Stupid Accidents (3)

Okay, so I let you all have a laugh at my expense with the previous post. Now it's your turn...

What's the most stupid accident that you've ever been involved in?

Be honest now--we all have at least one story to share. Please let your fellow bloggers know the truth about you!

Hey Richie!

I'm usually a very cautious person (yes I know luck plays a huge part in life) but once at a girlfriend's house I was helping to cook and I removed a pot from the stove.

The handle of the pot was metal and WA-LAH ~ it burned! Needless to say that romantic dinner night was ruined.

Not sure if that's the most stupid accident I've been involved in but it hurt like heck (My Hand & My Pride)!

Michael !
QUESTION of the DAY!

I see a connection here between women and their boyfriend's getting burned!

Well... a stupid accident that I was in? I know of one. I was in school and we have this sort of after school thing called "Study hall". Anyways, I didn't know that we weren't supposed to go down to the library at that time. I did and I got yelled at practically in front of the school since there were a lot of people in the hallway getting drinks before study hall started.... Another stupid accidnt that i've been in is that I was running to school during winter and fell three times!!!

I was on a weekend away back in 2001, and had a kickass chalet at a holiday resort with its own braai (BBQ) area.

South African culture dictates that you cant have a good braai without beer- so I diligently proceeded to knock them back.

Due to an ever decreasing sobriety level, and massive smoke inhalation, I managed to lose track of my bottle opener somewhere during the course of the festivities.

So I did what any self respecting male would do- I searched for an alternative way to open the alcoholic beverages. I eventually managed to work out a way using the door frame of the chalet.

I was very impressed and satisfied with this system until I realised that it was cracking the opening of the bottle every time I did it and that there were now tiny pieces of glass submerged in my beer.

I had peptic ulcers for a while after that- either from the glass making incisions or from stress worrying about the glass doing just that...

IM NOT SURE WHICH!

Justin: You were running to school? Wow, you are an eager student! Good for you!

Adrian: I always knew South Africans were hard drinkers, but GLASS? Remind me not to have what you're having if we ever meet in a bar!!

Adrian said...

LOL!!

I guess you won't join me for whisky and cigars once my quest for world domination is complete then? : )

Richie said...

Adrian: You mean OUR quest, don't you Supreme Commander? ;)

Justin said...

Richie- LOL!!! I was running because our Ancient History unit had finally started!! Yes!:)

Adrian said...

RICHIE: Naturally!!

What would world domination be without YOU??

hi Richie,,,

my stupid accident....hem...
I remember when there was a journalist and he interviewed me about my decision to go out from a special class. I was so shy because everyone read that town magazine. I don't wanna be interviewed again

Richie said...

Hello Septian,

Doesn't seem like a stupid accident to me Septian. Don't be afraid of being interviewed. Look at the things George Bush says and he doesn't seem to mind appearing foolish!
