Video Camera Doldrums! Where Are All The Dumbasses When You Want Them? Includes Practice Video #4!

So I finally get a video camera from my daughter (her old one from2003) which works fine for me. I have taken it with me everyday since I got it and guess what?  That’s right folks, not a dumbass in sight EXCEPT when I am at the wheel of my car.  Then, every dumbass in town is out.  Only I don’t multitask when I drive.  NO, NO, NO, not a good idea for me.  It takes all my concentration to drive and not be a dumbass myself.

I could have gotten great footage this week because town is packed.  There are tourists everywhere. I have seen people do things with their cars that I didn’t think were possible.  But I don’t dare drive and film with all the traffic. I barely talk on my cell phone while driving.

I THINK WE PROBABLY DIDN’T NEED ALL THAT RESEARCH DONE TO FIGURE THIS OUT. YOU LOOK AWAY FROM THE ROADWAY AND BAD THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN.

This is a true story.  I saw one woman go up a one way on the left hand side with her right blinker on and go straight. WTF?

Now we come to Dumbass confessions.  I locked the keys in my car with the car running when I went to the grocery store with my brother. I still don’t know how it happened.

NOTICE HE CALLED HER MA’AM AND DIDN’T EVEN SPELL IT RIGHT.

I had forgotten to return a propane tank so I told my brother to wait in the car and I would go do it.  I decided to start the car because it was really hot in it and I wanted my brother to have the air conditioner on.  My brother hadn’t gotten into the car yet.  He was returning his shopping cart.  I leaned into the car, started the engine, closed the door and all the doors to the car were now locked. I went into the store to get a broom and sneak it through the window, which I had left cracked.  My plan was to use the broom handle to press down on the lock on the opposite door and it would open.  My brother decided he could fit his arm through the window faster than what I was doing and he managed to get his arm in and unlock the door.  Only now his arm was stuck in the window.  Talk about a dumb ass.  He asks me how is he going to get his arm out.  Well I said ” Duh, I’ll open your door and roll down the window”.  He said “Oh”.

Then I thought, why wasn’t I filming all this drama.  Duh, my camera was locked in the car.

So I guess I should just start filming myself doing dumbass stuff.

ME AT THE BEACH.  YOU CAN SEE THE BRIDGE IN THE BACKROUND.
