In college, our Professor told us that he could translate anything we said in English to French. My classmates said normal things like "The weather is nice today," What time is it?" And, "I would like to see a movie today." He translated into French for them, and I....well,    I said, "I love The Power Rangers," Yep it's true. I was a 21 year old College Junior admitting he loved The Power Rangers. The class was like, LOL, WTF . The Professor just had a WTF expression... He did not translate that for me. God, what a fail!
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

You attended college????  Embarrassed   The bullsh*t machine just won't quit.
Is that why you have the high paying cashiers job?
There is no grey area, you are a f**king liar, whatever you say reaks of bullsh*t.
Get over yourself dude, you just show up as sick around here.

I used "fail" as a noun once.

Oh wait, never did that. Guess I'm doing okay.

Made it to Junior, no less. Toughed out 2+ years of college yet has no aspirations beyond "Hello, my name is".

Right.

Waste of money. You don't need a degree to be qualified to ask people if they'd like some gum or a candy bar today.

That makes it so much better... a taxpayer education that someone might have actually used getting pissed away by someone who didn't use or deserve it.

Provided that it's not all more Donnash*t, which it is, so...

And MrTim, you're probably right. But let's entertain the fool.

What was the "personal" reason that the government paid for your college? Because they certainly didn't want to pay for mine.. Inquiring minds want to know.

Unless it has something to do with him having both mommy and daddy parts, I really don't even want to hear it.

Speaking about real life fails, I innocently asked a young woman customer in her 20's if the older gentleman(who appeared to be in his 70's if that was her Grandfather. She coldly replied, "That's none of your business," and looked annoyed. I thought, "Holy crap! She might just report me!" I tried to diffuse the situation by admitting I shouldn't have asked that question and apologizing. She nodded, but still looked annoyed. Later, my Assistant Manager told me she complained about me, and said the customer said I shouldn't have asked any personal questions. (I had a feeling that she was going to report me, which is why I immediately apologized. It didn't work) I explained that it was just an innocent question, and my AM acknowledged that I was just being innocent and naive, but told me to think personal questions through before I asked them.... My coworker kind of saw the customer's point. Said, "It's kind of cute and understandable when a little kid asks that kind of question, but weird as hell and kind of stupid when a grown man asks that question." My own family asked why I asked her that question.......What a huge fail!

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.  Especially when you work in retail.

I'm known to speak without thinking at my job..... I even told a Customer who was battling double Cancers that it was horrible that he had double Cancers. My coworker was shocked and admonished me saying, "Cancer victims don't want sympathy!"

I still don't think it was all that wrong that I asked innocently if the older gentleman was her Grandfather. I only apologized because she made it clear that she was annoyed and I didn't want her to report me....

It's wrong because NOTHING about a customer's personal life is any of your business. You're there to put the NyQuil in the bag and make sure they get their receipt. Unless you know the person, or they initiate conversation, your comments need to be generically related to the transaction... nothing more. 

Bad Donna, no credits this semester.
