I guess the best I ever heard was the woman on an elevator complaining/questioning why she hadn't been told in advance it would rain on her tour of the RAIN FOREST.
Kuki, am I to understand that cruise ships don't go to Las Vegas? The guy I bought the cruise tickets from in Time Square assured me that there was a pier at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. He also assured me that the Rollecks watch I bought for $5.00 was genuine and was being discounted only because someone at the factory mispelled Rolex.
I always get a kick out of the questions which would require answers specific to the particular ship being sailed on or the port of embarkation. However, the questioners fail to give any info as to the name of the ship, the identity of the cruise line or the port from which they're sailing. Unbelievable! Example: "We'll be cruising to the Caribbean in January. Are we allowed to bring sodas on the ship? How can we get an upgrade? Which pier do we leave from, and how much will the parking cost?"
The Ten Most Common (Semi-Stupid) Questions are all over the place. "Does the crew sleep on shore?"
The next teir is "I have heard ... " there are a lot of common misconceptions out there that are often "heard" wrong and taken as gospel.. Even the people with true "expert" status here on CM can't have global knowledge on a day-to-day basis.
But the stupidest is, when the Captain is doing is meet and greet party, are those who ask, "Who's drving the boat?"
Some pople want to know which will be the "good" side of a particular ship in a particular harbor. The only person who knows that is the Harbor Master.
This thread should help put the timeworn adage "There is no such thing as a stupid question" out to pasture.
