Just Retired From His Miss-List

, | USA | Working | November 21, 2013

(A former manager that retired has returned to work part-time. A very young coworker of mine doesn’t seem to understand the situation and has been asking the former manager the same questions for about a week.)

Young Coworker: “So, why did you come back? Aren’t you retired?”

Former Manager: “Yes, but I was kind of bored. Before I retired this place was my life, so when I needed something to occupy my time again, I decided to come back part time.”

Young Coworker: “But why? This place sucks! Couldn’t you get a better job?”

Former Manager: “It’s not just the place. I’ve been working with some of these people for years. I missed them.”

Young Coworker: “I don’t get it… that doesn’t make any sense! How could you miss this place? It’s awful!”

(My young coworker stomps away and I shake my head.)

Me: “You didn’t miss her, did you?”

Former Manager: “Not in the slightest…”

A Fowl Comparison

| FL, USA | Working | November 21, 2013

(I work in the deli section of my store. Today, I’m preparing some chicken wings while my manager is breading chicken for the fryer.)

Manager: “Hey, [My Name]!”

Me: “Yeah?”

Manager: “Look at these chicken breasts!”

(She walks over carrying an enormous raw chicken breast.)

Manager: “They’re bigger than mine!”

(She points to her chest for emphasis.)

Me: “…Alrighty then.”

The Art Of Cooking Without Cooking

(My mom and step-dad are planning to cook enchiladas for dinner tonight.)

Mom: “Mija, can you cook the enchiladas tonight? I’m tired from work.”

Me: “Sure.”

Mom: “Thanks, I’ll sit in the living room if you have any questions.”

(Right after I’m done washing my hands, my mom comes into the kitchen already frying the tortillas. A few minutes later, my step-dad walks in and starts chopping onions.)

Step-Dad: “I’m gonna help out [My Name]; I don’t want you doing this by yourself.”

(I’m writing this story while both my parents are cooking the enchiladas that they had asked me to cook.)
