My Husband’s A Pinhead

| Chicago, IL, USA | Marriage & Partners

(I am a cashier of a water park. We’re not allowed to use the intercom system unless it’s an emergency. The phone rings.)

Me: “Hello, [water park]. How can I help you?

Man: “I need you to page my wife.”

Me: “I’m sorry, we’re not allowed to page people unless it’s an emergency.”

Man: “But I need to talk to her! This is an emergency! A very big emergency!”

(At this point, I don’t really know what to do because this has never happened before. I explain the situation to my manager, and he talks to the man who I can hear from the head set is really upset at this point. My manager gets the wife’s name and pages her to the office. She comes in dripping wet and takes the phone.)

Wife: *panicked* “Honey, there’s an emergency? What’s going on?… You had me paged for this?… It hasn’t moved… Did you check the top shelf of the closet?”

(She hangs up and turns to me and my manager.)

Wife: “I’m so sorry. My husband couldn’t find his bowling ball for league tonight.”
