Gene 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.
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

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 iceburg. He was a Chef?
Yep...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."

The stoplight on the corner buzzes when its 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
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and 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 a bunch at Texas Instruments.
I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back
into itself and for the sake of her own life, couldn't understand why her
system would not turn on.
A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office no less.
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 drivers 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 !
STAY ALERT! They walk among us .. and they REPRODUCE!!!
