The other day I had to meet with a friend for a college project. I had been at her house once before, so I knew the way there: two blocks from the bus stop, then three blocks to the right, and bingo! I arrived at the street where she lives. However, while I knew it was a corner house, I forgot on which side of the street! So, I looked for the paper where I had written her address... just to find I had lost it.  banghead 

Instead of making a fool of myself by knocking at the wrong door, I tried to remember some more details about the house. "Let me see... I think it was a pink house..."

Oh surprise, both houses were pink.

"Ok then... the door! It had a wooden door!"

Uh-huh... both houses had wooden doors.

"Damn! But there was something about the house... That's it! The house number! It had something to do with airplanes!"

After congratulating myself for being so smart, I went checked the house numbers... Guess what?

One house was numbered 7-37, and the other was numbered 7-47. D'oh!

I had to admit defeat, and phone my friend to check her address (it turned out to be 7-47).

So, that's my Homer Simpson moment of the week. Any good stories you want to share?

Last night, one side of our kitchen sinks plugged when my mom left bok choy all over it. It was sooooo growse, the ENTIRE sink was covered in shredded bok choy mixed with water. We woke up, and all the water was gone, and so she told me to turn on some water and turn the garbage disposal on, so I did, and washed a bit of the bok choy down the sink. I was standing over the sink, watching it all go down, when suddenly the disposal made a weird sound, and from the hole in the other sink, all the bok choy that went DOWN the sink, came blasting UP. I was covered in green slime, as were all the clean dishes, and most of the kitchen. This beat when I turned an egg beater on high, and then poured loose flour in. Being coverd in white powder is better than green slime.

I mean, the whole situation was slightly hilarious, and definitely seemed like a scene from a cartoon, but uck, I was thinking "Damn, why me."

Where did this happen? Every country I've been to, 737 and 747 both being odd numbers would be on the same side of the street - not opposite sides.

Maybe same side, opposite ends of the block, cornering different cross streets?

I don't know if it'll work, but I've read threads here where somebody did the same, and Apple actually replaced the iPod. Try it.

Out of all the electronics, the acer behaved best in the accident. It still booted  Smile but the screen was smashed, as it was in tablet mode.
I dropped it off one of those buildings with a swimming pool in the roof. A few cocktails might not have helped either....

I had a doozy of one today. Our sales manager was riding along on the route with me today (If I take some time off, he'll be the one to run my route) and we were trying to get some clips for some retail signs and I put the route book for my Thursday routes on the roof of the van. We leave the account and not too far down the street a guy tells me that something dropped off the roof a few miles back. I had forgotten to retrieve the notebook from on top of the roof. We backtrack and find the route book. Most of the pages were scattered about on the side of the road and the notebook was flattened. They're going to have to replace the notebook and all of the route cards in the book because the only way to get the ones that are still in the notebook would be to tear them out. The worst part of the whole thing was that I lost one of my good pens.
