This is really something I asked someone and got a dumb answer.

I work at a place where we allow people to come in and do community service, well I had this girl come in and I kept looking her in the face thinking I know this girl from somewhere. So finally I ask her what school did you go to because you look very familiar to me. And she replies I used to smoke crack! and I'm thinking do I look like I smoke crack? why would I know you from that? so I never talked to her again and she never came back!

I've taken on the habit of replying:

"No thanks, I gave it up"

At that point, they usually figure out how stupid of a question it was, and open me one.

I have 2 actually. both true sad to say...
1. While standing in front of the light bulb aisle at Lowes "Can you tell me where the light bulbs are at sir"?

2.While selling a Dewalt 14.4 cordless drill to a guy " So where do you plug it in"?

I don't work there anymore. It was a summer gig many years ago and I am sure I was about to get fired anyhow for calling a customer a moron.

"Could you possibly be any ruder/meaner/more sarcastic to me?" Surprisingly enough, it turns out that I can!

i have one comment which was the stupidest ever, and one question. first the question because i cant remember the comment yet.

i work in shoes. i was working in the exact middle of the shoes department (okay, maybe a few feet to the left), a customer walks up to me and asks me, "Do you have shoes here?" i couldnt recover quickly enough, so an "Are you serious?" actually escaped my lips before i could stop it. luckily she wasnt offended. maybe she realised how stupid the question was when i looked at the fixture i was working on in seemingly utter confusion.

the stupidest comment ever was, upon hearing that i live in oklahoma, "Wow. i could never live in oklahoma. i dont even know where to begin making a teepee." yes, because i have DSL running to my teepee.

I pointed at the Rejected inspection sticker on the 83 Eagle, and he asked
"What does that mean?"
