    There are plenty of reason for a facepalm. There's rarely a day without a facepalm.

    Share yours with us - this thread could make our day, every day :)

    Indeed, guys, let's avoid politics - like in general on OF - please :)

    Sorry chaps - we've been mainlining on continual politics coverage here for so long now that one can forget that it's probably taboo on a place dedicated to enjoyment like OF.

    To be more in-tune, I offer this, the watch I was wearing when I went to my first senior management meeting in 1976 and our Sales Director of the day asked me what on earth it was!

    Quite right - in fact there’s already a very well-known internet forum on which people from around the world love to scream their political views at each other. Have any of you heard of ‘Twitter?’

    Not me but a friend of mine... bought an audiobook CD and was listening to it in the car. Couldn’t keep up with the storyline. It didn’t make sense. Thought he was either thick or the book was just too complicated. Then he realised he had the CD player set to ‘shuffle’ mode...

    I'll put my hand up for a similar facepalm- found an Italian course on Spotify to follow during the commute. It seemed a little erratic, went from numbers to asking how to fill in a form to conversations to describing mountains. Took a week to realise I still had shuffle on.

    Whole
    Week.

    Never understood the simulated boogers coming from the nose as jewelry.
    Wait until they catch it on something.

    A guy saw my Rolex Explorer posting on in the local classifieds and proceeds to request: first, a close up pictures of the lugs; then, a close up of the crystal; and finally, in a third email, a close up of the clasp. After taking and sending him these pictures, he says he would like to meet in person to see the watch and possibly buy it. I agree, leave work early, meet him near his bank and let him have a look at the watch. He goes on and on talking about his rather boring life and finally--after 30 f#@$ing minutes--says: "Great. Thanks. But I can't afford it."

    18 years ago, i started work in a bank. They stressed a lot on security, never open the door for anyone, NEVER EVER!

    In my first week, i was sitting in the reception area waiting for my colleagues to go for lunch when i heard a rapping on the glass door. I turned to look & saw a short, elderly looking man staring at me & gesturing to the door switch. I was hesitant & started to say i wasn't allowed to but he just went "it's ok, i work here" & gestured for me to press the switch. I couldn't ignore him as he kept tapping on the door towards the switch. "i left my pass on the table, just open the door"

    "Are you sure it's ok? " i asked him & he nodded vigorously. So i opened the door & in he strode, really fast. I started to panic, what harm could he do? He's an old man, but wait, the security briefing said not to take anyone for granted. So i walked after him, asking if he worked here, he didn't break his stride, just saying "yes, you must be new here" over his shoulder. He started to pull away, so i asked for his name.

    He stopped suddenly, then dramatically turned around with a wry smile on his face, and told me his name.

    He was the head of country.....::facepalm1::

    LOL. I had a guy do something similar to me. I was selling my Jaguar (automobile) and he came to see it, we went for a test drive, got back to my house and asked him what he thought.

    "Oh it's very nice," he said.

    "So, you're going to buy it?" I asked.

    "Oh no, I just never drove a Jaguar before and always wanted to."
