BlackJack’s Top Ten list of Ways to look Stupid in Public


#1 Walk around with your mouth open. Especially effective if you are not talking or eating.

#2 As you’re waiting in line at the donut store, bank, or what have you, when the people in front of you advance to the clerk, don’t move up. Keep the people behind you pressed against the back wall.

#3 If you are small, drive a large truck.

#4 If you are large, drive a small car. (Smart car would be perfect for making you look stupid)

#5 Drive slow in the fast lane.

#6 Drive fast in the slow lane.

#7 Wear pants wider than your legs.

#8 Wear pants shorter than your legs.

#9 Don’t walk, shuffle. Do not lift feet from ground.

last but not least (drum roll please…)

#10 BUY AN IPHONE 6! Just like everybody else…..


I am a long time BlackBerry user and fan. Beginning with the 7520, I have recognized the value of subtle productivity enhancements in BlackBerry devices for business communication and have never since strayed. Even when the iPhone took the market by storm, I was unimpressed, because it did nothing to help my business needs. Currently enjoying my one handed dream phone, the Classic! BB10 with a toolbelt! Today I contribute to UTB whenever I feel that I can help enlighten someone on the benefits of using BlackBerry over any other platform.

    Shouldn’t number 10 be Number 1…..through 10 for that matter.

      I agree. The list is backwards. #1 is buy and iPhone 6. locco_smiley_14

        You’re right. I counted up instead of down. Which makes me look kind of stupid in public. But hey that’s the goal!

    #12 — Be the guy that wears yoga pants. For example, bicyclists not wearing spandex biking shorts but yoga pants, then walking into the local store with you still wearing their biking shoes as if they’re in high heels, not moving up in line at the register with a tube of power gel in hand, finally biking away in the end, taking up the whole lane of traffic as it’s been entitled solely to them. (rant over) BTW, if this were a forum post I’d go on to reference a fellow forum member and their yoga pants (here). locco_smiley_35

      I hate bicycle jerks. You must live in California,where they are single-handedly saving the planet by forcing the handicapped and the elderly onto bicycles in the cold of winter and the heat of summer.
