    TMW you arrive to a safety meeting at work and there’s only, like, three people.

    Oh yeah, Halo is one of those series you can die almost instantly if you blunder through the scenery without finding cover or checking for ambush spots. I had a rude awakening when I started playing Halo and Halo 2 after years of playing RPGs and shooters with more forgiving health bars.

    TMW You find a lovely dress in a charity shop, and go to try it on...only to discover that it doesn't fit you. :(

    TMW You are so tired that you start making some dinner, only to realise half way through that you'd previously started making a different dinner! :nosleep:

    Tmw, you realize that your plan to get a second car to save money on gas isn't such a good idea, when you start factoring in car payments, insurance, vehicle registration and gas, Etc.

    Then they saving in gas doing those very quick unless I plan to decommissioned Betty. Which I don't intend on doing

    I find I often have that problem, though it probably has more to do with the fact that I'm a 280 lb (~127 kg) powerlifting male than anything else.

    TMW watching a livestream Q&A leads you to googling a news article about a Chinese woman who, on July 4th, was arrested and is now missing after she posted on Twitter a video of her splashing oil on a painting of the Chinese leader.

    TMW you hope she knew what was doing, and suspect she is now thoroughly, completely and 100% screwed in every conceivable way. D:

    That moment when you find out you were within an arm’s reach of a rattlesnake and didn’t realize it until a friend pointed it out to you afterward o_O Guess I was pretty lucky this Friday the 13th.

    TMW You don't get something...and when you later work it out, you feel awkward because it was so simple!

    This has never happened to me, obviously...*ahem*

    That moment when you hear--- I mean, hear--- that the teenaged boy next door has taken up the drums.

    . . . Telling myself I'm not one of those writers who needs silence to work. Telling myself.

    We had a downstairs neighbor who really hated his accordion. He tortured it every Saturday, usually starting around noon. It was... interesting.

    So if you're thinking about retaliation, taking up the accordion is a pretty good option. :D
