I remember doing stupid things like that when I was a kid.
One time I went to the firestation (down the street) to rat out my mom for not carrying me into the house when we came from from the grocery store. She carried the groceries in first which pissed me off because it was snowing.
What a freaking brat. My poor mom thought someone had abducted me.

Haha, typical women! j/k of course.

I bet the grandma had to feel pretty bad when her bad cooking made the news.

Grandma should give that little punk McDonald's gift certificates for his birthday/Christmas until the day she dies.

It seems a little more good natured today at least. Unless I just haven't checked the threads with the heated flame wars yet.

articles need to be longer than the time it takes a 56K modem to download them

Betcha granny ends up packed in kitty litter.
2002-10-01 08:44:08 PM  
about the closest to this I ever got as a kid was flushing my peas down the toilet and claiming they'd made me sick.

I really should have just called the cops.

The officer pleaded with the boy to give grandmother's plum dumplings (Zwetschkenknoedel) another chance.

Ewwwww, I thought that sort of think only happened in the Nashville area. Ick.

(FOr the record my corporate overlords have moved me from Sunny Hollywood Fl, to Nashville Tn.)

Glad to see you could put that in the right thread this time. ;)

--bored out of his mind tonight.

Yep I am 100% idiot tonight due to the Flu, and little farked up on cold medicine.

2002-10-01 08:55:31 PM  
i have the flu as well..more like the viscious cold that makes you want to cut your head off... maybe I got it from you 9-1-1

I should have called 911 on my Mom's cooking a couple times. I love her dearly, but she can't boil water without burning it.

Then there was the time that my 1 year old son was playing with the phone and accidently dialed 911. We didn't realize it until the police showed up . . .

Femme_fatale : That about describes this friggin bug. but with a low grade fever periodic enough for me to understand hot flashes.

(At least I got the winter bug out of the way for the season. )

P.S. Do you have any "Coma Dose" available?
2002-10-01 09:09:13 PM  
Thats about what I am just getting over. Stuffy nose, sore throat, lungs that bubble when you breath... fun stuff.
2002-10-01 09:10:46 PM  
i accidentally dialed 911 one morning.

i woke up with a hangover needed to know what time it was but couldnt find a clock. i also couldnt remember what the phone number for the local time/date/weather thing was so i just started pressing random numbers. when one rang i got excited...until the chick asked me if i had an emergency.

"Yes! im still drunk and i think im late for work!"

Wydok took me a good minute that you were kidding... was thinking... "what an idiot" maybe he has really hard water...

but then... it hit me... hey, it's late (9:00 pm) :(
haven't slept for 2 days...

HAHA, give them another chance, please!

My dear old Gran used to make a lovely soup out of everything in the fridge that was on the verge of turning bad. I'd just brace myself before takin' a swallow, never thought of turning her in.

I dated a guy for four years whose mother's cooking was so horrendous that to this day I believe we only stayed together as long as we did because I cooked better then she did.

I got a good 9-1-1 story! A long time ago when I first started working my Help Desk job at a local company, I learned the rules of using the PBX. Any outside line had to be dialed with a 9, then the rest of the number. Well, being the farktart that I am...I dialed 9, then 1, and then I realized my mistake. I quickly hung up the phone and dialed my number again...another "1" followed by the rest of the number. I quickly was connected to the police station and they answered, realizing what I had done I hung up (not smart) and dialed the number I wanted. About 1 minute into my conversation I hear an awful banging at the door and I realized my worst nightmare. Two police officers at my door refusing to leave until I let them search the house for someone who might have dialed the number. I explained my story and it resulted in quite a hilarious blotter incident in the local newspaper the following week. Needless to say, I didn't live that one down for a while.

I guess I should say that the previous story happened at home, not at work. Much funnier since we don't have a PBX at home!
