Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Typically my inspiration for posting is based on the idiocy or humor that I find in others. But yesterday, I inspired myself.

While shopping at World Market, I wandered around somewhat aimlessly adding things to my basket - sea salt, new rug for the front entry, chocolate, candles, etc. And on a whim I shuffled over to the Halloween area in the hopes of finding some inspiration for a costume. Nothing earth shattering there, but I did find a cute little pair of devil horns. I figured worst case scenario, I wear jeans, a black t-shirt and devil horns. Perfect.

So, I get to the register and the woman checking me out feels it necessary to discuss every item I am purchasing with me (no, this isn't the idiocy yet). As I am focusing on my wallet she says, "Aw ... and you didn't forget your pooch. How Cute."

Awkward silence ensues.

And then, the "aha!" moment.

I was wondering why the devil horns had a chin strap, but I figured with a bobby-pin or two I could make them work.

Um yeah, the chip strap is for my dog's chin. These horns are for the dogs.

So, everyone makes mistakes. And I ain't afraid to admit it.

On that note, a couple little mistakes that the fine folks of Bluffton have let slip out of late ...

Town Meeting, September 17. There must have been something in the water that day.

The disgusting gentleman who sat behind me for 90 minutes burped out loud for 89 minutes. The icing on the cake was that with every belch he would blow a breeze my way. Lovely.

Almost as disturbing, but so much funnier because well, I didn't have to smell it ...

The woman sitting a few rows in front of us must have felt a rumble in the tumble because she abruptly jumped from her seat and sped to the door. All the while passing gas loudly. I am ashamed to say that I laughed and laughed and laughed at that one. I don't know who should be more embarrassed, me or her? Ok ... me.

Since no one has shit their pants in front of me this month, I guess I will leave it at that.
