MM -  Is that similar to forgetting to remove your nail apron before you go pee?

I had a good laugh one day out on the mill, the helper was wearing a Stihl helmet with the ear protectors and a screen face shield.

Well, this guy chewed (do I need to say more) well he spit without raising the screen!  ROFL    smiley_roller

First thing the guy did was look to see if I saw it!   laugh_at   I did!

In the end, we both had a good laugh!

   Last night at the fish fry our 7 y/o gd Molly asked her grandma for her truck keys so she could get her stuff out and transfer to her mom's car. Becky gave her the keys and showed her how to push the remote 2 times to unlock the front then the back doors. A few minutes later Molly and sister Abbie returned and said it was not working. Becky quizzed her on how she had tried to use it then decided her remote had died and asked me for mine and I reminded her I don't have a remote for my truck. They discussed the issue some more and finally I reminded her we had driven my truck, not hers, which was why the remote was not working so Molly borrowed my key and went and got her stuff. Becky had my key on her ring too so really no need for mine. Becky and my DIL had a good laugh when they realized what they had done. I am not sure Molly thought it was so funny.

Well - this is along the lines of WV's situation, I didn't do it, but was pulled in as an observer.  Couple weeks back my wife and I made a run to town for groceries and such.  Well we are in Sams wandering around the store and I had parked the cart to grab something and another guy had parked their cart by mine.  Other guy walks back to the carts and begins to stroll away smiling with my cart, now I am watching this and thinking "hua, this is going to be interesting" he got maybe 10 feet away when either wifey or girlfriend comes around the corner, looks at the cart, looks up at him, looks back at the cart, then back up at him.  Suddenly a black cloud formed around her, the winds picked up, lightning and thunder broke out and her face peeled off, skin, muscles, suddenly bare bone showed as she elevated several feet off of the ground in a true Poltergeist or Indiana Jones type of scene.  This response from her caused "other guy" to look at the shopping cart he was pushing and evaluate the contents, or lack there of, in the cart - no big deal right, he has the wrong stuff, the store has plenty more.  Only problem was the cart he left behind contained a child in it, clearly hers, and now I am not sure if it's his or not.  In what can only be described as one small step for mankind, one giant leap for "other guy" he instantly realizes his error and sprints back to his child containing cart, looks at me knowing that he is about to walk into the light, and pushes away.  Now he has two carts, a demonic presence hovering over him, and no idea what to do, so he leaves his cart with the raging storm coddling the child, pure Ghost Busters by now, and returns my cart and sort of mumbles something along the lines of "sorry".  Well, I am really trying not to laugh and my wife is just about to my side by this time dumbfounded.  They leave and we have a good laugh about it at his expense.  

We finish our shopping and head across the what - 15 acre parking lot - get to the van and what to my wondering eyes should appear? But "other guy" and his "Dear".  So we load the stuff into the cooler bags that we bring and nobody is really saying much, "other guy" fills his vehicle in record time and is about to push the cart away when my good nature came out - was just trying to be helpful - and I asked him "Sure you got everything?"  So he kind of laughs and says "yea" and while managing to keep a straight face I looked right at him and said "I am not sure how, but you realize she is going to kill you, right?" to which he just kind of stared at me and gave a nervous half smile.  My wife overheard me and later said that was not nice, but it sure seemed like the thing to say at the moment.   ;D

   While we are talking about shopping carts, remember if you are bored in WalMart while your wife shops to entertain yourself you can do things like sneak pregnancy test kits into old couples buggies, condoms into the priests cart, a bottle of wine in the Baptist preacher's cart, etc. then watch when they get to the checkout line.

  I had a friend in Albany GA who ran the dry cleaners and he had a fake pair of ladies bloomers about 100" waist size and he'd get a stack of clothes, shake them and the bloomers would fall out and he'd pick them up and stretch them out for all to see. Once he did that and the man who dropped off the clothes got beet red, grabbed the bloomers, stuffed them in his shirt and walked out. We always wondered what his wife looked like.

  Years ago in church after helping with the offering a distracted member came back and sat down in his pew only he was one row off and the lady he was sitting beside was not his wife who was in the row behind. This was an honest and harmless error and nobody thought much of it till he looked over and saw the strange woman beside him then he literally screamed, jumped up and ran to the seat behind him. The error was easy to make and correct with a simple "Excuse me" but his reaction was priceless and broke up the entire congregation.

I usually do the shopping cart thing with my wife just to see how long it takes her to notice some absolutely ridiculous item in there, things like a 5 lb chocolate cake or 20" cookie.  One time I found a pair of massive clown slippers and tossed them in, these things were huge, she didn't pick up on it for a while, and when she did I put them in a random, unattended cart - never leave your cart unattended or your vehicle un locked at the county fair - you never know how many Zucchini you will find in there when you return :D.  I was still in observation range when the cart driver returned.  He picked those up and with a bewildered look was searching for the vandal, who was nowhere to be found while hiding in plain sight.... ;D

This one makes me shudder, I almost absentmindedly  asked if a young lady was "expecting" the other day while making small talk over  a new kitten in the office, she had her 3 year old in tow. I have never made that mistake before, turns out  she was.  She volunteered the information herself. Several years  ago I witnessed one of those incidents and vanished like a puff of smoke  outside to get something out of my vet truck. I was "not" the guilty party.  ::)

In private practice at one point or another, all of my nurses made that mistake at least once, and for most only once. i think as long as it is not your wife, you are ok.  i usually exclaim, "What did you have for lunch?"   but i am sure i will get in trouble for that one someday.  i usually already know they are pregnant.  I fear someday they may relate that indeed it was over lunch... ;) :) 8)

So I share my birthday week with my daughter in law and the two step daughters of my best friend.  So my best friend and his wife threw a birthday bash for the four of us - me, my daughter in law and my friends step daughters.   Did I say the three women are between 26 and 31?

When the carrot cake birthday cakes came out, the three girls started trying to smear cream cheese icing on each other.  I had faded into the background.  The three of them decided that I needed to have cream cheese icing smeared on my face too!

Apparently, I didn't protest enough.......

My dumb thing for today was making all the parts for 8 rail and stile cabinet doors.  The dumb part was making all of the rails one inch too short.  Consequently I will be making them all again tomorrow.  Planing, jointing, cutting, milling at the router table.
