Posted:this one is where the answer is stupid, not neccisarily the question (though it ain't the brightest question ever either).

It is an actual exchange between two of my ex-wife's friends (who both work for an airline):

"which state is San Francisco in?"
"Hey stupid, San Francisco is a state!"
umm
(yes, she was blonde - very blonde)

Posted:oh vanize....yours just totally reminded me of an exchange i had with the lovely folks at Sprint...

right before i went to kent, i called Sprint to find out if my phone could roam internationally. they transfered me to the "international roaming" department (they only deal with answering questions about international roaming...note that...it's important)

so this lady gets on the line, and i ask her, "i'm going to england and i wanted to find out if i'm still able to use my phone while i'm there."

she says, "ok, what's the country?"

i stifle a laugh, thinking perhaps she didn't hear me, and say, "england."

now mind you...her entire job is to know INTERNATIONAL roaming. she should know the countries right? at least the rather well-known ones.

she comes back with, "i can't find it. are you sure that's a country?"

i, at this point, am stuck between laughing and wanting to yell at her for being an idiot. i reply, "yes, perhaps try the United Kingdom."

she's goes to try again, after a short bit, comes back and says, "no i can't seem to find that either. are you SURE that's a country?"

i am speechless at this point. after composing myself, i say, "yes. maybe look under britain, or great britain."

she tries yet again, coming back again and say, "no, no i can't seem to find it."

i think it can't get any worse. i was wrong. exasperated, i finally say, "i'm going to london...." she cuts me off before i can finish and says, "oh london, let me look for that." she proceeds to look for london under the list of countries.

i gave up after that.

Posted:Oh man, I'm all pink from laughing. this thread is the best idea I've had since the last one.! I have a very boring job and I go into work and tell ppl about the replies. It's so much fun.

The "can I ask a question?" one happens all the time. i used to work in a backpackers hostel and whenever a Swiss or Austrian wanted to ask a question they would say "I have a question" to which I would shriek and hide under the counter. It's a ploiteness thing for them but they couldn't understand that if someone asked me a question I would automatically know.

Some more rippers:
"Africa's a country isn't it?"
After a trip to Europe in year 4 and getting back to school:
Shane Smith: "How was America?"
Me: "I went to Europe"
SS: "Same thing isn't it?"

Posted:Actually, the prostate has been referred to as the male G-spot many a time by people highly regarded as knowing their stuff. In fact, it is essentially the same gland, just serving slightly different purposes in different sexes. I'm not going to follow the analogy any further than that given the PG-13 rating of HoP, but basically the answer to that question is "yes". ubbrollsmile



Now, I might agree that the wording was a bit off given the enviroment....

Why was that a stupid question?

He didn't live in gloucestershire.

Nor did I.

The only person in the car who did, couldn't drive.

That's pretty stupid.

LOL.. I work at a backpackers in Sydney. I've been asked so many stupid questions that I'm immune to them now. One that will always stay with me though:

American tourist: What's the weather for today?
Me: I've just printed up the forecast, looks like it will rain today...
American tourist: Rain?! O damn... Do you know what time it will rain?
Me: Did you just ask me if I know what time it's gonna rain today?
American tourist: yep
Me: ummmm, no sorry. I don't know what time it will rain today
(to self: duh! let me just give mother earth a call and I'll double check for you!)

I had soooo many very witty replies spinning through my head. I should have said
"o yes, in Sydney it rains at 3.47pm every second day for 25 minutes. Don't forget your raincoat!"

Posted:My friend used to work at an Information-Center-type-deal here in Alberta, out in the middle of nowhere, where the avid 'outdoors-people' (from the inner cities, no doubt) and such would come out for a day or two of camping or hiking. She'd always come over and tell us all the silly questions people would ask her... A few of my favorites were:
"What time do you let the bears out?" (umm)
"What's that white stuff on top of the mountains? How d'you put it up there?" (Hmm, I dunno..)
"Where do you keep the bears, and is there a place I can go to feed them?" (Yep, right over there, Miss, just watch your hands... Or any body part you care to keep...)
"I spotted a bear on the highway two years ago while visiting here. It was climbing across a fence towards a field... Could you tell me where it is now?" ( rolleyes Yes, of course. That would have been 'Smokey', bear number 3746...)

I dunno what their obsession with bears was, but... It made us "bushmen" laugh at their "city ways"...


"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Posted:I can understand the American's request...when we get the daily weather report here, the weatherman usually tells us if it will be raining in the morning, at lunchtime, in the early or late afternoon, during the evening, or at night.

I agree that asking for a specific time is a little bit much though.

I'm not a seal. But I can tell you seals don't eat beef because the seals are not living in Alberta."

Me; I'm sorry but we don't offer this course.

Me: That's right.
Caller: Well can you organise it so that I can do it through your college.

(Yeah like it is that easy to organise a fully accredited course)

Me: The course you have enquired about is only available through university not through the college system.
