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 got the pleasure of explaining to people well over 250 pounds what the size portion difference is between a "small" and a "regular". They clearly haven't had a small in some time. Just spring for the regular. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, the top three beverage requests were Pinot Grigio with a side of ice, Jack & Coke, and iced tea. I work in a wine bar that only serves wine and water. We don't possess an ice machine. It's awesome explaining that several hundred times in an 8 hour shift! I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, a customer inquired in a very urgent tone, "Can you throw this out for me?" She pushed what appeared to be a wad of paper towels in my direction from across the bar. It was in fact a soiled diaper. Health code, much? I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I suggested a pet hamster to a woman who thought a cat would be too big for her son. She squinted and shook her head. "Robby has a problem with hamsters. We had one. He hid it in a very unusual place, and you know how high medical bills are these days." Whoa. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we were told to start using "Twitter" to promote a particular liquor client. I don't know how to Tweet because I'm an adult. I sent out two just to appease them. Turns out I'm supposed to churn out ten inane messages a day. I'm dumbemployed.
