Before I had a car with a remote to lock/unlock it, I used to lock my keys in the car all the time just out of habit of pressing the button when I got out. Once at the gas pump, luckily the window was slightly cracked and we were able to get a coathanger in there to grab the keys. Once with the car running and I didn’t notice until hours later when I went back out to the car. And another time after getting rearended we pulled off to the side, I slipped on the ice getting out of my car and then locked the keys in the car. 🙁

I would say that at least a quarter of the time when I pull something from the oven, I forget to turn off the oven. It drives my husband nuts.

JenGirl:  I did that once in a tiny studio apartment with one of those old tiny ovens with no lights or screens or window, so you can’t tell that it’s on other than it being hot. I left it on for 24 hours and kept wondering why the apartment was SO HOT!

Hmm.. I’ve never intentially done anything crazy like pump and not pay, or dine and dash. But I have accidentally left my curling wand on.. thank god I remembered before the left the house.

jenilynevette:  lol, I’ve left my hair iron on all day to find it still on after work several times.  Aside for a waste of electricity, it doesn’t cause any damange – just a nice warm spot on my laminate counter top.

My dumb moment was just locking the keys in my car, once with the car running.  My car was smart, and wouldn’t let you lock the doors from the driver side if the door was open, you *had* to use the key once you were out and closed the door.  My smart ass would reach over to the passenger side to lock it so I could put the keys away while still seated in the car.  So if I got distracted on the way out, I’d leave the keys in the ignition, reach and lock, and get out.  Luckily I have keyless entry now so I never have to worry about keys as long as I have my purse now.

I thought of another one!

When I was in high school, I would often go to bed and fall asleep in my room with the TV on, my stepdad was often up late and would come in and turn it off when he went to bed. One night this happened and instead of shutting off the TV, I thought he was trying to wake me up (even though I had an alarm). So I stayed in bed for like 5 mins more and then got up and ready to go to school. Once I was ready to leave, I went in to my parents room to tell them I was leaving (the fact that they were still sleeping didn’t give me a hint apparently). My mother was very confused and low and behold it was 12:30 am! I’ll never live that one down!
