Nothing is quite as great as someone who is so sure they know the best way to do something and are then met a laughable disaster to show they don’t. Nobody got seriously hurt in this story, but boy did his wife learn a lesson after all! This Storyblender from our Storyblend Facebook Group shares a story about he and his ex-wife and what he recounts as a hilarious happening.
“I was a truck driver for 25 years of my life, and I’ve shared some stories from those years, this is one I was reminded of seeing a shared .gif clip this afternoon.
My first ex-wife and I walked out of a rest area restroom break one night not long after a light rain had ended, and rather than walk down the sidewalk, I decided to ease down a rather precipitous slope to get down to where the truck was parked. I went sideways, cautiously, planting my feet solidly, and arrived safely at the bottom. Now, my ex was a showoff, and said, “Let me SHOW you how this is done!” as she started charging down the hill, only to fall on her butt with a loud “OOMPHHHH!” an unladylike squall, and slide the remaining 40 feet on her back, getting soaked in the process all the while howling like a cat getting baptized.
When something is so uproariously hilarious, I find it difficult to contain my laughter. That little devil is harder to catch than a toddler with something in his mouth! So I was busting a gut laughing as I’m trying to help her up, but she keeps slipping and thump, back to her rump! She’s a cussin’ and a bitchin’, a hitchin’ and scootin’ a tad funny, ’cause she’s got mud and crud in unmentionable places!
She finally scooted on her tuchas to the edge of the sidewalk to get some traction, and I was able to get her to her feet, and boyo, was she pissed! She’s walkin’ a bit sideways, too, tryin’ to get the remainders out of her bits. Madder than a wet and muddy hen, lemme tell ya! She was a whoopin’ and a hollerin’ at me for the next hour, trying to get me to stop gigglin’!
Made her even madder as the funny bone would pop up every once in a while and I’d say “Let me SHOW you!” under my breath, and start laughing again!
It finally got to the point where she’d laugh about it, too, but it took a little while!
And I swear, I never saw those jeans again!”
