Stupid Questions or Stupid People?

no-stupid-peopleHere are a few stories sourced from around the web about true experiences of encounters of the “stupid kind“. Seams like the best experiences are the ones that happen in real life and not the Hollywood scripted variety. Now not all of these are actual questions, some are just plain old-fashion logic. Your dilemma is to decide whether the questions are stupid or the people asking the questions are stupid.  You’ll find that most of the people involved in these scenarios are not quite firing on all cylinders 😛 Enjoy!


This guy bought a new refrigerator for his house and needed to discard  the old one. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying… “Free to good home. You want it, you take it”.

For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too skeptical of this deal. It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: “Fridge for sale $50 bucks”.

The next day someone stole it. Go figure!


While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn’t want the sun waking him up every morning.

She asked, “Does the sun rise in the North?”

When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, (and has for sometime), she shook her head and said, “Oh, I don’t keep up with that stuff”.


stupid-bunnyI used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, “The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

He responded, “Is that Eastern or Pacific time?”

Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, “Uh, Pacific”.


My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore.

She drove down in a convertible, but commented that “I didn’t think I’d get sunburned because the car was moving”.


My sister has been telling everyone she knows that she has a lifesaving tool in her car.

It’s designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets in an accident and gets trapped.

She keeps it in the trunk for safety.


My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed at one convenience store that the cases were discounted 10%.

We thought that since it was a big party, we go ahead and buy 2 cases.

The cashier went ahead and multiplied 2 times 10% — and gave us a 20% discount.


I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain. My friend commented, “Wouldn’t the chain rip out every time she turned her head?”

I explained that a person’s nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned.


We had just arrived back at the airport and proceeded to retrieve my belongings at the claim area. After searching and waiting awhile, I couldn’t find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. “Now,” she asked me,  “has your plane arrived yet? “


While working at a Pizza Parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the waiter asked him if he would like it cut into 4 slices or 6 slices.

He though about it for some time before responding. “Just cut it into 4 pieces — I don’t think I’m hungry enough to eat 6.”
