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.


"Put a wad of tissues..."

Put a wad of tissues in the laundry basket and threw my socks into the toilet.

"Stuck a dog treat..."

Stuck a dog treat in my mouth and gave my dog my popsicle. She was thrilled.

"Phone in one hand..."

Phone in one hand, open Pepsi bottle in the other. Threw the wrong one on my bed.

"To be fair..."

Was drinking a hot cup of coffee on the back porch while throwing a ball for my dog...To be fair it was like 4am and the pup wasn't hurt, but my favorite mug got rearranged and the tree got some dirty bean water....

"I was writing..."

I was writing while drinking coke. I ended up stabbing myself in the face with a pencil.

"A couple minutes ago..."

A couple minutes ago I unwrapped a stick of gum, stuck the wrapper in my mouth, and threw the gum in the trash.

"The fridge is now..."

I have put the house phone in the fridge and left the milk out more times than is healthy.

The fridge is now the default first place I look if the phone is not on its cradle.

"I had a cup of coffee..."

I had a cup of coffee and a little single-serve container of coffee cream. I opened the cream container, poured its contents into the trash, and then dropped the empty container into my coffee.

"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.

"I cracked an egg..."

I cracked an egg, poured out the egg into the trash and put the shell into a bowl.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
