My geography lesson for the day . . .

She was staggering down the sidewalk with an open beer next to her equally attractive sorority sister. They were both approaching a busy intersection close where the big game was close to being over. I stopped them, trying to shoo them home. The drunker of the two informs me that she's 24, so she can be drunk in public. She's kind of a *****. Weird.

I get her Arizona ID, she's only 21, but so drunk that could be drunk-ass math. I ask them to call someone for a ride. I'm told no, they can do what they want. I run the ID - it's not on file. Hmm. Probably a fake.

"Is this fake?"

"No."

"Where you from?" - thinking city.

"Virginia."

"Why do you have an Arizona license?"

"They're right next to each other, so I just went to Arizona to get my license."

She was dead serious. I don't know if it was the alcohol talking or just the fact she was a blonde. I couldn't stop giggling the rest of the contact - even after she took the ride in. Not sure why that tickled me so much, but the scene from the Simpson's movie popped into my head. "You can see the four states the border Springfield: Ohio, Nevada, Main and Kentucky."

Some people are hilarious and have no idea.

Knowing how little geography is taught in high school, that may be all she needed to know to pass the class.

She might as well be from Arizona. We have some blindingly stupid residents here.

My wife was studying for a test one evening and her father had been asking her questions to see what she knew. He asked her who fought the civil war. He came unglued when she said "The North and Japan."

Also in the realm of geography, we had a drunk male trying to get into our office tonight thinking it was his house. It was later determined that he lived in a different city, about 10 miles away. The good news is that trip to the jail to sleep in off was very short.

You just can't make this stuff up.

A few weeks ago a woman calls asking if she is required to report to the police a car accident. So I explained that if damages are less than $1000 and as long she and the other party have exchanged DL, insurance, etc... they can self-report directly to DMV. Then I asked, so when and where did this accident happen exactly? She replied "last week" and something like "I'm in Michigan."

So I said, OK, did the accident happen while you were visiting [my state]? Or was the other car registered in [my state]? No. No.

I then informed her that from where I'm at, Michigan is about five states that-a-way.

It's the younger generation. I had an 18 year old once tell me that the Speak of the House was the show "House". Also, that the show "Leave it to Beaver" was "The Little Beaver". I couldn't stop laughing when a guy I worked with said he thought he say that show on late night HBO.

Probably understated, but quite so.

However, should they ever start doing brain transplants there may be some out there in remarkably new condition; provided they have not been chemically abused.

Brain donor by the name of Abby Normal? No thanks.
