Are they for real? Oh Lord help us!

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 don’t do that kind of thing.' The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at McDonald'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?!'
She is a government employee.....

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 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 technician, 'its open!'
His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.'

"And there's your sign." That McDonald's one is new and quite surprised that the manager didn't even know how to make change properly. I too tend to do that to make it easier on the cashier especially when they're short on bills and change.
This is the second deer crossing complaint I've seen and with a different reason. The first was a request to move the deer crossing sign to another location where it's safer for the deer to cross. No coherent comment for the car dealership.
I haven't giggled this much since that posting about a firefighter test where the test giver asked what steps to take in case of a fire. Needless to say it wasn't a step-by-step process but large steps were taken.

Those are really funny. Thanks for sharing. I told my doctor’s office to call in a prescription to Walmart. She called it into Krogers. Reply

I was talking to someone about my Great Grandmother who grew up in the country.She rode horses without a saddle.Probably because her family were too poor to afford saddles.The term for this is bareback because since there isn’t a saddle on the horse’s back the horses’s back is bare.Well,the lady I was talking to just stared at me and a few seconds later walked out of the room.Then it dawned on me she must have thought I meant that my Great Grandmother wasn’t wearing any clothing when she went horseback riding!I thought that I was using a common phrase.

We did the same thing as you did at McDonald's and the cashier didn't know how to handle it and had to get the manager. We told the cashier how much we are supposed to get back two or three times. I don't know why they put people on the cash register that doesn't know what they are doing. Reply
