This is a question Stories of unsurpassed brilliance

This "Week" The suggestion comes from Kroney who muses

"Whilst I was passing through Miami airport at the tender age of 21, I fancied a beer. "ID" said the charming Southerner behind the desk, so I got out my passport and showed it to her.

"You have to be 21," she said. Now this confused me slightly as I had been 21 for several months by this point and my date of birth was staring her in my face.

"I am 21," I replied helpfully "it says so there, look"

"You have to be 21", she said getting angry.

Cut a long story short, I argued, the manager came out, I argued with him before I finally realised that they weren't looking at the date of birth at all. They were looking at the date of *issue*

That would have made me an annoyingly precocious four year old. What examples of unsurpassed mental genius have you experienced?"""""""

My mother, god bless 'er, is sometimes quite easily taken in. As long as you say something with enough confidence, it can take much longer than it should for her to twig that things aren't quite right.

Some time ago, I mentioned an item I'd heard on the radio to her during the course of a conversation.
"I think I heard that," she said. "I was in the kitchen when it came on."
"Oh," I said. "I think we must be talking about something else, because I was definitely in the car."

Mum agreed that it must have been a different item. It was only when Dad and I couldn't contain our laughter any more that the light dawned.
