Question Whats the dumbest......

thing you have done lately?

OK, I'll start.....

Was at work today, and at lunchtime I wandered over to the car, opened the back door & got in, sat there & ate lunch, read a little & called my wife.

After lunch, I got out....or rather didn't.......

CHILD LOCKS ON THE BACK DOORS.........


20 mins later, I managed to escape.....






Next................

Dang, got to hate these cars sometimes.
Japanese cars have the steering wheel on the right side,
kind of hard to drive when I jump into the pax left side.
Even after two years, If i am a little tired after a long day, oh well what the heck.

Sittin down next to my truck, welding a patch panel to the door. Smelled something burning. Lifted my helmet and discovered my crotch was on fire. Extreme panic sets in. Dump very hot cup of coffee on crotch to extinguish flames. Wife laughs hysterically.

you're killing me Knuckles
the dumbest thing I can think of, was.......... I was under a car putting a set of coils in & grabbed a crow bar (wrecking bar) to pry it out when it slipped off & slapped me in the side head . Man did I see stars after I sat back up after hitting the floor. Best part was, I didnt bend the crow bar.....joe

If I didn't do dumb things, I wouldn't be doing anything at all !

When erecting my 30x40 polebarn last year, I should have put down the gravel inside the building 1st, then built the building. It would have been alot easier to build the building and everything else.
I should have listened to my wife and buddies who told me that I would enlarge it. (Too small) And they said I would heat it. An emphatic "NO WAY" was my answer. We were installing the insulated ceiling last night... Tonight is moving the electrical and adding/upgrading for more lights..... The insulated walls are going in next week... The heater should be here in 2-3 weeks....

When I added 20' on to my 36x26 garage 4 years ago, my wife and buddies said I should add more. "Nahhhhh!!! I'll never need more than a 56x26 garage...." Remember that previous paragraphs?

I bought a J/D 790 Compact tractor last year. Figured that it would be the nuts for snow removal. Bucket on the front/blower on the rear. Sold my 4 wheeler w/ 4' wide snowblower on the front. After trying to blow 4" of snow, the tractor KILLED my neck from turning around all the time (to blow backwards). Too 4 times as long, even though the blower was a foot wider. Bought a new wheeler and blower combo. SWEET ! Back to 20 min. to do 4500 s.f. driveway. Tractor came in handy when we got 66" snow in 36 hours time though (See gallery pics).

I was raking some topsoil years ago. Threw the rake down, not paying attention. Came back later with a shrub in my hands , stepped on the rake. Betcha can't guess what happened?
Amazing how fast that rake handle can accelrate to your chin !


6 YEARS AGO ! Told my daughter (now 14) that I would buy her a new Viper if she got a full ride scholarship for college. (She was 8 when I told her) The little brat has a 98 average. Been in the top 3/450 for last few years. Ain't looking good for me! Well, maybe, considering the tuition costs...

The other day I got home and wanted to check if the Caprice's tranny lines had jumped out of the clip on the oil pan again. I didn't jack it the car, I tried to slide under just behind the pass. side front tire. Right by that red hot cat. I was doing ok them I bumped my forehead on the hot cat and as reaction pulled my head backwards slamming the asphalt. Ouch

Taking out my transmission, I needed to turn the crank a little to get to my other 2 converter bolts on the flexplate. I was getting discouraged at how hard it was to dodge the fan blades while I was turning the breaker bar on the crank bolt. So I figured it would be a little easier to just 'bump' the starter like the book said to get the crank to turn a little.

Book was right, it worked like a charm. Just be sure you remove your breaker bar from your crank bolt first, or you'll find yourself in the flex-fan aisle of Auto-Zone the same day.
