    A little humor for Cyclone fans

    IDIOT SIGHTING 1:

    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. He said,
    'NO, it's not.' Four is larger than two..'

    We haven't used Sears repair since.

    IDIOT SIGHTING 2:

    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 $1 and 75 cents in change..

    Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

    IDIOT SIGHTING 3:

    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.'
    Kingman , KS .

    IDIOT SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE 4:

    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 ice burg lettuce.

    IDIOT SIGHTING 5:

    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.

    IDIOT SIGHTING 6:

    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

    IDIOT SIGHTING 7:

    At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker. She 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. W e all just looked at each
    other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.
    This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

    IDIOT SIGHTING 8:

    I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into
    itself and for the sake of her life, couldn't understand why her
    system would not turn on.
    A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriff s office, no less.

    IDIOT SIGHTING 9:

    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 driver 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 Canton, MS
    STAY ALERT!

    IDIOT SIGHTING 10:

    I ordered a plain double cheese burger at McD's and the clerk asked if I wanted cheese on it.

    They walk among us... and the scary part is
    that they VOTE and they REPRODUCE

    So the assumption is that these are all University of Iowa graduates?

    At first I noticed that you are NebrClone and assumed it stood for Nebraska. I thought this all happened in Nebraska and I shook my head yes while reading.

    Re: A little humor for Cyclone fans

    I was at the airport in Baltimore Sunday and stopped by Wendy's to get something to eat before my flight. I wanted a sandwich and a pop, but I can never keep straight which restaurants have which drink sizes (I wanted a ~20oz drink). I asked her what the drink sizes were and she responded "We have small, medium, and large."

    Really? Don't you remember not to long ago the lady that called 911 because she was locked inside her car and couldn't get out? Sadly I believe all of those are possible.

    Not really, I could see them all happening.

    A colleague of mine was having trouble with a window air conditioner unit. It was a brand new unit, but it wasn't cooling off his house. I told him he needed to mount it in the window instead of the middle of his living room.

    I also helped someone who has having computer problems once, she had the switch turned off to the power strip.

    Re: A little humor for Cyclone fans

    The zinger for me

    At Iowa State I had a job locking and unlocking buildings on campus. One day I get a call from one of my employees saying she needs help. I get over there and she had the key to the building stuck in between the door and the jam and the door was locked. That door was lock, the door right beside it she hadn't locked yet.

    I had a user call me one morning and tell me they couldn't get into an application. I could get into it just fine. After 30-60 minutes of digging, I couldn't find a logical reason why they could not get into the application. When I called back they asked me if it might have something to do with the fact that the power was out and their PC was powered down.

    So yeah, I can believe anything.

He said thanks leaves and turns the car around and takes off. About 30 minutes later same guy comes in and has a puzzled look on his face...he asked me why he did not tell me it was next door. I said did you not see the flashing lake caberet sign when you pulled in facing that sign? He left ******... oh well

    #2, the counting change one happened to me at a Taco Bell in DSM. I just shook my head. I assumed the gal was a Saydel graduate and laughed all the way home.
