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?"""""""

The guy who always drove everywhere
I travelled from Manchester to an event in Nottingham with an ex-colleague, who wasn't used to public transport. We got the hourly Norwich-bound train.

I had to travel back a day early, so I wrote the return train times down for my colleague and left him to it.

Next day, he phones me from the train, to complain I'd got the times wrong, so he just missed a train and had to wait nearly an hour. "I definitely checked the Manchester train times and wrote them down right", I insisted.

"Well, I'm not on the bloody Manchester train, am I?", he snapped. "I'm on the Norwich one, like the one we got here."

That reminds me.
Back in my uni days I used to give a mate who lived near me (Brum) a lift to/from uni (Aberdeen) when the terms finished. His mum used to meet us in a lay-by on the A38 next to the M5.

So my mate jumps in and we start nattering about how Christmas was, and to be honest I was a bit distracted. Something that became apparent after about half 45 minutes of driving I noticed a motorway sign that said 'BRISTOL - 40 miles'. Oops.
