This may come as a surprise to some people, but I feel like the smartest people I know are also some of the most absent-minded folks and they do really embarrassing things that most of us normal humans would not.
So I guess that’s one advantage for us regular folks…
But we’re about to hear from some very enlightened people who made some pretty hilarious snafus…
What do you say, are you ready to check them out?
Let’s get started!
1. Whoopsy daisy.
Sorry about that!
Am not a doctor, but have 2 degrees and was standing at the train station a few years ago when I realised I had forgotten my skirt …. had spilled toothpaste on it – and taken it off to sponge off – got distracted, put coat on, grabbed bag, and forgot to put skirt back on …..

2. Doh! That’s no good.
Did you learn a lesson?
I give you this. After a long week it was finally time to go home. I put my coat on, got my bag ready and locked my office door. I stared at that door knowing something was not right for about 20 secs… and eventually realised I was still inside my office.

3. That’s a thong!
Impressive! went in a customers property last week spent an hour and a half cleaning her chimney,servicing stove only to be told when leaving I had “something on my knee”
it was my 18 year old daughters thong stuck to my knee pad velcro!
It was no bigger than a eye patch!!

4. I like it!
You’re a real fashion plate.
I used to stop at a beach each morning before work and would pack my work clothes to change back into. Once I forgot my shoes and this is the choice of footwear I had. pic.twitter.com/13Pi8Ry2YQ

5. Sorry about that…
It won’t happen again.
I got back from the gym in the building and realized I “disinfected” all the equipment with my bike chain degreaser. pic.twitter.com/4IAQTvQl46

6. Lucky you didn’t have an accident.
Don’t ski when you can’t see!
I am 49, BSc (Hons) 1st, PGDip, member of nowt. I’ve worn to work: black suit jacket w/ blue suit skirt; 1 blue & 1 black shoe; shoes with diff height heels. Also didn’t remove protective film from ski goggles until I had used them for 3yrs on 5 diff 1 week long ski trips. 🤦♀️

7. Bad dog!
That’s not a great look.
I’m not a doctor but I have two degrees, I’m nearly 30 and I’m a qualified teacher. I once sat through a staff meeting and taught lessons without noticing that my right shoe had been chewed to pieces by my dog the previous day.

8. I hope you get that back.
Good luck with that!
I have an LLB, a BA (hons) & an LLM. I went out to post a letter last week. I bought a stamp, put it on the envelope and popped it in the box. I later realised that I hadn’t put the address label on and worse still, my debit card had stuck to the gummed seal. I mailed my own card pic.twitter.com/VGHWIMcdBQ

9. You just extended your stay.
I’m still here…
I was staying with a friend in a foreign city. I was leaving her apartment to go to the airport after she’d left for work. I closed and locked the door with the spare key then slipped the key under the door – only to remember I’d left my purse with my plane ticket inside.

10. Do you like these shoes.
An interesting choice in footwear.
I once picked up a supermarket bag thinking it had my fancy interview shoes in. When I got to my interview it turns out I’d actually picked up a bag of vegetable peels. Needless to say I did not get the job and I blame my bright orange flip flops 🙈

11. Gross out!
A gift for you.
My former boss once complained her shoe felt very tight, she took it off in our office and there she found a dead mouse squished in the bottom. Present from her cat I think

12. Oh no!
A total disaster.
• 29 y/o
• 3 degrees
• also a doc
• (mostly) functional adult
• getting ready for a wedding, spent 90 mins on my make up, sprayed my face with setting spray… it was dry shampoo. Rubbing it only created a sort of paste with my foundation 👻
• …late for wedding
