Encounters with Stupid

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 a 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 McNuggets.

(Unbelievable but sadly true. Must have been the same one I asked for sweetener and she said they didn’t have any, only Splenda and sugar.)

I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart 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 purchases so they wouldn’t get mixed.

After the checker had scanned all of my items, she picked up the divider, looking 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?”

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 items and left.

She had no clue as to what had just happened.

( But the lady behind me had a big smirk on her face as I left.)

A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly.

When I 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 “thingy.”

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 opener. Now I can’t get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?”

“Hmmm, I don’t know. 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 the batteries. It’s a long walk….”

Several years ago, our office 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 paper from the photocopier,” 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.

Brunette, by the way!!

A mother calls 911, very worried, asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room because the kid had eaten ants.

The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine.

The mother says, “I just gave him some ant killer……”

Dispatcher: “Rush him in to emergency right now!”
