    bonehead moves...

    what have you pulled and got LUCKY on?

    i was dropping a few people off at Detroit Metro Airport a few years ago, and we were naturally in a hurry.

    i walked them in the airport, hung out for about 30 or 40 minutes, then they left and i left.

    i had just gotten a brand new car, and was walking back out and said, "oh shit, i lost my keys!" then i realized the car was running...and unlocked...in the parking lot

    i'm either REALLY lucky it didn't get stolen, or everybody who walked by it said, "no way, thats a bait car!"

    Dang... you did get lucky!
    There is a show on some channel called "Bait Cars". I thought it was pretty funny how they set the cars out on the street to catch crooks. Rushing to the airport does sound like something they would try.
    Glad for you it didn't get stolen!!!

    In Detroit? You were very lucky! Whew!

    Well...lets see....I used a metal file to try to pry a burnt out fuse out of a 480v bus duct at a CNC company.....made LOTS of pretty sparks
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    Started drinking lemonad and vodka the other night. Got half way through the bottle of vodka when I realized I had ran out of lemonade. Decided to drive to the store to get more lemonade.

    Got away with that one.

    I walked into a forest, without a cell phone, food, water, or any camping supplies or experience, thinking that if I walked for about a mile on a hiking trail, I would end up on a road on the other side of the forest (based on a map I got off the internet). I got lost and wandered around for about 5 hours, including 2 hours after the sun set, before I managed to retrace my steps and get back out of the forest. I never did find the road on the other side; I think the internet map was wrong.

    I poured some spaghetti noodles into a strainer once..... while holding the strainer at the bottom in the palm of my hand. Boiling water went right through. I have no clue where that brain cramp came from.

    When I still lived in a suburb of Detroit I was coming home very late one night and just enough freezing rain and snow had fallen to make the roads quite slippery. I was on a curved divided road (Providence Dr, for those of you who know), I was in a new car, I hadn't read the user manual, and I thought it would be a good idea with those road conditions to push the "ABS" button. What I didn't realize until a few minutes later is that I'd actually deactivated the antilock brakes.

    Fortunately there was no one on the road and I was driving slowly, so when I spun out I thankfully didn't hit anything or anyone.

    HAD to of been a mapquest map.

    I could ask for directions to my neighbors house (right next door, in the city) and it would involve 8 right turns, 3 left turns, and a toll booth.

    As for one of my many boneheaded moves.

    I used to work for an electrial appliance dealer doing delivery/installation. We had a contract deal for a new subdivision and had been installing all the appliances in all the houses. We were damn near done on a Friday and busting ass to get out of there before dark, I go to install a dryer and can't find any dryer cords. Run out to the truck, find one, but didn't know if it would fit. Rather than just comparing, I plug it in the damn outlet.....without hooking it to the dryer first. I bout had to change my pants!

    Made a traffic stop one day and as I got out of my car I recognised from the rear that it was an officer from another shift (probably going home) so as I walked up on the car I said "Alright assho** where's the fuc*ing fire, Give me your license." and then this gentleman I never met said "yes officer" and handed me his DL. I think Awwwwww Sheeet and look at his license and say Mr ------ If I let you go do you think you can slow it down. He said yes he got his DL and I split. Never did that again.
