Not so sucky as just plain dumb:

Lady in front of me in line at Kmart was buying a long drapery rod. Asked the cashier if that would fit her kitchen window.

Cashier says (her tone indicating she couldn't believe she'd heard that right) Excuse me?

Lady repeats question. Cashier says "Um....I guess it will."

She looks at me. I give her a commiserating smile and slight wink. She smile back.

I was thinking she probably shouldn't have said that. If it doesn't fit, the flakey broad will be back screaming for her head.

I would have said as much, but the woman took so long putting her wallet back in her purse that she was STILL THERE after the cashier rung me up and I was on my way. :rolleyes:

That's one of those "I dunno, you tell me" kind of questions.

Well, woman should have measure her windows before buying it or check the length of the rod to see if it will fit.

Why do that when you can ask the Great And Powerful KMart Cashier?:lol:

Oh, didn't you know? When we get hired on as cashiers, they give us invisible headsets to wear that tell us all the information anyone needs to know at any given point in time.

If it makes sense, it's not allowed. Well all know that.

and the wise cashier looked up from her scanner with a calm knowledgable look on her face and said softly

"how long, is a piece of string ma'am"

and the stupid woman was silenced, for she knew that such intelligence should not be questioned

and retail workers everywhere rejoiced

:D

People used to come into Kinko's all the time asking for something to be blown up to "poster size." :rolleyes:

How big a poster do you want that blown up to, ma'am? :lol:

I had a gentleman today that came in asking if we knew what miracle diet pill had been advertised on TV that it was being carried at my chain. Hell if I know, I'm always at work during prime time, so I just don't watch tv at all.
He kept interrupting me every time I tried to continue to tell him the location of those products, too. Gah, dummy, shut your yap for 3 seconds and go away!

Well, ma'am, I can guarantee that rod will fit because every kitchen in the country has the same sized windows AND every kitchen is located in the front of the house, therefore facing North. That particular rod is only meant to be used on a Northern window.

:lol: That woman would freak out if she had my grandmother's house. Every window, even those right next to each other, is a slightly different size. That means, that if you take the curtains down to wash them, putting them back up is a pain. It's even more fun if you mix up the cut-to-fit curtain rods :eek: Not too surprising, since the house was built in 1864 and *nothing* is "standard."

Me too!

Every window in my grandmother's house is the same size, yet she went ballistic if you put the curtains/windowshades back up "wrong" (what was the "right" way I will probably never know; they're all the same)...

"It'll fit a window.. your kitchen window? I dunno. You haven't invited me over for coffee yet so I could see."
