We spend approximately %150 of our lives at work (feel free to double-check my math, but that's how it feels). So statistically it makes sense that some of the weirdest things to happen in life will take place during work hours. On the bright side: if you're going to have awkward, uncomfortable and surreal experiences, you may as well get paid for them!
1.) From Greystreet21:
While working at a supermarket, I was walking through the dairy department and saw a fellow employee over by the eggs. As I got closer I could see him with a carton open and he seemed to be turning each egg. After doing the whole pack, I asked him what he was doing and he responded, “the manager asked me to rotate the eggs.” I facepalmed and explained what they actually meant, to which he replied, “that makes a lot more sense.”
For context, in the grocery world, to rotate means to make sure the earliest dates of expiration are towards the front of the shelf.
