[stupidity] some people never learn


How's this for stupidity?

A guy breaks a glass in his kitchen and the bits go under the table. He doesn't pick any of the bits up because he's in the middle of some project and then he just forgets until late evening. Barefooted, he then goes to the kitchen for a coffee.

He's still extracting bits next morning.

Just before he goes to work, the jug containing the bit of Christmas tree the love of his life brought him and which was adorned with metal plasticky type baubles - the whole thing decides to fall from the window sill to the kitchen floor and bits of metally plastic go everywhere.

No time, he has to go to work.

Comes home, kicks off shoes and takes off socks - yes, you've got it - goes into the kitchen to put the kettle on. He's still extracting bits this morning.

Yes - it is me. This guy needs training wheels and a nanny!

You mean all of us. And by that I mean men.

Why do you think God created women? To help us... A lot...

I think if women knew that that was God's intended purpose, she would have furiously negotiated those terms.

Rob, not all of us. Some. :)

Beyond treatment, I'd say.

Go to vet and ask to be put down.

Let me express my hope that, at present, you are being chaperoned by an armed bodyguard...

Are you leaving it till "the cleaning girls" come by? You'll be lucky to survive. More accidents in the home than anywhere else.

True story: A fellow is getting dressed, putting on sox, he stands on one foot to do so. Overbalances and puts out hand straight through the mirror next to him. Cuts artery in wrist and bleeds to death on bedroom floor.

For some reason that story made me realize that there is no way you can prevent every accident, even though at the time I was chairperson of the Hospital Occupational Health and Safety Committee and we reviewed each accident to see how it could be prevented from happening again.

Sometimes it's just not possible.

I hated those metal baubles- very dangerous,like light bulbs.
Did you have a real tree, James?
Do they have candy canes in Russia?

And are you going to tell us about your "ideal nanny" next?

I did even better with our glass garden table. While a little drunk I thrust the shade umbrella through the middle a little aggressively and the whole thing shattered like a car window. Not so dangerous in itself, but my wife's look when she came over....

Still picking shards of glass out of your feet? I was hoping for another post by now. :)
