A place to submit your "Today, I f*cked up..." (TIFU) stories.
I was at a car boot today. For those of you outside of the UK, a carboot is where travelling salespeople sell their goods (new or used) with their car acting as somewhat of a base of operations. At the one I was at today, I made two big mistakes.
Mistake number one: I saw someone a copy of Ben 10 Season 1 on DVD for 50p. Since I was in the mood for more cartoon shows to keep me amused until the next episode of Rick And Morty, I went ahead and picked it up. It wasn't until I got home that I reallised I forgot to check the case, so instead of Ben 10 Season 1, the disc inside the box (which was clearly the box for Season 1) was instead Ben 10: Race Against Time (pretty terrible movie, BTW).
Second mistake: Some guy was selling brand-new unopened and sealed copies of SNK VS Capcom: SVC Chaos on the original Xbox for £5, which is cheaper than what you'd usually pay online for a used copy. Now I LOVE fighting games and since I figured I'd never get it any cheaper, I got a copy. However, I failed to take into account one thing: Backwards Compatibility. Basically, there are limits as to what original Xbox games can be played on Xbox 360. Why that is I will never know. So, I got home, put the disc into my Xbox 360 only to be greeted a screen saying the game I inserted is not amongst the compatible games.
Today, I f**ked up TWICE!!! I posted two posts as an anonymous user. One of them was about the anime quote from CollegeHumor and another was about the notifications and how difficult it is to differentiate each category from others.
I was on a very empty road. No cars for miles except for mine of course. Since there were no cars for miles I thought I could speed up the process of getting home. I pushed on the gas pedal and ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! Except thirty seconds later I saw I was going past 100 MPH(I ain't putting in kilometers for you foreigners, with the exception of Liberia and Burma/Myanmar) and I saw there was a car in front of me. I swerved onto the grass beside the road. Whilst the car in front of me didn't get any damages my car's tires popped. TIFU badly.
As my mum was getting out of the bath, I was going to get in. My mum's SUPER expensive book was on the bench where I was going to put my stuff, so I handed it to my mum. It slipped as I was passing it to her. It fell into the bath.
One day I was walking down an alley way,I saw someone beating up a guy who looked like my friend,I told him to fuck off and leave him alone,I looked at the guy in horror as it was my father,he said "bitch I'm beating up this guy leave me alone" then I punched my dad forgetting who he was,let's just say I was in hospital for 8 months
I don't know if this counts because it didn't happen to me, but I was at a store that serves free popcorn and coffee.
This kid gets his popcorn and is deciding what flavor of salt he wants. He eventually reaches over to what LOOKS like salt, but is actually sugar for the coffee.
I see him do this and I say, "Um... that's sugar,"
His face drains of color and his jaw dropped, looking as if he's seen a ghost. I was confused as to why he was reacting this way to a simple mistake.
He slowly turns, places the popcorn in a trash bin, and runs out of the store.
I want to be friends with this kid.
Was sitting in class and we had to go on this website the whole class was supposed to go on. We had to go on our specific page the teacher made for us. As I was looking for my name to click on to go on that page, I noticed a name on that page, and I thought it was spelled wrong. It read "Ashleigh", and I thought her name was spelled, "Ashley." It looked kinda weird and I tried pronouncing it out loud. I looked up, and heard a, "Yes?" It turned out, the girl sitting right in front of me WAS her, and she just heard me say her name, and was looking at me really weird.
