Not Worming Out Of This One

| CA, USA | Right | June 30, 2013

(I am on the phone with a customer.)

Customer: “What’s the best soil for my vegetable garden?”

Me: “[Brand] planting mix is an excellent soil for veggies. It’s all organic, and has chicken manure, kelp meal, and worm castings.”

Customer: “Worms? Like… worms?”

Me: “Earthworms, actually. Their castings… worm poop. It’s really good for the soil.”

Customer: “So the worms would be in my vegetables?”

Me: “No, it’s just their castings; they’ll be in the soil.”

Customer: “So when we eat the vegetables will there be worms?”

Me: “No… no worms, just their poop in the soil.”

Customer: “Yes, but will the worms be in our vegetables when we eat them?”

Me: “No… no worms.”

Customer: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes!”

Customer: “Ohhhhh kayyyyyyy.” *click!*

Less Charge, Less Thanks

| TN, USA | Right | June 30, 2013

(A coworker and I have just set up the sales sign in the store. We are discussing which signs are going to give us the most problems.)

Coworker: “The ones up front say everything is 30% off, but when I scanned it at the till, it’s 50% off.”

Me: “At least it’s not the other way around. Someone can have a pleasant surprise at the register.”

Manager: “Did you two see any of the signs for up front?”

Coworker: “Yeah, I put up the ones corporate sent us.”

Manager: “Did they say 50% off?”

Coworker: “No, they all said 30% off, but everything is ringing up at 50% off.”

Manager: “Oh. I just had a lady accuse me of false advertising.”

Coworker: “What? But she got the 50% off. Why would she complain? She got a better deal than the sign said.”

Manager: “I’m going to go make new signs…”

The Mother Should Be Booked

| Edmonton, AB, Canada | Right | June 29, 2013

(I am in high school, and earn money by paging in a library in a low-income area. Pages do the ‘grunt work’ of a library—mostly putting away books and cleaning up after people. I spend a lot of time in the children’s section, and talk a lot with the kids.)

Seven-Year-Old Girl: *showing me a picture book* “This book is really cool!”

Me: “Is it? What’s it about?”

Seven-Year-Old Girl: “It has dragons, and horses, and a bad guy, and fighting!”

Me: “Wow, that sounds like a pretty good book. Are you going to check it out and take it home to read?”

Seven-Year-Old Girl: “No, I can’t.”

Me: “Why not?”

Seven-Year-Old Girl: “My mommy can’t read, and she says that she doesn’t want us to read. She says that books are dumb!”
