Did you seriously just ask me that?

I was reading Maxie's post today and it made me want to share a similar experience...

I was working with another company at the time and my position required me to be the sales beeotch. All the salesmen would walk in and ask me stupid technology questions and to do stuff like send out their mail. Almost everything short of ironing their whitey tightys.

Our company had just opened a second branch in New Jersey and promoted one of those sales reps to be the GENERAL MANAGER. This guys first day on the job as GM calls me up and asks me what this button is for;




Overpaid Idiot GM: Hello Heather, you know that floppy disk picture in Microsoft Word?

Me: Yeah....

Overpaid Idiot GM: What does that do?

Me: Did you seriously just ask me that?



GM folks...GM....


Okay, I know you all have some of these stories....share!!!
