My jobs...

At my last job I got to hang out with a bunch of kids and then tell stories about the funny things they said on my blog. Now I work with adults for the most part and I have to say it is much more difficult to be patient with just seems like they should know better.
Here are a couple funny things I have heard/conversations I have had at my new place of employment:

A nice lady at a table I am serving asks: Are you from Texas?
I answer (with some question in my voice and on my face): No.
She asks: Then why are you wearing that pendant of Texas around your neck?
(the pendant is of Africa)
I answer: Oh, this is actually Africa.
She looked at me real funny and says: Oh, okay dear.

A man comes up to the counter and asks for our catering menu...
One of the other ladies goes to get it and I say: She will be right back with that in a second.
He replies: Oh, It's been a second!
I laughed (yes it was a fake laugh) and said: She will be right back with that in a moment.
He askes: How many seconds is in a moment?
I reply: Ninety.
(some people are impossible)

Two ladies occupied one of my tables and everything they ordered was low-fat or fat-free...they were obviously trying to watch everything they ate...respectively.
Well, I went up to the table to see if they needed anything and asked if they would like some more rolls. One of the ladies replied, 'yes, but could you get us the lightest ones you can find?" I thought for sure that by 'light' she ment 'not as well done' 'not crispy' not brown', I brought some back and she looked at them funny. I asked her if everything was okay and she said (pointing at the rolls), 'those look the same as the ones before'. I said, 'yes well they are all baked about the same.' She said, 'no I ment I need ones with less fat'. I said, "we don't have low fat rolls." She was a little put out...but seriously 'light rolls', you have got to be kidding!

That's all for now!


  1. Those are hilarious!! My favorite is the one about the "texas" pendant. It's just like a Texan to think for some strange reason that the state of Texas is somehow even in the same size category as the continent of Africa. Sad, really. (and I can say this having been born in TX)
