While working at McDonalds:
Woman: "I want a beefburger."
Me: "Oh, a hamburger."
Woman: "No. A beefburger. Ham is pig, I don't eat pig."

This lead to a short discussion about the history of meat products from German towns that ended with the conclusion:

"Ok, I'll get a you a beefburger, sorry about the packaging, we've run out of beefburger wrappers."

» The most cash I've ever carried

£20000 a week
There's two [an insurance company] offices in [a town]. One has a cashpoint and the other contains (among other things) the cashier team.

Large armour plated securicor van with riot-geared bloke drops off huge chunks of cash in a thief-proof case for the machine at the cashier office. The cash is then (very securely) transported via a young lady in a cheap shoulder-bag (the cash, not the young lady) to the other office 200m away and installed in the machine.
