(My husband recently went to the hospital. Among others, the kidney doctor wanted a follow-up visit. However, he’s considered out-of-network at his home office, but not at the hospital. After two weeks going back and forth, we hit this road block.)

Husband: Look, the doctor said you’d have this straight by now.

Receptionist: The doctor isn’t in right now. We’re handling this, but the insurance has to-

Husband: Stop. This is the third time you’ve told me that the insurance has to do something, then I do, then the insurance again. I already talked to them, YOUR office needs to put in the starting requst, not them, not me!

Receptionist: Technically, yes.

Me: (in background) What does she mean, “technically”?

Husband: Please explain.

Receptionist: Since we’re a second-tier partner, we don’t normally even talk to (Insurance company). We’re honestly doing you a favor even considering it!

Husband: So, tell me, have you “done me a favor” and even made the request yet?

Receptionist: No.

Husband: Then do me an ACTUAL favor and just cancel it all.

(He hung up, we called our insurance, and had an in-network doctor get us an appointment for the next day!)

I teach supply chain management to MSc students. It is the first week of the new year, and I introduce myself and the subject to the students. Both is clearly displayed on the screen. Most students have first degrees in engineering, several years of experience in industry, and many of them are already teaching in their home countries. We discuss this, and they even give them time for a group activity. At the end of the first hour, two students approach me. They had finally just realised that they are in the wrong room: they are first year undergraduates in political science. Apparently, it didn’t occur to them that I was the wrong person, teaching the wrong subject, to the wrong kind of students.

(I’ve had just about the worst night of work as a server in my life. I showed up at our after work bar in tears still, and pull up a chair at the end of the table where my coworkers are sitting. A few more coworkers show up, and we need to pull another table over to accomodate us.)

Coworker #1: You’re going to need to move. Can you handle that?

Me: No. Will you pull my chair over (Coworker #2) and (Coworker #3)?

(They pull my chair off to the side so they can move the table over.)

Me: AND THOSE ARE WHAT YOU CALL FRIENDS!! (I love the people I work with.)

(I was playing ‘This Little Piggy’ on my 3 year old nephews toes, but letting him recite the rhyme)

Nephew: This liitle piggy went to market, this little piggy had toast, this little piggy went to [pizza chain] and had pizza and breadsticks, this little piggy had none….

Me: (howling with laughter)

Smithville, TN | Unfiltered | October 7, 2015

(I was working at the beginning of a closing shift. The antagonist in my story is a regular that’s SO regular the owners bought him his own special coffee cup. I’ve worked here for 5 months. The last time i saw him was about two weeks ago and he asked me AGAIN what my name was. I’ve probably served him 5-10 times in 5 months. He’s usually accompanied by a friend, but today he dines alone. The dinner went normal. I kept his coffee full and his ticket time was about 13 minutes. He’s finished eating and I’ve dropped the check and prebussed the table. As I walk by I make some small talk. he’s seated by my POS)

Regular: So (Inaduable) Due?

Me: Excuse me sir?

Regular: So when is your little one due?

(I was horrified. I mumbled, “I’m not pregnant” and scurried off to cry privately. I used to be VERY overweight. Around 300 lbs. I’ve lost 106 lbs in the last 15 months. I wore a medium shirt for the first time since High School two months ago. I’ve lost 14 sizes in jeans. I was so proud of myself.)
