    Cutting The Cheese 101 Has A Nice Air To It

    | New York, NY, USA |

    (One of my friends works part-time at the deli counter in a grocery store. At one point, a rather well-to-do looking–the word he used was “snooty”–woman and her not-too-bright looking son came up to the counter.)

    Woman: “I’d like one pound of muenster cheese.”

    Friend: “Very well.”

    (He proceeds to slice the cheese on the slicer, and weighs it out; it’s .97 pounds. He attempts to hand it to her.)

    Woman: “That’s NOT a pound of cheese.”

    (Slightly perturbed, he slices another slice of cheese and places it on top of the existing pile. It is not 1.02 pounds of cheese. Again, she sighs and appears indignant.)

    Woman: “Is that including the paper?”

    (He then peels the slice in half and puts the half slice on the pile; it’s .99 pounds now. At this point, the woman leans over to her less-than-brilliant-looking son, and whispers, loud enough for my friend to hear:)

    Woman: “This is why you go to college.”

    (It should be mentioned, at this point, that my friend goes to an Ivy League school.)

    (I was ringing up a old lady when another old lady in my line recognized the first lady.)

    Old Lady #1: “Oh hey! I didn’t see you there!”

    Old Lady #2: “That’s okay… I didn’t recognize you with clothes on!”

    Me: “What?!”

    All Husbands Must Be Kept On A Leash

    | Vancouver, BC, Canada |

    (Note: I was one of the quickest and most efficient cashiers at my store, and often received positive comments about this from the customers.)

    Wife: “My, you’re just whizzing along! I can’t believe how fast you are!”

    Husband: “Didn’t you know? That’s the store’s new policy. They only hire fast women.”

    Me: *chuckles good-naturedly*

    Wife: “Don’t mind my husband. We only let him out on weekends.”

    Math Is Your Friend, Part 3

    | Mankato, MN, USA |

    (We were having a sale: 4 bags of liquorish for $12. I ring each bag up individually, and it shows up as $3 a bag.)

    Customer: “I don’t want those if they come up to $3 a bag. It said they were 4 for $12.”

    Me: “But if you’re buying 4, at $3 a piece, that’s $12.”

    Customer: “No, that’s $3 a bag. I want all 4 for $12!”

    Me: “Okay…”
