Weekend Roundup: Time Travel

| Right | April 8, 2012

Time Travel! This week, we show it’s only a matter of “time” before you run into customers with no grasp of time—past, present, or future!

  1. Someone’s About To Get Smacked To The Future:
    An unsuspecting wife gets sent out by a husband on a fool’s errand to look for a flux capacitor—in a flying DeLorean, no doubt.
  2. A Tale Of Time Traveling Tune-Ups:
    The customer is always right, even if it means ripping a hole in the space-time continuum.
  3. Doctor Sue:
    Look, man, we all wish your replica TARDIS actually flew through time, but unless you’re a Time Lord with a chameleon circuit, you’re barking up the wrong police box.
  4. Eastern Standard Time Travelers:
    Getting time zones mixed up with time travel? No big deal, although teleporting New York City three hours into the future would be kinda cool.
  5. Please See The “Time Travel” Section:
    This dinosaur-craving bookstore customer has been watching a little bit too much Jurassic Park!

    Customer, oo-oo-oo-ooh // Didn’t mean to make you cry // If you’re not back again this time tomorrow // Go away, go away // Your pranks don’t really matter…
  3. Prankin’ Like It’s 1929:
    This elderly caller’s prank is probably older than your grandparents, but he proves laughter IS the best medicine—especially when it’s at your expense!

    A caller learns the hard way that if you’re gonna prank an employee, at least be original!

Weekend Roundup: A Day In An Employee’s Life

| Right | March 18, 2012

A Day In An Employee’s Life. This week, we share five stories that share the ups and downs (well, mostly the latter) of being an employee. If you’ve ever wanted to share with a friend what your job is like, send them this roundup!

  1. Teaching The Next Generation:
    Fold…unfold…fold…unfold…It’s a wonder more clothing store employees haven’t gone crazy!
  2. A Time To Laugh, But Mostly A Time To Cry:
    This one will get you teary eyed: A customer’s precocious little girl leaves a big, smelly surprise in the changing room.
  3. Mrs. Understanding:
    Teach your children by example…the example of poor, suffering employees, that is.
  4. In This War, There Are No Winners:
    When they say “stick it to the man,” they probably weren’t referring to the guy stuck cleaning up your mess with a mop and a broom.
  5. Nothin’ Like A Good Old Existential Meltdown:
    Customers often ask stupid questions, but on occasion they can have profoundly earth-shattering ramifications.
