    Default Stupid people should have to wear signs that just say, "I'm Stupid"

    That way you wouldn't rely on them, would you? You wouldn't ask them anything. It would be like, "Excuse me...oops, never mind. I didn't see your sign." ...

    It's like before my wife and I moved. Our house was full of boxes and there was a Moving Truck in our driveway. My neighbour comes over and says, "Hey, you moving?" "Nope. We just pack our stuff up once or twice a week to see how many boxes it takes. Here's your sign."

    A couple of months ago I went fishing with a buddy of mine, we pulled his boat into the dock, I lifted up this big 'ol stringer of bass and this idiot on the dock goes, "Hey, y'all catch all them fish?" "Nope - Talked 'em into giving up. Here's your sign."

    I was watching one of those animal shows on the Discovery Channel. There was a guy inventing a shark bite suit. And there's only one way to test it. "all right Jimmy, you got that shark suit on, it looks good...They want you to jump into this pool of sharks, and you tell us if it hurts when they bite you." "Well, all right, but hold my sign. I don't wanna lose it."

    Last time I had a flat tire, I pulled my truck into one of those side-of-the-road gas stations. The attendant walks out, looks at my truck, looks at me, and I SWEAR he said, "Tire go flat?" I couldn't resist. I said, "Nope. I was driving around and those other three just swelled right up on me. Here's your sign."

    We were trying to sell our car about a year ago. A guy came over to the house and drove the car around for about 45 minutes. We get back to the house, he gets out of the car, reaches down and grabs the exhaust pipe, then goes, "Darn that's hot!" See? If he'd been wearing his sign, I could have stopped him.

    I learned to drive an 18 wheeler in my days of adventure. Wouldn't ya know I misjudged the height of a bridge. The truck got stuck and I couldn't get it out no matter how I tried. I radioed in for help and eventually a local cop shows up to take the report. He went through his basic questioning. No problem. I thought for sure he was clear of needing a sign... until he says "So..is your truck stuck?" I couldn't help myself! I looked at him, looked back at the rig, then back to him and said, "No I'm delivering a bridge
    ...Here's your sign!".

    Some more stupid people…

    A medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology at the poison control center. Today, this woman called in very upset because she caught her little daughter eating ants. hHe quickly reassured her that the ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter into the hospital. She calmed down and at the end of the conversation happened to mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat in order to kill the ants. He told her that she better bring her daughter into the emergency room right away.

    Here's your sign, lady. Wear it with pride.

    Early this year, some Boeing employees on the airfield decided to steal a life raft from one of the 747s. They were successful in getting it out of the plane and home. Shortly after they took it for a float on the river, they noticed a Coast Guard helicopter coming towards them. It turned out that the chopper was homing in on the emergency locator beacon that activated when the raft was inflated. They are no longer employed at Boeing.

    Here's your sign, guys. Don't get it wet; the paint might run.

    A man, wanting to rob a downtown Bank of America, walked into the branch and wrote, "this iz a stikkup. Put all your muny in this bag." While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, he began to worry that someone had seen him write the note and might call the police before he reached the teller's window. So he left the Bank of America and crossed the street to the Wells Fargo Bank. After waiting a few minutes in line, he handed his note to the Wells Fargo teller. She read it and, surmising from his spelling errors that he wasn't the brightest light in the harbor, told him that she could not accept his stickup note because it was written on a Bank of America deposit slip and that he would either have to fill out a Wells Fargo deposit slip or go back to Bank of America. Looking somewhat defeated, the man said, "OK" and left. He was arrested a few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at Bank of America.


    Don't bother with this guy's sign. He probably couldn't read it anyway.

    A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received in the mail a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car. Instead of payment, he sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several days later, he received a letter from the police that contained another picture, this time of handcuffs. He immediately mailed in his $40.


    Smartbutt. But you still get a sign

    A guy walked into a little corner store with a shotgun and demanded all of the cash from the cash drawer. After the cashier put the cash in a bag, the robber saw a bottle of Scotch that he wanted behind the counter on the shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but the cashier refused and said, "Because I don't believe you are over 21." The robber said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him because she didn't believe him. At this point, the robber took his driver's license out of his wallet and gave it to the clerk. The clerk looked it over and agreed that the man was in fact over 21 and she put the Scotch in the bag. The robber then ran from the store with his loot. The cashier promptly called the police and gave the name and address of the robber that he got off the license. They arrested the robber two hours later.


    This guy definitely needs a sign.

    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 traffic light on the corner buzzes when its 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?!"

    At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear co-worker. She was leaving the company due to "downsizing." Our manager commented cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this more often" Not another word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that rabbit-in-the-headlights stare.

    This at goodbye luncheon at ANZ pre recent announcement...

    I work with an individual who plugged her power cord back into itself and for the sake of her own life, couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.

    Turning up at car dealership to pick up our vehicle, 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 drivers 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 technician, "its open!"


    His reply, "I know - I already got that side."

    STAY ALERT!

    They walk among us ... and they REPRODUCE !!!

    Default My Sign

    And Josko I have been wearing my sign, and appreciate the time it must have taken to construct and post it. Have met a lot of nice people as it is a great conversation starter.

    I write because I thought of you the other day. Do you live in Ponsonby? A friend of mine found a parrot in the road there last week, and all it could say was "You strange bastard!" I wonder...could this parrot be yours?

    Glad the sign was useful, no I don't live in Ponsoby, but how do you know the parrot is a local parrot it might have been lost in a different suburb, hence the surprise to be around Ponsoby people.
