(I’m a 7th grade teacher. It’s the beginning of class, so I’m giving directions as I walk to go answer a knock at the door.)

Me: “Okay guys, go ahead and hop onto the laptops and jump on our computer program. Wait, don’t actually jump into the computer like Steve jumps into pictures on Blues Clues.”

A few students: “I LOVE BLUE’S CLUES!”

*I open the door to a student delivering a document.*

Student: *Singing one of the songs from Blues Clues* “We just got a letter!”

Me: *joining in* “We just got a letter!”

The rest of my students who know of the show: “We just got a letter! Wonder who it’s from?”

(This is why I love teaching 7th graders.)

Me: “Yes, sir, there is a $17 fee to receive an incoming wire transfer.”

Customer: “You know what? I’m just going to tell my doctor to let the cancer take me. I’m done. Have a nice Christmas!” (hangs up)

Me: (speechless)

(At my radio station, my work space is in the production studio. There’s a quirk on the phone where, after one ring, it’ll automatically pick-up and go to speaker phone. I’m working one day, when the phone rings. Before I can acknowledge the person on the speaker phone, our receptionist brings a client into the studio.)

Receptionist: Yes, this is [client]. He’s here today to voice some new spots.

Me: Excellent! Just come on in and have a seat behind the microphone. Do you have a copy of the script with you?

Client: Uh, I actually thought I’d be working with [co-worker] today, so I e-mailed the script to him before I came here.

Me: No worries. Something tells me that’s him on the speaker phone, to tell me I can get the script from him.

Co-Worker: (from the speaker phone) YES IT IS! AND YES, THAT’S RIGHT!

Client: Holy s**t, you guys are on top of things!

(My mother is talking on the phone with my sister about the Natural Pantry in Anchorage. I’m sitting in the same room, on my laptop chatting with a friend.)

Mom: Yes, at the Natural Panty

Me: *Bursts out laughing!*
