Or as my brother-in-law's wife says to him, "Ever done anything, Stupid?"

I pulled almost the same stunt. Many years ago, with a stack of classic comic books that I had bartered for. Put them on the roof of my '65 Barracuda while I found my keys, then scattered them down the highway for a couple of miles. I recovered most of them, but they were not in "classic' condition anymore.

Well..I posted some time back about my "Puss 'n Boots" sandwich. One of my more recent ones was ordering a Big Mac and Fries at a Wendy's drive thru.

I did that with food. I went to a grand opening of a motel to cover the event for the newspaper. They were serving free food so after I finished my tour and interview I filled a plate with food and got a can of pop (or soda, depending on where you live).

I was mentally running through my notes I had taken. Shifted my camera and purse to get my keys and unlock the car. I got in and drove to the highway exit when I noticed people were pointing at my car.

I got out and on top of my car was my plate of food and can of pop. Luckily I was poking along thinking about my story lead paragraph or I might have been driving faster and thrown the food everywhere.

Donden, I've done something very similar to your experience and gotten frustrated when the drive-thru clerk didn't know what I was talking about until someone told the clerk they didn't sell that sandwich there!

I don't recall anything, but let me check with the ex that I married twice.

Every Friday I pull up my car and order a Whopper, fries and a coke. The bank tellers love it.

Speaking of bank tellers....I was in the drive up line behind some guy that kept sending the tube back and forth. I couldn't move, as the was a line behind me, so I waited and waited. When I got to the window, I asked the teller if the guy made more than the allowed 3 transfusions! Instead of just overlooking my "miswording" the teller says over the very loud microphone.. "Ma'am, there are no transfusions here. Did you mean transactions??????!!!!!!!" ROFL
How many stupid things are we allowed here? LOL

I did go through a McDonald's drive thru and handed them my Safeway club card instead of my bank card.

How many can you list? That depends on you. If you want to list stupid things your friends have done, that's fine here.

I'll just say this:
When you weed-eat in gravel, wear long pants and eye protection.
When you weed-eat the dog lot, wear a face protector that covers your mouth.
Enough said about that.

"Ever done anything stupid?" insinuates that I ever do anything NOT stupid.

I would overwhelm the thread to list my moments of embarrassment.

But may I share my fave story. I have no idea if it's true or not - I think, though, I got it from Reader's Digest.

A woman had driven to the next town to go shopping with her best friend. That evening when it was time to head home, she realized she had locked her driver's side car door with the keys in the ignition. Frantic, she and her friend tried everything - wire hanger, etc., but couldn't get the door unlocked.

So she gathered her nerve and called her husband to bring his extra car key so she could drive home.

He was quite irritated, but headed out the door for the 45 minute drive to go rescue her.

Meanwhile, she noticed her new bags of goodies in the backseat, absent mindedly reached for the back door handle which opened pretty as you please, and then realized aghast that she hadn't checked the back door before she called her husband, who was now more than halfway to her location.

Her friend asked her if her husband would be even angrier to get there, realizing she could have unlocked her door from the back seat.

In a moment of clarity, she opened the back door, locked it, and closed it back...with a wink.

As I left school one day, I saw one of my students sitting on her car hood (bonnet), looking sad. She told me she couldn't unlock her car, as her remote buttons weren't working. Apparently the remote's battery had died. I took her key, put it into the keyhole, and presto! the lock button popped up. She was amazed at this fantastic new way to open the lock.

I had to go to court to testify, so of course I wanted to dress nice. The waist of my slip was way too big so in a pinch I grabbed 2 diaper pins and walla, the slip didn't fall down. Upon enter the court house I buzzed the security machines that detected metal. All my jewelery was solid gold and my car keys were in the box that they tell you to put metals in. Shall I go on??????????? LOL

My dad came home from WWII with shrapnel in him in several places. When metal detectors became common at airports, he was often called aside for the sweep-down. He finally had to carry a card from his doctor.

I bought an old firebird with t-tops. One night when it was raining I hastily put them in, one was loose and came off in a burst of wind as I was flying down A1A it shattered. Instead of getting another I drove it around and eventually put a hole in the floor board for the water to run out. Stupid is, is stupid does.

Ever hear the one about the Polish guy who called AAA because he locked his wife in the car by mistake?

Went through a drive-thru and actually forgot to roll my car window down to order. When I got to the food window, the sassy teenager told me that they didn't have my order because I never ordered it! I started to argue, but then I realized she was right. I then drove off in embarrassment.

Oh those good old drive ups! My son always likes to pull embarrassing(sp?) stunts on me such as making like he doesn't know me in a store and such. Well, he used to order a number 2 breakfast at McDonalds every morning on the way to work, while he was on his blue tooth talking to me. One Saturday morning he picked me up to go shopping but he first wanted to stop and grab breakfast. When he ordered a number 2, I yelled " don't forget the toilet paper with that" ! LOL My son was so mad and didn't have the nerve to go to the window. I said to him"paybacks are a ****, aren't they?" I walked in to pay and get his breakfast for him. All the workers were laughing so hard and said I made their day!
