The spectrum of human expression is vast, and opinions vary greatly. What one person might consider the “dumbest” thing they’ve heard, another might view as a matter of perspective or misunderstanding. A user asked the forum, “What’s the dumbest thing you’ve heard someone say?”
Here are some responses he got!
“A new guy started at work. Just a regular guy; nothing unusual about him. This one idiot woman looked at him and said, “I don’t like that guy; he looks prejudiced. No amount of explanation could persuade her to see the irony.”
WANTED TO BE A GARBAGE MAN?
“I heard a guy say he wanted to be a garbage man because they have great pay (they do make crazy money) and they only have to work one day a week. He thought that since his trash was picked up once a week, that was all the fellas worked on”
“I told a friend that I was visiting family in Kansas. They laughed and asked where I was going. They thought I was just trying to say I was going somewhere far away. Because Kansas is a fictional place from that one movie (The Wizard of Oz).”

“My little brother’s girlfriend told us, with pride, that she screamed at her doctor for not diagnosing her with ADHD. She’s not a smart or nice lady.”

COMICAL SALAD INCIDENT
“A customer yelled at me for putting eggs on her salad. She told me she was lactose intolerant. So I naturally didn’t put cheese on the salad. But apparently, eggs in her mind were also of the lactose family, so I was trying to poison her.”
COLD WATER LEDS TO WEIGHT GAIN
“Warned us on a hot day not to drink too much ice water… Because it makes you fat.. just ice water, or cold water, though….I explained that no.. water can not make you fat, as water has no calories.
