Not The Brightest Lantern In The Box

| Right | February 6, 2016

(The restaurant where I work has oil lanterns on each table, and they are lit everyday at four pm before we lower the lights for atmosphere. I am lighting all the lanterns. I approach a table and launch into my standard explanation.)

Me: “Hi there. Excuse me, I’m just going to lean in here and light the lantern real quick.”

Customer: “Is that in your job description?”

Me: *confused* “Um, yes.”

Customer: “Oh, okay.”

Me: *trying to make a joke* “I don’t just go around randomly lighting lanterns!”

Customer: “REALLY?!”

(The customer seemed to think I was only lighting the lanterns because I felt like it. I have no idea why!)
