Brandy got her first job in high school working behind the counter at a popular bakery in her Florida neighborhood.
She loved working the register, greeting customers and helping new brides order wedding cakes. But her time in the back with the bakers was a nightmare.
"They actually had the nerve to critique my dishwashing skills," she said. "I was smart enough to get a full-ride to college. But they didn't think I could clean a dish."So to get them back, Brandy gave away plenty of free food.
"My friends would come in and it was take your pick. Brownies, tiramisu, carrot cake, whatever they wanted," she said.Eventually her bosses noticed the goodies leaving without any cash in return.
"I never really considered food stealing," she said. The owner decided to point out her freebie giving to the entire staff on the bakery camera."I have never been more embarrassed," she said.
Brandy's never been back to the bakery.More From AOL Find a Job:
