I'd like to think this man did what he did to get back at the bubble-wrap-popper, because that would provide grounds for considering him as something more than a complete moron ...

If Nelson Gibson's in a room on his own and the standee doesn't interfere with the staff's ability to work, it shouldn't be a problem. If he's sharing his treatment room with a mixture of Democrats and Republicans, I could see his life size standee potentially causing problems.

So a supply teacher wanders into the staff base. First thing he tells us is he knows nothing about science. Fair enough, no problem. He then proceeds to try to tell us all how the periodic table works. By us all I mean a room full of science teachers...

We had a 17 year old waitress last year explain to our 2 Michelin star chef the difference between high risk and low risk food. He replied with "Thank you for the basic food hygiene lesson."

The same waitress asked me why our pot washer used such hot water ..

"The hot water mixed with the detergent dissolves food off plates faster and more thoroughly"

.. the sassy little cow fixed me a look ..

"Do you explain that to all your staff?"

"No because no one else has been daft enough to ask me that before."

She's at Uni now studying law or something. I hope she doesn't come back on her break.

Reminds me of when I was standing next to a hotel, let's say the Salford Quays Hotel.

A man walked up to me and asked if I knew where the Salford Quays Hotel was.
I said 'Yeah, it's right over there!'

He looked at the sign, sighed and said 'That's the Holiday Inn Express Salford Quays Hotel.'
I said 'Yep, that's the place.' He replied 'No, that's the Holi-day Inn Exp-ress Sal-ford Quays Ho-tel', stressing each syllable to show me how wrong I was.

Realising I was talking to a moron, I walked off. Techy then arrived so the bloke started accosting him instead.
I said 'C'mon Techy, don't let him waste YOUR time as well!' and dragged him away.

The bloke's probably still there asking for directions to the hotel across the road.

Also, see a keen trainspotter conversing with a member of train crew, telling them 'I shouldn't use the terms 'up' and' down' lines to you because you won't understand them!'

('Up' in England means 'towards London' and 'down' means 'away from London'.)

I would have replied "What's a line?" ..

A bit like the old ( Max Miller ? ) joke: some body asked me where the other side of the road is, I said "it's over there" he said " I was just over there and some body told me it was over here" !

I used to love chip butties :dinner:
I had an idea where you could get a sausage but put it in a long sausage shaped bun and put ketchup and mustard on it, maybe even some fried onion as well but I couldn't think of a name for it so I fucked the idea off mate.

Yeah, that'd never catch on.

Techy bought some bizarre 'mushy peas burgers' a few years ago, made of, well, battered and deep-fried mushy peas. They arrived frozen. He cooked them like beef burgers.

Some crazy food visionary has designed an amazing new burger idea for Burger King although they're trial-ing it first, I can't see it catching on, it's too out there for me .. wow

In Australia, Burger King is called Hungry Jacks (for legal reasons) bur recently advertised on t.v is this similar wonder, the Cheesy Bacon Chip Butty:

I did that same thing (almost the same thing) when shopping at the local Safeway grocery store a couple months ago.

I asked one of the employee's if she could point out where the sour dough rye bread was. She said "It's right there." and using her finger to point at the bread less than a foot in front of me, I couldn't stop laughing at my own stupidity. :D
