OMG!! -- blonde moment alert....

  1. Ok, had one of those serious dumb moments today -- first a little background....

    ....changed all my bank accounts recently, & thought I changed my direct debit details as well, BUT received a letter from my health insurer yesterday letting me know my payment (from my old a/c) had bounced....

    ....SO I rang them to let them know my new details, & while I was on the phone to the call centre said "Oh, I'd better update my address details as well, my new address is....." THEN proceeded to read her the address on the top of the letter (which was in fact my new address!!)....

    ....WHAT IS WORSE, is when I realised what I had said (about the time she said to me "Yes, we already have that address") is I told her what I had just done....:imbar ......the call centre lady just cracked up!! I could hear her laughing (I was too) & trying desperately not to - & then she asked me if I was blonde, & I didn't even lie about that & tell her I wasn't!!!

    .....(this is after just doing the IQ test on the other thread which told my IQ was right up there.....just goes to show brains don't necessarily equate with common sense!!)

    So, come on guys, fess up....what blonde moments have you had recently??

    Going to class yesterday after break, I missed a step (just a little-itsy-bitsy 4 inch step). I proceeded to fall - landed hard on my right knee, and hit my head on a chair (that was firmly in place.) All while my class looked on. :imbar

    Fortunately not everyone was there to witness my moment of grace ... but I did look really funny hobbling home on my hurt knee.

    ...uhh, well...I was recently returning to NC from visiting my GF in DC...happy as a lark and just cruising down the highway bout an hour from home when all of a sudden I felt my car bobble...Hmm???....Gee, I haven't gotten any fuel today..looking down at the gage while my foot is planted in the floor shaking the car swiftly from side to side and looking at the speedo to see if I'm losing much speed...just passed an exit and knew the next one was about a mile away including two hills...finally died going up the first one...put my flashers on and went to the emergency lane.....kept creeping ...finally crested first hill at 15 mph....going down the downhill side , I reenergized the key and heard the fuel pump, pump up, restarted and went thru the gears quickly with foot firmly planted on floor again...got it back up to about 75mph by the next exit and ran the stop sign after looking both ways on my arrival to same and coasted into the fuel bay! A blonde moment indeed! I am blonde, it was a transient moment, so it was a tbm. Transient Blonde Moment.

    Mine is a blond/pregnant moment.... (pregnancy seems to induce forgetfullness)

    My mom, sister and I decided to take a walk one summer evening around our Fitness Trail ( it's a trail for walkers, joggers, bikers in my town that extends for a couple of miles) I was pregnant and wanted to keep myself in shape. I had just gotten off work, stopped by my mom's and told them I wanted to change clothes and to meet me at my house so we would ride over to the trail together. I came home, brushed my teeth, put my PJ's on and climbed into bed to watch a re-run of Law and Order. I heard.... honk honk honk... thought it was just the neighbors being noisy and loud. Then honk honk honk....... finally knock knock knock.... I answered the door to find my Mom and sis staring at me confused. I had forgotten I was going to go walking with them. (this happened within a 15 min time span)

    okay... not as funny as some but you had to be there in the moment.

    I was having trouble with my right ear itching all the time and sometimes it hurt too (actually had otitis media at one point) so I took to wearing my cell phone ear piece in my left ear...so it wouldn't make the right one itch/hurt. One day I was sitting in the living room reading a good book and my hubby yells from the kitchen, "Hey Hon? do you know where my ear piece is?" I told him no, but he could use mine to which he responded "Yeah, but what if you ear 'funk' gets in mine?" my brilliant reply to that was "Just don't put it in your right ear" uh, hello? what the H*LL does that have to do with anything - we both just cracked up histerically for about 5 mins. I felt SO STUPID!!

    My husband and I are both blond.

    By agreement we take turns being "the pretty one" and "the smart one". Mayhem ensues if we both happen to be "the pretty one" on any given day.

    Sadly...this is not a joke.

    hubs woke me up yesterday after about 3-4 hours of sleep to go over and sign the paperwork for the new used vehicle we just bought.
    Mom called just as we were going out the door. Wanted to know if I'd be off that day, I said no, I was working 3, off the 4th. Oh well, she just wanted me to "help her" learn to use her new speakerphone. I told her how; she tried it, and eventually hit the right buttons, giggling like a schoolgirl the entire time. (She's 85.)

    But it wasn't until an hour later, in the middle of signing the loan papers, that I realized that at one point in the conversation, she actually said to me, "OK, now I'll try it but if it doesn't work and I accidentally hang up on you, I'll call you back in four days."

    The salesmen thought they had a real lunatic on their hands when i realized what she said and started laughing so hard I was too choked to speak.

    --they accepted the fact that I was tired but they all stayed about 10 feet away from me after that....

    :chuckle ( ya think it's genetic???)

    So, I get up on Thursday morning and hear something banging against the door in my sons room. I go to the door and let my cat, who had been trapped in there, out only to realize that my son is not in his bed. It is too early for him to be up so of course I start to think that someone came in the house and took him or that he ran away. I go all over the entire house looking for him and he is nowhere to be found. By now I am in a full fledged panic and ready to call the police and to get my husband up. I decided to check his room again to see if anything is missing. I go back into his room and look around his room, and I see that his book bag is missing, so now I am convinced that he has runaway (and I don't know why ). All at once I realize
    HE SPENT THE NIGHT AT HIS FATHERS, JUST LIKE HE HAS DONE EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT FOR THE LAST 2 YEARS.

    I was so glad that I never actually dialed the police.

    Now this happened in the morning before anybody else was up, so nobody else knew about it and nobody had to know. But I felt the need to open up my big mouth and tell everyone. Now which is the bigger blonde moment?:imbar
