    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 in Canton,MS

    ```````````````````````````````````````````````````````

    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.

    When I was a 'learner diver' the site foreman wanted me to take a huge barrel full of oil to the other side of the harbour in a tiny boat.  I told him this was impractical and suggested we just toss the drum in the water and tow it over - he refused saying it would sink.  The ensuing discussion scalted to a mild argument and attracted everyone else.  The general consensus that the barrel full of oil (that is lighter than water) would sink to the bottom and this view was sealed when the site engineer laughed at me.  I bet them all a tenner each that it would float and they all dutifully put up the cash (140 GBPounds) and I covered it.  I rolled the drum off the edge, collected the cash and then towed the barrel to the other side.

    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 Iknow, 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 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 do that same change thing at the grocery store all the time and never a problem. Whatever I hand the cashier, they are trained to just enter it into the register and the register does the math. I would have thought McDonald's would have been equally coordinated.  Oh, well.

      I did learn long ago to never try to round out change at a 7-11. It will make the clerk's head explode every time.

        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.'

          I am wheelchair bound and the mail box is across a street where people don't understand what a speed limit is. There have been cars who squeal their brakes trying to get stopped in time and others who go around me doing way over the speed limit. When I talked to the local post office about having my mail box moved,the postmaster told me that after an accident happens he will move the mail box. Isn't that like putting the cart in front of the horse?

    If you have ever read some of the questions asked her at Hub Pages, by people who speak and write poor,broken English that makes no sense at all, you have  the answer to your question.

    To use the southern vernacular, "Well, bless her little heart!"
    She was just trying to be sweet and helpful by saving the pretty deer.
