Default Idiot Sightings

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 drivers 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!

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: 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.

IDIOTS 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. He was a
Chef? Yep... >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 its 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.

Not that true. Maybe 50% but no where near 70%. I dated a northerner and when he asked me what I needed from the store I told him to pick me up a menstrual cycle. He came back and said he looked all over the feminine products section and almost asked someone. I about died laughing. He had no freakin' clue.

Lol thats ok, my Aunt told my Uncle to go to the store to buy Cow Tails ice-cream. So he goes and looks all over the place, and even asked someone that worked there. He gets home with no ice-cream, and she'* like WTF....so he says they didn't have any cow tail ice-cream. She says to him OH CRAP! Did I say to get that? I meant Moose Tracks

your going to call us slow....your the one who still lives where it snows, has to change out winter/summer rims and tires, and has to worry about salt damage. You cant swim or enjoy the beach 10 months of the year, wear shorts and flip flops year round, and never have to shovel snow.

That doesnt mean there are roads. North Florida and South Georiga isnt like Orlando or Atlanta. We also have extremely dry weather. We got rain for the first time in probably 1.5-2 months yesterday. The wind has been blowing rapidly too. I hate the fires. A lot of our swamps are dry, and that is what is burning.
