    Serving A Fair Lady

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | Awesome Customers, Movies & TV

    (I am a hostess at a fairly high-end restaurant. On a quiet night, I am scanning through the reservations and organize the parties in different sections. I noticed one reservation under the name of “A. Hepburn.” I am a big Audrey Hepburn fan. At the time of their reservation, I greet an older couple at the door.)

    Me: “Welcome! Do you have a reservation this evening?”

    Customer: “Yes, thank you. The name is A. Hepburn.”

    Me: “Very good. Let me show you to your table, Ms. Hepburn…”

    (A moment later, I turn to one of my coworkers.)

    Me: “I’ve been waiting to say that all night.”

    Going To Spill Your Gummi Berry Juice

    | Lafayette, LA, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Movies & TV

    (I’m using a pair of scissors to curl some ribbons for a project, and humming to myself as I do so.)

    Coworker: “I was watching Dexter last night, and you humming with those scissors made me think of that…”

    Me: “Oh! Well… if it makes you feel any better? I was humming the Gummi Bears theme.”

    HB-Woah

    | Austin, TX, USA | Coworkers, Geeks Rule, Movies & TV

    (I work in the appliances department of a well-known home improvement store. The following conversation happens between my supervisor, my coworker, and me.)

    Supervisor: “I’ve read a few of the books but there was just too much stabbing in the back for me.”

    Me: “And I don’t think there was that much sex in the books. At least, that’s what I hear.”

    Coworker #1: “Well, it’s an HBO show. And because they can, they’ll add all that unnecessary stuff in there.”

    Me: “True. Still, the whole brother-sister thing?” *shivers* “I can’t stand it.” *notices Coworker #2 walking by* “Hey, [Coworker #2].”

    Coworker #2: “’Sup.”

    Supervisor: *ignores the greetings* “Yeah… incest is a big no for me. That’s usually where I draw the line.”

    Coworker #2: *stops and turns around with a look of horror on his face* “What… are you—”

    Supervisor: “Oh, Game of Thrones, man! Game of Thrones!” *laughs awkwardly*

    Coworker #2: “Oh.” *relaxes* “Okay.” *continues walking*

    Me: “Isn’t it funny how people will just accept whatever weird topic you’re talking about once you say it’s related to Game of Thrones?”

    Coworker #1: “Shows you how screwed up that show is.”

    The Fellowship Of The Night Shift

    | MI, USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Geeks Rule, Movies & TV, Musical Mayhem

    (Somehow on a late night shift all the nerds are working together and we have no customers. I’ve just shown a popular ‘Lord Of The Rings’ fan-vid to my coworkers on my break. A coworker walks past my department pushing the empty box cart.)

    Coworker #1: “Hop on and tell me what you see.”

    Me: *immediately jumps on cart and yells* “THEY’RE TAKING THE HOBBITS TO ISENGARD! ISENGARD!”

    Coworker #2: *without missing a beat* “What did you say?”

    Me: “THE HOBBITS THE HOBBITS THE HOBBITS!”

    (The manager rushes out of the office.)

    Manager: “TO ISENGARD GARD GARD GARD!”

    (We ran around the entire store doing that until we closed.)

    Bidding Adieu, Adieu To All Of You

    | SC, USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Movies & TV, New Hires, Theme Of The Month

    (One of our three physicians has just announced his impending retirement.)

    Whole Office: “Noooo!”

    Doctor: “It’s not until summer! I can’t leave until I find a replacement anyway. There’s a nice young man who’s looking at coming here. He’ll be visiting on Monday.”

    Coworker #1: “No! We’ll be on our worst behavior! ”

    Me: “Like the Von Trapp kids!”

    Coworker #2: “And we’ll scare him away so you can’t leave!”

    Doctor: “Now, now, it’ll be all right! He’s young, but train up a doctor in the way he should go…”

    (It’s kind of a joke in the office that the nurses used to ‘train’ the doctor by using chocolate as a reward for getting appointments done on time.)

    Coworker #3: “So we leave chocolate on his desk until he figures out our schedules?”

    Me: “But what if he doesn’t like chocolate?”

    Coworker #3: *horrified expression* “Then he doesn’t belong.”
