    A Meaty Topic Of Conversation

    | TX, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Movies & TV

    Direct Supervisor: “Did you ever see the movie Alive?”

    Me: “Yeah…?”

    Direct Supervisor: “You know how they have to eat people to survive?”

    Me: “Uh-huh…”

    Direct Supervisor: “If that ever happened, and we’re in a plane crash together, I would not eat you. You don’t have much to bring to the table.”

    Not As Clear As A Belle

    | Waterbury, CT, USA | Extra Stupid, Movies & TV

    Me: “Hello. May I have two tickets to Belle, please?”

    Attendant: “Um, I think you mean the new Disney movie?”

    Me:Belle isn’t a Disney movie. It’s about a bi-racial women who works towards ending slavery in 18th century England.”

    Attendant: “Um, we don’t have anything like that…”

    Me: *sighs* “Can I get two tickets to that movie?” *points to ‘Belle’ movie poster*

    Attendant: “Ugh! That’s ‘Bee-Elle!’ It’s basically Cinderella. God, why is everyone so stupid…”

    Trash-Talking Ponies

    , | FL, USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Movies & TV

    Manager: “[My Name], can you help that customer?”

    Assistant Manager: “[My Name], can you get those wings? Remember, make three kinds from two bags.”

    Me: “Yeah, yeah, I got it.”

    (The oven begins to buzz.)

    Assistant Manager: “[My Name], can you put price tags on these cups of chicken


    Me: “Hang on; I’m trying to do four things at once here.”

    Manager: “[My Name], can you take out the trash?”

    Me: “Make that five things.”

    Assistant Manager: “Heh heh.”

    Me: “Anything else?”

    Assistant Manager: “Yeah, I want a pony. No, wait, make that a unicorn!”

    Me: “Well, [Local University]’s mascot is the Pegasus. I don’t know about unicorns, but maybe they have one of those there.”

    Assistant Manager: “I don’t want a Pegasus; I want a unicorn! No, wait. I want Rainbow Brite’s horse! Ugh… that was one of my favorite cartoons and now I can’t remember its name!”

    Me: “Well, s***, don’t ask me what it is.”

    Manager: “…Starlite?”

    (Our manager is a 39-year-old man.)

    Me: “Ooookay, that’s it. I’m outta here. I’m outta here before I inhale some pixie dust or something.”

    (I grabbed the trash cart and headed out of the department as both managers began cracking up.)

    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.”
