    Goldilocks Is Better Off With The Bears

    | Toronto, Canada | Top

    (Note: We sell a mosquito tent for babies that is very compact and light.)

    Customer: “Hi, I have a question about your baby tent?”

    Me: “Sure, what would you like to know?”

    Customer: “Can the tent withstand a bear attack?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Customer: “Well, let’s say we go camping and my husband and I are sun tanning on the other side of the lake. If a bear comes into the campsite, will the tent protect my child?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, I’m confused. Who is in the campsite with your baby while you are on the other side of the lake?”

    Customer: “Nobody. Why?”

    The Fine Art Of Peevesdropping

    | Oshkosh, WI, USA |

    (Note: My coworker is my friend, and we usually pick on each other in good fun.)

    Me, to coworker: “Your shirt is all wrinkled! Maybe you should show up to work looking decent!”

    Mistakenly overhearing customer: “Well, maybe you should shove it!”

    Tall Tales Vs. Turning Tail

    | Florida, USA |

    (I work at a visitor’s center on a refuge, which is by a large pond. As this is Florida, we naturally have alligators. A visitor approaches the help desk.)

    Visitor: “You have a fake alligator outside!”

    Coworker: “No, sir. It’s real.”

    Visitor: “There’s no way that’s real!”

    Coworker: “Sir, all our gators are real.”

    Visitor: “I’ll prove it!”

    (My coworker follows the visitor outside. Suddenly, the visitor goes up to an alligator resting along the side of the pond and grabs it by the tail.)

    Alligator: *dives into the water*

    Visitor: *face goes white*

    Downgraded Membership

    | Atlanta, GA, USA |

    (Note: I’m 19 and go to college.)

    Customer: “Oh, I think you have class with my daughter, Kayla.”

    Me: “I don’t think I know her. What year is she?”

    Customer: “10th.”

    Me: “Huh?”

    Customer: “10th grade.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m in college.”

    Customer: “Sure you are, sweetie.” *winks*

    Whipped For The Cream

    | MD, USA | Top

    (A male customer comes into my cafe and spends five minutes staring at the baked goods before finally coming up to order.)

    Customer: “Well, there’s no manly way to say this: I want a cream puff.”
