IDIOT SIGHTING#1

My daughter and I went through the Mc Donald 's take-out window and I gave the girl a 5 note. Our total was 4.20, so I also handed her a twenty pence piece.

She said, 'you gave me too much money.' I said, 'Yes I know, but that way you can just give me a pound back.' She was puzzled and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the 20 pence and said 'We're sorry but we could not do that kind of thing.' The girl then proceeded to give me back 80 pence in change!

Do not confuse the staff at MacD's.


IDIOT SIGHTING #2

We had to have the garage door repaired. The GARADOR 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 GARADOR made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.

He shook his head and said, 'Madam, 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 Garador repair since.

Happened in Moor Park , Nr Watford UK


IDIOT SIGHTING #3

I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbour call the local town council office to request the removal of the "DEER CROSSING" sign on our road. She said the reason was: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out here... don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.

Story from Potters Bar, Herts , UK


IDIOT SIGHTING #4

My daughter went to a local Kentucky Fried 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 South Oxhey Herts , UK .


IDIOT SIGHTING #5

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an Irish 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 Luton Airport .... UK

IDIOT SIGHTING #6

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 Local County Councillor, Harrow, Middlesex,UK

IDIOT SIGHTING #7

When my husband and I arrived at Our Local Ford dealer 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 Fitter/Mechanic, 'its open!' His reply: 'I know. I have already done that side.'

This was at Ford dealership in St Albans, Hertfordshire UK .



IDIOT SIGHTING #8

A coach party were out for the day, stopped off at a refreshment halt in Hertfordshire and queued up for tea and coffee. One group asked for "Six decaffeinated please." To which the girl replied: "Sorry, we only do coffee!"

Very good, minx Smile

Is it just coincidental that all these tales seem to come from the South of England, around London?

I knew Harrow had gone downhill, but Moor Park? Surprised Thirty years ago they'd have just bought a new garage. Or moved house.
