    Eh nothing as awesome as most of the winners so far but the only thing I can think of is two summers ago when I was painting murals for an elementary school, one of the teacher's sons came up to me and asked "Are you a monster?" He then proceeded to pop out at me from around corners, put his hands up in the air and growl at me. He was probably no more than 4 years old. That was a really crazy day. It's the most random question I've been asked, especially given the sincerity.

    Ha ha, The years 98-00 were one long fog for me. Pizza Delivery is the best job evah!

    Although, one of my favorite stories...well not really a story more like a continuing saga, but when in my grocery store days there use to be this guy who'd come once a week to buy a 8 pack of hot dogs. Well, he'd buy the hot dogs and walk right outside the store and proceed to eat the hot dogs right out pack all cold and shit. That fucker would stand there and finish off the entire pack and wave good-bye to all the cashiers.

    I'm currently a manager at a Blockbuster (hoping to now to move on with my BBA in hand), and over the years I've worked there while attending school, funny stuff has happened from time to time.

    1.) Back when we carried VHS, someone came in with this dinosaur movie he rented for his son, and proceeded to tell us that during the credits of the movie, the screen would go all fuzzy and hardcore pornography would come on. He son fell asleep by that point, so he had no worries, but he felt he should tell us. I waited until later in the evening when no one was inside the store, so I put it on a mini TV behind the counter and wanted to see if it was true....and it was! It was the transition between the movie and porno that made it the best, going from fast-paced action music to moans and groans all of a sudden. I'm guessing whoever had rented it previously went to the trouble of opening the cassette and tinkering with its copying protection.

    2.) The douche bag too lazy to get out of his fuckin' truck to drop off the movie, so he pulls his bigrig up on the sidewalk to lean out the window and put the movie in the dropbox.

    3.) A buddy from work getting a BJ in the employee washroom while on break. The store grew up that day.....but then I had to think of that everytime I went to poop.

    4.) The dude who rented two movies and then, upon leaving the store, immediately put them in the dropbox.

    5.) The other dude who's dropped movies in the post office box beside the store several times, with the mail man coming the day after to return the flicks.

    6.) To ALL the respectable people who return cases with the burnt DVD they made of the movie they had rented, and then ask if they can get their pirated copy back.

    7. ) The guy who repeatedly comes in, asks if I have a certain movie, asks me to show him where it is, and then tells me "yeah, I've seen that one".

    8.) All the elderely people who ask if we carry the "skin videos".

    Speaking of which, I've always had this idea where the company should empty out all its employee washrooms, put up some shelves, beads, and shady lighting, and put a big sign over the door saying "BloXXXbuster". I've mentioned it to the Vice President the few times that I've met him, and "apparently" he just doesn't see how it'd benefit the company's family image. I know where my 10 free rents a week would go, though. :lol 

    9.) When you're bored, you play "What's Wrong With the Drop Box" (TM), where someone crawls into the dropbox, waits for someone to put a movie into the slot, and them immediately ejects it back out on the sidewalk. Sounds stupid, but it's good for a laugh when you're bored.Best to keep it on the downlow, as the store manager and district manager get pretty sour when a new round of the game crops up from time to time.

    That's....really gross. But not as gross as my grocery store story, which I actually didn't witness, thank God. I missed it by 5-10 minutes.

    Anyway, apparently this guy was just standing around the area between the doors to the store and the checkouts area. Suddenly he just shakes a bunch of shit (yes actual poo) out of his pant leg, and books it to the bathroom.

    When I came in, I saw the maintenance guy, and boy was he pissed off. Then somebody told me what happened.


    Another good one: This old lady told me to "stop fucking messing with the thing", referring to the conveyor belt at the register I was at. She didn't grasp the concept of the little laser beam, and kept moving her stuff back only to have the belt move it forward again. She thought I was messing with her. It was really awkard because then I had to ring up her stuff, and the lady right behind her had a little girl with her. Never had a 70-year-old swear at me before.

    You should be around some of my 70 year old family members. Yikes. ;-)

    When I get them I have about one swearing customer a week before they hang up. Collections is a tough job, especially when you have some idiots who've been playing with you for the past six months. Yeah, dillweed, guess you won't be laughing when we SUE you for that 10,000 you charged up at SEARS!!

    What literally blows me away though are the people stupid enough to make bomb threats, or threats of personal injury against a collector. I've had it happen a few times and I now know I should've reported some of them. I just laughed them off saying "fine, we'll just keep calling you about your unpaid debt."

    One customer I had was one especially rude fellow that used every foul and abusive word in the English language in reference to my company, CitiCards, and myself being a collector with the audacity to call him. I worked at keeping my cool and managed to talk to him where others failed. He still was uncooperative and refused to pay his bill. Once I said we'd keep calling, he went back to his normal ranting and explicitve self.

    My first job boss at Banquet table (restaurant) who fired 4 of us at once.
    We always threw chicken at each other, like baseballs, and it turned out the wings hurt worse since they were all bone, so we eventually all kept chicken wings under our belts (like pistols) so no one would F with us.
    Also pretended that we were killing the animals in the back that we were cooking. Our loud ass soundeffects were'nt the best though.
    Boss always told us to shut the f up and stuff. Then one day he walked in the back with an armload full of plates and started yelling at us like a psycho, then slipped and fell. All the plates broke (haha) and we got fired.


    Worked at a gas station and we had doorbell sound effects on our cell phones and would play them on the intercom mic as people walked in & out. Plus the bathrooms and beer cooler doors. "ding ding"

    Would also play this god aweful fast yodeling old guy on the intercom.
    Also had a bounce sound effect on the phone 'boing' and would play it to the step of peoples walk. It's like they were walking on rubber!
