I don't know what made me think of this today but I figured I would post it while it was fresh on my mind. Goes under the "beat that" banner. This is not a "hold my beer and watch this" thread but rather an honest accident where nobody got hurt (I hope). Here's mine.
I was out mowing on my Power King about 15 years ago or so. Just mowing along, happy as can be when I heard FOOF! I wasn't sure what I hit until I turned around and saw the confetti flying through the air. I immediately reached to my back pocket and I didn't feel my wallet. Then I noticed the crumped and torn piece of leather laying in the yard with the pieces of it's contents quietly settling back down to the earth. Yep, I mowed over my wallet. My driver's license (which at this point I didn't figure I deserved) was in around 80 pieces. When I went to the DMV to get a new one they asked me to see the old one. I had it with me in a bag so I took it out and dumped the pieces on the counter. The lady looked and just said "Oh". Hey, beats trying to explain it. Amazingly, my social security card was in tact. I'm glad because those are a real pain to get a replacement.
OK, you get the picture, now lets hear yours. Moral of my story is, obviously, never mow with your wallet in your pocket. So, beat that!
