Greggs staff suspended for having cakes that were meant for the bin
Greggs - the purveyors of the finest food on the planet - are showing the strength of their pimp-hand as, what is reported to be nine members of staff, have been suspended after they took some cakes that were going to be thrown away.
Everyone knows that bin-cakes are the best cakes.
One of the staff wrote in an online forum: "I was one of those suspended because I took four cakes home. They had CCTV fitted in and didn't say anything to the staff."
Greggs patrons are, of course, outraged, replying to the post with disgust, saying that the suspension was a "disgrace". As they were lovely bin-cakes, one wrote: "Isn't it better that someone takes it home and eats it?" with another adding that the "nice ladies brightened my lunch hour" because they "always remember what you want".
Greggs themselves are declining to talk about this incident (presumably preferring to horse a load of delicious festive bakes down their holes) as it isn't policy to comment on internal matters.
And if you're wondering, this Greggs was in South London.
