They Walk Among Us

This is a collection of letters sent to a South of England Newspaper
who had asked for examples of stupidity
*** SIGHTING No.1
My daughter and I went to the McDonald's drive through check-out window
to pay our bill and I gave the clerk a £5 note.
Our total bill was £4.20, so I also handed her a 20 pence piece.
She said, 'You gave me too much money.'
I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me £1 back.'
She sighed and went to get the Manager who asked me to repeat my
I did so, and he handed me back the 20 pence and said 'We're sorry but
we do not do that kind of thing.'
The clerk then proceeded to give me back 80 pence in change.
Do not confuse the clerks at MacDonald's !!
*** SIGHTING No2
We had to have the garage door repaired. The GARADOR 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 moment, and said that we had the largest one GARADOR
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 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not.
Four is larger than two..'
We haven't used Garador repair since. Happened in Moor Park , near
*** SIGHTING No3
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbour call the
Highways Department to request the removal of the 'DEER CROSSING' sign
from our road.
The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars on this stretch of
road! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing, any-
Story from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.
*** SIGHTING No 4
My daughter went to a local Kentucky Fried Chicken 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.
From South Oxhey , Hertfordshire.
*** SIGHTING No 5
I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee
'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'
To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I
He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'
Happened at Luton Airport
*** SIGHTING No 6
The traffic light on the corner buzzes when the lights turn red and it
is safe to cross the road.
I was crossing with an intellectually challenged friend 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
She is a Local County Council employee in Harrow , Middlesex. (And
she's NOT blonde)
*** SIGHTING No7
When my husband and I arrived at our local Ford dealer 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 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 Fitter/Mechanic, 'itís open!'
His reply: 'I know. I already did that side.'
This was at the Ford dealership in St Albans , Hertfordshire.
STAY ALERT! They walk among us. AND THEY BREED!

When DD worked at the local Dunkin Donuts as a salesperson standing in front hundreds of clearly labeled donuts, she was frequently asked, "What kind of donuts do you have?"

We have a dollar store in our town where every single thing is a dollar. I've always wanted to go in, point to something, and ask "how much is that?".
Hahahaha, maybe that's what the customers were doing, although DD didn't think so!
