What is the stupidest thing someone has said to you at work?

Posted by   + Show Post

i made this post a long time in NC, but I'll do it again because why the hell not.


What is the stupidest thing someone has said to you at work? Customer, co-worker, boss, whoever.

Mine!

When I was a server, a guy said he wanted fish and chips but didn't like cod, so I suggested he try the tilapia that is served with the fish tacos.

I told him it was delicious (truth!) but slightly different from a traditional fish and chip dinner - the tilapia is fried and about the same size, but it's triangular and it's breaded as opposed to battered.

We discussed the whole tilapia-vs-cod thing at great length and he decided to go with the talapia.

He get his food and immediately sends it back because the fish "is the wrong shape."

SERIOUSLY YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS.

I worked retail and one of my regulars came up and told me that Mexicans were the reason for the bedbugs. Another person came up to me and said I thought white sales were for selling white people(I'm white she was Mexican).

LOL! A mom came into the nap room super loud and ghetto on her phone. She's like, "Where my baby!? You see him!? There you are! Baby! Get up! Let's go see daddy at the jail!" I was annoyed at how loud she was in the nap room, but I couldn't say anything. I was in shock, just floored. Like: :O It was super weird!

I always get asked if I'm Mexican when people hear me speak Spanish. I have even had Hispanics ask me what part of Mexico I am from.
I'm pale (think Irish) with blond hair and blue eyes.

My maiden name is Sanchez. A coworker once asked me, "Are you Mexican or married to a Puerto Rican or something?"

Um.

I had a boss who could not form proper sentences and it drove me crazy because I couldn't believe this woman could order me around. "Is you serious? I ain't got no problem and ain't be worryin' about it." It inspired me to get my degree so I could move up.

ahahaha, i understand all too well. i was a bookseller at Borders.

"Do you have that one book? It has a blue cover? Maybe it's a green cover.

It was featured on [obscure television show nobody watches] last week."

I DON'T KNOW, LET ME FETCH MY CRYSTAL BALL.

Quoting Anonymous:

Okay, here is mine. I'm a librarian. A woman approaches the desk:

Her: "I'm looking for a book"

Me: "Sure! What's the title?"

Her: "I don't know."

Me: "Okay,who is the author?"

Her: "I don't know. It's about a missing kid."

Me: "Is it fiction or non-fiction?"

Her: I don't know."

Me: "Is it a new book or an older book?"

Her: "I don't know. My co-worker was reading it the other day." *looks at me expectantly.*

Seriously?? It's not like we keep a list of everything her coworkers read!

I used to manage the staff of a preschool/daycare and had a girl quit 2 days in because she "didn't think she would actually have to work with kids."
