Idiot Of The Week

11/11/11 -- I used to work for a feed company where the boss's son was deployed as a rep out on the road. The guy had a heart of gold but wasn't the brightest biscuit in the barrel if you know what I mean.

He rang me in the office one day: "I need a price for 10 tonnes of sugar beet pellets."

"OK, where's the farmer?" I enquire, as I obviously need to know which county he's in to calculate a delivered price.

"He's right here next to me" the muppet replies.

"No, I mean where does he live?"

"In the farmhouse of course" comes the reply as if I must be some sort of idiot not to know that particular piece of information.

Some will think that I've made that up, but I haven't.
