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 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 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, this middle aged lady came into our record store. She wandered aimlessly for a while and  then walked up to me. "Do you have Adam Lambert?" she asked. I don't know which is worse. That she wanted Adam Lambert at an indie store, or that I know who he is. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was showing a house to a very young couple. I thought it might be out of their price range, but these days you never know how much kids make. They asked a few good questions and I answered. Then they asked me if they could rent instead of buy. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was playing a gig at this real stodgy place. I play drums, so usually nobody notices me. But this time I minded.  I literally had somebody trip on my feet while I was playing. Did they apologize? Take a guess. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had two customers come into the restaurant. I recognized one- and I knew the woman he was with wasn't his wife. When he left he winked at me and stretched out his hand. "It's a secret," he said. I looked at my hand- he'd given me two dollars. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had to card a kid who was clearly under 18 and trying to buy cigarettes. Instead of handing me a license, he gave me a passport. I told him I could see that it was made in a photocopier. He said that other countries were too poor to do it right. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, someone asked for a bagel with cream cheese. They looked at me blankly when I asked them what kind. We have 26 types of bagels and 12 flavors of cream cheese. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had to kick a customer off the computer at our Apple store. Somehow, he had managed to be there about three and a half hours. He had three browser windows open, one of which was playing the "Transformers 2" trailer at maximum volume. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was handling calls to city hall. Most of them were crazy, obviously, but the most disturbing ones were the ones that were almost sane. One resident asked me if the mayor even came to the office. I laughed it off. But the resident was right. I'm dumbemployed.
