I went inside a national fast food restaurant and ordered 2 ice cream cones. I was asked if they were for here or to go and said 'What difference does it make?' The girl behind the counter said 'I can't let you have them if you don't answer my question'. I said 'One is for here and one is to go'. I paid for both and left.
Silly People at a Corporate Training Session:
An actual tip from page 16 of the 'Environmental, Health & Safety Handbook for Employees: 'Blink your eyelids periodically to lubricate your eyes.'
Silly People at the Mall:
I was signing the receipt for my credit card purchase when the clerk noticed that I had never signed my name on the back of the credit card. She informed me that she could not complete the transaction unless the card was signed. When I asked why, she explained that it was necessary to compare the signature on the credit card with the signature I just signed on the receipt. So I signed the credit card in front of her. She carefully compared that signature to the one I signed on the receipt. As luck would have it, they matched.
Silly People Think the Government Can Fix Anything:
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: Many deer were being hit by cars and he no longer wanted them to cross there.
Silly People Walking the Steets Among Us:
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged co-worker of mine, when he asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals to blind people when the light is red. He responded, appalled, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?'
Silly People at Work Say Amazing Things:
Recognize anyone here? At a good-bye lunch for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to 'downsizing,' our manager spoke up and said, 'This is fun. We should have lunch like this more often!' Not another word was spoken. We just looked at each other like deer staring into the headlights of an approaching Mack truck.
Silly People Do Very Silly Things Sometimes:
I worked with an Individual who plugged his power strip back into itself and for the life of him could not understand why his system would not turn on.
Silly People Who are Highly Skilled, Still Do Silly Things:
When we arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told that the keys had been accidentally 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's side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered it was open. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'It's open!' 'I know,' answered the young man.- 'I already got that side.'
