Here is a good one. So on Tuesday I had forgotten my lunch at home so I called up a resturant to order a burger, wrapped in lettuce with a side salad. I had done this before and the lady on the other end has no problem and doesn't bat an eye. On Tuesday someone new answered the phone and here is the conversation.
Me: Hello I'd like to order a monster burger with no bun wrapped in lettuce please
Her: Umm what do you mean by no bun?
Me: Oh they do it for me all the time, hold the bun and wrap the burger in lettuce
Her: (completely serious) I hope the cooks can remember how to do that.

In my little corner of the cubicle-farm at work, Friday has become "everybody bring in food to share" day. Today there's donuts, bagels, three kinds of quickbread and two kinds of cookies. Now, I will admit that I've been using this as an excuse to clean out the flour and sugar and whatnot from my cupboard (I loved to bake, still do). However, today I overheard this exchange:
Co-worker 1: Getting another bagel, huh, Co-worker 2? *sees apparent lack of cream cheese on said bagel* Don't you like cream cheese?
Co-worker 2: No, not really. Too fattening.
I swear, if it weren't for this stupid dairy intolerance, I'd go and get a big ol' glob of cream cheese and eat it by itself.

Here Friday is ice-cream day. Everybody meets in the conference cube and has bowls of ice cream. Every Friday. Fortunately, it's people in another organization, so I don't feel awkward for declining to join (although I was invited).

For so many years I believed like your co-worker. Grr, all the lies we're fed!

DUDE. Seriously? Ok, someone (Co-Worker 2, in fact) ordered the humongo-thing of wings from a local chain that's really good (Wings Over [my city], if anyone's familiar). I got all excited when it suddenly arrived, because wings! Tasty wings! Not 100% primal, of course, but a reasonable 20% indulgence on a Friday.
And then they turned out to be those breaded boneless blob-things.
Edit: And I realize this is not really a CW moment, but it's a follow-up to my previous post, so eh, here it is.

I finally joined the forum so that I could comment on this feed, since I already read it everyday for some good (twisted?) laughs.
So my CW moment came the other day at Whole Foods, where I often stop to get food from the salad bar or hot bar when I'm working late. I like that they list the ingredients on everything, and there's enough variety to find something to meet my dairy-free, gluten-free needs. I was a bit horrified the other day to see whole hard-boiled eggs in the salad bar, next to a container with just the whites of hard boiled eggs. Really? And what happened to all those beautiful yolks? I'm tempted to go ask one of the employees if they are throwing them out, and if they'd save me a few if they are... ;-)

To be fair, some people are allergic to just the yolks (like me).
