We 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 we have the largest one that Sears made at the 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.
My daughter and I went through the McDonald's drive Thur window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter. She said, ' You gave me too much money.' I said ' yes I know, but this way you can just give me $1 bill back.' She sighed and went to get the the manager who asked me to repeat my request, I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said ' We're sorry but they could not do that kind of thing.' The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change. Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.
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 a good place for them to be crossing anymore.
My daughter went to the local Taco Bell and ordered a Taco. She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.' He said sorry, but they only had Iceberg Lettuce.
The stop light on the corner buzzes when it's 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?!'
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 headlight stare.
I worked with an individual who plugged her power ***** back into itself and for the sake of her life, could not understand why her system would not turn on.
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.
STAY ALERT!! They walk among us.....and the scary part is that they VOTE and they REPRODUCE!!
