Not Getting Paid To Pay Attention

(I am ordering at the drive-thru window at a fast food chain.)

Me: “I’d like a number 4 with a Pepsi.”

Employee: “Would you like a drink with that?”

Me: “Yes, a Pepsi.”

Employee: “Well, what would you like?”

Me: “A Pepsi.”

Employee: “What do you want to drink?!”

Me: “A Pepsi!”

Employee: “No, what do you want to…ooohh!”

(Note: our boss speaks English, but is not a native speaker. My coworkers make fun of her accent and I hate it because it is disrespectful and very stupid. We are all native English speakers. This instance has a co-worker looking at the work schedule.)

Coworker: *laughing* “Look! [Boss] spelled “Saturday” wrong!”

Me: “She did? How did she spell it?”

Coworker: *still laughing* “S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y!”

Me: “She spelled it that way because that’s how you spell ‘Saturday’.”

Coworker: “Really? No…wait, really?!”

(We have a display of TVs that are tuned into a news channel. The story on the television is about a drug smuggling tunnel underneath the ground that crossed the US & Mexico border. One of my coworkers, who just started working the previous week, is watching it, puzzled.)

Coworker: “I just don’t see what the big deal is about this.”

Me: “You mean besides the fact that they’re smuggling drugs illegally across the border between two countries?”

Coworker: “No, they’re not. It says it’s between Mexico and Texas!”

Me: “Yeah, it is. Mexico’s not part of the United States.”

Coworker: “What are you talking about? Mexico is totally a state!”

Me: “How many states do you think are in the USA?”

Coworker: “57!”
