Done anything stupid lately?

We just got a new elliptical trainer, not even a week old yet. To make the electonics on it opperational you have to put 4 "D" batteries in it or you are supposed to call and order the adapter for it. Well we have lots of adapters around here, so I tried a few. Until I tried the last one, it made a funny sound and then I heard a POP! Great I thought I broke it and my hubby hasn't even used it yet. I'm going to be in huge trouble. So I call the co. and they are graciously send me the new control panel, but it won't be here for 2-3 weeks probably. They are only charging me for shipping, how incredibly nice of them! And they are shipping the appropriate adapter. I hope the elliptical will work properly when I get the new part hooked up. I just can't believe I did that and now I have to wait until the parts come in. It just makes me sick to my stomach. Can you beat that?

Well, when I was young (around 20 or 21) I bought a brand new car. A firey red Fiero. Remember those sporty cars. I washed it with one of those steely brillo pads. Does that count as stupid? LOL. Had a million scratches on my new car. Don't know what I was thinking?

Not sure if it beats it... I work in a cafe with two floors. Our cappuccino machine is practically at the bottom of the stairs. The water for the tea comes out at virtually 100 degrees C. I poured myself a cup of herbal tea and walked up the stairs. Got to the top and took a big mouthful of scalding hot... It was the space of about 3 seconds between the water coming out of the machine and entering my gaping mouth. I couldn't taste anything for weeks! And needless to say the tea ended up all over the floor... I'm sure I can come up with plenty of other stupid things... I do stupid things all the time.
