Head Slapper

You know of a time when you encounter something or somebody so stupid that you can only slap your forehead in disbelief?
I was reminded of this particular incident yesterday, you won't believe this....

One day earlier this year a female co-worker (about 33 years old) appeared to be in some discomfort. She was rubbing her lower abdomen.
Then it happened:

She asks me "Do you ever have that problem when your ovaries hurt?"
The stupidity stunned me. Then she asked again:
"Do you ever have that problem when your ovaries hurt?"

I responded "I don't have ovaries."
"You don't?" she asked "Why?"
"Because I am a male, we have something called 'testicles' instead of ovaries."
(By now I am having trouble keeping a straight face.)
"Guys don't have ovaries also?"
"No, we don't"
"I didn't know that."

I walked away in a catatonic stupor. I was thinking she was pulling a joke, but she wasn't.

Oh my god.

The mind boggles.

Catatonic stupor. Oxymoronic, but appropriate in this case.

I admire your restraint in walking away, amused. I would have had to fight an insane urge to shake the crap out of her. Stupid wench.

To quote Kellie Bundy from Married with Children, "The mind wobbles!"

I read this to my co-workers and they were speechless. There is nothing more that I can add.
