Paying It Forwards And Backwards

| MN, USA | Awesome Workers, Coworkers

(I am pulling up to a drive-thru at a coffee shop when I notice my coworker in the vehicle ahead of mine. I don’t think that my coworker notices me pulling into line behind her.)

Me: *placing my order* “Hi, I would like a large iced mocha. Also, I would like to surprise the vehicle ahead of mine and pay for their order. Will you tell them their drink has already been paid and to have a nice day.”

Worker: “Oh, that is so nice of you. So the total of both drinks will be [total].”

(I pull up to the window. And try to hand over the money to pay for the drinks.)

Worker: “Sorry, I can’t take your money.”

Me: “What do you mean? Why not?”

Worker: *laughing* “Because the customer ahead of you insisted on paying for your drink. I’ve never had this happen before.”

(I guess my coworker and I both had the idea to surprise each other. It made my day.)


You Want All Of Them As Sure As Eggs Are Eggs

| Boston, MA, USA | Employees, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I’m at the grocery store checking out some eggs. I pick up a half dozen, and as it seems light, open it; there’s only four eggs in there! I bring the carton up to the employee stocking the meats a few feet away.)

Me: “Excuse me; this carton only has four eggs in it.”

Employee: “Oh. Right. Okay…”

(He takes the carton from me and inspects the eggs. I’m about to say “thank you” and go back to looking when…)

Employee: “How many do you want?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Employee: “How many eggs? Do you want the full half dozen?”

Me: “Yes… Yes, I do.”

(I have no idea why he thought I would want a not-full carton of eggs!)


Asked The Thong Question

| Ireland | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Rude & Risque

(This takes place before my morning shift starts. There’s just me, my boss and two girls in.)

Girl #1: “[My Name], did you ever try Toms?”

Me: “No, why? Are they comfy?”

Girl #1: “So comfy! You should get a pair!”

(My boss who was in our canteen, sticks her head out with a confused look on her face.)

Boss: “Hang on a second! [Girl #1], did you just ask [My Name] if he wears thongs?”

(Both of us burst out laughing.)

Girl #1: “No. I asked if he wears Toms, the shoes.”

Boss: “Ohhhh. I was thinking to myself that [Girl #1] and [My Name] know each other waaay too well!”

(With this, Girl #2 came out of the canteen laughing. We all had a good laugh about it. And this isn’t the first time my boss has said something like that.)
