    They Walk Among Us and Many Work Retail

    I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up $46.64 charge. I Gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave the money back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor. She became indignant and informed me she was Educated and knew what she was doing, and returned the money again. I gave her the Money back ... same scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64.

    I walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for a Grande Latte. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little chalkboard that said 'buy one-get one free.' 'They're already buy-one-get-one-free,' she said, 'so I guess they're both free' She Handed me my free lattes and I walked out the door.

    One day I was walking down the beach with some Friends when one of them shouted, 'Look at that dead bird!' Someone looked Up at the sky and said, 'Where'?

    T hey Wa lk Among Us!

    While looking at a house, my brother asked the real Estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, 'Does the sun rise in the north?' When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, 'Oh I don't keep up with all that stuff.'

    I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, 'The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.'He responded, 'Is that Eastern o r Pacific time?' Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, 'Uh, Pacific.'

    My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

    I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. 'Now,' she asked me, 'has your plane arrived yet?'

    Wanna really have some fun? When your total sale at walmart is something like $19.54, give the clerk a $20, wait till she's punched that into her register, then tell her you have the 4 cents. Wait and see how long it takes her to figure out you get 50 cents back.

    Gritsar, it isn't only Walmart, kids now don't need to know how to make change. The kids at McDonalds wig out when you hand them "extra" money after they have pushed the change button. And being the mean person that I am...I try to do it every time! [​IMG] The football snackbar was my duty for the last 3 years. We ran 4 open windows, each with a cash box (no register, no calculater, no paper and pen) I got to the point that I wouldn't have anyone under about 40 work the money because they couldn't add + subtract.

    What can you expect when they are allowed to bring their super duper calculators (my daughter's texas instrument one cost $140) to take their math tests!
