Good one, dude

Today, I started my new job as a mail carrier. One of my assigned roads was Milbrooke Street, which I'd never heard of. After driving around for ages trying to find it, I called for directions. The street doesn't exist in my city; it's just the boss's way of seeing how stupid you are. FML

Lol,. In the army they'll have new privates fresh out of basic, to get a sample of exhaust fumes from the humvees,. Needless to say, there have been quite a few who would go outside with a trash bag and and attempt to complete assigned mission

I look at this not so much as a stupidity test as an ingenuity test. Anyone doing their job as prescribed would be stumped by this, at Lear for a moment, the proving point is how they handle the adversity. It's not stupid to think the person above you on the ladder did their job properly.

Exactly. Not knowing doesn't make you stupid, just ignorant.

OTOH, fooling around the city for ages instead of asking when you don't know, now that's stupid.

Did you, oh I don't know, consult a map? No, you obviously thought driving around like an idiot, then calling your boss like an idiot, would be a better idea. Know what that makes you?

Relax, #12. Guess you never had a delivery job.

Sometimes street signs are stolen, maps are old or just incorrect, GPS loses signal or isn't updated. It happens... And when it does, who wouldn't call around to figure it out?
