Will Be In Your Head For A Long(stocking) Time

| Sweden | Coworkers, Movies & TV, Musical Mayhem

(As part of my evening shift, I clean the dining area, the student kitchen, the hallway, the stairs, the lobby, and the toilets. Due to our guests currently being middle school classes and making a huge mess, and me not being able to find a way to do the cleaning efficiently, I’ve often had to work overtime. My coworker and I are discussing this during dinner service. I have a tendency to get nostalgic things from my childhood on my brain, and I also have a tendency to get songs stuck in other people’s brains.)

Me: “I used the method you used when cleaning the guest rooms, the one where you just pour soapy water on the floor and sweep, and I actually managed to get cleaning done on time! Thanks for recommending it!”

Coworker: “Yeah, I saw [Other Coworker] do it when she was cleaning the dining area two weeks ago. You don’t have to dip the mop in the bucket, so you save a bunch of time. It’s like Pippi Longstocking, only you don’t have scrubbers on your feet.”

Me: “Yeah, that would get cleaning done even faster… Hey, so it’s your fault that I’ve had Pippi stuck in my head for the past four days!”

Coworker: “Heh, maybe.”

Me: “The intro song to the cartoon, specifically! Did you watch that as a kid?”

Coworker: “Of course I did! It was the s***.”

Me: *singing* “What shall I do today? What shall we do today? What shall I do today? What shall I do?”

Coworker: *laughs and goes into the kitchen*

(I continue to watch over the dining area for a while, handing out portions and keeping an eye on the drinks table, when my coworker comes back.)

Coworker: “D*** it! Now I have the song stuck in my head too!”

Me: *evil laugh*


Ensuring The Prince Always Remains Fresh

Spokane, WA, USA | Employees, Musical Mayhem

(I’m in a store that sells overstock and refurbished goods. It’s a massive place so you can go awhile without seeing another person. While searching, I noticed the radio started playing Tom Jones’s “It’s Not Unusual” and went down the next aisle, spotting an employing doing The Carlton – finger snapping and all.)

Employee: *continues dancing for perhaps half a minute before turning around* “Oh, uh…” *he stops dancing with the most embarrassed look on his face* “Can I… help you, miss?”

Me: “Uh, I was just looking around. You didn’t have to stop.”

(I went off to leave the poor guy be, but glanced back to see he resumed dancing. Shine on, you crazy diamond.)


Worried He’s Screaming For Vengeance

, | Austin, TX, USA | Bosses & Owners, Musical Mayhem

(I’m in the back area, prepping food to get ready for the lunch period. We wash our dishes in the same area. While prepping I am listening to some music from my phone, because I got a bit tired to of the country songs on the store speakers. So far, none of our managers have had a problem with that. Our general manager walks in on me with a load of dishes. A song by Judas Priest is playing.)

General Manager: “If Judas Priest is all you got on there…”

Me: *mentally prepping for the worst*

General Manager: “…then I will gladly wash dishes all day back here!”

Me: *speechless and getting a big smile out of astonishment*

(Needless to say that’s the last thing I expected to hear!)
