    At the post office, I needed to mail a letter but still needed to photocopy some of the stuff before sending it. So I handed it to the clerk to weigh, envelope on the bottom and the small stack of papers on top. I explained I just needed the stamp now and would mail it a bit later.

    "But it will weigh more once it's folded."

    Dumbstruck, I just stared at her and she repeated it. Then I said, no, it wouldn't because it would be exactly the same contents. Clearly, she did not believe me.

    She just shook her head and said something like, "Well, you'll see when it comes back postage due."

    What is the most inane thing you've been told?

    Any time you're going somewhere with a fishing pole in your hand: "Going fishing?" .... "No, I'm going to play softball."

    Any time I have on my bike gear - lycra, helmet, shoes - and am heading to where I keep my bike and my dad asks "What are you getting ready to do?" ... "What the hell does it look like?"

    A thread asking for the stupidest things people have said manages to spell stupidest wrong.

    Bought a T-shirt in New Orleans with a picture of the poster from the Beatles 1964 appearance in New Orleans on the front. Has the dates right on it. Was wearing it one day and a guy says, "Did you see the Beatles?" I had to resist the urge to kick him in the nuts before telling him I wasn't even two years old then.

    Had a PR girl for the local minor league basketball team talk about the league's mandate of having a black commentator to go with the team's usual guy... All day long.
    Then when the big meeting starts, the truth comes out, the league is talking about a color commentator.
    Boy is that girl dumb.
