Good intention, Wrong action

Recent Hooha over OCBC's birthday cake advertisment.
Found it pretty cheesy myself. However, someone took the advert literally and demanded a birthday cake in a bid to test the bank's sincerity. Good intention, but bo liao move my dear...

In all fairness, I am pretty sure that the advertisement did not promise a cake to every customer on their birthdays. But anyways, the lady got her cake and guess what? She complains about how terrible it turned out to be... Though, the apparent lack of service quality for the matter (Improve Pls!), I wonder if the poor fellow who bought the cake managed to claim from the company. He/She isn't exactly that highly paid you know. You want a cake, they give you a cake. You get the cake, you complain! KNN...

The entire episode is just plain tasteless. Having to work at 6pm on a Sunday is already a huge dampener for any employee. To have it further ruined by a prankster with her misguided wishes....
Like der.... It was the bloody cold huge corporation who made that ad, not the employee. Why trash and make things difficult for the innocent ones?

Someone mentioned for her to try getting POSB to fetch her children. It may work leh! Perhaps I should try that stunt and then blog about it so that I can also enjoy my 10 mins of internet fame as well!

Totally ridiculous. Someone just seem to have too much time on her birthday that she has to resort to such a prank.

I believe if she's in other countries she would like been shot dead right after she left the place. wad a silly tink to do! Many advertisements r misleading, like the cadbury chocolate with the 2 causacians kids brows dancing, do people tot after eating the chocolate they react like as per advertisements? tats crazy...
