Sunday family dinner with my in-laws

(we’re at our usual Sunday dinner with my in-laws and my father-in-law is doing his usual gripe/grouch thing about nothing in particular. My mother-in-law is a short, round, sweet, nice lady that never says boo to a mouse, but this day she is slightly annoyed at her husband’s griping)

M-I-L: “Not everything is about your penis!”

(I’m training a new volunteer, explaining everything she needs to know about the clothing tents.)

Me: “Try to keep everything presentable, image is crucial. The clothes are all old, but look much nicer if they are folded instead of lying in heaps.”

Volunteer: “Are you sure that’s necessary? In clothing stores, I never fold anything, that’s what the people working there are getting paid for!”

Me: “You are aware that in this scenario both of us are the salespeople cleaning up after a person like you?”

Volunteer: “That’s no fun at all! You need to have more fun things to do for volunteers!”

(She played a potted plant for the rest of the afternoon, while I worked two tents at the same time.)

(My class and I are taking a break from our writing assessment in language arts class until our teacher starts to talk about the new Star Wars movie.)

Teacher: “So who’s ready for the new Star Wars movie!?”

Student: “I don’t really like Star Wars that much.”

Teacher: “Get out of my class”

[Some people seem to think just because they know our Store Manager, they can bully the staff into doing whatever they want. One lady in-particular is notorious for demanding free fries.]

Me: Here’s you order ma’am. Have a good day!

Customer: Excuse you! What the hell is this?

[She pulls her box of fries from her bag and throws them all me.]

Customer: That box was half empty! Give me a FULL box of fries. With how much these fries cost I should get a decent amount!

Me: Ma’am That box was full. All the boxes you see over on the rack are full. That is exactly what you paid for. If you don’t want them I can refund them for you.

Customer: No, give me a FULL box of fries or I’ll call [Store manager] on you!

Me: That’s fine ma’am. I’ll just call [Store owner] and tell him you’re bullying us into giving away free food so he can increase the prices again. That way you will be paying for what you get.

[She did call the Store Manager and said I was being physically and verbally abusive but the security video proved my innocence. Our store owner no longer takes her calls.]

(Two guys from my class get along so well, the teacher keeps complementing them especially on their teamwork whenever we do group presentations, and I assumed they were lifelong pals until I found out one of them moved to the city just a few months ago. One day, the two of them spot me at the campus café, and we start chatting over a cup of tea.)

Guy 1: “… Yeah, [Guy 2], I can see why people would think that. I mean, from your usual face you look like the ‘angry’ type.”

Guy 2: “Pfft, what? If anything, I look- hey, [My Name], what would you say about my face?”

Me: “Uh… You always look anxious about something, I guess? No offence.”

Guy 2: “*cheerfully* None taken!”

(No less than two days later, I am walking home from a lecture when they spot me and get off their bikes. Somebody who isn’t paying attention bumps into Guy 2’s bike while he’s getting off. While none of them are hurt, Guy 2 had told us about how he needed to go to the hospital after a biking-related incident a few years ago, and the person who bumped into him shouts crude curses at Guy 2 before biking away, so we are naturally worried.)

Guy 2: “No, seriously, it’s nothing. I’ve had worse!”

Me: “… I’m really surprised you’re taking it so well.”

Guy 1: “Yeah. One, you HAVE had worse. Second, uh… Since you kinda look like a huge teddy bear-”

Guy 2: “What the heck? Didn’t you say… Yeah, you did! First you say I look like the angry type, and now you turn around and call me a freaking TEDDY BEAR? Will you ever decide what I look like to you?!”

(He keeps ranting about this for a good five minutes; while he genuinely sounds hurt, he still has that usual face. Guy 1 goes awkwardly quiet and looks down at his feet as we keep walking, whereas I start giggling uncontrollably.)

Me: “*Once Guy 2 is done* Heh… Well… I think I’ve decided on ‘angry’ for now…”

Guy 2: “Thank you!”
