They walk among us

 I was at the checkout of a k-mart. The clerk rang up a $46.64 charge. I gave her a fifty-dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave it back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in my favor. She became indignant and informed me she was a U of SC graduate and knew what she was doing, and returned the money again. I departed the store with the $46.64.

I walked into a Mickey d’s with a buy one get one free coupon for a sandwich. 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 sandwiches and I walked out the door.

While looking at a home, 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 a call center that was open 24-7. 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, “Um, pacific.”

My friend had a spare key made for her car and kept it in a magnetic keeper that she put under her hood.

This is like the people that buy the lifesaving device that is designed to cut threw a seatbelt in the event that it won’t release after an accident, and they keep them in the trunk.

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?”

  1. loved especially the first one! i worked at kmart in high school but don’t think i ever did anything THAT stupid! i did other stupid stuff like dated the guys that worked there.

    That explaines alot…Just kidden.

  2. This is why I’ve lost faith in people and have become so embittered.
    I mean, I get a huge laugh out of it, but it’s scary all the same.

  3. Some years ago my cousin went to K-Mart and bought a $40 answering machine, among other things. Her total rang up around $15. She explained that it wasn’t right, asking the cashier to check the receipt. The cashier replied that it was right, so my cousin took her stuff, including the answering machine, and left. The K-Mart is now out of business.

    tee-hee. Thanks for reading. I love new guests.
