(I am a cashier at a local grocery store that prides itself on offering the very best customer service. I have just been talking to the coworker that is bagging for me about the fantastic ice cream sale we have going on that week, when an older lady and her very elderly mother come to my line.)

Me: Hi! How are you today?

Daughter: We’re good.

(I ring up most of their items and when I get to the ice cream I scan it and say:)

Me: See, [Coworker]! The ice cream was on sale! I told ya.

(The rest of the sale goes pleasantly and I tell them to have a great day as they leave. A few minutes later my manager asks to speak with me privately.)

Manager: A lady stopped me in the parking lot to tell me that you had called her mother a stupid old lady to [Coworker]. She said we need to fire you. Why would you say something like that?

Me: *shocked almost to the point of tears* I would NEVER talk about someone’s mother like that! I have no idea why she would say that.

(I have to go in the bathroom later to keep myself from crying, as my manager believed the customer over me. I didn’t get written up, but I did get a verbal warning. We never got to the bottom of it either. My only thought was she misheard when I was talking about the ice cream. I have never seen those ladies again.)

Love’s End-Zone

(I am eating dinner with a few coworkers. I am talking about my fiancé.)

Me: “We were actually friends for a few years before we started dating. I kinda friend-zoned him for a long time.”

Coworker: “Wow.”

Me: “What?”

Coworker: “Your fiancĂ© and Ron Weasley are the only two people I know who have ever made it out of the friend-zone.”
