I happen to be chronically ill, since i was about 17. Last time i visited my specialist, and i complained about being SO tired all the time and that it depressed me, he told me, i should view my disease and myself differently. He said: "Having Crohns disease, is like being an athlete, it's top sport for the body to deal with it, it's natural for you to be so tired,...it's the... Read More »
Several years ago I worked with a overnight delivery company. It wasn't unusual to run into all sorts of dogs when you made a delivery (including nasty ones.) One day, I walked up to a lady's house where the front door was open. As soon as I rang the bell, I heard the jingle of dog tags & realized I was too far away from the vehicle to get back there in time, so I braced myself.... Read More »
I work at Wal-Mart as a Wireless Sales Associate (basically electronics), and we have this one reoccurring older African-American customer who comes in with the assumption that we are some type of IT or Geek Squad. Well anyways, he comes in about a week ago, and brings his laptop. The laptop that he has is a Compact with Windows XP (a bit outdated I must say). Anyways, he pulls... Read More »

I used to work in a convenience store a few summers ago and there are a lot of bars around it. During the local fringe, this drunk walked in, and puked all over the ATM machine in the store, and people wanted me to clean it. I refused cuz it was a bio-hazard and not a part of my job. One of them knew the manager and called him and handed the phone to me. In the end, I had to clean... Read More »
I'm overweight (hit it, comment section), and sometimes at work I'll hear kids whisper, "She's fat, Mommy" or some variant. I usually ignore them as the embarrassed parent hushes the kid. (I don't care. I'm well aware of my fatass). One day, a boy excitedly grabbed his dad and said, "She's got a baby in her pants!" I burst out laughing and decided that it was definitely time for...

I work at a amusement theme park as a children's ride operator. I was operating the children's bumper cars when I was approached by a really pissed off parent. He was telling me that his daughters car was broken and that it was a waste of time lining up and unless she gets another ride there would be hell to pay. Looking over to his child it turns out she didn't even have her... Read More »
I work at a septic tank company, on a certain day a coworker and I were standing in a lake full of feces shoveling the stuff into suction tubes. My coworker suddenly became aggravated and decided it would be a good idea to throw his shovel down in angst. The feces proceeded to splash off the shovel and fly into my face and mouth. Needless to say it was a shitty day at work.
I'm a rather small girl weighing in at only 100lbs and I was working at a college town pub. One night a douche randomly started freaking out and decided to use my face as a punching bag breaking my nose. My employer still made me come in to work the next day.
i work at a motorcycle shop and i was helping this guy buy a helmet and i casually mentioned that i'd recommend purchasing gloves too, as road rash can be killer on hands. He held his hands up to show me he was already missing two fingers. i just smiled and said.....so you know,then.
For the past 6 months I have been working as a clerk in a gas station. And for the past 6 months I have been slowly contemplating quitting. One night a Hispanic man absolutely demolished our the restroom. I walked in to discover our bathroom had been turned into a scale model of hiroshima. Shit had literally hit the fan. My manager said I needed to clean it up so I took a 15min... Read More »
I wait tables at a semi-upscale Italian restaurant. One Saturday afternoon, a man, his wife and their four year old daughter came in for a lengthy lunch. I just smiled when the guy immediately announced upon sitting down that he was a lawyer. I didn't even care when he insisted upon a taste test of the fountain sodas he wanted to order for his daughter (he claimed that fountain... Read More »
Workin at a convenience store I get asked the really irritating question like "How much are the 5 cent candies?", or "How many 5 cent candies can i get with 25 cents?" You may be thinking so what, they're just kids asking. I get asked by grown men. Other questions that burn me are "How much are the DVD's on the $2.99 rack?". I politely respond they're $2.99. They follow up with... Read More »
I work for a major cellphone provider with an old woman who has been with the company for 10+ years. Today I went to clear the history on the communal computers since she doesn't know how to do it and refuses to learn. Some of her searches? Cats and Tapeworms.
As a teen I was the main babysitter in my neighborhood. I was pretty much booked solid every weekend so I had a rare open Saturday and this family down the street called me, begging me to watch their angels. Their 2 kids were adopted and had never heard the word "no" in their tender lives. Well, the boy would not go to bed that night. Every time I got him upstairs and into bed... Read More »
