The past two weeks have been really interesting for some...different things....
I had one lady in looking at a cooking thermometer. Its metal, clearly, but she still asks me if she can use it in the microwave. After I explain no, not while its running, she then asks me if she can use it in the toaster. I, trying to joke, said as long as she doesn't touch the sides of the toaster with the metal stick. She looked pretty confused. I try to think she just has never had kitchen appliances before.
We just got a decent dump of snow, and a car was stuck in the parking lot. Three people were pushing on the back of the car, trying to get it to go forward. Meanwhile, my roommates and I watched, waiting to call 911 when one gets squished. The driver had the car in reverse and had it floored.
But the winner in my mind the past couple weeks: during the day of said snow, a guy got his car nicely stuck trying to drive into our parking lot. Its cold, windy and wet, but he jumps out of the car in a t-shirt and starts digging with his bare hands. 30 seconds later jumps in his car frantically rubbing his hands to warm up. Jumps back out and starts digging. Repeats this process several times.
Finally gets his car moving, pulls into his parking space (one of the closest ones to the door) gets out, reaches into his back seat and pulls out a jacket. Puts on jacket and mittens and walks the 10 feet inside.
