  1. I recently started at a new job, and on the first day of course they asked to fill out contact info and a basic background check form (normal stuff).
    The other guy starting the same day as me decided to make a big joke out of it, writing "Home Rd" as his address, "idonthaveanemail@hotmail.com", everything, while giggling to himself (which, before we knew exactly why, was disconcerting on its own). When the recruiter got him to cooperate he legitimately didn't know his current or previous home addresses, nor his own cell phone number, and neglected to bring any one of the identification pieces we were told we'd need.

    During training he was worse, cutting off our supervisors as they were explaining things, but then asking some really awful questions about what they just had tried to say... constant complaining, way too much informality, lack of respect..

    Guy had pretty much zero common sense, it hurt to be in the same room as him even. Needless to say, he was let go by day 3.

  4. I was on a trip up north kind of near Kinmount, Ontario. I was checking out a book at the local bookstore and was chatting with the cashier. He was probably in his mid forties. At the time the tsunami had just hit Japan. Anyway, he proceeded to tell me how bad he felt about "those people in China who were hit by the big tasami." Nice enough guy, but I started to wonder why a guy who clearly doesn't read was working at a bookstore.

    1. Omg- why even bother posting this after #1's response? This guy seems like he just saw images of the people and saw them as Chinese because that's more common to do than you think and he probably wasn't paying full attention to the story. That's only kinda stupid. #1's person is probably what OP was looking for.
