At work today, I was restoring a really nice old desk from the 1910s. I'd finally finished applying varnish to the top when I examined the bottom. The legs were intact, but on the bottom of this five thousand dollar desk, some little kid had stuck a wad of gum. A big wad. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I asked a woman if she wanted her groceries in "Paper or Plastic". She replied "Milk". I put them in plastic.
I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I emailed my re-re-re-re-recorrected report to my boss, who was working from home. He called me up on my way home (35mi commute) to tell me I sent the wrong report. After 30 minutes of him accusing me of being incompetent, he realized he was opening the wrong email. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had a customer come in whose English wasn't too good, but I couldn't tell what nationality he was. Anyway, he sat down in the chair and I started cutting his hair. I asked him what kind of hair cut he wanted. "Skunk look," he said proudly. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I showed my boss a new draft of some stories that I've been working on for our company newsletter. He stared at it for a while and grimaced. "Once the newsletter gets popular," he said, "maybe we'll actually get some good stories." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I started tracking how many times the door opened and shut. I marked it on a tally sheet in front of me and made sure to get a big piece of paper. Unfortunately, business isn't so good right now. At the end of the day, I had four marks. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today,  I cleaned some of the sample tables at our furniture store. Glass tables. Naturally, a little five year old comes in with his terrible mom. He was just tall enough to smear his grubby little fingers on all of my clean tables. I got out the Windex again. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I mowed my neighbor's long for the princely rate of five dollars per yard (front and back). I finished after three hours and went to get my money. He had a big smile on his face. He said he had a tip for me too. I was happy. Then he handed me a Sacajawea dollar. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we started scanning IDs instead of using our punchcards to punch in. Our boss stood next to the scanner the entire time. He said he didn't trust it. It's a scanner. If he wanted to catch people being bad, he should have checked out the break room. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had two college aged kids claim to have AAA memberships and, therefore, a discount. I asked for their membership numbers or their cards. They looked at each other and ran into the woods. Then they came back because I hadn't opened their car yet. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I started my shift thinking I would get to leave early. Then we had about ten orders come in for pizzas with everything on them. That's unusual for us. Then it happened again. I smell like anchovies now and it won't wash out. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we had an all you can eat pasta special. I've found there's always one fat guy who gets the most out of it at any all you can eat place. Well, we have ours. Turns out he's extra special. He complained when we closed at 11PM. I'm dumbemployed.
