TookieClothespin :  

Easy one.  I bought some things at Sephora today—the actual brick and mortar store.  Gawd, I had forgotten how much fun that is.  I’ve been buying everything online for some time now and Dh does the grocery shopping.  He actually enjoys it.  I’d prefer a root canal.  But, I digress.

The clerk gives me my total and what do I do?  I handed him my card.  Seriously.  Dh was there and reminded me they have machines for this now.

Then there’s that damned new fangled chip thing that I had completely forgotten about. So, I stuck my card in and yanked it right back out, triggering the telltale beeping.

The clerk was quite gracious about the whole ordeal and Dh never said another word about it.

Epic shopping fail.

CloverBells :  I honestly am. We’ve been having a lot of issues lately anyway and that just added another one.

I decided to go off roading in my Prius on the way to work (IE accidentally jumping a curb) and popped a tire. I had to be dropped off the rest of the way to work with an uber. Thank god for Raja, he gets ALL of the 5 stars.

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve wandered into the Men’s room by mistake.  A lot of times, the aroma gives it away.

This was on Sunday, not today.

Went to an open house in my neighborhood, it’s a flip. Done horrendously. On the way out the agent asked me, in a very cheery tone, what I thought of the house. I’m an ‘honesty is the best policy’ type of gal. So I told her that none of the tile matched, the house is painted butter yellow in every room which is hideous. And all of the work was done poorly. Clearly rushed and not taken seriously.

She then informed me that she designed the house and her husband was the contractor.

Cue me putting my foot in my mouth. And leaving.

KittyYogi :  “I had to stop to pee on the side of the interstate because the roads were terrible (snow storm) and I was going 30, so my trip took 3x as long. So yep, some truckers saw my ass  😳🍑

LOL! That was hilarious! Made my day! laughing

TookieClothespin :  I used to obsess over things I said or did and feel mortified all day for things that happened ages ago. I even kept a mental tally at work of all my little mistakes! However, I have come to realize that no one is really paying attention to me because they are all obsessed with themselves. This realisation has given me the freedom to laugh at myself. Things that I used to cringe at are now amusing.

I am a physical therapist that works in a hospital NICU.  Most of the time we are on a first name basis with the parents.  There is one baby I work with who has been in the NICU for 2 months now, so I’ve known the parents a while.  And for the life of me, I always get the mom’s name wrong!  I’m not even close – her name is Amanda and I always call her Stephanie!  I think it’s because she reminds me of a classmate from PT school with the name Stephanie.  It’s so embarrassing because I do it all the time!  Just yesterday she came in when I was working with her little guy and I stopped and looked at her before I said anything and she said slowly “…Amanda….” and I laughed because I knew I was going to call her the wrong name.  It makes me look terrible because I’m sure she thinks I’m a complete flake.
