My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave

the clerk a $5 bill. Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter..

She said, 'you gave me too much money.'

I said,'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.'

She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.

I did so, and he handed me back the quarter, and said 'We're sorry but

they could not do that kind of thing.' The clerk then proceeded to give me

back 75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at MacD's.


We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears repairman told us that

one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the

opener. I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one Sears

made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, 'Lady,

you need a 1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and

he said,

'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'

We haven't used Sears repair since. Happened in Ottawa


I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a newneighbour call the local

township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING

sign on our road. The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out

here! I don't think this is a

good place for them to be crossing anymore.'

Story from Collingwood , Ontario .


My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the

person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.' He said he was sorry, but

they only had iceberg lettuce.

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee

asked, 'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'

To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'

He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'

Happened in Toronto , Ontario .


The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I

was crossing with an intellectually challenged co-worker of mine. She

asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind

people when the light is red.

Appalled, she responded, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?!'

She is a government employee in Montreal , P.Q.


When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our

car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to theservice

department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the drivers

side door. As I watched from the

passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that

it was unlocked. 'Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'its open!'

His reply, 'I know. I already got that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in Guelph , Ontario

STAY ALERT! They walk among us...and they vote as well...

It used to be easier to weed them out of the gene pool before we had to start putting warnings on everything and building safety versions of everything dangerous. :-)

Awww yes, the new PC world where one must treat all as equals ... even when one's mind wishes to do the opposite ... lol
