I was at the checkout of a local Walmart.
The cashier rang up $46.64 charges.
I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64.
I gave the money back to her and told her that she
had made a mistake in MY favor.
She became indignant and informed me she was educated and
knew what she was doing, and she returned the money again.
I gave her the money back -- same scenario!
I departed the store with the $46.64.

They Walk Among Us! .....

I walked into a Starbucks with a
buy-one-get-one-free coupon for a Grande Latte.
I handed it to the girl and she looked over at
a little chalkboard that said 'buy one-get one free.'
"They're already buy-one- get-one-free," she said,
"so I guess they're both free."
She handed me my free lattes, and I walked out the door.

They Walk Among Us! .....

One day I was walking down the beach with some friends,
when one of them shouted, "Look at that dead bird!"
Someone looked up at the sky and asked, "Where?"

They Walk Among Us! .....

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent
which direction was north; because, he explained,
he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning.
She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"
When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East,
and has for sometime; she shook her head and said,
"Oh I don't keep up with all that stuff."

They Walk Among Us!! .....

I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center.
One day I got a call from an individual who asked
what hours the call center was open.
I told him, "The number you dialed is open
24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?"
Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific."

They Walk Among Us! .....

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car
designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped.
She keeps it in the trunk.

They Walk Among Us! .....

My friends and I went out to buy beer and noticed
that the cases were discounted 10%.
Since it was a big party, we bought two cases.
The cashier multiplied two times 10%
and gave us a 20% discount.

They Walk Among Us! .....

I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area,
so I went to the lost luggage office and
told the woman there that my bags never showed up.
She smiled and told me not to worry because
she was a trained professional, and I was in good hands.
"Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?"
So I replied, "No Ma'am, The Pilot told us we're circling the airport, 3rd in line to land" .....

They Walk Among Us! .....

While working at a pizza place, I observed
a man ordering a small pizza to go.
He appeared to be alone, and the cook asked him
if he would like it cut into four pieces or six..
He thought about it for some time before responding.
"Just cut it into four pieces.
I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat six pieces."

Yep, they walk among us.... bless their hearts LOLConfusedLOLConfused

I want to meet those cashiers.LOLLOL

I would like to add to this. However, this is no joke, this really happened to me and my wife. We were shopping at a thrift store and there was a young couple in there with us. As we approach the cashier, she tells her boy friend, I found some onesies for the baby, they are ten cents each. He asks, "How many do you have? and she says I got ten of them. She asks him how much money he has and he replies $20.00. Then she complains that she saw a baby car seat for $16.00 and they really need it. They both whine, we don't have enough money for that. They keep on whinning and finally I enter the conversation and tell them that if that's all they have to buy, they will have enough money.
She says to me, "how do you know?, you can do that in your head" I assured them, finally saying if it runs over $20.00 I will pay the bill. So they check out and the cashier says "your total is $17.83, she turns back and says to me, "You must have a freakin computer for a brain.

Sadly we must remember, they don't teach math the way we learned it.  My granddaughter is a math whiz and she use to scream at her teachers for being so stupid. I would really like to take the idiots who changed our education system out behind the old barn with a hickory switch  and a twelve gauge.  It's no wonder why this country is in such a mess.

Well let me throw another one at ya. Also very true. After I retired, I took up teaching. I was subbing for a math teacher while she was away on vacation.
I had her class for two weeks, 6th grade.
It was early in the year and they were refreshing math to get ready for basic algebra. We were doing some compound figures in dividing and multiplying. I made the comment [as some were struggling already] that you can interchange the digits, between division and multiplication to verify your answer. and you can do the same with adding and subtraction. They were amazed and a few of them got excited and really into it. About two days after she returned, she confronted me in the hallway, and said she was going to try and get me fired and that I should never ever teach any child such stupid "OLD" math. And then added, I would never sub for her again. Well no big deal, History and English are my strong suits anyway.
