Default IDIOT SIGHTING:

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.


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


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. 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'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?"!

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.

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 !
STAY ALERT!

They walk among us... and they REPRODUCE!!!

I'm mad that they consider the guy behind the counter at Taco Bell a "chef"

HAHA, thanks Paladin for the laugh.

Have any of you seen the movie "Idiocracy"? It is a move by the same guy who did Office Space, Mike Judge. and Bevis and Butthead and King Of The Hill.

If you haven't. Watch it. It is a comedy, but what is scary, is I can see that kind of future.
Here is the imdb site for it

How about the folks of Concord NC at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. They are building a 1/4 mile track there at the Motor complex. The folks that live around it complained that it would increase the noise. They built this track in the 60s with no houses around it. Now it houses several dirt and paved tracks as well as Charlotte Motor Speedway. The owner Mr. Smith has said that if he does'nt get the 1/4 track, he will shut down shop and move to a new location. Lots of money saying bye bye. If you move to an area around a track, don't you think it might get loud once a week

Those are great, thanks for sharing paladin. My favorite has to be the garage door engine one. The solution to that is to pull out a calculator and perform the operation. Sears customer service leaves much to be desired based on my experience.

I have (sadly) had a moment like this.

My family loves to go snowmobiling. I was putting a boot on with things in my hand and my watch alarm went off. I said to my sister, "Can you hit the button to that off.", she asked "What button is it." I put down my things point to the button and pick my things back up.

Luckly she had a moment like that a week later.
