Great Service, With Ifs And Butts

| Tampa Bay, FL, USA | Hotels & Lodging, Rude & Risque

(I am a concierge at an historic hotel in the downtown area, and a common call that I receive is to deal with is customers losing items in the rooms.)

Me: “Hello, and thank you for calling [hotel]. This is [my name]. How can I be of service?”

Caller: “Hello, my name is [name] and I stayed a few nights there last weekend, from Friday to Sunday. I believe I may have, um, left some… jewellery in the room.”

Me: “Ah, well, I would be glad to ring the maid service and have them check their lost and found. Could you describe the item that you’re looking for?”

Caller: “Well, that’s the thing. You see, I kind of want you to be discreet about this.”

Me: “Of course sir; if you wish, I will check for the item myself.”

Caller: “That would be great. Now, what I’m looking for is very expensive; it’s silver with several small diamonds in it.”

Me: “Okay, sir, but what exactly is it?”

Caller: *obviously flustered at this point* “Well, um, it’s a…” *in a whisper* “…butt plug.”

Me: *I wasn’t really sure that I heard what I just heard.* “Excuse me, sir?”

Caller: “A butt plug? You know, for…”

Me:*interrupting* “Oh, yes, yes. I understand. Let me have your contact information and I will check the lost and found. But, to be honest, it is possible that it was thrown away, considering.”

Caller: “Oh, I hope not, that thing was very expensive! To be honest, I really just need to be careful where I leave that thing.”

(I almost died holding back laughter at this point.)

Caller: “Well, if it shows up you can call me at [phone number]. Thank you, young man, you’ve been very helpful. Just let me know!”

Having A Sub-epiphany

| Montreal, QC, Canada | Extra Stupid, Food & Drink, Math & Science

(I’m standing in line behind a very well-dressed, mid-fifties lady.)

Lady: “What’s the difference between a 6-inch sub and a 12-inch sub?”

Employee: *shows a 12-inch bread* “Well, this is a 12-inch sub…”

(She then moves her hand to the middle of the bread.)

Employee: “…and this is the size of a 6-inch sub.”

(The lady acts like if she has just found out the meaning of life.)

Lady: “Oh, so a 6-inch is around half the size of a 12-inch sub!”
