E-RFD: Idiot Sightings

Three people tell their stories:
(1) 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." 

(2) This happened in Birmingham , Alabama.  The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with a coworker of mine. She asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?!" 

She was a probation officer in Wichita , KS . 

(3)  When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the drivers 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, "its open!" His reply, "I know. I already got that side." 

This was at the Ford dealership in Canton , Mississippi 


They walk among us ... and the scary part is that they VOTE and REPRODUCE and our enemies know it!!! 

Note: E-RFDs are messages that circulate around the internet.  Some are factual and some are mythical.  We make no distinction between the types, here, but rather offer them pretty much as they come in -- as examples of comment and rumor from a global mind.
