I was in my local Washington Mutual first in line (1 teller) behind the current customer. It was a black lady with bright pink nails and they were extremely long, they were curling because they were so long.

Anyways, her phone rings while in line and she answers it and proceeds to have this conversation. It turns out to be a producer for the Jerry Springer show and she tells him that she hasn't been on the show since 2001 and that she would come back on, but this will be the last time. I take a closer look and she is actually a dude. They began discussing money as she wrapped up her transaction and walked out.


most the people on the show arent the real people.. its actors


OK, so she/he was either an actor or a real person who was going on the show. It still makes it one of the strangest 10 minutes of my life.

Great stuff guys.

I had a funny one at Kmart leading up to Christmas. A lady was challenging the fact that her two Mary Kate & Ashley fragrances didn't ring up right. She said "They're supposed to be buy one get one free." After much deliberation with a person on the floor running over then the clerk running to the frangrances to check the sign etc she came back and said...

"I'm sorry, only the Mary Kate & Ashley beauty products are buy one get one free. The frangrances are just 50% off. Do you want them anyway?"

The customer, after MORE deliberation said "Yeah, I guess I'll get them anyway."

Since I wasn't in their line I wasn't compelled to scream at them, although I seem to recall my line not moving during this entire thing and I was far too entertained to care.

idiots...they probably still think they were ripped off

reminds me of an radio interview i heard with Ken Camaniti where they asked him about steriod use in baseball and asked him if he thought the number of players who used was around 50%. Ken said something to the effect of "no, it's not as high as 50%, i wouldnt even say it's half the players..." :-/

Oops... I was commenting on two things in one post.

1) Springer is not fake! ;-)

2) Inquiring about the hotness of the girl from Zig's story. Didn't actually read the story about Springer. Guess I should have before I quoted it, eh? :-D

Nope, cross-dressing dudes are not on my menu, thanks. :-b
