    Funny, but also a sad commentary on complete ignorance and lack of common sense!

    DO NOT read while eating or drinking---it is too dangerous!:>)!

    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 Wal-Mart 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 !!!
    (This one really got me, folks--I about choked to death on my cup of tea!)

    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...'

    Dispatch er: 'Rush him in to emergency!'

    SIX
    Two friends were walking down the street. Coming from the other direction was a modern young man with nose and ear rings, complete with a chain from nose ring to earring. One friend said to the other. "Wow, that must really hurt when he turns his head."


    Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!!

    Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too. Don't laugh.....it is all true...

    If you are under 50, you can stop reading now......................

    Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!

    01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
    02.. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first
    03. No one expects you to run--anywhere.
    04. People call at 9 PM and ask, "did I wake you?"
    05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
    06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
    07. Things you buy now won't wear out.
    08. You can eat supper at 4 PM.
    09. You can live without sex but not your glasses.
    10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
    11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
    12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.
    13. You sing along with elevator music.
    14. Your eyes won't get much worse.
    15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
    16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
    17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
    18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.
    19. You can't remember who sent you this list.
    20. And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.

    Forward this to every one you can remember right now!
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    When had a large 4-H group about 20 years ago, we had a large clock in the arena, but all the kids kept asking the time. One day I realized NONE of them could tell time on a regular clock! Yep, they all learned that--and also taught them how to make change the old-fashioned way before our fund raiser

    Actually, a few years ago an Army nephew told me more or less the same thing. The keeper of the xerox would only allow COPIES and couldn't give out paper, so had him put in a blank sheet and made 50 "copies" of his blank sheet of paper.
    Military rules at that time!!!

    I find this one very funny. In german if you want your partner over the phone to get the right letters you dont go for the name of Dangaard like: d, a, n, g, a, a, r, d.

    you say Dora, Anton, Nordpol, Gustay, Anton, Anton, Richard, Dora. Each letter has a name attached to prevent mixup.
    This Dummy did write all down - it did reach Dangaard anyway.

    Thanks so much for the laughs. And you are right, kids today can not even count change back to you should their register not tell them how much to give back to you. I worked with a lot of these folks and it is really sad. Take care and thanks again. MaryB
