West Michigan Meijer Employee Thanks Customer That ‘Made’ Autistic Employee’s Day
Lisa explains in a Facebook post that she visited a Grand Rapids-area Meijer and bought a cake. She asked someone in the bakery to personalize the cake. A while later the employee returned with the cake in a box. Lisa thanked the employee and went on to a checkout lane. It was then that she looked at the cake. It had indeed been personalized, but the handwriting was... well... not what you might expect to find on a cake.
Lisa says she was amused but when other Meijer employees saw it, they became concerned. Except for one of the employees, who put her arm on Lisa's shoulder and told her "the girl who wrote that has Autism. Thank you for smiling and thanking her- even though she's not supposed to write on cakes, you probably made her day."
Lisa closed her post reminding us all that "Kindness is important."
