The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an intellectually challenged 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
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to 'downsizing,'

This was a lunch at Texas Instruments.
I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself

A deputy with the Dallas County Sheriffs office, no less.

This child attends a school in Kansas City, Mo.
Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her name wrong.
It's pronounced "Ledasha".

SO, if you see something come across your desk like this please remember to pronounce the dash.
If dey axe you why, tell dem de dash don't be silent.

so we sane folks go to TBD for some true inspiration......
The county roads (some dirt - some paved) used to have names; now they have numbers and no one knows what the written directions mean. Same "progress".
I'm buckled up in stitches here......lol
My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard an admin girl talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the beach.
