What is the single stupidest thing you've ever heard or seen somebody do?
I had a roommate who shot himself in the foot. My mom, who worked in a hospital, came home with stories of people coming into the ER with things shoved up their butts. One guy got a light bulb up there.
One of my mates got banned from a nightclub for a month for trying to steal a 'Fire Exit' sign. He tried to smuggle it out by stuffing it down his jeans, the bouncers caught him and chucked him out. As he started walking home, I pointed out that his jeans were ripped, and everybody could see his ass hanging out as he walked down the street. But he didn't care, he was completely drunk.
I know someone who tried to forge a check at a bank, when they realized the teller was going to check with the customer who supposedly wrote out the check the boy ran off but dropped his id ... needlest to say their was a warrant for this arrest issued later that day!!
And the same boy after robbing a little old lady in a grocery parking while driving his car, bumped the lady, sped out of the parking lot as a police cruiser was entering .. thus began a chase he hit a police cruiser jump out and ran .. but left his back pack in the car, id and release paper from jail .. one of America's dumbest .. he ended up going to prison for 5 yrs.
Your question is under politics and social issues. SO The stupidest thing is voting for DemoCANS & RepubliCRATS.
I watched a fellow employee pull into our parking lot reading a book. After he parked his truck, he put his book aside and finished the cereal from the bowl in his lap. I once saw this same guy driving his old truck bouncing down the street with his young kid also bouncing around in the back of the truck. One time he was telling me how he had to get his roof done even though night was falling. He proudly told me how he ingeniously solved the problem. I swear to God. He secured the lamp to the top of his head by wrapping the electric cord under his chin and around the lamp. I asked him what he thought would have happened if he slipped off the roof. He just stood there blinking at me. I don't know what happened to him; he didn't last long at the job. He's either dead or a manager.
Going to work one morning, I had to wait at a stop light. A woman in a car in the opposite lane was:
a. smoking a cigerette (right hand)
b. applying mascara (wand in right hand, tube in left)
c. drinking a cup of coffee (also right hand!)
d. talking on a cell phone (held to left ear by left shoulder)
e. steering with the heel of her left hand on the wheel
When the light went green, she continued on her merry (and EXTREMELY dangerous) way!
One of my ex-colleagues was a bit of a vehicle nut and needed to work on the underside of his vehicle. He had no auto jack or supports to raise it so he could get underneath.
His answer to this problem was to go into the house, strip the beds and take all the mattresses outside onto his driveway. After laying the mattresses alongside the vehicle he enlisted some helpers and rolled the vehicle on its side onto the mattresses.
Once he finished the work the mattresses were returned to the beds.
In a hurry for work, as a I jumped out of the car after parking it and went to slam the door, I realised I.d left my coat on the passenger seat. In my mad rush, my brain got confused between slamming the door and running to work and reaching into the car to grab my coat. The end result was that I leant in and slammed the car door on my own head.
To anyone watching, they were seeing a crazy guy get out of his car, bend over, slam his head in the door deliberately then start screaming.
I use to live on a spring fed lake in Florida. I like to build things so I built a dock. Then I helped my next door neighbor build a dock. After that I was building a dock almost every weekend. I had lots of help. One weekend I got in my canoe to go to a house on the east end of the lake to help build a dock. As I approached the area I saw my neighbor out on the lake in an aluminum john boat with an electric drill. The cord was in the water. He was drilling a hole in a new piling. I didn’t go near the boat. I yelled across the water from someone on shore to pull the plug on the drill. After I explained to him that he was going to get electrocuted if he continued to use the electric drill that way, he decided to use my hand operated brace and bit, a little slower but a whole lot safer.
My ex girlfriend driving 90mph down the motorway, while trying to get the blue tooth on her ipod to work, so she could play for me her "favourite song". Wasn't even a very good song.
lmfao @ doctor darts....now that's funny! I'm quite sure many can relate to making their brain multi task in the craziest way and without a doubt it did exactly what you wanted it to. lol
I do contract work for a lot of oil fields and anyone who works for the oil fields they know that safety is number one across the board. Anyway, I walked onto another crew's jobsite and apparently the ladder that they had wouldn't reach as far as they needed. So instead of getting a man lift or even a larger ladder this guy thought it was wise to place the six foot ladder in the back of his pickup truck. Did I mention that it was raining at the time. Hens, to say the guy got to the top of the ladder and slipped. The accident report reported the incident as a scrotal injury that only needed first aid.
I used to work at McDonalds. Someone ordered a cheeseburger w/o cheese!
