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....

"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.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
