You look all over for your glasses that you took off a few times during the day, and spend the better part of the day searching for them--even fishing in the trash you took to the dumpster, and when you are getting undressed for bed, you find that they are in your shirt pocket.

When you wipe your glasses clean and break them in the middle and realize getting a new pair still is within the monthly budget frame.

When you get the idea to invent a glass holder station you can go to when you can't find your glasses and press a button on that station releasing a beeping sound on all your reading glasses in the house.

And you argue with the receptionist WITH APPOINTMENT CARD IN HAND that SHE is wrong and you look at the date again...and YOU are wrong.

Here is a funny duhh moment...

We were in line a Mcds and it my turn to order...I go to ask my little girl what she wanted (I think she was only 4 at the time). I'm like in a rush trying to order and I say, "do you want chicken or nuggets??" and she just sat there and so I'm like hurry up, "DO YOU WANT CHICKEN OR NUGGETS??" My son is in the front seat cracking up...he said, MOM, did you hear what you just asked her...does she want CHICKEN or NUGGETS?? It's the same thing....LOL...DUHHHH!!!!!

If your rent check was bigger than the car payment, I'll bet he cashed it faster than a jackrabbit on a date.

LOL

While getting ready to go into a courtroom, we were all told to turn off our phones. So I went into my purse and turned (what I thought was) OFF on the phone. We were all warned SEVERAL times with threats of contempt of court and scary stuff like that.

Then while in the courtroom, I heard that familiar ring go off in my purse. My purse, which was sitting at my feet was there, and I SLAMMED my foot on the purse as hard as I could, and it stopped ringing before the judge noticed.

After I got out, I opened my purse and looked at the phone and it was OFF and some of the contents of my purse were ruined because I slammed on that purse hard. The guy sitting next to me was out in the hall too and he was sweating bullets saying, MAN, I can't believe I forgot to shut off my phone!

When I was young, my friend and I were riding her ponies and we didn't know where to ride so we went down to this big field and rode there for a little and next to it was a cemetery, not a very big one, with one road through it. No one lived on site, and no one was there, so we decided to ride through the cemetery. We rode once around just down the road slowly, checking everything out, and then the second time decided to look closer at the graves. There was one that was a double headstone, long and low and it looked like fence, to jump. So we jumped it. We weren't even thinking of them as graves at this point. Just nice smooth ground to ride on, with fences to jump.

Well, there were people who lived across the street and they had called the police the minute we turned into the cemetery. I guess people who live across from a cemetery and a large field have nothing better to do than to watch people riding horses. Well, the police came and saw us in the cemetery, we were gonna jump that one tombstone again and try for a few more and make a course out of it. We saw them coming and we ran the horses into the field. We were chased by one squad car with sirens and lights across the field while another doubled around to the road to cut us off.

They put a notice in the paper, with our names. We got a warning, we were pretty young kids. But it was really dumb looking back... My friend and I back then figured that if we were dead and had graves we would want people to jump horses over them, it would be better than just laying there doing nothing watching people putting flowers.

I had jury duty last summer and they would not allow purses in the court room, and cell phones were locked up with the purses, they only came out when we were in our little room lol.. it was sooo hard not getting on fb we could not watch the news listen to the news nothing. Maybe it was because the case was still in the papers ,tv... I was never soooo glad to be home on resume my normal routine!

I did that with my diamond wedding rings, I took them off to mix up my meatlaof. Cleaned up the mess, missed my rings and could not find them.. Looked in the garbage disposer, every nook and cranny and in the dumpster, man I was loosing it ! In the last bag I dug threw like a rat in the corner swimming in yuck and coffee grounds was my diamond solitare. From then on I leave it on lol..

We had to go through a machine like at airports where a guy views everything inside xray style(GOOD LUCK TO THE GUY ON THAT ONE). Briefcases and purses go through that. I can't remember for certain if I had to take my shoes off too or not. I think I didn't. I had my purse crammed like usual. So they let us keep our purses because they didn't see anything bad in there.

HEY, I should have brought my peyote beadwork for wait time. I'm kind of a social being, so instead of making wait time valuable time, I was yacking the whole time (about things not related). I ended up as an alternate in the jury. I had to sit through things, but I was only there in case a jury member got sick.

This was good because after the trial, I got to go home...I'd only get called in if one of the members got ill, and no one did. So I had to watch the trial, but after that, I was home free.

They took my bead work due to it had a weapon! lol The needle was considered a a possible weapon. The lady that went threw before me got her little fold up sewing sissors taken away. At first they said they had no holding area and they threw stuff away, I was like oh no!! SO I asked if I clipped off the needle and threw it away could I take my beadwork with me??? I was able to do that. Im not sure about the sissors.

I was able to do that. Im not sure about the sissors.
Well, you could have done beadwork without a needle. It can be done. But oh man! I wonder if those big collapsible eye flex needles would have been okay. I mean they are not sharp at the end and it's like a tiny piece of wire.

Also, you could have pre-loaded a bias set up to weave. If you load up the beads, you don't need any needles. I would do that today if possible. Load up the beads and then just do the weaving while I'm waiting.

I'd have a set of hair ties done in no time! LOL

To anyone looking, they'd think we were more a lot more interested in our beadwork than the life of the person being judged. LOL

There is a lot of wait time. I never saw those people again...and we were just a bunch of people who didn't want to be there and wanted to get it over with...but beadwork would have made it much more tolerable!
