Why people get hit

H i. I’ve decided to start a new thread dealing with what stupid things we’ve all done that had absolutely no need to happen other than our own personal stupidity. Ideally, someone gave you a smack, but it’s OK if you just jacked up your car or destroyed your house. Please add on as you see fit.

GROUND RULES:
1. You MUST have been an adult when this happened. Not that there’s not a reason to whack a kid, I just don’t want to promote something so obvious as idiocy in minors.

2. Any long-term injury may only have been caused to YOU, and it has to be kinda funny.

3. You must indicate the LESSON you learned.

Here we go. Benny’s #1.

1. I beat an ex-girfriend at Mario Cart by shelling her right at the finish line and she got so mad she punched me in the nose. Then she tried to pretend she didn’t. We were the only two in the room.

LESSON: Don’t beat a girl at anything, and if you do, for GODSAKES don’t make fun of her.
