The Internot

| Online | Extra Stupid, Technology

(I work for a internet retailer so all of our sales come via a website. We don’t operate any physical store locations.)

Me: “Thanks for calling [store name]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “I need to place an order.”

(I take the caller’s order, and get to the part where I need her personal information.)

Me: “…and may I have your email address, please?”

Caller: “No.”

Me: “Well, that’s how your receipt and shipping information will be given to you.”

Caller: “I don’t like giving it out. I don’t understand why you need it. Why can’t you just mail it to me?”

Me: “The receipt and shipping information are emailed to you through our store’s sales system. It’s something that happens automatically. We will not sell it or abuse it in any way.”

Caller: “Well, that’s stupid! What if I don’t have an email address? What do you do for your customers who don’t have a computer?”

Me: “Being an internet retailer, we haven’t had much of a problem with that.”

A Streetcar Named Cheshire

| Toronto, ON, Canada | Bizarre, Pets & Animals, Theme Of The Month, Transportation

(I’m taking my cat in a carrier to the vet. I don’t have a car, so I’m taking the streetcar; it’s mostly empty except for an older woman.)

Older Woman: “You go to vet?”

Me: “Yeah, it’s time for my girl’s checkup.”

Older Woman: “May I see?”

Me: “Sure.”

Older Woman: *pets my cat* “Oh, such soft fur. What dog?”

Me: “Oh, she’s not a dog. She’s a cat.”

Older Woman: “Rare to see such soft dog. Good brushing!”

Me: “Again, thank you, but she’s a cat.”

Older Woman: “And well behaved! Dogs bark!”

Cat: “Meow!”

Older Woman: “You and dog have good day!”

Me: *to my cat* “Sorry girl, but you’re a dog today.”
