A Question to Guys on the Street

Let me set the scene for you.

It's 80 degrees outside. I'm riding in my car with the windows down. I stop at a red light (because I do not need another ticket...but that's another story entirely!) and standing on the corner are a couple of guys who look like they are on their lunch break from the construction site up the street. They are filthly, covered with dirt and concrete dust, and obviously not too concerned about the odor waifting in my general direction.

Then, I hear this: "Hey baby! [insert annoyingly, gross smooching sounds here] Wanna get with me?"

Now...what I want to know is - why? Did they think I was going to pull my car over to the side of the road, get out and say "Yes, you big, hulking group of nasty sex monkeys! Right here, right now on the hood of my car!"......?! I mean, come on.

Now, I understand that stupidity runs rampant in the world and as I recently reminded myself and a couple of other people, the "average" IQ of the "average" American falls between 85 & 110 and 85 is borderline retarded. I'm not sure what the IQs of those silver-tongued romeos are but, I can pretty much guarantee they're not getting any invites to appear on Jeapordy.

  1. You've missed the boat entirely. It's not a question of IQ at all. All men are stupid. Except me, my intelligence only exceeded by my great humility.
