Warning: They Walk Among Us!

My neighbor bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it!" For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal; it looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale - $50." That very night, someone stole it.

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

Another friend of mine used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day he got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. He told the caller, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." The caller responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific Time?" Wanting to end the call quickly, my friend said, "Uh, Pacific . . ."

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving . . ."

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car. It's designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps the tool 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 two cases. The cashier multiplied two times 10% and gave us a 20% discount . . .

I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, "Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?" I explained that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned . . .

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 . . . ?"

While dining 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 four pieces or six. He thought about it for some time before responding: "Just cut it into four pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat six pieces . . ."

 

They walk among us!

 

. . . and they reproduce!

Fantastic! I love them. Particulary the first and the last. The first one could be written by Douglas Adams, it is to funny. The last one reminds me of a German soccer-player who once said

The scary thing is, is that there are people out there like this.

 

 

My point exactly, Fox - "They walk among us!"

For many years I had an electronics business. That first story reminds me of one strange thing I learned.

 

If I had TV that sat around for awhile I would of course discount the price. However, you could only discount it so far until it would NOT sell. If it was discounted by 50% people would just NOT buy it! One night on a whim while showing one of those to a customer I mentioned how it was "used". Still had half of the new warranty. And the customer bought it right away. I soon learned to sell brand new items that had stood around a bit as used.

 

Later I found that such is a very common sales technique in businesses.

But why would someone want something that was used as opposed to something that has just been on the shelf for a while and not used?
