It is nice sometimes to talk about other junk rather than the pain and suffering we go through.  For this thread, all complaining is forbidden :)
 
I am going to ask a question like " have you ever...........( use your imagination and fill in the blank )?  The first person to respond gets to ask the next ......."have you ever........" question.
 
For example: Have you ever "lost" your car in a mall or other large parking place?  Responder....."yes, thank goodness I found it because I was about to call the police to report it stolen"  This responder asks the next question......have you ever....
 
Feel free to respond more than once.   The more we get the funnier this can be.
 
First question:  Have you ever laughed so hard the beverage you were drinking came out your nose?

Yes. I was drinking pop!!! That burns!!! LOL!! One of my brothers was playing with my neice. What he didn't know was that she had just finished a bottle. She was about 6 months old and he was holding her in the air while he was laying on the couch. And he brought her down to tickle her neck and as he lifted her back up she puked. It was all over his face and just barely missed his mouth. But the part that got me was the look on his face!!! I will never forget the way he looked and he wouldn't open his mouth to ask for help cuz he didn't want anything to get into his mouth.

I know it's gross and all but the face is what made me laugh.

oh yes I have......right after a night of being out too late, had one too many,  and got up with much resistance - got dressed, and off to work, to find out that I was the only dummy there.........should have figured it out long before I arrived this fine Saturday morning, due to the lack of other vehicles on the road...

 

Have you ever searched all over the house for  your keys, only to find out that they have been in your hand all along?

Have you ever..(I'm almost afriad and embarrased to type this!)..went to the gas station to get gas. Swoop into that open pump, find your ATM card, open the gas door (after accidently opening the trunk first), pay for the gas, pump the gas, only to get back in the car and find out you haven't turned the car off?!? It had been running the entire time! LOL! How scary is that!

I didn't have time to choose from the vast assortment of personal embarassing anecdotes, but here's something y'all might enjy!

 

16 Things it took me over 50+ years to learn

Dave Barry, Nationally Syndicated Columnist

 

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative the same night.

 

2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

 

3. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

 

4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

 

5. You should not confuse your career with your life.

 

6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. (This one is very important.)

 

7. Never lick a steak knife.

 

8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.

 

9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

 

10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

 

11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.

 

12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

 

13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.)

 

14. Your friends love you anyway.

 

15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

 

16. Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes; and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

Hahaha!  Not my keys.  I am so careful with those.  I have only locked my keys in the car twice.......of course it was just recently.  I am definitely having cognitive problems!! 
 
Have you ever searched and searched for your keys, glasses, phone......only to find you had them all along?  (keys in your pocket, glasses on your head, phone in your hand)

Grandpa and the IRS Audit... 

The  IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS  office.
 
The  IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.
 
The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an  extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying  that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable.'
 
I'm  a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a  demonstration?'
 
The  auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.'

Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.'
 
The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'
 
Grandpa  removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops.

Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.'
 
Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.

Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.
 
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Gr andpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.
 
'Want to go double or n othing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.
 
Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty m uch urinates all over the auditor's desk. The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.
 
But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.

'Are you okay?' the auditor asks.
 
'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!'
 
 
I may have posted this already, but what the heck! If I can't remember to take my key out of the front door, then I can be forgiven for repeating myself repeating myself.

Have you ever got stuck in the backseat of a car & had to be pulled out feet first by the cab driver???

Fortunately the cab driver is a good friend & we were both laughing like mad. The passing pedestrians thought we were crazy though. turn

Popsie,
Can't say that I have ever gotten stuck in the seat and had to have help getting out of it.
Have you ever gone to the store to buy something and after you went up to the register and had the clerk ring up your sale find out that you didn't have the money to pay for it? Happened to me a few times, felt like a real idjut (idiot)!
