How do these people survive?

These are true stories, which makes them even more fun.



Recently, when I went to McDonald’s I saw on the menu tht you could have an order of 6, 9, or 12 Chicken McNuggets.

I asked for half a dozen nuggets.

“We don’t’ have half dozen nuggets,” sid the teenager at the counter.

“You don’t?” I replied.

“We only have six, nine, or twelve,” was the reply.

“So I can’t order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?”

“That’s right.”

So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets.




I was checking out at the local Walmart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those dividers that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn’t get mixed.


After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the divider, looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it.


Not finding the bar code, she said to me,” Do you know how much this is?”

I said to her, “I’ve changed my mind; I don’t think I want it.”

She said, “Ok.”

I paid he for the things nd left.

She had no clue what hd just happened.




I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car.

“Do you need some help,” I asked.

She replied, “I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can’t get into my car. Do yo think they,’ pointing to a distant convenience store, “would have a battery to fit this?”

Hmmmm, I don’t’ know. Do you have an alarm, too?” I asked.

No, just this remote thingy,” she answered handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, “Why don’t you drive over there and check about the batteries. It’s a long walk.”




A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Bendaryl and she should be fine. The mother says, “I just gave him some ant killer.”

Dispatcher: “Rush him in to the hospital.”
