I'll say it again,.......stupidity is my job security.
Apr 2, '03Had the following Emailed to me and thought I would add them to this thread
IDIOTS IN SERVICE: This week, our 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 she didn't want them to cross there anymore. I could swear I've recently been with some of these people...
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?" She 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 a 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 beenlocked 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!" To which he
replied, "I know - I already got that side."
Now don't you feel better?
Apr 6, '036. Swedish business consultant Ulf af Trolle labored 13 years on a book about Swedish economic solutions. He took the 250-page manuscript to be copied, only to have it reduced to 50,000 strips of paper in seconds when a worker confused the copier with the shredder.
Well, I would hope that they had another copy...if not THAT would be dumb...
Apr 7, '03My uncle lives in Radnor, Pa and the story about the photo copier was TRUE. The polices were upset d/t they didn't want their lie detector be know to the public so they could use it again.
Apr 7, '03Oh that phone company one was right on target. When we moved to a rural area we were told we would have a phone in two weeks. Four months later we still were waiting and the phone company kept asking for my phone number. Wanted the out of state number of my parents so that they could call me and tell me when the phone was available.
