Wanna Feel Smart?

Wanna feel extra smart today? Look at these ditzy doings:

When the bill at a drive-in burger shop came to $4.25, Aunt Minnie handed the young cashier a five-dollar bill and a quarter. The teenager gazed at the money for a moment, then said, “You gave me too much.”

“I know,” Aunt Minnie replied, “this way you give me an even dollar in change.”

The cashier left the window to find her manager, who returned with the money. “I’m sorry ma’am; we can’t do this type of thing,” he said.

Aunt Minnie shrugged as the teenager handed her $1.75 in change.

(The above photo is not Aunt Minnie. But I couldn't resist this darling pooch in the driver's seat!)

A rural newspaper received this letter from a concerned reader: “I think the Township needs to move the Deer Crossing sign out on Highway 14. Too many deer are getting hit and killed there. They need a safer place to cross.”

When a lady went to the mechanic’s shop to pick up her car after a repair, the mechanic apologized for locking the keys inside. He was busy finagling to get the door on the driver’s side open. The lady walked around to the passenger side. Finding it unlocked, she opened the door, then said to the mechanic, “Hey, this side is unlocked.”

“I know,” he replied, “I already managed to get that side opened.”

And to think, these people vote…

Happy, Humorous Day,

  3. Hi Jen -

  4. Cute post! I'm reading this and my hubby is sitting on the other side of the couch from me. He just turned to me and said, "I like it when you laugh like that." :) Mission accomplished.

  5. You have NO idea how many times my hubby gets frustrated trying to make change with people who can't understand the concept Aunt Minnie was trying to convey about her change.
    Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

    PS: Please stop by my friend, Mary's blog and pray for her. She is facing some difficult situations, right now.
