stupidest question you've ever been asked

i'm sure this has been done a lot but...well i don't have a reason for doing it again aside from the fact i've never seen it done.

i sold cell phones last year to make cash during school. a lady comes in says she needs a lotta minutes, a really cool phone. we pick one out for her, activate it, and as i'm finishing up with her she asks me how to use it-a little odd but some have never used them. so i tell her about dialing and having to hit the 'send' button.

she say's to me, 'well where does the phone go?'
i look at her confused.
she responds, 'when you hit send, where does it go?'
soon after i am fighting back extreme bouts of laughter as my coworkers are howling.

Kobayashi's bizarre use of colour, superfast editing and extreme camera angles, coupled with a hilariously deadpan performance by Toshiro Takemitsu as the inspector who discovers a whole family of ghosts travelling without valid tickets, remains without peer.

Ancient Civ class...talking about wars:

girl in my class: "Guerilla warfare? Isn't that cruelty to animals?"

Well I 'strain my brain' to think of the dumbest one EVER, but, because it happened so recently..

When I was in Vegas to see U2, the man who drove the airport shuttle-a very pleasant man, probably around 55 years old, asked me why I was in Vegas. When I told him-he said 'U2-who are they-never heard of them'. I said-'Oh, you've never heard of their lead singer-Bono?'

And he asked-'Isn't he that guy from Miami?'

Wouldn't it be cool if the 4th of July came on Friday the 13th?

A survey conductor asked me, 'Miss Suen, are you female or male?'

Oh, I have lists and lists. Since I grew up in the jungles of Indonesia, coming back to visit people in the States was always a fun-filled time of stupid questions.

"Do you speak English?"
"Do you know what a DOG is?"
"Do you eat monkeys?"


Considering the fact that I read and write English better than most Americans I've met, that I've had several dogs, and that no one with any hygeine sense would even touch a monkey (they're dirty little bastards), they always seemed like lame questions to me.

The dumbest question in my books is 'what are you doing?' I am not known for my patience I tell you, more my sarcasm and my ability to insult anyone. So my standard reply is 'what the f*** does it look like numbnuts?' Oh, and I'm known for my colourful language too. I am such a lady.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Stupid me goes back to edit spelling mistakes... score one for karma.
