The Deterioration Of Human Speech: A Disturbing Trend


We frequently come across stories of people expressing how their faith in humanity has been rekindled. Such occurrences are heartening since they are quite rare.

These concise stories narrate the current times we live in. While they may be brief, they have a profound impact, shedding light on situations that not only fail to bolster our faith in humanity but also dismantle it.

You're in for a good laugh with the following stories. Not only are they utterly ridiculous, but they might actually be true, and chances are, you've witnessed similar situations yourself.


Confusion At McDonald's

My husband and I drove up to the McDonald's drive-thru window, and I handed the cashier a $5 bill.

Our total came to $4.25, so I handed her an additional 25 cents.

She said, "You gave me too much money."

I said, "Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back."

Upon receiving the 25 cents, the cashier sighed and went to fetch the manager, who then asked me to reiterate my request.


I complied with the manager's request, and he returned the 25 cents to me saying, "We're sorry but we don't do that kind of thing."

Subsequently, the cashier handed me 75 cents as my change.

Please avoid confusing the staff at McDonald's.

Garage Door Math

We needed to get the garage door fixed.

The repairman informed us that one of our issues was having an insufficiently 'large' motor on the opener.


After pondering for a moment, I responded, stating that we had the most substantial one available at that time, a 1/2 horsepower motor.

He shook his head in response and said, "You need a 1/4 horsepower."

I countered by explaining that 1/2 was indeed larger than 1/4, to which he replied, "NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two."

Ever since that incident, we haven't employed the services of that repairman again.


Not The Best Crossing For Deers

I reside in a semi-rural locality.

Not long ago, a new neighbor contacted the local city council office and asked them to remove the DEER CROSSING sign from our road.

The reason: "Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore."

Salad Type Unavailable

My daughter visited a Mexican fast-food establishment and ordered a taco.


She requested the person behind the counter to add only a small amount of lettuce to her order.

He apologized, mentioning that they only had iceberg lettuce available.

Knowing The Unknown

While I was at the airport, in the process of checking in at the gate, an airport employee inquired, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?"


To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?"

He responded with a knowing smile and a nod, "That's why we ask."

Blind People Driving

The pedestrian light on the corner emits a beeping sound to indicate it's safe to cross the street.

I was crossing the street with a co-worker of mine who had an intellectual disability.


She inquired if I knew the purpose of the beeping sound.

I clarified that the beeping sound is used to signal visually impaired individuals when the light turns red.

Appalled, she responded, 'What on earth are blind people doing driving?!'

She works as a government employee...

That Side Is Already Open

Upon reaching the car dealership to collect our vehicle after servicing, we were informed that the keys had been accidentally locked inside the car.


We headed to the service department and discovered a mechanic working diligently to unlock the driver's side door.

As I observed from the passenger side, I instinctively attempted the door handle and to my surprise, found that it was unlocked.

"Hey," I announced to the technician, "it's open!"

His reply was, "I know. I already did that side."
