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!!!
F my life
In a similar vein... (I now notice daseva mentioned this first - well, here it is anyway) [fridge duck, Apr 16 2009]
they've made a horrible TV show like this!!

||We have this guy over here called Gordon Brown...
||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
||fmylife.com is fun like this. But, I like the competitive edge.+
||I figured there must be a site out there like this.
Thanks for letting me know about it.
||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
||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.
