Stupid Questions

Wed Apr 14, 2004 6:50 am

Share with us some of the dumbest question you were ever asked.

Today some cop pulled me over for passing another car in the right lane. He asked before he left (verbal warning) "Do you have a license?"

 Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up Freaken halarious. What if I didn't? He didn't check.

At LAX TSA asked if I had exploives.......................  Big thumbs up

In my tech theatre class:

-How wide is a 2x4?

(i'm aware that a 2x4 is really 1.5 x 3.5, but it was still freakin hilarious)

I was once asked ..... "do your parents have any children that lived?"  Laugh out loud

Seriously though,

A flying instructor once asked me ..... "Are you actually trying to kill us, or do you just like flying that close to the trees?"

I have asked people if they had seen my glasses when I was wearing them and didn't realize it.

I can't think of any others off the top of my head.

This one always gets me:

Deserted dining room where I work and people walk in and ask: "Are you open?"

I feel like responding: "No, we just are testing our alarm system..."

We had a bunch of Anti-abortion *missionaries* on school grounds (wow) and we drove by and they wanted us to get a brochure, we said "sorry, we're pro-choice" he asked:

"Do you know what that means?"

No sorry sir, I don't know what that means.  Big thumbs up

Me and a friend were eating Oreos once (licking out the filling) and I (absent-mindedly) started to ask him if he wanted my cookies after I licked the cream off of them.  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud

747buff: Long ago, I worked at Subway Sandwiches. We had a deal where it was only $1 more for twice the meat. I had one guy order his sandwich and say "....and could you double my meat?"

Standing in line to order lunch at the Subway at Freeport and the John Carpenter Expressway, near the north entrance to DFW Airport (Dallas)....

Some girl looked at the ID badge I had around my neck and asked me "I didn't know American Eagle had a store near here. Where is it? I just love your clothes!"

Took me a minute to register she meant the clothing store/brand American Eagle and I had to disappoint her by saying, no, there isn't a store nearby.

There was a kid in one of my high school history classes that actually asked, "Where was the Berlin Wall?" I am not kidding!

Long time ago, I had Honda CRX. I push accident button remote for alarm system. I didn't hear outside blaring. I had radio on not that loud it was rock n' roll music. I didn't know the sound as well. I drove to Burger King. A cop was following me. I parked and got out of my car. I hear something loud blaring. I push the button off the alarm. Cop says what are you doing? He asked me do you have driver license? I told him, I am hard of hearing I didn't realized I push accident by mistake on my remote. Guess what? A cop says you'd better to fix your car alarm system something is wrong. I raised my voice to him, NO! I said, I push accident button my remote. I am deaf! A cop said, ah oh ok. What a moron! Cop isn't smart. I can't believe that cop asked me so stupid question!

One of the stupidest question I ever heard is a typical one in the airline industry.
And that is when people ask me 1 or 2 days in advance if the flight they are going with 1 or 2 days later is delayed.
It makes me laugh every damn time... Big grin

My buddy's cute (but not too bright) girlfriend went with him to see Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Upon exiting the theater, she turned to him and asked, in all seriousness, whether the movie was based on a true story.

Was working for a tour company in Croatia when a guest asked me "When is the Sunday Market?"

Also, during the same job, was asked if the flight was on time. However, they asked me on the Thursday and the flight was the following Tuesday, so was kinda difficult to give them a sensible answer!
