At work today, I got up the nerve to ask out a regular at our floral store. I was nervous, but I gave her an extremely rare flower we just got in and asked her for coffee. She asked me when I didn't work so she wouldn't have to see me anymore. And she still took the flower. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was accosted by an older woman who demanded to know where we were. "New Jersey," I answered. Her response? "Then why are there so many [expletive] 'I Love New York' shirts around here?" I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we encountered a plethora of male patrons perched at the bar with legs widely spread so as to take up as much space as humanely possible during our dinner rush. Were these gentleman just super territorial while they sipped their chardonnays? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was often asked for "red wine" or "white wine." I work in a wine bar with over 30 wine listings encompassing all varieties and types. Asking for "red" or "white" without reviewing the menu makes me die a little inside. Don't make me chose for you. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I added a new app to my iPhone that locates sex offenders. Turns out our building is surrounded by them. I don't think it's a good thing that I work at a toy store. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I sold my five hundredth washer after quite a few years. Good deal. The customer wasn't so great though. He bargained me down to $250 off because he knew I wanted the milestone. I got greedy. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my shoes were untied. I bent over on the store floor to tie them, and when I looked up, a customer was looking down. "Sleeping on the job," he said. "An American tragedy." I stood up and walked away. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a client of ours hired us for a second job. They commended the "great work" we'd done on the first. One detail. We haven't started the first job yet. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a young woman came to our fast food restaurant for literally the seventh day in a row. "How have you been?" I asked and smiled. "I'm sorry," she said. "Do we know each other?" Lady, I've memorized your order. That's probably more intimate than your boyfriend. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a guy I've never seen before came into our neighborhood bodega. He sidled up to my register and smirked. "Where's the pharmacist?" he asked. Our store is the size of a closet. I don't know where I'd hide a pharmacy. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was working the library front desk. A cute kid came up and asked for a library card. I asked if his mommy or daddy was around to help. He frowned. "They went away." At first, I was horrified. But then I realized they were just looking at the used book pile. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was trying to sell a guy a nice pool table. I asked if he wanted green or red felt. "How about something with stripes?" Needless to say, he didn't turn out to be in the market for a $3,000 table. I'm dumbemployed.
