One Angry Girl, One Cup

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

(A few coworkers and I are sitting in the small back room of the restaurant/bakery where we work. We’re all friends and can insult each other without the other getting mad or offended. One of the girls wants a refill on her drink. She is known for being in a bad mood and is a self-proclaimed b****.)

Coworker #1: “[Coworker #2] can you get me a refill? I’ll give you a dollar.”

Coworker #2: *scoffs* “Get it yourself.”

Coworker #1: “But I’m tired and too lazy to do it myself.”

(She continues to whine about a refill and being tired for several minutes.)

Coworker #3: *having had enough of the whining* “Fine, I’ll do it. You don’t even have to give me a dollar.”

Coworker #1: “Fine, do it for free, then.”

(Coworker #3 takes the cup and starts walking out of the room.)

Coworker #2: *holding out his cup* “Well, since you’re already up…”

Coworker #3: “F*** you.”


Has Vroom For Improvement

| Eden Prairie, MN, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Language & Words

(A friend and I go to a bakery to get bagels. The cashiers asks for our name for the receipt. Both our names are foreign ones so we laugh at how they spell our names every time.)

Me: “Lemme see your receipt.”

Him: *laughing so hard* “Take a look at this.” *hands me the receipt*

Me: “Vroom? That’s just stupid. Do they assume you’re a race car or something?”


Working In The Land Of Nod

, | Copenhagen, Denmark | Coworkers, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I’m working the morning shift with a coworker at a bakery department in a grocery store. I’ve been at the store for a long time while my coworker is fairly new, so I usually takes charge so things get done. My coworker is filing the cake display up. They way she is doing it isn’t the easiest way, so I try to help her out. Please note that I have given her the same advice before.)

Me: “You know, it’s a lot easier if you place the sign in front before putting the cakes up.”

Coworker: “Oh, okay.”

(She continues with what she is doing. She is now putting up rather tall cakes with a lot of whipped cream on top that is easy to ruin.)

Me: “It’s going to be really difficult for you to place the sign in front of those cakes afterwards.”

Coworker: “Oh, yeah, the signs. I completely forgot about them, thank you.”

Me: “But… I just asked you about it a few minutes ago and you said okay?”

Coworker: “Yeah, I tend to just nod and say okay without really paying attention.”


Has A Choco-Lot To Choose From

| Chicago, IL, USA | At The Checkout, Employees, Ignoring & Inattentive

(I am in line to purchase a slice of cheesecake at the shop. Their case has about 30 different flavors of cheesecake to choose from. I decide on a yummy chocolate raspberry cheesecake and step up to the register.)

Me: “Hi… I would like a choco—”

Clerk: *looking annoyed and loudly drowning out the rest of my sentence* “Chocolate marshmallow, dark chocolate, chocolate raspberry, chocolate coconut, or German chocolate?”

Me: “You’d already know the answer if you’d bothered to let me finish my sentence.”


Cleans Up One Mess And Causes Another

| KS, USA | Bad Behavior, Coworkers

(It’s my first day working with my coworker at a retail store’s bakery. She’s notorious for being temperamental and throwing tantrums about ridiculous things. Today, she is baking and I’m stocking all the items on the bakery floor. We each have an L-cart for our respective tasks, and since I know she won’t be using hers for several hours at least, I borrow it to put my broken down boxes on with the intention of taking them to the baker before she starts using hers. I have disappeared into the freezer to load up my own cart with items to stock. I come out just in time to see her returning to the bakery with a third L-cart. Naturally, this is a little weird to me.)

Me: “I brought this cart for you, you know?” *motions to cart with boxes on it*

Coworker: *gruffly* “You put your boxes on it, so it’s not mine anymore.”

Me: “If it’s that important, I’ll put them on the floor. I just wanted to keep it from getting messy.”

Coworker: “Whatever. It’s FINE.”

(She storms off and I am standing there flabbergasted at the 20-year-old child I am officially working with.)
