I’m sure you don’t, either. Idiots clog up our lives with spam, lies (hah! remember, only sometimes are lies useful or acceptable), stupid questions, inane conversation and lack of general common sense.
If you ask me a question you can easily google, you’re an idiot. If you don’t know how to properly use Google by now (look up BOOLEAN or click on Google Help), then you’re really an idiot. Or just a Luddite. (Hint: Use quotes around your search query. If you have several query terms, put a plus sign in front of each.)
I’ve fielded my share of idiot calls from family, friends and strangers. My least favorite idiot call is from the buzz box in my apartment building. People who are drunk or can’t read or are just plain idiots call my phone all the time, thinking they’re calling the friend they’re visiting.
My least favorite idiots in the public eye right now are Tea Partiers. They want to shut down government, not realizing that they won’t get their Social Security checks or Medicare/Medicaid coverage during that time. [EDIT: My mistake. Please see the comments.] And, if the GOP gets its way, they won’t get that coverage in the future, either. Idiots.
