Done Anything Stupid Recently?

on Tue Jan 16, 2018 9:19 pm
No forum with me on it should be without this topic. Looking at the car dashboard yesterday, I confused the car temperature chart with the engine oil gauge and assumed we were empty. I happily splashed in a jerry can of oil before checking the dipstick level, which was, shall we say, on the high side. I rang the mechanic who keeps our car in trim and he put my mind (what was left of it) at rest. Indeed the car seems to be behaving itself fine. Christ on a bike was I relieved. It does make you question the true identity of the dipstick in this story.

Not me for a change but the woman in front of me at the cash dispenser. She was on the phone on her way there, during her time there and after she left----non-stop. The silly bitch was so involved in her conversation that she forgot to take her notes from the machine! First I called to her and then really shouted just to get her attention. A boy behind me in the queue ran after here with the money. But she didn't see or hear him until a shopowner waved his hand inches from her face. Those things have a lot to answer for.

I'd been carrying around some of my dog's droppings in my left trouser pocket for days, possibly a week. They were in a sealed plastic bag, which is probably why I didn't notice them until it was time to change trousers.

Depending on your outlook......
I'm supposed to be saving money for a cruise in a few months time.. HOWEVER, I just found an AKAI Reel to Reel in working order for sale near me for £50...
I'd be stupid to get it but even more stupid NOT to get it!

Couple of things.

First off, I picked up a very heavy travelling case to weigh it just before flying home and pulled something in my back. It's still not right. I hear these things can take up to six weeks to sort themselves out. Eek.

Secondly (and this is where my guardian angel stepped in to save me), three days ago I opened the workroom cupboard to get myself a plaster and in breezed the youngest grandchild. Now the cupboard in question was full of Sinterklaas presents--even the sack was there! 0ur three-year-old granddaughter, who normally never misses anything, looked in but somehow didn't notice any of it. Thing is, as far as the smaller kids are concerned Sinterklaas himself provides the presents, not the parents or grandparents, so that would've been a disaster! I think I would have been thrown out of the house!
