Who is that moron, Eminence?

Which would be ME! ;)

Yes, due to popular demand (see the comments for the post below) I will relate to you the story of the 1,523,735th time I have made a fool of myself this week.

Tuesday - I think it was Tuesday - I went to the apartment office to pick up the Resident Manual, which I hadn't gotten when I moved in (that is a whoooole other story). Anyway, on the way back I stopped to get our mail. As I walked along, I paid much more attention to paging through the letters and catalogs than I did to where I was walking. Long story short, I walked into apartment 201 instead of 301! And there were people there, two girls and one guy. They all gave me looks like, "Huh?" and I imagine I gave them a "Huh?" look, too. Then I said something to the effect of, "Am I in the wrong apartment? I'm in the wrong apartment. Sorry!" and lit out of there as fast as I could.

The one thing that bothers me is that now that I think about it, I'm not sure it was apartment 201. It might have been 203. However, it is much more comforting to be "sure" about it - since therefore I only have to worry about running into one set of people - so I will just go on saying to myself and others that it was apartment 201.

Dunce strikes again! :)

  1. Wow.

    I can SO TOTALLY see me doing this.

    And furthering the moron-i-zation by telling my dear, loving friends about this and then having them NEVER let me live it down.

    (So, basically, doing exactly what you did, lol.)



    I have to know...

    Was the water free??? ;) ;)

    (Argh! I'm evil! Forgive me for asking!!!!!)
