Disclaimer: As unbelievable as this may sound, everything & everyone mentioned here are real.

Chutney's Top 5 "What were you thinking?! moments" in no specific order:

1. My sister has the habit of multitasking. She's particularly good at chatting with 10 people at the same time on Gtalk. Once, she was talking with two people, X & Y, both who were orignally my friends but eventually ditched me when they fell for my sister's cutsie-pieness (not). So, in an attempt to piss her off, I grab the keyboard from her and type "X, X, look varsha is putting (tamil/english slang for flirting) with Y" and hit enter.
I am jubilant.
"Stuppid!" my sister shouts.
"Haha!! Gotcha! Bakra!"
"Idiot, you are the bakra. You just typed that in Y's chat window".


2. I had seen the movie "Oram Po" that afternoon and was on an after-movie high since I really liked it. I was in my room listening to the movie's soundtrack on my iPod when my mother called me. I thought it was for my evening coffee. So I went out to the living room, singing "Jigu Jickaan Jigu Jickaan Jickaan" at the top of my lungs. Wonder of wonders, my dad's biggest client was sitting in the living room, trying very hard not to burst into laughter while my parents looked like they wanted to melt into the floor.

3.During my outstation audit in Pune, I had been fiddling with the settings of my Phone and before I got to reset settings to original, we were called to the Manager's room. My phone rang. Which meant my ringtone was Borat saying "I like-a you. I like-a sex. It's naaaaice."

4. When I was in my 8th or 9th, Eminem was all the rage. And like every 'cool' kid, I knew the Slim Shady song backwards. I had even burned a CD for the CD player in my car (which amp-ed up my coolness). Dad picked me up one evening. We were perfectly happy listening to the local radio when my dad suddenly reached for the "source" button on the player. And within seconds, Eminem's dulcet tones and dignified opinions fill the air -
"And there's a million of us just like me
who cuss like me; who just don't give a F**K (extra emphasis) like me".

5. I went for CPT Coaching to this ultimate Hellhole during the months of June & July. It was around 3pm on the 2nd of July, I remember it oh-so-clearly. I had been there since 6 in the morning, and I hadn't had lunch either, so I was really, really, pissed. I was cussing outside - "I fricking hate this place! That bloody N (teacher there)....I swear, I wish he walks by now, I am so totally going to strangle him to death."
To cut a long story short, my wish got fulfilled the next second.


I know what you're thinking, and yes, I am very much for real.

UPDATES:
On popular request, this has been made a tag (Although I have a sneaking suspicion that this already is one).
So yea, the rules are simple, 5 screw ups in no specific order.
I tag you! :)

  11. I think I would rate them this way:

    1 takes the cake, considering I know the concerned parties and the significance;).

    Then 3

    Then 2

    Then 5

    Then 4

  17. Hahahahaha! I've had countless "jiggu jickan" moments. Nowadays, I generally look around cautiously before deciding to burst into a nonsensical song.

    Oh, and the teacher thingie...*sigh*. My case was like this - just after a class, bitching about the prof in the Metro to some friends and discussing how unfairly he marked tests and exams...and exclaiming, "Bloody [expletive][expletive] (I'd have mentioned them if they'd been mild like 'mofo' or something) [another expletive] [prof name], the biggest idiot I've ever seen in my short little life! Once I get out of this stupid uni, I'll tell him all this on his stupid podgy face!". He was sitting two seats away. I'd rather not talk further about it...

  18. Enjoyed enormously. Including comments by Preeti and Drenched.

    I can relate to dharmabum. I feel so old sometimes. This made me feel young again. Though for the life of me I can't remember doing anything so hilariously funny
