IDIOT SIGHTINGS 1-10

I just love these......they make me feel like a Mensa candidate.

IDIOT SIGHTING 1

I handed the teller @ my bank a withdrawal slip for $400.00

I said "May I have large bills, please?"

She looked at me and said "I'm sorry sir, all the bills are the same size."

When I got up off the floor, I explained it to her.

IDIOT SIGHTING 2

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in 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, 'it's open!' His reply: 'I know. I already got that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, MS

IDIOT SIGHTING 3

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 said that we had the largest one Sears made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.

He shook his head and said, 'Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4.

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

We haven't used Sears repair since.

IDIOT SIGHTING 4

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out 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 we 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 Mickey D's.

IDIOT SIGHTING 5

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.'

From Kingman, KS

IDIOT SIGHTING 6

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 iceburg lettuce.

IDIOT SIGHTING 7

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."

:blink:

IDIOT SIGHTING 8

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?!'

and she was a probation officer in Wichita, KS

IDIOT SIGHTING 9

At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to 'downsizing,' our manager commented cheerfully, 'This is fun. We should do this more often.'

:blink:

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.

IDIOT SIGHTING 10

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.

and she is a deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff's office.

Yes, Irish, we all read your email. Its so interesting to know that your friend Mary's granddaughter got her first tooth or your neighborhood trash pick-up is moved to Wednesday this week because of the holiday. :D

(Would be really funny if your trash pick-up is moved or you do have a friend named Mary :ph34r: )

Aha! I KNEW IT!! :ph34r:

okay, this is the truth.

Actually, I DO have a friend named Mary (since the first grade)

and our trash pickup, which is normally on Tuesday mornings WILL probably be on Wednesday this week.

:ph34r:

If Mary has a granddaughter, however, that is news to me and now, I am supremely miffed because she did not tell me about it. Well, screw her, then-- I am Never speaking to her again. There goes that 48- year friendship.........

Okay, I get you. Well, we could house trade for 1/2 the year. But you have to come here in the summer cause it's TOO hot for me.

I can't get hubs to go for those hot summers (yet) or I'd live there tomorrow.

There is no such thing as too hot for me. Too cold is not "my thang".

For a true New Englander, that does not make sense, I know.

And shroomie, what's up with that anyway? All the browns & tans for homes there in the desert. We watch house hunters & that's all you see. You would think people would want some blues & greens --- cool colors. Is it a law there that you have to match the desert or what?

Where I live it is, but then we are a PUD :D I think the idea is to blend in with the landscape, not be an eyesore :unsure: But I guess everything would blend in with snow, which is what it is doing this morning afternoon. Well, not a lot here but it sure is up on the passes. Glad we came back from SF yesterday :)
