WELCOME to Thursday, December 14, 2017.
Here’s the story…So I’m a female but I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese and English. Now looking at me you wouldn’t know I can speak Mandarin, which is why I find it absolutely hysterical to mess with people when they come through my line speaking Chinese and I
understand every word their saying My coworkers find ” especially hysterical.
Okay, so the other day this Chinese couple came through my line and I asked
them (In English) all of the questions about the bags and If they had their
rewards cards, all of that fun stuff.
Anyway, I started ringing up their stuff and the wife said to her husband
‘Tell her not to bruise the bananas in Chinese and I didn’t say anything. The wife
said tell the stupid girl to go faster in mandarin. I smiled at her and pretended as if I
had no idea what she was saying
She kept commenting on how my hair was like a boys (I have short hair. its honestly
not even that short) and how her grandfather would have gone faster than I was
going. All of this in Chinese.
Then she said make sure she doesn’t forget the water· in Chinese,
and I replied in English, ‘I won’t forget the water”
I watched with enjoyment as a look or sheer terror spread across her face as she realized
I understood everything she had said before. She just stood there with her mouth open
and her husband said (in Chinese) This is Why you shouldn’t trash talk employees while
their standing right in front of you and’ I replied (in English)’He’s night
They paid. The husband apologized. Moreover, when they walked out the door my manager, coworker, and I were laughing so hard. Even though being a cashier sucks. it sometimes makes my day a little brighter when something like that happens. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Wednesday people and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!
“A family in Florida took their Elf on the Shelf to the ER after their dog
tore it apart, and the doctors were able to save it. While the guy in the
next room was like, ‘Don’t worry – my broken leg will be just fine!
You take care of that elf!'” -Jimmy Fallon
“Experts in Israel are trying to re-create a wine used in the time of Jesus.
Apparently, all they need is some water and Jesus.” -Conan O’Brien
“Some parenting experts are suggesting that the holiday tradition of the elf
on the shelf may actually be harmful to children. So instead just take them
to the mall and let them sit on a weird old dude’s lap.” -Seth Meyers

The pastor of our church began his sermon with this story:
“I was on a plane last week, from Chicago to California, when we ran into some very severe turbulence.
As it got worse, the passengers became more and more alarmed, and even the flight
attendants began to look concerned. Finally, one of them noticed that I had ‘Rev.’ in front
of my name on the passenger list, came over to me, and said, ‘Sir, this is really frightening. Do you suppose you could, I don’t know…do something religious?'”
“So I took up a collection.” 😎
