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 horsepower. He shook his head and said, ‘Lady, you
need a horsepower.’ I responded that was larger than . 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, and
hehanded me back the quarter, and said I owed $4.25
and he was sorry but they could not do that kind
of thing.’ The clerk then proceeded to give me
back $1.75 in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McD’s.



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.’

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 iceberg lettuce.

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’s why we ask’

Happened in Birmingham , Ala.


IDIOT SIGHTING:
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?!’

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'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!’
His reply,
‘I know. I already got that side.’

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton,
Mississippi
