“A joy that’s shared is a joy made double.” Proverb
WORKPLACE WHISPERS. WE’VE GOT LOADS OF THEM!
To the woman in the grocery store(where I work) who pretended to look at something on the shelf just so she could set her empty Timmie’s cup there and act like she forgot it: I saw you!
| Knock Knock.
Just had a full safety meeting about proper usage of doors. I shit you not.
| Temper Tips.
I work in a food industry. I was washing my hands at a sink as a customer approached my display counter. “Give me this!” the customer stated without delay. “I’ll be there in just a moment” I replied. “I want this NOW!” they demanded. I weighed up their food and they went to jolt off without their merchandise. I reminded them they were leaving their product behind – I suppose they thought I’d follow them to the cash register? They snapped their food away and went off. I watched them head up to a till and by chance noticed they dropped a dollar after their transaction. I seemed to be the only one who noticed this. Perhaps this was a subconscious tip from the temper man. It got myself a coffee the next morning *\0/*
I work at a supermarket. Obviously pages are a common thing. The odd time I’ll page: “Repeat page” after someone says something over the intercom. I’ll even do this a second or third time prompting them to state their page over and over. Usually after people repeat them self twice more they get the hang of it. It’s simply a joke! I find it amusing.
| Toilet Time.
I like to pee on company time.
Even if it’s only 15 minutes until my lunch break or the end of my shift, I’ll ask my supervisor if I can run quickly up to the bathroom.
So I can pee on company time.

So the boss man at work says I could leave at 1am so I can go and get some good shots of the meteors as long as I finish these two jobs. (1am being 2 hours worked) so I did 3.5 hours of work in under 2 hours.
Guy changes his mind to 4 hours and I didn’t get enough pictures to do what I wanted. What a dick face.
| Toilet Text
That moment you find a coworker contact on your phone you forgot you had and you read the last conversation which mentioned using the washroom(at work) and feeling as though you’re in labour. ..No wonder that chat went dry. :[

Seriously if you could NOT “vape” at my service counter that would be great! (~.^)
| Lead astray lines
Apparently “Take a number from the post behind you.” is extremely confusing. Though ironically it never seems to fail when one single person wants something from the service counter! :/
| Kindness registered.
When you’ve been swamped with demanding customers and are feeling hurried, and you haven’t had a moment to clear the desk, and the next customer says, “Take your time. I’m in no hurry.”
I recently worked a shift in seafood. ..It took me a while to learn the scales.

| No news is good news.
While at work I checked for mail for my department three times. Each time slightly surprised as to how there was nothing. A little while after my third attempt a light-switch went off — It was Saturday!

I used to do the social media work for my organization, and never had any complaints. Then a new director took over, and she insisted on taking over the social media work. She told me, ‘But you can continue to do what you do.’ Um … what? No thanks. I quit working on the social media site, and now the organization can’t understand why it’s gone to crap.
You know that age-old concept of placing near empty bottles upside down to get the last of it’s remnants? Well I did that once with lubriderm – though meaning to use it up I let it sit out uncovered.. for days. When I got around to it I used up the last bit of the moisturizer from a container I had below the bottle, applied it to my face and left for work. I was surprised to see on my first break(four hours into the shift) that the cream had dried up in what looked like rolled flakes. IT LOOKED LIKE MY FACE HAD DANDRUFF!
Why is human hibernation not a thing??
A quick note here from the Admin.
This entry is something I got in October. Perfect timing, really. It’s just starting to get cold and it’s been a busy summer. Adulating is tiring. Wouldn’t you just love to hibernate? I’d love to retire! 😀 – Kyle ♥
