Meat-Headed Questions

| Toronto, ON, Canada | Working | May 2, 2012

(I work in the campus pub of my university. Staff get meals for a huge discount during their shift. Part of our menu is a signature burger. We also have a vegetarian burger. This conversation occurs as a coworker is trying to figure out what to have for their staff meal.)

Coworker #1: “Have you tried the veggie burger here?”

Me and Coworker #2: *shake heads*

Coworker #1: “Do you know if it’s any good?”

Coworker #2: “Well, it is one of the healthier options we have.”

Coworker #1: “Is it anything like meat?”

Me and Coworker #2: “Not really…”

Coworker #1: “Oh. Because I kind of want the taste of meat.”

*awkward silence*

Coworker #1: “Maybe I should just get the regular burger, huh?”

The Product Of A Low Intelligence Quotient

| Springfield, GA, USA | Working | May 1, 2012

(I’m working on the register while my coworker works in our hot deli.)

Coworker: “Can you ring me up for two biscuits with the half-off discount and tell me how much it is? I rang it up on the calculator, but I don’t think it’s right.”

Me: “Well, what did you get?”

Coworker: “Well, I typed in $0.89 times two and then divided it in half, and I ended up with $0.89 again!”

Me: “[Coworker], really?”

Coworker: “What?”

Me: “What’s $0.89 times TWO divided by TWO?”

Coworker: *embarrassed* “Oh God. Just ring me up, please.”

Not A-Moo-sing In The Least

(A coworker-in-training is asking me some questions about the different ingredients in each sub.)

Coworker: “So, what animal does turkey come from?”

Me: “Turkey.”

Coworker: “Yeah, the turkey breast… What animal is that from?”

Me: *gives up* “Cow.”

Coworker: “Really?”

Me: “No.”

(Believe it or not, she became the general manager of our store!)

Just Grit And Bear It

| Lake Bluff, IL, USA | Working | April 26, 2012

(I go to my local superstore in search of sandpaper to fix a door frame. I spot an employee putting away groceries.)

Me: “Hi…where can I find sandpaper?”

Employee: *confused* “…Papaya?”

Me: “No, no. Sandpaper, for making things smooth.”

Employee: *confused* “Computer?”

Me: *giving up* “Thanks, I’ll try and find it myself.”

Employee: *sudden look of comprehension* “Shelf!”
