Cut the Cake Already
Company birthday parties are very interesting. The Person of the Hour stands alone while the rest of the company stares at that person, waiting for them to get through with their little, "Thank You, You All are So Nice" speech. What is important is cake, that it be cut quickly, distributed, eaten, and the whole thing be done with in short time. Also, people stand as far away from the Person of the Hour as physically possible given the dimensions of the room where the cake cutting takes place. The doorway to the room is clogged with the most people - those preparing for an easy escape as soon as a paper plate of cake is handed to them.
