7. When my friend rang his phone to help him find his glasses.
“My friend once couldn’t find his iPhone in his house, so he rang it from the landline.
His iPhone rang, on the table in front of him, he picked it up and obviously, there was nobody on the other line.
Screams upstairs to his parents, with a phone in each hand: ‘Who the fuck is ringing me?’
I sat there facepalming.’”
8. When an American woman argued with me that blueberry was a flavor, not ‘a real thing.’
“I met an American woman traveling that got aggressive trying to convince me that blueberry was a flavor and not ‘a real thing’ while obsessively picking out all the little blue/purple ‘round things’ from her blueberry ice cream.”
9. When my sister’s friend asked if men have anuses.
“My sister had some friends over, one of her female friends dropped: ‘Do men have an anus?’”
10. When a mother told me she doesn’t believe in outer space.
“I was at a small social at my parents house and mentioned something about the National Space Center in Leicester. A girl pipes up and says,
‘Oh I love taking my son there, he loves it, I just find it amusing because I don’t believe in space.’
I looked at her dumbfounded and asked if she meant she didn’t believe in investing money in space exploration. No, she did not believe in space. She simply did not believe that anything existed above the sky, that pictures and videos were all fake and that all space agencies and anyone who claimed to have been to space was lying.
The other girls in the group started nodding in agreement saying things like, ‘Now that you mention it, I’ve never really seen space.’
I just went home.”
