EVER DO SOMETHING REALLY STUPID?

Okay, we all know that at one time or another, we have all done something exceptionally stupid, then later on have had a good laugh over it. I thought it might be fun for us to share, if you dare. Haa Haa
I will start because I know that Pat is just waiting to see if I dare. LOL
Today was time to clean out my kittie's litter box. I usually have help with the 30 pound bag of fresh litter because I can't lift anything over 15 Pounds. I had no idea that my help decided to go for very long walk with the dog. So, I figured what the heck, I can drag the bag all the way through the house and then just use a scoop to put the clean littler in Button's potty box. Great Idea, I thought so that it got done faster. Being very clever minded I started to drag that 30 pound bag behind me. as I was proceding to the litter box, that bag seemed to be getting lighter, so I figured, "Good, I'm getting there". It wasn't until I was pretty much THERE when I discoved a long trail of kitty litter throught out my plush carpet living room, the kitchen floor of tiles and part of the carpet where my Buttons like to go. By now, I'm a little bit on the edgy side. I first started using a broom only to figure out I was making matters worse by sweeping the litter deeper into the capeting, so I at least was able to sweep where I don't have carpeting. I'm going along and figured how much easier it will be just to vacuum the carpeting. I no sooner got about 1/2 way done vacuuming when the darn vacuum bag burst, leaving a house full of litter, dust, cat hair, dog hair and just about anything else! In the meantime, buttons is sniffing all the litter and all. Please kitty don't do it on my carpet! I was in such a frazzle that i must have called Tony some words that I never knew of before. I put Buttons in my small laundry room for a bit so that if she did do something at least I knew where to find it. Needless to say, my house is sparkling clean now for Thanksgiving and I'm not even going to be here!
Yes, I'll admit "what and idiot for thinking the bag seemed lighter because I had a good head start"

Somebody else's turn to fester up! Haaaaaaa

Oh, I am a member of the idiot club too, and ironically, with cat litter.....
My house was owned by a couple in their 90's before me, and they had a 1/2 bath put in the dining room.... and a small one at that, but it was perfect for the cat box ..... one day, I got the bright idea, to flush clumps, down the toilet, instead of scooping and tossing in garbage like I usually did (let me add, I had a septic tank, which makes this decision, that much more moronic). I was plopping and flushing, merrily away, when the litter got ahead of me.... the toliet stopped up, and I had water everywhere.... the water drained through the floor and shorted out my phone line.... I was like a crazed woman trying to unclog the toliet, mop up water and being TOTALLY grossed out by the whole experience. Luckily, the phone service came back on the next morning, I was SO relieved that I didn't have to explain, why my service was out.

Not with cat litter but I have had my share of over flowing toliets. I will elaborate, my little 4 yr old grand daughter stopped up the toliet she ran and came to me grandma the toliet exploded. I went in and indeed she used too much TP and the toliet had backed up. I proceeded to use the plunger and most of the contents went down. I thought I could give it a flush, and was I ever wrong it started rising and rising and over the top onto the bathroom carpet. It was disgusting and of course my 18 month old was about to walk into the mess and the dog and my other grand daughter. So yes Geraldine the plumber I am not!!!!!!!!!!!

ROFL!!!!! I'm SO glad I'm not the only one! Not your usual screw up, but here goes..We had taken up some of the floor covering between the kitchen and bathroom to put new down. It got late, so we decided to finish the next day. We were getting ready to go to bed, and I went to cut the bathroom light out. There was a board that was bowed (to be fixed the next day) and the toe of my shoe hit it and I went stumbling head first through the hall into the bathroom. (Forgive the typos...my keyboard is screwy, skipping spaces and letters.) The last stumble made me go horizontal toward the toilet. My head rammed the bottom of the toilet and busted it royally! Luckily it was the base and not the bowl. My head suffered no damages, LOL! I had got peed off at my husband just before it happened...He accused me of kickng it instead of him! I still get teased about hard head.

