This Is Why You Question Their Knowledge Of Questions

| UT, USA | Extra Stupid, Geeks Rule

(I’m at a very busy convention listening to a guest panel.)

Panelist: “Okay, we’re going to open the floor for questions now, but let me warn you: we’re short on time, so I only want short, one-sentence QUESTIONS, okay? No background, no long life stories. Just ask your question and go. Everyone understand?”

Audience: *nods and murmurs their agreement*

Panelist: “You all get it? Questions ONLY. You learned the difference between questions and statements in kindergarten so I’m trusting you all to be smart about this. Again, everyone understands, QUESTIONS ONLY?”

Audience: *laughs and shouts YES*

Panelist: “Okay, first question.”

Audience Member: “Hi! I’m from Colorado and I’ve been a huge fan of your work since I was a little kid…”

Panelist: *puts head in hands* “NEXT!”

Not Very Closed Minded, Part 13

| Renton, WA, USA | Extra Stupid

(This is during Memorial Day, and our store is closing early for the holiday. I answer the phone at the front desk, frequently while assisting customers. This happens while I’m assisting someone.)

Me: “Thank you for calling [Store]; we close at six pm. How may I direct your call?”

Caller: “Is this [Store]?”

Me: “Yes.”

Caller: “Are you open today?”

Me: “Yes.”

Caller: “What time do you close?”

As Clear As Glass

| Levittown, NY, USA | Bizarre, Extra Stupid

Me: *working on the zone, organizing the wall of Windex bottles*

Guest: *walks up behind me* “Sir, can I ask you a question?”

Me: *I turn around, my back to the Windex* “Certainly.” *with as sincere as a smile as I can muster*

Guest: “Could you tell me where I could find the Windex?”

Me: *having had situations much like this, but the sheer absurdity of this caught me off guard as I silently point my thumb right behind me*
