Results of The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America

  I handed the teller @ my bank a withdrawal slip for $400.00
I said “May I have large bills, please”
 She looked at me and said “I’m sorry sir, all the bills are the same  size.” 
When I got up off the floor I explained it to her….
 When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our ar, 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  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!’  His reply: ‘I know. I already got that  side.’
This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, MS
We 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. thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at hat time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, ‘Lady, you need a  1/4 horsepower.’  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.
My  daughter and I went through the McDonald’s take-out window and I
gave the clerk  a $5 bill.  Ou total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.
She said, ‘you gave me too much money.’
I said, ‘Yes I know, but this way   you can just give me a dollar bill back.
She sighed and went  to get the manager, who asked me to repeat my          request.
I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said ‘We’re sorry but we
 could not do that kind of thing.’
The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change.
Do  not confuse the clerks at McD’s.
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
                     
        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 iceburg lettuce.
                             — From  Kansas City
 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.
 The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it’s safe to cross the street.
  I was  crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker 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
   I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself
nd for the sake of her life, couldn’t understand why her system would not  turn on.
She’s a deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Dept, no less!
  How would you pronounce this child’s name?
                                   “Le-a”
                          Leah??                NO
                         Lee – A??            NOPE
                          Lay – a??             NO
                        Lei??          Guess Again.
             This child attends a school in  Kansas City,  Mo.
      Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
                         It’s pronounced “Ledasha”.
  When the Mother was asked about the pronunciation of the name, she said,
                        “the dash don’t be silent.”

                           to pronounce the dash.

    I once went through a McDonalds Drive-Thru and paid my $1.78 amount in change: 5 quarters, 2 dimes, 6 nickels and 3 pennies. When I put the money in the hand of the girl at the window, she just gave me a blank stare. She made no effort to count it; I doubt she even knew how. She just asked if it was “exact” and put it in the till!

     
    • LTG,
      The last time I looked at a Mcdonald’s fastfood cash register, which was at least 15 years ago, the machine tells the worker behind the counter how much in change to give the customer. Say, I pay for a $1.99 hamburger with a $5 bill. The worker doesn’t even have to do the math because the machine has a readout giving the amount: $3.01.

       
  4. Unbelievable!!! I could write a book on the some of the names women have given their children delivered by my husband. Dash come as no surprise. My favorite story was the woman who named her child “Congoleum”???? As in flooring, I think.
