    A-moooo-sing Explanations

    | Pensacola, FL, USA |

    (As a grocery store bagger, I often help people load their items into their cars. Tonight, as I walk out the door with a customer, she notices milk all over the parking lot.)

    Lady: *casually, without missing a beat* “Oh, a cow exploded…”

    The Great State Of Confusion, Part 6

    | New Jersey, USA | Geography, History

    (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?”

    Me: “Delaware.”

    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*

    This Apple Fell Far From Its Tree, Part 2

    | Boston, MA, USA | Extra Stupid, Family & Kids

    (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’.”
