    They Can Af-Ford The Answer

    | Jacksonville, FL, USA | Employees, Family & Kids, Movies & TV

    (I work as a camp counselor. This week is ‘Star Wars’ week, and I am doing a trivia games with the kids. All of the kids are 10-12 but one.)

    Me: “Okay… for 10 points, who can tell me the name of the actor who played Han Solo?”

    Five-Year-Old: *jumps up immediately* “INDIANA JONES!”

    Me: “Close enough!”

    This Call Will Make A Man Out Of You

    | UK | Coworkers, Movies & TV, Musical Mayhem

    (I am listening to Disney music with the same headphones the company uses to talk to clients.)

    Me: *singing softly* “You are a spineless, pale, pathetic lot, and you haven’t got a clueee…”

    Colleague: *shocked* “Please tell me you are not on the phone right now”

    Will Gladly Pay For The Lip Toupee

    | Hampton, VA, USA | At The Checkout, Awesome Workers, Money, Movies & TV

    (I am working in the box office, sporting a nicely waxed handle-bar moustache. A couple of older ladies come to buy tickets to a movie.)

    Lady #1: *to me* “Do you have a senior discount?”

    Lady #2: *to Lady #1* “They don’t have a senior discount. [Other Theater] has a senior discount.”

    Me: But [Other Theater] doesn’t have me.”

    Lady #2: “Are you worth the extra $5?”

    Me: *pointing to my moustache* “The moustache alone is worth the extra $5.”

    (Both ladies walked into the show smiling.)

    Quiet Faith

    | Melbourne, VIC, Australia | Coworkers, Movies & TV, Religion

    (I am a Christian and my faith is a strong part of my life. Although I never talk about religion at work, many of my colleagues know me on Facebook where I am not shy about expressing my faith. As such, many of my colleagues associate me as being ‘religious.’ I am just chatting to one of these colleagues, who was also previously my boss before I transferred to another department.)

    Coworker: “Hey, I thought about you on the weekend!”

    Me: “Yeah?”

    Coworker: “Yeah, I saw this show – I don’t know if you’ve seen it – called Justified?”

    Me: “I haven’t seen it.”

    Coworker: “It’s this crime show. Like, really really vicious, extremely violent crime—”

    Me: “And this made you think of me?”

    Coworker: “—and religion.”

    Me: “So that’s what you think of me?”

    Coworker: “It was the religion bit!”

    Me: “Horrific, vicious, violent crime.”

    Coworker: “And religion! It was the religion bit!”

    Me: “Religion associated with violent, vicious—”

    Coworker: “Well, they do say to look out for the quiet ones!”

    Me: “They haven’t convicted me yet!”

    Coworker: “That’s because you’re too smart to get caught!”

    Sam, Dean, And A Little Baby

    | Adelaide, SA, Australia | Employees, Extra Stupid, Geeks Rule, Movies & TV

    (I am looking to purchase a copy of a tie-in magazine for the TV show ‘Supernatural.’ I can’t find it on the shelf but while I am browsing the owner asks if I need any help.)

    Owner: “Can I help you with anything?”

    Me: “Yes, do you have Supernatural Magazine?”

    Owner: “We don’t have that one but we have these! They are about the same thing.”

    (The owner has taken me around to the ‘women’s interest’ section and is pointing at magazines about babies and motherhood.)

    Me: “This is not what I was after.”

    Owner: “We don’t have Pregnancy magazine but these are all about pregnancy!”
