What is your biggest "brain fart" moment?

(It's easy to talk about embarrassing moments anonymously. )

My biggest brain fart was a few years ago. We were eating pizza bites, so there was a pan of them sitting on the stove. I had a plate of pizza bites and a glass of milk to go with them. I went to refill my glass, lost myself completely, and walked back to the table unsure of what I was even doing or why I left the table. I surveyed the kitchen, trying to jog my memory, but to no avail, and so decided to resume eating. I went to take a sip of milk, and lo and behold, there was a pizza bite floating in my glass of milk. Somehow, in my daze, I had confused refilling my glass with refilling my plate, walked to the stove, and plopped a pizza bite into my milk, without remembering anything! Upon discovering the pizza bite, I laughed like a loon, and my whole family stared at me like I was crazy. To this day, it's still my favorite story. What's your story?

If you offer me a cookie, I'm going to ask for a glass of milk. When you give me the milk, I'll probably spill it everywhere.

Oh, goodness. I have many.

My best one, though, was at school, me and my friends were walking to class, but we don't have the same first hour. So I was late to my first hour. We had a routine to meet up and walk to classes together, despite me not sharing a class with them. On a particularly brain-dead morning, I went to the wrong class EVERY SINGLE HOUR. That is my crowning achievement and I never lived it down.

Mine was when I was making some stuff for Sherlock Holmes Day. It was last year. I picked up a magnifying glass and went to clean it. When I was cleaning it, I thought why I am doing this? Then I went without wiping it, then water was all over. My mother slipped and shouted " What is going on!" She had shouted soo loudly that I woke as I was in a dream. Then I said to her, "You see, but you do not observe." She went away. I think that she must've got the 'brain fart'.

You can never change the past, but can learn from it.

Wot


Another one was when I was heading for the stairs at school and remember and asdfmovie where a guy says, "Hey Johnny, play that one about falling down the stairs!" And then I fell down the stairs. Oh wait, I look up and the girl I had a crush on is literally leaning on the wall, dying laughing, goddang it.

Well, this wasn't necessarily me, but...

Last Friday in math class, we were learning unit multipliers. This was basic stuff, the easy part of the lesson. So my teacher asks one of the guys, "if we want to change this from feet to inches, what do we multiply it by?" The guy says, "1/36." My teacher sort of blinks at him. Everyone is laughing, and one of the other guys says, "No, it's feet, not yards! 1/10!"

We're in Algebra 2. I didn't know that 12 inches in 1 foot was terribly advanced.

Now, that just hurts me, because I'm in Algebra 2 right now and I can grasp the concepts somewhat easily

Also, I caught a friend in band class skipping out because he hated it, only to be caught because of attendance lol

Yeah, it was not his finest moment.

I washed an apple, dried it with a paper towel, threw away the apple, and bit the paper towel

I've had moments like that. Once, I took the last handful of paper napkins out of the plastic thingy they come in, went to throw away the plastic thing, and threw our last napkins away. My family was mad. but luckily this was before lockdown, so someone could just go get more.

I just now realized Braingle subscriptions could be given as gifts. When Alien first said that someone gave her a subscription, my first thought was, "who hacked you??!!!" Pardon my brain fart

When I was very small, I was solving an online puzzle with one of the school computers. The kind where you drag the pieces around until they make a picture. But for one of the pieces, I pushed the mouse down to pick it up, and moved it, but couldn't remember how to let go of the piece. I just completely forgot about letting the mouse button come back up. I was going to ask the librarian to help me, but I still had my hand on the mouse, and was subconsciously trying not to let go of it for some reason. So finally, I realized I had to let go of the mouse to get the librarian, and I did, and found that I was no longer holding on to the puzzle piece.

This one happened earlier. I was making toast (in the oven, since I don't have a toaster). I put a couple pieces of bread on a pan, put the pan in the oven, and pushed the "Broil" button. About a minute later, the oven starts beeping. I look at the little screen and it says:

"PUSH ON"

Silly me had forgotten to push the start/on button. Now my oven thinks I'm an idiot.

Edited for grammar.

(Bump Post) I just thought of another one!

This one happened several years ago. I was putting away laundry when I found something that belonged to another family member (I forgot who and what). I was carrying it back to their room, when I said, out loud to myself (and within earshot of my mom), "This can just go back where it belongs." However, my brain wound up garbling those words together, so instead I said, "Jis can thush go back where it belongs."
