Yes... They Walk Among Us


I was at the checkout of a Kmart. The clerk rang up $46.64 charge. I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave it back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor and gave her the money back. She became indignant and informed me she was educated and knew what she was doing and returned the money again. I gave her the money back again … same senario ! I departed the store with the $46.64.

I walked into a Mickey D’s with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon For a sandwich. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little Chalkboard that said “buy one-get one free.” “They’re already buy-one- get-one-free”, she said, “so I guess they’re both free” She handed me my free sandwiches and I walked out the door.

One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when one Of them shouted, “Look at that dead bird!” Someone looked up at the Sky and said, “Where ?”

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn’t want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, “Does the sun rise in the north?” When my brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, “Oh I don’t keep up with that stuff.”

I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, “The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” He responded, “Is that Eastern or Pacific time?” Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, “Uh, Pacific.”

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut through a Seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went To the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags Never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a Trained professional and I was in good hands. “Now,” she asked me, has your plane arrived yet?"

While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before responding. “Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don’t think I’m hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.”


LOL. I went to a take out pizza store the other day with a $1.00 off coupon. The high school clerk, or maybe it was high school drop out clerk totaled my order. He looked at the coupon and actually got out a calculator to subtract the $1 off. They walk among us…

Several years ago in New Jersey, a home inspector inspected a residential dwelling for a state senator. According to the senator, the inpsector did a poor job that resulted in the senator having to incur over $3500 in personal expenses.

In anger, he wrote and arranged to have passed (with a little help from ASHI) the toughest law on the books. It was so restricitive that, after its first year of existence, only one home inspector got a license under it to be added to the list of licensed inspectors.

Oh…the list of licensed inspectors were those who were “grandfathered” under the law and the very first license was issued under the grandfathering clause to…have you guessed it, yet?..the inspector who screwed up the Senator’s new house.

Yes…they walk among us…:roll:

(A similar story can be told regarding the HI law in Massachusetts…an inspector was sued several times and was the focus of the media through the entire effort of getting the law passed. Once the law passed…guess who got a seat on the Massachusetts State Home Inspector Licensing Board. Yep…Mr. Television, himself. You can’t make this stuff up.)

The problem with the New Jersey thing was a termite issue that isn’t even covered under a home inspection.

Wow… that is funny.

As the old saying goes… everyone rises to the level of their incompetence…:mrgreen:

The next time you get gas and have to pre pay instead of saying so many dollars worth, just tell them how many gallons you want and see the lost look on their face!
