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
McNuggets.


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 happened.....


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 the
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 AT WORK... Sign in a gas station: Coke -- 49
cents.
Two for a dollar.


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.
It's too bad ignorance isn't painful.

Man those are some funny stories. Its true. Ignorant people are everywhere. You should see the type of people I deal with in my business. I have a computer repair shop that I run out of my house and believe me.... people are forkin stupid.

One woman came in once and she wanted me to look at her computer because her mouse wasnt working. I look at the computer and she connected the mouse into the computer's LAN Port!!! I almost fell to the floor laughing.

Another time this dumbass brought me his computer because the "cup holder" in it was broken. I said "the what!!!". The dumb bastard was using the CD Rom Tray as a cup holder and he broke it!!!!

You see what type of # I have to deal with!! And those are only 2 of dozens of stories. I swear some people should not be allowed to touch any electronic equipment.

Funny...bet you've never been asked to send the "key" for their computer....
Lady called me said
"I need a key for my computer so I can upgrade my memory."
Me; "A key ma'am? , can you explain what kind of key you are referring to"
Her; "You know, the key that fits that round thingy on the front of the computer, so I can open the case"
After placing her on mute so she could not hear me laughing, I explained that the "round thingy" was to "lock the computer key board" and that she would have to remove the screws in back of the computer to have her memory upgraded..

I worked for Greenstar (JohnDeere, they have GPS units in their combines and tractors) anyway guy calls me and wanted to know if I could watch him with the satelite and make sure his rows were overlapping correctly (He was under the assumption that we watched every tractor and combine that John Deere had)
