I work for a locally owned plumbing and heating company with a basic mon-fri 9am-5 pm shift. I also almost always carry over the counter pain killers on me just in case of a bad headache or “female” surprises. I do rarely have to take said painkillers, but I am not hesitant to offer them to co-workers, or even my boss if needed, and my boss gets A LOT of headaches. On this particular day, its slow for the office staff but not him. He was so busy he got a migraine. So he decided to take advantage of the fact that I carry regular pain killers on me, and walks into the office asking “Got any drugs?” Needless to say, I gave him a horrified look until he clarified that he needed headache meds……

I am sitting in my biology teacher’s classroom during lunch. The class she has is one of her rowdy classes. We are talking, but there is a lull in the conversation long enough for us to see Student 1 try to shoot a tissue box into the trash can, miss, and say:

Student 1: “Sh*t!”

Teacher: *flabbergasted*

Student 1: *shoots and makes it*

Teacher: “Student 1! Get my tissues out of my trash and watch your language!”

Student 2: “Yeah, sh*thead!”

(It is July of 2015, and I am feeling absolutely crushed, after learning that an amazing video game developer has passed away. I am working at a local game store)

Customer: Good morning, I’d like to buy this.

(He hands me a Ness Amiibo)

Me: …Sure.

Customer: Something wrong?

Me: Yeah, I guess you could say that.

Customer: Let me guess… it’s about [Late video game developer]

Me: …Yeah.

Customer: I’m shocked by his passing too, but I decided that I wanted to buy this, fly to Japan with it and leave it as a memento on his grave, as a thank you for all the wonderful times he has given us.

Me: *stunned* Wha… really? Sir, that is so nice of you!

Customer: It’s the least I could do. Also, here’s a banana.

(I rang it up for him as he gave me a banana, a little note to one of the E3s. Wherever you are sir, thank you so much and I hope that he liked your gift from above)

(As well as printing services, my copy shop also offers some office services, including faxes. The prices are quite a bit higher than people expect them to be though, so if I see a customer with a large stack of faxing, I ALWAYS advise them of the price before faxing, and the prices are listed right on the self-serve fax machine)

Customer: I need to fax these papers to my insurance company, can you help me?

Me: Certainly!

Customer: Well, how much will this cost?

Me: do you know how many pages you have?

Customer: No! Oh it doesn’t matter, I absolutely have to send these!

Me: Are you sure ma’am? That’s quite a lot of papers, and the price is $1.49 for the first page and $1.29 for each additonal.

Customer: Just send them!

(I scan all of the pages through, and the machine begins to dial)

Customer: Oh, I’m just so worried about the price!

Me: Well ma’am, there’s still time for me to stop the fax and count your pages so I can give you an estimate first.

Customer: No, no, I HAVE to send these!

Me: If you’re sure…

(The fax completes, and ring the customer up)

Me: That will be $XX.XX

Customer: WHAT!? That’s outrageous! I’m not paying that! Get me a manager right away, you should have told me it would be that much!

(thankfully my manager asked for my side of the story, and after pointing out that I had offered quotes twice, warned the woman of the expense AND the prices were posted where she could plainly see them, the customer huffily paid the full amount)

I frequently play a touch MOBA called Vainglory. I am not very good, but I know the heroes of the game pretty well. I am playing in the cafeteria alone when two boys walk up to me.

Boy#1: Hey, do you actually know how to play that game?

Boy#2: Or are you one of those fake gamer girls?

Me: I do know how to play. I may not play well, but I can play.

Boy#2: Yeah, I bet you don’t even know what type of game it is.

Me: It’s a MOBA, multiplayer online battle arena. Do you play? What level are you?

Boy#1: I’m a level 94.

Boy#2: I’m level 96.

I smirk at this, because I know full well the max level is 20.

Me: Do you even know what game this is?

Boy#2: It doesn’t matter. You’re just trying to get boys attention by playing a video game in public.

Me: Not my intention, but it’s working, because you’re talking to me right now.

Boy#1: Look, just take it to your room or stop trying to get into a man’s world. We don’t need fake gamer girls like you here.

Me: I have every right to play this game wherever I want… You know what? I challenge both of you to a 2v2. You two against me and someone else on my team.

For the first time in the conversation, the boys look unsure of themselves.

Boy#2: You’re on a team?

Me: Yes. Are you backing out or are you in?

By this time a small crowd has gathered.

Boy#1: Of course we’re going. When?

Me: How about now? My teammate is on right now. Boot up your phone or whatever and let’s play.

The audience that has gathered gets comfortable.

Boy#2 and #1 sit down and pull out their phone awkwardly.

I see that they are fiddling around pretending but they don’t even know what game we’re playing.

Me: You guys should be disqualified anyway, but I’ll be nice. The game’s called Vainglory. Get your butts on so I can kick them.

They are embarrassed and hurriedly download the app. They are still pretty confident they’ll win, though, convinced that I have no idea how to play the game.

I tell them I’ll come back in half an hour so they can get through the tutorial. I leave and somehow when I get back a gigantic crowd has gathered and someone has brought a key to a classroom with a projector so everyone can watch.

We get in there and start the game. The teammate I choose is my brother, who is on the other side of the country and I cannot communicate with verbally. We play a full three games and each time we in under fifteen minutes, much to their embarrassment. At the end of the third game the whole room is cheering and laughing at the two boys.

Me: Next time you challenge, make sure that you know what you’re talking about. Girls were created not to do what men can do but to do what they can’t do. Video games can be considered just as much a girl’s thing as a guy’s thing. You two were just creamed by a GIRL and what’s more you two had the ability to chatter away while I had only pings to communicate with my teammate. Get out of here with your broken dignity and come back when you’ve picked up the pieces.

They left and have avoided me since, but I made LOTS of friends that day and now we have a Vainglory club at school!
