Bear That In Mind If You Have One

| Working | February 22, 2014

(I have just returned to work after a camping trip and am telling some coworkers about it at lunch.)

Me: “In the middle of the night, I woke up to hear a bear shuffling around right outside the tent! I was glad I’d thought to put the food in the car. We heard in the morning they’d caught a bear in one of the humane bear traps. We had seen the signs up for the traps, but we didn’t think the bears were so close.”

Coworker: *rolling eyes* “That’s stupid.”

Me: “What? What’s stupid?”

Coworker: “Well, the bears are just going to read the signs and know the bear traps are up and avoid the traps.”

(Everyone stares at this coworker for a moment.)

Me: “Uh… Bears can’t read.”

Coworker: *genuinely surprised* “Really?!”
