Are there different degrees of stupidity.

I refer to those that know nothing about their jobs so say anything that comes to mind. The chemist that can never get the prescription right no matter how many times explained or those that buy highpowered cars that they can't afford and then try to see how much smoke they can make by burning the tyres.

One assumes that it's the Chemist who has aroused your ire?

I sometimes get letters with a completely different surname [not mine] and also a different street number [not mine] delivered by the postman. I can understand that they are always in a hurry and can make mistakes occasionally but I don't consider them stupid.

... a bigger, brighter nameplate on my outside door might be the answer.

Chemists normally provide whatever it is that the GP has prescribed. I can't see any connection with people who buy high-powered cars.

Won't make a lot of difference. Royal Mail failed to deliver a parcel and their excuse was that they "couldn't find my address". My house is directly behind the roadside street name sign and I have one of those modern house number signs with both the number and street name on it. I suggested that the van drivers be supplied with an A TO Z

I often get a call from the Tesco delivery driver saying " I'm outside your house but no-one is answering the door". He's normally outside a house with the same number in a different road. This is usually because the Multi purpose handheld (Phone,Satnav,etc.) which they use has some serious operational problems according to the drivers

Same here. New delivery drivers always end up at the other end of the village because the sat nav says that is where my post code is. Am now waiting for a correctly addressed parcel to be redelivered by DHL. Fingers crossed.

I was refering to those that can't afford it no greedy phamacists on £200K a year.

Standing outside the gorilla enclosure while beating your chest and howling is a bit stupid. Standing inside the gorilla enclosure while beating your chest and howling is incredibly stupid. Do I win a fiver?

No. But you win a prize for the most coherent answer.

A banana.

The chemist asked if I would complete a survey.

One question was how many units of alcohol I consumed in a week. I asked what a unit of alcohol represented in terms of pints of beer, glasses of wine etc. She didn't know but guessed at one unit being a pint of beer.

(It's actually nearer three)
