Show Your Stupid Sign
It's been said there should be a "stupid sign" people can show. Here are some candidates:
Sighting #1: I was at the airport, checking in at the gate, when the
airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage
without your knowledge?" I said, "If it was without my knowledge, how
would I know?" He smiled and nodded knowingly, "That's why we ask."
Sighting #2: The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to
cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged co-worker of mine,
when she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I
explained that it signals to blind people when the light is red. She
responded, appalled, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?"
Sighting #3: At a good-bye lunch for an old and dear co-worker who is
leaving the company due to "right-sizing," our manager spoke up and
said, "This is fun. We should have lunch like this more often." Not
another word was spoken. We just looked at each other like deer
staring into the headlights of an approaching truck.
Sighting #4: I worked with an Individual who plugged his power strip
back into itself and for the life of him could not understand why his
system would not turn on.
Sighting #5: (a rare "double sighting"): A friend had a brilliant
idea for saving disk space. He thought if he put all his Microsoft
Word documents into a tiny font they'd take up less room. When he
told me, I was with another friend. She thought it was a good idea too.
Sighting #6: (from Tech Support): Tech Support: "How much free space
do you have on your hard drive?" Individual: "Well, my wife likes to
get up there on that Internet, and she downloaded ten hours of free
space. Is that enough?"
Sighting #7: (from Tech Support): Individual: "Now what do I do?"
Tech Support: "What is the prompt on the screen?" Individual: "It's
asking for 'Enter Your Last Name.'" Tech Support: "Okay, so type in
your last name." Individual: "How do you spell that?"
Sighting # 8: When my husband and I arrived at an automobile
dealership to pick up our car, we were told that the keys had been
accidentally 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's side, I instinctively tried the
door handle and discovered it was open. "Hey," I announced to the
technician, "It's open!" "I know," answered the young man. "I already
got that side."
