No Point Crying Over Maced Milk

, , | Right | April 29, 2017

I’m working a closing shift in a department by the front door. Our store is 24-hour but my department is not. I see a young man come in with his two female friends. The man is stumbling and very nearly knocks over a wine display. One of the female friends asks me where they can find the milk. I direct them to the dairy section and continue mopping.

About five minutes later, I gather my trash and wheel it back to the dumpster; due to the placement of my department in the store, I have to walk through the entire store to get to the back.

When I pass the dairy section, another customer stops me and alerts me that a young man has puked in the freezer section. I thank them for letting me know, and tell the night manager and the dairy clerk as I continue towards the back.

As I throw my garbage in the dumpster I hear the night manager and dairy clerk enter the back room and page another clerk to mop the freezer aisle. The two men are shaking their heads in exasperation.

Apparently, the young man from earlier had been maced in the face, and his female friends had grabbed a bottle of milk and thrown it in his face, in an attempt to “help.” The man was very high and became belligerent with the manager when he (the manager) offered assistance. The group had to be escorted off the premises and next door to the immediate care clinic. Maybe next time they’ll let a professional look at him first instead of trying to solve the issue (creatively) themselves…

A Good Laugh Is Nothing To Sneeze At

, | Related | April 26, 2017

When my baby brother was six months old, he got startled easily. That was sometimes a problem for my mom since he was breastfed, and if something startled him while he was nursing, he’d bite her by accident. She could avoid most stuff that would scare him, but every so often she would sneeze, and that really freaked him out.

Her solution? Fake-sneezing at him to get him used to the noise. When she felt a real sneeze coming on while he was nursing, she would say, “Aachoo. Aachoo.” And then actually sneeze. It does sound silly, and it made the rest of the family laugh, but it worked. He stopped freaking out and biting her, and everyone was happy.

Fast forward to a month later. The family is all just hanging around, and suddenly my brother goes, “Tchoo.” Everyone looks at him, and he grins ear to ear and goes “Tchoo” again. At the age of seven months, he had remembered how much everyone laughed at my mom’s fake sneezing and learned how to do it himself so he could make us laugh, too!

Some Customers Are Complete Trash

| Right | April 24, 2017

I work part-time at a well-known fast food restaurant. After a busy lunch period, I’m in the dining room cleaning up. The floor is absolutely filthy after having some 2500 people through the doors in around two hours or so.

After changing bins and clearing tables, I sweep and mop the entire floor. While I am doing this, a female customer is watching me from a nearby table with her two small children. They eat their meals and linger for a while, with the mother continuing to watch me and the two children playing with the toys that came with their meals.

It takes me about 45 minutes to finish sweeping and mopping the floor. I finally finish the last corner and just as I’m putting the mop back in the bucket, the woman stands up with her two kids and begins to walk towards me carrying their tray. I am standing near the bins, so I think nothing of it.

They stopped next to the bins, and the mother made eye contact with me, pulled the lid off her almost full large soda and poured the entire thing on the floor, never breaking eye contact. She then dropped the cup, lid, and straw, as well as the entire tray of rubbish, onto the ground into the soda, and then proceeded to walk over it, and out of the store. I was too shocked to even respond.

Not A Co-Ed Bed

, | Learning | April 21, 2017

I attend a women’s college for my undergraduate degree, and understood before moving in that there are some pretty simple rules in place for the dorms concerning guests (i.e. boys). Unfortunately, there are many freshmen students who have trouble either understanding or following the rules. I don’t mind them, but apparently some girls thought it is more important to sneak their boyfriends into the dorms instead of going three miles down the road to the co-ed state college.

Then came the night when the fire department showed up at 1:30 am, because a freshman girl tried to hide her boyfriend in her fold-up bed and he got stuck inside. They had to completely remove the bed from the wall to get him out!

Libraries: The New Google!

I work in a library.

A guy from Florida called because he found a painting in his mother in law’s garage and wanted to know what kind of turkey was in it.
