Idiot Sightings (1-4)

 

 


Sighting #1:

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate, when the airport
employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without
your knowledge?"

I said, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He
smiled and nodded knowingly, "That's why we ask."

Sighting #2:

The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to cross the street.

I was crossing with an intellectually challenged co-worker of
mine, when she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I
explained that it signals to blind people when the light is red.

She responded, appalled, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?"

Sighting #3:

At a good-bye lunch for an old and dear co-worker who is
leaving the company due to "right sizing," our manager spoke
up and said, "This is fun. We should have lunch like this more
often."

Not another word was spoken. We just looked at each other like deer
staring into the headlights of an approaching truck.

Sighting #4:

I worked with an individual who plugged her power strip back into
itself and for the life of her could not understand why her system
would not turn on.
