It does happens........
« on: April 17, 2013, 12:15 AM »
Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets.
I asked for a half dozen nuggets.
'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the
... teenager at the counter.
'You don't?' I replied.
'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply.
'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'
'That's right.'
So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets
(Unbelievable but sadly true...)
(Must have been the same one I asked for sweetener,
and she said they didn't have any, only Splenda and sugar.)

I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed.
After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the
'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it.
Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?'
I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.'
She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left.
She had no clue to what had just happened.

( But the lady behind me had a big smirk on her face as I left)

Well, people are taught not to think or have an opinion. They can't do things by themselves. Be it look at a map, park a car, additions/substractions, ...
Television is sooooo good ! Don' t you like interesting programs like big brother ? In France the people in Big Brother are becoming stars, famous and all, writing book about their experience "inside" or autobiography (true !! I swear) and they're not even 25 ! So yes, why think ? It doesn't bring money, does it ?

Am I ranting ? Yes, I am. Sorry.  :(
But still.

There's "wet behind the ears" and then there's "facepalm"... lol  :P
