HarveyBoulevard Posted May 16, 2019 Share Posted May 16, 2019 So, as the title suggests, what is the dumbest/silliest thing your child has done? What is the dumbest/silliest thing you have ever done? Weave a tale for us. Put us in the room as your child covers themselves in maple syrup then flour...let us feel your pain as your kid etches their initials in your car's paint... My 5 year old girl loves my stories of me eating dog food, eating a slug, almost getting hit in the head with a beer bottle, etc. I have some I can share when she gets a bit older but I digress... When I was about 17, I was a senior in high school. I had a car, I had a job, I thought I was hot shit. One day on the way home school, a couple guys in a van pulled up to me in a parking lot. They said they had been installing some serious high end stereos at a few customer's homes but when they were done, they had some extra top shelf speakers that were 'overstocked' on their truck. They pulled out some literature on the speakers and told me how much they retailed for, etc. They gave me a great story and asked if I would be interested. I said I only had a couple hundred bucks on me and they suggested they follow me to the bank and I could withdraw the rest from the ATM. I was a naive moron and let one of them ride in my car to the bank while the other guy drove the van. I pulled out some cash and we did the deed. I proudly went home to show my dad what a great deal I had gotten on some super high end speakers and...that didn't go well Dad was nice but drove the point home. I actually remember this event as a pivotal point in my youth that changed my outlook and direction in life. That lesson have saved me more times than I can count and I have yet to purchase that oceanfront property in Arizona or the London Bridge... I have lots more but I get tired of typing quickly.
