I work for a large security agency's dispatch.
We had a lady on one of our properties call the cops because maintenance put a used ice cube tray in her fridge. Oh, how I wish I was joking.
We get a lot of stupid calls, too, but that one stands out as the dumbest.
was sleepy @ 8pm but was too early to go to sleep, so i stayed awake.
then when it was time for bed I couldn't fall asleep.
drank 1/2 of a neurosleep @ midnight.
woke up feeling sleepy and have felt sleepy at work all day
I got one from today:
Guy I'm friends with on Facebook posted bragging about how he changed what his child was watching from Dora to Spongebob because Dora had the audacity (my word, not his, I doubt he knows what audacity means) to teach his kid words in Spanish.
I posted this in reply: Study Says Kids Watching Spongebob Have Trouble Paying Attention
Scheduled to work at 10am this morning. GM calls @6am in a panic b/c the RM is making a visit later and wants me there asap. So in my rush I spaced out and wore my old shitty vans instead of my steel-toed work boots.
Fast forward 2hrs. I roll a pallet jack carrying 288gallons of milk onto my foot. Broke a few bones.
fyl bro i'm sorry. pallet went to war with my foot once and i lost my big toe nail
Edit: wow I meant foot not food... fail.
Ouch, sorry about the foot
Wtf is Neurosleep? Besides apparently a coma in a bottle.
So, I called up Jimmy Johns about a year ago. I'm like Qalbert, so I order a JJ Gargantuan (It is all the meats they have except for bacon) without veggies or mayo because I don't like mayo and there's not enough room for veggies on that sandwich. I get a sandwich with only bacon on it. They thought I said JJ BLT...(without veggies or mayo)
I work at a hardware store, so I get my share of complete and utter idiots all the time.
This last Christmas I had a woman come in looking for a male-male extension cord because she needed to attach two strings of Christmas lights together. Yes, they already put the lights on the house.
Can relate to this. Can relate to this today actually!Originally Posted by Aksannyi
I primarily work in the drug enforcement section of my department. We don't usually get calls for service like normal patrol but occasionally when a situation calls for plainclothes, we'll get a radio call. Well today we get a call on our city-wide alert for the VICE unit in my service area.
So the Sergeant marks up and says a gentleman called 911 specifically asking for the narcotics division because he believes someone is secretly breaking in to his greenhouse and growing plants that are drugs. Get on scene and he says it's a bunch of kids breaking in his greenhouse planting drugs but he knows what he grows and he knows they're drugs because they're colorful. Go in back to the greenhouse (it's an in-ground shed basically with saran-wrap windows with a small 6x6 patch of dirt he calls his garden) and check it out. See nice neat rows of veggies all labled and he points out the "drugs". Every so often there's a small yellow flower poking out. I said to the guy "Those are dandelions." and he says "Check your book. That shit is drugs! I don't plant them damn things."
Spent almost an hour explaining they're weeds and that it's something you can take care of with routine upkeep etc. etc. (mind you this guys about 80). Spent another 2 hours doing a formal statement for a complaint made by the gentleman because we didn't take care of the drug problem in his own yard. Went outside to go back to my district and a guy from Internal Affairs hit the side of my unmarked with his station wagon. It was the same guy I gave the statement to. Fuck life.
The only response any of us could muster was my friend going "It's about ninja assassins."
A complete idiot, I'd say, would be someone who didn't know that extension cords even existed. Someone who asks for a conjoining cord, many of which exist for countless other cord-related applications, understands that there may be a solution to their problem. However, not everyone fully understands why you wouldn't have a male-to-male extension cord of this kind, and the woman presented you with an opportunity to share your knowledge and potentially prevent her and her family from harming themselves.
I certainly hope you explained why you thought she was a "complete and utter idiot" instead of just saying, "no, those don't exist," and being smug in your douchebaggery.
@ The KFC, I was not aware there were KFCs where they sold chicken feet.
One of my own, waaaay back when, I got a used PC as a gift, managed to format the shit out of it, then because it was so old I could not get any DOS to install properly, it was a brick for a good 8 months since I didn't knew or lived near anyone with access to a computer with 5 1/4 floppies.
I accept this explanation, and am glad to hear that you did the right thing.
So this asshole at work today used the ice tray in my fucking mini fridge, I went postal on his bitch ass and called the po-po's.
