|for me ........so many idiot moments , so little internet space. My life is full of them.|
The person who asks other women how many months along they are ...and then finding out they are not pregnant.....Yep that's me .
Screaming and shouting to get someones attention across the road and then finding out that it's not who you thought is was and they are a total stranger...Yep me again.
Telling some poor bugger at a funeral how sorry you are for their loss and finding out it's just the hearse driver. *banging head against wall.*
Well I think I've embarrassed myself enough for today .

|My ex just turned up with my youngest 2 kids. I looked over at the car from a distance and said "Hi" in a friendly manner to who I thought was my third son of 14 years. |
Turns out it was my ex's boyfriend of 20 something (she is 36). He is smaller than my 14 year old and looks like he is just entering high school.
Im not sure who felt like the bigger idiot, me ,him or her but I sure as hell got a laugh. When I got closer and saw this meek little boy I could not help but let out a laugh. I said a quick sorry and backed away quickly (sorry but thats what he looks like). I think even with my stupidity I was running third in the feeling stupid department by the embarresed look on his face and the angry look on hers.

|Our local branch was having an email war and I was deliberately staying out of the fray. My friend was sent a rather cutting personal email which she forwarded on to me. I hit 'reply' and wrote to my friend offering support along with some personal truths about her attacker........... and....yep...you guessed it ... when I hit 'send', my email went to the attacker! So then I was in her sights!|

|On our way to lunch, me and a workmate were crossing the road when we noticed this man in front of us kinda twisting, slowly spinning....to avoid the blowing of the wind and trying to get the most optimum angle as not to rustle his comb-over. I bit my lip so hard as not to embarrass the man....then the wind got stronger and started to lift the clump of hair....but the volumes of hair spray he sprayed on it made it look like a big stiff banner...not too far off to the one the astronauts had during the lunar landing. |
At work, while waiting to use the photocopying machine, someone's sexytary was taking all her sweet time when the machine jammed. She tried fixing it, opening doors here and there, twisting knobs, then as she bent down to open the lower paper drawer, she let out a massive big fart....immediately straightened herself and started coughing!!!! Yer right, I could not really tell the difference......

|We moved house a few weeks ago and now actually have an office area for the computer.After setting it all up and sitting in the room for a while I discovered it was really quite hot in there.I had previously given away my pedestal fan so after putting up with the heat for about a week I decided to invest in another as it was too hot to spend any length of time in front of the computer....and thats where I live after all!|
On arriving home with my new purchase I immediately set it up and it was far more pleasant. A couple of days later on a particularly hot day my daughter walked in as I was typing away and said "Mum, why dont you put the fan on its hot in here".
I nodded towards my new fan and basically took the mickey out of her telling her it was already on and was she blind. Rolling her eyes at me in that particular way only a 10 year old can she said "No Mum, I mean that big one on the ceiling".

| Hilly thats priceless.So how is the big one on the ceiling,work well.|

|manMiss Hilly, that is priceless. Needed a good laugh.|
Was in pub in Woolamalloo....dang spelling, Syndey suburb near Kings Cross. Man was at piano playing very well. Me being "theatre marvelous darling" rock up, compliment him on his skill, join in singing as do some of his friends. Was fun talking about growing up doing amateur dramatics, mum n brother both opera singers etc, even the dreaded Gilbert and Sullivan got sung. Turned out that I had been singing with the cast of Les Miserables all the niave long night....argh!!!!
Or more recently...house mess, teen party night before....cig butts all over back verandah, me no drink well so huge hangover, no clean clothes or underwear, strange man turning up to drop something arty off, caught in shower 2pmish, grab nightdress, put on, then proceed to impress no one with facile comments, asthma outa control so coughing lots, mention of prostitution, gin and tonic and bobs your uncle....another one bites the dust. On lighter note, gfriend who was there, informed later that the bally dress was seethrough and I had patches of yetty leg that had missed the razor. Dang I love cosmic jokes.

|I think I do 'idiot' rather well.|
I bought some new fairy lights for my deck a few weeks before Christmas, and only realised when I went to hang them them that instead of grabbing 2 matching sets I'd accidentally grabbed one set of white, and one set of coloured bulbs. When you live out of town like I do, every trip to run an errand is time consuming, so I was cursing myself that now I had to go all the way back to the shopping centre...especially in the last days before Christmas, do battle to find a park, and contend with the pushing crowds... just to fix my own mistake.
So 2 days before Christmas I headed off to make the swap, and grabbed a sprite from a servo along the way. I didn't open the drink until I was almost at the shopping centre, and cos I was driving I gripped the bottle between my thighs to hold it still while I opened the lid. When I did, the softdrink spurted out all over the legs and crotch of my jeans and ran underneath me and soaked my ar$e too. So it looked very much like...in fact exactly like... I had wet myself. But to turn back around and go all the way back home just to change would have been stupidly time consuming...so I gritted my teeth, and went in. I made no eye contact with anyone and just ran in and ran out with my f#*@%#g fairy lights in hand. Public humiliation is always so very character building.

