:D :confused: :confused: Paul, there's somethings in life you really shouldn't admit - thats one. :p


But while we're on the subject i feel the need to confess to mistaking a old shape micra for a MINI - just once (well twice and it was darkish), i felt thoroughly ashamed. Is there a support group? :eek:

After a night out in a large Midlands conurbation ,drinking Brew XI with friends, we returned to a hotel for the night. During the night feeling the urge to take a leak, and being in strange surroundings I opened a door I thought was the bathroom, and ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.

Well It was'nt the bathroom, it was a walk in wardrobe.:eek:

Never been back to the Birmingham Metropole since:D

Friconel - I did that once and shut the door behind me.... it wasn't the toilet, it was the corridor!!

So there I was in the corridor, starkers at 3am locked out :( I had to go downstairs, through the bar (where there were people still drinking) to get the night porter to let me back in :eek::eek::eek::eek:

I once mistook a red Ford Escort, for, well, for a red Ford Escort.

Doesn't sound that bad, right?

A work colleague was suposed to pick me up early one rainy morning. 10 minutes late, 20, 30 - then he pulls up right at my feet. The door opens and some woman gets out.

Ah, that's why he's late - I think - he's had to pick someone else up too.

Anyway, I hold the door open for the lady, 'Morning!' I say as she gets out and lift the seat for a second young lady in the back. Again, I hold open the door, politely, 'morning' I say again with a smile. They both rushed off into the rain so I got in the car and I buckled up my seat-belt.

'Who the f*** are you?!?!' said the driver...! :eek:

The only one that speings to mind was me mistaking a lady at the bar to be my good friend. I walked up and grabbed her. She then turned around and to my horror it was a complete stranger. Luckily she took it quite well.:D

I also had some acquaintances at Uni who were identical twins. It was a nightmare when we went out because you never knew which one you were talking to as they both dressed the same and had very similar haircuts. :p

I've remembered another one.

I invited some mates back after a night out so we made our way back to my halls. I walked into the kitchen to find it a mould-infested kitchen now spotless. Not giving it much thought I then proceeded to open the cupboard to find several boxes of biscuits. We all shared in my flat so I put the kettle on and we all tucked in. We were there for about 30mins before I went to go into my room. To my surprise my key wasn't working, I tried and tried again but it wouldn't go in. All of a sudden the door opens and a half naked man appears.:eek: "who the feck are you?" I said....."Who the feck are you" he replied. Then it dawned on me that it wasn't my flat, we had got off on the wrong floor.:p We all just legged it.:D

Once accidentally blurted out 'Dad' when addressing my English teacher, rather then calling him by his name.

Not sure why to this day - he looked nothing like my dad :p

Cotswold Run last year - at Sudely Castle ready to leave, jump into my CR/W Cooper, go to put mobile in it's holder and there's one there already :confused: Suddenly realise I'm not in my MINI :eek: Try to get out quietly without being seen but was spotted and had mick taken mercilessly a few times :mad: :eek: :D

Also I was in a B&B while doing a holiday job, got up in the night and had a pee (a few beers had been drunk ;) ) , got back to bed and went off to sleep. Get woken by furious landlady as I'd gone back into the wrong bedroom :eek: Luckily it was rented out - or unlucky maybe as I might have scored, that or got arrested :eek: :D

Never happened to me but there's a girl in our office was out bowling one night and standing at the bar when a Guy came up behind her and grabbed a real big handful of her ar$e!

She turned round and asked him what he was doing and he almost died of embarrasment on the spot -- came out with some excuse that he thought she was his wife - -same build, hair length etc :D

Funny thing is she said she wouldnt have minded if he wasnt so bad looking :eek:

Never worked for me -- I just get slapped :D

I was staying at my mates house in Ireland once, after a few beers I got up in the middle of the night to go for a wazz, went to get back into bed only to find my mates mum and dad in it :eek:

I'd gone into the wrong room :eek::eek::eek: His mum had to put me back to bed. I didn't remember a thing till they reminded me about it over breakfast the next morning :eek:

I used to play rugby with a guy when I was a lad who had a similar nightime bladder problem after several beers to button who was woken by his girlfirends parents one night when he decided to take a leak........ Only his problem was he was standing on their bed with it in his hand ready to offload shall we say!

I would hasten to add the relationship soon fizzled out after that :D
