The world is full of them

Postby DieHardCubbie » Tue Nov 25, 2003 3:34 am

IDIOTS IN SERVICE: This week, our phones went dead and I had to
contact the telephone repair people. They promised to be out
between 8:00 a.m.and 7:00 p.m. When I asked if they could give me a
smaller time window, the pleasant gentleman asked, "Would you like
us to call you before we come?"
I replied that I didn't see how he would be able to do that since
our phones weren't working. He also requested that we report
future outages by email. (Does YOUR email work without a
telephone line?).


IDIOTS AT WORK: I was signing the receipt for my credit card
purchase when the clerk noticed I had never signed my name on the
back of the credit card. She informed me that she could not
complete the transaction unless the card was signed. When I asked
why, she explained that it was necessary to compare the signature
I had just signed on the receipt. So I signed the credit card in
front of her. She carefully compared the signature to the one I
had just signed on the receipt. As luck would have it, they matched.


IDIOTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: 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 were being hit by cars and she
didn't want them to cross there anymore. I could swear I've
recently been with some of these people...


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 iceberg.


IDIOT SIGHTING #1: 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?"
She smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."


IDIOT SIGHTING #2: The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's
safe to cross the street. I was crossing with a co-worker of mine
when 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?"


IDIOT SIGHTING #3: At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear
co-worker who is leaving the company due to "downsizing," our
manager commented cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this
more often."
Not a word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that
deer-in-the-headlights stare.


IDIOT SIGHTING #4: I work with an individual who plugged her power
strip back into itself and for the life of her couldn't understand
why her system would not turn on.


IDIOT SIGHTING #5: 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, "it's open!"
To which he replied, "I know - I already got that side."

I'm adding a #6
People have asked me what the lights on the vacum cleaner are for. I
had one person suggest to me that it's so you can see where you're
vacuming when the power goes out...

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I have another one:

IDIOTS IN ADVERTISING

For a recent commercial for a telephone system (Some no-name company) somebody had the bright idea to have the man doing the voiceover to say, "If your phone has been disconnected, call the number on the bottom of your screen right now."

8-o

This is a TRUE story, I saw the commercial.
