It has been brought to my attention that my "No Cake Rule" may be viewed as overly harsh and unusually cruel to my fellow workers. I was especially made aware of this from my friend Kym who informed me that they have a rotating cake rule at her place of employment in Old Tweeds Bank! It seems that one person is assigned a person to buy a cake for on their birthday and when that birthday comes up they celebrate it. I will therefore temporarily lift my No Cake Rule and institute "Australian Birthday Cake Rules" to see how it goes. Heaven help us.
