What is it?

I was talking with somebody the other day about something funny that happened to them and when I finally quit laughing, I started thinking about the funniest thing that has happened to me.

No I have to tell you my list is long, very long. Luckily I am a "laugh, and the world laughs with you kind of person", so I pretty much take it all in stride.

There were a few things that have happened that I didn't laugh about until later, but I like to find the humor in all things. So today, I want you to tell me the funniest thing that has happened to you. Like I said, I have more stories than you can possibly imagine so I will start off with a few of my own.

First there was the time when I worked at the bank, and my boss (male) had asked me to hand him someones loan application. I was pretty busy as you can imagine, so I didn't really look up at him, I just said here, and handed it to him behind my back. He just happen to be walking a little closer than I had expected him to be and when I flew my arm back I hit him right in the ________. I just couldn't bring myself to say it but you know where. He doubles over and when I finally stop apologizing for actually hitting him there, he can't stop smiling.

Once I worked at a grocery store. (I am a people person.) I had a little lady who came in pretty regularly to purchase her "cooking" wine. Gallon size! She did a lot of cooking! Once, a man who happened to be behind her in line, made a little comment about the size of the bottle. My regular, didn't like that comment at all. She began to shout that she used that for cooking and SHE DID NOT DRINK!!! How dare he say that to her? After a few minutes of that tirade she finally left. That poor fellow behind her really didn't mean anything, just having a little fun. People should really loosen up.

Last but certainly not least was when my car alarm went off in the Dollar General parking lot and I didn't know how to turn it off so I just drove home with my car alarm blaring away!! Embarrassing!!
I blamed that one on my kids most of the way home, then once the embarrassment was starting to wear off, we laughed all the way home!

Ohh, I thought of one more. When I was probably 18 or 19, my best friend and me and my sister went to this bar at the beach. It was loud and you really couldn't hear very well at all. Hence the funny story. So any way, we walk up to the bar to order a drink. We were not sure what they had so my sister makes me go first. She wanted to know what kind of wine they have so I ask. Well, again it's really loud so he says something and I couldn't understand him. So after he gets finished talking he asks what we are having? I look at everyone and they are all looking at me, waiting for an answer, so I say, I'll have regular. The bar tender looks at me and brings me red. Once he walks away my sister and friend couldn't hear what I said so as we sit at the table and I tell them the story, we laughed until we almost wet ourselves.

OK, your next!


  1. Ok, I was 16. That kinda speaks for itself! I was water skiing and my bathing suit top broke. I didn't KNOW it had broken because it was being held on by the wind that I was skiing into. That is until I dropped the rope and went into the water. My bathing suit top floated away and i was thrown a white tee shirt by the guys in the boat. Yep. A white, *wet tee shirt*. And it wasn't even a contest. :)
