Unfiltered Story #104386

(I work as a cashier for a store that employs about 20-25 people depending on the season. Our store has recently hired a few new people, one of whom is working a part of my shift. Our store also allows cashiers to keep food and drink at their registers as long as it remains out of sight. I usually bring a water bottle with me, but today I’ve filled it with cranberry juice instead of water, making it look dark red instead of clear. I go behind the main counter, set my bottle down and talk with the new hire, my manager and one of my regular coworkers. Note: I’m known around my store for having a quirky, slightly dark sense of humor.)

Coworker: *points to bottle* “What’s in here?”

Me: *deadpan and without thinking* “The blood of my enemies.”

(My manager, coworker and the new hire start laughing.)

New Hire: “I LIKE you.”

(Thankfully, most of the staff has worked with me long enough to appreciate my odd sense of humor. The new girl will fit in just fine.)
