    Doodled Out A Project

    | NY, USA | Awesome Workers, Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers

    (My coworker and I handle many of the same accounts, so she asks me to attend a meeting for one of her projects and report back. While in the meeting, I absentmindedly start doodling on the project brief. Afterwards, I realize that I have to give it to her.)

    Me: “So here’s the brief for the [Project]… and also some shapes and a monster saying ‘Rar’.”

    Coworker: “Wow, nice!”

    Keep Hush About The Slush

    | Atlanta, GA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Food & Drink, Technology

    (We just had a slushy machine installed, but have been having problems with it from day one.)

    Coworker: “Uh-oh. Looks like the machine’s acting up again.”

    Me: “Great, what’s it doing this time?”

    Coworker: “Nothing’s coming out. It looks like it’s backed up.”

    Me: “Let me try.”

    (I pull the handle a few times, and like he said, nothing is coming out. It’s at that moment that I have an epiphany.)

    Me: “I think I know what to do. Hold on.”

    (I grab a straw and jam it into the spout. Sure enough, the slushy starts gushing out.)

    Coworker: “Wow, that was amazing!”

    Me: “Yeah. Just please never ask me how I knew that would work.”

    I’ve Gotta Find This Pizza Place

    | GA, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Food & Drink, Money

    (I’m moving and in the process of packing everything up. I decide to go grab some pizzas for everyone. I have a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. I order what I want, and hand over the coupon. The cashier looks confused and rings up my order. I try to hand him money.)

    Cashier: “No, you don’t owe us money. You get the pizzas free.”

    Me: “What are you talking about?”

    Cashier: “This coupon means you get your pizzas free.”

    (We continued to argue until the manager showed up and agreed with his employee. I ended up walking away with two free pizzas, free soda, AND cash back.)

    Don’t Question The Need For Permission

    | Eastbourne, England, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Employees

    (I’m known for having a fairly oddball and surreal sense of humour. I have only been in my current job for a month, but my colleagues and bosses are already getting used to me. Mostly…)

    Me: “[Team Leader]?”

    Team Leader: “Yep?”

    Me: “Can I ask a question?”

    Team Leader: “Sure.”

    Me: “Thanks.”

    Team Leader: “…What’s the question, then?”

    Me: “Oh, I don’t have one right now. I just wanted to make sure I had permission, that’s all.”

    Team Leader: “What…?”

    Not The Boss Of Knowledge

    | TX, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers

    (I share an office with three others, including my boss. A coworker comes in and looks disappointed at seeing my boss’s empty chair.)

    Me: “Looking for [Boss]?”

    (My coworker nods and looks at me expectantly.)

    Me: *after a pause* “…I don’t know why I asked that. I have no further information about his location.”

    (My coworker and officemates burst out laughing.)

    Me: “I didn’t think that through, did I?”
