Well, just stumbled on this at another forum, and decided to share it with you guys. Since it doesn't quite exactly fit on one of the other threads (it's not exactly a joke and not copier-related) I made this new thread apptly named.

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's take-out window and I gave the girl a 5 note.. Our total was 4.20, so I also handed her a Twenty pence piece. She said, 'you gave me too much money.' I said, 'Yes I know, but that way you can just give me a pound back. 'She was puzzled and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he handed me back the 20 pence and said 'We're sorry but they could not do that kind of thing.'
The girl then proceeded to give me back 80 pence in change!
Do not confuse the staff at MacDonald's.

We had to have the garage door repaired. The GARADOR 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 GARADOR made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower. He shook his head and said, 'Madam, 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 Garador repair since. Happened in Moor Park , Nr Watford UK

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

Story from Potters Bar, Herts , UK

My daughter went to a local Kentucky Fried 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 Irish 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 stoplight on the corner buzzes 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 buzzer 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?!'
She is a Local County Councillor employee in Harrow, Middlesex , UK

When my husband and I arrived at Our Local Ford dealer to pick up our car, 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 driver's side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
'Hey,' I announced to the Fitter/Mechanic, 'its open!' His reply, 'I know.. I have already done that side.'
This was at Ford dealership in St Albans, Hertfordshire UK .

They walk among us, and the scary part is that they have the RIGHT TO VOTE and to REPRODUCE"

"I had one of those moments on Friday.

Best Buy calls me to tell me that my computer has been fixed & is "working"

...before, anyone gets mad at me for being a dick, realize that this is the 2nd computer, 3rd (main) issue & now close to a $1,000 that I've gone through in the past 3 months with them....the whole calling me on the phone to give me back a non-usable computer has just been the piece of hay that broke the camels back for me. BASTARDS!

BB: "Hi, we are calling you to tell you that your computer is fixed"
Me: "So, it's working now?"
BB: "Well...No"
Me: "I thought you just said that you fixed it & that's why you're calling"
BB: "We did fix it. But it needs an Operating System"
Me: "So if I pick it up right now, it won't work?"
BB: "No, it's not going to work"
Me: "...alright. Let's start from the beginning. 'Hi, why are you calling?"
BB: "We are calling to tell you that we have fixed the problems with your computer & it's ready to be picked up"
Me (getting irrate): "Good! so, I can pick it up & start surfing for porn right away?"
BB (now getting irrate as well): "You're computer isn't working..."
Me (now even more irrate): "Well it is under warranty, can you please fix it?"
BB: "We did"
Me: "Soooo, why ISN'T it fixed if you fixed it?
BB: "Well, we deleted your operating system"
Me: "That's fine. It's under warranty, so please fix it & call me back when I can actually USE my computer."
BB: "Well, it's not that big of an issue."
Me: "An Operating System isn't a big issue?"
BB: "Well, it is. We were saying that you can install it quickly; it's not a big deal"
Me, now PISSED as hell that they had my computer 2 weeks & want me to finish the job, ended the conversation"
