4) IDIOT 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 when 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

Can anyone really be that lame??

People are generally lame. I was interviewing for a job with a technology company and the company president related the following story. . .

While running a software training, the presenter gave the instructions to "click anywhere on the screen with the mouse."

One of the training participants literally picked up the mouse, pressed it against the monitor screen, and clicked. :-/

Another guy who was working in a PC tech support position got a call about an unresponsive computer that would not power up. The technician started the troubleshooting process with her and didn't get to far, . . . it wouldn't power up. He had her check to make sure it was plugged in, etc. Satisfied that the issue might warrant a return authorization, he asked her to read the serial number off the unit.

"I can't"

"Why not"

"There are no lights because the power is out"

"Oh, I see what the problem is. Ma'am, please box the computer up and send it back."

"Is it broken?"

"No, you are too f@#k!ng stupid to own a computer"
;-D

Not a word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer in the headlights stare. This was a bunch at Texas Instruments.


This is the kind of stuff that make Dilbert so funny! :-b


Dilbert isn't funny.


I'll take a stab at this and guess you don't work in the cubicle community...


yeah, if you work in an office setting, especially as an engineer, it's super funny becasue i've actually had alot of similar experiences

Well when I was getting ready for my senoir prom, I cvalled the resteraunt to make our reservation. To make sure I brought enough money with me, I asked the girl from the resteraunt prices of meals, desserts and stuff. Before I hung up I asked if the gratuity was included?

she told me no drinks cost extra.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

You know that s*!t probably happened, too! I'm never surprised at how stupid some people can be. Anyways, it is a good story.

The first story was actually recounted to me by the president of the company during an interview. It's possible that he just used it 'cause it was a good line, etc.
