He Be-leafs In Luck

| USA | Romantic | October 27, 2013

(My fiancé is living with is parents while he goes to school. I often come over to visit when I get time off work.)

Mom: “Hey [fiancé], can you take the dogs out?”

Fiancé: “Yeah sure, be right back.”

(He gives me a quick kiss and leaves. Normally he would be back within 10 minutes, but he’s been gone for longer. I decide to investigate, and catch him sitting in the yard.)

Me: “What are you doing?”

Fiancé: “I was looking for a four-leaf clover to bring you, but I can’t find one.”

(We sat out on the lawn with the dogs until we found one. I still have it too.)

These Boots Were Made For Running

| Manchester, England, UK | Romantic | October 27, 2013

(I work in a high end boutique, and have been talking to woman about an £1,100 pair of high heels that she’s had her eye on for a while, and has finally saved enough money to treat herself to. I’m just ringing her up, when we hear a rising yell from outside. Everyone in the vicinity turns to look at the door. A man comes sprinting through, skidding as he scrambles through the door.)


Woman: “Oh, my God! What are you doing? How did you even know I was here?”

(The man finally comes to a stop, and doubles over panting, red faced and completely out of breath.)

Man: “[Name] called… said you were here… ran from [other side of town]… already bought shoes… for anniversary…”

Woman: “It’s sweet that he put so much effort into making sure I don’t buy them again, but I really wish he wouldn’t half kill himself in the process.”

(We manage to eventually bring him around, and she takes him home. The day after, she comes back to spend almost as much on lingerie as her anniversary gift to him!)

Has Snow Business Feeling The Cold

| NY, USA | Learning | October 27, 2013

(I have a younger cousin who was adopted from Russia as a baby. Living in upstate New York in elementary school, he is told to bring snow gear so that his class can play in the snow. Of course, he has forgotten to tell his mother.)

Teacher: “[Cousin], where are your snow pants?”

Cousin: “I forgot them.”

Teacher: “But you can’t play in the snow without them!”

Cousin: *glares* “I’m from SIBERIA!”

All Buttoned Up And Going Nowhere

| Madison, WI, USA | Right | October 26, 2013

(A guest calls from the elevator to the front desk.)

Guest: “Um yeah. Your elevator is not working.”

Me: “What seems to be wrong, ma’am?”

Guest: “It won’t move anywhere.”

Me: “Okay, I will be right down to check it out.”

(I go to the elevator. The guest is on the first floor, hitting the ‘1’ button.)

Me: “Ma’am, you are on the first floor hitting the first floor button.”

(She was quite embarrassed. I can’t say I blame her!)
