    Lali ho!

    I just had to share this. If only in the hope that nobody here ever becomes stupid enough to replicate it if they're properly warned of the dangers of being a dumbass. Read on...

    I went to my local pet store on my lunch break today to find a new collar for Nanaki, he's outgrowing his old one, and it's kinda crappy anyway. It was a worthwhile venture even though I couldn't find anything, I met another husky, a 6 week old puppy no bigger than a kitten, absolutely adorable. But anyway. So here's me wandering idly through the collar and lead isle, and I encountered what must be the single most epic fail of all time. See, the shop also sells these little dog clothes, little basketball jerseys and the like for the people who like that sort of thing.

    Now to me it seems fairly obvious that if something is labelled as a dog coat, and it's in the middle of the dog accessories isle in a pet shope, logic dictates that it's intended for use with a dog.

    Somebody please explain that to the little indian woman putting the coat on her child.

    I wish to all heaven I was making this up. It made my eyes burn, watching humanity dip that low. I don't expect everyone to be a genius rocket scientist mastermind champion of intellectualism, but for fuck sake. Surely we can do better than this. Ever wonder why we've never been contacted by aliens? Because they shit like that and think 'nah, better leave it'.

    Can anyone top that? Come on, what's the most epic fail you've ever seen? Share, I invite you. And I mean proper fails, you know. Not skateboarding tricks that went wrong or a granny being hit with a frisbee. I mean those moments in life when you see something so ridiculously stupid that you wonder how we ever evolved beyond the level of primordial ooze.

    Well if it fits, and is cheaper than a regular coat. [​IMG]

    True.

    Most epic fail? Tripping right in front of the priest in church. That was me. I nearly knocked over the altar. Then when I actually said what I was supposed to say, I accidentally said the priest's line. Dammit, label the paper decently! Don't just write the letters P and R!

    That is why they should stop making me read these reading things.

    Going to school, and forgetting my backpack.

    Also, my dad going through the Mc Donalds Drive Thru, and forgetting the food. After paying....

    That's the first thing that came to my mind too. Maybe the coat is cute and cheap.

    And one might call buying a dog a coat a much bigger fail anyway. [​IMG]

    Seriously obese people, a whole family, Gran, Mum, Dad, and 2 children a boy who looked about 11 and a girl who looked about 14, all whining about being unhealthy, filling their faces with more food than I would eat in a day while riding mobility scooters from a fast food joint to a pub for a, as they put it "real meal". At a flat seaside resort location less than ten minutes walk from some beautiful beaches in one direction, and an equally flat and just as beautiful nature reserve 20 minutes in the other.

    EDIT: Every day you saw them sat at the same arcade machines, or in front of the same big telly at the pub. Always forcing something down their throats.

    My most epic fail: Accidentally leaning too forward on my chair in class and nearly falling over along with the table, and EVERYBODY stared at me.

    I had something similar but I was in primary school, I was leaning backwards, fell over and my two front teeth knocked out.
    But I was like 7 SO IT WAS ACCEPTABLE.

    Hmm, why did you mention the ethnicity of the woman? Why not just say the little woman. I'm just wondering, not accusing you of being racist or anything so please don't take it the wrong way.

    LOL I can picture that and it seriously is stupid. XD
    Sure, that coat might fit the little kid but why go through the embarrassment of trying the coat in front of the shopkeeper?

    Not really much of a fail. I always thought little kids were like dogs anyway. I mean, think about it. You need to give them their food, you need to clean them once in a while, you need to trim their claws/nails and fur/hair, you need to take care of their poop for them, you have to walk them or they become fat, you can't leave them home unattended or they will make one hell of a mess, you need to give them a good slap to teach them a lesson, you need to show who's the pack leader/boss or they won't respect you. And you sometimes need to keep them on a lease so they don't just run off. And that is why I'll get a cat instead of a child. At least they have a nice fur.
