  1. So I put in a job application to the Comissary (military grocery store) about 4 months ago, so I called to see if they still had my application on file. Here's the conversation I had with who would be my "boss":

    (In 'short woman philipino accent')
    "Kaneohe Military Commisary how may I help you?"

    Hi I'm calling to see if you guys still have my job application on file?

    "Job application? What job application?

    ...application for a job as a cashier.

    "What? We don't have applications."

    ...yes, I filled one out and turned it into you guys...

    "Oh you mean STUDENT applications" (Like there's a HUGE difference)

    Correct

    "Ok one second, I'm going to put you on hold, okay?"

    Ok. *wait 10 seconds*

    "Hello?"

    Hi.

    "Who is this?" (its the same woman btw)

    ..Garrett Mireles I'm calling about the application.

    "Oh ok." (I give her my name and she checks)

    "*Then she said some stuff about how to fill out applications*"

    ...yes I know, I did that already. It was 4 months ago, I'm calling to see if you guys still have it on file.

    "4 MONTHS AGO? WUT U MEAN 4 MONTHS AGO?"

    (I hate those kinds of questions..)

    ....I turned one in 4 months ago. That's why I'm calling...

    "No sorry your name isn't in here"

    Well some lady told me you were on a lunch break, and that she would give you the application. But apparently she didn't...

    "Do you know that you will be talking to customers"

    (No **** lady, I'm a cashier)

    ...um, yeah

    "Well the way your talking to me know, your tone isn't very nice. You just need to BACK OFF

    (bewildered)

    Um, I'm fine.

    "Goes into another series of sentences about me backing off, and saying I won't get a job with my attitude"

    I'm fine I'm fine, I'm sorry. I'm not mad at you.

    "Well my name is Annie come get an application tomorrow."

    Alright, and I'm sorry..*she hung up*

    Goddamn, some people! :rolleyes: I'm not even the intimidating/confrontational kind of person either..she'll see that when I meet her tomorrow, but sheesh!

    I think you might have missed it.

    Remember the scene in Office Space where Tom is trying to convince the Bobs he has people skills?
     
  6. Heh, I myself was thinking it was an episode of that "Real World" show.

    Even more so, I felt like Adam Sandler in "Anger Management" when he's like:

    "I'm fine I'm not angry! I'm relaxed" And everyone is getting on his case :D
     
  7. Ohhh right

    I like the scene when they are passing out the cake and he doesn't get any :D

    I wasn't hijacking anything. Garrett sorta ran with an example I used. Blame him for a sub par Office Space Hijacking. (I'da gone straight to the People Skills comment iffin I was. No beating around the bush if you're OS jacking...)
     
  18. Lol I'm not a poser, I don't remember all the characters names.

    I'm not a fan of the movie, but it was funny. How did we get from irriting philipino women to office space anyway?
     
  19. how did we get from harry potter to Star Wars in the other thread?
     
  20. I had this one earlier:

    Wet Poopie
    The kind where you wipe your butt fifty times and it still feels unwiped, so you have to put some toilet paper between your butt and your underwear so you don't runie them with a stain.
