Idiot Sighting 1:
My daughter and i went through the Mcdonalds take-away window and I gave the girl a £5 note.
Our total was £4.20, so I also handed her a twenty pence piece.
She said, "You gave me too much money."
I said, "Yes I know, but this way you can just give me £1 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 20 pence and said "We're sorry but they could not do that kind of thing."
The girl then proceeded to give me back 80 pence in change...?
Note: Please Do Not confuse the girls at Macd's.
Happened in Nottingham UK
Idiot Sighting 2:
We had to have the garage door repaired. The Garrador (name changed) 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 Garrador 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 and he said, "Nooo, it's not, four is larger than two!"
We haven't used Garrador repair since!
Happened in Bromley, Kent UK
Idiot sighting 3:
I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbour call the Highways department to request the removal of the deer crossing sign on our Lane.
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 any-more!"

She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimum lettuce.'
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce!

Idiot Sighting 5:
I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an Irish 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!"
Happened Luton airport, UK
Idiot Sighting 6:
The stoplight on the corner buzzes 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 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?!'
She is a local county council employee in Dartford Kent, UK
Idiot Sighting 7:
When my husband and i arrived at our local Ford dealer 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 mechanic "it's open!"
His reply, "I know, I already did that side!"
This was at the Ford dealership in St Albans, Hertfordshire UK.
Stay alert! They walk among us... And the scary part is that is they have the Right to vote and reproduce!
