Have you ever asked a dumb question? I have to admit that I have. On my last trip out of town, I had to make a bank deposit in Virginia. For some reason, out of my mouth came, “Can I deposit here in Virginia even though I live in Florida?” I bank with a national bank and I knew the answer, but I still asked it anyway. Without skipping a beat, the teller said, “No, we only accept Virginia money.” I felt dumb. I laughed. She looked at me and thought I was dumb. I had asked the question and knew the answer, but had asked it anyway!
Have you ever asked a dumb question? Here are some questions you may have asked…
[From ‘things to ponder’ widget from iGoogle]
Do little angels have car seats in their chariots in Heaven?
Do they have reserved parking for non-handicap people at the Special Olympics?
If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?
Why do they call it quicksand when it sucks you down slowly?
Where do forest rangers go to get away from it all?
What was the best thing before sliced bread?
Since light travels faster than sound, isn’t that why some people appear bright until you hear them speak?
