I just “replied to all” on an email to my entire firm. The content was harmless (thank God), but I do feel dumb. First time for me. What a way to start the week. Anyone else have a brain-absent story to share?

What you had to say:

I asked a patient of mine a few weeks ago when she was due...soon? she had the baby already- I'm a dumbass :) good thing she was in good spirits about it and took it lightly

About 6 months ago i got an e-mail from my boss saying he couldn't remember the name of a guy who worked at the client organization. He also wanted the guy's contact info. I replied to my boss and used the autofill on Outlook to get the guy's e-mail which i pasted into the message. I forgot to erase him from the CC: line, so he also received the message meant for my boss. My boss was not amused really. No ... not really.

When you are trying to speak Dutch, pretty much every day is an occasion for something stupid to come out of your mouth.

Though I'm sure I've got plenty of my own, one of my all-time favorites involves a co-worker.

We both started at the same time and had been there just a few months when he was trying to track down a software CD he had given to someone he knew. That someone had apparently given it to someone who my co-worker did not know. My co-worker, angry that the CD he needed was floating around called the person he did not know and wrangled with him for like five minutes demanding that he personally find the CD and bring it back to him (I overheard all of this since we sat right next to each other).

Turns out that if my co-worker had looked up who that second person was before calling him he would have known that he was a partner in the firm. Classic.

Back when I was working at the animal hospital, I went to refill the sterile water and gauze container for surgery. We always filled it using an IV bag and a line, so I put the line in the container and started the flow. I got distracted by something else for a minute (actually, I totally forgot about it) and when I came back there was a giant puddle of water on the treatment room floor. People were just standing around kind of perplexed as to who let it overflow. Of course when everyone saw my reaction, they realized that I was the idiot that left the line running. I was pregnant at the time, so everyone blamed it on my forgetful "pregnant brain."

The other night I was trying to scan my ID card to get into the gym. Each time I scanned the card, I got an error message. After about a half-dozen failed attempts, I turned to the guy behind the counter and gave him what I can only imagine was a look of total annoyance, as if to say, "I can believe your stupid scanner doesn't work." He just smiled, shook his head, and directed my attention to the Denver Public Library card in my hand. I felt like such a dumbass.

Type something and click Post. It's that easy.
