    Sadly Just A Flash Fire

    | WA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Coworkers

    Manager: “We’re going to have a fire drill during the meeting today. Some of you will be acting as staff and some of you will portray customers.”

    Coworker: “Can I be someone’s unmarked service animal?”

    Me: “Can I be the fire?”

    Manager: “No, we only have 10 minutes for this…”

    Wrong Answer, Princess

    | UK | Coworkers, Geeks Rule

    (My colleague is looking for iced tea but can’t appear to find any.)

    Colleague: “Do we have any peach?”

    Me: *unable to find any* “Looks like it’s in another castle.”

    Colleague: “What?”

    Me: “…never mind.”

    On A Bad Roll

    | Minneapolis, MN, USA | Coworkers, Lazy/Unhelpful

    (I work in an office as one of three female admins. I have worked with Coworker #1 for two years and we make fun of each other a lot. Coworker #2 has been around for five months and this is one of the reasons we don’t care for her:)

    Coworker #1: *after walking out of the bathroom* “[My Name]! I can’t believe you didn’t replace the toilet paper on the roll when it was empty!”

    (I couldn’t figure out if she was messing with me or not because the tissue was low when I was last in there but not gone. I was about to respond when…)

    Coworker #2: “That was me. I found the extra toilet paper but I didn’t put the roll on because I was on my lunch break.”

    A Completely Different Kettle Of Fish

    | NY, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Extra Stupid, Health & Body, Pets & Animals

    (I work in my university’s dining hall. Though most employees are students, not all are. I am the cashier and am using the slow period to do some reading for an upper-level literature course. Coworker, who is not a student, walks by.)

    Coworker: “Hey, whatcha reading?”

    Me:The Hermaphrodite.”

    Coworker: “Oh, never heard of it.” *begins to walk away, then stops* “Is that about a fish?”

    Working In An Animal House

    | Ireland | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Pets & Animals

    (For security reasons, in my job you cannot walk behind the counter without someone opening a door. As a joke, I sometimes scrabble at the door and meow until someone lets me in. My supervisor gets a kick out of this, so I always have to meow to be let in.)

    Me: “Meow.”

    Coworker: “Why are you meowing?”

    Me: “Oh, [Supervisor] makes me meow before she lets me in.”

    Coworker: “Oh. Woof.”

    Me: “Meow.”

    Coworker: “Woof.”

    Me: “Meow.”

    Coworker: “WOOF.”

    Me: *giving in* “Woof.”

    Coworker: “You sicken me!”
