Thanks for making this whole situaion awkward (PIOG)

So, I was just talking to someone at my job, and he asked me what was the most awkward paperwork I've ever received. I said it's a toss up I get a lot.. but the two that stand out the most.. is when I had to call and ask what the business purpose of two  purchases were. The purchases being:

1. Condoms (I swear we're not prostitutes, LOL)

2. Penis shaped pasta.

Can you imagine that phone call? "Um, I need to know the business purpose of the condoms and penis shaped pasta...???"

I always want to end the call with Thanks for not sending the paperwork with an explanation, thus forcing me to ask. Thanks for making this whole situation at work AWKWARD!

LOL

Yea, wow, luckily, I have never had to utter either of those two questions.

My most awkward which I will only share since it was over a decade ago now, and no one would know who or where I practiced--- -"why are you worried about mercury exposure in your vagina?" .......... "Oh, I see, maybe a meat thermometer is not the best tool for that...... "

I almost fell of my little stool. And she was such a nice lady, I think that made it worse and more awkward.

The most rewarding phone calls are when I have to call customers who appear to be students instead of teachers. We sell teaching guides and have a policy against selling to students for obvious reasons. I have had a few students pretend to be teachers. It's always hilarious to catch them in the act. Muawahaha!
