I work at a store that sells items for teachers. We have books, classroom decoratives, toys, games, pencils, etc.
The name of the store is basically - Tools For Teaching.
This is a REAL call that I received recently.
Tools for Teaching. This is Katie. How can I help you?
Uh. Hi. This is John. Do you guys have Teacher’s supplies?
We sure do John.
Like…right there in the store?
Yes sir. Right here in the store.
That I can come in and look at?
Of course. The store is full of all kinds of teachers supplies.
And you have them right there? In the store?
Sure do. Are you looking for something specific that I can help you find?
Not really. I just need some stuff.
(I look around, searching for a hidden camera or someone on a cell phone, pranking me.)Well, we have lots of stuff.
Are you open?
Are you open later?
What about in August? Will you be open in August?
And you have teachers supplies IN the store? (still doubtful that I'm telling the truth)
Ok. See you in August before 6.
Oh..kay. See you in Aug-
This conversation got me thinking about all the stupid things I have heard while at work.
There have been some doozies. I realized that I have so many stories like this, that I could make a 5 million part series.
What are some stupid things that YOU hear at work?
