Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster here.
I work in a bakery. The only products we have are sweets and bread.
With that said, the usual group of customers are come in are either really old, overweight, or both. Most of the hams I see are usually nice, or neutral [you don't mess with your drug dealer, do you?]. However, the same old joke I hear day in and day out is
"OH EMM GEEE HOW DO YOU STAY SO SKINNY WORKING HERE TEEHEE"
Every. Single. Time.
I tried to explain that I don't eat the sweets we sell, and that I exercise, but they don't want to hear it! As if I'm going to spout some mystical secret about eating ~** allll the things you waaannnttt **~
At first I just laughed it off, but now I'm sick of it! Do any of you have a witty comeback I can use for "HOW DO U STAY SO SKEENY HORHORHOR"?
My latest thing has been keeping a deadpan expression and saying
"I have diabetes."
They shut up immediately, it's great.
Just a heads up, I work side by side with my boss, so I can't be too rude, as much as I would love to. I hate dealing with hams, but I don't want to lose my job.
I look forward to posting some more on here, and hearing from you all!
