"when ignorance attacks" - Funny :)

Now this is bad...........

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 a 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.

      The paragraph above doesn't amaze me because of what happened a couple of

months ago. I was checking out at the local Foodland 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?" and I said to her "I've changed my mind, I don't think I'll buy that today." She said "OK" and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened.....

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      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."

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. "Do you 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 convenient 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.

      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," the 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.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      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.

      IDIOTS AT WORK...

      Sign in a gas station: Coke -- 49 cents. Two for a dollar.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      IDIOTS & COMPUTERS... 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?"

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                  IDIOTS ARE EASY TO PLEASE:

      I was sitting in my science class, when the teacher commented that the next day would be the shortest day of the year. My lab partner became visibly excited, cheering and clapping. I explained to her that the amount of daylight changes, not the actual amount of time. Needless to say, she was very disappointed.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Police in Radnor, Pennsylvania, 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 they thought the suspect wasn't telling the truth.

      Believing the "lie detector" was working, the suspect confessed.

I believe most of these. Here is why:

 

About 20 years ago I went to a college  --YES, college-- library wanting to use the microfilm. The girl at the desk, a Soph-more (if there was anyone, in the Greek meaning of the word = "wise-fool") said she had to do most of the stuff for me. So she asked for my reference and after I gave it she turned to the girl next to her and asked, "How do you spell San Francisco?" :donno:

 

I read a Reader's Digest article I have always remembered. The man writing it had a job of helping grocery stores make more money.

He told one owner to change the price of his can of soup from 28 cents to "2 for 29". The owner scoffed but said he would do it. His soup sales soared. Reasoning goes as follows: women thought they were saving a penny.

There was a time when people found these incidents funny, now they get angry at such people. I have a question, why does the topic title says "ignorance"? These people can be called naive or dumb, I don't understand why they should be called ignorant. I have heard many incidents about absent minded scientists doing such things.

this post is from 2002 but doesn't stop being hilarious!! especially the Macdo cashier I guess that proves the Macdo part-time job stereotype that its mostly a bunch of teens working there with no idea what they're doing.

 

I remember once in grammar school we were playing a geography game where u had to guess the country when given the capital. the miss asked the girl next to me for the country with capital Paris she replied "London" so it was wrong. a different girl responded France and got it right, the 1st girl looked at her AMAZED & told her "u are the smartest person i ever met in my life"!!!! and guess what she meant it for real. the whole class could not stop laughing that day.
