What idiodic thing have you done? Fri, 10/28/11 4:47 PM (permalink)
Yesterday I received a surprise squooshy envelope with a nice bracelet in it.
 
I thanked the sender and told her that my big fingers were having trouble with the clasp.  She told me that Sharon could help me with it.
 
She wrote back this morning asking if I figured out the clasp.
 
Then she wrote...  I'm sure you and Sharon will wear them everyday.
 
Them?   As in Two?
 
 Luckily the envelope was still in the trash.  Sharon's was still inside.

      Too much to list.

        Today I was replenishing the tenderloin tips at work, and instead of filling the bowl with said product from the holding container, I started spooning the tips from the bowl into the container....
        That was just the first idiotic thing today!

            How much time you got?
             
            Today I ate all the hot sauce from Calumet Fisheries & I still have smoked SHRAMPS left...
             
            Yesterday my idiotic thing was not getting 2 containers of hot sauce.

              Of all the idiotic things I have done in my life (plenty, I can assure you), the one thing I haven't done was misspell "idiotic" as "idiodic" in the title of my own thread about doing idiotic things.
               
              Just tell everyone you meant to do that, and it was supposed to be read ironically.  You'll be fine.

                    When I was a kid I stuck my finger in a light socket to see if anything would happen...something happened!

                      I just almost had a heart attack.  I'm sure my blood pressure is still sky high, but I won't check it.
                       
                      Sitting here at my desk, talking and the phone rang.  My phone has caller ID and it was me, calling me.  The call was from my cell phone.  No one was on the other end.
                       
                      I thought about two seconds and then I immediately freaked.  Where is my cell phone?  Was it in my car?  Did I leave it at the assisted living home a couple of nights ago?  Where is my purse?  Was it in my car and my car was broken in to?
                       
                      Down the stairs, up the stairs, down the stairs, up the stairs...  I don't have my purse!  OH NO, NOT AGAIN.
                       
                      Called my cell phone and no one answered.  Damn!  I don't want to go through that again.  Panic!
                       
                      WHat should I do first?
                       
                      That's when I saw it, under my desk...  my purse.  It's solid black just like it is under my desk in the dark.
                       
                      Was my cell phone inside?
                       
                      Yes!  It was inside and all lit up.
                       
                      Seems that I pushed the right button/s with my foot.
                      Phew!
                      Doofus.

                              Not necessarily idiotic, but like starfire62, forgetful. I was a marshal at a PGA golf tournament at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Golf Course and I was busy guarding Billy Casper as he stepped behind a bush on the inside the track back 9 to relieve himself when the father of a classmate of mine came up to me and said, "Hey, aren't you supposed to be at your graduation?" Yep, forgot. I was graduating from high school that night. I had to abandon Casper and barely made it.

                                If I wrote some of the stupid things I did in my lifetime, I would have to add "writing about them here" to the list...
