    An Un-Fairer Observation

    | AB, Canada | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners

    Manager: “We have a mystery shopper! Clean the women’s washroom. Then also sweep. The mystery shopper is outside in her car.”

    Me: “I’m on it.”

    (I do as I am told. The manager comes over to check up.)

    Manager: “The shopper is outside. She’s a lady.”

    Me: “Okay. I’ll keep an eye out for her.”

    Manager: “She’s a lady. Understand?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    (I didn’t know if that meant something else to her, but I only heard “She’s female.” I never saw the lone female that could have be the mystery shopper.)

    Not Makin’ It Out

    | ME, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Language & Words

    (I’m known for being rather quick-witted and goofy. One of the shift leaders comes over to me while I’m on the service desk.)

    Shift Leader: “How you makin’ out over here?”

    Me: “Well, I’ve never kissed a girl before but as soon as I have, I’ll let you know.”

    Shift Leader: *leaves with a large smile on her face trying hard not to laugh!*

    Job Hunting Is A Joke

    | Wales, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Job Seekers

    (I had an interview and the manager was unable to attend, but wants to meet with me and calls me up the next day to arrange it.)

    Me: “Too Many Hamsters R Us.”

    Manager: “Er, can I speak to [My Name], please?”

    Me: “Speaking.”

    Manager: “Hi, this is [Manager[ from [Centre]…”

    Me: “Oh, God, sorry about that. I always answer the house phone in a jokey way.”

    Manager: “You wouldn’t answer the work phone like that.”

    Me: “No, never.”

    Manager: “Chuckles.”

    (I hope I get this job. It wasn’t even a good joke!)

    Very Gourdy Earrings

    | NY, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners

    (I put in my Halloween pumpkin earrings last night and forgot I still had them in the next morning when I go to work. My boss is giving me a funny look the moment I walk into the door.)

    Boss: “Are those…. pumpkin earrings?”

    Me: “…with googley eyes.”

    Needs A Moral Screening

    | Montreal, QC, Canada | Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Health & Body

    (I have started seeing a gynecologist in order to be prescribed birth control. I still see him annually for renewals and pap smears. My gynecologist is male, which I wouldn’t mind otherwise, but he is very old, old-timey and set in his ways.)

    Gynecologist: “Sex is between a man and a woman, a penis and a vagina. No mouths, no fingers, none of that!”

    (This was on my first visit, after telling him that at the time I had been having frequent UTI’s. I was in a monogamous, heterosexual relationship at the time.)
