senseless acts of stupidity...

Today I had 2 seperate instances that made me give pause and think "what the fuck are these people doing??" within 20 minutes of each other.

First, and this isn't the only time i've run across the 'guy trying to take out a home loan at the drive up ATM.'

This particular bank is one of the new smart ones who have 2 drive up ATM's, one behind the other and luckily a wide enough path to drive around dumbass #1.

So I pull up behind the line of cars and car #1 pulls away and our hero of the day at the back ATM pulls up to the front ATM and proceeds to continue his transaction there. Now, I can't imagine why he thought he would have access to more money at the front machine but that didn't stop him from trying.
Why is it that some people take 5 minutes at the ATM?? I can pull up, get out my wallet and card, get out my money in Spanish (and I neither speak or read much spanish but I know where the options are!) in less than a me i've done it just for giggles.


After that I went to a fast food joint..lets just say it will henceforth be known as 'king of spain' burger.

I go inside because I hate drive thru's and having just been in ATM hell i had to do it. I order something fairly simple and some yummy cheesecake slices.
They give me my order and I ask for a couple plastic forks "Huh?" the spanglish princess replies.
FORKS!..yeah I was annoyed by this point. "OOOH!" she says and then mentions "thats ...(something) in spanish!"

Annnnd I care why? As previously stated I don't know spanish more than just the little i've picked up in my years in Florida.

The kicker is this. I get out to my van and look in the bag...she gave me SPOONS! I can get by with spoons but you'd think with the very idea she had to correct my spanish on el forkita's or whatever she could have at least given me some!

Apparently Taco Hell wasnt hiring when she was looking for a job.

Oy Vey!

heh heh

el forkita's? How funny.

But, on a serious note; WHY IN THE FRICK DO YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR A FRICKING FORK IN SPANISH, (in order to be understood)? Last time I looked, this is the USA, not Mexico...

Damn. That irritates me to the nth degree...
