Trying To Give A Dogged Defense

| NC, USA | Right | January 23, 2014

(I’m a receptionist at a small animal hospital. I take a phone call.)

Me: “[Hospital Name]. How may I help you?”

Client: “Is it possible that my dog is gay?”

Me: “Pardon?”

Client: “I think my dog is gay, and my husband is very homophobic. He says we can’t keep the dog if it is gay.”

Me: “What made you come to this conclusion, ma’am?”

Client: “He sniffs other male dogs inappropriately. It makes the whole family uncomfortable.”

Me: “Dogs often smell other dogs as a means of introduction, and they do smell each other’s hind end area to get acquainted. That is very common.”

Client: “How do I make him stop this?”

Me: “Is your dog neutered?”

Client: “No, my husband does not want him neutered. He says it’s not fair to the dog.”

Me: “Unaltered dogs can present these behaviors more frequently and sometimes can be more aggressive. It may help if you had him neutered.”

Client: *yelling to her husband* “She says the dog won’t be gay anymore if we chop his balls off…” *a few moments of bickering between the couple* “Well, we can’t keep the dog if he’s gay, so when can we get him neutered?”

Me: “Ma’am, neutering your dog will not stop him from sniffing other dogs. I was just suggesting that neutering him may calm him down and the behavior would be less frequent.”

Client: “Can you just tell my husband that if we go through with the surgery that he won’t be gay anymore? I’m afraid he is going to make me give him up. He is terribly afraid of gays! He won’t even let the dog sleep in the bed until this gets figured out…”

With Great Bacon, Comes Great Responsibility, Part 11

, | Red Deer, AB, Canada | Right | January 23, 2014

(I am taking orders on drive thru.)

Me: “Hi, welcome to [Restaurant]. What can I get for you?”

Customer: “Hey! So, I hear you guys have hickory-smoked bacon! This is true, right? You have bacon?”

Me: “Yes, we do. It can be added to any sandwich or baked goo—”

Customer: “No, no, I just want bacon. Bacon!”

Me: “Just bacon alone?”

Customer: “Yeah! Lots of bacon!”

Me: “So, would 10 slices be okay?”

Customer: “No, make it 20! 30! Lots of bacon!”

(I give him his total and he drives up to the window. I go wait by soup and sandwich for his order to be ready.)

Coworker: “30 slices of bacon on the side? On the side of what?”

Me: “…Just bacon. 30 slices of bacon.”

(My coworker stares blankly at me before wrapping 30 slices of bacon in a sandwich bag and giving it to me, shaking her head. I take the bacon to the window and my other coworker gives it to him.)

Customer: “Thanks, man! Gotta have my bacon!” *drives off*
