Should Have Just Driven Straight Thru

| OH, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Food & Drink, Technology

(We have never figured out how our simple drive-thru order was so misunderstood.)

Order: “One small hot fudge sundae.”

Cashier: Okay, that’s six hamburgers with marshmallows.


Meet Dead Smurf

| UT, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers

(I work in the bakery department. The entrance also enters into the deli. I notice that there were two spills of red liquid.)

Deli Employee #1: “It looks like we killed someone back here.”

Deli Employee #2: “I shot a Smurf.”

Me: “There are two spots.”

Deli Employee #2: “Well, I had to take out the witness.”


Tanking By The End Of Your Shift

| New Castle, DE, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Health & Body

(I tend to be one of those workers who will come in despite being sick and will work until I almost pass out or become physically ill. This story happens on one of those days. I happen across a toy train car that’s meant for transporting sea creatures, but the plastic animals barely move with how small the tanks are.)

Me: “But- but the tanks are too small for the critters.”

Coworker: “What?”

Me: *turning and gesturing at them with the toy, getting more distressed* “The tanks are too small for the critters.”

Coworker: “They aren’t real, you know.”

Me: “I know, but the tanks are too small for the critters.”

Coworker: “How about you just… go see [Manager]? Let her know how you’re doing.”

(I go and relay what happened to my manager, who stares at me for a long moment afterwards.)

Manager: “Well, do you think you can hang in there until [Coworker] comes in? If you can make it until then you can go ahead home, hun. Get some rest and get better.”

Me: “What about the critters?”

Manager: “The critters will be fine, [My Name].”

Me: “But… the tanks are too small.”

Manager: “Go take your fifteen.”

(I managed to make it until my coworker made it in, and ended up going home early. After some cold/flu medicine and some rest, I was no longer worried about the plastic sea creatures having room in their tanks.)
