I thought it was time to start a fresh thread for tales of stupid people we've encountered. This one is pretty general, so it can be about anyone, really.
Here's mine for today:
One of the ad reps came up to the front desk and was looking at the in/out board. He was looking for the IT guy, whose office is right next to the front desk.
He looks at me and asks, "Is he coming in today."
I said, "No, he's out" I pointed to the note next to the IT guy's name in the "comments" section of the in/out board. It reads: OUT 2 & 3 AUGUST 2007.
He says, "Okay... but later today?"
I replied, "No, he's OUT" and pointed to the board again.
Then he says, "I know he's out but will he be in later today?"
One more time, "He's OUT. OUT out!!" And then I point to the board again.
Then he goes, "Oh, I'm supposed to read the whole thing?"
He gets the t-shirt for the day.
