i also get very cross on a daily basis, when people who know me, who know i'm a fire fighter etc etc, say too me at work, "oh you can't lift that its too heavy", often when i actually have sack of coal/birdnuts/tatties already easily balanced on my head... er yes i am doing, do i look like its difficult ?

so what the feck to they think i do in the brigade? make the coffee while the 'men' haul the people out o burning buildings?

SO, when a delivery comes in at work, we're supposed to have two people there for safety reasons and quicker unloading. I go out there to help the other guy unload, but then the duty manager pops up and whisks him away, leaving me on me tod. Fine, I think, I can do it myself easily, not my problem if the duty manager woman supersedes company policy. Of course she comes out ten minutes later and asks me why I'm not wearing my yellow coat, then fucks off again... so just who out of all of us is more against our precious company policy, huh bitch? ARGH!

All the time - "Do you do glass?"
They ask this of someone in a warehouse with a ten foot sign with the word 'glazing' on it.
Who's standing in front of several thousand sheets of glass.
And cutting glass at the time.
In front of them.

And someone who once worked with me asked about Ozzy Osbourne - the one from Bo Selecta:
"Are them his real arms?"

Couple of gems from my co-worker:

Those cossacks don't come cheap.

You must be careful with your bodily fluids these days.

Did your co-worker ever star in Doctor Strangelove ?

"What's so fair about Fair Trade bananas? They cost more, they're smaller and don't last as long. Doesn't seem very fair to me."

"Of course my work's better than yours- I did it on a Mac, not a PC".

I get this a lot from a couple of people who simply cannot draw that well.  No matter what equipment they're using.

Pffft...

It was a stupid statement becuase this is a thread about stupid things people have said to you. The bananas thing is what someone said to me. Hence my contribution to this thread.

We - being liberated free-thinking superior beings - all know that the "fair" refers to the monies the farmers get, and that's why it was stupid of them to say it.

If the thread had have been entitled "Stupid things you believe" and I'd have posted that, then your rebuke would have been valid.

And no - I don't buy any newspaper that isn't printed on organic, sustainable recycled hemp, through a printing press using totally animal-ingredient free ink, and manned by Union workers on 10% more than minimum wage.

I'm more left-wing than Ryan Giggs, me.

whoops my bad, didn't spot the quote marks :(, just what was said would have worked (in an idiotic rightwinged viewed way) If the idiot thought labeling fair trade goods fair trade was a stupid thing.

Sorry I thought you were a right wing selfish dick, I need new glasses me. In my experience fair trade 'nanas taste better anyway
