5 months ago

Imagine being a high school history teacher criticized for not teaching kids about taxes, or think about a tax payment office mistakenly taken for a doctor’s office by an everyday visitor. No need to guess, because we’ve got you covered. Check out these situations from ordinary people who couldn’t help but share their stories with the world.


  • “Went to drive-thru at a Wendy’s and the person taking the order said welcome to Walmart. I was really confused, and I heard laughing, and he said I’m so sorry he works there too and was on autopilot.” © SpecificLook7215 / Reddit


  • “Work in radio. Got a call on the contest line one time.
    “Yeah, I need a hotel room,” said the caller.
    “Ok. How would you like me to help you?”
    “Well...book me one!”
    “You’re aware you called a radio station’s contest line, right?”
    “Yeah. Don’t you book hotel rooms for rock stars when they do a show in town? Book me one!” © originalchaosinabox / Reddit


  • Had a guy come into my place of work pissed off because he issued his payment date and had to pay extra to turn his phone back on. He said something along the lines of, “It was due at midnight and you all aren’t open at midnight, so how was I supposed to pay?” I calmly explained that we are open until 7:00 p.m. every day but Sunday, and he screamed, “Well unlike you I actually have a job!” At my job. Whilst doing my job. © lordgabe92again / Reddit


  • “I’m a high school teacher in Australia. I had a parent complain to me that I wasn’t teaching their daughter how to do her taxes. I’m a history teacher.© LordMoody / Reddit


  • Once my mom sent me to get Chinese takeout and my Chinese ex-girlfriend tagged along. She talked to them in Chinese, asking for authentic Chinese dishes. It was kind of funny to hear them say they don’t actually serve Chinese food. We all laughed. © PorkRoll2022 / Reddit


  • “I’m an Uber driver. One day, I picked up a lady, she was distressed, I asked if I could do anything for her, and she said ‘not unless you can take back the last forty years of my life.’ It was a very silent awkward ride.” © TenPoundsOfBacon / Reddit


  • "I was working at McDonald’s and this lady said “Can I get the Wendy’s 4 for 4?!” I said, “Ma’am, this is a McDonald’s,” and without a moment of hesitation she replied, “Indeed it is. Can I get a Big Mac?” © lukemercer / Reddit


  • Found the product I needed online. Drove to the store. Spent 20 minutes failing to find said product on the aisle it was supposed to be on. Showed the picture to multiple staff, none of whom recognised it. Finally went to the customer services desk and after 10 minutes of waiting in line got told the website I was looking at was one of their competitors. © SarcasmWarning / Reddit


  • "I once walked up to the Dunkin’ Donuts (getting something for the staff at work) counter and confidently asked for a 50 piece McNugget. The young lady at the register gave me a confused look. Me, counter-confused, and thinking she didn’t hear me, asked again for a 50 piece McNugget. The poor young lady at the register didn’t know what to do — just looked at me confusingly. Me, finally realizing...
    “I asked for a McNugget didn’t I?”
    She nodded. I put my head down, shake, and said: “50 piece munchkin, please? We bought laughed over it.” © d****ar / Reddit


  • I work at a shoe store. One time, a lady came in carrying a pair of leather shoes and, after walking around the whole store, came up to the registers looking very confused. I asked her what she was looking for, and she said, “Do you have a cobbler here?” When I said we didn’t she was like “Really? You don’t have anything in the back?” Like there’s a cobbler with a workbench hidden in some corner of our back room. I had to explain to her that there are virtually no retail stores that sell shoes offer cobbling services in this day and age, and she acted like that was the craziest thing she’s ever heard. © Arka244 / Reddit

People often find themselves in funny or awkward situations, and they like to share these stories with others. It’s common for everyday life to bring moments that make us laugh or feel a bit uncomfortable, creating stories that we enjoy telling.
