We all like to think we've got ourselves together... that is, until we do something ridiculous, like confuse the items in their hands.

Oh, it happens. Do you want to know the number of times I've put my phone in the fridge without realizing? (Trust me, you don't.)

After Redditor DanielMichels asked the online community, "What is the worst thing you have done because you got confused by items in different hands?" people lined up to share their tales of embarrassment.

"The fridge is now..."

"My husband..."

My husband cleans the cat litter box and puts the gleanings in a tied off plastic grocery bag. He also puts his lunch in a tied off plastic grocery bag. When he goes to work he takes both bags outside, one to come with him and one for the trash can. Mistakes have happened.
