Are people REALLY this stupid? - Page 2

post #16 of 539
People really can be dumb. Today we went out for lunch for sisters b-day and i brought the cake I made for her, had it sitting in the center of the table. After we finish eating the waiter goes " I will bring the desert tray out and see if you like anything" I said well with this big cake, I really don't think we will be needing that and he was like duh, and still brought it out.

BTW Doug love your avatar.Calvin & Hobbs my fav. icon_smile.gif

I just had to jump on this bandwagon. How about when I was working at the prison and I was supervising a GED class. The assignment the inmates had was to write an essay on why it was important to get their GED. After about ten minutes, an inmate raised his hand and asked as earnestly as he knew how, "Mrs. Sellers, how do you spell GED"?

Another one, I was supervising in the kitchen at the prison, and the inmates asked me what kind of meat was in the soup. I told them it was beef. One said, "we know it's beef stew, but what kind of beef?" I said, "it's BEEF." He said, "I know Mrs. Sellers, but what kind of beef? You know, its it whale, or horse, or cow, or what?"

Yes, there really are dense people in this world. I worked in the prison system for 10 years. If you want to hear more, just PM me, lol.

cassandracakes, I can't wait for your best selling book on this topic to come out! I'll order my autographed copy now! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

When I was a kid, I remember the adults talking about this story: There was a big question concerning farming subsidies all over the news, and there was something about farmers wanting to strike or reduce their output or something (remember .... I was a kid). One of the news stations was doing a man-on-the-street interview and they asked a man (from a large.... LARGE ...... major city) what he thought and he said, "We don't need farmers anyway!" The reporter asked him, "Where would you get your milk from?" and the man looked at the reporter very astonished and said ......



and I'm not kidding........



"Why from the store of course!!"

Sad to day, in my experience, many of the teachers aren't much better!

(...and that includes both K-12 and university/graduate school level.)

ROTFLMAO at all these stories--especially the ones about precutting the cakes. icon_eek.gif I can't believe anyone could be that stupid. Never mind. Yes, I could believe it. icon_lol.gif

I watched "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" this week and could not believe some of the questions that were missed. icon_surprised.gif The one about how many teaspoons you would have if you had five tablespoons seemed like a no brainer to me. Wrong. I have asked everyone I have come in contact with since Thursday night. My mom's best friend who is 89 was the only one who gave me the correct answer. icon_eek.gif I could not believe that grown women who cook supper every night would not know the answer to that, including my 31 year old daughter who bakes and decorates cakes!!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I just thought of another one....

An inmate was talking about how his daughter was in the eleventh grade. I said "so, she's a junior?" He said, "how can she be a junior if she's a girl? She's not named after me!"

Another one..........

My aunt called the whole family a couple of months ago and told us she had just gotten some gas for 97 cents a gallon. Nobody could believe it, so I called her back and asked if she was SURE it was only 97 cents. She said "Girl, I swear. The little yellow sticker on the tank said '97'". I died laughing before I explained that the yellow sticker was the grade of gas and not the price.

I could go on and on...

These are all great!

I do have to admit that I wish the Bic lighter and the raw chicken comment could have been spoken and not just a thought!

Hate to tell one on my own daughter, but she made the playing card cookies in my photos (I do all the cakes, she does most of the cookies). She said the hardest one was making the spade. I asked if she had any problems with the other emblems....the hearts, diamonds, clubs? She said, "Nope! Just that stupid spade!" I said, "You DO realize that a spade is just an upside down heart with a line at the bottom, right?" THere was a big silence and she says, "Oh NOW you tell me!"

Yep.

I feel like shooting myself when I watch the Tonight Show and on Jay Walking they ask SIMPLE questions regarding history, science or mathematics and the people get them wrong. . .
