It’s A Miracle You Still Have A Job

| Beaver Falls, PA, USA | Bad Behavior, Bosses & Owners, Employees, Popular

(I am in high school. I have a dress I am going to wear for a choir concert that requires a strapless bra. As I do not own one, my mother takes me lingerie shopping. We aren’t having much luck, as my boobs are not exactly perky, so my mother calls the saleslady in.)

Mom: “Excuse me, could you help us here?”

(The lady comes in, takes one look at me, and looks back to my mother.)

Saleslady: *small snort* “Well, I’m not a miracle worker.”

(Both my mother and I were so shocked at her rudeness we couldn’t think what to say. Later, we complain to the store manager.)

Manager: “Oh, that must have been [Saleslady]. She does that kind of stuff all the time. I don’t know how she gets away with it.”


Not A Large Problem To Have

| TX, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Food & Drink

(During a road trip, my mom pulls into a drive-thru to buy my brother and me, ages four and six respectively, something to drink.)

Employee: “Welcome to [Fast Food Place]. May I take your order?”

Mom: “Yes, can I just get two small root beers, please?”

Employee: “Okay, your total is [amount]. Please pull around to the second window.”

(My mom pulls to the window and waits for them to hand us our drinks.)

Employee: *opens window and tries to hand my mom two very large cups* “I’m sorry, ma’am. Root beer doesn’t come in small. It’s still the same price, though.”


Working The Twilight Shift, Part 2

| Glendale, AZ, USA | Bosses & Owners, Coworkers, Movies & TV

(My boss, a coworker, and I are walking toward the entrance of the building and my boss has commented that it’s too hot out. My boss and I were born and raised in northern states while our coworker is a native of AZ.)

Boss: “58 degrees is the perfect temperature for me.”

Coworker: “That’s freezing!”

Me: “[Boss] runs hot all the time. He used to go most of the winter in [Previous City we lived in with plenty of snow and cold weather] without a coat.”

Coworker: “Yeah, my boyfriend is like a werewolf, too. Sharing the bed with him is like sleeping next to a furnace.”

Me: “Wait… Did you just make a Twilight reference?”

Coworker: *laughing* “Yeah, I guess I did.”

Boss: “D*** you both for making me learn something about Twilight!”
