The Dean Rev. Dave Jones is a cool guy.
I have been trying all day to write an email that didn’t reek with condescension and that ended with something more revelatory than “wash your hands and cover your mouth when you sneeze.” I have thus-far failed to do so. Members of our community have been communicating throughout the day to represent that we should let you know that we are continuing to observe the Swine Flu situation, So...

No One Ever Said It Would Be Boring…
Grocery Store | Peterborough, Ontario, Canada
(This happened on my first day of the job.)
Me: “Welcome to [grocery store].”
Customer: “Take off your glasses.”
Customer: “They’re all pink and red; I can’t see your eyes!”
Me: “That’s because they’re tinted that way for a reason. Red increases contrast, and I’m photophobic.”
Customer: “What? You’re afraid of light? D*** VAMPI–”
Me: “–NO, no, no. It just means bright light hurts my eyes.”
Customer: “All right, ring these up.”

Me: “Sorry, just a moment.” *grabbing phone* “What’s the code for–”
Customer: “THESE. ARE. PEACCHEESSSS!”
(He grabs one of the bags of peaches, swings it around until it TEARS open and peaches go flying everywhere, then he runs out of the store.)
Coworker: *on the phone* “Aha, so you met the peaches guy on your first day? I remember my first time meeting him…”

Fuck you!– To which the correct comeback should always be “As hard as you want.”
