Maybe It’s Pregnancy Brain

| Winnipeg, MB, Canada | Bosses & Owners, Extra Stupid, Time

(My supervisor is getting ready to go on maternity leave, and today is her last day. Maternity leave is six months. My supervisor is a real stickler for details.)

Me: “Well, goodbye, and good luck! Gee, I can’t believe I won’t see you again for six months.”

Supervisor: “FOR THE LAST TIME, IT’S NOT SIX MONTHS! IT’S 26 WEEKS! God, why can’t you people get a simple fact straight?”

Me: “Uh, sorry.” *walks away, then suddenly thinks* “Wait a minute!”

(I am calling my bank to let them know that I will be going out of the country, and may end up using my credit card during that time. This occurs after giving them all of my relevant personal information and the teller has logged into my account.)

Teller: “So, what are you calling about today?”

Me: “I just wanted to let you know that I will be going to Guatemala and Honduras from [Date] to [Date], just so you don’t put a hold on my card for suspicious activity.”

Teller: “Okay, where?”

Me: “Guatemala and Honduras.”

Teller: “I’m sorry?”

Me: *slowly* “Guatemala and Honduras.”

Teller: “Oh… What state is that in?”

The Dirty Dozen

, | Brisbane, QLD, Australia | At The Checkout, Extra Stupid, Food & Drink

(I don’t usually like take away but this particular day I felt an unusual craving for chicken nuggets.)

Me: “Hi, I’m just wondering what quantities the nuggets come in?”

Cashier: “Umm, 3,6,9,12, or 18?”

Me: “Oh, can I please have half a dozen nuggets please?”

Cashier: “Oh, we don’t do half a dozen only 3,6,12, and 18 packs.”

Me: “Okay, I’ll have six, please.”

Cashier: “Sure, that’ll be [price]. Sorry, we’re not allowed to change the pack sizes.”

Me: “Um, that’s okay…”

(I walked away with my “six nuggets” with three free ones.)
