Default IDIOT SIGHTINGS!

IDIOT SIGHTING: Hubby and I 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. I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears made at that 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.

IDIOT SIGHTING: 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.'

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: 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, Alabama

IDIOT SIGHTING: The stoplight on the corner buzzes when its safe to cross the street. I was crossing with a co-worker 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?!'

IDIOT SIGHTING: At a good-bye luncheon for a dear coworker: She was leaving the company due to 'downsizing.' Our manager commented cheerfully, 'This is fun. We should do this more often.' Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.

This was at Texas Instruments.

IDIOT SIGHTING: When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, 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’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, 'Its open!'
His reply, 'I know - I already got that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, Mississippi

the door locked reminds me when i was 12, my dad owned a gas
station in the country with 6 pumps, a huge delivery truck came
in for gas and when he finished he stayed there for a while and
used our phone to get help, not saying what the problem was.
after 4 hrs help came and they were there for 2 more hrs and
I went out there to see what they were doing, he locked his keys
in the truck and they had damaged the rubber around the door
and by that time there were 6 guys helping, as they wrestled
with the lock and window i notice that the small vent was open
and right in front of them i stuck my arm in and unlocked the
door, those guys did look like deers in a head light, they gave
me $10 and a burger, nice :lol:

Idiot Sighting Today:

I hired a guy to help me with some small projects for a customer. One of the jobs I asked him to do was mount an air hose reel on a 12" square column. I gave him all the tools he needed to complete the job, should have taken about 15 minutes. After a about 20 minutes he comes back and says he can't drill the hole the drill bits no good, so without looking I give him another. When he came back for the third bit I got curious and went to see for myself the problem.

HE WAS RUNNING THE DRILL IN REVERSE!!!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :roll:
