Any Duh! moments?

Anyone have any really embarrassing things you've done that you walked away from thinking you're the biggest freaking idiot?

  • I backed into a guy's trailor at the gas station last week. I was so embarrassed that I made my husband get out to talk to him.

    Now, I'm not stupid and I have common sense. I'm not completely unworldly, either. But, when I first started working at my parole officer job out of college, a few co workers were talking about their defendants. The one girl said, "I had to read him the riot act!" Asshole me, never hearing that before said, "where can I get a copy of that riot act? I have a few people that need a wake up call." They laughed and when they told me what it meant, I just about shit myself. I cried I laughed so hard. I felt like such a dipshit.

  • I hit a parked car the other day... in my brand freaking new car. I left a note, but luckily the guy said no damage! WHOO! My car now has a scratch.

    I have had away too many dumb moments that I care to admit. My husband tells me that since I'm on all day for work that when I get home I shut down (sometimes too much).

    @MiaMyPuggle‌ - the Riot Act is actually a real British law from the 18th century, I believe. People in groups could be arrested for assembling to incite a riot. That's where the phrase came from.

  • I have them all the time... Can't think of any in particular... although yesterday at work ( I work in a big hospital) I got all the way to my unit and realized I left my badge in my car. The walk is long. I had to go all the way back to the parking garage to my car. I felt stupid. Oh and another... I work in a birthing center so all of our units are locked and u scan ur badge to get it. Well there is a time clock next to the swiper thing to open the door and a few hrs into my shift i swiped the time clock instead of the swiper to open the door. So I punched myself out. If only I was able to go home at that time. ..

  • I've been having these types of moments lots lately. Our sleeping at night hasn't been the greatest so I have been blaming them on being overtired and having little mommy moments. The other day I took my 2 younger cousins (age 8 & 11) to the pool along with my LO, I went to ask my 11 year cousin to spray my back with sunscreen, as I handed her the bottle and turned around for her I said "take a picture of me". She stood there confused and I realized what I said and burst out laughing, quickly correcting myself. I've been saying weird things a lot lately but can't seem to remember any other examples at the moment!

  • So many, and the fact that I can't think of a recent one is just further evidence of my Duh moments, because they happen all the time. I had a funny one during my pregnancy though. I was about 11 weeks and hadn't told my coworkers yet. The door to our building has a code you punch in to unlock the back door. It had been the same simple, 4 digit code for months, and I unlock the back door at LEAST twice a day, often more. I came back from a home visit in the middle of the day and could not for the life of me remember the code. I stood at the door for about 5 minutes trying different codes, tried calling the office (no answer), and finally someone came and let me in. When I announced my pregnancy a few days later they all laughed and told me they had a feeling I was pregnant because of my forgetfulness, especially the door code.
