Things overheard at Thanksgiving Dinner

Nov
21

Random conversation with my family….

“If you put your finger in it, you have to eat it.”

“This salad needs to be tossed.”

“I saw him stick a few things in there.”
“Where?”
“In the bottom”

“If I pet your snake, will it bite me?”

More to follow…(this will be updated throughout the day)

Wrong Number Prank

Sep
27

So many people call my house phone with the wrong number, that I have considered canceling it all together. But I get the line for free, so I figure its best just to keep it around and just not answer the phone.
Occasionally, I get the opportunity to have fun with a caller. Now in this case, I received another call destined for some local Chinese food restaurant. I answer, “Hello?” and the caller proceeds to state he wants to place an order. So I ask him, “What do you want?”.
I’m not sure why I didn’t stop him, but he continued to rattle off his order and I began typing.

This will be a TOGO order.
-chicken chow mein
-fried won tons with a side of sweet and sour
-large order of orange chicken
-fried shrimp

So, Robert, thanks for calling, but when you show up in 15 minutes, you won’t have any food waiting for you. And on top of that I’m forwarding my calls to PETSMART for the night. Think about it. Peace out!

So last night we made a drunken pit stop at McDonald’s after the Drake concert. Just a quick run before midnight so that our hangovers wouldn’t be as bad in the morning. As we order our cheeseburgers, the order taker informs us that they are out of meat. Seriously, they were out of meat. Since it was 15 minutes before midnight, I asked if this was due to Lent. Apparently not. How does a McDonalds run out of meat? What else do they have? Why stay open? Did they shut down their grills? This is absolutely absurd and I expect answers. Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Bacon Milkshake

Feb

This looked like a good idea despite being on a diet. Bacon flavored milkshake with real bacon added. And the RedBull was just to provide extra energy in case of comatose from the high levels of sugar. Turned out, the milkshake is not very good at all

Cakes gone wrong

This story clearly illustrates the problem with ordering over the phone:
[answering phone] “Cakey Cake Bakery, Jill speaking! How can I help you?”
“Hi, I need to order a cake for my boss. We have a photo of him playing golf that we’d like to put on it, though – can you do that?”
“Of course! Just bring the photo in on a USB drive and we’ll print it out here.”
“Great, I’ll bring it by this afternoon.”
Later…
“Hey, Jill, what am I putting on this cake?”
“Oh, check the counter; I left the jump drive out for you there.”
[calling from the back room] “Really? This is what they want on the cake?”
“Yeah, the customer just brought it in.”
“Okey dokey!”
