Recently, when I went to McDonald's and I saw on the menu that you could
have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken
McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen of the Mcnuggets.
"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
"So I can't order a half- dozen Mcnuggets, but I can order six?" That's
So I  shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.


The paragraph above doesn't amaze me because of what happened a couple
months ago. I was checking out at the local
Foodland with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on
belt close to mine. I picked up one of
those "Dividers" that they keep by the cash register and placed it
our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl
had scanned all of my items, she picked up the "Divider" and looked it
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
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
She had no clue to what had just happened.


A lady at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and
pulling it out very quickly. When inquired as to what
she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept
asking for credit card number, so she was using the
AT "thingy".


I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. Do you
some help?" I asked. She replied, "I knew I
should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I
get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to
a distant convenience 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
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
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
back to make a sandwich.


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


IDIOTS & COMPUTERS: My neighbor works in the operations department in
central office of a large bank. Employees
in the field call him when they have problems with their computers. One
night he got a call from a woman
in one of the branch banks who had this question: "I've got smoke coming
from the back of my terminal. Do you guys have a
fire downtown?"


IDIOTS ARE EASY TO PLEASE: I was sitting in my science class, when the
teacher commented that the next day would
be the shortest day of the year. My lab partner became visibly excited,
cheering and clapping. I explained to her that the
amount of daylight changes, not the actual amount of time. Needless to
she was very disappointed.


Police in Radnor, Pennsylvania, interrogated a suspect by placing a
colander on his head and connecting it with wires to
a photocopy machine. The message "He's lying" was placed in the copier,
police pressed the copy button each time they
thought the suspect wasn't telling the truth. Believing the "lie
was working, the suspect confessed
