This was at

automobile dealership to pick up our car, we
were told the keys had been locked in it.
went to the service department and found a
mechanic working feverishly to unlock the
driver 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, "it's open!" His reply: "I know.
I already got that side."
We had to have the
garage door repaired. The Sears 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

From Kingman , KS:
I live in a semi
rural area. We recently had a new
neighbor call the local township administrative
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."

asked if I knew what the buzzer was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when

Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are

This was a lunch at Texas
At a good-bye
luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was
leaving the company due to "downsizing,"' our manager
commented cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do

Not another word

with that deer-in-the-headlights stare.
