Would you rather have common sense or be very smart??

I have a friend whom is smart and carries a great sense of humor, but his common sense is not so great. He forgets simple things like where he was sitting, or how does he get home, or he'll forget the light switch a number of times and many times his zipper and also to tie his shoes. I am not saying he's stupid nor am I saying any smart person is, but my question is, do smart people have less common sense? Sorry if my initial question is not clear.

Too bad, I've been blessed with both...lol! Just kidding! I guess, I would prefer being extremely smart because having common sense is easy to achieve than being smart. Anybody could have common sense but not everybody is smart!

Personally I would much rather posess common sense than be extremely book smart. I think that every day life takes more common sense than book smarts. I know that my ex husband was extremely smart and was completely useless when I tried to teach him how to cook or clean. He just couldn't get the concept or how to do it or why. So, I think that common sense should take precedence over book smarts in some cases.
