Stupid Questions

They say there’s no such thing as a stupid question, but today I had two in quick succession. I’m trying to be sensitive about this, but there’s no other way for me to view these questions. See if you agree.

SQ#1: A lady asked me to fix a machine.  She said, “This machine is making a noise. It says ‘plug in’ but I don’t know what to do.  How do we fix this?”  The plug was hanging there on the machine, right at the end of the cord, in plain sight. I plugged in the machine. No more noise. 

SQ#2:  Thirty minutes later, a woman on the second floor asked me (and this is a direct quote), “I see these two green “EXIT” signs, but how do I get to the elevators or the stairs so I can get out?”  I looked at her for two seconds, and pointed towards the exit signs, saying, ” You go that way.” 

These incidents coupled with the rising occurrence of parents leaving their infant children in sweltering cars leads me to believe that the human race is actually losing IQ points at an alarming rate.
