IDIOT SIGHTING:
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 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.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out 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 a dollar bill back." She
sighed and went to get 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
we cannot do that kind of thing." The clerk then proceeded to give me
back $1 and 75 cents in change.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
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 anymore."

IDIOT SIGHTING:
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 iceberg lettuce.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
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."

IDIOT SIGHTING:
The stoplight 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 are blind people doing driving?!" She is a probation officer.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
We were having a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear co-worker, as
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 lunch at Texas
Instruments.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself
and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her system would
not turn on. A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff's office, no
less.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
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 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, "It's open!" His
reply, "I know. I already got that side. This was at the Ford
dealership.

If you don't understand these you're an idiot.

IDIOT SIGHTING:
When I left Hawaii and was transferred to Florida , I still had the
Hawaiian plates on my car, as my car was shipped from Hawaii . I was
parking somewhere (I can't remember) and a guy asked me "Wow, you
drove from Hawaii to here?" I looked at him and quickly said "Yep. I
took the Hawaii- San Francisco Bridge." He nodded his head and said
"Cool!"


STAY ALERT!
They walk among us, they vote AND they reproduce.

Didn't you already post these several months back? I know I have seen these posted here before at least two other times. I think RainyDay posted them once?

Tiger - yes, they have been posted at least once before.

Maggie -
I for one am not an idiot...if I were to vote today, I would vote for Trump.

I follow politics quite a bit. I do not follow party lines. I have had republican and democratic signs up at different times on my lawn. I actually listen, learn, decipher between the lines, research actual votes that the different politicians have actually made or not. Back in the day, I voted for Ross P. You do understand that there would be an awful lot of lost souls - I call THEM idiots, if they were ever to leave the party affiliations off the ballots. Because there is a whole lot of Americans that vote the party line so they will not have to think. Those are the idiots - not the people that are thinking, intelligent, inquisitive, and not afraid to color outside of the line.





This is why politics does not belong on the forums.

Who would place an open ended political statement such as this on the forums and expect no response? Well, only an I _ _ _ T. (Hint, it has five letters.)

I posted this on Facebook and meant to remove that opening line. I'll scrub it now. Sorry I didn't mean to make this political.

Okay, I just wanted to ask if it had been posted before because I thought I was losing my mind or something. No harm done in posting again for others, just thought it may have been one of those weird dejavu things where you think you remember seeing it before but you actually didn't.

Someone sent this to me via email. I thought it was funny and posted it here and on fb. As for it being posted here before by me or anyone else, I can't remember a joke as long as it takes to tell it.[/i]
