How Though 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 half a dozen nuggets, but I can order six?” “That’s right.” So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.

I was checking out at the local Wal Mart 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 scanned all of my items, she picked up the “divider,” looking it all over 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.” She said “OK,” and I paid her the things and left. She had no clue to what had just happened.

A lady at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so was using the ATM “thingy.”

I recently saw a distraught young lady beside her car. “Do you need some help?” I asked. “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 would have a battery to fit this?” “Hmmm. I dunno. 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.”

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 copier machine paper,” the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five blank paper copies.
