    Placebo Me, Part 6

    | Canada | Food & Drink

    (I’m dropping off a drink at a party of about 10 guys and girls. They look like they wish they were on the Jersey Shore. One of the girls has ordered a double gin and tonic. Before I walk away, the girl calls me back.)

    Girl: “This drink isn’t right. I ordered a gin and tonic and this tastes like it has vodka in it…and maybe soda.”

    Me: “I’m sorry. I’ll get that fixed up for you right away.”

    (I take it to my bartender, who looks at it, pours it into a different shaped glass, then hands it back to me. I take it back to the table and give it to the customer.)

    Girl: “Ah, this is much better. Thank you!”

    Me: “You’re very welcome!”

    IYAMHEALTHY MascotGot something to get off your chest?

    As the new year begins, we all think about our priorities and how we want to change for the better. Enter IYAMHEALTHY.com, the fifth YAMMY site, where you can learn and share stories and tips on how you try to live better.

    Here’s just one of many inventive and useful tips already submitted to IYAMHEALTHY:

    “When I was a skinny girl in university, I worked as a shelver at the library: a job I loved! Then I moved a couple of times and worked in call centres since that was the 20-something thing to do. I then realized I’d gained nearly 40 pounds from my sedentary jobs. Four years ago I applied to the library again, and though I’m now 32 in a part-time entry-level position at the library, being happy, healthier and physically active is much better than working full-time on my butt. IYAMHEALTHY”

    Reading Is Addictive

    | Colorado, USA | Family & Kids

    (Two kids in the 10 to 12-year old range come to the register with 3 different marijuana-themed magazines.)

    Me: “Um, I don’t think I can sell you those.”

    Kids: “But our mom says it’s okay.”

    Me: “Is she even in the store?”

    (Their mother comes over a few minutes later and buys the magazines.)

    Mother: “As long as they’re reading, right?”

    Never Outshine A Customer

    | Canberra, Australia | Bizarre

    (I am approaching a middle-aged woman who has come into the store.)

    Me: *very cheerfully* “Hey there! How’re you today?”

    Customer: “Fine. And you?”

    Me: “I’m great actually.”

    Customer: *yells* “Stop showing off!”

    Me: *speechless*

    The Great State Of Confusion, Part 3

    | Virginia, USA | Food & Drink, Geography

    Customer: “Excuse me, I have a question about your wild Alaskan Salmon. Why does it say it’s a product of the United States on it?”

    Me: “Yes, ma’am, it is.”

    Customer: “But if it’s a product of the US, then it’s not really Alaskan salmon, right?”

    Me: *speechless* “Um, the label’s correct, ma’am.”

    Customer: “So, then it’s not from Alaska?”

    Me: “Alaska is a part of the United States. The salmon is fresh from Alaska.”

    Customer: “Oh, okay…” *rolls eyes and leaves*
