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?"

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

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

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?
