Too Much Gravy For The Brain

| 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.”

No Brains And The Bees

Customer: “Excuse me, but do you have anything I can spray on my flowers to keep the bees off them?”

Me: “You want to keep the bees off your flowers?”

Customer: “Yes. Do you sell that?”

Me: “Do you understand how flowers work?”

Not All Re-Cycling Is Good

| 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!”

Deli-cate Situation

Me: “Hello, this is–”

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.”
