How come all the hot girls are stupid?

Now I know people aren't this stupid and I know people say things and regret it, konk themselves on the head later and say, "Did I really say that?" So you have to give some people some slack. But if you say something that makes a blogger blow a blood vessel in her brain while trying to suppress uncontrollable laughter until she gets to the parking lot, it's gonna be blogged about. It pretty much has to be. Because if I sit on this conversation I had with a gas station cashier, let it just bounce around my head with no where to go, it might cause irreversible brain damage.
Conversation (Boy #3 is with me the whole time):

Cashier: Can I help you?
Me: Just these.
Cashier: That's $3.79.

Digging through my wallet, I find my money and a fist full of coffee cards.

Me: I think one of these cards is yours, is it this one?
Cashier: No.
Me: Huh, I thought this was the card for here.
Cashier, seriously, this is what she said: I can stamp it for you, I thought you were asking if it was mine personally.

At that time it was really a bad idea to make eye contact with Boy #3, but I did it anyway. And we really should have left the store immediately but I had to get my coffee card stamped. Sometimes if you raise your eyebrow really high and open your eyes really wide you can keep from laughing. And that's what I did.
Once in the parking lot though....... "Oh yeah this is your card, I've had it for a couple months now and thought you'd like it back."
"Why would she think you had her card? She doesn't even know you? How stupid was that?"
"Way stupid, Oh My God."
"How come all the hot girls are stupid?"
"Yeah, I saw you checking her out, don't bring stupid girls home to meet me okay? I'll come up with some kind of stupid girl test for you okay?"

I am so glad you told Boy #3 not to bring stupid girls home to you.

That is so funny. Sheesh!

Now hold on just one dang minute. If it weren't for pretty dumb girls I would have been a virgin on my wedding day. OK, well, at least they were all dumb.

For some reason the song "Stupid Girl" started raging in my head. BTW do you have my coffee card? Just asking...

I think it's something about working in gas stations - the fumes or something kills brain cells while you're there. When I was in high school I worked at one and once set off the silent alarm - and didn't even know it until the cops had a gun in my face. But I made the paper for it - picture and all!

I have an award for you at my blog.

maybe there should be a 'hot stupid girl' contest

Now I'm wondering whether you could have gotten her to stamp a card for you that wasn't to her store. :)

ReformingGeek - The poor kid never brings a girl home because he has two merciless older brothers. I have a feeling one day he will come home and say "Hey this is my wife."

Doug - Your poor mother.

Jamie - I carry several strangers coffee cards in my wallet.

Leigh - An award? For me? Two of them? Wow thank you.

Nooter - They have those every spring break in Florida.

Jenn - She probably would have stamped my Dry Cleaner receipt if I asked her to.

Just be glad she doesn't work at your doctor's office. (lol... sorry, I'm reading your posts backwards since this is the first time I've been here.)
