How Do These People Survive???

i just received this from a friend of mine. really makes you wonder if maybe there was some kind of chemical spill into the gene pool. ONE Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 'You don't?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets (Unbelievable but sadly true...) TWO I was checking out at the local Woolworths with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?' I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.' She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened. THREE A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' (keep shuddering!!) FOUR I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked. She replied, 'I knew I! should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....' PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!! FIVE Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies. Brunette, by the way!! SIX A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......' Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency!' do you know anyone who just doesn't have a clue??? do YOU have a clue???

Your first scenerio seems to me that the girl did not relate 12 and a half dozen as the same thing. Especially, when she said we only have 6 9 and 12. Did this really happen to you, especially with the food divider. One would think that the cashier had seen a divider before, unless it was her first day on the job and her mind was somewhere else.

Sadly, I could probably be any or all of the people mentioned here. Just yesterday, I was driving home from town, and saw my husband coming in the opposite direction in our car. I waved at him, and only when he'd gone did it occur to me it couldn't have been him, as I was actually driving our car myself! Whoops ... This sort of thing seems to be happening to me with increasing regularity these days - so I can't even laugh at these moronic muppets. They're probably having a huge laugh at ME.

Wow!! Thanks for the laugh! But that is kinda sad! I have no idea what i would have done if that would have happened to me. To be honest I probably wouldn't be to nice. Especially to the girl who tried to scan the divider! lol

Thank you for the laughs. I couldn't help but get a chuckle out of your stories but all to sadly they are true. In todays society so many people rely on machines to do their thinking that they have a hard time thinking for themselves. I have a friend like that. She never fails to make us laugh but sadly she isn't trying to be funny.

Lol, thanks for the good laugh. It's so sad, but I have encountered a couple of those situations. A lot of kids nowadays don't know what a dozen is. What do they teach them in school? Same with the blank paper in the photo copier and the remote car opener. I have also seen people use the disk drive as a cup holder. But my favorite was this girl in the computer lab who was desperately looking for the 'any' key because the instructions said to push any key on the keyboard...
