My husband and I pulled up to the McDonald's drive-thru window, and I handed the cashier a $5 bill. Our total came to $4.25, so I also gave her 25 cents. She looked at the money and said, 'You've given me too much.'
I replied, 'Yes, I'm aware, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.'
Letting out a sigh, she called over the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did, and he handed me back the 25 cents, saying, 'We apologize, but we don't accommodate that kind of request.'
Despite my explanation, the cashier handed me back 75 cents in change. Don't confuse the folks at McDonald's.
We had to get our garage door repaired. The repairman informed us that part of the problem was our opener didn't have a 'large' enough motor. I pondered for a moment and mentioned that we had the largest one available at the time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and replied, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'
Perplexed, I explained that 1/2 is larger than 1/4. He firmly stated, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is greater than two.'
Needless to say, we haven't used that repairman since...
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: 'Too many deer are getting hit by cars here! This isn't a suitable place for them to be crossing anymore.'
IDIOT SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE.
My daughter went to a Mexican fast-food joint and ordered a taco. She requested 'minimal lettuce.'
The person at the counter apologized, saying they only had iceberg lettuce.
While at the airport, checking in at the gate, an airport employee asked me, 'Has anyone put anything in your luggage without your knowledge?'
I responded, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'
He chuckled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'
The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with a co-worker of mine who had an intellectual disability. She asked if I knew what the beeping was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Taken aback, she exclaimed, 'What in the world are blind people doing driving?'
She happens to be a government employee...
When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a service, we were informed that the keys had been locked inside. We headed to the service department and found a mechanic working diligently to unlock the driver's side door.
As I observed from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered it was unlocked.
'Hey,' I called out to the technician, 'it's open!'
He chuckled and replied, 'I know. I already did that side.'
