Trapped on the escalator for hours? I can't believe that. I mean, you'd have to be a vegetable ... right?

Of all of them, that escalator one makes my BS radar go off. You'd have to be seriously mentally disabled.

By hours, they probably just meant minutes while they waited for the crowd of people to start moving off of it.... My mother totally thinks Spac was from star wars though!

Oh the joys of Intellectually Bankrupt people. Mind you, we've all done something similar in our time; Pushed a door that clearly says pull, poured water into a kettle and wondered why it hasn't boiled after a few minutes, spending hours turning a place over looking for a pair of glasses that are perched on our head...

OK, maybe these things are not quite in the same league...

We should make a thread about stupid stuff we've done. For me:

Put on a pot of coffee but forgot to put the coffee in there.

Took a shower and afterwards realized I didn't bring a towel in there.

Pulled a video card out of a test machine while the PC was still turned on.

Carried one of those ring-shaped Zalman coolers by the fins - and regretted it.

Wore sunglasses at night.

Used the loo and realized there's no toilet paper near.

Turned on the window A/C when I had the room heat turned on.

Plugged a USB thumb drive into one PC and tried to access it on another.

Thought Arsenal had a chance at a trophy in recent years.

As a kid, I thought dipping saltine crackers in my hot chocolate was a great idea.

Not remembering someone's name after meeting them more than a handful of times.
