When my husband and I
arrived at our local Ford dealer to pick up our car, we were told the keys
had been locked in it.  We went to the service department and found a
mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's side door.  As I
watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and
discovered that it was unlocked.

'Hey,' I announced to the Mechanic, 'It's open.'
His reply, 'I know. I
already did that side.'

This was at the Ford dealership in St Albans, Hertfordshire UK.

She Doesn't Gets a Buzz
The stoplight on the corner
buzzes when it's safe to cross the street. I was crossing with an

light is red.

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

place for them to be crossing anymore."
