At work today, curiosity got to me and I tried out a Crackberry from my coworker. A customer saw me on it and called me out. I told him not to worry- it wasn't mine. "You stole that Blackberry?" he asked me. He was horrified. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I biked to work again today. I showed up sweaty but was sent to the front of the store before I could change. A customer looked shocked. "Are you having a heart attack?" he asked. I said yes just so that I could change. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was working the tobacco aisle. One of the guys who came by was about 39. He asked for a pack of cigarettes and matches. We don't have matches, but we have lighters. "I can't do that," he said. "I'll get in trouble with my wife." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was selling a drum set to an eight year old and his dad. The eight year old was real excited, but the dad was skeptical. "I'm a little concerned," he said, "that the drums will be loud." Sir, they're drums. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a middle aged woman was shopping at our toy store. She didn't look good- white tank top and nasty hair. She asked me what was popular for five year olds. I asked her what her son or daughter liked. "Son or daughter?" she said. "My granddaughter has a five year old." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we had a customer ask if we had $5 footlong sandwiches. We rolled our eyes and said yes. We asked which one she wanted, and she said the $5 ham. We made, wrapped it, and got to the register before the woman asked, "Wait. What size sandwich did I get?" I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was registering an incoming student for her classes. She said she wanted to be premed, so I suggested Chemistry 201, Calc 234, and Physics 103. She looked at me and tilted her head. "Isn't there an easier way to be premed?" I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I got to have lunch with a potential buyer of our clothes. Halfway during the lunch, he got a call that his wife was leaving him. I don't think I made the right call- I still showed him all the samples anyway. He still bought- and I felt terrible. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, somebody blanked on the name of one of our biggest Midwestern clients. It wasn't a good moment. Even worse, I began blanking on his name myself. It turns out we share the same first name too. That didn't help though. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, they made me act more formal with all the clients. Now I use the phrase "Mr." and "Mrs." All the time. Even when it comes to five year old kids. I'm sucking up to a kid who can't even read yet. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we started celebrating customers' birthdays with a song. You know, "Happy happy birthday," with the clapping and all of that. Ugh. It would be OK. But we had about 8 birthdays today. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was working in the Hamptons. Yeah, great stuff. All these tourists come in and try to act like locals. Today I had one who asked me where the "real Thai places were." Uh, there's no secret Thai place the locals visit. I'm dumbemployed.
