    They walk among us

    THEY WALK AMONG US..........

    I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up
    $46.64 charge. I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She
    gave me back $46.64. I gave the money back to her and
    told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor. She
    became indignant and informed me she was educated and
    knew what she was doing, and returned the money again.
    I gave her the money back again...same scenario! I
    departed the store with the $46.64. This actually
    happened in Austin at MoPac Boulevard and Parmer Lane.

    I walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get-one-free
    coupon for a Grande Latte. I handed it to the girl and
    she looked over at a little chalkboard that said "buy
    one-get one free." "They're already
    buy-one-get-one-free," she said, "so I guess they're
    both free" She handed me my free Lattes and I walked
    out the door.

    While looking at a house, my brother asked the real
    estate agent which direction was north because, he
    explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every
    morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"

    When my brother explained that the sun rises in the
    east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and
    said, "Oh I don't keep up with that stuff."

    I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call
    center. One day I got a call from an individual who
    asked what hours the call center was open. I told him,
    "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days
    a week." He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific
    time?" Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh,
    Pacific."

    My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that
    the cases were discounted 10%.

    I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage
    area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told
    the woman there that my bags never showed up. She
    smiled and told me not to worry because she was a
    trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now,"
    she asked me, has your plane arrived yet?"

    While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man
    ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone
    and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4
    pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before
    responding. "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think
    I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces."

    Yep, They Walk Among Us!

    Talking

    This is a true one.
    I was standing Radcliffe's paint store during lunch when a guy walked in asking to buy some paint to paint his front porch.

    The sales person was joking around and said:
    "We're all sold out of Front Porch Paint - and we only have a few cans of Back Porch Paint left."
    "We should be getting more Front Porch Paint in next week."

    The guy said:
    OK...I'll come back next week.

    That'd be me. I find it amazing that some of the people I talk to are smart enough to remember to breathe.

    But I still find these funny.

    Back when I was in a Tech-Support-type field (1996ish), people kept calling about the same problem. Apparently Compaq sent out the wrong modem driver for a busload of their computers. Compaq's solution was to download the correct driver from their website.

    As an old MCSE and technician I can definitely see Compaq doing that.

    I am totally amazed by just how much so many people don't know about nearly everything.

    I once bough a case of oil for the price of one quart, because that's how the sticker on the box scanned.

    When I worked grocery, I had a woman ask me if I had any later dated milk in the back. I thought this to be an odd request since the milk on the shelf was good for 7 days, and she had 4 kids in tow. So I told her, "No, but we should be getting some in, in a few days." She accepted this answer, and was almost at the end of the aisle when it hit her that I had just told her to go @*$&% herself.

    I work in a college dorm as a chef.

    One day we were serving sweet and sour porc, and a girl comes up asking for some sweet and sour chicken. I kindly inform her that it is porc not chicken, to which she replies: "Well it's the same thing, isn't it?" My response was "Porc, chicken, they both come from the cow" All she did in response was agree and get her food.
