Engaged With Reality

, , , , , | Romantic | November 20, 2013

(My older brother is not what you’d call the romantic type, and his girlfriend is very laid back. They’ve gone to visit her sister on the coast, and he’s taken her for a walk along her favourite beach, which shares her name. My brother stops walking and pulls out a box.)

Girlfriend: “If you get on one knee, I will punch you.”

My Brother: “So… you up for it?”

 Girlfriend: “Sure.”

(They high-fived, got some fish and chips, and called everyone. I’m going to be a bridesmaid at their wedding!)

Ah, Mothers, Part 3

, , | Right | December 4, 2009

(A customer comes in with a friend to translate for her, since she does not speak English very well.)

Me: “Hello, how may I help you today?”

Customer: “Hello. You remember me?”

Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I don’t. I see a lot of people every day.”

Customer: “Well, you remember my daughter, right?”

Me: “No, I don’t…  Sorry. Is she with you?”

Customer: “No, but you two would look good together!”

Me: *laughing* “I’m sorry, but I’m engaged.”

Customer: “You gay? I sorry! Sorry!”

Customer’s Friend: *translating* “No, he said engaged.”

Customer: “Oh, you getting married. Well, she no care if you married. She very pretty, and tall!”
