I was standing in line at the customer service counter at Walmart recently and the person in front of me was sending money to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
After about 5 minutes of the employee shaking her head and giving the computer defiant looks a manager came over to help.
He gave the employee a surprised look, and said "It's not an out of country transfer. Don't you know that New Mexico is in the United States?".
She said, "I don't need to know geographics. Mexico is Mexico, who cares how old it is".
Also, the other day a person on this forum was pretending to be knowledgeable about a certain court case and said that a certain defendant couldn't have been proven to be lying in court because they were never put on the witness stand.
I'm pretty sure they were getting lying and a charge of perjury confused. You know, complicated legal stuff. They shall remain nameless.
Also a true story

Fiance called Radio Shack:
Fiance: Do you have anymore HTC EVO V 4g's?
Radio Shack: I'm sorry, all I see is the HTC EVO 5 4g
Guy read V as the Roman Numeral. my fiance just said "OK thanks." Hung up the phone and just shook her head then told me what happened. We go down and I grabbed the phone and asked the two guy's:
Me: Are you the only two that have been here today?
Me: *holding up the phone* My fiance just called asking if you had these.
Guy 1: *Nods with a smaile* That was me.
Me: *holding it close to his face* You were asked if you had HTC EVO V 4g's in and you said no, but you had the HTC EVO 5 4g.
Guy 1: *Confused look on his face* Yeah?
Guy 2; *looking at Guy 1* Are you f***ing kidding me? *Cracks up*
Me: *Staring at Guy 1* Take a close look at the name of the phone and I hope to God you realize how funny and a little sad this is.
Guy 1 just walks away to the backroom after about 30 seconds of staring at the box. Comes out in regular clothes and all he has to say is "I need a drink". Dude still works there and if I walk by and see him through the window I just shake my head at him. He never actually admitted that he realized his mistake, but got to assume he did and won't own it lol
Another one. I used to work at a store called "Super 99 Center" years and years ago. Everything 99 cents. Nothing more. Nothing less. Every single freaking day there's was always the one person: "How much is this?". Felt Like Dante from "Clerks". Those people WILL drive you nuts. Signs all over the place and they still asked. The amount of people who pay ZERO attention to their surroundings amazes me.
