You Just Can't Fix Stupid!!

ONE

Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 'You don't?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.

TWO

I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar code she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is? ' I said to her 'I've changed my mind, I don't think I'll buy that today.' She sai d 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened.

THREE

A lady at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.'

FOUR

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. ' Do y ou need some help?' I asked. She replied, 'I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I dunno. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don' t you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk.'

FIVE

Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use copier machine paper,' th e secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies.

SIX

I was in a car dealership a while ago, when a large motor home was towed into the garage. The front of the vehicle was in dire need of repair and the whole thing generally looked like an extra in 'Twister.' I asked the manager what had happened. He told me that the driver had set the 'cruise control' and then went in the back to make a sandwich.

SE VEN

My neighbor works in the operations department in the central office of a large bank. Employees in the field call him when they have problems with their computers. One night he got a call from a woman in one of the branch banks who had this question: 'I've got smoke coming from the back of my terminal. Do you guys have a fire downtown?'

EIGHT

Police in Radnor , Pa. interrogated a suspect by placing a metal colander on his head and connecting it with wires to a photocopy machine. The message 'He's lying' was placed in the copier, and police pressed the copy button each time t hey thought the suspect wasn't telling the truth. Believing the 'lie d etector' was working, the suspect confessed.

NINE

A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid was eating ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and it should be fine. The mother says, I just gave him some ant killer.....

Dispatcher: Rush him in to emergency room!

Life is tough. It's tougher if you're stupid

This one is actually true, at least according to a documentary they had on Court TV. That just blew my mind.

The rest though... :eek:

Before the last tropical storm hit Florida my little brother went to Wal Mart to get some odds and ends. The guy in front of him in line had a shopping cart full of electric fans. When my brother asked what was up with the fans the guy replied..."When the tropical storm hits the power will probably go out. If it does my air conditioning won't work and it's going to get hot in the house....so I'm getting fans." When my brother asked how the fans were going to work the guy simply replied "Well maybe we'll have a little electricity."

Could someone please throw some chlorine in the gene pool.

Sometimes I send e-mail to myself and then when my computer goes ding! I click on it to see who sent me something.

We all have our moments. Just as long as they don't become permanents.

i always hated people like you when i worked at BK, bastards confuse the help and i had to fix everything. but of course doing what you do is like going to the children's hospital and making fun of kids.

True story: This is even after the story circulated around the internet, it actually happened when I was working at Sprint. A friend of mine and I worked for the internal IT help desk and he got a call from the new Sprint campus. A woman was complaining that her computer wouldn't turn on. After having her check the power switch and the cable in the back of the computer he asked her to check the power strip. She said she had to find a flashlight first. He asked if it was that dark under her desk. Her response. "Well, the power is out, so it's dark everywhere in here."

In her defense there were several people in her area with battery backups who were still up and running but. . . that's not much of a defense.
