Today, a coworker left a chocolate cake on the "free food" table in the office. I had a slice. She's just called to ask if she left her grandmother's birthday cake at work. She made it from scratch. Now I'm baking a new cake in the office kitchen. FML

Had anyone else eaten a slice yet? While it was in the "free food" section, I'm always hesitant to take the first piece of something, unless the person who brought it is directly offering. If other people had eaten it first, it's not solely your fault, and you'd be under no obligation to replace it (though that is kind of you). Truly, putting it there in the first place was her fault, so you're still under no obligation.

OP, you are a good hearted person to want to correct that. But I doubt that your employer pays you to bake replacement birthday cakes. You may wind up in trouble with your boss over this. Your coworker was an idiot if she left unattended a cake on the table used for shared treats and didn't expect it to get shared.

Nowhere in OP's FML did she say the cake had "Happy Birthday" on it or candles, so I assume it did not have any signs of being a birthday cake.
