Baker's dozen

By Glenn - 21/03/2021 13:01 - United Kingdom

Today, my dad undermined my life's work. I finally opened my own bakery, but my dad told me it's a "sissies job" since it doesn't involve manual labour like he did for 50 years and I'll probably go out of business, because no one will want cakes from a 6 foot 8 man with tattoos, piercings and a shaved head.

Is it weird that that makes me wanna buy them from you more? I think you’ll attract more customers because you’re unique in your business

How is baking not manual labour? It is the definition of manual labour and it's a very tiring job. Get your father to spend a day with you at the bakery to show him. By the way, not that it matters but a lot of the most famous bakers on Earth are straight men. EVERYONE likes cake, there is no gender or sexual orientation involved here.

where you at, man? I’ll buy a cake right now just to spite your dad

I would totally buy cake or donuts or just about anything else in his bakery for the same reason.

Good luck to you! Follow your dreams!

Your dad clearly doesn’t know what he is talking about. Don’t listen to him, work hard, follow your dream and you’ll be happy to have found your way.

don't listen to him. running a business isn't an easy job, follow your dreams and keep going. I bet they're delicious!!

Hell, open up a website and I'll put in some orders now!

I would absolutely want to buy a cake from a baker like that!!
