Idiot Sightings 2 Are Food Related

I have to admit, today is one of those days.  I feel like an IDIOT, too much to do, not enough time to do it, but forge ahead none the less.  Tehn to break up my day my awesome wife sends me an email that just had me rolling and busting a gut.  So here it is formated and posted for your fun too.

2 of these are food related, the rest are just there to make you laugh and make you burn a few extra calories.

Enjoy. ~ Patrick


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 bill 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

IDIOT SIGHTING (in one of my mtb riding places, Collingwood):

I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbor 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.

From Winnipeg , Manitoba .


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 the service 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…


Hope you got a good chuckle out of that, it should be good for about 50-75 calories and set off a nice wave of positive endorphins that will go a long way to feeling and looking great.
