  • My wife says I'm an idiot.

    After getting sloppy with the CA rapid set adhesive, I managed to inadvertantly get some on the tip of my little finger. I guess I forgot where the puddle was. About that time I developed one of those annoying itches that wouldn't go away and very smoothly, took my right hand, extended my little finger and I jiggled it inside my right ear. The itch stopped and my finger became immediately lodged in my ear. As the realization of my stupidity set in, my wife entered the room. Not wanting to be discovered, I decided it would be best to forget about any plan for removing it and pretended to continue the jiggling, hoping she'd walk on through without noticing anything out of the ordinary. Her usual walk thru wasn't as fast as usual and she lingered to ask a question. By then she had determined this was some serious big itch and I got busted. The extra jiggling made it set even tighter and there I sat with her laughing hysterically at me. I managed to grit and bear the pain as I ripped out half a dozen small hairs along with a healthy chunk of skin before she ran back with the camera. My wife likes to play "show and tell" whenever I screw up. It's okay if I'm the one admitting to a personal failure of common sense, but nothing is more embarassing than her dragging out her photo album full of idiot shots at family get togethers. Am I the lone idiot in this crowd, or does everyone else have a certain someone waiting around like vulture for a screwup to make their day? I should have taken a photo of her foot stuck in the toilet.

      I'm glad I am not the only one!

      What better amusement for our spouse than our carelessness

      I think they invented CA just to see how much of a mess we (Men)

      could make with it and get _____ stuck to our ________.

      Thanks for the laugh!

      And as a bonus you wont have to trim those ear hairs for a while!

        I would have replied sooner, but my finger was stuck to the mouse. I have found it on my forearms!...days later! I use the debonder more for my fingers than I do for parts.

        Your not alone or an idiot...we all are idiots!!
