Some Friday morning humor, courtesy of my Brudir’
We had to have the garage door repaired. The Sears
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 Sears made at that time a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, “Lady, you need a 1/4 horsepower.”
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4. He said, “NO, it’s not.”
Four is larger than two”. We haven’t used Sears repair since.
I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new
neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the
removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: “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.”

My daughter went to a l ocal Taco Bell 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 stoplight on the corner buzzes when it’s safe to cross the street. I
was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker 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 deer-in-the-headlights stare.
This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership 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
technician, “it’s open!” His reply, “I know. I already got that side.”
This was at the Ford dealership in Canton, Mississippi !
STAY ALERT! They walk among us… and they can breed !!!
