22 Times Religious Customers Went Biblical In The Store

| Right | June 6, 2020

Dear readers,

Some numbers are considered lucky. Some numbers are universally regarded as unlucky. For most of us, that extends to how we choose our lottery numbers or bets, or to how many M&Ms we eat in a session. (This editor’s lucky number is however many M&Ms are in the bag, incidentally.)

But some people take it a little further; some buildings with multiple floors skip from the twelfth straight to the fourteenth to avoid the unlucky number thirteen, and some people refuse to make a purchase that adds up to $6.66 to avoid the unlucky “mark of the Beast.”

Here is a collection of 22 stories of people who took a number from the Book of Revelations a hair too seriously.

 

Get Behind Me, School Supplies! – Clearly, the devil is invested in your child’s future, too!

Good Lord! Add A Tip! – Should’ve sprung for a large Coke, instead.

Devilishly Delicious – The upsized fries are definitely worth a deal with the devil.

A Price For The Devil To Pay, Part 6 – It pays (about seven bucks) to pay attention to those who’ve gone before you.

Good Lord, Donate! – Maybe the devil’s not such a bad guy after all?

On A Holy Gum Crusade – This cashier created a sticky situation.

The Devil’s Pay Book – If she hadn’t bought the keychain, the surgeon would’ve forgotten how to operate!

Buy A Bible Or You’ll Have The Devil To Pay – I think the devil’s evil schemes are backfiring…

The Unholy Receipt – At least the cashier and the customer were on the same page for once.

You’ll Have The Devil To Pay, Part 2 – Oh, deer. That’s just plain uncomfortable.

Deliver Your Pizzas Or You’ll Have The Devil To Pay – If only they’d had an order for Mr. Crowley, they could’ve kept their soul.

A New Way To Learn Fractions – Math class can often feel like Hell…

Number Of The Beastly Coincidences – This customer takes things in the other direction. Still weird.

A Price For The Devil To Pay, Part 3 – You’re cursed both coming and going!

You’ll Have The Devil To Pay – Six-hour shifts, six dollars for drinks, and six shades of crazy…

Sinfully Delicious, Part 2 – For the literal love of God, just buy a blessed cookie!

From Lucifer To Lucky – Well, that took a lucky turn!

The Devil Is In The Ridiculous Details – Whatever you have to tell your friends to get them out of the store…

Satan Needs The Nougat – Sounds like Satan’s on your side, kiddo!

Armageddon Shopping List: Holy Water, Crucifix, Tic Tac – What would possess a person to behave this way?

Just Another Day At Work – Sometimes you have to fight crazy with crazy.

Cookies Are The Devil – Here’s a story with a sweet ending to round things off.

23 Times When Having To Work Overtime Should Have Been A Crime

| Right | June 2, 2020

Dear readers,

Today is Leave the Office Earlier Day! This day was invented by Laura Stack, a specialist in employee productivity. She noted that working longer hours and overtime is actually detrimental to productivity! The US works about 350 hours more a year than their European counterparts, so she decided that a day to leave early was required!

Now 2020 is proving to be a weird year for workers, but that still doesn’t mean you can’t less your boss know what today is, and maybe take a longer lunch break for yourself if you can! If you do get some more time today, we hope you can use it to enjoy the 23 stories selected from our archives, of demanding bosses, lazy coworkers, and oblivious customers who do not respect a decent work/life balance!

 

Okay, That Was A Little Mean – Mean it may be, but this is soooo satisfying to read!

Overtime Crime – We’re pretty sure a federal court would love to hear about what’s happening here.

Dads: Gotta Love ‘Em – Remaining calm in the face of their ever-increasing fury is a joy to behold.

Off The Clock, Customer Block, Part 2 – Making them sound like a jerk is easy because they are.

Overtime Crime, Part 2 – There’s a reason why our ‘Overtime Crime’ title became a series…

Replacing A Labor Coach With A Labor Couch – Nothing screams work/life balance like labor pains!

Overtime Crime, Part 3 – We were hoping this series could end on a trilogy. How wrong we were…

Don’t Commit The Crime If You Can’t Do The Overtime – So this is what happens when you go from a sweatshop to a real place of work!

Mourning The Morning – Some people are just not morning people.

Overtime Crime, Part 4 – When the boss is hoping the two-hour movie has a one-hour intermission.

The Key To Avoiding Overtime – If you have to SNEAK OUT to avoid mandatory overtime, something has gone horribly wrong.

A Storm Of Protest – We’d like you to risk your life for a minimum-wage job by driving in a blizzard. KTHXBYE!

Overtime Crime, Part 5 – The important thing is the manager got home to his hot dinner – nothing else matters!

A Professor That Gives You The Time Of Day – “For the love of Sagan” – read this story!

Dress Down For Lunch Or You’ll Get A Good Dressing – When a lunch break is purely theoretical.

Overtime Crime, Part 6 – The store can’t be run without overtime. The store cannot afford overtime. You see where this is going…

This Extra Working Just Isn’t Working – The cold coffee is just the icing on the cake.

A Weak Week Off – Notarizing still counts in pajamas, right?

Overtime Crime, Part 7 – Sometimes to work with a bad boss you have to work over them.

No Such Thing As A Free Lunch – They thought they could get away with it. NOT TODAY!

Short Nights Lead To Short Temper – Having a bit of a rant does work sometimes it seems!

Overtime Crime, Part 9 – What’s more important? Your daughter’s health or that your shift gets covered?

A Rose By Any Other Customer – When a lunch break isn’t.
