I was working in my schools computer lab. A girl came in and started to print something from the self service printers. While she was waiting for her job to finish she SAT ON THE PRINTER! As she sat there she managed to turn the power off with her butt and then couldnt figure out how to turn the printer back on. She then told me that she couldnt figure out how to turn it back on and that I would have to do it for her. 10 seconds later I was sitting back down after flipping the power switch to on.

My friend asked me to buy a polo from her for a fundraiser. Being a nice guy, and also slightly liking her I agreed. Two weeks later right before I graduated I got an e-mail from her saying that the polos were in and that I should stop by and get one. I did and found that she didn't have one for me, because she either lost it or didn't get it. She took down my home address saying that she would mail it to me as soon as it got in. I then went into work and found that she had done the same thing to one of my colleague. Later that day we got an e-mail saying she had found his... mine was still lost.

I used to go to a Catholic college. One day while sitting in the caff. a sweet, ederly nun came up to me and asked if I could do her a favor. Of course I said yes, how could I not? I followed her out to the parking lot to her car and she said okay get in. Not knowing this favor was so involved, I was reluctant, but again who could say no? She drove me into the city and to a small broken down house. She told me there was a young pregnant girl inside who was expecting our drop off of donated baby clothes and other supplies. In reallity, there was a young pregnant girl in there who was NOT expecting us to come by and who was very frightened by me as I walked into her house with a giant box. Only the eventually entrance of the nun a few seconds behind me prevented her from wailing the cordless phone she had in her hand, at my head.

my friends and I had decided to go to a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert in Buffalo New York. While we were there it started to snow and showed no signs of stopping. We decided to brave the snow and drive home (to Erie). On the way home the snow was so thick that I could not see beyond my own headlights and was bouncing back and forth between the rumble strips. It was at this time that one of my friends whom I had known for about 6 months at the time decided that we were all going to tell our life story. I was fine with this until he decided to tell me that he was gay. I jerked so hard that I almost sent the car careening off the road. I thought he was joking until all of my friends in the car confirmed it. After that I realized we had been driving for 3 hours and still were not at the PA border.

I was working an internship at a political headquarters in our state capitol. I made a coment to fellow female intern that she did not apreciate and she slapped me. I obviously could not hit her back, but I vowed vengence. She was wearing a black suite and I saw white stickers on the table. I wrote slap me on the sticker and put it on her back. Not my most mature moment, I know, but still funny. Just then, five state senators walked in. The joke was no longer funny because now I feared for my job. I knocked the sticker off her back and it fell onto her chair which she promptly sat on. The senators enter the room, there was nothing I could do at that point. She went for the rest of the day with slap me on her butt. God willing this wont affect her chance at law school. Oops.

My brother had just failed his drivers test again. On the way home, we drove past this lake that has a path around it for people to walk, bike, etc. on. I did not want to go for a walk because I was wearing flip flops, but my mom said we would go for just 10 minutes since it was a nice day and it would cheer my brother up...four hours later we were still walking (my feet were killing me!) and had not made it back to the car yet. We had passed at least 3 times by the same skater guy. To this day, I think that guy was just messing with us some how. My dad called us at one point and asked where we were and we told him we were on foot and had no idea where we were. He responded with a surprised, "What?????" Eventually, we did make it back to the car. By then my brother had forgotten about his failure, and we still cannot believe the experience we had.

I had a dream. In the dream, I was in the woods, and had an encounter with Gollum from Lord of the Rings. He had the One Ring. I fought with him, and stole it from him. Then, for some reason, he ran away from me, which doesnt really make sense, since Gollum tries to steal the ring from Frodo in the book, but then again, I am not a LOTR character, so my existence in this story probably doesnt make sense either. So I chased after him, but he ran faster than me. I eventually found a girl i knew from high school, asked her where Gollum went, and she told me where he went, and then I woke up, and LOLed.

When I was little, we were at the zoo just after watching Jurassic Park. It was dark out, and it had started thundering and lightning. The thunder sounded like the t-rex coming for us as we walked down the forest path in the pouring rain. As we headed for the car, we were stopped by a clown selling Bounty soap. Then, on the way home we got lost and stopped to ask a guy standing at the top of a parking garage for directions. He just kept yelling down to us that we could not park there, and we kept yelling back that we were not parking and just wanted directions. Getting nowhere with that gut, we found a kind gentlemen who helped us get back to a road where we knew where we were. We made it home safely.

I was in the woods hunting and I ran into a bear which I shot and killed. I made the bear skin into a rug. I decided that instead of telling my much younger brother and sister that this happened, I would wrap the bear skin around my and scare them to death. I rang the door bell to their house and when my brother pulled aside the curtain to see who was there, he instantly began screaming and running off. Fantastic.

