This is a question Stupid Colleagues

Godwin's Lawyer tells us: "I once worked with a lad who believed 'Frankenstein' was based on a true story, and that the book was written by Shirley Bassey." Tell us about your workplace dopes.

Only a few weeks back
a colleage said to a newish member off staff when the phone rang "pass me the phone please Tom". This duly happened and more experienced member of staff went on to answer the phone in his polite, professional manner, only to find that the phone was still ringing. Looking at the handset he beheld he looked over at Tom and despairingly said "pass me the phone that's ringing Tom."

I'm not sure who is stupider, the chap who passed the phone that wasn't ringing or the experienced staff member who didn't spot that it was the wrong handset.

Whilst I'm here, wasn't Frankenstein almost based on a true story as Mary Shelley took inspiration from Dr. Gallvan's work, a French doctor who tried to bring frogs back to life by passing electric current through them? Not a human of course, assembled from various parts of various corpses, but certainly not as fanciful as many things?
