    Numbers Don’t Lie

    | Perth, Western Australia, Australia | At The Checkout, Criminal/Illegal

    (I’m a checkout assistant at a supermarket working the night of Halloween. A teenager and his girlfriend come to the checkout at about 8pm with three dozen eggs.)

    Me: “You’re not the ones who have been egging people in the carpark, are you?”

    Customer: “Uh, no. We, um, just want to make an omelette.”

    Me: “You’re making a thirty-six egg omelette? How big is your frying pan?”

    Customer: “S***.” *runs out of the store*

    Where The Car Parks You

    | London, UK |

    (I work within a very large concert hall selling programmes for the concerts. A large man walks up to me.)

    Me: “Hello, sir, how can I help you today?”

    Man: *strong Russian accent* “Excuse me, but where is the Russian carpark?”

    Me: “Pardon, sir, could you repeat that?”

    Man: “Where is the Russian carpark?”

    Me: “The Russian car park?”

    Man: “Yes!”

    Me: “There isn’t one. There’s just a regular car park.”

    Man: “Oh.” *walks off*

    An Invitation Nonetheless

    , | Jacksonburg, OH, USA | Top

    Me: “911, what is your emergency?”

    Caller: “I’m a bad, bad boy.”

    Me: “Yes, you are. I have a squad car en route to your location. Have a good day, sir.”
