    There are people worse off than us. Right?!

    I just found this... and couldn't pass up adding it!!

    I wonder.... if they could have BAD BRAIN FOG?


    Title:

    How do these people survive?


    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 r eply. "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

    TWO I was checking out at the local Wal-Mart 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 lady 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."

    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 dunno. 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."

    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 copier machine paper," 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.

    SIX A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid was eating ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and should be fine, the mother says, I just gave him some ant killer..... Dispatcher: Rush him in to emergency!

    Life is tough...

    I received it from a SIL that is so out of tune with my health issues. She is always saying, "are you feeling better now?" I have just give up trying to explain it to her.

    I did send her a message saying..... maybe these people have SEROIUS BRAIN FOG.

    I will tell you....I have done some nutty things since I have been in this condition!!
    Has anyone lost their car in parking lot? I mean.....really lost it?

    I have walked for what seemed like a hour looking...SO embarrassed! And, then I pass the same people... and they just look at me strangely!!

    I have almost panicked before!

    I'm laughing so hard I'm crying!


    Here's another:

    My husbandisa pediatrician, and when he is on call he always gets at least one call about a rash from some frightened parent. Of course, there is no way to determine the type of rash over the phone, it must be seen in person. One time it was a friend of ours who knows my husband's dry sense of humor but.... he said to her, "put the baby up to the phone so I can see the rash." He here's some fumbling of the phone, and then our friend came back on the line, and said, "ok, what kind of rash is it?" lol
