    Playing The Name Game

    | MA, USA | Awesome Workers, Employees, Family & Kids, Food & Drink

    (It’s a Sunday, and my best friend and I are going to the movies along with his little sister. However, the theater has closed early and we instead decide to go to a restaurant nearby. We order some appetizers and are just chatting. My friend works at a grocery store and still has his polo and nametag on. He’s not one of the sharpest knives in the drawer but he’s a really good person. We notice one of the bus girls approach us.)

    Worker: “Hi. You’re [Friend], right?”

    Friend: “Yeah, how’d you know that?”

    Worker: “My name is [Worker]. Don’t you remember me?”

    Friend: “Uh…” *pulls the ‘oh, yeah’ face* “I think I actually do! How you been?”

    Worker: “I’m lying. We’ve never met before.”

    (At this point his sister and I laugh hysterically.)

    Me: “You get a high five for that!”

    Sister: “Can I shake your hand?”

    Worker: “I’m sorry. You had your nametag on and I just couldn’t resist.”

    (My friend has a really good sense of humor and appreciates a good joke. As we’re leaving, we tip the waitress and he gives an extra tip to the bus girl as well.)

    (I’m at the hospital about to have major surgery to correct a birth defect. I’ve been getting x-rays quite a bit over the previous few months and am asked the same questions every time.)

    Tech: “Is there any chance that you could be pregnant?”

    Me: “No. Look, I realize you have to ask but I’m 13 years old and have my mother sitting right next to me. If there was a chance, do you REALLY think I would tell the truth?”

    Tech: “…”

    Mom: *almost falling over laughing*

    Putting The Relation Into Relationship, Part 5

    | London, England, UK | Employees, Family & Kids, Rude & Risque, Themed Giveaway

    (I am at my dentist of 10 years having a crown put in. Since the dentist is quite far from home my sister drives me and sits in the waiting room whilst I’m having my crown put in. This conversation happens with the dentist’s assistant.)

    Assistant: “So, is that your girlfriend outside waiting for you?”

    Me: “No, that’s my sister…”

    Assistant: “Oh… you look good together. You should date!”

    (Neither of us could make eye contact with the assistant after that.)

    The Poster Child For Creepiness

    | Erie, PA, USA | At The Checkout, Bizarre/Silly, Employees, Family & Kids, Themed Giveaway

    (My husband and I are shopping at a large store where you can buy things in bulk. The guy cashing us out notices the lady in line behind me starting to unload her cart. She only has a few items, all which are heavier, and a small child.)

    Cashier: “Ma’am, you can just leave everything in the cart.”

    Me: “Even the child?”

    Cashier: *in a low growl* “ESPECIALLY the child.”

    (I looked at him stunned, as I was just getting ready to say that, in a similar manner. I was laughing all of the way to the car. He totally made my day!)

    Swearing You Into A Job

    | MI, USA | Bosses & Owners, Family & Kids, Money

    (A group of people from work decide to get together at a restaurant down the street after work on Friday. I get out early and have to pick my husband up at the airport a little after dinner. I have my daughter with me. My manager has been working on cutting down on swearing.  It is a running joke among us at work and because my daughter is there, he is REALLY trying to not swear. I just went outside with a couple of other people and come back to hear this:)

    Daughter: “… You owe me money.”

    Manager: “What?”

    Daughter: “You owe me two dollars.”

    Manager: “For what?”

    Daughter: “You swore.”

    Manager: “Wait, I didn’t agree to this.”

    Daughter: “You owe me two dollars.”

    Manager: “How did this happen? I didn’t agree to that.”

    Daughter: “Yes, you did. We had a deal.”

    (She reaches over, grabs his hand, and shakes it.)

    Daughter: “See, we shook on it. We have a deal. You owe me two dollars!”

    Manager: “…”

    Manager: “You’re ten, right? Come see me in eight years; I’m giving you a job.”
