Default The "Good god people I know are super dumb" thread

For all those moments when you see someone do something so blatantly stupid that you just want to scream at them and shake them, tell us about it here!


For example, girl I know got a $300 speeding ticket, dumb enough on its own.However, she has decided to not pay for it in favor of spending money on gratuitous amounts of alcohol for her birthday in a few days. She has the money for it, it's not as if she cant afford it, but shes willing to let her liscence get suspended just so she can get drunk. Fucking. Retarded.

We had someone come into the store and steal some DVD's and got away with it.

Half an hour later he came back to steal again, still holding onto his previous loot. Obviously he was caught red handed.

Not someone I know, but I figured it was stupid enough to post.

Fair enough, general stupidity would probably be a better bit for this thread, rather than JUST people you know.

There was a girl here who when presenting information to the class on stuff we were supposed to be learning went "I dunno, I didn't get really get the reading. But, I can tell you it's in no way relevant to me or what I'll be doing."

It was a Management Theory class. Also, professor staring right at her. Don't do that stuff. Don't. Do. It.

Same girl later on in the semester apparently. Professor is gonna give out the final to be done over a week and due on the 12th. He instead assigns it a week earlier and makes it due on the 10th instead. So now instead of 1 week, had almost 2 full weeks to work on it. But because it was due on the 10th instead of 12th, the girl got all pissy and was like "BUT YOU SAID IT WOULD BE DUE ON THE 12TH! WHAT THE HELL?" So to retort, he says "What day did I say it would be assigned?" She just kinda gets quiet and goes, "Next week." So he just goes, "You know what? Screw it. It's due on the 4th. It's due next week." The thing though was that it was not actually a full week from that class. So instead of about 12 days to do it that he was going to give instead of the 7, he instead gave them 5 days to do it.

Some people need to know when is the right time to complain. That was certainly not it because she screwed everyone over. Made me glad I wasn't in that class.

Best way to find out who in your life is dumb as dirt:

Send out a mass text message to your contacts list claiming to have misplaced your cell phone and ask them to call your number so you can find it.

My coworker got pulled over for speeding, and after receiving his ticket told the cop that his mustache was "fucking dumb".

The cop just said "fair enough" and walked away.

On a related note of people being doing stupid things around cops and the cops remaining calm anyway, here's one of my personal favorite incidents. I just wish it didn't have the big watermark thing over it.



That guy pretty mad. Also, yeah, don't do what that guy does.

A friend of mine literally cannot spell to save his life. He is not dyslexic and can read very well, but he has on many occasions asked me to spell words like "what".

There is a four-way stop that I have to pass through almost daily.

Nobody. fucking. knows. how. it. works. It is basic driver's ed, why is this so hard?!?!?! Somebody almost hit me a few weeks ago because not only did they NOT EVEN STOP but they did not use a turning signal and it was not their rightaway. :I

Cop pulled a friend of my mom's over on the I-5 in LA for speeding during rush hour. If you know anything about the west coast, you know that you're more likely to get struck by lightning while getting attacked by a shark on leap year than you are to speed during rush hour on the I-5. The funny thing was, the friend was black.

The case got laughed right out of court and dismissed as soon as it hit the judge's table.

Probably more racist than stupid, but really? Speeding during rush hour on the I-5? How stupid do you think our law system is?

I work at a Subway, and I might end up posting here a lot. Who knows.

We have a sauce for sandwiches called "Chipotle Southwest." - A lot of people refer to it as "Chipoltay" or even "Shipoltay" but the other day this lady came in and was very aggravating to make a sandwich for. Kept changing her mind and blahblahblah, but at the end of the line, she looked at me dead in the eye and asked for "Chippuhlow sauce"

I seriously had to think what she was asking for, and ended up picking up the chipotle sauce to make sure that's what she meant.

I dunno, man. I dunno.

Chippuhlow.

You ever have anyone come into a place you work and tell you they don't eat any sort of meat, or that they are vegan, and then proceed to ask you about the fish?

No way you didn't. I was poking fun at the fact I'm not eating meat anymore. It was silliness.

Plus this person clearly doesn't know what they're talking about.

It just drives me crazy when someone comes in and says they don't eat meat, then orders fish.

Yeah, for me, it's not the act of only eating fish that bothers me. Whatever makes 'em happy, man. It's that they find ways to justify eating it by not calling it meat. Not red meat, mind you. Just not meat. Some have flat out said they were vegan and then bought salmon.

Yeah, be what you say you are. Fish it meat. It's not a goddamn plant. It might be 'better' for you than red meat or poultry or whatever but you still aren't vegan by any means.

Fish aren't cute, though, so it's okay to kill them. Cows are fuzzy and adorable and HOW DARE WE USE THEM FOR MILK

My boss says it's ok to eat fish during lent because they're mammals, not meat. No word there is a mistake, that's exactly what he says and believes.

Fish is good for your smarts anyways.
