But This Is a Manure Company!

CSR #1, complaining about trainee: All this guy keeps saying is “I'm a senior engineer; I already know what I'm doing,” and flat out refuses to listen to what I'm telling him. I mean, it's just a title, guy. Stop being a dick.
CSR #2: Oh, yeah? Well I'm a customer service representative. I don't represent shit!

“Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Punch-out,” by Joe the Cashier

Cashier: My nephew started swearing up a storm at me, and I almost punched him. Then he started saying, ‘Uno, dos, tres,’ and I realized it was Spanish he learned from Dora. Damn, I almost punched him, because I didn’t know what he was sayin’. I also hate those kids that used to run into the store when they saw those Barney footprints by the door… I used to want to punch them, too.

Woman #1: Well, you’re going to be surrounded by naked, gyrating ladies, and that’s sexist and outrageous!
Woman #2: Really? I was looking forward to seeing my sister.
