Due to glitches in New York’s health care exchange website, citizens attempting to navigate the Obamacare enrollment process are winding up at a cupcake shop in Brooklyn, the New York Post reported.

Brooklyn Cupcake has been erroneously listed as one of 288 locations where New Yorkers have been directed by the state Health Department for assistance seeking medical coverage.

“I have nothing to do with this,” said Carmen Rodriguez, the shop’s owner. “I run a very busy establishment, and I’m like, what is going on?”

The bakery has fielded at least 150 calls from people seeking medical insurance, according to the Post.

“There has to be somebody who can help with Obamacare; that’s their own mess,” she said. “I don’t want to be listed, because they are calling my telephone off the hook.”
