    The crew maid or man made a monkey for my lil brother, and a swan for me, just from a bunch of towels.

    I was traveling through Italy and I was using a GPS device. Well the device kept giving me vocal messages on where to turn. There was one instance where the device kept giving directions  on a roundabout on a freeway but the directions  kept bringing me back to the same place. So I was basically going round and round in circles for a good 30 minutes blindly following the GPS until my wife turned to me and said that it looked like we are going in circles. When we realized what was going on, we all started to laugh because we were blindly following a electronic device.

    My daughter and I were at the Monterey Pier taking pictures of the sea lions and on the way back we saw a guy slumped over sitting on the pier where the boats are docked.  We waited to see if anyone would come by to help him, we couldn't get close enough and had to head in the other direction to catch our bus.  It seemed as though he was drunk, but we didn't want him to fall in the water.  So we wound up calling 911 and explained the situation wasn't an emergency but thought someone should wake him.  The 911 lady was so nice and said she'd call us back and let us know that all was ok.  As we were running to catch our bus, the fire engine and emergency vehicles passed us and went to help him.  And surprisingly the 911 lady did call us back...to let us know it was a coast guard training dummy and not a real person on the dock...lol...and to say they would be sure to keep it out of sight in the future!

    Once when I went on a camping trip, we arrived a bit late in the afternoon, and we set up the tent in a hurry so it would be done before dark.  Well, we had not paid close enough attention to the tent site, and ended up with one of the tent pegs right down an ant hill.
    By the time we finished dinner, the whole outside of the tent was covered in swarming ants.  We had to brush them off, and re-locate the tent, so we ended up pitching the tent by flashlight, after all.

    When I was 22 and backpacking with a Eurail pass in the mid 1980s, I got on the wrong train from Italy. I was supposed to end up in Nice, but somewhere before the French border , we turned NORTH! There were no more stops until we got to where ever our destination was. After about 2 more hours, we arrived somewhere in a valley between the major and minor alpine mountains in Italy.

    The train would be going back to my starting point in a couple of hours. I had a heavy back pack and NO money (as I'd been pick pocketed by some American girls the night before). So, with my backpack, I wandered around the uninteresting modern village until my train left again.

    After the trip all the way back, I got on the CORRECT train and headed toward Nice. By this time, I'd been travelling for a long time and hadn't been able to afford the shower the previous night. So I was not at my best.

    As I sat, grumpy, just waiting to finally get to Nice, I remarked at some incredibly cute Italian guys seated near me. They kept laughing at me and pointing at me. This did NOT help my grumpiness!

    Suddenly, the guys jumped up at and ran over to me, trying to see the sign at the small train station we'd just stopped at. They looked at me and asked in their broken English, "I this such and such town?" I looked up at them and smiled, "yes," thinking it was.

    They ran off with all their duffle bags and soccer balls, barely getting off in time.

    And as we pulled out of the station, I looked at the train station sign and saw, much to my satisfaction, it actually was NOT the town they were looking for. I thought, "Ya, Kharma's a bitch, isn't it!"
