Drive-Thru Dummy

I used to work in fast food. Not the most glamorous of professions but it paid the bills.
I was in an environment that causes the idiots to flock. The people would pull their cars into the parking lot and leave all traces of common sense in their vehicle. I personally feel that people are more picky about their fast food than they are about their religion. Or maybe fast food was their religion and that's why they were so upset when order a $50 meal in the drive-thru and complained why it took so long to get their food (aha!).
Anyway, one day I was taking orders in drive-thru and one of my customers was a very excited man who had never been in a drive-thru before. I went along with it since it seemed like fun. He ordered his food and then pulled around to the window to pay. One quick swipe of his debit card and he was off to the next window to pick up his food. I yelled to the people at the next window, "this is his first time in a drive-thru!" Once I said that I hear them yell back, "he drove off! He forgot to pick up his food!" Rookie mistake. Why was I not surprised?
A few minutes later he did come back. But only after his stomach said to him, "where's the food, air head?"
How can someone totally miss the reason for their food run? It's like going to the library to check out a book and leaving that book with the librarian at the check out counter. Why?
I have a million stories from fast food. I am likely to share more of them in the future!

Parking Putters

Parking lots are very tricky places. You have to maneuver your vehicle down several rows before deciding to choose a space. Once chosen, the driver must put their car in that space. It's harder than it sounds.

People sometimes use this opportunity to be creative. I suggest to use something else as a creative outlet. However, many people think otherwise.

Some people choose to position their car so it takes two spaces (1 point, not very creative and can be messy). If you park far enough over the line you magically have plenty of room to open your door. But you also run the risk of someone being ornery and parking really close to you to salvage what's left of that missing parking spot (2 points for those people for taking back the space!).

People who drive with trailers or just have long vehicles sometimes park so they take up about ten spaces (3 points for how many spaces are taken up). There are places where extra long vehicles seem to not be welcomed due to lack of appropriate parking spaces. But those places underestimate how determined people can be. Fortunately, most people that use those parking methods park in the back of the lot away from the people that choose to park the traditional way. This style of parking is unlikely to happen during the Christmas shopping season.

My favorite is backing into an angled parking spot (Five points, creative but not too messy). Clearly you're suppose to pull in forward. If you back into the angled parking space and then leave it's like going the wrong way down a one way street. Trouble happens when oncoming traffic comes your way.

It's been a few years since I learned to drive, but I don't remember learning to park like that. What driving school did these people go to? Maybe it is a driving school from the arts academy (people who color outside the lines)? Who can know?

And what are we supposed to do with all these points?

Banking On Stupidity

At a bank there are a lot of complicated procedures that the layman doesn't understand. Compound interest, adjustable rate mortgages or maybe even banking fees. But I've come across more than a few people that admit they don't know how to fill out a deposit slip.

When I got my first job and started depositing my paychecks, I didn't ask anyone how to fill out a deposit slip. I did something that I don't think many people have figured how to do: read! It told me to list how much cash I wanted, my checks I'm putting in, how much cash I want back and how much to put in the account. It seems so simple!

Is it that there are still so many people out there that are illiterate? Is it that people are lazy and would rather the teller coddle them and fill everything out? Is it that these people are just stupid?

The marketing industry spends vast amounts of money trying to find out what way is the most user-friendly way to do things. Focus groups, surveys, brainstorming -- should we blame marketing for doing such a lousy job at making a simple deposit slip? Maybe the people in marketing have higher than average IQs causing what they produce to be simple for them but complicated for us common people.

I honestly want to know why some people don't know how to fill out a deposit slip! This is a chance for the other side to prove me wrong!

Same Stupid, Different Day

I've decided to start a blog about how stupid people are. It's a great way to put my frustrations to use and possibly find out if there is an explanation for what people do (maybe see their side of things). I feel like it would give the other side a chance to explain themselves. Maybe I don't have all the information and I'm missing something.

I generally feel that people are stupid. I'm hoping this will change my mind. I want to hear it from the other side. Please prove to me you are not stupid!
