Taking about nightshift premiums and I asked "Is it time and a third?" Response was "No, It's more than that, it's time and a quarter".

On a different forum someone asked..... when you buy an 80GB HDD you only get 74GB on it?

The top answer was:

"Because disks are round and not square. If they were square they could fit exact numbers on but they (manufacturers) just average up the number on the round disks."

What daft ones have you heard/read recently?

Well when universities are dropping maths and sciences courses, due to lack of interest in them,what do you expect? At least the second answer recognized that disks were round.

IT Dept : Right click on the screen.
Customer : Just a moment
(after a short delay)
IT Dept : What's happened?
Customer : nothing
IT Dept : what did you do?
Customer : I wrote "Click" on the screen . . . .

What's wrong with that?

Absolutely nothing - it makes perfect sense.

Covergirl and dagnammit

ID 10 T failure.




Overheard at a birthday party:

"Oh so you have a twin sister, when is her birthday?"

I once went out with a girl who asked me, "how many feet are there in a foot??"

She was no longer my girlfriend from that momment on :(.

The lady who went mad because the workmen had not put the child-proof covers back into the electric sockets.

All the electricity had leaked out overnight and she would have to pay for it.:0(

The person at a supermarket meat counter who - when asked by a customer what cut of beef she was pointing at - asked her supervisor "What part of a cow is a beef?".

When I was working in the factory the main drive sprocket on a peice of machinery broke, on explaining this to the production supervisor, that the plant could not run unless we could find a spare he said "well it will just have to run without it".
