Grab some Clorox

I think we may need to clean out the gene pool.

I talk to many people every day and as it turns out lots of them are completely clueless. I mean, we're talking how-do-you-manage-to-get-the-correct-feet-into-the-correct-pants-legs clueless.

Here are some examples, for your amusement.


Me: How many household family members are old enough to drive?

Customer: All of them.


Me: How many miles do you put on your car annually?

Customer: You mean, per month?


Me: Does your motorcycle have any special construction?

Customer: Yeah, there's stickers all over this thing. One of them says, "No more than one rider."

[Could he be thinking I said "special INstruction"??]


Customer: You'll have to excuse me. I've had a couple of drinks.


Me: All right. May I have your name?

Customer: Josh.

[You mean, like Cher?]


Me: Do you have the VIN or Vehicle Identification Number?

Customer: [silence]

Me: Do you have the VIN?

Customer: You mean the year, make and model?


Me: What is your zip code?

Customer: 12


Me: Have you moved in the last 60 days?

Customer: What address are you showing?

Me: [reads address]

Customer: Well then, yeah, I've moved.


These are true excerpts from actual conversations I've had. AND THERE'S MORE! That's right. There will be a future installment of Grab the Clorox coming soon. In the meantime, be thinking about some sort of licensing scheme we could use to keep these people from having children.

The funny thing is that they need a license to drive, but not a license to invade our gene pool! SCAREY!

I don't know about you, but I always like to have a couple cocktails before calling my insurance agent...

Here is a one:
me to parent-Your child needs picked up from school, she has a fever of 102.
parent- Well, she was up half the night vomiting! I thought she was better this morning. I can be there in AN HOUR.

Parents should have a license too.
