    Me: “Welcome to [movie theater].¬†Can I help you?”

    Customer: “Two for [rated R movie].”

    Me: “Can I see your ID, please?”

    Customer: ¬†”I don’t have any.”

    Me: “Sorry, I can’t sell you any tickets.”

    Customer: “But I’m 17! I’m allowed to see it!”

    Me: “Not without an ID you aren’t! And even if you had an ID, I could only sell you one. You have to be 21 to buy more than one.”

    Customer: “I can’t believe this! Look, I drove here today!”

    (At this point he flashes daddy’s Mercedes keys in my face to “prove” he drove here.)

    Me: “So, let me get this straight. You drove your Mercedes here without any form of ID, including a driver’s license?”

    Customer: “YEAH! WHAT OF IT?!”

    Me: ¬†”I’m sure the Raleigh Police Officer standing right behind you would love to have a word with you.”

    Oh, Give Me A Home Where The Jumbo Shrimp Roam

    | Canada |

    Me: “Can I help you with anything sir?”

    Customer: “Yes, I’m looking for some shrimp.”

    Me: “Shrimp is in the seafood department, right over there.”

    Customer: “See, I don’t want to boil them, I just want to barbecue them.”

    Me: “Okay, well, they should be in the seafood department.”

    Customer: “But I want to barbecue them. Could you get me a pound of shrimp?”

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, we don’t have shrimp in the deli.”

    Customer: “Why don’t you have any?”

    Me: “We only have deli meat and cheese in the deli. The seafood department has shrimp, just over there.”

    Customer: “Why?”

    Me: “Because shrimp are seafood… they live in the sea.”

    Customer: “… really?”

    Please, No More

    Zoo visitor: *points to cage* “Ain’t that one of them brown ree-cluse spiders?”

    Me: “No, sir, that’s a local spider called a fishing spider. Brown recluses are much much smaller and–”

    Zoo visitor: “Yeah it is. That there’s a brown ree-cluse spider. I had one in my basement; exterminator told me it was a brown ree-cluse.”

    Me: “Brown recluses really don’t get this far east. Plus they’re much much smaller.”

    Zoo visitor: “HONEY! Come over here a sec. Ain’t this one of them ree-cluse spiders?”

    Zoo visitor’s wife: “Yep! Just like that one from the basement.”

    Zoo visitor: “Honey, tell ‘em what we did with that spider that night when we was makin’ love!”

    (I did not stay to hear the rest. I was too terrified.)

    Why Everything Seems To Take Forever

    Library patron: “I need to get on a computer.”

    Me: “I’m sorry… as the sign on the sign-up computer says, the entire computer system is down.”

    Library patron:“Oh, I just need to check my email.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but it’s everything.”

    Library patron: “Well, could you look up a book for me?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I guess I’m not clear. The ENTIRE system is down. We can’t do anything that involves the internet and that includes printing things out. We even use VOIP phones so we can’t call out.”

    Library patron: “Oh. Well, just look up what I have checked out right now, and tell me when it’s due.”

    Me: “I can’t do that, either.”

    Library patron: “Can you check my email for me?”

    Me: “No, ma’am. We use the same system.”

    Library patron: “But, I saw you typing!”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am, I’m working on a report on the word processor. This is something that doesn’t use the Internet.”

    Library patron: “Well, when will the computers be fixed?”

    Me: “We don’t know.”

    Library patron: “Why?”

    Me: “Because it’s broken. If we knew what was wrong, we’d be fixing it.”

    Library patron: “Does this happen often?”

    Me: “Nope.”

    Library patron: “So you are saying it’s just a coincidence that the first time I need to use the computer, the system is down?”

    Me: “Well, yes.”

    Library patron: “Do you actually do anything useful here?”

    Me: “Well, normally I’d be troubleshooting the problem with the system, but for the past 10 minutes, I’ve been having to answer your questions about it.”

    Library patron: *stomps off*
