What a credit card, debit card, gift card, etc.

My friend said wow you can buy this stuff with this piece of plastic?

And then I had to explain what it was.

In the end he was still confused and I said WTF I give up on you go ask your parents or something.

He said my parents don't have this piece of plastic they only use dollar bills.

Then in my head I was like laughing so hard.

My friend and I were having a conversation and I told her that I was going to Vietnam.
She asked me "What's that? Isn't that the army or something?"

I laughed at her a little and just told her it is a country.

At least she asked me what it was and didn't keep her ignorance.

I used to bring a waterbottle to practise where I had pre-frozen half of the water then filled the rest up just before leaving my house, so it was 50/50 Frozen and normal water. I noticed a friend of mine staring at my bottle and when I asked about it he said: How the hell do you get the ice into the bottle?! I don't get it! - The room went quiet and everyone was just waiting for him rethink what he just said.

Ended up having to explain that I filled it half-way with water, and put it in the freezer.

Then he said: Yea, but why is the rest of it not frozen?

And again the room went quiet, as I told him that I filled the rest up after.

He went quiet for a few seconds with an ponderous look on his face before going : aaaah! Now I get it!

And he was a straight A student.. He's never lived that one down, I expect he never will.

We all know that there are many dumb ppl in this world, but there are some who take the cake.....


4 example: i had to explain to my friend that just because u use a credit card doesn`t mean ur stuff is automaticly paid...i explained that she will have to pay it later lol, she thought it was free money or something...and she was 19 yrs old




I keep having to explain that words like 'you' and 'for' are spelled with three characters, not one. Really how hard can two extra keystrokes be?

Hah, that's surprisingly relevant to the thread. I too, hate having to explain grammar to people, even though I'm meant to be foreign and everything

I had to explain that snow doesn't get heavier when it's melting.

Not that it is very stupid... I can see how people can assume wrongly in this case.

(Oh and I too agree on the 'for' and 'you' points above.)

sorry. extremely bad spelling and grammar (as opposed to forgetting a bit of punctuation or leaving a participle dangling) makes the poster look dumb. Something I found Ironic about this thread.

I worked at a fabric shop and had to explain to a woman that permanent fabric paint is permanent; it will not wash off in the laundry (which she thought it would).

I had to explain a blonde joke to somebody once. Really.

I also have had to explain that there was a difference between 'you're' and 'your' to someone who did not know the difference.

I told my younger sister that searching 'what r u if u study plants' in google was not a good idea & that she needed to stop using text lingo on her school papers.

I had to explain to my mother, who is 45 , how to use iTunes because she's got memory issues & doesn't even ever remember ever using iTunes. Ugh.

I had to explain to my 83 year old grandmother what an iPod was. The discussion lasted like 3 hours.

I also was trying to teach a little 2 year old girl I babysat once how to blow bubbles.
