    Yoda Boss

    | NY, USA | Coworkers, Geeks Rule

    (My company promotes me and hires a new person to replace me in my original position. I train him for a few months, and we become good friends. Now he is also being promoted, and the company is interviewing for his replacement.)

    Friend: “So, today I met a girl who was being interviewed to replace me.”

    Me: “I can’t believe you’re gonna be training someone yourself now! I feel like just yesterday I was training you. Soon there will be an Anakin to my Qui-Gon.”

    Friend: “So that makes me Obi-Wan?”

    Me: “Duh.”

    Friend: “What about [Girl who trained me, who I didn’t like very much]?”

    Me: “I guess that means she’s Count Dooku. Which totally makes sense.”

    Fear Not The Magic Of The Lightning Guild

    | FL, USA | Awesome Workers, Geeks Rule, Language & Words

    (I am having some work done in my house when a new worker shows up, surprising me since I thought I knew everyone and the head contractor had not told me new people were showing up.)

    Man: “Fear not my magics, fair maiden. I am a servant of peace! I am the one they call the Ender of all that is Dark! The vile forces of the water dwellers have rendered my brother unable to continue the tasks unsigned to him by the leader of our order.”

    Me: “I- uh… what?”

    Man: *laughs heartily* “I’m the new electrician; [Name] got some bad sushi last night, so our boss called me in to finish the job.”

    Me: *bursts out laughing* “Oh, my god, that is the best thing I’ve ever heard!”

    Not As Clear As Glass

    | USA | Bosses & Owners, Food & Drink, Geeks Rule

    (A friend and coworker of mine surprised me with a case of Coca Cola in glass bottles for my birthday, so the both of us decide to drink one with our lunch. Our manager comes in and sees us drinking them.)

    Manager: “Are you two drinking beer at work?”

    Coworker: “No, it’s Coke. See?”

    (She holds it up so he can see the label.)

    Manager: “Don’t lie to me! Coke doesn’t come in glass bottles! You’re drinking beer, aren’t you?”

    Me: “But Coke does come in glass bottles! They sell them at the [Grocery Store Chain]!”

    Manager: “I go to the [Grocery Store Chain] all the time and I’ve never seen them selling Coke in glass bottles!”

    Me: “Okay, fine. We’re not drinking Coke; it’s ‘Nuka Cola.'”

    (Nuka Cola is a radioactive soda from a video game.)

    Manager: “Oh, well, why didn’t you say so? Sorry to interrupt your lunch break. Make sure one of you reorganizes the shelves in the reptile section before you get off your shift. They’re a mess.”

    Has A New Hope It Won’t Be A Menace

    | ID, USA | Geeks Rule, Movies & TV

    (We have a 24-hour-hold area where we can temporarily hold items for patrons who call to ask for an item, forgot their library card, etc. I start my shift one day to find DVDs for all six ‘Star Wars’ movies stacked in the 24-hour-hold area, with a note attached.)

    Note: “Patron called and asked for the first three Star Wars movies. Didn’t know which ‘first three’ she meant.”

    Pray There Is No Weekend Expansion

    , | Montreal, QC, Canada | Awesome Workers, Coworkers, Geeks Rule, Technology

    (A friend and I are chatting at work. Note that we met through ‘World of Warcraft.’ This happens in the morning when we both log in to chat.)

    Me: “Welcome to the world of work! WoW: boring edition!”

    Friend: “WoW, like you’ve never seen it before! Grinding (to keep your job). New skills: copying, scanning, and sorting mail. New quests: copying, scanning, and sorting mail. New dailies: copying, scanning, and sorting mail. BUY IT TODAY!! Bonus: PHONES! WoW:RLE (Real Life Edition). Play today!”

    (Awesome way to start a Monday morning.)
