I have been browsing some other web sites of recent; Rands in Repose, Daring Fireball, Murchison’s Musings, and DrunkenBlog. Several of their articles have crossed paths with my daily “news-navigation” time – and now have been integrated. Often developers themselves, I have found that I am getting more educated on tools, software, and techniques that directly relate to my everyday life. Though, at times, they also provide some amusing stories from their lives.
I know, it is not fun to laugh at other people – especially ones that I don’t know – but it is OK to laugh along with them right? Well, today I came across a post that had me rolling with laughter … not only because it was funny – but also cause I have seen myself in similar situations. I just am a little more cautious before spending $70! Really, it brought back memories of letting my pots of boiling water run dry … letting the chicken cook to a crisp … and purchases of sour cream instead of cream cheese (hey … I just did not read the label … they were sitting right next to each other on the shelf!)
Thanks goes out to DrunkenBlog for brightening up the day.
Scarily enough, it’s prolly not my worst clueless story, just the longest. :p Glad you got a chuckle out of it though.
