What stupid/absent-minded things have YOU done recently?
I lasted 45 minutes in one as a 16 year old, technically my first job.
that i might be able to pay rent and whatnot.
sorry i'm lowering the tone of the thread.
other stupid things i've done recently include throwing a plate in the bin and pouring rice crispies into my coffee cup.
it was not a taste sensation.
(unless you mean cornflakes on meusli. that sounds fine.)
what did you hope to achieve?
with the standard work greeting. Stupid busy day
I was lying in bed one morning and my phone made a noise which I assumed to be the alarm, so I hit it and rolled over and tried to get back to sleep, and then realised I could hear a faint voice saying "hello? ...hello?". Turns out I'd answered a call from someone inviting me to an interview.
There's always something.
Neve rput on oven gloves to open the freezer though. I like the sound of it.
But silently of course
Moker would be FURIOUS!!
Power point presentation blah blah blah and I pulled a tampon out of my bag instead of a pen
aRGJ FOR FUCK SAKE.
I don't thnk I suit work.
Also, today because this meeting was important, I had on a NEW grey suitdress, and I looked very professional but I found it hard to walk in so i was kind of doing a shuffle kind of work, less Marilyn Monroe, more John Wayne in pampers...
Anyway after the meeting I realised that there was stitching at the back onf the dress that is meant to be broken for the slight slit thing at the back.
You're on fire! :D
I KNOW IT'S AT ONE EXTREME OF THE TEMPERATURE SCALE.
never works, like.
Im always doing this stuff. Keep finding t-towels in the fridge. My purse in the freezer once. Butter and cheese in teh cupboard. It happens that often now ive got used to it. Probably not a good thing.
The most recent female frank spencer moment was the other day when i was cutting an onion for dinner. I managed to squirt onion juice in my eye. Stingy!
and i pressed the down button on the computer instead of the remote. for several seconds, absentmindedly wondering why it wasn't working.
When I got a little bit addicted to Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and got a text message. When I went to pick up my phone I accidentally knocked it off the table... first action: reload my last saved game and wonder why my phone is still on the floor :(
when you were trying to steal something? :D
if im honest :/
when I tried to a bin bag over the basin in the sink. in my defence they are the same colour, the bin and the basin.
I long time ago I came back from work to find, quite inexcplicably, a hat in the freezer. Not sure how that came about, but i must have done it.
Rather than the laundry basket opposite said toilet.
*runs off into the sunset*
make sure you hang up properly first
Guy who sits opposite on me was on the phone to a customer and had to confirm their security word, said, it's a football team, customer replied, colleague confirmed, cue 3 of us booing the team name. Customer heard and said in a sad voice "but it's my daughters name" and said his goodbyes. BTW, his daughters name wasn't Darlington Rovers.
Doncaster Rovers though.
Always doing this.
I left my headphones plugged into someone else's computer on the other side of the office for most of the day. As I was leaving I wandered over like a zombie, slowly unplugged their mouse, stuffed it into my bag and started walking out the door before she called me back and asked if she could please have her mouse back
Lucien doesn't even have to try anymore. He can sack the entire writing team, post mildly humorous, bit largely pedestrian anecdotes and still pull all the laughs.
Like a commentary person. Just in my head. I don't want him to follow me around or anything. Not in THOSE boots.
I'll try to either open my front door with my work pass or get into work with my housekeys.
I often pull out my travelcard at my front door and just stare at it all for a while, trying to fathom why it all feels a bit...off.
trying to hail a tube train.
Same on normal trains.
I do things like this all of the time. ALL OF THE TIME. I'm sure that I have early onset Alzheimers.
Yesterday I made coffee without putting the coffee in.
- Putting coffee back in the fridge (POCKETMOUSE TO THREAD)
- Walking to the printer at work without having printed anything
Could go on. It's more tragic than anything
or pop the cup of tea in the fridge but keep the milk out
I was in the middle of drafting an agreement, where one of the clauses related to a profit share per tonnage of ore, when I had to access this old account, and instead of typing in my <middlename with lots of numbers>, I typed in TONNAGE<with same numbers>. My middle name, tonnage. I now can't stop typing TONNAGE.
But do you mind if I use Profit Share Per Tonnage Of Ore as the name of my next band?
but if I do that, you can hack my email. On reflection though, you can't because i've got rid of that account now. So..., the name is Antonia. Antonia Tonnage, pleased to meet you.
(and by all means do).
Why the hell did you even have a novelty porn playing card with you whilst shopping!?
Apparently the Co-op accepts Visa, Maestro or Mastercard.....but not ''Randy Eliza's Succulent Blowjobs''
this morning. That was a pretty bad start to the day all things considered.
has used the excuse that his girlfriend's housemate accidentally locked him in their flat no fewer than three times now. wearing a little thin.
He lent it to me for a while. I had been lying in bed each night for about a week with the faint smell of piss every now and again. Didn't realise until i moved it that it was full of the stuff. Had to tip it out over the balcony into the garden. Spayed it with fabreeze every day for a fortnight and gave it back.
It still works.
is, I'll just ring it then... OH FUCK WHY CAN'T I RING MY HAT?
I was at a friend's house the other night. I was trying to make a phone call, I thought there was something wrong with the phone. I'd been hitting nine, Lynn. I felt like a ruddy idiot. I just left, I couldn't stay there after that.
Bought a train ticket to Longton rather than Longport on the way to work a few weeks ago. Didn't realise until the guard pointed out I was going the wrong way :/
and 'amazon' into Amazon.
Must've been quite the fright
searching through my pockets, picking up my phone with the mindset of ringing up my house to see if I've left my phone there
The bathroom was a minty mess. Idiot.
Frantically went through my pockets trying to work out what I'd done with it. Had to turn off my iPod because the music was distracting me from searching...
It never works
Immediatly open a new one and go to the same site -_-
got there and couldnt remember what I was after.. just stood there for a minute hoping I'd remember. Left the room. Still unsure what it was I needed
instead of the search box. Then everyone knows you were looking at their profile.
for me making a lovely cup of coffee at 7am this morning just before I went out, but forgetting to actually boil the kettle beforehand. My expression when I took the first (and only) sip must have been brilliant.
Fill the kettle, put it back, but forget to turn it on...Return a few minutes later assuming it's boiled, and pour cold water into the cafetiere :'( Waste of my lovely coffee.
I stapled something at work t'other day, then threw the stapler in the bin. Didn't just drop it in either...It was a spectacular, show off, across the office shot! Fucking missed as well.
*at the bin
