At work today, I promised that I'd stick to basics instead of taking on an even more difficult project. That didn't go so well. Three minutes in, my coworker proposed that we do some "extra credit." That's why I'm still at the office at 10PM. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we were locking up the liquor case when this 15 year old kid stepped up and offered to finish. I'm lazy, so I let him. When I came back, the key was in the lock. I asked him to explain- he thought that people would be intimidated by seeing a key. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a bunch of anxious tourists came into the store. They said that they were lost and looking for a safe way to get home. I work in Times Square. They didn't need to worry. But one of them still left the store crying. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had to start a temp job because I got laid off from my old job. My boss asked me if I knew how to use Microsoft Excel. I have a Computer Science Masters Degree. But he was right- I don't know Excel. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I served a cup of coffee to a middle aged guy and asked him if he needed room for cream. He said no. Then I watched him empty out some of the coffee into the trash and pour cream in. Did he not trust me to do it? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was editing a document when it got all garbled. Some weird error turned the apostrophes into random characters. Now I have to go through and find and replace all the screwy letters. The document is 1,062 pages long. It's about taxes. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was hoping to find a parking space near my office. We don't have a lot- just street parking- so it's always a pain. Finally I found a perfect spot, or at least I thought it was. Turns out those firemen don't like it when you park in front of their hydrants.  I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss took me aside to inform me of a STRICT policy he was going to begin enforcing, requiring me to be in the office by 8am sharp (mind you, I have a 40 mile commute). He hasn't shown up before 9:30 for the past couple months (mind you, he has a 5 mile commute). I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, two guys came in and ordered pretty impressive entrees. Then it turned out they had a two for one coupon. Well, I put it in and made the changes. Instead of tipping me for the full bill, they tipped me for the bill after the discount. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had the longest babysitting shift with a really collicy baby. It was terrible and just nonstop crying. At 11, the mom and dad got back and asked if I could stay the night. They offered me 10 extra bucks. I did it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, our computers kept going down, as well as the rest of the power in the building. Finally, somebody investigated the generator. It turns out the problem was a squirrel. He'd been barbecued and was still stuck in the works. At least we couldn't smell it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, nobody was on the job. Like, nobody. I don't know if it was a weird holiday or what. But we have ten registers. Three cashiers showed up. And I'm the only good one. I think I have carpal tunnel now. I'm dumbemployed.
