Lol. We all have those moments. My Dad put a nail straight though a water pipe and flooded the house. We called out a plumber and it was one of my Dad’s mates. He laughed as soon as he saw the mess and said “Dave what have you done, you should know better”. Thing is, my Dad’s a builder.I remember this day so well.
I'd just bought a new fridge, and it was far too big for the kitchen in our tiny rental. Was listening to the game on the radio while trying to move it into place. Got real hot and bothered (combination of the game and fridge). Ended up taking a big chunk off the corner of the kitchen bench, and also hitting the oven/stove too hard and snapping the gas connection.
Oh yeah, and we conceded 13 tries. Lol.
The fridge has gone the distance though, I've still got it today!
I thought I would save money by replacing my own exhaust. I needed a ramp to get underneath so I used the one at my army base. As I got to the top of the ramp in my car, I heard the screeching sound of metal. I got out under the car to look and almost cried. The floor pan was punctured and the brake lines were severed. I forgot to take into account the guide rails that stop you driving off the ramp accidentally. They were designed for armored vehicles with tracks, not Volkswagen Jettas! As I went over the apex, the rails speared my car like a Japanese whaler. I have never touched an exhaust ever again.
