    Not that I don't do something stoopid every day, but I wanna go back a few days for the dumbest thing I've done in a while. Now, every time I pull into our parking garage at work, I've got a routine. Grab the keys, grab my 20 ounce Pepsi from the passenger seat and cell phone from the dash, lock the doors and I'm off. Sunday, I got a call as I'm pulling into the garage. Still on the phone when I parked, I grabbed the keys, got my soda and looked on my dash. No phone (of course). I then proceed to say to the person I'm talking to ON MY CELL "Shit! I left my window down when I stopped for gas! I think someone stole my phone when I went in to pay!"

    After a moment of confusion, the caller finally asked... "Uh, what are you talking to me on?"

    "Oh. Nevermind."

    Wow. Dumbest I've ever felt, I think.

    We have a winner!

    The rest of you, thanks for playing and drive home safely... with your seatbelt and cellphones on.

    Ha! Good one, K-lick.

    Though if you were talking to him on the 20-ounce Pepsi, it might be a smidge better.

    If he'd been talking on his Pepsi, he'd have heard the sounds of a new generation.

    Wow, dude. That is stoopid.

    My stoopid moment that covers the last five or six months. I have one car key to the car I purchased in December. I locked my keys in my car last Friday. Still haven't purchased an extra key.

    Here's the worst part, when I went back, there was a shift change and the vendor I gave the $20 to was gone.

    So fuck that guy up and take your 20 ... Jeebus, do I have to do everything for you?

    Here's my stoopid of the day...

    I overslept this morning to the point of practically running straight from my bed to the car. When I woke up, I realized how late it was, so I jumped up, grabbed the closest pair of jeans and shirt I could find and literally got dressed on my way down the hall to the garage.

    I was thinking I had a particular pair of shoes in my gym bag (in the car), so I just grabbed the keys and took off. Well (after leaving the house) I reached behind my seat to drag my gym bag to the front for my shoes and guess what...no gym bag. You know what that means? No shoes.

    Luckily I still had a pair of sandals stuffed under the seat that have been there for weeks.

    first off, quit being a jack ass. I thought you had more class than that. Secondly, $20 will not make or break me. I don't need an arrest record. I go to the guy quite often so I'm sure this will be straightened out.
