Yes, There ARE Dumb Questions

Are we just getting sillier by the minute? I mean the country as a whole. Or maybe it's just the cross-section I deal with on a daily basis. Phone conversation I just finished up:

Me: May I speak with John Smith?
Female on the phone: He was supposed to leave at 4:00 but let me check if he's still here.

:::places me on hold:::

Female: Nope. He's gone for the day.
Me: OK, may I leave a message?
Female: Hold on.

:::places me on hold again:::

Male pics up: How can I help you?
Me: I was holding so I can leave a message for John Smith

:::gives him all my contact info:::

Male: want him to call you back?

:::crickets chirping:::

Me, in my head:

No. I want him to take the note and wipe his butt with it. Of COURSE I want him to call me back! Really? Are you really asking me this? Why do you think I'm leaving the message??

Honest to God. I simply CANNOT with people sometimes!

I love that you used my boy Antoine to illustrate your point. People are so dumb, forreal.
Btw now that I think about it doesn't he look like a Dr Seuss character?? :)
I'll be glad when November gets here, I think I'm going thru FBP withdrawal. Heehee.

Yeah, he's looking a little cartoon-ish in that photo. LOL! No one says it better than him, though!

I will be back in 11 days! And I'm sure there will be plenty of FBP foolery to catch up on.
