So in my family, it is generally accepted that everyone has "idiot moments." Everyone. No exceptions. These are generally just instances where you should know better--and, indeed, do know better--but you derp a little and do the dumb thing anyway. Or you forget something incredibly obvious, or you can't find something that is literally right in front of you, or whatever. Since they're often rather humorous in hindsight, I figured we should have a thread for them. And as it happens, I just had a doozy of one. As many of you know, I'm in the process of cleaning my room. One of the things I've done is set up a place to hang things like hoodies and dresses that would otherwise take up too much space in my dresser. This works pretty well, but there are a few small issues: The hangy thing is relatively high up, and thus nigh-impossible to access without me standing on something, such as a stepladder or (more often) my chair. Some things fall off the hangers really, really easily. Of course, a hoodie decided to fall off of its hanger, so I rolled my eyes and got up on my chair to hang it back up. Now, the hangy thing is right by my desk, which is, of course, where my laptop lives. I had also been drinking a soda at the time, as I often do, and I had set it right next to my laptop. I should note that I've been using computers since I was a toddler, and this has never been an issue. That being said, I also haven't often stood up on my chair with A. a laptop and B. a mostly-full can of Monster on the desk right next to me. And when I shifted my leg slightly, I happened to knock the can right over--right onto my laptop. (We're taking it into the shop to make sure it's not broken--I turned it off immediately and my dad thinks it'll be fine, but it's best to be safe.) This isn't the first time I've damaged an electronic device out of sheer idiocy, either. When I was 17 or so, I left my DS charging on the floor--and, since I was playing Pokemon at the moment and had just set it down, I had left it open. Naturally, I ended up stepping on it and completely ruining the top screen. (The DS was replaced in short order, since I'm normally very good about keeping my electronics safe, but I still felt super dumb.) So does anyone else have any stories like this?
