IDIOTS AT WORK --- AND PLAY
Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu
that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken
McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. "We
don't have half dozen nuggets", said the teenager at
the counter. "You don't?" I replied. "We only have
six, nine, or twelve," was the reply. "So I can't
order a half-dozen nuggets, but I can order six?"
"That's right." So I shook my head and ordered six
I was checking out at the local Foodland with just a
few items and the lady behind me put her things on the
belt close to mine. I picked up one of those
"Dividers" that they keep by the cash register
and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get
mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she
picked up the "Divider" looking it all over for the
bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar
code she said to me "Do you know how much this is?"
and I said to her "I've changed my mind, I don't think
I'll buy that today". She said "OK" and I paid her for
the things and left. She had no clue to what had just
A lady at work was seen putting a credit card into her
floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When
inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was
shopping on the Internet and they kept asking
for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM
I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside
her car. Do you need some help?" I asked. She replied,
"I knew I should have replaced
the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't
get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a
distant convenient store) would have a battery to fit
this?" "Hmmm, I dunno. Do you have an alarm
too?" I asked. "No, just this remote thingy," she
answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took
the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied,
"Why don't you drive over there and check about
batteries, it's a long walk.
Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too
swift. One day she was typing and turned to a
secretary and said, "I'm almost out of typing paper.
What do I do?" "Just use copier machine paper," the
secretary told her. With that, the intern took her
last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the
photocopier and proceeded to make five "blank" copies.
I was in a car dealership a while ago, when a large
motor home was towed into the garage. The front of the
vehicle was in dire need of repair and the whole thing
generally looked like an extra in "Twister". I asked
the manager what had happened. He told me that the
driver had set the "cruise control" and then went in
the back to make a sandwich.

IDIOTS & COMPUTERS.... My neighbor works in the
operations department in the central office of a large
bank. Employees in the field call him when they have
problems with their computers. One night he got a
call from a woman in one of the branch banks who had
this question: "I've got smoke coming from the back of
my terminal. Do you guys have a fire downtown?"
IDIOTS ARE EASY TO PLEASE.... I was sitting in my
science class,when the teacher commented that the
next day would be the shortest day of the year. My lab
partner became visibly excited, cheering and clapping.
I explained to her that the amount of daylight
changes, not the actual amount of time. Needless to
say, she was very disappointed.
Police in Radnor, Pennsylvania, interrogated a suspect
by placing a metal colander on his head and connecting
it with wires to a photocopy machine. The message
"He's lying" was placed in the copier, and police
pressed the copy button each time they thought the
suspect wasn't telling the truth. Believing the "lie
detector" was working, the suspect confessed
