In our dining hall, the staff scoop your ice cream for you; this is apparently also unusual, but it's not the point of this post.
The point is: a group of us were at brunch yesterday, and my friend went to get a bowl of ice cream. She came back in a few minutes and reported that "wow, the new lunch lady is really bitchy."
Apparently, when the new lady handed my friend her ice cream, another dining worker told the new lady "You gave her too much."
To which the new woman replied: "Yeah, I know. I'm trying to make their stomachs hurt so they won't keep coming back here."
. . . what the hell?
(I don't know what the rules are on hearsay in this comm, so I'll freely delete this if it doesn't count; it just confused the crap out of all of us.)
