Be careful…be v-e-r-y careful.


IDIOT SIGHTING: My husband and I 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 1/4horsepower.”  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 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

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.   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 co-worker 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 co-worker:
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 bunch at Texas Instruments.

IDIOT SIGHTING: I work with an individual who plugged her power strip
back into itself, and for the sake of her own life, couldn’t understand why her
system would not turn on.  A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff’s office, no less.

IDIOT SIGHTING: When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealer-
ship 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, Mississippi!
