1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Here's some chuckles for today, since we all need one on Monday.
(Sent to me by my better half Debi, I changed the 2nd one from Mickey D to
Starbucks and sandwich to Latte so it would be sort of on topic:-)
	I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up $46.64 charge.
I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave it back to
her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor and gave her the
money back. 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
again...same scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64. 
	This actually happened to me in Austin at MoPac Blvd and Parmer
Lane. 
...............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. 
...............They Walk Among Us and Many Work Retail.
	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?" 
...............They Walk Among Us!
	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."
...............They Walk Among Us!!
	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."
...............They Walk Among Us!
	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. 
...............They Walk Among Us!
	My friends and I were on a beer run 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. 
...............They Walk Among Us! 
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?"
...............They Walk Among Us!
	While working at a pizza parlor 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!
	They Walk Among Us, AND they reproduce, and WORST OF
ALL...................................they VOTE!
