My mother has enough brothers and sisters to warrant a roll call when they were younger.

Nana: Okay, is everyone in the car? Mary?

Mary: Here!

Nana: Eddy?

Eddy: Here!

Nana: Cathy?

Cathy: Here!

Nana: Pat?

*silence*

Nana: Pat? Patrick?! *turns around* Oh God, we’ve left Pat behind!!!

They found him climbing a tree.

ON, Canada | Unfiltered | October 6, 2015

(This happened in math class. I finished up my work very quickly, and have my headphones in, listening to music and bopping along to the tune. As I’m extremely self-conscious about bothering people, I have made absolutely positive that I am completely silent. One of my classmates starts shouting, so I take my headphones off and listen.)

Classmate: -but [My Name] is listening to music! Why can’t I?

Teacher: [My Name] has finished all of his work. If you can do that before the period ends, then you can listen to music.

(He shuts up for a while, and does his work. When he’s done, he turns it in and starts blasting an obscene rap song, which I can hear, even with my headphones in.)

Teacher: [CLASSMATE]! Put some headphones in or shut that off!

Classmate: Aw, come on! You said I could listen to music!

Teacher: And now I’m telling you to put some headphones in! You’re disturbing your classmates!

Classmate: You just don’t like my music, that’s it! You just hate the music I’m listening to!

Teacher: True though that may be, I’m asking you to put some headphones in because it is FAR TOO LOUD!

Me: Agreed. Dude, I have my music right up to max and I can still hear yours.

Classmate: What the h***, man! Here, show all of us what you’re listening to. I know you like the same music as me, if the teacher hears what you’re listening to, you’ll have to shut yours down! If I’m not listening to music, no one else is.

Teacher: That’s is not-

Me: No, it’s OK.

(I unplug my headphones, and restart the song I was listening to. To my classmate’s dismay, it is a song, completely gibberish, from Splatoon, an E-rated video game, to a thumping techno beat, rather than rap. [Classmate] sinks down in his seat, and we don’t hear a word from him for the rest of the class. Best of all, I learned later that a couple of people in that class are also fans of Splatoon, and I make a few new friends out of it.)

Ohio | Unfiltered | October 5, 2015

[I locked my keys in my car and as a result, leave probably half an out late to get to work. Even though I’m guessing I’ll be to work within 10 minutes of my usual time, and my coworker notoriously hangs around talking at me for 15-20 minutes after her shift ends, I call as a courtesy to let her know.]

COWORKER: Hi. [Library.]

ME: Hi, it’s me, I just wanted to let you know, I locked my keys in my car and am only just now leaving. I’ll be there by a quarter after, tops, probably sooner.

COWORKER *long pause*: Should I wait?

[Keep in mind, at this hour, she would be the *only* employee in the library except for maybe one student volunteer.]

ME: Um . . . I would? Yes?

COWORKER: ‘kay.

[When I arrived, barely ten minutes after, I saw her walking to her car as I was pulling up. Guess if I wasn’t there to talk at, no reason to stay late!]

Oklahoma, USA | Unfiltered | October 5, 2015

(I was sitting at my table enjoying a drink before my meal at this restaurant and there was a family with a baby no more than a year old.)

Me: Hi, little guy! *smiles and waves*

Baby: *barfs all over himself*

(My mom laughed so hard at that and it was pretty funny looking back at it now.

Helsinki, Finland | Unfiltered | October 5, 2015

(The train I usually take is an express commuter train. Most trains stop at a major transfer station, but this train doesn’t. Before the train leaves Helsinki, there is an automated announcement about this. Today a helpful, but very drunk, passenger decides to supplement it.)

Announcement: This train’s next stop is [town 50 km/30 miles away].

Drunk Passenger: That’s right! So if you’re going to [transfer station] or [other suburban station], get off now because this train doesn’t go there!
