SIGHTING:
We had to have the garage door repaired.

The Se**s 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 Se**s 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. He said, ‘NO, it’s  not.’ Four is larger than two.’  

We  haven’t used Se**s repair since.

  SIGHTING:
My  daughter and I went through a fast food 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 we could not do that kind of thing.’ The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and 75 cents in change. 

Do  not confuse the clerks at fast food restaurants.

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.’

SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE
:
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.

  SIGHTING
:
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   Birmingham  ,   Ala.


  SIGHTING  :
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it’s safe to cross the street. I was  crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker 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  was a probation officer in Wichita , KS  


SIGHTING
:
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the  company due to ‘downsizing,’ our manager commented cheerfully, ‘This is fun. We should do this more often.’ Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at  each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.
This was a lunch at   Texas  Instruments.
