This Woman Was Taunted About Her Weight At The Bakery, So She Took Her Sweet Revenge

Vega Blossom stopped by her local bakery to buy some cupcakes. But while she was in line, the woman behind her started making cruel comments about her weight. And the teenager knew just what to do to teach her a lesson.

Blossom is a 19-year-old from Indiana. She is a student and also works as a barista at Starbucks. Blossom grew up in Valparaiso, where it wasn’t uncommon to hear nasty remarks about her size.

“Growing up a chubbier girl, I always got snide comments about my weight from people who, for some reason, think that it’s their business,” she told Caters News agency. Nowadays, Blossom wears a US size 18. And she hasn’t stopped being on the receiving end of cruel insults.

On March 31, 2018, Blossom noticed that her favorite bakery, Designer Desserts, was having a sale for Easter. So she decided to stop by the shop shortly before closing time. The barista wanted to buy a few cupcakes and didn’t expect what happened next.

The 19-year-old was in line behind somebody who was ordering a cake. And the person behind her was making loud remarks as she grew increasingly agitated. “The lady in front of me took FOREVER getting her cake and the lady behind me was being really impatient and rudely talking about it,” Blossom shared on Facebook.

Blossom decided not to pay any attention to what the woman behind her was saying. Finally, the person in front completed her transaction and left the bakery. The student approached the till to make her order and couldn’t believe what she heard.

“As I walked up to the counter the lady turns to her friend and says, ‘Thank God, now let’s hope this fat b**** doesn’t buy all the cupcakes,’” Blossom revealed on Facebook. The 19-year-old was in shock. “When I heard the nasty things the women said, I honestly wanted to cry. It really hurt my feelings,” she told Caters News.

“How could these grown women be so mean to someone that they’ve never met, let alone talked to?” Blossom added. “Things like this usually wouldn’t bug me but the fact that I didn’t know these women and that they said this so rudely and loudly – so that I could obviously hear it – was different than other times.”

Although the mean words took Blossom by surprise, she tried to remain calm. “I swallowed the hurt and thought of the best possible thing that I could do back to them that wasn’t horrible, but that would teach them a lesson about respecting others,” she explained. So Blossom came up with the perfect way to get her revenge.

Designer Desserts was selling mega-sized cupcakes that are three times bigger than average. Blossom intended to purchase half a dozen of them but changed her mind when she heard the taunts about her size. “Originally I was buying six but as soon as I heard that, I BOUGHT EVERY DAMN CUPCAKE,” she wrote on Facebook.

As the women looked on annoyed, Blossom ended up buying 20 of the large baked goods, which was everything the store had left in stock. And the staff members also gave her cookies and chocolates without any charge after hearing the sneers about her body. “I SPENT $54 ON CUPCAKES JUST TO BE A B****,” the student shared. “HAPPY EASTER.”

And Blossom found one last way to aggravate the people who had been standing behind her. “I looked the pair straight in the eyes and asked, ‘Could you please open the door for me? My hands are a bit full,’” she told Caters. “Reluctantly, one woman held the door open before following me outside.”

While Blossom described her actions as “petty,” she doesn’t have any regrets over what she did. “I think, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. I am NOT sorry for taking all of the cupcakes,” she said.

But the 19-year-old student couldn’t have predicted that her story would go viral. She posted about what happened on Facebook and has now received 89,000 likes and over 27,000 shares. And commenters were quick to applaud Blossom for defying her tormentors.

“Ha! Brilliantly handled and with dignity, something that the name-calling woman wouldn’t understand,” one person wrote. “Society is too quick with criticism and negativity and this young lady found a way to deal with it without stooping to a mud-slinging situation.” Others called Blossom “awesome” and said it was “well played.”

Blossom was praised on Facebook by people she had never even met for standing up for herself. “This made my entire morning. Thank you so much,” Maddie May commented. And Brittaney Robison added, “You don’t know me, but you’re my sweet-toothed hero.”

The 19-year-old was inundated with friend requests on social media and admits she didn’t anticipate her actions would make such an impact. “I am super happy with all the support that I have been getting,” the student posted online. And she used her internet fame to ask others to consider donating to an animal charity.

Although Blossom had to deal with with the insensitive comments of her fellow customers at the bakery, she has received a huge amount of support in the time since. “I admire you! You inspire people and made a wave with just a ripple!” Heather Blair wrote on Facebook. Blossom has also done interviews and radio appearances.

The young woman split the majority of the cupcakes with her co-workers and family over the Easter break and says that they were “delicious.” But it seems that she won’t have a shortage of sweet treats any time soon. The teen has been receiving cake deliveries from Designer Desserts at work.

“I am honestly so thankful for these guys and everything that they have done for me,” the barista shared on Facebook. And Blossom hopes that her story will teach people to think before they speak. She told Caters News, “Hopefully this was a lesson in treating others kindly and maybe a lesson in karma as well.”
