Default IDIOT SIGHTING...funny

email from my sister:

Be Careful Out There:


IDIOT SIGHTING:


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'* not.' Four is larger than two..'

We haven't used Sears repair since.

IDIOT SIGHTING:

My daughter and I went through the McDonald '* 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 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 McD'*.

IDIOT SIGHTING :
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 IN FOOD SERVICE :
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
From Kansas City

IDIOT SIGHTING :
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'* why we ask.'

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.


IDIOT SIGHTING :
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it'* 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 , KS

IDIOT SIGHTING :
At a good-bye 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


IDIOT SIGHTING :
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, no less.


IDIOT SIGHTING

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, 'its open!' His reply, 'I know. I already got that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, MS


STAY ALERT!

They walk among us... and the scary part is that they VOTE and theyREPRODUCE

OMG, the last one was the best. Reminds me of a little story I shell share.

Was at my brothers house for this last Christmas. My dad was there with his wife. We were all talking about locking keys in the car. I then said a few months back I lock my keys outside the car. I was trapped inside and couldn't reach the key laying on the ground. Good thing I had my cell phone and was able to call for help.

Everyone there got the joke right away. But not Sandy, she looked confused, then asked, how can you lock your self in your car. That'* stupid, just open the door and get your keys. We all had a great laugh at her expense. She got mad at me. Made my day.

I was reading them off to wife who'* reading her email in the other room. She asked me to forward them. I had a real MD'* episode myself. I asked for a Coke and a half dozen chicken fingers. Didnt want the fries for the deal meal. The girl responds, We only sell them in 3,6, and 9 pieces. I shook my head and said,.... OK just give me 6. These are the people who will be taking care of me. I Pray I dont cripple up or get Alzheinmers.

The really sad thing is...that I'm sure we can all relate to one or more of these. I have some co-workers that I often wonder how their brain can keep reminding their heart and lungs to function, when it doesn't work for anything else they need it for!
