

    That is very rude, but at least your floor-level folks were appreciative. Focus on that instead!

    Light and peace your way. Don't them put a damper on your generosity!

And hope the cake was delish!

    It makes you wonder what is wrong with some people. That was a lovely gesture from your Mum to send you the cake -- and to send it to your work where you could immediately share it with others. Dwell on the thoughtfulness of your Mum rather than the rudeness of others.

    You are right that was a very rude gesture not to even say Thank you or happy Birthday.
It is so cool that your Mum sent the cake and that you were willing to share it with others.
If it was really good you might want to post the name of the cake company so others who are looking for a gluten free option might benefit

    Your right that is rude. Just know you are the better person for including them. Happy Birthday to you anyway. Did you like the cake?
