What is the most ignorant thing someone has said to you?

I'm a waiter. I had a woman ask me if we had gluten free water

I was at a cafe and heard the lady at the table next to me order eggs Benedict with extra hollandaise sauce, but asked for the toast to come without butter because she was avoiding saturated fat.
Edit: For those who don't know, hollandaise is made from almost nothing but butter.

'The baby is in a little protective sack that keeps out all the bad stuff, it's fine.'
Drunk, smoking, pregnant teenager at a wedding I was at a few years ago.

"That's not snow on top of the mountain."
"Of course it is, what else would it be?"
"White plastic sheeting."

I went through treatment for cancer. The amount of people who think it is helpful to point out that 'big pharma has the cure for cancer but are hiding it' is mind boggling.

"You have a roof over your head, you get to eat every day. You have no reason to be depressed"
I wasnt even depressed, Im just a quiet kid who doesn't smile much.

Returning to school after my house had burned down during the summer. Arguably the worst summer of my life. I was minding my own business in class and some guy blurted out, "Did you all burn your house down just for insurance money?"

I was hired by a woman to follow her husband. I followed the shitbird to a motel where he walked hand in hand into a room, came out 30 minutes later[lunch break], and he grabbed her ass as she got into her car. My client asked, "Do you know what they were doing in there?" It really wasn't stupid per se. She knew. It was a pure form of denial/stupidity.

Woman sees my work and says "Oh look, wooden pottery."

That was right up there, but in the words of James Francis Durante "I got a million of 'em."

A waitress once asked me what dressing I wanted on my Caesar salad.

We still give my law enforcement cousin grief over the time dispatch told him to be on the lookout for a horse in a subdivision and he asked "What color?"
