Where's that brick.......

« on: March 03, 2007, 08:17:09 AM »

I attempt to start a topic, another sign of the approaching apocalypse.....

At work there's a guy who I would generously call unaware and more accurately call dumber than an old piece of toast. Let's call him "Joe". About once a week Joe manages to say or do something that makes me want to leave the room before I laugh in his face. He did another one last night.

Some coworkers were discussing the country version of American Idol called Nashville Star that airs on cable. The girl who won the latest version, and her brother who came in second, are from my town, so this is big news around here. Joe happened to mention that he was glad she won since she and her brother were brought up right and seemed like decent people. Sounded fine unless you knew more about Joe like those of us who have worked with him do, a while back Joe managed to get arrested and is apparently awaiting trial for being a mid-level prescription pill pusher. Even the people who like him say that he's probably guilty and in serious trouble when he goes to court.

Last week Joe was talking with some people about how he couldn't sleep when he got home from work, he was drinking a Red Bull at the time. this conversation with "Steve" followed:

Steve: "How many of those you drink a day?"
Joe: "About three."
Steve: "Maybe it's the caffeine?"
Joe: "Not enough?"
Steve: "No, too much."
Joe: "Oh."

He was dead serious.

How about you all, any good stories of people you know IRL who consistently just don't get it? Not just stories of airheadiness, but when the irony of things just doesn't register with them. It may be a little cruel, all humor has a victim as they say, but after the week I've had I could use some laughs.

I'll tell ya stupid...I had to go to court one day on a public intoxication charge a few years conditions of bail was No alchol until I had a couple ...ok...a pint of whiskey before court to mellow my nerves. The judge gave me a contempt of court charge for showing up drunk.

  Oh yeah,I had been arrested,(dig this) for passing out on the Van Buern County Courthouse steps during the Grape and Wine festival. Now if that ain't ironic,I dunno what is!  Drink

I have the "honor" of training a new employee at work. I'm really trying to cut him some slack since he has never done this type of work before, but I get annoyed at some moments of flagrant stupidity, like when I tell him repeatedly that he needs to monitor something rather than walk off for a quick smoke, but time and again he leaves things unattended.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

I was at the firing range for a class (Basic Firearms, dealt mainly with hand guns) and out of the corner of my eye I noticed the guy to my left was doing something odd, put my 38 down and turned to see. He had a 38 and was holding it pointed up beside his head, for no apparent reason he fired it. It was an outdoor range, so God only knows where the slug went, then he turned to me and asked if I could hear a ringing sound, got mad when I started to laugh, and then couldn't understand why he was dropped from the class or why the instructor called him one dumb son of a b**** Buggedout

EDIT: I left out the fact that this genius also left his hearing protection on the bench.

Science claims that hydrogen, because there is so much of it, is the building block of the universe, I dispute this, there is plenty more stupidity, and that is the building block of the universe.  Frank Zappa

I worked in a bookstore for a year... I can tell you, that's an endless supply of stupidity.

If you have ever seen the sketch show "Little britian", i can tell tell you, the bit about the customer who always wants some very specific products, is disturbingly close to reality.

Also, me and a none to bright girlfriend i had, wen't hiking in Norway (in springtime). We had been eating a lot of these berries on the way, and i noticed her lips had turned completely blue from it. When i told her this, she replied, "oh, i must be freezing then", and she proceeded to put on a big sweater....
(Yeah, she was blonde)

Thanks, this is what I needed. Keep posting them if you got them.

DENNIS, that's funny, but damn scary how close to tragedy it was. People can be really stupid when handling guns. I had a neighbor, one of the people I mentioned in another topic who handed me a loaded .45 out of the blue like he was saying hello to show off his new gun. He kept a loaded .32 automatic tucked in his couch and liked take it out and jack a round into the slide all the time. He had done this so often his pet cat would run to the farthest point in the apartment to get away from him. He would do this to "entertain" guests like myself.

Getting back from hijacking my own topic, I went sailing for my senior high spring break trip, one day we tied up beside this fantstic little restaurant outside Sarasota, FL. We ate in three groups, my group stayed so long we ate two meals back to back. Our waitress was great, deserved and earned a big tip. Most of us kicked in, one guy didn't, someone else mentioned it and said we owed her some more money (we did for the job she did and it was a big bill for some awesome cheap food). So we kick in some more. A guy on the trip who sat elsewhere asked what we were doing, we explained our bill was over a $100 and our waitress earned a big tip for all her hard work. He misheard (not the sharpest knife to begin with, and a bad tipper from what other said anyway) and replied, "Gaw, I ain't never seen a waitress worth a hundred dollars!"

I'm not sure if this story goes with this topic but here goes.
When I was in my teens I used to work for a place called Zody's (it's like Target), in the undergarment section. I came in to work one day and where they had the bras was a total mess. Each size and style were supposed to be in their own little compartment, instead it was just one big mountain, couldn't even see the compartments. I started putting them all where they were supposed to go, getting more mad as time went by. Pretty soon these two women came over and were picking up the bras and just throwing them, starting a new mountain, even though they could see me straightening them up. Finally one of them asked me if we had any 53E bras. I can't believe I said this, but I was crazed, I told them very calmly to head over to the sporting goods dept., near the tents. I couldn't believe it but they said "Thank you" and took off towards the sporting goods dept. Buggedout  Smile
