^^ yah we have the same problem at our office. this street guy came in asking to use the bathrooms on our floor (4th flr) but they're locked. he come's and asks us for the key but we tell him it's for clients only. so he says he wants to be a client. the receptionist asks him do you know what we do (we're an architecture office). then the guy just leaves.

this was probably the most insulting thing I ever heard when i went down to the states.

Woman "Are u from Mainland China?"
Me "No, I'm from Vancouver, Canada"
Woman "Oh Wow, u speak such good enlgish. u must practice it all the time. They have chinese ppl in Canada? Does your family run a sushi restaurant?"

d*mn americans!!!

When I worked at A&W with Ef-8 back in the day an old lady comes in one day...

old lady: "do you bottle your own pop here?"
Me and Ef-8 look at eachother, then look into the back of the store, look at eachother again
Ef-8: "Um, no maam."
old lady: "do you sell pop by the quart?"
Me and ef-8 look at eachother again; obviously we both have no idea what a quart is.
me: "I don't think we do ma'am"

the showroom manager at the dealership tries to wash his own car.... takes the powerwasher out to wash the car, presses the trigger and the watter drizzles downwards

Him: "This powerwasher isn't very powerful eh? I was expecting a load of pressure."
Me: "...umm..yeah about that, you may want to turn on the compressor first."
Him: "what? isn't it always on? ... so.. where's the sud?"
Me: "that would be the tub that says sud on it"
Him: "...right."

So i was working at the Bay as a vendor selling this toy, which is not important. and they need you to wear a badge or tag that says "vendor".

so one day some guy comes up to me and asks if my name was "vendor". which it is not of course.


i thought that was kinda funny.

So i work at a restaurant that serves breakfast, (bacon and eggs etc.)

This one guy asked me;

"Where do your eggs come from?"

so i responded;

"... from chickens"

At first i thought he wanted free range or egg beaters or somethin, but nope, he actually wondered if our eggs came from chickens... uhh, sorry but we're fresh out of ostrich
