(I work in administration for a feedlot – raising cattle for beef – and while I’m not the main secretary, I do answer the phones when my coworker isn’t available to. My coworker has stepped away to use the rest room and the phone rings.)

Me: [Company Name}

Customer: [Coworker’s name]?

Me: No, this is [my name], [coworker] stepped away for a minute, can I take a message?

Customer: Oh, I must’ve called the wrong number.

Me: No, this is the right number, she’s just stepped away.

Customer: No, no I called the wrong number. *Hangs up*


Good Lord! Add A Tip!

(I’ve pulled up to the speaker to order my dinner from a fast food restaurant.)

Me: “Can I have a number three with a Coke, medium-sized?”

Employee: “Okay, so that’s a medium number three with a Coke, anything else?”

Me: “Nope, that’s it.”

Employee: “Okay, please pull ahead, your total will be… a bad number.”

(On the screen, it shows the total to be $6.66. I pull ahead to the window and give him my card.)

Employee: “I won’t say the number because it’s a bad one, but you know what it is. Do you want your receipt?”

Me: “No, thank you.”

Employee: “Good choice. Don’t want the devil chasing you down.”

A Public Service Announcement on behalf of Powerball retailers everywhere:
If you are the elected individual from your workplace or group of friends to go to the store to buy 100 tickets for the group,
#1 have your poop-in-a-group and know what you’re doing. If you don’t know what you’re doing, elect someone who does.
And #2, if the members of your group pay you singles or quarters, either pocket the cash and use your credit/debit card (many many places DO let you buy lotto with credit/debit cards) or at the very least, have the cash all neatly sorted and counted. Please do not just shove a pile of crumpled up bills at the cashier and say, “I want this many Powerballs!”

And to those who have never purchased a Powerball ticket ever and are only buying one now because it’s over a billion…do us all a favor and ask for a “QuickPick” or “X# of QuickPicks”. If you really have your heart set on picking your own numbers, go online and do your research before you go to the store. Ask the cashier for a slip to fill out, and follow the directions. If you do not wish to choose your own numbers, don’t waste time and paper filling out a slip…just ask for a QuickPick.

We’re Still Confused

(I’m a cashier at the restaurant. A family of four guys has just come up to order. The youngest is maybe nine or ten. Note that all of our burgers usually come with ketchup, mustard, onion, and pickle.)

Boy: “Can I get a double cheeseburger meal with everything but onions?”

Me: “Did you want lettuce and tomato on that, too?”

Boy: “No.”

Me: “So…”

Boy: “And no condiments.”

Me: “So… plain? Nothing on it?”

Boy: “No. No onion, no condiments. Like, sauce.”

Me: “Oh, sorry. So, just pickle, then?”

Boy: “No. Just no onion and no condiments, but everything else.”

Me: “So… lettuce, tomato, and pickle?”

Boy: “Yes!” *walks away*

For The Love Of All That Is Hole-y

(My boyfriend and I are customers at a convenience store. The cashier, who is a family friend of my boyfriend’s and is on friendly terms with us, has just finished ringing us up when she gets a phone call.)

Cashier: “Thank you for calling [Store]!”

(She listens for a moment and, as she does so, her face becomes increasingly more confused.)

Cashier: “Your… donuts had no holes in them?”

(She listens for another moment, a skeptical look on her face, before hanging up.)

Cashier: “I hope I don’t get in trouble for hanging up on them! It was a prank call. They said their donuts’ holes weren’t big enough!”
