In a recent subreddit, the late, great George Carlin was quoted: "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that." From there, people offered their own experiences with folks who were slightly misguided in their thought process. Here are a few interesting examples that might make you weep for humanity.

    He Was 'Collecting' Sunlight With His Eyes

    Posted by Redditor /u/OscarDivine:

    I'm a physician. Eye doctor specifically. I will tell you that the longer I work (now 15 years), my standard for the "average" person continues to decline. Case in point: Thanks to the awful information filtering out there, I had a patient just last week who read that Vitamin D helps you resist a Coronavirus infection. Well, he had also read that you can get more Vitamin D by getting more sun. So he wanted to "collect" as much light as possible with his eyes. As a result, he stared at the sun for a solid 60 seconds and burned holes directly into his retinas permanently reducing his vision with no chance at future improvement.

      Egg Head

      Posted by Redditor /u/Stonewall5101:

      I just had a customer yell at me for putting their eggs in a separate bag, saying they don’t want all those bags and the paper ones always rip. Before putting it in the bag and throwing a pound of flour on top...

      It was somewhat satisfying seeing their face as we heard the cracks, until I realized I’m the one who needed to clean it up. Oh also she complained that we hadn’t warned her about the fragility of eggs.

      'Chicken Is NOT Meat'

      Posted by Redditor /u/Toomanyplantfriends:

      I used to manage a retail store that sold teen clothing, so as expected, I primarily had teens working for me.

      One employee came to the back room while I was on break and asked what I was eating. Somehow the topic turned to how I should’ve brought chicken for lunch because she wanted chicken. I told her I was vegetarian and therefore don’t eat meat...

      She tells me chicken is NOT meat. It’s “poultry,” and vegetarians can eat poultry? She said at the grocery store the aisles list “meat” and “poultry” separately so they’re obviously different. We argued for a couple of minutes before I finally told her to go back to the sales floor. She didn’t last at the job long, but damn.
