At work today, people with "Race for the Cure" shirts came into our greeting card store. I explained to my coworker that the people with the shirts were racing for the cure. He tilted his head. "Do you think they caught it?" I asked him what he meant. "The cure," he said. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss took me aside to inform me of a STRICT policy he was going to begin enforcing, requiring me to be in the office by 8am sharp (mind you, I have a 40 mile commute). He hasn't shown up before 9:30 for the past couple months (mind you, he has a 5 mile commute). I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we were informed of a small mishap with the Scantron machine. Apparently, the forms we had printed had a nearly invisible residue that broke the machine. Now we have to grade them by hand. I'm in charge of a class with 1,240 students. Each test has 100 questions.  I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, nobody was on the job. Like, nobody. I don't know if it was a weird holiday or what. But we have ten registers. Three cashiers showed up. And I'm the only good one. I think I have carpal tunnel now. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had the longest babysitting shift with a really collicy baby. It was terrible and just nonstop crying. At 11, the mom and dad got back and asked if I could stay the night. They offered me 10 extra bucks. I did it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I scheduled an airplane flight for somebody going from Chicago to Paris. I suggested that they take a brief layover in New York, but they insisted on trying to fly direct. The extra cost for a direct flight? Five thousand dollars. They still did it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a grandma came in with her grandson. She wanted to buy him a videogame at the store. The weird thing is that when she asked for something for the kid's "Gameboy," he didn't correct her. So I think there's actually some 9 year old still stuck with a Gameboy. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, this one customer came in with a hoodie so big I couldn't see his face. Plus he mumbled a lot. Finally, I did something. "Sir," I said, "I can't quite hear you." He threw the hoodie back- and it turned out that "he" was a "she." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my coworker kept sneezing inside one of our display cases. I told him to stop and he laughed. He told me not to worry, since it was allergies, not a cold, that caused the sneezing. So he may not be contagious. But his snot is still stuck to the glass. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, the corporate office dictated that we have a three percent increase in sales by the end of the month. Do they understand that they can't magically make things happen by saying they should? Apparently not- they're threatening layoffs. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we had a few customers return their organic apples. The apples looked perfectly good, but they had a problem that's happened a few times before. These apples were very, very organic. By that, I mean they still had worms. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss apparently discovered "the slow clap." Everytime someone said something, he started clapping slowly and then speeding up, like he expected all of us to join in. The sad part is that he wasn't doing any of it sarcastically. I'm dumbemployed.
