A place to submit your "Today, I f*cked up..." (TIFU) stories.
I tried to refuse a invitation to a movie party, because, introvert and all that. I wanted to do it politely, so I began with, 'I'm sorry, I totally could, but...' and then I couldn't think of anything to say, and I ended up saying 'I totally could, but I just don't want to.'
I threw in an apologetic smile before I realised what I just said.
In one hand I held some potato chips and in the other, a stapler (don't ask) and then, I absentmindedly bit down on the stapler, hard. I was holding it in a stupid way so that my fingers were in the middle of it, and so I stapled my finger and dropped the chips AND the stapler (because I was so shocked by the pain) which thus landed on my foot.
I told my 4 year old cousin that hurting people makes you smarter. I thought he would think I was joking, but then I realized he never knew the right and wrong things. Two days later, his parents and brother were sent to the hospital. I turned my cousin into a psychopath.
Today I fucked up, I call my mom mama, it was very usual for me to call her that. But on his particular day, I was at school, they were handing out the test paper results. I looked at it and asked. "Mama, isn't this supposed to be correct?" She looked at me with a puzzled face, it took me a good 6 seconds to notice what I have just done. Everyone at class started chuckling and some even did facepalms. I told myself, "Fuck this", then my teacher didn't acknowledge the fact that I called her mama. I fucked up real good...
It was advisory at school which is at the end of the day. Was talking quietly to my friend. The teacher noticed and moved me right in front of his desk. Under my breath, I said, "You're like the angle and the devil." He heard me. I got in trouble which resulted in 2 U's in my advisory report card. That day I fu**ed up badly.
During a bonfire party we went on a trail though a forest where we used tiki torches for light
All was ok until my tiki torch caught on fire. The forest didn't catch fire and Everyone was fine but it took 5 minuets to put out the tiki torch since there wasn't any water with us and the tiki torch was completely ruined.
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.
