How about standing at the door for doggie "walk time", & somehow clicking the leash onto the off-leash-trained Doberman INSTEAD of onto the "I'm gone like I've been shot out of a cannon" coonhound?

I can't even relate the heart-attack-waiting-to-happen 1/2-mile dash in hot weather to catch the beast that ensued. Although the Doberman loved every minute - lol!

The whole episode was one big Homer Simpson D'OH!!!!!

I had to do the same thing. Got tired of drinking water after the cat had his share. Of course the cat thought was real swell to be able to drink right by the bed.

When your guests are going home after serving them dinner, you are cleaning up and putting away and you come across the components tat you forgot to put in the dinner.

Yes, it's exactly like buying Christmas gifts too early in the year to be overly prepared, and then forgetting where I hid them on Christmas day and finding them the next week.

Putting a metal jug of orange juice into a fridge...wet hands...slippery jug. KASPLOOSH! I wore most of the juice. It was either laugh or cry time.
