    Not Listening Is An Occupational Hazard

    | Kelowna, BC, Canada | Bizarre, Theme Of The Month

    (When a customer comes in to do a money transfer, I have to get a piece of ID and ask them two questions.)

    Me: “I just have a couple of questions before I can pay you out your money.”

    Customer: “Okay, sure.”

    Me: “What country were you born in?”

    Customer: “Canada.”

    Me: “Okay, and what is your occupation?”

    Customer: “White.”

    Me: “White?”

    Customer: *very firmly* “Yes, white.”

    Me: “Okay… So, your occupation is white?”

    Customer: “Yes.” *thinks for a moment* “Oh, wait. What’s occupation mean again?”

    Me: “What do you do for work.”

    Customer: “Oh, I thought you meant what color I am! I work in construction!”
