A Collegiate-Level Douchebag

Coworker: “I just had a kid coming to me and saying: ‘Ha, ha! I will be going to college later, so that I will get a better job than you guys!’”

(My coworker and I both had master grades from university. He is a qualified archeologist and I am a historian. Five years later, I still don’t have a job on my qualification level. Good luck, kid.)

Eye Can’t Believe It

(I’m female, 5’7”, very slim, have dyed black hair, and almost gray blue eyes. Lots of people in Egypt wanted just pictures of my eyes to the point where I got free stuff for selfies.

When we go to the pyramids, I am wandering around enjoying the view when a guy literally picks me up from behind and sets me in the middle of a group, and someone takes a picture. Then they walk away.)

My Aunt: “Do you know them?”

Me: “No! I don’t even know what just happened!”

(I wish I could find that picture. I’m sure I had a very confused look on my face.)

Intelligence Thrown Overboard

(I am with my family on a weekend trip. We visit a historical ship that used to be a war ship back in 1864. I am walking below deck with my dad, when he remarks upon the lift installed for physically impaired tourists visiting the ship.)

Dad: “Oh look, they had an elevator! That’s smart!”

Me: *thinking that my dad is joking* “Oh yes! They must have used it to carry the cannonballs and luggage.”

Dad: “I wonder how they powered it? Maybe it was steam-powered.”

(I realize that my dad is completely serious.)

Me: “Dad, you don’t really think they put up elevators with signs that said ‘max. 6 persons’ in 1864 do you?”

Dad: “Oh! No! Please don’t tell anyone I said that!”
