UPSC Practice recommends Let them have cake inscriptions! Careful of the instructions you give when ordering online cakes.
Last week, a Nagpur resident ordered what looked like a perfectly lovely chocolate cake from a well-known city bakery. In the order detail – and this may be the cause of confusion – he made the innocuous query, ‘Please mention if the cake contains egg.’ Perhaps, as these online businesses have it, a bot responded to the question. It (mis)read the gentleman’s ‘please mention’ as a request to write on the cake, which was carried out with the telling words: ‘Contain (sic) egg.’
