Are people REALLY this stupid? - Page 16

post #226 of 539
thought i would throw one in... my friend was wanting to go see the blue angels at the pensecola civic center. i love my friend, but sometimes she is not so bright. she called me very upset because the lady that answered when she called to ask if the air show was indoors or outdoors, laughed at her.she said she needed to know if she needed to bring a blanket and chairs.she got even more upset when i started laughing. i told her to think about how the air show be inside? still didnt get it. i said "sweetie, do you think the planes could fly inside?.. " needless to say she did realize, and was very embarassed. i really worry about her sometimes....

Candy120 and everyone else.....I AM SOOOOOOO SORRY about the dumas comment. I ONLY meant it to be funny since it kinda looks like (dumb...you know what). And when I said "people being stupid" I was ONLY referring to the people who were calling you. NOT the wonderful people here in CC.

Please....forgive me if I offended. It's NOT how I meant it at ALL! Just trying to be funny!

mookey....that has got to be one of the craziest things I've ever heard! An air show INSIDE! I wanna go to one of those!
Did your friend do some serious drugs when she was younger? I have a friend like that....but my friend rarely comes around to seeing reality after it's pointed out to her. I blame it on the short time she did drugs!
So glad I never tried them!

Okay, okay, okay I have to add one.

I live in Minnesota. We have a great freeway system which has sound barriers on either side of the roads. They can run for miles. They are constructed of cement and/or wood and can rise up to 20 feet. Just think very large partition brick wall. Anyway, one summer I was working with a women that just moved from one of the warmer states, Georgia or possibly one of the Carolinas, but either way she had not experienced one of Minnesotas infamous winters yet. One day as we were driving to a luncheon appointment and I said something like, oh look at the new bushes that DOT (department of transportation) planted next to the sound barrier.

Incredulously she said, Sound Barrier? And I said yes, over there look.

Now remember, she had heard about our winters but not experienced one, she said to me, sound barriers, I thought they were walls to help keep out the snow.

I almost drove off the freeway, and then asked her how would Mother Nature make it snow in the neighborhoods but not on the freeways?

These stories are awesomeicon_biggrin.gif I was up all night reading and had to continue this morningicon_razz.gif

I've got a couple...

a few weeks ago, my mom was in taking a bath in her big soaker tub and I was in her living room watching tv with dad. Suddenly, I hear her frantically yelling my name. My dad and I both look at each other and I ran in there. The water wouldn't turn off in the bathtub (it was a broken valve). She said, "Jenny! We've got to get this water turned off before it overflows! There aren't any overflow drains in this tub!" I said, "mom...you do realize you can pop open the main drain...right?" She was like...."oh icon_redface.gif " We ended up having to turn off the main water to the house so dad could get under the tub and fix the valve. It's just funny thinking of the site of her naked, frantically trying to turn off the water like that lol.

Also, I used to work as a waitress at a Mexican restaurant. It was closing time and we had one of those tables of people that came in at the last minute. They took their time and then, when the kitchen was pretty much all closed up, they ordered dessert: Ice cream nachos. Now, the nachos were already gone so the waiter said that he could get them the ice cream with cinnamon/sugar on it but just that we didn't have nachos. They were fine with that so he went back to put it together. He couldn't find the cinnamon/sugar shaker so asked one of the cooks where it was, "back shelf" ok...well, as it turned out, he grabbed the wrong shaker. There was an identical shaker that contained meat tenderizer. The customer was POed and I don't blame him but wow, that server must have felt stupid! yuck!

lol ok I have to tell another one, this time on myself that just happened two days ago. I was at my friends house and when I had walked in I had put my things down on her table. She was giving me a paper that she wanted me to read and I was in the kitchen so she said, "I put it on top of your phone." I came in the room because I hadnt heard what she said and she repeated, "I put it on top of your phone." I looked at the phone and said "okay" and then instantly and SERIOUSLY I looked at her and started feeling my pockets and said "did I bring my phone in here?" She just stared at me icon_eek.gif and said very slowly, "I...put...it...on...YOUR...PHONE". icon_confused.gif We were laughing hysterically. It was just one of those lost moments.

Here's one on me: I was taking the trash to the curb and since it was a chilly day, I dropped the trash bag on the curb then began running up the driveway back to the house. It was while I was RUNNING that I discovered I had forgotten to put my bra on that morning! How in the world do ya forget to do that! Thank god I discovered it before I got to the office. (I'm at the age where I'm not one those pretty young things who look good bra-less! I mean, geesh, it would have been a close call to determine if it was my boob or my belly-button that was itching!)

A very dear friend of mine does not cook often and is not as dumb as this story makes him sound...That being said...He and another unfortunate friend went to the store to get the ingredients to make a recipe. They found everything they needed except for the final ingredient which neither of them had ever heard of. They asked one of the workers in the store if she knew where they could find four cups of yield. AND THEN the woman told them she thought it was on the baking aisle!!!

Another one I heard recently almost killed me. A woman told me that her daughter's 9th grade English teacher told the class, "People in the Renaissance had difficult lives because they had to watch out for dinosaurs." icon_eek.gif

I'm sorry- it was my wording that was unclear...The bottom of the recipe said, "Yield: 4 cups." He thought it was an ingredient when it was really the amount the recipe made.
