Subject: Idiots!!

How many times have we dealt with people like this?????

IDIOTS IN SERVICE This week, all our office 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 he didn't want them to cross there anymore.

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?" He 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 an intellectually-challenged coworker 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 coworker 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 as unlocked. "Hey," I announced
to the technician, "it's open!" To which he replied, "I know - I already got
that side ---

We must know the same people, I'd hate to think there
are more of them out there just waiting to talk to us.

Believe me Donna, they are everywhere...But then remember I bought the two tickets for the lotto and put the same number combos on $400 instead of $200.. I guess I would have had to share the grand prize with myself, if I had won that lol..amazing what we all do at times..Best part is being able to bring out the humor of it..

Thanks Sharon..Wish I was lucky at the machines..One time I was playing to kill time, just a nickel a play and hit the jackpot..I got a whole $25.00 instead of the $800 possible... I quit gambling unless I go to lunch with my daughter and we put a couple in while waiting for our meal.
