July Theme Of The Month: Great Timing!

A Tourist Traveling To Terror Incognita

| Ashburn, VA, USA | Family & Kids, Funny Names, Movies & TV, Uncategorized

(I’m working as the ticket tearer when two young kids come up and ask me a question.)

Kid #1: “Our parents were in a different movie. They said they would be out first, but they aren’t here. It’s been a long time.”

Me: “Okay, do you know what movie they saw?”

Kid #2: “It was the terrorist, they went to see the terrorists!”

Me: “Oh! The Tourist with Johnny Depp. That won’t get out for another 10 minutes.”

Kid #1: “No it was the Terrorist! They said there was bombs and gangsters so we had to see Tangled instead.”

Me: “Well we don’t have that movie, so I’m sure it was the Tourist.”

(Kids walk away to wait. I overhear them.)

Kid #2: “What’s a tourist?”

Kid #1: “It must be the terrorists’ friends!”

(I am helping a customer scan and email important documents to his insurance company. He speaks English very poorly.)

Me: “Okay, sir. The email is sending now. It will just take a moment. There! Sent!”

Customer: “Is sent?”

Me: “Yes. Your agent should get the email any second now.”

Customer: “Oh! Am so happy! Happy like SQUIRREL!”

Judging By Their Cover

(I’m stocking the front-of-store. A couple asks me for help.)

Wife: “Hi, we’re looking for a gift for a really weird friend of ours. He’s really hard to shop for.”

Me: “Sure, what sort of thing are you looking for?”

Husband: “No, he’s really weird. He actually likes to read books.”

Wife: “Hush, honey. He works in a bookstore. He’s probably weird too.”

Miles Away From The Answer, Relatively Speaking

(I am filling out a credit application for a couple. We reach the question, ‘nearest living relative’.)

Customer: *thinking for a few moments* “About 50 miles!”

Husband: “What are we doing here?”

Wife: “What do you see all around you?”
