Dumbest question today (and trust me, there have been a LOT of them):

(While standing in front of the meeting rooms)
"Excuse me miss, which room is the (Company's Name) meeting in?"

"It's in the one with the sign on the door that says (Company's Name)."


mgc 7/27/2006 12:30:00 PM, excuse me, can you tell me where the restroom is?

Kind of like saying "Scuse me, where is the bathroom scale?"

KassyK 7/27/2006 01:36:00 PM  

HAHAHA. Its like when people call me and this is the convo:

Good morning, Kassy @ Blah blah Company.

Is this the blah blah company?

D'oh you moron...I just said it is. Argh.

tara- I know, right?

kassy- the stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me.

sammy- tyson's mall. right next to barnes & noble.

needtsza- exactly. one of my favorite movies ever. love the part when the guy says "do you have that movie with that guy. he was in that other movie?"
my favorite line: "this job would be great if it wasn't for the fucking customers."

When I'm working at the bar my three favourtie questions are:

1. Do you have a coat check (I'm the coat check girl and I sit in a tiny room surrounded by coats...let's put 2 + 2 together)

2. Do you have a washroom (Uh, no. We've decided to forgo the building code. We encourage people to squat outside)

3. How much is coat check? Oh, I only have a $20, do you have change (Nope, we're kinda like a payphone. We'll take your money but we don't provide change)

Depending on how far into the night it is, I'll usually give people a snappy answer. Most are too embarrassed to complain...

what? he didn't even preface his comment with a "i know this is a dumb question, but..." what. a. jerk. =;-)

There's no such thing as a dumb question. Just dumb people asking questions that come naturally to them.

Also, if you get caught laughing at such a person, you can reassure them with "We're not laughing at you, we're laughing near you."j

Did this person give you a look after you answered the question?
