Me: Have a good day.
Old woman: It's beautiful out today, isn't it?
Me: That's what I hear.
Old woman: But you're stuck in here, aren't you? [laughs with delight, as though this is a little joke we are sharing]
It's a common one that I'm sure we all get. Why do people think that we are just going to find that oh, so hilarious? HAHA! Yes, it is quite funny that I work during the entirety of every weekend day. What a side-splitting good time for all! It reminds me of this:
"I bet this is how you wanted to spend your Easter Sunday! Heh, heh."
"Thank god, I'm done shopping. I can finally go home and enjoy Christmas Eve! What time are you open till? Jeez, that's hours away! LOL!"
"I can't believe you're working on Christmas Day! What are you, a workaholic? Hahahahahahahahha. Go home!"
"Can you believe they're tossing one hundred dollar bills out of low-flying jet planes for the duration of the entire nine hour shift you're on? Seriously, they just started when you clocked in, and every bill that remains at 7:59 will be burned since you clock out at 8:00. Isn't it ironic? Snickerdee dee!"
And my personal favourite:
"It's really coming down out there! We're supposed to get 4,323 feet of snow in the next five minutes! Oh, you're not closing? Ho ho! I don't envy you trying to drive home in this! LMFAO."
Oh, customers. You crazy characters. You sure know how to make a girl giggle like her salad days.
- Good times!
