Too Lazy To Come Up With A Reason

| San Antonio, TX, USA | Coworkers, Lazy/Unhelpful

(It’s close to the end of my shift and a coworker and I are cleaning one of the bread making machines. I’m off tomorrow and looking forward to it. We are allowed to trade days off of switch shifts on occasion with manager approval.)

Coworker: “What days are you off?”

Me: “Tomorrow and Wednesday. Why?”

Coworker: “What time do you come in Thursday?”

Me: “12. What’s up?”

Coworker: “I’m off Wednesday and Thursday. Do you want to trade Tuesday to be off Thursday?”

Me: *thinking about it*

(I don’t really want to but if something important came up and she needed the day off then I was willing to do it.)

Me: “I guess…”

Coworker: “If you don’t want to then it’s fine. I just wanted tomorrow off. I feel like being lazy.”

Me: “So you’re asking me to delay my weekend just because you want to start yours early?”

Coworker: “Pretty much.”

Me: “In that case, no. If it was something important, I would have said yes.”

(At least she was honest!)

So THAT’S What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted

| MA, USA | Food & Drink, Holidays

(Our bakery offers heart-shaped cookies in celebration of the Valentine season. One morning, we arrive to set up everything for the public and discover our baker has festively iced all the valentines, except for a few that obviously fell apart during the bake. She’s left us a cheerful note indicating these pieces are “Snacks!”)

Manager: *bemused* “I… I don’t even know what to say about this.”

Baker: “I guess today we feast on broken hearts!”

A Raggedy Sale

| San Antonio, TX, USA | Coworkers, Money, Pranks

(I’m working at the pie table and have a bag of cleaning rags under the table. Every now and then someone comes and ‘steals’ towels out of my bag so I decide to have some fun with the next one.)

Me: “Just to let you know, those are a dollar apiece.”

Coworker: “Okay. Put it on my tab! I’ll pay you Friday.”

(Comes back a few minutes later.)

Coworker: “I need a few more. Is there a discount if I buy in bulk?”

Me: “Yes. They’re still one for $1 or five for $5.”

Coworker: *thinks for a moment* “That’s a terrible sale! I’m never shopping here again and going somewhere that has better deals.”

(By this point I’m laughing too hard to respond.)

Not Exactly Showered With Compliments

| San Antonio, TX, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners

(It’s the end of the day and we’re cleaning the floors. The manager accidentally splashes me with the soapy water he’s squeegeeing.)

Me: “Hey, I already took my shower for this month! I don’t need another!”

Manager: *without missing a beat* “Yeah, but the difference is this one has soap!”
