Is it Dementia or Aging? - Humorous Post

This was sent to me in an e-mail with no information about the original author. So, I'm sharing it with you.


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 reply.

'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

(Unbelievable but sadly true . . . )

(Must have been the same one I asked for sweetener, and she said they didn't have
any, only Splenda and Sugar.)


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.

(But the lady behind me had a big smirk on her face as I left)


A woman 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.'
(Keep shuddering!!!)


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 don't know.  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...'

PLEASE just lay down before you hurt

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 paper from the photocopier', 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.

Brunette, by the way!!!


A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the Emergency Room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine.  The mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......'

Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to the Emergency 
Room right now!'

Life is tough.  It's even tougher if you're
Someone had to remind me, so I'm
reminding you too.  Don't laugh . . . it is
all true . . .

heading towards 70!

I cannot stop laughing!! Nobody expects you to run...anywhere! Bwahahaha. I totally believe the first one with the half-dozen. Kids today can't even make change without the cash register telling them exactly how much to give people. It hurts my heart every time I see that. GAH!!! --Lisa

I'm glad you enjoyed this humorous post. It was fun poking fun at the young and seeing the truth in aging can still make you smile and laugh.

Lisa, I agree. It's sad to see how much these young kids don't know. They need a lesson on the basics.. of life!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a bloog that's both equally educative
and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.
The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking
intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across thhis in my search for something concerning this.
