What's the Most Stupid Thing You've Ever Heard At Work?? - Page 2

post #31 of 38
This didn't happen to me, but to a friend of mine. He worked the IT desk for his company. He got a call:

Rick: this is Rick.
Cust: Hi Rick...my computer won't turn on.
Rick: OK, lets check a few things.
He then had them checking wires and buttons. Nothing was happening.
Rick: OK...I'll get someone out to help. Can you give me the serial number?
Cust: No, I can't see it.
Rick: Its on the back of the unit.
Cust: Its too dark in here.
Rick: What do you mean, its too dark.
Cust: We're in the middle of a power outage. There's no electricity to the building, so we have no lights.

I live in the Washington, D.C. area. One day I was showing a friend around the city, and for fun we took a Tourmobile Ride. As we passed the Washington Monument, I actually heard a lady ask the driver, how do you get all the flags (which encircle the monument) to fly in the same direction?

We have had a customer ask if we could get bleach stains out of her carpet. (Of course we can, with a carpet knife )


Check out the printing on the bottom of the online order form that we upload to our corporate office: Check here if there is cash with your order.

I think one of the all time dumbest things I've ever heard was when I worked in the programming lab in college (the first time, LOL- I've started working on a second degree this spring). So I was 19 or 20, and there was a guy who I remembered from a class when I was a freshman. He was married and always hitting on girls on campus. Meanwhile he would make disgustingly lovey-dovey calls to his wife from the lab.

One day he decided to hit on me...I was mightily annoyed. He was way older than me and we all knew he was married.

He decided to make small flirty talk with me then hits me with:
"What kind of necklace is that?"
Me: A dragon's tooth.
"Is that a real dragon's tooth?"
Me: Yeah. It's real.

I was wearing a necklace with a ceramic dragon's tooth. Obviously there aren't real dragons dude.

That's still one of the dumbest things I ever heard at work.

Just talked on the phone to my cousin who works for a large city in the dept. of birth and death certificates (well half the job is joyful). A young man comes in and asks her if she has a birth certificate for John Smith. What year, sir? Oh, about 19 years ago. Smith is a common name, do you have a middle initial or date of birth? How about trying Jose Garcia born on 7/4 he says. She tells him that there are many entries for that name/date. He told her, "Look, lady, I just need a false identity to get a green card." My cousin told him that immigration was 2 doors down on the left and, by the way, that nice looking guy in the uniform at the door will be happy to escort you.

There's a lady who works in the lab with me, who actually hasnt spoken to me in a month or so because she got in trouble over a safety issue that involved me (turned off ventilation to a balance enclosure and I got a nice sniff of potassium permanganate - some bad stuff to inhale. I told the boss, she got written up, but I dont feel sorry because it was my freakin' safety!!)

One day, this came out of her mouth while everyone was just babbling about different crap in the lab.

"Black people cannot be racist, only white people."

Are you kidding me?!?!?!?

I think she heard it from another girl who works there, because Rob heard someone else in the lab say it when he worked there too!
