    1. "I worked at a university and asked some of the students if they like the Spice Girls. They replied, 'Is that a cooking show?'"


    2. "I was working at a high school blood drive, and the math team came in, so I threw out the quote, 'The limit does not exist!' They all stared at me."

    3. "When I agreed with the adults at a bar mitzvah that the music was too loud and that it was too dark."


    4. "I had to teach a 12-year-old how to use a landline phone, and when she was done, she handed me the phone, saying she didn't see the hang-up button."

    5. "When I threw out my back brushing butter onto puff pastry."


    6. "I'd started working at a college and was pumped to see some cute football players on campus. Then they arrived and looked like children, and I realized I could technically be their mother."

    7. "The kids at the camp I worked at asked me what a cassette was, then were disappointed it couldn't play music by itself."
