At work today, I explained to the ordering couple that a gyro is a mixture of lamb and beef meat. "Does lamb come from a pig?" the woman asked. "No Mam," I said, "it comes from a lamb." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we took a client out to lunch as usual. He said he didn't know whether to get a beer or not. "I don't know your culture," he told us sheepishly. He's from another state, not another country. Is Michigan really that different from Minnesota? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a client sent me a gift to "thank me for my service and close relationship." It was peanut butter and chocolate truffles. Some close relationship- I'm allergic to peanuts. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a customer walked up to me. "What's your policy on purchases?" he asked. I stared at him. "Uh, I tell you how much it is and then you pay that amount." He looked at me like I made him look stupid. "Uh, I meant returns," he said. Sure you did...sure you did. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, our company directory came out. My name was caught in a typo, and now customers call me with that name. My name is Lynda Botch. They made the o into an i. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a woman interrupted me as I was helping another customer. "Excuse me," she said, "but you need to focus on your job." Then I couldn't help either customer, because they started fighting. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had a customer come to the counter at the store. I'm standing in front of a huge assortment of cigarettes and the customer asks me, "How much are your cigarettes?" Believe it or not, they aren't all priced the same. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was taking a cigarette break outside when a customer I'd just spoken to sidled beside me and lit up. I said hey. "I'm sorry," he said. "Do I know you?" We smoked together, in silence, for five interminable minutes. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, the wifi at our coffeeshop broke down. I swear, if people in third world countries got as mad as my customers get about broken wifi, there would be no dictatorships. I was nearly killed today. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was giving samples of specialty tea at the mall. One customer always takes all my samples and comes back a half hour later. My boss says I have to cut them off. I'm 16 and it's like I'm a bartender. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had several increasingly irate emails from a customer. He said that the CDs he bought wouldn't play in either of his CD players and one is a BOSE. The CDs? They were DVDs. And the customer is a Doctor. Im dumbemployed.

At work today, I was calling our biggest clients seeing if they'd come to a company shindig. One of them whispered into the phone. "Listen," he said. "I need to know what the DJ is going to play." I asked why. He hung up immediately. I'm dumbemployed.
