HOW 2 SPOT AN IDIOT

I got this from my niece in Germany

I was signing the receipt for my credit card purchase when the clerk noticed that I had never signed my name on the back of the credit card. She informed me that she could not complete the transaction unless the card was signed. When I asked why, she explained that it was necessary to compare the signature of the credit card with the signature I just signed on the receipt. So I signed the credit card in front of her. She carefully compared that signature to the one I signed on the receipt. As luck would have it, they matched.

IDIOTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road. The reason: many deer were being hit by cars and he no longer wanted them to cross there.

IDIOTS IN FOOD SERVICE
My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the individual behind the counter for "minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg.

IDIOT SIGHTINGS Sighting #1:
I was at the airport, checking in at the gate, when the airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?" I said, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He smiled and nodded knowingly, "That's why we ask."

Idiot Sighting #2:
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it is safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an intellectually challenged co-worker of mine, when she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals to blind people when the light is red. She responded, appalled, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?"

Idiot Sighting #3:
At a good-bye lunch for an old and dear coworker who is leaving the company due to "downsizing," our manager spoke up and said, "this is fun. We should have lunch like this more often." Not another word was spoken. We just looked at each other like deer staring into the headlights of an approaching truck.

Idiot Sighting #4:
I worked with an Individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and for the life of her could not understand why her system would not turn on.

Those are good!

I put "Ask for ID" on the back of my card, never sign them.

Does anyone ever ask for your ID?

When I bar tended I would always try and ask, even when it was obvious that they were the card holder.

I had a moron try to pay for a gun with a card that on the back said "DON'T ACCEPT, STOLEN"

When I showed the owner he said check multiple id's, I did, and the guy asked me why and I showed him his card. He said he wrote that to see if anyone would ever stop him and I was the first person after 2 years....what a dumbass

I do the same but they still never ask...at the places where you swipe it yourself, they never even touch/see your card.

Me too, I get the biggest kick out of that. They look at you like the card might go off.

I had a lady at the Dillard's at Willowbrook Mall tell me that I needed to sign the back of my card. I told her that if the photo of me on the front of me was not enough, then there really was no point...
