>"You don't?"

>"We only have six, nine, or twelve," was the reply.

>"So I can't order a half-dozen nuggets, but I can order six?"

>"That's right." So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.

>The paragraph above doesn't amaze me because of what happened a couple of months ago. I was checking out at the local Foodland with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine.

Minor correction to your fine post Mark. Life is tough, its

even tougher on those around you if you're stupid.

Mark one huge problem is that

these are not isolated incidents. Just think that these same idiots think they can drive a car and talk on the phone at the same time,or, for that matter, chew gum and cross the street against the light!

And of course for some of them when all else fails they can foist their ignorance and dim witted lack of wit on others by posting in SE!
