Seriously?

A friend paid me for some cards I made. She paid with a check. Not having a bank account myself (I do not believe in banks), I went to the institution whereupon the check was drawn. The teller smiled rather sheepishly and said, "I'm afraid there will be a $6.00 charge to cash this check." I exclaimed, "What? Why?! Isn't it drawn on this bank?" "Yes," she explained. "But you don't have an account with us. Would you like to open one?"
Seriously?

Recently a friend's son was pulled over by the police. They proceeded to search his car for drugs and give him a breathalyzer test. He couldn't imagine why he was getting such treatment, so he asked the cop what he'd done. "Nothing," said the cop. "You were driving very carefully and it made us suspicious."
Seriously?

"You're clearly well qualified for the position - you're intelligent and creative. You've got a great attitude and your personality would fit well within the company. But. I can't hire you." "What?! Why not?" "Sadly, you don't fit our required demographic, if you know what I mean."
Seriously?

Warning on a package of bacon: May contain pork and/or pork products.
Seriously?

"I'm sorry, I can't help you with that." "Okay, is there someone there who knows how?" "Oh, I know how. I just can't because it's not in my job description."

Seriously?

Overheard at the ranger station: "Why can't we have a fire at our campsite?" "Because we haven't had significant rain in over two months and the threat of forest fires is very high right now." "Well... it's not like we're going to use wood... we have charcoal!"
Seriously?

Seriously?

Seriously.
Really.

  2. Yeah some people are just too dumb for words barb, too dumb for words.
    I only got a bank account because I have to have one, since I get paid by check all the time!
