Last clown I worked for...I am still not sure who tied his shoelaces.

Fight fire, save lives, laugh in the face of danger.

Had a lead guy convinced (briefly) that we should invest in a ratcheting open end hex wrench for a particular task. laugh


Critical thinking not needed.

Haven't read all of the responses - have we heard from the self-employed?


Not a real member - just an ordinary guy who appreciates being able to hang around and say something once in awhile.

Happily Trapped In the Past (Thanks, Joe)

Not only a less than minimally educated person, but stupid and out of touch as well.

I saw a video of some dumb kid holding up a bucket to catch the sparks from a welding job. They told him they needed to recycle the sparks.

Obey lawful commands. Problem solved.

Probably just a good employee doing what he’s told. I’ll take a kid who does exactly what I tell him to rather than a kid who thinks he knows it all.

I currently work with a few “dumb” folks. I’ll happily take them on my crew over the lazy ones.


Yup.

I went to high school with this girl that was a knockout, but not overly bright. She asked a classmate if their farm raised "white meat or dark meat chickens".


Now with even more aplomb

I worked as an Electronic Technician in a department that had a large computer room full of mainframe computers, disk drives, & 9 track reel to reel tape drives and such. Once we had a power outage and everyone is sitting around waiting for the power to come back on. After about 1/2 hour of sitting in the dark, this clueless gal comes into the tech lab to report that her tape drive won't work. As Bill Engvall would say, Here's your sign!

I knew a young lady, high school grad in Florida, who asked me in all seriousness "what state is Conn. in?"
I just walked away.

My dad was talking with some of his coworkers in the lunchroom and they were talking about how the two day doe season in PENN went for them. My dad said he saw a couple but didnt get any shots and on the way out of the woods he stepped in a ground hog hole and his ankle was hurting him a little but he was ok. One of the young guys then asked him, "Did you get your foot out of the hole?" My dad replied, "No I left it in there"
His other coworkers burst out laughing, the young guy just sat there and didnt realize they were all laughing at him
