That's when you double down and tell him, "If I wanted the Cokes on the floor, I wouldn't be asking you to help me get the Cokes down from the shelf, now would I?"

I actually just thanked him and asked for directions to the optometry section.

^^ Similar thing happened to me. One of my exes would always talk about how much she loved her Jeep. It could hold 5 people, it didn't break down and blah blah blah. I was always confused, as she always said this and I never saw her drive a Jeep... One day while in her RX330, I finally asked where this Jeep was, since I never see it. She proceeded to say "You're in it... Isn't this a Jeep?"



To too many people, the right pedal is the go pedal and the left is the not-go peddle.

Funny enough, that very same girl asked me why I kept moving the shifter out of drive (This was in my 5-speed Miata). I explained to her that I was switching gears. On a different occasion, she asked if the two left pedals were brakes

One of my favorites happened when I was in college and working at an oil change place. An older lady comes in with her Cadillac and starts complaining that she was in the day before to get her oil changed and we did not add oil back to her car. She claimed that she had added 2 quarts and it still did not register on the dipstick.

She then opens her hood and takes off the oil fill cap, then pulls out the dipstick and jams it into the fill hole and pulls it out and shows me that there is no oil on the dipstick. I calmly grabbed the dipstick from her and stick it into the dip tube and pull it back out to show her that her car was 2 quarts over full.

She then proceeds to tell me that she thought that that was just the holder for the dipstick and not where you actually checked the oil. I then explained to her that she was wrong and asked the guy in the pit to drain a few quarts out.

Lol dude it happens constantly every day. Costco is an overwhelming place for your eyes, there is so much to see. Even those of us who work there have this same problem.

Isn't that mexican coke delicious?

On a side note. I work in the electronics department at Walmart. I get alot of "Where is (enter item here)." Its almost always directly behind them, or one more step forward in the path they were already on. They love to look up and down 9 aisles and skip the 10th one which is where the item they want is at.

Then like a week before halloween I come back from the rest-room and get stopped by a woman who says "You look like you can help me." Keep in mind I am in the electronics department. She then says "I want to look like Waldo for halloween" ...uh So I direct her towards our halloween section (which is rather large) Shes says shes looked through there. Silly me I went all the way up to the front of the store, from the very back, took all the Waldo costumes and hide them under our counters and locked them up.

I read all these posts in this thread and the only thing I learned (but already knew) was that most women don't know what car they drive every day, and working in retail sucks but delivers the lulz

Trying to help a co-worker with an access database I created for her team several months ago in order to help them keep track of their department specific records.

Her: Sir, we don't have any new information in our database, it's just not pulling any new information.

Me: That information doesn't 'pull' from anywhere.

Her: Well, then how are we supposed to see our information if it doesn't 'pull' from somewhere else?

A friend of mine got a job at McDonald's. He showed up early for every shift, hustled his *** off, stayed late after punching out. In general, he was the best employee he could possibly be for a month.
At the end of the month, the manager presented him with the employee of the month plaque with his name on it. He said "Thanks, I quit. That's what I was here for". He proudly has his McDonald's employee of the month plaque on his wall to this day.

He's a pretty sick fellow, but always interesting to hang out with.

Nah, that commie hates me. But it's hard to care about someone who can't see beyond his own nose.

I've been wanting to post the story about the rich guy with the hot daughter that couldn't open the hood on his $100,000 Mercedes. But...

Then this lady came to my work and she tried to pay me with money that she grabbed from inside her bra. I was like are you serious? Really? Holy ****! I was this close --- to telling her that I wouldn't accept the cash but I took it because it was a big sale. It was all sweaty and ****. Then when I give her change back. She put the bills and coins back in her bra! Uuuuugh.
