    They Walk Among Us and Many Work Retail
    I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up $46.64 charge. I
    gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave the
    money back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor.
    She became indignant and informed me she was educated and knew what she
    was doing, and returned the money again. I gave her the money back ..
    same scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64.

    I walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon
    for a grande latte. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a
    little chalkboard that said 'buy one-get one free.' ' They're already
    buy-one-get-one-free,' she said, 'so I guess they're both free'
    She handed me my free lattes and I walked out the door.

    One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when one
    of them shouted, 'Look at that dead bird!' Someone looked up at the
    sky and said, 'Where'?

    While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate
    agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't
    want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, 'Does the
    sun rise in the north?' When my brother explained that the sun
    rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head
    and said, 'Oh I don't keep up with all that stuff.'

    I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One
    day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call
    center was open. I told him, 'The number you dialed is open
    24 hours a day, 7 days a week.' He responded, 'Is that Eastern
    or Pacific time?' Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, 'Uh, Pacific.'

    My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut
    through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

    My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases
    were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The
    cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

    I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went
    to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags
    never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because
    she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. 'Now,'
    she asked me, has your plane arrived yet?'

    They Walk Among Us!
    While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza
    to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he
    would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time
    before responding. 'Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry
    enough to eat 6 pieces.'

    Yep, They Walk Among Us!
