They Walk Among Us

It's funny.  Laugh. 4

One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when someone shouted...."Look at that dead bird!" Someone looked up at the sky and said..."where???"

They Walk 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 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 or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific."

They Walk Among Us!!!

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving".

I told the girl at the steakhouse register that I wanted the half pound sirloin. She informed me they only had an 8 ounce sirloin. Not wanting to make a scene, I told her I would take the 8 ounce steak instead of the half-pound

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?"

While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before responding. "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.

Sadly they "WALK AMONG US" and also reproduce!!!

You should have asked her to knock something off the price or give you something for free because they didn't have what you wanted. :-)

Stop right there. That's enough. Given the recent housing run, there have been people flocking to real-estate to make big bucks with no effort. This brings in a lot of mouth breathers (just like the tech bubble did for coding jobs). I've seen a lot of bad agents, from people with no common sense, people who were rude, and people who gave their clients horrible advice like "Oh, You don't need Mortgage insurance. it'll save you like two hundred bucks! Sure, you could lose your house if the title is clouded, but what are the chances?!"

When I worked for telephone directory services, I became totally convinced that the half of the population that has less-than-average intelligence, has a lot less than average intelligence. Seriously, people say and do the stupidest thing all the time. After working there I have never been able to find 'humorous crank calls' the least bit funny. Oh, ha ha ha, that's so funny; who would say/ask/demand a silly thing like that?! Every second bloody customer/client that's who!

Talking of directory services, earlier in the week my boss sent out e-mail Christmas cards, then e-mailed me about the addresses which bounced. In one case, I checked: he had the right address for the woman in question, but the mail server on the far end wasn't playing. He asked me to contact her to check the address; when I pointed out all I had was the non-functioning e-mail address, he said to phone her - difficult, without knowing her number or even which country she's in...
