Yeah, how...

This came in the mail...


How do these people survive?


Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 'You don't?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets (Unbelievable but sadly true.)


I was checking out at the local Walmart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?' I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.' She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened.


A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' (keep shuddering!!)


I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked. She replied, 'I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....' PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!!


Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies. Brunette, by the way!! SIX A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......' Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency!'

Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!!

I have my own addition to the list:


I bought this 'drain clearer' from Daiso the other day. Instructions to use were to pour 3 tablespoons of the product (in powder form) into the sink, then pour 2 cups of water (40 degrees celcius) into the sink, then then let the normal tap water run for a while. [Instructions were all in Japanese, but since i had a 7 days trip to Japan in May, it's piece a cake for me to figure it all out]. [oklah, got pictures!]

So step 1 done, step 2 was the tricky part. I got no thermometer, but i was thinking, boiling water is at 100 degrees, so it should be slightly (40) colder than the temperature of water half boiled (50). I dunno how exactly to know that lar, but somehow i had faith in my fingers' natural sensory powers...haha, aiya, anyway, cincai larrr...

So, i poured the boiling water into 2 cups, then I ....waited....for the water to cool down....wait and wait and feel the temperature and wait and wait.....(if at this stage you think i was on the right track, then i worry for you as well)...Heck, suddenly the bulb was lighted! CANT I JUST ADD SOME COLD WATER INIT, INSTEAD OF WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING!

Real brilliant, who can top that?......
