A Ban On The Banner, A Fan Of The (Wayne) Manor

, , , , , , | Rexburg, ID, USA | Learning | July 2, 2013

(My professor is going to have a baby boy soon.)

Professor: “Now, who can tell me what radiation is?”

Student: “It’s what made the Hulk!”

Professor: “No! We don’t talk about the Hulk. That’s bad science. He’s my least favorite Avenger, because mass doesn’t work that way. No.”

Me: “But you said you were naming your baby Bruce!”

Professor: *looks me dead in the eye* “Batman.”

Masters’ Degrees Of The Universe

, , , , , , | The Netherlands | Learning | April 26, 2013

(I have recently started a college program focusing on video game creation. Needless to say, most of the students and teachers are a little geeky. I’ve just made some drawings for a group project and need to scan them, but I am having issues getting the scanner to work.)

Me: “Excuse me, [name of teacher]. I can’t seem to get the scanner to work. Could you help me with that?”

Teacher: “Sure, let’s have a look.”

(We go back to the scanner and I put one of my drawings on the scanner bed.)

Teacher: “Now look, here’s what you do…”

(He proceeds to stand in front of the scanner, and dramatically raises his arms.)

Teacher: “BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL!”

(After a few moments of silence he calmly turns back to me while I’m left staring at him rather flabbergasted.)

Teacher: “And if that doesn’t work, you try this…”

(He then moves to the computer attached to the scanner, and shows me the menu option I’d overlooked. Within a minute, I had my scans. The man is still one of my favorite teachers.)

Better Late Than Clever, Part 2

| Melbourne, Australia | Right | August 30, 2012

(A kid of 11 or 12 approaches the ticket sales counter.)

Me: “Hi, what can I get for you?”

Kid: “Can I have a ticket for [movie]?”

Me: “Which session time were you after?”

Kid: “The one on now.”

Me: “Okay, are you sure? This session has already started, and I think about 10 minutes into the actual film.”

Kid: “No, that’s okay.”

Me: “Alright, that’ll be [price].”

Me: *shakes head*

Kid: “Oh well, it was worth a try!”

A Man Of Few Words

| England, UK | Right | August 28, 2012

(I am working in the candy bar and am finalizing a group’s order.)

Me: “What size drink do you want?”

Customer: “Sprite.”

Me: “Size?”

Customer: “Sprite.”

Me: “Size?”

Customer: “Sprite!”

Me: “Size?”

Customer: “SPRITE.”

Me: “SIZE?!”

Customer: “SPRITE!”

(At this point, the customer smashes his fist on the bench and storms off, leaving his mates looking very awkward and embarrassed. Long story short: he wanted a large.)
