Did you really just say that?!

Let’s put karma aside for a minute here folks because I need to relay to you one of the most stupid things I have heard in person in a while. And I work in a bank meaning I come into contact with stupid people daily. My branch is inside a mall which has a Walmart attached. I despise Walmart, I truly die a little inside when I move between those ridiculous metal posts (and people still get the carts into the mall so why bother?), but my love of chocolate milk over-rides any personal standards I have. It is the cheapest place in the mall to purchase the finest beverage in existence.

In an attempt to waste as little of my lunch as possible in the pit of evil, I head to the nearest checkout which happens to be near a new jungle of potted palms. The cashier looks to one of the spawns of evil that are moving the trees in place and says, quite loudly I might add, “Guh! Do you think we could have any more of those frickin’ plants here? They are sucking up all the oxygen!”.

At first, I wasn’t going to say anything. I thought perhaps this poor deprived girl had taken ill during the grade one project of growing a little bean plant in a styrofoam cup that allowed us to learn all about the process of plants taking in the carbon dioxide we expel and releasing the oxygen we then breathe in. But when my turn at the cash came, I couldn’t help but say “Plants actually do the opposite, eh (I’m Canadian :P)?”

She looked to me and nodded knowingly as she responded “I know, its just at night that the plants steal it.”.

I just didn’t have anything more to say. What can one say when they have just come in contact with such high quality stupidity flavoured with a hint of crazy? Especially when said person still has her coveted chocolate milk in their hands?

  1. It’s nice to know that the stupidity of the average Wal-Mart employee is apparently universal. I thought we had that market cornered way down here in Georgia.

    On average, how many teeth does each Wal-Mart worker have up that way? I think it might be 9 here. 😀

  2. Um….do the rotten ones count as a whole or a half? 😛
