This Story Has Yet To Be Titled

| Mexico | Coworkers, School, Trigger Story

(Before finishing college I work at a cyber cafe for about a year pay. The isn’t that great, but the work hours are flexible and my boss is nice and laid-back, and it is overall a good environment. I remember the first time one of my Coworkers told me about the slow days right after the end of school year.)

Coworker: “So, work load is gonna be very light for the next couple weeks. You know because of summer vacations.”

Me: “Great! These past few days were awful.”

(The week before the summer lull, our work increased ten-fold because of final school work, teachers bringing us exams to transcript, lots and lots of printing and scanning, etc.)

Me: “Why only two weeks? Classes don’t commence until August, right?”

Coworker: “Because after ‘detoxing’ from the finals both students and teachers remember that they have no idea of what to do with their free time, so they come back to us.”

(We both had a good laugh at that and later we told our boss. He told my Coworker that he had been working there for too long and gave him vacation time.)

Coworker: “Man, I’m so hungry.”

Me: “Do you want to try one of my peanut butter and jelly bars? I made them at home from scratch.”

Coworker: “Hmm… what’s in it?”

Me: “Peanut butter and jelly.”

Coworker: “But what’s IN it?”

Me: “It’s basically a peanut butter crumble with a layer of jelly in the middle.”

Coworker: “What’s INNN it though?”

Me: “Peanut butter. Jelly. Flour. Sugar. Eggs. Butter. I really don’t know what else to tell you.”

Lettuce Start Again

, | AB, Canada | Coworkers, Food & Drink, Health & Body

(I’m working in the kitchen with a partner.)

Cashier: “Hey, [My Name] and [Coworker], that sandwich on your screen with no onions is for a customer with allergies. Make sure you wash your hands before making it.”

Me: “All right, thanks.”

(We both wash our hands. When we come back and start making the burger, a thought occurs to me.)

Me: “Wait, [Coworker], didn’t you accidentally spill onions into the lettuce while restocking the table a few minutes ago?”

Coworker: “Yeah?”

Me: “Crap. Okay, hold on, I’ll open a new bag of lettuce just to be safe.”

Coworker: *pauses, then tosses some of the old, onion-filled lettuce on the sandwich* “Eh, it’ll be fine.”

Me: *stunned*

(Before he can pass the burger to the front, I grab it off the table and wordlessly throw it in the trash, before remaking it with fresh lettuce. I hear my coworker grumbling.)

Me: “You realize we could have very well sent that person to the hospital if we let them eat that, right?”

Coworker: “I figured they were lying!”

Me: “And you felt safe taking that risk?”

Coworker: *shuts up*
