>Today was my last day of work at Karolyn’s Kitchen. All of the other waiters and waitresses pitched in and bought me a piece of cheesecake as a going away present, which was quite delicious.
Granted, the cheesecake was actually my idea.
That is to say that everyone buying me the cheesecake was my idea.
This was accomplished by telling everyone, “Hey, just to let you know, all of the waiters are pitching in and buying me a piece of cheesecake as a going away present.”
