(A woman comes into the store and walks up to the clerk.)
Customer: “Some lady parked wrong and is blocking all of the traffic in the parking lot.”
Me: “Did you see her come into this store?”
Customer: “No, I didn’t see her at all.”
Me: “Then, how do you know that it was a woman?”
Customer: “Because women always do things wrong.”
(The woman in line behind her gasps at this.)
Customer: “Well, that’s what my husband tells me.”
(I’m a checkout assistant at a supermarket working the night of Halloween. A teenager and his girlfriend come to the checkout at about 8pm with three dozen eggs.)
Me: “You’re not the ones who have been egging people in the carpark, are you?”
Customer: “Uh, no. We, um, just want to make an omelette.”
Me: “You’re making a thirty-six egg omelette? How big is your frying pan?”
Customer: “S***.” *runs out of the store*
(I work within a very large concert hall selling programmes for the concerts. A large man walks up to me.)
Me: “Hello, sir, how can I help you today?”
Man: *strong Russian accent* “Excuse me, but where is the Russian carpark?”
Me: “Pardon, sir, could you repeat that?”
Man: “Where is the Russian carpark?”
Me: “The Russian car park?”
Me: “There isn’t one. There’s just a regular car park.”
Man: “Oh.” *walks off*
Me: “911, what is your emergency?”
Caller: “I’m a bad, bad boy.”
Me: “Yes, you are. I have a squad car en route to your location. Have a good day, sir.”
