    We went shopping about thirty minutes ago. While we were in the store, my wife loads two three pound bags of frozen wild blueberries. We finish shopping and go to check out. I don't know how it happened but when we got home, one of those bags of blueberries was missing. They're about $12 per bag.

    So my wife calls the store and asks if they found them and they did. "Come by the self-checkout and they'll be there." I drove my wife to the store (she can't drive) and she went in to get them. She asks the lady about the blueberries and the lady gets them out of the ice cooler but before she hands them over, she says "Can I have your name?". My wife says "Why do you need my name?" Grocery store lady: "I want to make sure you're the right person." Wife: "But I didn't give my name when I called."

    The lady looks my wife up and down and reluctantly hands over the blueberries.

    On the way home, I get a really good idea. I couldn't get my wife to do it so I had to do it. I called the store and said to the woman who answered "Hey, we're on our way to come get those blueberries. My wife is coming in to get them. Her name is Melinda." Grocery store lady: "But we already gave those to a woman who came in here asking about them."

    I just go "Aww man..." and hang up.

    To me, the reason it's funny is because the grocery lady had a thought that someone might happen to walk in and just SAY they were the person who came to get their blueberries. And then she might have a niggling suspicion that she gave away someone's blueberries to an imposter. Well, might as well give her her money's worth. No animals were hurt in this brain prank.

    Blueberries are way overpriced, they grow
    in the freaking woods! But they are the
    wild ones which turns teeth blue:p

    We have five blueberry bushes in our backyard. They didn't produce as well as usual this year. We normally end up with three to four gallon bags full of them in the freezer besides what we eat during the season. Ours grow really big, too.

    Some grow even bigger.

    That reminds me when I called into work sick one time, for real. I was very sick and completely out of it. A lady answered the phone and I told her I wasn't able to make it in today because I was really sick. She asked who I was and I told her my name. She said, you don't even work here anymore. I said, what do you mean I worked there yesterday, am I fired or something? She said, you haven't worked here for like 5 years now. I repeated, but I was just there yesterday. She said, honey, I'm telling you you haven't worked here for about 5 years.

    I had to pause and I'm saying what the hell is going on I know I was just there yesterday. I'm going on, where am I what year is it what the hell is going on. I asked her name and once I realized who I was talking to (a lady I use to work with) and I called the wrong place she started laughing hard. I heard her yell out, hey everyone (my name here) is calling in sick and wont be able to make it in today! I could here her and several other people laughing in the background.

    I thought I was in the damn twilight zone for a second and was loosing my damn mind. It took me a few to remember where I really worked to call the right place. Talk about a complete mind f*ck first thing in the morning.

    :applause: Yeah, that sounds like me alright. I'm also that guy who called in sick and later my wife posted pics of our day at the lake on Facebook. That was after I'd told her a million times to NEVER post stuff about me on the web.
