Where do these idiots come from?

Where do these idiots come from?
My SO is working from home. She works at one of the larger marinas. (We had to get Viacom internet so she could telecommute) They also call-forwarded the main phone line to our home phone. Consequently she is acting as the defacto receptionist. (Not her usual job)

She just had one idiot call that said "with the price of fuel down - I would like to prepay for the season"..

Seriously? You want to pay for hundred of gallons of boat gas now - and we store it till you need it?


Try that at your local gas station... See how it goes over.

Somehow this doesn't surprise me.

Need to ask next time I go to the gas station if I can get a pre-paid gas card that figures gallons and not dollars per gallon. I can imagine the look the grumpy guy at the kiosk would give me.

My wife deals with idiots on a regular basis (not counting me). Like the man who came into the shop and wanted 20% off an antique tantalus because he saw the same thing at a shop in Wellington for that price.

Ellen suggested he make the 10 hour drive to Wellington and save a packet.

LOL, I guess they saw the negative price and didn't realize that this was a storage debt.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
