Be honest, how stupid are you?

I have just gone to make a coffee. I put the kettle on the after some time it occurred to me i can't hear it boil. Went to the kitchen and could not see the kettle!

After much searching i found the kettle inside the oven!!! Yes i am a fool!

So how stupid have you been?

At work we have up lighters in the treatment rooms for soft lighting . I had just bought a new lamp with a new bulb and put it all together, quite proud i was until i switched it on and it would not work. I checked everything was ok and still not working ,so i called an electrition friend i know to check the wiring. After he checked it he took out the bulb and turned it the other way round and it worked ! yes id put the bulb in upside down and called an electrition out ! ( it was the bar type bulb so how did i know their was a right and a wrong way ? ) :oops:

the worse one was trying to get a nail or maybe it was a screw couldnt get it out (stuck in the wardrobe) anyways got the other side of the hammer to pull it out, it flicked out and hit me in the eye, ouch had to wear an eye mask thing for ages, lesson learnt tho, found my milk in the oven the other day must of put it there instead of the fridge, but im pregnant so im allowed to do that lol

I went to make a cup of tea one day, got the cup ready, tea-bag in, sugar jar ready, sugar in the cup, kettle boiled, poured the kettle into the sugar jar! wouldn't mind but it was a brand new bag grrrrr:oops:


That is SO the kind of thing I do, put a teaspoon of sugar in the coffee jar, etc...

If I am running around tidying up, 2 things in hand 99% of the time they will be put in each others places - only realising when I can't fit OH's wallet on the phone cradle :oops:

Have also found the house phone in my handbag whilst out shopping before

I remember I was draining something in a strainer - was nearly finished when I remembered that I needed to save the liquid for the sauce.

WIll probably need to post again! :giggle:

Daughter at Uni: Dashing round getting ready to go out, collects stuff - bag, keys, money, phone.
gets outside and wonders why she's holding the TV remote and can hear her phone ringing inside the flat.

Me very busy at desk and concentrating hard on paperwork, comparing it to what's on my screen. Been doing it for ages, but by bit and the screensaver kicks in. Very carefully reached out and moved my cup of coffee a couple of inches to kill the screensaver, instead of the mouse:

Me painting: The missus had brought me a (well earned) cuppa. Just doing the last tricky bit of cutting in. Tea don't half taste horrible if you dip the paint brush in the cup instead of the paint pot!

My mate (an electronics engineer, so knows a thing or two about electrics) admitted that he was in his kitchen when the lights went out as a power cut bit. "Aha" thought he. "No torch. I know, I'll open the fridge and use the light in there." Then he realised the fridge lights tend to be a bit electrical as well.

Picking up my desk phone and starting to use the computer keyboard number pad to dial.

Finally: Starting to read this flaming thread at 1:20 am!!!!!!!!!!!

About 15 years ago I had a nice company car, and my wife had a ****** old wreck.

Her car needed petrol, so I said I would go get some for her.

When I got outside I thought "I dont want to go in her car I will go in mine, its nicer"

It was only when I was half way to the garage I realised I needed her car to put the petrol in it !

Used to wear suit for work. everything was upside down one morning. things not going according to, phone keeps ringing, kids upset, Mum screwing. Eventually shot out of house to catch bus (Car not working) and found myself at busy bus stop in my SLIPPERS!!!.

Another time, different Job. Been travelling to work by bus every morning for over a year and got to know everyones faces - where they got on - where they got of. You, know, interesting things. Passes the time Etc.

Anyway, left home waited for bus.
Doh? different peeps at busstop?? Got on bus. different faces. couldn't understand. Checked watch. Still 10 past so right bus. Perhaps watch wrong? Checked time with other passenger. Uh???. 10 past SIX!!!

Bloody alarm had gone off an hour earlier. shot off bus and got the return. Had a cuppa (And a rest) and went back on the right bus. No harm done:)

Happens to us all.

Once cooked some rice in the microwave and forgot to add the water to the bowl. The whole flat smelled and the rice was black.

Also couldn't find my coffee, I'd put it in the fridge.

I've also set alight to the kitchen worktop.

I'm just dangerous in the kitchen.

I once bumped a 1/2 year old thread

I put some Nancho's under the grill instead of the oven and left the pastic lid on - that was a disaster........

oh and there was the time I posted a letter in the father christmas letter box in town at christmas and had to turn it on it's side and crawl inside trying to find it, until a security guard came over (who had been watching me on the CCTV) asking exactly wot I was doing!! :oops:

Oh and there was the time when I.......actually....no, I'm gonna stop there:oops:

I'm trying to think of the worst thing i've done as theres been many.

When I was 14 I went shopping with my Auntie, anyways we were in Asda and I noticed Horseradish in the fresh counter, I turned and said to her whats Horser A Dish, she was mortified.

I used to think that Pedestrains was pronounced Ped E Strains.

Putting my grans shopping away, she asked for a coffee, for the life of me I couldn't find it, turned out i'd put it in the fridge.

The phone was ringing in my Grans house and I couldnt find it anywhere, ended up having to hit the button to find it on the cradle, anyways that ended up in the fridge too(was my Auntie tho and not me lol).

Some funny stories there...even though I'm being lazy and only reading a few of them. :p

I do that all the time...never ask me to go shop to buy a couple particular items....because I always come back with about 3 or 4 bags more than I intended. :oops:

Stupid bargains at Tesco's local. :x

I remember when my sister called our Mum to find out how to boil eggs, my Mum told her " in a saucepan".... shame she didnt mention she'd need to put water in there too..........

I was in town the other week, talking to my daughter on my mobile phone, half way through the conversation I had a panic as my phone was missing out of my handbag...LOL

I remember a few years ago my Mum bought some Christmas cards, when she went to use them she couldn't find them anywhere... we found them in March when we cleaned the freezer out.... hehe

See how we love you to bits.*mwahh*
I was going to be totally outraged at this procession of menial household activities but didn't actually catch it until I got back after being driven by my hubby for a meal with mates, made by the man of the house; returned to be given a couple of cans whilst I popped on-line. *slurp*
A woman's work is never done. *wink*
I would do smilies but the 5 image max has been reached. *grin*
