At work today, a young woman asked for a book recommendation. I pointed her to Michael Chabon. I saw her at the checkout with "Twilight." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I selected a really nice chair for a customer. She sat in it and frowned. I asked what was wrong. "I wish it rocked." The chair was for a dining room table. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had a customer shout at me for a gin and tonic. I got it for him. "Where's the lime?" he shouted at me. I gave him an uncut lime and told him to suck on it. He didn't leave a tip, but it still felt good. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I saw a patient at the end of my shift. Typical hypochondriac. It's funny- people don't feel qualified to fix their plumbing. But give them Web MD, and they can cure their own cancer. Hint: You can't. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was reading off some standard sales copy about our clothing line. The client stopped me. "But how does it feel?" he asked. This is the same guy who turned down free samples a month ago. I didn't remind him. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I accidentally sent a client an email intended for my mom. He wrote back. "Either you meant this for your mom, or you really, really want my business. I love you too, son." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was helping a younger customer choose "his" new car. His parents are paying, of course. That didn't stop him from bargaining until my margins were almost non-existent. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we conducted a poll that everyone spent all day on. Customers were ignored. Sales languished. The poll? Cupcakes or Pie- which is better? (By the way, cupcakes won). I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I helped set up a new orthodontia patient. He's sixteen. That didn't stop him from asking me out. Is it bad that I'm excited for the pain his braces will bring him? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a bigshot who lives in LA came back to our Bakersfield hardware store. He still doesn't know a nail from a screw. But he has two more houses than me. I'm dumbemployed.
