The Award for Stupid Goes To…

    1. absolutely…but you know me…in the moment I was a little annoyed with myself for letting such a stupid thing happen…but in the end it was pretty funny.

  1. I love that you can laugh about this. I would have been SO angry at myself. I know because two years ago I went to back our car out of the carport and I admit – I was in a hurry (though I hate being late, as well, it doesn’t keep me from being so most of the time). My husband had wedged both our car and our SUV into the small carport because we had had to jump-start the SUV the night before and it was the only way to get the two batteries close enough to each other. While I was being cautious of hitting the SUV on my left, I neglected to note how my husband had driven the car in at an angle and THEN straightened it, in order to avoid hitting the passenger’s side mirror on a support pole of the carport. Unfortunately I didn’t remember this until I heard a REALLY painful sounding “CRUNCH!” and looked over to find my mirror dangling from the side of the car by a proverbial thread. There was glass all over the ground and I think I actually cringed. I looked up to see if my husband had witnessed the deed…sure enough, he was standing at the dining room window, looking out at me with a look that said, “Really? How long have you been driving again?” I didn’t even bother getting out of the car. I just kept right on reversing and went on my not-so-merry way. The good news: We now know how to replace a power side mirror on a 2003 Toyota Camry.

    Thanks for the ping-back; I enjoyed your blog.

    1. Oh wow…I think I would have done the same thing as you only more cursing probably would have been involved

      You are most welcome for the ping…I like your stuff 🙂

  2. Thanks for the ping-back, Mike & for the glimpse into your hectic morning life.
    Like you, whenever I have my ‘not-all-there’ moments they tend to occur in front of as many people as possible.
    Also like you, I am lucky to have my better half along for the ride much of the time. She always helps to keep things light & in perspective.
    Great post.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Joseph…and glad you have an understanding wife like I do. They certainly are very helpful in smoothing the waters many times. Thanks for checking in, and for the kind words. I sincerely appreciate it 🙂

  3. Mikey! Thanks for the laugh! I read this and just started thinking about all the funny stuff at Coe of which I still have evidence on! Oh I could just imagine the shades of red you turned! Keep on writing its great!

    It is healthier for us when we can laugh at ourselves to help counteract all the stress!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Glenda 🙂

      Considering the stuff you “have” on me…that, I believe is a two-way street

      I am a huge fan of self depreciating humor to lighten up tough situations…
