He Can’t Face The Music

| VA, USA | Romantic | October 21, 2012

(My boyfriend is a pretty tough-looking guy, long hair, brawny, tattooed arms, the works, even though I know he’s a secret softie. After endless begging, I finally convince him to watch my favorite movie, ‘Moulin Rouge’, with me. I can tell from the beginning he’s unimpressed. Frequent yawns, rubbing his eyes, slouching down further and further on the couch, until finally his head begins to dip to his chest.)

Me: “I can tell you’re not into this, babe. Let’s watch something else.”

Boyfriend: *in a thick, tear-choked voice* “No, this is fine. I mean, I already know how it’s going to end, I just… want to see… how it ends.”

(I made sure to act like I was so absorbed in the ending, that I didn’t notice the tears streaming down his cheeks.)

Having A Sub-epiphany

| Montreal, QC, Canada | Right | October 20, 2012

(I’m standing in line behind a very well-dressed, mid-fifties lady.)

Lady: “What’s the difference between a 6-inch sub and a 12-inch sub?”

Employee: *shows a 12-inch bread* “Well, this is a 12-inch sub…”

(She then moves her hand to the middle of the bread.)

Employee: “…and this is the size of a 6-inch sub.”

(The lady acts like if she has just found out the meaning of life.)

Lady: “Oh, so a 6-inch is around half the size of a 12-inch sub!”

The Great State Of Confusion, Part 4

| Baltimore, MD, USA | Right | October 20, 2012

(We provide a legal advice service, but we do not take calls about criminal matters.)

Client: “Yes, hello. I live in Mississippi, and I’m calling because my husband got arrested and I—”

Me: “Ma’am, I am very sorry to cut you off, but I do need to let you know we do not provide advice for criminal matters.”

Client: “Oh. Um, can you tell me someone who might?”

Me: “I do not have any numbers to give you, but you’ll want to contact a criminal attorney in your state.”

Client: “Can you give me a number for that?”

Me: “I’m sorry, our office is in Maryland. I do not have any numbers for your area.”

Client: “Well, I’m in Mississippi, but he was in Georgia. Can you give me a number for a lawyer?”

Me: “Again, I’m sorry, but we’re in Maryland. I do not have any numbers for down that way.”

Client: “Can’t you just look in the phone book and give me the number for the police department?”

Me: “No, ma’am. We’re in Maryland. I do not have a Georgia phone book.”

Client: “What about the number for information?”

Me: “I do not have that.”

Client: “You don’t have the information number for your state?”

Me: *speaking a little more obviously* “No. That is not our state, ma’am.”

Client: “Well what state are you in?”

Me: *sigh*
