    I have a whole lot of these but I'll just give one for now.
    When I first got my drivers licence almost ten years ago, I was in my brothers car driving it with one of my friends and it had just stopped snowing. We decided to go to a friends house and when we got there I went up the driveway a little too fast. When I hit the brakes I slid into the aluminum garage door and put a huge dent in the garage door. Being young and dumb I put the car in reverse and flew out the drive way. Luckily there was no one home and it didn't do any damage to the car. No one ever found out it was me either.

    as far as dumb driving stories go, years ago when I was 16 me and my friends were all ditching school and hanging out at the beach. we decided we wanted to listen to music, so me being the genious I was attempted to drive my ford escort, which had about 2 inches of ground clearance onto the beach so we could listen to the stereo. yeah I got about ten feet and sank like a rock. of course right then the beach patrol shows up, and after giving me a piece of their mind, they let the air out of my tires, helped pushed it back onto the pavement, and then got an air compresser to fill my tires back up. lol what an idiot I was. in my defense though, it wasn't my idea, but we decided to use my car cause it had the best stereo in it. I was also stoned at the time, so my judgement was just a tad off. lol.

    While we're on stupid driving stunts, I pulled the worst one of all.

    I was driving a Navigator about a while back, and I only had one contact in (the same morning, the other one split), and so I was PARKING, and I hit another small car.

    It had a little scratch, but I left before the other car did, and I never told anyone (although I'm sure they were pissed when they saw it)

    i once had a go at fixing my guitar amp as it was making a strange buzzing noise, i started to poke about inside with my trusty screw-driver and quickly ended flying to the other side of the room as it was still plugged into the mains...

    I’ve always been a smart a** but even worse in my younger days. When I was in a motorcycle group in Detroit, we decided to go across the border to Canada for a little cruise. It also was my birthday and my girlfriend bought me a tube that came with 3 pairs of bikini underwear, one was the color red. I also had those on that day. Anyway, we had a bad day in Canada; no one wanted to serve us when we pulled into a Drive-In restaurant so we all left pissed. Coming back across the border, on the US side, customs asked if we had anything to declare. Again being a smart a** I said; “Nothing but the couch on the backseat a**hole.” For some strange reason the US customs agent didn’t like that comment too well and made all 30 of us pull over, and go inside for a strip search. My biker gang buddies weren’t too happy with me already but when they saw my nice red bikini underwear, that’s all it took. The flack from that day never died down, ever!

    Was pulled over one night and had a bag of weed sticking out of my top pocket, the cop pulled it out of my pocket and asked what it was, so I told him and then proceed to stick my hand out and ask for it back, the cop started laughing so hard, he forgot about the ticket he was giving me, went to jail though

    Years ago when I was working the afternoon shift,I would run errands in my nearby town. One morning i was in a bit of a hurry.So after running to the usual wal-mart,bank, and grocery store-everybody kept staring at me. I didn't realize it,but when I got home,I had on 2 different tennis shoes,lol
    I hope nobody recognized me that day,lol

    The first time Some frends and I were setting off
    Some Firework Mortar rockets.

    Loaded it in the tube backwards.

    Somehow made it out the tube about 1 foot.
    (Towards us I might add.)

    And then exploded.
