    Can’t Get Pasteurized Past Her Eyes

    | Jerusalem, Israel | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Themed Giveaway

    (My wife is a big fan of specialty cheeses, and she likes when I surprise her with new ones she’s never tried before. She’s currently pregnant, so I need to be careful not to buy her unpasteurized cheese.)

    Me: *pointing to a random cheese I’ve never heard of* “Is that cheese pasteurized?”

    Deli Worker: “It’s goat cheese.”

    Me: “Yes, but is it pasteurized?”

    Deli Worker: “It’s goat cheese.”

    Me: “I know it’s goat cheese. I’m asking if it’s pasteurized or not.”

    Deli Worker: *stares blankly*

    Me: “Some cheeses are pasteurized, others aren’t. I need to know if that one is or not.”

    Deli Worker: “I don’t know what ‘pasteurized’ is. It’s goat cheese.”

    (I give up and just buy some brie, because unlike most of the cheeses in the display I could read its ingredient label through the glass. How somebody who’s been selling cheeses for years doesn’t know what pasteurization means, I have no idea!)

    A Total Basket Case

    | Pigeon Forge, TN, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (My family and I decide to stop at a moon pie store.  They are running a special: 12 mini moon pies from a bushel basket of assorted flavors with a specialty commemorative box purchase.  It seems like a good deal, but the bushel basket is running low on the chocolate ones.  There are a lot of full cardboard boxes next to the basket (12 to a box), so I pick up one of the chocolate full boxes and carry it with the commemorative box to the counter.)

    Me: “Since the basket is running low and I want all chocolate, can I just take the full cardboard box and empty commemorative box for the deal price?”

    Clerk: “No, the mini pies need to come from the basket.”

    Me: “Yes, but there aren’t 12 chocolate pies in the basket.”

    (The clerk then proceeds to take the cardboard box from my hand, open it, and then dump it in the basket.)

    Clerk: “There, there are now there are enough in the basket.”

    Me:  *facepalm*

    Complete Lack of Section Direction

    | El Cerrito, CA, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid

    (My mom is shopping at a large chain bookstore soon before Christmas and is wanting help finding the science fiction section.)

    Mom: “Excuse me. Where is the science fiction section?”

    Employee: *looks extremely baffled* “Well, we have science and fiction sections.”

    Mom: “Oooookay. What about the historical fiction?”

    Employee: “I don’t think we have a section for that. Only one person writes it.”

    (She just gave up and found them herself.)

    Doesn’t Know Beans About The Menu

    | MI, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

    (My brother and I are both vegetarians, so we tend to make sure that items like soup are vegetarian.)

    Me: “What kind of soup do you have?”

    Server: “Minestrone.”

    Me: “Do you guys have meat in yours or make it with meat stock?”

    Server: “It doesn’t have any beef in it, but it does have beans. Are beans meat?”

    (Pause.)

    Server: “… It’s been a long day.”

    Not Very Good At Monitoring The Situation

    | OH, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Technology

    (I work in an office with older equipment that fails on a regular basis. One morning my computer monitor dies. I inform the morning supervisor and wait for IT to come replace it. Later, the afternoon supervisor arrives.)

    Afternoon Supervisor: “Why weren’t you taking calls earlier?”

    Me: “My monitor was broken. IT just replaced it a few minutes ago.”

    Afternoon Supervisor: “But you didn’t send me an email! Why didn’t you send me an email that your monitor wasn’t working?”

    Me: “Because… I had no monitor?”

    Coworker: *calls over in high voice* “BECAUSE… SHE… COULD… NOT… SEE… TO… TYPE!”
