Ridiculous Real Life Stories – Share!


6-29-10:  Initial release.

Yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine, and I heard one of the most ridiculous things that I just had to share it because it was so ridiculous and the fact that it was true just made me grimace every time I tell it.

My friend uses Skype, and this will be his third Skype account. What is so ridiculous about that?  Well, let me give you the background information. So apparently with Skype, you can tell it to remember your password and autologin into the program. What was embarrassing to find out was that my friend had to reformat his computer due to viruses, and by doing so, he lost the account information to Skype.

What I am trying to say is that he didn’t know the password to his own account because he had the Skype program remember it for him. The sad part is he has done this twice already, and when I logged in over the weekend I got a friend invitation from him under a new Skype ID?!

I told him that Skype does have a password retrieval service on their website, and instead of going to Skype.com to do the forgotten password, he just ended up signing up for a new account.  WTF?!

My Skype account is important to me as I have over 80+ contacts. If I had a concussion and somehow forgot the password to my account, I would not be caught with my pants down and I would have used the password retreival feature in a second. I would not even question it.

My friend only has 3 friends on his buddy list, so making a new account for whatever reason beyond belief is not a big deal for him.  It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my life.

I thought instant messenging your co-worker who sits across the cubicle was sad, but I think this one wins the prize!

How about you? Do you have a real life story that is so ridiculous yet true that it pains you to tell it? We want to hear it!

    Well, the story I have in mind is ridiculous, but not positive; it’s kind of horrible, actually.

    The night of prom, afterward, some terrifying things happened. On the drive home, there was some kind of weird U-turn and somehow we ended up on the wrong side of the road; I was steering us through oncoming traffic left and right until we scaled on the right side of the road! It was horrible! That’s not the ridiculous/ironic part though.

    After surviving that experience with no physical injury, we decided to go to breakfast around 2am. The eating went well, and then we were just out of the parking lot, heading for a party when, out of nowhere, this guy fully brakes in the middle of the road. I hit him dead on, and surely enough, I just got into my first accident. Luckily, this guy was drunk, so we both just drove away. It was my fault, but he was also drunk.


  2. These are the poorest excuses for a ridiculous story that I have ever heard in a lifetime of being a part of a gild of ridiculous story tellers.

    You guys are dull as spoons and creative as rocks.

    Congratulations, you win the lame prize award.

    As if your lives are that exciting!

    WOOOOWOOOOWOOOO for you, your friend made a new skype account and you drove away from a car accident. Very original indeed.
