Hubby worked in a bank's lockbox dept (that's the PO Box where you send your credit card pymts, light bills, etc.). One of his staff brought him a check and said, "I need to take this one to international." He looked at it and asked "Why?" She got real exasperated with him and said, "Duh!! Because it's drawn on a a new MEXICO bank!" He said, "DUH! New Mexico is part of the United States!!"

So yeah ... they're out there!

Our little city published a directory for the well known businesses and sent it to every new move-in and anyone who registered with the city's website, as well as had it for pick-up in various locations (post offices, etc.)

The listed number for the library was actually a residential phone number, who was inundated with calls. They didn't want to change their number (why?) so the city bought them a new phone system & answering machine. If you call it, the message is the lady telling the story and then directs you to the correct # for the library. She said in the news article covering it, "You wouldn't believe how many people actually DO call the library - and at all hours!"

And she's probably allowed to drive, vote and pro-create! icon_surprised.gif



I'm just reading this thread now, and I came across this and had to comment. I am originally from Albuquerque, and heard things like this all the time! Some of my favorites:

"Is this your first trip to the US?"

"Can I see your green card?" icon_eek.gif

"Wow! You speak perfect english! You don't have an accent or anything! I didn't know they taught english there!" icon_rolleyes.gif

"You are awful white for a Mexican!" icon_eek.gificon_rolleyes.giftapedshut.gif

At my college there was a lady in administraction named Sue Suchim-Cox, pronounced Suck-em-Cocks. She's wonderful lady, I don't know why she hyphenated her name.

I just wanted to thank all you ladies for lifting my spirits today. I was feeling stressed out all day and all this laughing has made my day so much better!! I laughed so hard at one post that I actually woke my little dd up. She thought I was crying (I actually did have a tear from laughing so hard!).

OMG!!! I finally finished this thread!!! You guys are a riot!!!

I think back to the time that my friend from Ontario and myself (from Manitoba at the time) met up in Banff Alberta. All of a sudden he looks at a car driving by with Alberta license plates and says "Hey, Alberta plates... You don't see THAT every day." I looked at him and said "I suppose you might see that more in ALBERTA!!!"

I had a BF that was VERY serious. Too serious, in fact. And one day I looked at him while he was driving and said "If they took all of the sponges out of the ocean, how much do you think the ocean would rise by? Do you think it would flood Vancouver?" He looked at me like I was stupid, and then proceeded to tell me WHY the ocean level wouldn't change. OMG!!!!

I just remembered another really funny story about my DH. Here, it is a requirement for the teachers in each dept. to schedule 15 minutes of exercise for their students. My DH was teaching Seniors that year, he took them outside for a walk and was trying to get them pumped. He started running backwards and spouting off things to motivate them and then.......he jogged right into the drivers ed car. His students saw the car sitting there but didn't say anything. Of course all of his students were dying laughing. Then, he turned around to see the driving teacher and her students sitting in the car cracking up at him. One of his students said, "Dang, she's (the student driver) going to get an F for hitting a pedestrian and she's still in park." icon_lol.gif

My son is always playing practical jokes on everyone.
He is an avid sports fan. He convinced my husband (who never watches sports) that the guy standing behind the first baseman was the back up first baseman.
My son got contact lenses when he was twelve. He was going to walk to school, so I told him to be careful so his contacts didn't freeze to his eyes. (It was winter.) He fell for it hook line and sinker.

Okay this one is more of a practical joke. READ CAREFULLY! You might have to read it more than once. I have friends that smoke and they were all drinking at my old apartment one day and I happen to love taking videos of people when they are drunk because there is never a dull moment. Wellll, this guy picks up a candle to light a cigarette and he's puffing and puffing and looks at me (I was laughing) and asks me why his cigarette won't light the candle (confused, he was talking backwards) and I told him "the candle won't light your cigarette because there is no flame (it wasn't lit)!!!!LOL!!! icon_lol.gif To add to the injury the cigarette was backwards!!

Here's a good one.....The market I used to work for has a website that has a link to my myspace page so that they can continue to sell cakes and direct customers to a place where they can view the work. This all makes sense right? The other day, the 23 year old store manager sent me an e-mail stating that I should put my phone number on the myspace page so people can reach me icon_confused.gif .

I thought that's why I was paying them referal fees, after all they send their customers to their website, they connect to mine and then they call the market to place the order. I then call the client and fine tune the order and quote the price.

Did she really think that I wanted to post my phone number so that the millions of people who surf myspace can call me directly? icon_confused.gificon_eek.gif Why don't I just give them my address while I'm at it. icon_lol.gif

My grandmother use to be a huge baker,..for as long as i remember she use to bake huge speads and freeze them before christmas. Well as years went by she begain to loose her eye sight. A few years back she made a coconut cake , me and several family members had cut into it and had some,...we begin to eat it and my dad was like,.."mom what did you put in this?" She said nothing i dont normally,...
Dad looked at me and pulled out a section of paper towel' We all laughed but poor grandma shook her head....she always layed her layers on paper towels to cool and she didnt notice the paper towel on the layer she layed on top of the cake.....she iced it and she said well i was wondering why that icing was so hard to spead on the sides. She has long since give up baking,..i guess thats where i get it at.

My MIL just got back from Jamaica mon and we were taking care of her animals and other stuff. I saw that her new cordless phone lets you program a name for that phone like bedroom or living room. We put OH SH!# on her LR phone and GO VOLS on her BR phone as she 500% despises the vols. She got home and calls us to say, "Someone named OH SH!# is on my caller ID. I am going to call them back to see who it is. I just can't believe somebody named OH SH!# called me." She goes on and on about it. Later, she wanted to know what we did to her phones b/c the BR phone says GO VOLS. We knew she was gullible but we not THAT gullible, we were cracking up that she thought that was an actual caller.

My Dad and Stepmom went on a cruise. It was their first, and they were very excited about all the amenities, especially the 24-hour self serve ice cream bar. The seocnd or third night, they were down for a nighttime snack when they struck up a conversation with the guy who was ahead of them, talking about how much they enjoyed the ice cream bar. "Yep," he says topping his scoop with a spoonful of hot chocolate, "I come here every night." Then he LICKED the spoon, and put it back in the tub of chocolate! icon_surprised.gif My parents were horrified and needless to say, did not enjoy the bar so much after that.
