    One Man’s Trash Is… Another Man’s Trash

    | Blacksburg, VA, USA |

    Hotel guest: *glances at front desk* “Do you have any newspapers?”

    Me: “If there aren’t any out on the counter, we’re all out.”

    Hotel guest: “Are you sure?”

    Me: “Yes sir, I’m sure. If I had any more, I assure you they’d be sitting there on the counter.”

    Hotel guest: ¬†”Okay, is there one in there?” *points to trashcan behind the front desk*

    Me: ¬†”Um, sir… are you asking if there are any newspapers… in the trash?”

    Hotel guest: “Yes.”

    Me: ¬†”Um… well… sir… I don’t think you want to look through here, there’s food and all sorts of gross–”

    Hotel guest: “I want to look through there for a newspaper.”

    Me: ¬†”Um, okay…”

    (He brings the trash to the front and starts digging through it.)

    Hotel guest: ¬†”UGH! This trash is DISGUSTING!” *storms off*

    (There was a gas station literally 100 feet away from the hotel. This guy would rather dig through the trash for a newspaper than walk up the street and buy one.)

    The Honest Liar

    | New Jersey, USA |

    Me: “Thank you for calling [italian restaurant], how can I help you?”

    Customer: “I’d like to make a reservation for two people.”

    Me: “I’m sorry, we only take reservations for parties of six or larger.”

    Customer: “But I want to make a reservation for two people.”

    Me, repeating: “I’m sorry, we only take reservations for parties of six or larger.”

    Customer: “Well, what if I tell you the reservation is for six people and then only show up with two?”

    Me: “Ma’am, I won’t write that reservation down.”

    Customer: *click*

    TMI Redux

    | Belgium |

    (An older woman in her 50s needed some help picking out a new MP3 player.)

    Me: “Okay, so you got any preferences?”

    Woman: “Well, do you have any that are waterproof?”

    Me: “Not really…”

    Woman: “I had one before, but it’s broken.”

    Me: “Oh, okay.”

    Woman: “Yeah, it was my own fault though, I think.”

    Me: “How come?”

    Woman: “Well, I put it in here–” *points and looks at her breasts* “–while I was at the gym. I guess I was sweating a bit too much!”

    Me: “…”

    One Loses His Allowance, The Other His Immortal Soul

    | Kane, PA, USA |

    (I was in high school working at a dollar store. It’s a small town so Sundays are usually busy after church services. This man, his wife, and his young son were in line.)

    Me: “That will be $25.30.”

    Man: “I’ve only got $15… we gave twenty at the offering today. You think you could give me a break?”

    Man’s young son: *innocently* “We didn’t give any money at church today.”

    The Joys Of Motherhood

    | Virginia, USA | Family & Kids, Top

    (A mom and little girl are waiting in line. I watch from a different line.)

    Little Girl: “Can I have this candy?”

    Mom: “No, put it back.”

    Little Girl: “But that’s not fair! That’s not fair!”

    Mom: “Cut that out!”

    Little Girl: *takes a deep breath and calms down, then turns to her mom* “I’m killing you. I’m going to kill you.”

    Mom: “…”
