Serious question: Have people really become too dumb to count to 15 now?

"Fifteen is this many" ? Really? REALLY?

Is that what we've come to?

From the checkout isle in a Wal Mart

Yeah, I count 15 fingers?

what's the problem?

edit to say, after watching a video of a Jamaican woman in a store thinking that a white security guard was a demon, I am sure this is necessary for some people.

I'm going to have to show this to my wife. She works at Wal-Mart.

She keeps telling me that the management at her store keeps doing the dumbest things, and I guess this is one good example.

I have to wonder though if this is some kind of cruel joke that coperate is playing on their customers?




Wait a minute, that ceiling doesn't look like a Wal-Mart ceiling and I see a banner or something in the background that says "Best Buy" are you sure this is Wal-Mart.

I can't count past ten, I've only got two hands.


Well...I can count actually to 21, but I have to be naked. Really just 20 and a half.

Am I going to get a warning for that one?


I would have guessed non-English reading customers, if the number 15 was spelled out, i.e. fifteen, but since it is just a number...then yes, people have become that dumb. Final answer.

Most likely has something to do with people who can't speak/read English..
Still funny as hell though.

I can already picture some poor fella standing in front of this board looking at his hands trying to better comprehend what 15 means.

I think they do that because people don't reallly obey the signs. Hell, the grocery store lines that say 10 items or less, I don't exactly follow that

You should see the sign they have in the washrooms...

Those devices at the front doors that they tell you are for security to catch shoplifters are in fact devices that zap the common sense from people's minds as they walk IN the store. Don't be fooled, I mean why else would I walk into a walmart to get 2 items that cost a total of $3 and end up walking out with a buggy full and $150 lighter in the wallet?


peace
