No Bloody Sensitivity Anywhere

| New York, USA | Health & Body

(I work at a bar and grill on the breakfast shift. I have just badly cut my finger and have blood running down my hand. As I am running to the kitchen for first aid, a customer approaches me.)

Customer: “Excuse me, can I get a glass of orange juice please?”

Me: “Ma’am, can I come right back to you? I need to take care of this.”

(I raise my hand up to show her that my hand is bleeding all over.)

Customer: “The service here is terrible. I want my orange juice!”

Me: “Ma’am, I really need to go take care of this.”

Customer: “Forget it!” *storms out without paying for her meal*

Wherever Knowledge Is Distributed

| Nova Scotia, Canada | School

Me: “Can I help you?”

Student: “I can’t find my professor’s office.”

Me: “Do you have an office number?”

Student: “Yeah. It’s 412.”

Me: “Well, that’s just down the hallway.”

Student: “I tried. That’s not his office.”

Me: “Is he a political science professor or a modern languages professor?

Student: “Neither. Geology.”

Me: “Are you sure he’s in this building?”

Student: “No.”

Me: “What building is he in?”

Student: “I don’t know.”

Me: “There are lots of buildings on campus.”

Student: “I know.”

Me: “What made you think it was this one?”

Student: “I don’t know…”

Placebo Me, Part 6

| Canada | Food & Drink

(I’m dropping off a drink at a party of about 10 guys and girls. They look like they wish they were on the Jersey Shore. One of the girls has ordered a double gin and tonic. Before I walk away, the girl calls me back.)

Girl: “This drink isn’t right. I ordered a gin and tonic and this tastes like it has vodka in it…and maybe soda.”

Me: “I’m sorry. I’ll get that fixed up for you right away.”

(I take it to my bartender, who looks at it, pours it into a different shaped glass, then hands it back to me. I take it back to the table and give it to the customer.)

Girl: “Ah, this is much better. Thank you!”

Me: “You’re very welcome!”

IYAMHEALTHY MascotGot something to get off your chest?

As the new year begins, we all think about our priorities and how we want to change for the better. Enter IYAMHEALTHY.com, the fifth YAMMY site, where you can learn and share stories and tips on how you try to live better.

Here’s just one of many inventive and useful tips already submitted to IYAMHEALTHY:

“When I was a skinny girl in university, I worked as a shelver at the library: a job I loved! Then I moved a couple of times and worked in call centres since that was the 20-something thing to do. I then realized I’d gained nearly 40 pounds from my sedentary jobs. Four years ago I applied to the library again, and though I’m now 32 in a part-time entry-level position at the library, being happy, healthier and physically active is much better than working full-time on my butt.

Reading Is Addictive

| Colorado, USA | Family & Kids

(Two kids in the 10 to 12-year old range come to the register with 3 different marijuana-themed magazines.)

Me: “Um, I don’t think I can sell you those.”

Kids: “But our mom says it’s okay.”

Me: “Is she even in the store?”

(Their mother comes over a few minutes later and buys the magazines.)

Mother: “As long as they’re reading, right?”
