Dumbing Down of America – Anecdotes

Parent Category: Culture Category: Education

 More Anecdotes on the subject of "Dumbing Down of America" are from the Internet.  These may be from some actual experiences of others yet they are very common.  Yes, I have seen similar scenarios myself:

ONE 
Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets.  I asked for a half dozen nuggets. 
'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter. 
'You don't?' I replied. 
'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply. 
'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 
'That's right.' 
So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets 
(Unbelievable but sadly true...)

TWO 

I was checking out at the local Walmart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 
'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed. 
After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it. 
Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?' 
I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.' 
She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left. 
She had no clue to what had just happened.

THREE

A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly. 
When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' 
(keep shuddering!!)

 FOUR 

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked. 
She replied, 'I knew I should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?' 
'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked. 
'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me.  As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....' 
PLEASE just lay down before you hurt yourself !!! 

FIVE

Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies. 
Brunette, by the way!!

Where do all of these idiots come from?  Why?  How?  Who?
I am old enough to remember when people like these were very uncommon.  Now, it is very common and getting worse.  It is not necessarily a teacher / school fault.  It is the quality of the child that is born in the beginning.  If you are born stupid you are not going to get any better.  The best of teachers and schools are not going to make a rocket scientists out of a low IQ.  If a dumb person has a child with another dumb person then there is a very high chance that their offspring is going to be dumb also.
