They Walk Among Us...

IDIOTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD: 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 were being hit by cars" and he didn't want them to cross there
anymore. This one was from Kingman, KS.

IDIOTS IN FOOD SERVICE: 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. And he was a
Kansas City chef!

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."
Happened in Birmingham, Ala.

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 when 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

     IDIOT SIGHTING: At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who
was leaving the company due to "downsizing," our manager commented
cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this more often." Not a word was
spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.
This was a bunch at Texas Instruments.

IDIOT SIGHTING: I work with an individual who plugged her power strip
back into itself and for the life of her 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's 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!"
To which he replied, "I know - I already got that side." This was at the
Ford dealership in Canton, Mississippi!

*and they walk among us


Kinda scary, huh?
