Yep, they walk among us.

I was at the checkout of a local Walmart.

The cashier rang up $46.64 charges.

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 she returned the money again.

I gave her the money back – same scenario!

I departed the store with the $46.64.

They Walk Among Us! …

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.

They Walk Among Us! …

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 asked, “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 all that stuff.”

They Walk Among Us!! …

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 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.

They Walk Among Us! …

My friends and I went out to buy beer and noticed

that the cases were discounted 10%.

Since it was a big party, we bought two cases.

The cashier multiplied two times 10%

and gave us a 20% discount.

They Walk Among Us! …

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?”

So I replied, “No Ma’am, The Pilot told us we’re circling the airport, 3rd in line to land” …

They Walk Among Us! …

While working at a pizza place, 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 four pieces or six…

He thought about it for some time before responding.

"Just cut it into four pieces.

I don’t think I’m hungry enough to eat six pieces."

Yep, they walk among us… bless their hearts !


Sad, but very much the truth.


I really don’t think it sad anymore, I think the stupidity now works in my favor. I don’t question anything when it’s in my favor!
What do they teach us here? At all costs ( no pun ) AVOID conflict!
They want to hand me extra change, I’m very cordial, smile, take it and go! Cashier pays for their stupidity at the end of the day, I call it on the job training! Will I make it a point to use the same cashier, as long as they are still employed, ABSOLUTELY!

Buy one get one, that worked once, if you tried to give her two coupons, they would have had a meltdown! I actually do save a lot of coupons for services, and do try to pay for the services with the coupons!
I have a $1.00 off coupon and I have five, that’s 5 bucks in my favor.
Just explain to the small brain, that I’m using them separately, they are not being combined, on a $10.00 item, here’s a $1.00, now the item is $9.00, here’s another coupon for another dollar, now the item is $8.00 and so on. Gotta love the new education system!
Really did accomplish this on a $5,000. TV got the price down to $4,000 within a week! Was completely legit! I’m smarter than they are!

I’m completely in favor of dumbing down the country!

My wife and I had an incident at a Barney’s coffee, I guess, now Starbucks.
We wanted a mix of two coffees, 1/2 pound of one and 1/2 pound of another, mixed in one bag. We were told that can’t be done because they only sell coffee by the pound! OK Let’s try this again!
I tried to explain it twice, I was younger then, but I could smell the smoke coming from her small undeveloped brain!

Yes both coffees cost exactly the same, only the names were changed to protect the idiot!

I don’t do idiots any more. I AVOID and take what they think is mine, who am I to argue with the “educated”? I’m a deplorable that needs reprogramming!


True story… we bought several pairs of jeans for my daughter when fitting rooms were still closed at Wal Mart because of Covid.

My wife returned the jeans. We returned four pair, but there were only three pair on the receipt. Apparently they missed a pair when we bought them. My wife explained that if we only paid for three pair, we should not get anything back for the fourth pair. They insisted that they couldn’t put the fourth park back on our credit card since it wasn’t on the receipt so they had to give us cash. :person_shrugging:t2:

We tried.


It happens to the best of us.

It does.

Some of the best people I know or have known might have said or done something like that at some point.

It’s okay


These same people also become Managers and make signage!


Your twisted Leo…

(I like that!) :rofl:


For example, if I wanted to give people a hard time when I know exactly what they are saying and it’s okay…I think you mean to say you’re as opposed to your


And we’re worried about AI.


Years ago when computers on every desk were a relatively new thing one of the secretaries in the company called the tech support line saying that she had tried everything she knew how to do and she could not get her “computer” to restart.

Tech guy had her do a few things to no avail so as a last resort he asked her to go under her desk and make sure her computer was plugged in.

She said she couldn’t do it because the lights were shut down and it was too dark under her desk. Tech asked why all the lights were out and she said the building was having a power failure……

The Tech asked her if she had kept the boxes the computer came in and she said yes. He then asked her to pack up the computer and have it sent back. She then asked what was wrong with the computer to which the Tech replied,

“Your computer is fine, the problem is you are too stupid to have one…”


I was grey pretty young, mid 30s. A local gas station was offering a senior discount. The teenaged attendant asked if id like the discount. I said no thanks, I’m not qualified.
A week later, same thing. And it happened a third time. Same dumb kid.
The fourth time I said yes. Sure I’ll take the discount. He said " I’ll need to see your drivers license to check your age " .
Told him bullshit, no way , go get your dumbass manager.
Got the discount and found a new gas station


I was in the drive-thru at Polo Loco one day and they had an automated voice on the speaker to take my order, I ordered, paid at the window, looked at my receipt and their was a senior discount applied. I’m not sure if that was profiling. :rofl:


I thought you were going to say he needed to make up for all the times you said no and got the gas half off. Might need to try it.


After my Dad died, I called social security to cancel the automatic withdrawals from his bank account for his Medicare Part B premiums. I literally spent more than 8 hours on the phone and talking with government employees who could not figure out how to cancel the withdrawals. The best one was when I called a DC help line.

“I need to cancel the automatic withdrawals from my Dad’s bank account as he has died.”
"Yes, I can see from our records that he has died. But, we can’t cancel the withdrawals without his permission. Can you put your Dad on the line?

I thought, “How did this person get and keep a job, much less a government job?”


After 8 hours I would have told them “I will have him call you”.


That’s proof, we’re not going to make it!


I was stunned by the incompetence. I made one trip to the local SS office and after being passed between the Medicare bureaucrats and the Social Security people, I sat across the table from one Social Security “expert” who looked me square in the eye and said “We’ll have to talk with your father first.”

I left and went to my congressman’s office for resolution.


When my grandmother passed away the funeral home she had her arrangements with took care of notifying SS.


My Dad’s funeral home also notified SS and Medicare. That’s what they do when getting a death certificate. What does not happen automatically is any automatic bank withdrawals for Medicare Part B premiums that are usually taken from Social Security monthly payouts. My Dad was a fireman, which meant that he did not receive SS and had to pay for Medicare Part B.

The lesson I learned is that Medicare and Social Security is staffed by morons who can’t get jobs at McDonalds. Our tax dollars at work. That should be some solace if you’re worried about government coming after your firearms if/when Congress gets around to outlawing them. They won’t be competent enough to find the people with illegal firearms.


I am sorry for the loss of your Father my Brother.