| Naamah thats priceless as well.So how did the fairy lights look? |
Suppose i should put myself out there.
Putting up the Crissy tree.I have a tree that has 3 sections too it,bottom,middle and top.It tapers up from the bottom narrowing as it goes up.It has individual branches that need to be opened up.Had friends over on the day i was putting it up for some Crissy drinks.When they left i thought too drunk too put the tree up,bugger it i'll do it.Thought i did a great job till i seen it in the morning.I had the middle section on the bottom and the bottom section in the middle,at least i got the top right.The tree wobbled that much i thought it might fall over any minute.Most of the lights were on the top half,the dectorations were,hard to describe,a mess and Santa was about to do a front mickey off the top of the tree.Three hours later it looked a lot better.In future this idiot is going to drink after putting the tree up.

|I was out shopping with my kids on Saturday, we had a couple of bags each and were heading for the exit when I noticed a sale on at Rockmans. (I usually don't shop at rockmans but as it was a sale) |
I was looking at the tops at the front of the store when my daughter picked up a top and said "look at this mum isn't it pretty?" I said "no I don't like it ,it looks like a grandma top". I removed a couple of tops on hangers to look at the ones I liked at the back of the rack. I turned to my duaghter and said "look at this, this is nice"
She said with her 11 year old attitude "no it looks like a grand ma top",, then she told me what I was wearing looked like a grand ma top (obviously she was insulted by my earlier coment). I decided to go saying to the kids come on lets get going.
We headed towards the exit passing about 7 shops when I looked down to sort out the bags I was carrying. To my surprise and absolute amusement I was carrying 2 of the tops, on thier hangers, I had removed earlier from the rack in Rockmans!!! I was so surprised I said at the top of my voice to the kids and everybody else that was within 10 metres of me,,, "OH MY GOD I have just accidently stolen these tops from Rockmans",, I spun around at the same time expecting security or a shop assistant to be running after me,, luckily to my surprise no one was trailing me. I walked back as quick as possible, once I reached the edge of the shop I reached over and hung the tops back on the sale rack.
I was so ammused by my own stupidity that I was peeing myself laughing and only just keeping it together to reach to exit, noticeing the nice looking guy I had smiled at earlier, now I was trying to hide my face as I passed him as I do not do laughing or crying pretty.

|Recently I took one of my employers cars out to work from a clients site for the day. I parked the car in a multi-storey car park and off I toddled to do my work.|
At the end of the day when I got back to the car park I realised that I hadn’t taken note of which level I had parked the car in, and to make things worse, I didn’t have a clue as to what colour or make the car was. Crap! Stood at the entrance of the carpark for a minute or two before it dawned on me that there was only one thing I could do to find the car………….get the lift to every freaking floor and patrol the entire level pushing the unlock button on the key until one of the cars responded. Took frigging ages and got some very strange looks from other people. Sigh.......sometimes I think the blonde hair dye I use seeps into my brain.... 8-)

|Years ago I used to do some off shore yacht racing with a friend . . he was a mad sailor. The problem for me was that I seemed to suffer from sea sickness. I never actually threw up but the nausea would take the fun out of it . . particularly when I went below for some sleep etc. and couldn't see the horizon.|
I figured I just had to do something about this as some of the longer races were conducted over a number of days. I duly went to the chemist for advice and hopefully some remedy. He gave me some antihistamine tablets and said they should help.
I got the dosage wrong somehow and ended up taking four tablets per hour instead of four per day . . something like that.
Anyway, at sunset the usual procedure is to count the yachts one can see so you have an idea of where you (and they) are during the night and most importantly, how much distance you might have made on them by morning.
I counted about twenty seven yachts and when the skipper told me there were only eighteen in the race, I thought there might be something wrong . . 'cos I'm sharp as a tack.
Only later did I learn from the chemist that an overdose may cause hallucinations.
I wouldn't have minded all that much if the tablets had helped the nausea . . but, nope.

....may cause hallucinations.
"Midshipman FauxPa reporting the count, SAH!"
At ease sailor. What say you?
"27 yachts, SAH!"
"27 yachts, a Newspaper Taxi, 3 Loch Ness Monsters, and a Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes, SAH!"
Very good sailor. Here, you men over there, come and take hold of Midshipman FauxPa and throw him overboard will you....
