Childhood Innocence Is A Gift

, , | Right | March 21, 2018

(In the store where I work, we offer to gift-wrap the items that are purchased. Since we do this all year round, we generally have it down to a science. A customer and her little daughter buy a gift. I wrap it and do my regular swirl to gather up the ribbons in a bow.)

Little Girl: *upon seeing the bow* “Wow! Are your hands magical?”

Me: “Yep, everyone at [Store] has magic hands. They hand them out when we start working.”

Little Girl: “Oooh.”

I am a doctor. With my patients consent I have booked a time for a telephone call with a relative to the patient. I call the relative 1 minute before the scheduled time and get a busy line.
So I call again 3 minutes past, 7 minutes past and 15 minutes past and all I get is a busy line.
Then, one of the nurses come running to me and ask why I haven’t called the relative. They have been calling the ward almost every 5 minutes since before the scheduled time to ask why I haven’t called yet….

(I am sitting behind the counter at the museum gift shop when a small child comes into the store.)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Child: “You don’t have giraffes here?”

Me: “No. No, we don’t.”

Child: “That is good. I don’t like giraffes.” *walks off*

Me: *blinks*

(I answer my phone.)

Me: “[My Name].”

Telemarketer: :Hello, this is [His Name] calling about your home insurance.”

Me: “Nice, do you know what insurance company I have now?”

Telemarketer: “Shouldn’t you know?”

Me: “Yes, and I want to keep it that way. Please do not call again as I will now black list your number.”

(And another number went to the auto-reject list.)

Black Pepper Matters

, , | Right | January 16, 2018

(I work as a receptionist at a museum that has an exhibition about racism. This is when I am still an intern. I have only worked at the reception by myself a couple of times before, so I am a little nervous. A customer walks in.)

Customer: “May I ask you a question?”

Me: “Of course!”

(The customer looks at me with a deadly serious face.)

Customer: “Black pepper and white pepper. Is that racist?”

(Needless to say, I was stunned by the odd question.)
