Beat My Blunder

A society for daily blunderers
  (+10, -2)(+10, -2)

  [vote for,

I would like to create a web site for people to compete to see who made the biggest screwup for that day.

It would be rated ala "Rate My Cat" and the like. A brief description and a source of validation is all the information one would need to enter. Like a photo or the link to a business or some sort of witness. Just in case you were a finalist and someone doubted your integrity. (Not a chance I say.)

Participants would submit their extraordinary blunder for that day and the mess up with the most votes wins.

Wins what you say??? Well the right to say I won on "Beat My Blunder". That and a bit of comfort knowing that someone else did a stupider far more ridiculous thing than you did that day.

One major caveat is that your blunder can not be intentional; it must be absolutely a genuine f**k up.

Like today when I went to my therapist for my scheduled visit. I wanted to complain about my increased disorientation and lethargy. Low and behold just to find out I was there a week early and I could of stayed in bed all day. (Or on the computer so it seems.)

Beat that you blundering fool!!!

       He's right you know.

       Help me out here you guys. I don't know what your talking about. I do know one thing however. If this is baked "royaly" then that makes this my second big blunder today. And since they're related...well...

       fmylife.com is fun like this. But, I like the competitive edge.+
daseva, Apr 15 2009

       I figured there must be a site out there like this. Thanks for letting me know about it.

       Blunde'r bust. (+)   

       No Quest this isn't necessarily funny (just ask me about yesterday). I'm not sure that most find their blunders or should I say bad days because of your own actions funny.   

       But I will agree that fmylife.com does make this baked except for the rating part. Which of coarse which is what separates this site from many other new idea sites. RIGHT? Plus I didn't know that site existed. Till now. So there. [sticks tongue out in childish defiance.]

       Mini-blunder alert: "Low and behold" - you mean "Lo and behold", I think.

       ... or in the case of a warning for aircraft flying over hostile territory "Low and be holed"

       blissmiss, you just reminded me of a similar get out/not get out of bed related blunder:
Got up late, my 5 year old was still in bed: needed to get ready for the school bus real quick. Had to convince her to miss her morning shower: there were tears.
During the brief breakfast, I realised it was a school holiday. What did she say?

       "Daddy! I didn't have a shower for nothing!"   

       I laughed most of the way to work, that morning.

       Ha! That's a good one. I give you an 8.
