1. Ron lives in a semi-rural area. He recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the Deer crossing sign on our road. The reason: "too many deer were being hit by cars" and he didn't want them to cross there anymore. 2. I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, "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 smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask." 3. The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. Ben was crossing with an intellectually challenged coworker of his when she asked if he knew what the buzzer was for. Ben explained that it signals blind people when the light is red. Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are blind people doing driving?!" 4. At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear coworker who was leaving the company due to "downsizing," our manager commented cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this more often." Not a word was spoken. We all just looked at each other with that deer-in-the-headlights stare. 5. When Kelly’s husband and she arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up their car, they were told the keys had been locked in it. They went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As Kelly watched from the passenger side, she instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," she announced to the technician, "it's open!" To which he replied, "I know - I already got that side."