Eric and I were talking and he said he had returned to our old high school to get his transscript so he could transfer to a different college. Our old high school had recently undergone renovations and expansion and he was walking around with his girlfriend, who still went there at the time, just in awe of the new changes that were made. After getting turned around in the building he walked out and into a giant room with wood floors. Taking it all in he let out a gasp and asked what the room was for. His girlfriend then informed him that it was the gym and it had been there since before he had graduated.

Eric and I were at the site launch party for MyOneBestStory.com. Where did we go? Quaker Steak n Lube. Who all went? Just the 2 of us, yeah were cool. So while we were being waited on Eric spilled his ranch all over the table, but our very attractive waitress just joked about him needing a bib and gave him some napkins. Thinking I would be smooth I paid the bill and wrote my number on the back of it. She never called, I felt like an idiot. Epic Fail!

I went to the DMV to take my drivers test for the third time (yes I know thats sad). This time I actually passed the test and I went in to get my licence made. When I got in there,I walked up to the man at the computer who congratulated me. I proudly stuck my hand out for a handshake, simultaneously realising that the mans hand was deformed. My first reaction was to bring my hand back, but then thinking that that would be rude I started to put my hand back out. My next thought was this poor man might not be able to even shake hands, so not wanting him to feel bad, I began to bring my hand back again. All these thoughts happened over a matter of a few seconds and the result was a tense half a minute in which I made a wood sawing motion with my hand presenting it out and pulling it back over and over. I shook the hand, it was an awkard moment for all involved, but hey I got my license.

My roommates and I were playing Shadow Run, (A paper pencil RPG)and drinking. One of my friends had parked himself 40Km away from a structure he was trying to snipe into. After he had sniped, he decided he was going to get out of the tree and run up to the building to help the rest of us. We asked him if he realized how far 40Km was and his responce was "umm... .4m!" (it looked like doing the math hurt especially cause he was so drunk) Later we found out that even when he is sober he can't figure out how far 40Km is.

I was going out on my own for the first time at my new job. I was a door to door salesman for the summer. As the day progressed I made a few sales and my confidence grew. The next house on my list was a large, expensive looking brick house. I knocked on the door, waited for about a minute and I began to walk away assuming nobody was home. I was almost to the side walk when I heard someone in the house banging on the window. I got kind of excited because I thought, hey this guy really wants to buy. I got back to the door and when the man answered, he was completely in the nude. This was a first for me. There was an awkard moment which was broken by the naked man, "O, I thought that you were my son." he said. "That doesn't make this any more normal." I said. He continued to stand there in all his glory. "What are you selling?" he said. "Nothing" I said and I got out of there.

I was in gym in high school. We were working on team building exercises, and we were supposed to go out and work with getting the entire class over a 12 foot wall, there was a ledge on one side to stand on and a latter to get down from the ledge. When we got out there the teacher couldn’t find the latter but said that we could do it provided that “No one fell off the wall and suede him.” Guess who fell off… I ended up with 12 staples in the back of my head and breaking a sapling in half. On the bright side I found out who my true friends were and got to ride in an ambulance.

I was driving to school. I got to a stop light and looked over to watch a guy crossing the street. He got past me and I thought he was safe, and then I saw the other car… The other car was not slowing down fast enough and ended up slamming into the pedestrian. The pedestrian didn’t look like he was hurt, but he did spill the slushy he was carrying all over the hood of the cat that hit him. In fact I heard the pedestrian say “You made me spill my slushy” and he seemed more irritated about that than anything else. Suddenly the guy in the other car got out of his car, and walked up to the pedestrian and started to beat him, I can only assume for spilling slushy on the front of his car.

When i was little, like 5 or so; my mom and I went out shopping. When we got home, my mom left me in the car to take my brother in and some of the groceries. Well in my young mind, I decided that I wanted to learn to drive today. I got into the drivers seat, took off the hand break, put it into gear, and grabbed the steering wheel. In retrospect, I made it pretty far, all the way from my driveway to my neighbor's dining room, not to bad for my first time out.

I was getting ready for my first day back to school after Christmas break. It's never easy getting up at six in the morning, but it is especially brutal after a break. I came grogily downstairs and let up our new cat that my sister had gotten for Christmas. Now, I don't know where my family got this cat, but wherever it was, it had spent the first part of its life as a non-demesticated cat. From time to time, the cat would sort of lose its mind and begin running around my house with absolutely no purpose in mind. That is what it began to do when I let it up on that particular morning and I thought nothing of it, except that I admired its energy for that time of day. I sat at my kitchen table as my mom began to pack my lunch. As I sat there I looked over and saw my cat was no longer running, but instead, standing on the top of my couch looking at my mother as if the cat was planning something. Then as if something snapped inside my cat's head, the cat jumped of the couch and began charg

As I was walking along the floor gave out from under me, and I ended up stuck in the floor of my attic and the roof of my first floor. I started to call for my wife to help me but she was in the basement and didn’t hear me. Then finally after about twenty minutes of me struggling she came up. I imagine the image of my legs dangling there was pretty amusing for her, but I was loosing feeling in those legs and didn't find it nearly as entertaining. Obvioulsly since I am writing this, I am no longer in the roof; thank you world for your concern.

