(My university has a very long winter break which allows me to work over the holidays. I am working the Christmas season when a customer begins to make small talk.)
Customer: “What high school do you go to, sweetheart?”
Me: “I am actually in college and am just working seasonal.”
Customer: “Oh! Where do you go?”
Me: “The University of Delaware.”
Customer: “What state is that in?”
Customer: “Yes, honey, I heard you but what state is that in?”
Me: “The state is Delaware.”
Customer: “When did Delaware become a state?”
Me: “It was the first state in 1776.”
Customer: *stays quiet for the rest of the transaction*

(I work at a museum catering to children. A man and his son are examining our electronic magnifier, which has clear instructions in large type right next to it.)
Dad: *yanking and knocking on machine* “How does this stupid thing work?!”
Son: “Well, did you read the directions?”
Dad: “What directions?!”
Son: “The words under that big sign that says ‘Directions’.”
