Uh! Say what?

My husband and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.
She said, 'you gave me too much money.'
I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.'
She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we donít do that kind of thing.'
The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at MacD's.


We had to have the garage door repaired.
The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'
We haven't used that repairman since...


I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.
The reason: 'Too many deers are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'


My daughter went to a Mexican fast food and ordered a taco.
She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.


I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'
To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'
He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'


The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of mine.
She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, 'what on earth are blind people doing driving?!'


When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a
service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driverís side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
ĎHey,' I announced to the technician, 'its open!'
His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.'

The sad thing is I was in a store yesterday, the total came to $9.24, I paid with a 5, four 1's and a quarter, and the girl at the register had a hard time figuring out how to ring it up and give me change because I was paying with cash and not a credit card.


This is a true story, though it may have been day before yesterday

Unfortunately, this is not a new issue ; in 1963 my father put me in charge of training new part time staff at the family service station . My first training session for prospective staff ; running the pumps; was making correct change ( long before the advent of electronic cash registers ) and if in fifteen mins of training they didn't have it down pat ; they didn't get hired .
I had them trained to tell the customer what their change would be ; when they were handed cash at the pump , then count out the change , to the customer , when they brought it back from the till.
None of this ; Here's your change BS !

One in four , didn't make the cut !
