(My father and I are walking back from a late lunch, where I had quite a lot of soda for lunch and my father has plans to take me walking around the neighborhood to look at the houses for sale.)

Me: can I abandon you? I need to head home.

My dad: wait just a minute longer…it’s just right here.

Me:uh dad not sure that’s the best idea, after all I am meeting (my friend) in a few minutes…

My dad: you can be late for her.

Me: well yeah but I also have to pee,have had to since I left the restaurant.

My dad: oh, well then you better go. You do not want to be late for a pee!

This story takes place in our employee break room. There are two other people in the room besides me. There is a large television, which is turned on but no one seems to be watching it. Another employee enters the room:

Co-Worker: Is anybody watching this? *gesturing toward the TV*

Me: I’m not, but I don’t know if anyone else is.

(No one else says anything.)

Co-Worker: Are you suuuuure you’re not watching it?

Me: Yep, I’m sure!

Co-Worker: Are you suuuuure?

Me: Yes, I am! I am sure I am not watching the TV?

Co-Worker: *starts conversation with another employee in the room. During the conversation, he changes the channel on the television.*

Me: Hey! I was watching that!

Co-Worker: I hate you.

(My geography teacher sometimes likes to give prizes to students who help him out. Today, he hands a group of us envelopes after we pass out papers.)

Teacher: Okay, you can open your envelopes when I say. So, [Student #1], tell us what you got.

Student #1: It’s [Teacher’s Name] Cash. Good for one extra credit point on any quiz or test.

Teacher: Great! [Student #2]? What have you got?

*Student 2 pulls several folded papers out*

Student #2: Coupons for [local grocery chain].

Teacher: Are they from this month?

Student #2: Nope.

Teacher: Well, that’s wonderful. Enjoy those. [Student #3], your turn!

Student #3: It’s [Teacher’s name] Cash. *reads* Have a great day!

Teacher: A salutation, how nice. Go, [My Name].

Me: I got extra credit too!

Teacher: Better hold on to that. Well, that was fun. I did this in my other class yesterday. Someone got an envelope full of dirt from the plant on the windowsill. It was the best reaction I ever got to a prize.

(He has also previously given students last week’s newspaper, a Stalin calendar from 1982, pumpkin pie flavored gum, and a pamphlet for a local attraction. And those are just the ones from my class!)

(A large group of customers approaches my register with an Xbox One, three controllers, three games, and several other gaming accessories. I start ringing items in, in no particular order, as they place them up on the counter.)

Customer #1: “Wait, what did you just scan?”

Me: “I scanned the Xbox, the controllers, your charging station, and your cable.”

Customer #1: “Did you scan the games yet?”

Me: “No.”

Customer #1: “Okay, scan the games first.”

(I scan the games in, then try to keep ringing in other things.)

Customer: “Okay, what’s on there now.”

Me: “The Xbox, the charging station, the cable, and the games.”

Customer #1: “Okay, I’m trying to make sure we get this down to a certain amount. What are we at now?”

Me: “[Price].”

Customer: #1 “Okay, scan the controllers in, please.”

(I scan in the controllers).

Customer #1: “Did you scan the controllers?”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer #1: “Okay, take off the gold one.”

Me: “Okay, do you still want the silver one and the camo one?”

Customer #1: “Yes.”

Me: “Okay.”

(Since the computer doesn’t tell me which code is for which controller, I void off all three controllers, then scan in the two that he wanted.)

Customer #1: “What did you just do?”

Me: “I voided off all three controllers, since I didn’t know which one was which in the computer, then I scanned in the other two that you wanted.”

(The customer gives me a blank stare, so I repeat this again. After several minutes of him telling me what to add and take off, I start asking them the questions about optional add-ons.)

Me: “Do you want to cover this for 2 years in case anything happens to it?”

Customer #1: “How much is it?”

Me: “[Price]”

Customer #2: “No.”

Me: “Okay.”

(Customer #2 tries to slide his card, but the machine isn’t ready yet, as another pop-up appears on his end of the screen.)

Me: “Oh, actually, first it’s going to ask you if you want to apply for our in-store credit card and save some money today.”

Customer #2: “No.” [Tries to slide his card again.]

Me: “Oh, you’ll actually have to hit ‘No Thanks’ on the screen.”

Customer #2: [Hits the button and slides his card again.]

Me: “Okay, your total comes to [total].”

Customer #2: “Did I slide my card already?”

Me: “You did, but it wasn’t quite ready for you yet.”

Customer #2: “Okay.”

(My mum is the principal of a small school. I am in my mum’s office, doing my own work, along with my best friend – who also works as a teacher here – and is using the photocopy machine. We both graduated from this school, from the same class, 3 years ago. My mum is also in the room, and I am just about to show my best friend a funny video. Suddenly, the door opens and our former classmate, who happens to be my cousin, pops his head in.)

Cousin: *in a very happy voice* Hey [my name], hey [best friend]! Are you guys going tonight?

(I glance at my best friend, who shrugs, and back at him. Neither of us knows what he’s talking about.)

Me: Going where?

Cousin: *still in a very amiable tone* Oh, didn’t you hear? [ex-classmate]’s dad just died. We just got the news.

Me: *in absolute shock* What?!

Cousin: *still with the happy tone* Yea, the wake is tonight. Are you going?

Me: Uhhh…

My mum: Not tonight, we have something on. But we can go tomorrow.

Cousin: *STILL very cheerfully* Oh, okay! I’ll text you the details. See ya, [my name]!

(He walks out and closes the door behind him, a huge smile on his face. There are a few seconds of stunned silence.)

Me: ….well, that was a s*** way of telling us someone passed away. What was he even DOING here?

(Needless to say, the mood in the office dropped dramatically after that. I still have no idea why my cousin was here, since he doesn’t ever come, and how he thought that was the best way to break the news to us.)
