Hopefully The Next Supply Will Live Long And Prosper

| Working | January 21, 2014

(I work in the deli section of my store. Lately, we have been having trouble getting supplies in stock.)

Me: “Where are all the trash bags?”

Coworker: “We don’t have any.”

Me: “Are you serious? Again?!”

Coworker: “Yup.”

Me: “I’m going to head over to the bakery and see if they have any.”

Coworker: “Not gonna work.”

Me: “Why not?”

Coworker: “[Baker] is working today. You know how he is. He never helps anybody out.”

Me: “I know how to handle him. Trust me.”

(The baker who’s working today happens to be a huge ‘Star Trek’ fan. I head over to the bakery and don’t see him as I proceed to grab a few trash bags, but then he shows up as I’m about to leave.)

Baker: “What the h*** do you think you’re doing?”

Me: “Getting bags.”

Baker: “No, you’re not. Put them back.”

Me: “We have zero bags at the deli.”

Baker: “Well, I have almost zero bags here. I can’t let you have any.”

Me: *deadpan, holding up a Vulcan salute* “It is only logical. The needs of the deli outweigh the needs of the few.”

(A few seconds pass.)

Baker: “HA HA! All right, all right. Take your stinkin’ bags.”

(I can still hear him cracking up as I walk away.)
