We all have those  days from time to time… at least I know I do. I got an email today that made me feel so much better about the ability of my brain to think and reason at times. Oh such much better!

And now I will share it with you in the hopes that  you too can feel a bit better when having one of those days.

“They Walk Among Us”

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 she had made a mistake in MY favor. She became indignant and informed 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 the little chalkboard that said “buy-one-get-one-free”. She said “They’re already buy-one-get-one-free so I guess they’re both free”. She handed me my free lattes and I walked out the door.

One day I 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?”

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 some time, 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 or Pacific time?” Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, “Uh, Pacific.”

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

My firends and I were on a beer run and noticed the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there 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. The cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 or 6 pieces. 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.”

Feel better now? I sure do!


Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.
