Idiot Sightings!

on . Posted in Humor and Inspiration

 

We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a large enough motor on the opener. I thought for a minute and then said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a ½ horsepower.

He shook his head and said, “Lady, you need a ¼ horsepower.”

I responded that ½ was larger than ¼.

He said, “NO, it's not. Four is larger than two.”

We haven't used Sears repairmen since.
 
 
My daughter and I went through the McDonald's takeout window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.

She said, “You gave me too much money.”

I said, “Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar bill back.”

She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so and he handed me back the quarter and said, “We're sorry but they could not do that kind of thing.” The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McDonalds.
 

I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: “Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.”

Kingman, Kansas
 
 
My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for “minimal lettuce.”

He said he was sorry but they only had iceberg lettuce.

Kansas City, Missouri
 
 
I was at the airport checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, “Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?”

To which I replied, “If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?”

He smiled knowingly and nodded, “That's why we ask.”

Birmingham, Alabama
 
 
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.

Appalled, she responded, “What on earth are blind people doing driving?”

She was a probation officer in Wichita, Kansas.
 

I was at a goodbye luncheon for an old and dear coworker. She was leaving the company due to downsizing. Our manager commented cheerfully, “This is fun. We should do this more often.”

Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.

This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.
 
 
I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.

A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office.
 
 
When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked inside it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.

“Hey,” I announced to the technician, “its open!”

His reply, “I know. I already got that side.”

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, Mississippi.
 
 

STAY ALERT! They walk among us... and the scary part is that they VOTE and they REPRODUCE!
