Be Careful Out There:
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.

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 they could not do that kind of thing." The clerk
then proceeded to give me back$1 and 75 cents in change.

Do no t 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 is a good place for them
to be crossing anymore."

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 lettuce.

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 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?!"

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 lunch at Texas Instruments.

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 < BR>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
