It is easy to get into everyday routines, when everything runs so smoothly that your brain is quite happy to cruise along on autopilot. However there are occasions when this blissful absent- mindedness can suddenly disappear with a rude awakening.
Go ahead, share your embarrassing story of your brainfart and let's all have a good laugh!
I was driving a rental car and noticed the gas was low. I was at a stop light so I rolled down the window and stuck my head out to see if I could see the gas tank on the drivers side. While I was looking, I felt a raindrop land on my head. Without thinking, I reached down and hit the button to roll up the window. Suddenly I panicked as my head was getting slowly smashed by the rising window and I had no idea what was happening. I panicked and escaped and slowly figured out what I had just done.
I looked up to see a very confused girl stopped in the car next to me was looking at me. She had no context for why I had stuck my head out of the car and, for some reason, decided to smash it with the power window.
Went downstairs, got in the car got half way to work, realised i'd forgotten my lunch, turned round and went home. got home to find no lunch. So i made some and set back off to work. Got half way and realised I don't work Sundays.
My car needed a small repair, so I had taken it into the garage and left it there.
As I was continued walking to work, I remembered that I hadn't stopped for gas on the way, so I walked into the gas station and up to the pump before I realized that I didn't have my car with me. At least I remembered before I tried pumping the gas!
Just a couple of weeks since i’ve moved out from my parents place, was celebrating my independence at work, got drunk and instead of going to my new home, went straight to my parents place on autopilot letting them see me drunk for the first time trying to open their door with my new key... Dad was laughing his brains out asking me if i’m sure i’m ready to live alone
I was having sex with my girlfriend at the time. I was obscenely tired and a mate of mine was going through a bad time. I was just thinking about him rather than what I was doing, ended up pathetically whimpering his name in a sympathetic way.
How many times have you put on your glasses to look for your glasses?
I called my teacher "mommy" in front of the class. I was in high school, and the teacher was... An old man. I don't know which of us was the most surprised.
One day, I sprayed air freshener instead of deodorant on my armpits. Spoiler : IT BURNS LIKE HELL.
I had a glass of water in my right hand, and my phone in my left. I walked into my bedroom and tossed my phone on to my bed. Except I didn't, I threw the glass of water instead. I was very very tired. Unfortunately my lack of sleep then became the reason I couldn't go to bed.
I just sort of stood there and gawped at my own stupidity.
