Dang. I don't think I'da told that one. Of course it could be worse. My daughter once purchased Monistat, hemorrhoid cream, and carpet cleaner at the same time. When the clerk looked at her she just said, "Don't ask" and paid cash.

I am very rarely asked to swipe my DL, so I wouldn't be able to test it any time soon. I do have a buddy who has a freaking unbelievably strong rare Earth magnet that I could use though. This thing is maybe 8 inches long, 3 inches wide and an inch thick and it can lift over a quarter ton. I think he said it has 850 lbs of force in it. It will squash your finger clean off if you let it get trapped in it.

My wife and I went to a wedding for a girl she works with last year. At the reception we, wife and I, and a few of her co-workers got in line for drinks. Keep in mind I'm now 28, my wife is 26 and her friends/co-workers which are mostly female except for one of the bank managers range in a age starting at 18. I get my beer and the girls laugh cause I always get carded, which is fine as most people say I look 19. One of her friends who was 19 at the time gets a mixed drink and doesn't get carded. WTF? It didn't bother me she was underage I just thought it was odd.

Had my oil changed today. When I got my car back, it smelled like farts and body odor.

Yes, there are indeed more inconvenient odors.

When I used to work as a mechanic one time a customer complained that his car smelled of french fries when he picked it up. The service manager was going to write up the tech who worked on the car for driving a customers car on personal business (picking up lunch) until the overweight tech pointed out the he ate so much junk food that he literally sweats french fry oil from his pores. They let him off with a warning.

That... That's just gross. Even by my standards. He just wouldn't be allowed to enter a customer's vehicle anymore if I ran the shop. And he'd be fired for it if it interfered with productivity.

I used to smoke almost two packs a day. I was also a lube and tire guy at the time. Never had a customer complain of cigarette smell. I created a strange ritual of walking, backwards, upwind, when I smoked at work. Whatever is needed to create repeat business.

It actually wasn't, the tech was just being funny (and it was). He had used the car to get lunch on a test drive and did not vary from the prescribed route (except to pull through the drive-through). The manager was just being a jerk. His productivity was very high BTW, and he contributed greatly to overall shop morale in ways that the Service Manager was always trying to undermine.

Oh, well that's all good then. Nothing wrong with a verbal in that case. I probably would have chewed his ass too. For not getting lunch for me too!
