Mine was a few years ago when we had two dogs.

Every night I would take them in my car to the local fields for a run round. Another man seemed to have a similar routine with his dog and we would pass the time of day.

One day we arrived at the fields at the same time and I lifted the back door of my car whilst shouting " Come on you two"

I noticed his quizzical look and glanced into my hatchback...………..

I'd forgotten the dogs :ohmy: :ohmy: :ohmy:

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

This is a very embarrassing story but it’s quite funny as well. It happened when I was about 28 so it’s half a lifetime ago now. I went to the village pub one hot summer’s evening and had far too many pints of Carlsberg.

I got a lift home and had to ask the driver to stop after a mile, which was the halfway point of the journey. I really needed a wee. I was right out in the middle of nowhere so I just walked away from the lane about ten yards into the undergrowth, behind the proverbial bush. I had just started to ‘go’ when my eyes began to focus in the dark and I saw a single thick strand of wire about 3 inches in front of my face. An electric fence!

I was so scared of being zapped by the fence that I threw myself backwards. (You know how all movements tend to be a bit dramatic and exaggerated when you’ve had a few!) The next thing I knew I was falling through space and with a huge splash I entered some water. My whole head went under. It was very deep and an incredible shock.

My head popped up and I began to try to claw my way out. I knew I had fallen into a deep rain-filled drainage ditch. The sides were made of clay with the odd patch of wiry grass growing out of it. The only way I could get out was to dig my fingers into the sides.

I emerged, absolutely dripping and got back into the car. The driver immediately set off, in a hurry, without looking at me.

When we stopped outside my cottage I opened the door and the interior light came on. The driver shouted ‘My Gosh! What happened to you?’ I went inside mumbling about falling into a ditch and he drove off.

I had some kind of pondweed in my hair, my hands were orange coloured and covered in mud and my feet squelched in my boots. I was wearing a brand new vintage, brown leather, Top Gun style jacket. It was never the same again. My cigarettes and lighter were floating about in my side pocket. Worst of all, in my top inside pocket I had the company cheque book from work and the bank paying in book. I squinted at the stubs in each book and the ink had run and made everything illegible.

I decided honesty was the best policy. So the next day at work I apologised for the ruined cheque book and paying in book, explaining that I had fallen into a ditch. The whole office fell silent and I don’t think they thought about me the same way after that.

I too do many, and also can't remember lots of them. Today it was the lettuce and cucumber I threw in the bin instead of putting them in the fridge as I intended. Minor I know, but I do keep myself amused.
Maybe it was the year I drove to Luton airport with my youngest daughter for a holiday in Turkey. I was so thrilled that we found the airport, got there in time, and I had actually managed the driving after years of not being able to go on this type of holiday, and thinking I would never do it again. I got out of the car, got the suitcases out, and then couldn't find my handbag. We both searched the car, and finally had to conclude I hadn't brought it. Nor the tickets, passports and money! I really couldn't believe it as I am usually so organised, had been awake most of the night, dressed and ready early, with my bag on my body! But no, at some point, I must have taken it off, and put it down somewhere at home.
People were very kind telling me of times they did the same, but we went home in the car of my daughter's friend who had raced down the motorway having collected it for us, to arrive ten minutes after they closed the gate. We stopped and bought lots of wine for the evening. We tried again the next day.
I much prefer Rain and Ivorbigwedges stories!

Well, at least you have good taste in lager Rain. That gave me a very good laugh!
