They walk amongst us

Recently, when I went to  McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an  order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken Mc Nuggets.  
I asked  for a half dozen nuggets.
"We don't have half  dozen nuggets," said the teenager at the  counter.
 "You don't?"  I  replied.
 "We only have six, nine, or  twelve,"  was the reply.  
"So I can't order a  half dozen nuggets, but I can order  six?" 
"That's right." 
 So  I shook my head and ordered six  McNuggets. 
 (Unbelievable but sadly  true...)

 I  was checking out at the local Wal-Mart with just a few items  and the 
 lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of 
 those "dividers" that they  keep by the cash register and placed it between 
 our things so  they wouldn't get mixed.

 After the girl had  scanned all of my items, she picked up the
 "divider,"  looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it.

 Not finding the bar code, she said to  me,  "Do you know how much this is?" 
 I said to her  "I've changed  my mind; I don't think I'll buy that  today."
She said "OK," and  I paid her for the things and left.
She had no  clue to what had just  happened.

 A woman at  work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and 
 pulling it out very quickly.
When I inquired as  to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' 
( Keep shuddering!!) 

 I  recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her  car.
 "Do you need some help?"  I  asked.
She replied,  "I knew I should  have replaced the battery to this remote
door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a
distant convenience store) would  have a battery to fit  this?" 
"Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an  alarm, too?"  I asked.
 "No, just this remote  thingy," she answered, handing it and the car keys
  to me.  As I  took the key and manually unlocked the  door, I replied,  "
 Why don't you drive  over there and check about the batteries. It's a long
 walk.... " 
 Several  years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she
 was typing and turned to a secretary and said,  "I'm almost out of typing
 paper. What  do I  do?" "Just use paper from the photocopier," the
 secretary told her. 
With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it
on the photocopier and proceeded to make five "blank" copies.   
(Brunette, by the way!!) 
 A  mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to
 take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher
 tells her to give the  kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the  mother
 says,  "I just gave him some ant  killer...." 
 Dispatcher:   "Rush  him in to emergency!"
