(My co-worker uses the frothing pitcher we use for almond milk to make himself a latte using half almond milk and half regular milk. There is a little bit of the mixture left in the pitcher, and he sets it by the almond milk container in the fridge.)

Me: “Hey, don’t put it back. Dump it out.”

(He looks at me, unconvinced.)

Me: “There’s regular milk in there, right? People don’t want that if they get almond milk.”

Co-worker: “Oh, but it’s only a little bit.”

Me: “…”

(this happens at the end of the period)

Trumpet 1: Thanks for all the jazz help, man.

Trumpet 2: No problem, but it’ll cost you $40.

Trumpet 1: Okay, I’ll just sell my siblings to pay you back.

(Trumpet 2 leaves. A violin player who had also heard the exchange speaks up)

Violinist: [Trumpet 1], you don’t have any siblings.

Trumpet 1: Shh! *pauses and whispers* Yeah, but he doesn’t know that.

(I work at a small independent theater with a name very close to a national chain. The customer I am helping has been quite pleasant so far. He is also African-American.)

Me: All right sir, that will be (amount).

Customer: Ok, I have this gift card I’d like to use. (Hands me a card from the chain.)

Me: Oh, I’m sorry, this is actually from (competitor).

Customer: So?

Me: We’re not affiliated with them. I’m sorry, but I can’t accept this.

Customer: YOU F***ING B****!!! I WANT TO USE MY GIFT CARD!! I’M THE CUSTOMER, YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT I SAY!!

Me: Sir, there’s no possible way that I can make our system accept-

Customer: IT’S BECAUSE I’M BLACK, ISN’T IT?

Me: Not at-

Customer: WELL F*** YOU TOO B****!!

(He then throws the gift card in my face and storms out, shouting profanities about how it’s “because I’m black.)

(I’m talking to my friend/coworker during a lull at work. My friend is a bit wild (drinking, late-night partying, unprotected sex). I’m joking about my high alcohol tolerance.)

Me: I’m going to have to spend my whole paycheck just to deal with coming to work to earn my paycheck!

Friend: Haha, you’re officially an alcoholic!

Me: Oh, like you’re one to talk.

Friend: Hey, I haven’t had a drink in over a month!

Me: I would hope not – you’re pregnant!

(My mother asked me to come along with her as she gets gas, clean her car etc. We stop at a local gas station which has a coffee shop attached to it. She has 90 cents off the gallon due to a local gas point program at a supermarket. I come back to the following conversation)

Mom: I got charged Credit price!

Me: How so?

Mom: I had 90 cents off the gallon, so my gas should’ve been $2.87 not $2.97!

(Gas price for Regular is $3.87 for cash/debit and $3.97 for credit)

Me: Let me see the reciept..

(I read the reciept which shows she paid Debit, meaning the price is correct.)

Me: This is correct.

Mom: No! I should’ve saved $1.00 of the gallon since I paid debit and got the extra 10 cents!

Me: Mom, do the math..you paid debit right?

Mom: Right!

Me: OK so look at the base price for Debit.

(She looks at the board)

Mom: Yeah? I had 90 cents off, but..

Me: But you didn’t pay with Credit. So you get the Debit or Cash price with the 90 cents.

(She thinks about this for a minute.)

Mom: I’m an idiot.

(I told this story to my father later who just quipped: “Your mother and sister have blonde moments all the time I swear.”)
