haha I just totally realized I signed up for a new writing forum online. My new username was supposed to be Live_Breathe_Poetry but I forgot there is a difference between breathe and breath.
Guess which one I used?! It’s not like people won’t notice…
What is your fail of the day?

Argh! Breathe/Breath catches me out all the time!
This wasn’t today, but 2 weeks ago I caught the 1.30pm bus to the train station, 2.13pm train to Melbourne, went to my 4pm class…which was cancelled. Then caught the 6.24pm train to Ballarat, and the 7.44pm bus home, I got home at 8.15pm. Round trip was 6 hours, 45 minutes, cost me $17 in bus and train fares, and was for absolutely NOTHING.

Fail of the day..is a bit of a long story.
so I’m a teacher at a Jr. High school. I teach mostly grade 8. All of the grade 9 teachers have talked all year about this girl who really doesn’t look like a girl. Actually, if the parents hadn’t of said anything…no one would be able to tell she isn’t a boy. She’s a bit heavier set..wears baggy clothes, boy haircut, boy face, boy voice…roughs around with the boys… you get the picture. They’re saying how kids have mistaken her for a boy on numerous occasions, as have teachers. I had never met her. Until today.
Two girls in one of my social studies classes came out of the bathroom freaking out that there was a boy in there. They came and told me. When I went to check, nobody was in there…. but there “he” was, sitting in a side room, getting reprimanded by another teacher. The girls said, “that’s him!”
I walked in the room, looked at the other teacher and asked “Mr. ___________, is there a reason why this boy went into the girls washroom”? The teacher looked at me with mild amusement on his face and said “This boy”? …”no Ms H2B…. this is a girl.” I thought I was going to die right there on the spot, apologized and walked away
Anyway….. the teacher came up to me after laughing hysterically. this is a student who has given him nothing but trouble and shows him much disrespect so… he said he kind of almost enjoyed the moment. By the end of the day all teachers were making fun of me, but also trying to lighten things up by letting me know they had all made the same mistake with her… just not as blatant as I did. I asked the guidance councelor of the school if I should apologize, and she said it would probably make it worse….that I should just leave it be. She’s used to this anyway….and doesn’t really seem to get offended.
I feel like an awful person but all of the other teachers seemed to be pretty amused by my mistake.
Anyway, that’s my fail of the day!

Hehe, you could just be “Live (as in, alive) Breath Poetry” instead 🙂
Since you’re just starting there, can you just re-register?

Last night I dropped my kid, and I use that term loosely because she’s 17 and not my child, off at art class for the first time. Then when it was time to pick her up, I drove around for 45 minutes trying to find the place again… it was only about 4 blocks away.

Oh my life is full of fails (luckily I have a pretty good sense of humour) so just yesterday I was rushing to get to my school’s pub to get some cheap wings (yay for tuesdays!) before they closed. All the entrances were shut off and I get the brillant idea to go through the bathrooms because it shares it with the student center. Not looking at which door I was going into, I ended up half way through the boys bathroom before I realized my mistake. And of course I ended up freaking out a guy before I rushed out as fast as I could. Even worse? They ran out of wings!
My friends find me very amusing.

@SweetRose2011: Oh that sucks! Haha some people might not notice but others definitely would.
Last night I wanted to make sweet potato latkes (pancakes) for Fat Tuesday but they were a big fat fail. I was so disappointed because I was craving them and have made them many times before. I dont know what went wrong!

This is a great thread! I just started a new job…..I couldn’t remember my proper credentialing for my work online signature (This will go on ALL of my online work documents). So I wrote: Corykru BSC/MA. All fine and dandy……til I texted my friend afterwards and she said “Oh, Cory, we are MS, not MA” LOL. Yeah…..gotta figure out how to fix that :-X.

My fail for the week was on Sunday. My Fiance and I go to alot of film festivals and we went to one this weekend that happens to be in the city where his sister lives. We had a great time at the film festival, as we always do, and decided to treat his sisters family to tickets to one of the films, which was a documentary called El Bulli, which is suppose to be about this world famous restaurant. We thought since they were all big fans of Top Chef this would be something they’d love. Well, the documentary was horrible. Embarassingly boring and honestly, I would have left after the first 10 minutes but I felt like-geez, we talked 5 people into coming with us, we can’t just leave. Anyway, I felt embarrassed that we talked them into coming with us and it was just so awful. On the bright side, the rest of the film festival was fantastic and I saw some great films.

My fail for the month: I’m pretty busy, as are my bridesmaids, so anytime I plan things with them I try to do it a month in advance. Last month I asked them all to set aside a specific day so we could shop for their dresses, which they all did. We were supposed to go this weekend. I realized last week that I have a midterm that day so I had to change it. I looked at the calendar and picked another day, sent another email only to realize two seconds after I sent it that I couldn’t do that day either. That prompted yet another email and date change. Lucky for me they’re all good sports and just laughed at me but geesh! FAIL!
