People with no sense of humour...

We were in BHS earlier, buying the last couple of Christmas presents.

We needed to get a couple of little buts for my dad to compliment his main prezzie, so picekd up some shortbread biscuits and one of those multipacks of various real ales. Job done.

So I go to pay for the items, and the woman has trouble scanning them through the till, she tries a few times. Eventually it works.

She tries to explain 'It first asks if you're 18, then it asks if you're 21'

Fast as lightening, I flash the cheekiest smile I could muster and replied 'What, to buy shortbread?'

Now I thought that was a reasonably amusing thing to say, it's not gonna win any comedy awards, but it at least warrants a smile, right?

'No' the woman says, in all seriousness 'It's for the alcohol'


Merry smegging christmas to you too, you miserable old hag.....

Aw, she's been stuck behind the till serving all sorts during the day and was getting a bit tired. She probably had a d'oh! moment after you'd gone.

I don't get it. So did you have to be 18 to buy the biscuits or what?

Re: People with no sense of humour...

Working in a shop means you have to deal with all sorts, you get idiots, weirdos etc. then you get jokers and generally nice people.

I'd rather have somebody that makes a joke, than an idiot or weirdo. Perhaps she had been having a day of the freaks and you threw her!

I know...when we had our first baby lots of idiot women would ask if I got what I was hoping for...I used to reply (with a deadpan face) that I really wanted a Labrador.

How I loved the look of utter confusion on their faces

Re: People with no sense of humour...

I had a very similar occurrence at work once, needs a little back story I'm afraid, but I'll try to make it short

We run studies which on our management system usually have a ID code, along the lines of X1234Y5678.
A pretty senior project management was asking me the other day to find some information for him, and we came across a study which instead of having a single letter in the middle, had the letters 'BC', so I said
"I wonder why it's a BC code, maybe it's a REALLY old study!"
and he said
"No, it's quite new"

There was a pregnant pause, and then I left it at "oh"
