Maybe He Needed Socks For The Office

| Sacramento, CA, USA | Bizarre, Crazy Requests

(I work at a counter right inside the entrance of an office supply store. One day, I see a man in a suit hurrying into the store. He looks panicked.)

Me: “Hello! What can I help—”

Customer: *looking frantically at nearby displays* “Do you guys sell socks!?”

Me: “Er… no, we sell office supplies.”

Customer: “You’re SURE?!”

Me: “I’m sure.”

Customer: “Do you know if [Store Next Door] sells socks?”

Me: “It’s a better possibility than an office supply store selling them!”

(He turned around and hurried out of the store, headed for our neighbor.)

(I’m shopping in a popular trendy store, carrying my jacket and my purse, and I’m holding a few things I want to try on when a guy walks up to me.)

Guy: “Hi. You don’t work here, do you?”

Me: “Uh, no.”

Guy: “Oh, good. What do you think of this jacket?” *holds out his arms to display the jacket he’s trying on*

Avoid A Shake With The Snake

| WA, USA | Pets & Animals, Rude & Risque

(It’s Valentine’s day and my boyfriend and I are at a restaurant. While we are waiting for a table, we go to a pet store next door where we hold a ball python. After we get seated, he gets up to go the bathroom to wash his hands. On his way, he passes a waiter that we know well.)

Waiter: “Hey, man, how’s it going?” *sticks out his hand to shake*

Boyfriend: “Sorry, man, I’d shake but I was just playing with a python.”

(It didn’t the hit him until he was in the bathroom how dirty it sounded.)
