Not Always Right

I found this story on the site Not Always Right--and it made me laugh.  Hope you enjoy.

(I have albinism, so I have very pale skin, white hair, and red irises.)
Me: “Hi. What can I get for you?”
Customer: “Are…are you a vampire?”
Me: “Well, my dad is half-vampire.” *laughing*
Customer: “Please, don’t bite me.”
Me: “Ma’am, I’m not going to bite you.”
Customer: “Don’t put any blood in my food either. I don’t want to be a vampire.”
Me: “Ma’am, I’m not going to put blood in your food. I’m not a vampire. We serve regular food here.”
Customer: “Let me speak to your manager.”
(I go and get my manager, and fill him in on what’s going on.)
Customer, to my manager: “Is your vampire waitress going to bite me?”
Manager: “Only if you don’t tip her well.”
(The woman looks completely horrified, but finally ends up ordering and leaving me a 21% tip.)

How can people be so damn stupid?

sounds like someone's been reading too many vampire books and watching too many Twilight movies. It's amazing how some people lose touch with reality!

Frightening!

I wonder if some deluded person like that would try to stake an albino, thinking it was a vampire? I can see it as a "Law & Order" episode (if L&O was still on the air-maybe a Special Victims Unit episode? vampires would probably qualify as special victims.) You can imagine the defense-"Your honor, my client was under the influence of the "Twilight" books and countless movies about vampires".

After the 'Twinkie defense' and some of the other BS defensive plays lawyers come up with, I would not be surprised. Could be amusing, though--I mean, other than the fact that someone died--and, of course, it would be televised gavel to gavel. Now I'll be scouring the news feeds waiting for this story to break.

I hope that place had security video-otherwise no one will believe it!

Thank goodness she actually went and reported to her manager, otherwise no one WOULD believe her. :) Sometimes people scare me a whole lot.

I still figure, if I live long enough, I will have heard/seen EVERYTHING. ;)

oh, I wouldn't want to get to the point where I've heard/seen everything-life wouldn't be fun anymore!

So true, so true...
