What was your most amazing screw-up today?
« on: October 19, 2012, 01:57:33 AM »
Have you had a "What the hell did I do?" sort of moment today? You know, one of those spectacular mistakes that you feel the need to share with the world?  Yeah, this is your thread to share it in. 


I'll start.   Today, I somehow managed to erase ALL the contact names from my iPhone.  I'm currently trying to restore and re-sync it, but I really don't know if this is going to be fixable.  I only know the phone numbers of three people in it by heart, and none of them is my husband.  Does this make me a bad person? *headdesk*

Ouch!

I don't know any mobile phone numbers by heart, and only about five landlines - I don't know my own mobile or works numbers, I put all of them into my phone and then write down a hardcopy Just In Case, because I had a sim go wrong and eat all my data about eight years ago and have been paranoid ever since.

I (like the extreme clutz I am) broke a shiny new serving dish... But I didn't know that there was a dish in the basket that I tipped and there was glass everywhere. I didn't know the glass was there because I didn't know the bowl broke at first, so I cut my foot up on the glass.

On the bright side, I got a new pair of shoes!

Agreed.  I'm not sure even a new pair of shoes would make that better for me, but then again I've lived with a piece of glass in my foot for months once.  Bleh

You better be sharing this soon.  And how is this the boards fault?  We are not to blame for anything. ;)



Just letting you all know, though.  I did get my contacts back. All except the number I got earlier this week, because it wasn't on the back up.   I'm not sure I like the new iPhone OS, but I can't exactly fix that.

Go look in the marry/shag/cliff thread. XD

YAY for contacts recovery! ...I don't want to think about glass in a foot for months. Just. Nope. DDDDDDD:

I-I pried all the glass out right away... But the miniature cuts are still there.

Why do smaller cuts hurt WAY MORE than bigger ones?

TODAY I KNOCKED OVER PART OF A WALL WHILE DRIVING.

which needs caps because I CAN'T BELIEVE I DID THAT.

it's a REALLY low wall - we live on a hill, and it's the wall between our drive and our neighbours' down the hill, and where you go out onto the road it's maybe ten inches high our side - more for them - and reversing off our drive and trying to curve back about the car which was parked behind the hedge (so on the road) I just went too wide and caught it with the very front corner of the car - my little brother's car - which now has some INTERESTING SCRATCHES. But no dents. The front metre just went THUMP.

...I've been pulling off the drive in the same manner for over a year and a half now. I'm not sure whether to be surprised it took me so long to do that, or mad that I waited until I should know better... >.<

I think that only counts as a true screwup if there were flames involved.   Other than that....

I ate ice cream yesterday.... I haven't had it in so long. But all the sugar gave me an almost sugar hangover this morning and... lactose. That was a dumb move.

My greatest screw up of the day is....

I dropped my iPod Touch in the bath tub. Not the smartest move.
Time to hold a funeral for it. (Unless putting it in rice will help suck the moisture out of it.)

I still have my kindle fire, so I can stay in touch with you guys.

But does anyone know of any remedies to the waterlogged issue?

Well today I accidentally spilled some of the Ragu sauce I heated up for pasta ..am so annoyed with myself but I do have some leftover from the previous bottle so that should be more than enough for the rest of the pasta which is 3 days worth.

It was a few weeks ago, but I still feel like sharing.
