They’ll Never Rear The End Of This

| Alberta, Canada | Working | October 21, 2012

(My friend’s car gets rear ended and he brings it into a shop to get fixed. The day he’s suppose to pick up his car, he gets a phone call and this exchange occurs.)

Mechanic: “Hello, [my friend’s name]. This is [name] from the shop, and unfortunately your car’s going to take another week to be repaired.””

My Friend: “But you just called me an hour ago saying I could pick it up today. May I ask why?”

Mechanic: “You are never going to believe what happened. We had just completely fixed up your car when one of  our guys pulled out of his parking spot and rear ended your car.”

My Friend: “So, my car was rear ended again?”

Mechanic: *sheepishly* “Yes. The repairs will be covered by us, sorry!”

Mistaken About Their Own Mistakes

, | New Jersey, USA | Working | October 21, 2012

(My boyfriend and I frequent a local burger place, to the point that some of the cashiers know to put “No pickles, heavy onions” on the order before we even say it. Everyone seems to like us except this one shift manager who has always had a sour puss on her face.)

Me: *to the shift manager* “So, four cheeseburgers, no pickles and heavy onions, and four bacon burgers, no pickles heavy onions, please.”

My Boyfriend: “Oh and two value sodas.”

Me: “Oh yeah. Thanks, I forgot!”

(The shift manager reads the cost, which I think it sounds a bit low, but figure I just miscalculated. However, when we get the receipt, it says four cheeseburgers, four regular burgers.)

Me: “Oh, sorry, I wanted four bacon burgers, not regular burgers.”

Shift Manager: “You know, every time you two are in here, you act like you NEVER make a mistake!”

My Boyfriend: “…Excuse me?!”

Shift Manager: “Hey, don’t you yell at me! If you keep up that tone of voice, I’m going to have to ask you to leave!”

Me: “I’ve got a better idea: how about you cancel the order and give us our money back, because we’re leaving anyway?”

Shift Manager: “Fine, whatever! I just said, ‘Sorry, I made a mistake!'”

Me: “No, that’s the OPPOSITE of what you just said!”

Pole Troll

| Westminster, MD, USA | Related | October 21, 2012

(Given our passions for gaming and fantasy, my husband and I always joked about how we would raise über-geek kids. I see my 3-year-old daughter swinging around a flexible pole from a play tent.)

Me: “Don’t swing that around; you’ll break something.”

Daughter: “But, I’m practicing!”

Me: “Not with that, you aren’t. You’re too little to be playing with that.”

(My daughter stamps her foot and puts her hands on her hips.)

Daughter: “I am too ready!”

(I take the pole away from her, and turn to put it away. As I turn my back to her, she crosses her arms and glares at me.)

Daughter: “…troll.”
