'Never mind. You just don't get it...'


  1. A couple of years ago I went to a women's basketball game at U of MN. At the concession stand where everything on the menu was either even dollar, or 25, or 50, or 75 cents. Ordered a popcorn 2.25 and a cola 2.50. Person working there, I'm pretty sure was a student at that esteemed center of education, pulled out a TI calculator... really. I thought "Gees, sorta dumb that they would charge sales tax on this, it ought to be included." NOpe, she looked at me and said, "$4.75". I gave her a $10. Out came the calculator and amazingly it told her that my change was $5.25. I was rather stunned at this at the time. I wouldnt be these days.

  2. And they wonder why the customer then took the two bags, put them over the employee's head, pulled the handles as tight as they could, and began pummeling their head with the bottle of juice.

  3. I know it is bad as me and my wife went into a a grocery store in a new town and asked an employee where the "produce" was and got a blank stare. We went hunting and found it. It seems that more and more people are dense.


What are they thinking, Calvin?
