It's Amazing I Don't Drown in the Raingreenspun.com : LUSENET : Hedgehog Talk : One Thread
I am leaving for Scotland on Friday, and Sunday I realized that I cannot find my passport, so now I'm doing this big rush around to get a new one before I go.
What is the dumbest thing that you have ever done?

They've all been so painfully embarrassing I've blotted them out.

totally ragged on a famous local-hero football player, one who'd been in all the papers and news constantly while asking to be transferred to another area in my job... and did all this in front of said football player, whom I didn't recognize... whom I admitted to not even knowing who he was or caring... having done said admitting one nanosecond before someone pointed out that (a) he was sitting right there and (b) he was going to be my new boss in the new area.
It was a summer job and I was supposed to have the cushy errand-running job. I ended up having the not-so-cushy dirt-shoveling job.

This one is pretty dumb and possibly leaving a permanant scar, but.. I saw those ads on TV for Epil Stop. It is a cream that is supposed to melt away your hair, so you don't have to shave for like a couple of weeks or something like that. And the container tells you to do a test on some inconspicuous part of your body to test for allergic reactions. Of course, I don't need to do that, I am impervious, I am superman, I never have a reaction to anything chemical based. Until this time.... I put that stuff all over my face, cause I like being clean shaven, and hate to shave.. and count off 200 seconds. The most you should leave it on your face is five minutes, so I figure this is playing it safe. It feels nice and soothing while it is on my face and then I rinse it off, and my whole face feels like it is on fire. I get in the shower and I'm running cold water on my face for like five or ten minutes. afterwards I'm putting aloe, and rinse that off , then facial cream wait awhile rinse that off, more aloe, vitamin E and A lotion, bacitracin. you know, A to Z to help dry skin , a burn an infection (the gamet) and I save most of my face, but a spot about as big as two quarters side by side is blistered and scabby. This happened Sunday morning. It's now Wednesday night, and I'm hoping not to get a scar from that toxic shit. ( well , it was partly my fault, but I did try it on my arm at the same time, and it did no damage at all there.)In six weeks I am playing the Genie in the local production of Aladdin, I hope it's healed up and not scarred by then... dumb dumb dumb... (wait a second, maybe my first marraige was the dumbest thing I ever did...now I have to start this essay all over again)... Britt Oh, I don't especially recommend EpilStop, it burned me like hell, and the hair neveer went away.. it's growing right through my burn now.. nice, huh ?

Hair removal products on T.V. are absolutely terrible. NEVER BUY NADS BECAUSE IT BURNS LIKE HELL AND IT LEFT ME ALL BLISTERY AND SCABBY. THE CREAM IS SHIT AND SO IS THE WOMAN WHO INVENTED IT. WHEN I ASKED FOR MY MONEY BACK THEY WOULDN'T GIVE IT BACK. I USED NADS LIKE A WEEK AGO AND MY SCABS ARE STILL HERE AND MY FACE IS RED. I DON'T EVEN GO OUT IN PUBLIC. I AM GOING TO THE PROFESSIONAL--A DERMATOLOGIST NOT SOME WOMAN WHO FOOLS AROUND IN HER KITCHEN TO CONCOCT A HAIR REMOVAL FORMULA. NOBODY SHOULD BUY THIS MY BEAUTIFUL FACE IS RUINED!

I live in a small town of missouri where there is nothing to do and when you look for something to do you usually end up in trouble. REMEMBER NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE! On Dec. 6, 2003 it began snowing out and roads were getting little slick. I just got off work and decided to get some beer and go down to the river and drink. I got down to the river and consumed bunch of beer and thought i'd get a little closer to the river so people couldn't see me real easy, mind you this is the country. I got a little closer and my truck started sinking like quicksand in the gravel. I had to ask a farmer to pull me out with his tractor and had to make up a stupid story saying what happend without saying i was drinking otherwise he'd call the law. Later on that night I got some more beer and decided i'd go the backway to the store which is up a steep hill and there is a large ditch just down below before you get up the hill. Being intoxicated i tried to climb this hill with my truck-no way this was happening. I got up half way when my wheels kept turning and i wasn't going anywhere. I eventually after many tries gave up and parked the truck upwards on the hill, i got out slipped on my ass still holding a beer, i laughed my ass off with just myself and thought i'd better get up and call for some help. A tow truck arrives to help me get up the rest of the way up this hill, i look a little closer and a cop is standing there too, oh shit!, so he was kindly enough to help direct the tow truck driver and me, so, i got up hill and took off. Later on this night about 2:00 a.m. I am wasted, i am doing doughnuts in a gas station parking lot where i worked and store was closed so i was safe that way. Remembering i had more beer in this camper trailer where i was temparly staying for a few days because of family situations, so here i am spinning round and round and then thought i'd climb some of the snow piles for fun, well i wound up getting stuck on one and thanks the the same tow truck driver which is my friend tapped me enough to knock me back over the other side. About an hour later after that I went up town to well...get some more beer and got stopped by the same officer that helped me out earlier up the hill, REPEAT never drink and drive, he caught me with an open container, drunker as ever, and i was so pissed i got caught after all this fun i had to start something with the sheriff's department that got me strapped in this fine chair for most of the night. This is my most dumbest, stupidest, fucked up thing i have ever done and in one night!