Laurie, I laughed just as hard at your post as I did when you first told me about it. If this doesn't sound like a I Love Lucy sketch!!!

I've already confessed my boiling egg disaster (which cleaned up easier than it sounded like it would).so I won't add to the merriment here.

I've thought about dumping the clumped cat poop down the toilet, but my sewer line is probably full of roots and I have trouble with my toilet on a good day. If not for that, I probably would have tried it!

Oh gosh, thank you all for a good laugh. After my 2 hour nap in front of the Tv, I now think I'm ready to go back to bed!! I hope there are some more good stories in here when I get up.

In 1974 I bought a brand new Chevy Vega. This car actually started to rust out while I was signing the papers. During the first six months I had the trans and differential replaced. The steering gearbox replaced, the clutch repaired and discovered that the factory had installed two different shades of beige upholstery in the front/rear. They had also put in the wrong heat range spark plugs but I had to discover that myself. I sold it at only 7000 miles and couldn't get much for it because I couldn't find a dealer that wanted it on their lot. Finally it was run through the auction process and some poor fool in Pennsylvania wound up with it. The thing that makes it a stupid move was that my knowledgeable friends had all advised against a Vega in the first place and I traced the build date on the sticker to a Monday. Bad news!

I hope I can stop laughing long enough to thank those of you that festered up.
Fudy, Alan really has a good point there!

I might add that is was pretty stupid of me to just now remember this post, and furthermore wake the dog and Tony up by laughing so hard in reading these hilarious experiences.
I was just getting tired enough to go to bed, but now I'm wide awake laughing my bootie off!!
I sure hope there is something good on TV this late.

Thank you brave ones for giving me the giggles that last a very long time for me. I am, however trying my best to be quiet, but I don't think it's working.

Off to bed I go with a very happy time I have spent on here.

Hugs to all,
Giggles (my nickname) AKA Laurie

Don, remember a friend who drove a Vega in the early 70s. There was a hole in the floor where you could see the road rushing by, and she always carried a case of oil in the backseat. Amazingly she took a couple of cross country roadtrips in it.

Yes. Just 2 days ago, I bought some Milk of Magnesia, because I thought it was like Pepto for upset stomachs.

I'm not sure if I really want to share another one of my "oooops" in the same week, but I'm figuring that by sharing, maybe I can laugh about it now...maybe being the key word.
Last week I bought all my baking needs for my homemade Christmas goodies. Instead of shopping on Black Friday, I always start my baking because I make several batches of several different kind of cookies, then I freeze them in freezer bags. In buying the baking needs I choose to buy a 20 pound bag of flour and also granulated sugar, rather than all the 5 pound bags. Never again! I had Tony put the baking needs up on the very top shelf of my cabinet, as I only use those very high shelves for things I don't use often. This morning Tony went with his nephew to do some shopping and I was happy to have the kitchen to myself, so I thought. And does anybody think that I was smart enough to have Tony get the stuff down? NOPE!! Didn't even think about it. So okay, I'll just use a chair to get the stuff down myself.
No, I didn't fall, that would have been too simple! Instead, I dropped the 20 pound bag of granulated sugar all the way down to the floor!
Need I say more???? ROFL I didn't bake today!!!

Mine was sold at an auction in or near Butler PA. A local dealer and friend ran it through for me. After paying fees etc. I barely had enough left for a P-Pattie.

At least that peppermint pattie was worth the money you spent on it.

By far the stupidest thing I can remember happened when I was first married. I had an old hand mixer and was mixing the batter for a cake. The cord kept falling off where it attached to the beater. It fell off into the batter and without a thought I popped it into my mouth to get rid of the batter!!!! It knocked me out of the kitchen! I was crying and laughing at the same time. It hurt like the dickens but I KNEW that was probably the most bonehead thing I ever did. DUH! I still shake my head 32 years later....what was I thinking???
