Red face Please tell me I am not the only one who does STUPID THINGS!

((((sigh)))))

Would you chicks please tell me that I am not the only one who does STUPID THINGS? It would relieve my stress levels to no end to know that I am not the only one.

Remember the time I had those nifty (yet for me completely useless) acrylic nails and set my thumb nail on fire lighting a gas burner. I thought that was the low in stupid things.

But, alas...I go lower! Yesterday dh and I were out fixing the lights, yet again. I was replacing the dud bulbs with new ones. Unfortunately, for a couple of years now I have gotten into the habit of taking a tissue and sticking it in the waist band of my pants. (I have turned into my mother!) So, my hands were full and I stuck a dud bulb in my waist band. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! So, life goes on and I find it is time to wait outside for the little guy's bus. I sit on the front porch and wait. A friend pulls up to say hello. I bend over gracefully to stand up to greet her. POP! That's right, right in my large butt, I broke the bulb. OUCH! HO HO HO!

NOW can you see how stress eating is creeping into my life???? This I need?

Please, let me know I am not the only one to do stupid things!

hugs and all that good stuff!

It turnes out that when i came inside my DD was sleeping and brought her inside and laid it on her bed and then threw the coat on top of it. on the foot of the bed. (with 2 small kids and working full time the brain did not function well and the coat stayed there)

How about the time i made soup for the family and put a pork hock (frozen when i put it in) in the soup, well what i did not know waas that the pork hock was bad and the soup was to I did not know it as i did not try the soup. now when i say the family i mean the WHOLE FAMILY In Laws included!!! it was not till every one was not eating the soup, (and i served my self last) that i tried it UGH!!!!

Default You Are Not Alone!

Hey, I am the oldest and have done more stupid things than the whole Coop. Put it this way, if you never do anything, you never do anything stupid! Life happens when you do stuff.

I stepped off the ladder into a gallon pail of paint and managed to spill the tray of paint over my stovetop.

Put my watch in my bra so I would not forget it in the bathroom and went back to my meeting. It went off during the meeting and I had to grope for it.

Left my wallet on the back bumper of my car in a parking lot - gone when I went back, of course.

Took two pans of squares out of the oven and dumped them out of the pan. Then read the instructions to "cool in pan" as I watched the squares turn into crumbs.

These are all recent!

Also - got married twice! LOL!

I could go on and on but won't.

OK now you all know that you can call me the firebug--I almost lit my house on fire from putting what I thought was cold ash in a cardboard box on my back step. Big burnt out hole there now and when everybody sees it they ask ME what happened!

Just this morning Sue I lit my electric stove on fire when I put the kettle on--grease under the burner!

Let's just say my friends call me Smokey!

I could go on and on but the humiliation and sadness of it all just overwhelms me!

Well I had a wopper yesterday. I normally go to work at 6:30 and dh gets the boys off to school. Well yesterday he had an early meeting so we switched schedules. That must have been my problem, my schedule was off. I was wearing a pair of black slacks and a nice Christmas sweater. It was not until I got in my office that I noticed I was wearing my bright green house slippers.

I also catch myself trying to unlock my front door with my automatic car door opener

And I am not even blond, used to be!

... and then there was the time that I went to work in my black sweater and black half slip!

....and the time my BIL noticed I had my car keys in hand as we got onto an airplane. He asked if I was driving.

....and the time I grabbed a colleague's crotch when he bent over the water fountain but you chicks are too innocent to hear that one. It really was a mistake!

This could go on forever!

I just spit coffee all over my keyboard because I'm laughing so hard!

Oh, by the way, Peach, yep, you are the only one ever in the history of the world to do stupid things!

Just last night I was trying to switch channels, getting mad at the remote, only to look down and see I had the phone in my hand!

Last week when I was finishing the kitchen cabinets I forgot that I had left the paint tray on the table, only for the cat to jump in it. As I was following the white footsteps on the hardwood floor (cleaning as I went) I looked behind me to see that I had paint on my foot too and was making my own trail as I was cleaning the cat's.

Peach, I hope you don't have shards in your bum! Ouch!
Sue, hopefully all the preservatives in the coldcuts kept them from smelling too bad!
Jenny, I'm sure all of your colleagues thought they were a part of your holiday ensemble...yeah that's it! I wore my red slippers to the post office the other day on purpose - just lazy!
And, I'm not even going to touch (so to speak) the crotch grab maneuver!

How about giving a man a lecture for walking into the ladies room at a movie theatre only to turn around and see the urinals...

Default Just so you guys don't feel alone. . . .

Once I had the entire fire department over for Christmas Dinner, as I was baking sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top (IN THE ELECTRIC OVEN). Little sis called before I had time to put a lid on the dish, and by the time all the guys got there, the "fire" was smoldering on my front porch!

Then, there's the time I grabbed my husband's hand and dragged him away from the video games at the store, only to look up and find. . . . NOT my husband!

My favorite is when my daughter was first learning to talk, and we were in the grocery store. She wanted to be picked up, and she screams "HELP ME! HELP ME!" over and over, people were looking at me like I was kidnapping her!

I laughed so hard over this I e-mailed it to a few girls I know, because they will get a double kick out of it!

Oh, I have one more to add--how about putting your arms around your friend's dh and nuzzling his neck thinking it was your dh from behind? Did it and boy was that ever embarrassing!
