    | Victoria, BC, Canada | Food & Drink, Uncategorized

    (I’m a cook in a restaurant that many tourists visit.)

    Me: *to waitress* “So, how did everyone like their food?”

    Waitress: “The table complained that the meal contains too much sauce.”

    Me: “His order gets the sauce on the side.”

    Waitress: “Yeah, he complained that he added too much.”

    | California, USA | Criminal/Illegal, Family & Kids, Top

    (I am in a public park, riding my quad. A little girl comes up and asks for a ride. Since I’m not accustomed to giving strangers rides, I politely decline. A few minutes later, an angry woman storms up.)

    Woman: “Excuse me!”

    Me: “Uh, yes?”

    Woman: “Why won’t you give my daughter a ride?! You made her cry!”

    Me: “Well, I’m sorry about that.”

    Woman: “So you’ll give her a ride?”

    Me: “No, ma’am, I’m sorry. I just don’t feel comfortable giving strangers rides.”

    Woman: “What terrible service! I am going to report you!”

    (I hear her on the phone with the police.)

    Woman: “Yes, this person refuses to give my daughter a ride on her quad. No, I don’t know her. What?! No, I am not on drugs!”

    Caller: “Baby, what are you doing? Want to come over later?”

    Me: “Excuse me?”

    Caller: *laughs* “You heard me, baby.”

    Me: “Sir, I think you may have the wrong number. This is a deli.”

    Caller: “Woah, are you serious?”

    Me: “Yes, sir.”

    Caller: “I’m so sorry!”

    Me: “It’s okay.”

    Caller: “So…do you want to come over?

    Non-Plussed With Tax

    | Washington D.C., USA | At The Checkout, Politics, Uncategorized

    Me: “Your total is $22.15 with tax.”

    Customer: “What? How can that be?”

    Me: “Well, you had one stamp at $13.95, and one candle at $6.95.”

    Customer: “That doesn’t add up!”

    Me: “Fourteen plus seven is twenty-one, and then with sales tax.”

    Customer: “I still don’t know how that adds up. Oh well…I guess math has changed with inflation and all.”
