They Walk Among Us

My husband and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25¢.
She said, “You gave me too much money.”
I said, “Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.”
She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 25¢, and said “We're sorry but we don’t do that kind of thing.”
The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at McD's.

We had to have the garage door repaired.
The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, “You need a 1/4 horsepower.”
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, “NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.”
We haven't used that repairman since...

I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.
The reason: “Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.”

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
“Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?”
To which I replied, “If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?”
He smiled knowingly and nodded, “That's why we ask.”

When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
“Hey”, I announced to the technician, “Its open!”
His reply, “I know. I already did that side.”


They walk among us…....
