(I work as a correctional officer. Last night, a sink in one of the blocks was clogged, so maintenance had to fix it.)

Maintenance Guy: “Got it cleared; it was a bar of soap.”

Me: *to the two inmates in the block* “Don’t drop the soap!”

(I work in the quality department of a call center for a large bank that has branches across the country. This is a one of the calls I listened to:)

Member: “I would like to do a cash advance from my credit card and deposit to my checking.”

Representative: “Okay, is your cash advance on your account?”

Member: “…”

Representative: “Is your cash advance with the bank?”

Member: “Transfer me to the branch; I can’t handle the call center right now.”

(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!”
