My friend and I were flying on an international airline. We were in the middle section of seats. The lady sitting next to my friend had stopped in the terminal about bought a bunch of famous Mexican chain food to take on the plane. She managed to spill a full cup of coke off the tray table onto my friend's leg and didn't turn to my friend an apologize at all.
It was a full cup of sticky, cold Coke with ice.
Later, when the flight attendants were handing out drinks, she turned to my friend and said, "I'll try not to spill this one on you."
My friend replied, "Good because if you do, I'll pour mine on your head."
Seriously, how much does it take to say 'I'm sorry' to somebody?
Of course this same idiot packed a full bottle of coke in her carry on in the overhead compartment. During landing it exploded and starting dripping onto us from the bin.
I used to work at a grocery store. One day I was stocking shelves and started to work up a sweat so I took my jacket off and hung it over the handle of the cart I had with me. So I'm working, and after a bit I see this lady approach me out of the corner of my eye. She hasn't said anything so I figure she was needing something from the shelf I was working on.
I turn to look at her.
Me: "Can I help you with anything?"
That's when I notice that she wasn't waiting for my help, but was standing there with my jacket held up in front of her, inspecting it.
Customer: "Is this for sale?"
This struck me as odd because we didn't sell any clothing, just food.
Me: "Oh, that's mine."
I laughed and held out my hand, but she ignored me entirely and continued to inspect my jacket. She turned it this way and that, and looked at the size tag.
C: "How much is it?"
Me: "It's MY jacket. It's not for-"
C: "Oh I don't know if it will fit."
Dumbfounded, and frustrated that she isn't listening to me, I watch in horror as she goes to try my jacket on when she's easily twice my size. She gets an arm partway in and is struggling to make it stretch to put her other arm in. And what do I do? I step around her and strip my jacket off of her. She tries to hold onto it and I jerk it out of her hands.
C (appalled): "I'm going to buy that!"
Me: "Ma'am THIS IS MY JACKET."
A sudden wave of understanding finally floods her face.
From Viral Viral Videos: If you ever find an old coin that you think could be valuable there is only one thing to do. Do nothing! Don’t wipe it, don’t rub it, don’t try to clean it. All that handling destroys all of the potential value of the antique.
One fool thought he could make a rare coin valued around $100,000 dollar better by cleaning it. What he did was destroy 90% of the value.
