Well, lately I've done a couple of stupid stuff things. I know, it's hard to believe. But these stupid things weren't all my fault. No, blame can be shared.
For example there was the incident of the attacking mailbox. You may want to watch out because you probably have one where you live. Mine looked like this...
And my car mirror will never be the same. It needs to be fixed...someday...sometime...when I get around to it...soon.

Then there is the case of the attacking parking lot ice.
You remember, the Walmart parking lot incident which resulted in a very flat tire, time lost waiting for roadside service and a $458 repair bill.
This week's stupid stuff involved a double oven in my kitchen with a mind of its own. It somehow turned on the bottom oven at 400 degrees instead of the top oven where potatoes were waiting to be baked. This would have been fine except the bottom oven was filled with boxes of crackers and cereal and a plastic container of nuts. I had been to a wholesale club this week. There was also a plastic case containing my brand new electric knife.

Notice my use of the word "was". After much smoke, melting of plastic and one burning box, my bottom oven is now free and clear of all items that had no business being there in the first place. I have no pictures to share of the smoke, burning box or melted plastic. I was kind of busy...
|Here's The Burned Box|
It was really a minor incident...no firemen were required...windows and doors were thrown open, melted plastic was scraped off the oven, everything from the oven was trashed and clean up took a mere 30 minutes.
Stupid stuff should be avoided at all costs.
No good can come from it.
All you get is a bunch of wasted time and a huge serving of humble pie.
