Last night I talked to perhaps the most ignorant person on the phone I ever have.
She called me to ask about how getting bonded out works, & I gladly explained the process. She then told me the tale of her son, who had been arrested on a warrant stemming from causing a class room disturbance. I listened attentively, & eventually she finished. Then she said I have a question for you. I said O.K.,so what's your question?
She said, I didn't know you could get arrested for a class room disturbance. I said so what's your question? & she said I didn't know you could be arrested for a class room disturbance
I said O.K., so what's your question? I didn't know you could get arrested for a class room disturbance.
I said ma'am, that's a statement about what you didn't know, what is your question? She says, I didn't know you could get arrested for a class room disturbance. I said well I guess you can. She said ok.
Call all done.

Good one. I love it when someone [b]asks[/b] if they can ask me a question... Them: "Can I ask you a question?" Me (without hesitation): "You just did." Them: blank expression, followed by either humor or disgust...

I don't have the energy to deal with the grammar. Hope that helps. [}:)]

There are no stupid questions. Just a world filled with inquisitive idiots.

Thaat's like when you go into a restaurant and when the Hostess asks "Are you all together?" and you look at your belly, pat your pockets and thighs and say "I hope so. Does it look like I'm missing something?"

There are no stupid questions. Only stupid people who ask questions.

Scene: post office JScott: "I need to mail this package" Clerk: "Does it contain anything breakable, flammable or perishable?" JScott: "Nah. I like to keep all the fun stuff for myself." Clerk: JScott: "That means 'no'" Clerk: "Do you need delivery confirmation or insurance?" Sheesh, after processing 15 gazillion Christmas packages you'd think they'd appreciate a little humor. JScott

You left out the best part. They usually follow up with "Can I ask you another ??" At which point I say "That's two."

It's [b]GRAMMAR[/b], not gramar.[:D] Also, you don't need a comma in your title (after the word "spelling"). Hey, you asked for it.

Look on the bright side. Somebody finally got busted for causing a classroom disturbance.

What classroom was disturbed? Grammar class?

How about at a restaurant when the waitron asks, "How does it taste?" "Um, like food. Duh."
