Cowart's Common Room
Daft Things.

Go on then what daft things have you done.Very Happy

For example how many of us when we were younger and poor sewed up ladders in our tights . . . and how many of us sewed them up whilst we were wearing them . . .and how many of us sewed our tights to our legs . . . hands up . . .

Many times I have come into the house on a bright day with my sunglasses on and then put the light on because it was too dark to see. Embarassed

So what daft things have you done.

Twiglet's Avatar My sister ironed a school blouse front whilst she was wearing it and skimmed the iron across her tum!
I carried some hanging baskets balanced over half a bucket of water in the boot of my car. Yes you guessed. Bucket tipped over going round a bend and contents soaked into boot carpet ( PS - never told other hubby so hope he doesn't read this!!!)

Westerwitch's Avatar I ironed something on the floor and burned the carpet.

Fennie's Avatar I thought the best way to whiten my teeth might be to clean my teeth with bleach. It didn't work very well and tasted foul. I also tried sticking a crown back with araldite. That didn't work either. But some of my ideas do work, in fact most do.

Resewnsally's Avatar I've not enough time in the day to list all the daft things I do! Embarassed Putting washing up liquid in the dishwasher and flooding the kitchen with bubbles, Embarassed putting dirty dishes in the fridge, Embarassed Putting little ones nappy on back to front, Embarassed trying to open a milk bottle with a tin opener, Embarassed spraying on ralgex/deep heat spray instead of deodorant, (that one hurt!) picking up baking trays without an oven glove, (all the time) You get the picture... I won't embarrass myself anymore! Laughing

Jaynebeth's Avatar I used to put clear nail varnish on 10 denier tight ladders - while wearing the tights - and later found them stuck to my legs!

Withy Brook's Avatar I used to do that Jaynebeth.
We spent a terrible lot of time searching for the tin of cigarettes (some 55 to 60 years ago) only to find that I had put it in the fridge. Of course many more such-like things in the years since.

Salle de Bain's Avatar Hairspray under the arm-pits in the days when everything was in aerosols.

Sticking a temporary dental bridge back in with Germolene.

My mother whilst using a temporary BBQ on Wembury beach, complained that the smoke was blowing in her eyes, so she got up, grabbed the oven gloves and turned said BBQ.

I on the other hand, got in the car in Cornwall to drive to Dorset ( a route I know very well), and ended up in Bristol as I forgot to get off of the motorway about 100 miles back...runs in the family I'm afraid.

Dancing Dog's Avatar At supper one night when the stepdaughters were very young, I reached over a candle and the fuzz on the underside of the arm of my sweater went up in flames. Hysterically funny after I'd been put out.

Dancing Dog's Avatar When we were first married we lived in a rented apartment. There was a dishwasher that I refused to use for various reasons. On Christmas day we had my husbands family over and my husband insisted we use the dishwasher. The following May we were moving to our house and I thought I'd run the dishwasher so it would be clean for the next tenants, only to discover all my best dishes still in there, covered in a layer of mold.

Camilla's Avatar Yep, I use to do the same as Jayne, painted on nail varnish with blobs hoping the ladders would not run anymore.

Silverhead's Avatar I got rid of the lumps in my white sauce by holding the sieve over the sink ----that's right I lost all the smooth sauce and was left with all the lumps. Rolling EyesRolling EyesRolling Eyes
