    Dumbest thing your spouse/significant other/girl or boyfriend ever did.

    Mine wanted to grab my nose for fun while I was driving, while she was attempting this her hand came up to obstruct my vision for a second, at the time I was turning on a curve and almost hit the side barrier :brickwall:.

    I had a girlfriend in college grab and yank the steering wheel as a joke. She didn't realize how a car's steering tightens up at high speed.

    We didn't spin, but it did send the car into a terrifying fishtail for a couple of seconds.

    At the moment, she used the last of the TP this morning. She is also the one who changed the roll last, and I guess didn't see that it was the last one...... and here I sit.



    Now, my EX spouse... With all the epic stupidity I was subjected to over the several years, there is really too much to list. But one of the last ways she almost killed me was when we were in the car, she was driving, doing 40 in a 30, decided she wanted a cigarette, and found she couldn't light it with the windows down. Rather than push the buttons to roll the windows up, she took both her hands off the wheel and put her head down, taking her eyes off the road. At that same time, a pickup rolled through a stop sign and pulled out right in front of us. I reached over from the passenger seat and steered around the truck, and luckily there was no oncoming traffic. By the time she got her eyes back on the road, it was all over, and she didn't even know what happened.

    God help the poor SOB she ends up with. :rofl:

    My wife has foibles, has irritated me in the past, but nothing ever dumb has been accomplished by her.

    She says some funny stuff from time to time, but I can't recall it right now.

    I'm fortunate enough to have a wife that hasn't done anything stupid enough to kill us.

    For the last 12 years, she's been leaving powdered coffee creamer on the kitchen counters. We have large dogs that can easily reach the counters and they think vanilla coffee creamer is delicious.

    I'm not exaggerating when I say that a week hasn't gone by when the dogs haven't gotten at least one container. They've even gotten two containers in one day.

    I've given up complaining about it. I don't use it and the dogs don't get sick from it, so she isn't hurting anyone but herself.

    You'd just think that someone that scored in the 98th percentile in her SAT could simply put the coffee creamer back in the cupboard.

    Yes, I consider myself blessed that is the stupidest thing she does.

    Mine got pissed at me one time at a bar and got in the car and left me there. That was a very long time ago and our last real fight (we've had maybe three in 15 years). I consider myself pretty lucky.

    My Lab used to counter surf. My wife was always crabbing at me "why don't you train that dog not to do that?"

    My response?
    "heck, if I can't train you to not leave stuff on the counters, how far do you think I'm going to get with the dog?"

    No really "dumb" things to report. At least nothing life threatening.

    However,

    She did once try to dial the TV remote to order pizza. And she once lost her keys for two months. Found them in the freezer, coincidentally, I had just listened to George Carlins bit about losing your keys in the freezer.

    Whenever she can't find anything now, the first question asked: Did ya look in the freezer?:supergrin:

    last week mine was having a blonde moment (even though she's a natural redhead) so she asks "is the stove on?" (it's electric) as she puts her fingertip on the element. yes it was on, as she very quickly and painfully discovered.

    she also knows that anytime i have to wear a tie or even a collared dress shirt it's going to be at least a 2 hour fight to get me into it because i hate things around my throat. awhile back she let her brain get away from her and thought it'd be sexy and fun to grab my throat during play time. that didn't get quite the reaction she was hoping for.

    according to her mom while she was in college she went after a spider with a a hammer, unfortunately the spider was scurrying across the glass topped dining room table.

    she's usually a pretty sharp little firecracker, but when she goes ditzy she goes big.
