How stupid are you?

I cleaned my camera sensor thinking it had dust spots on it...only to find the spots are on my PC's TFT monitor. DOH!!!

I have also been known to tip water down the sink after unblocking a u-bend....before replacing the u-bend that is....

Oops! I have to admit I've done that. Took the trap off, reached up and emptied it into the sink....aarrghhhh!

Don't worry - I had a panic attack when I was viewing some pics taken with my DSLR on the monitor. Fortunately I realised it was spots on the monitor before taking a brillo pad to the sensor!

Anyone seen that programme "The World of Stupid"? It's on one of the satellite/freeview channels; can't remember which.

So you just took the brillo pad to the monitor instead! Nice one!

When I was working in the warehouse part of my job was to drive 'cherry-picker' trucks to pick stock from thirty foot high racks... the problem was I'm terrified of heights, so I would try really hard to put that out of my mind... it worked - one day I tossed a cigarette out of the cab and opened the safety gate to step it out, forgetting I was twenty-odd feet up... fortunately we were scruffy buggers in the warehouse and left piles of waste paper in loose bins... the worst I got was some brusies and nasty paper cuts.

I did an oil change on my car once and forgot to put the sump bolt back in before adding the new oil .....felt pretty stupid I must admit!!

I spent 2 days changing a clutch on an old vauxhall. When I put it all back together I thought great, it really works. Then found the only way to get reverse was to turn off the engine, I'd put the clutch plate in back to front.

How long!?!? Did you do it with your eyes shut and one hand behind your back?

An old Victor, necessitated taking out the engine and putting it back. Suspect you are too young to remember the Vauxhall transverse engine. Pig of of a machine.
