Ok everyone - what's the silliest thing you've ever done? Ever had a moment when you just wanted the ground to open and swallow you up??
Don't be shy, let's hear your stories. I'll start off with one...
A couple of years ago I moved into a new flat, and decided to get a spare key cut to give to family in case I lost mine. So in my lunchbreak, I walked up to the nearest cobblers/keycutters. It was really busy in the shop, so I gave the guy behind the counter my key, asked for one copy and told him I would come back to collect it half an hour later.
Anyway, the half hour passed and I went back to the shop to collect my new key. I had to wait a while to get served, and by the time I got to the front of the queue there were quite a few people waiting behind me.
The guy went to get me my key, and handed over two sets. I started to tell him that I had only ordered one key, whereas he had given me two. He started to interupt, but I wouldn't let him. I told him it was his mistake, and that I was only going to pay for one copy.
At this point, the woman behind me in the queue pointed out that they had only cut one copy - the other was the original key!!
The whole shop was falling about laughing... and I can't remember ever feeling more embarrased than I did then