I learned that God answers prayers. My father had lost his job, a couple weeks before Christmas. Times were tight. It was Christmas and we went to church before going to my uncles. The church was decorated in all its Christmas glory: three large trees, lights, a manger. We got there early, lit a candle, and said a prayer. When the mass ended my father and sister headed for the car, while my mom and lingered for a moment talking. A man came up to us that we had never seen before, not surprising since at Christmas, you tend to see a lot of people you don’t normally. The man looked at us and I will never forget his words; “I don’t know why, but I feel like I am suppose to come over to you and tell you that whatever your worrying about; it’s going to be okay.” He shook my mom’s hand while placing a hundred dollar bill in her hand. He wished us a Marry Christmas and left. I just stood there starring and my mom began shaking and crying and had to sit. My dad got a new job a week later.

I found out that everything happens for a reason. I was driving in the middle of the country at around midnight. There was one dim street light along the road I was traveling. I remember so vividly that as I was passing that light I saw movement in front of me. I slammed on my breaks, but it was too late. I collided with Charlie, the town drunk. Naturally I went into a panic; I had no idea what to do. The man was unconscious and I ran as fast as I could to the nearest house to call 911. The police arrived, followed shortly by an ambulance. The police officer that talked to me was woman. She was quite beautiful and she saw that I was shaken. She assured me that everything would be okay in a way that just made me believe her. I don’t think I could have made it through that night if she had not been there for me, nor the fifty years after which I spent married to her. As for Charlie, he broke both his legs, but they eventually mended and he never had a drink again. Ever since then I have

I woke up for the first day of my first job. My job: clean school busses. I know, classic first job right? When I got there I met my new co-worker. If you will picture a sixty-five year old Cherokee woman who is completely insane. Anyway, we started cleaning our first bus. I was in the back cleaning some graphic material off the back of the seat (btw, I now know more about some kid named Jason's mom than I ever wanted to know). All of the sudden I hear a scream calling me to the front of the bus. I came running thinking my co-worker was in trouble. She was cleaning the stairs with a cleaner that basically amounts to putting a sheet of ice on the ground. When I got to the stairs, the last thing I remember is my feet becoming parrallel with my head. I woke up to the laughter of several co-workers. My nickname from then on was superman, they said because of my temporary ability to fly. You gotta love first jobs.

I was already having a particularly horrible day. My grandmother just had to go to the hospital, I had just gotten some bad news from school, everything seemed to be going wrong. All I wanted at this point in my day was a delicious jonior bacon cheesber from Wendy's. On my way home from school, I got into the turning lane to pull into Wendy's. As I was sitting at the light, I happened to stare at my engine temp. gauge. It was in the danger zone. I thought to myself, boy I have never seen it that high, you would think if it was in the red like that the engine would be on fire. That is when I looked up from my dashboared and into the big billowing cloud of smoke coming from my hood. Not knowing what to do I immeadiately turned my car off. At this point the light turned green and seeing as how this was rush hour on a very busy high- way I knew I was in trouble. I tilted my head up to the sky, clossed my eyes, and said God help me out on this one. I opened my eyes and looked into my rear v

I woke up to a dreadful sound. It was the sound of my golden retriever being attacked by my neighbor’s pit bull. A dog fight (unless you’re Michel Vick) is a terrible experience. Their dog had my dog by the throat and pinned against the wall. Not knowing what to do, I began whaling on their dog with an aluminum broom that happened to be outside. I bent the broom but the dog was completely un-phased. Eventually my dog slipped free and we were able to keep them separated. The Ritz cracker size whole in my dog’s neck told me she needed a vet. Today is the day I found out that vets are only open twenty-three hours a day. When I called the night vet, and they said they would be closed before I could get there, and the day vet would not open for an hour. After a very tense sixty minutes, we got into the vet’s office and found the necessary surgery would cost 2,000 dollars we did not have. The neighbors, who we are now suing, refused to give anything even though their dog was off its leash an

I was on the roof of my house cleaning the gutters. After I had cleaned a section I stood up to move to the next section and I dropped my sponge. In an effort to save the sponge, I lunged for it. I then lost my balance on the roof and ended up starting to fall to. I made a desperate grab for the gutters that I had just cleaned and snagged them, then let go not wanting to damage them and landing on my butt in the giant bushes outside my house getting stuck, while narrowly avoiding the concrete poured steps to my front door. I started to call for my wife and all she did was come out and laugh at me and called my kids out to see too.
