This is a warning to EVERYONE in the world…”they” are here…the live and walk with us…and you never know when you may encounter one.  It truly is amazing how many of these creatures we experience…sometimes on a daily basis. I found this “evidence list” recently and decided to share it with everyone who is interested. So, like I previously stated, be warned for ”they” walk among us!


I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The cashier rang up $46.64 charges. I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave the money back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor. She became indignant and informed me she was educated and knew what she was doing, and returned the money again. I gave her the money back, same scenario!
I departed the store with the $46.64.
They Walk Among Us and Many Work Retail

I walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get- one-free coupon for a Grande Latte. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little chalkboard that said ‘buy one-get one free’. ‘They’re already buy-one- get-one-free,’ she said, ‘so I guess they’re both free’. She handed me my free Lattes and I walked out the door.

One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when one of them shouted, ‘Look at that dead bird!’ Someone looked up at the sky and said, ‘Where?’

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 all that stuff.’

I 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 sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

My friends and I went out to buy beer and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

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 place I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before responding. ‘Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don’t think I’m hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.’
Yep, They Walk Among Us!


If you have had some similar experiences, please share feel free to share them!


  1. A friend asked me to accompany her to the Secretary of State to renew her driver’s license. In the State where we live, that is only necessary every 5 years. She was divorced 3 years ago and the order of the court gave her right to return to her maiden name, but since her license was not up for renewal, she hadn’t bothered to do so.

    When she told the woman that she wanted to change her last name on her driver’s license, the woman went through a list of things that the SoS accepted, among them, an order of the court. My friend presented the certified copy of the order and pointed out the appropriate paragraph.

    The worker looked at the date and said, “This is dated three years ago. It might be too old for me to accept. I have to check with my supervisor.”

    My friend responded, “You mean, you think it’s expired?” The worker replied, “Well yes. It’s three years old.”

    My friend then responded, ” If this order has expired, then the divorce is expired and I’m married again.”

    The worker stood there for a moment and then said, “I guess you’re right.”


  2. You had me worried: “**WARNING!** They Walk Among Us!!!”
    I was poised to click out of graphic images or nudity… And you begin telling my about my neighbors and relatives! There are people that are actually that intellectually challenged and you might find it odd that they hold down respectable jobs. Perhaps we could do better to send them to congress!


  3. Yes, they do walk among us! Just finished looking at that video of the Arizona Legislator trying to tell us that anti gay bill wasn’t discrimination.

    Of course, there is only one item that might be a bit debatable. It’s the airline one, and that’s because luggage doesn’t always travel on the same flight that you are on.
    So, “Has your flight arrived yet?” might just be a shorthand way of asking; “Has the flight that your luggage was on, arrived yet?” I’m pretty sure that a human would get tired of asking the full blown question in so many words so often. While such “short hand” encapsulations give rise to those weird headlines we see in newspapers, like: “One armed man applauds kindness”. Obviously they meant “Is thankful for kindness”, but space and ink rule the day.

    Many times I’ve taken flights where, for various reasons they had to put my luggage on another flight. Sometimes, they tell you they’ll send it along to your hotel, only to fail to have it arrive, so it’s back to the airport to check for it. Obviously you wouldn’t be there if your flight, the one you were on, didn’t arrive, but I’m sure the overworked and defensive attendant, meant did the flight your luggage was on, arrive. So that one is a bit questionable.

    Otherwise good collection, and I’m sure we’ve all met people like that, I know I have and still do.
