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's not. Four is larger than two.'

We haven't used Sears repair since.


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, an 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


Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.


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.'

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.

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.'

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.


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 , KS


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.


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's

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 ,



They walk among us...........
