Going out in public always has its risks…for these people, they found themselves in very awkward situations because…well, their brains may have stopped working for a moment! I’m sure they didn’t mean to sound like they didn’t graduate from high school. In fact, when they woke up that morning, they probably thought it would be a pretty easy day. Go to work, eat some food, come home, go to sleep. And then THIS happened…
I was signing the receipt for my credit card purchase when the clerk noticed I had never signed my name on the back of the credit card. She informed me that she could not complete the transaction unless the card was signed. When I asked why, she explained that it was necessary to compare the signature I had just signed on the receipt. So I signed the credit card in front of her. She carefully compared the signature to the one I had just signed on the receipt. As luck would have it, they matched.
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: many deer were being hit by cars and he no longer wanted them to cross there.
My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the individual behind the counter for “minimal lettuce.” He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg.
I was at the airport, checking in at the gate, when the airport employee asked, “Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?”
I said, “If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?”
He smiled and nodded knowingly, “That’s why we ask.”
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine, when she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals to blind people when the light is red. She responded, appalled, “What on earth are blind people doing driving?”
At a good-bye lunch for an old and dear coworker who is leaving the company due to “down-sizing,” our manager spoke up and said, “this is fun. We should have lunch like this more often.” Not another word was spoken. We just looked at each other like deer staring into the headlights of an approaching truck.
Oh! That last one made me cringe! I’ll bet that manager thought about that awkward moment for the next few days, wondering why those words left his mouth! These are the kind of things that will keep me up at night, thinking, “why did I say that?!” So embarrassing!
