In college in a tourist town (Williamsburg, Virginia), we were always being asked for directions. Sometimes, we told people to "go down Jamestown Road until it ends, get on the ferry and when you get to the other side of the river, keep going another couple of miles. You can't miss it" when they were going the other way.

My phone number used to be very close to that of a local higher end restaurant. We got calls for them all the time. After a while, instead of giving them the correct number, I just went ahead and told them "OK, we have you down for 7 pm, see you then!"

Sigh....

Okay. When i was in college the first time ('92 - '94) i participated in a drive by shooting. With paintball guns. There was a kid who was constantly ratting my room-mates and i for everything that we did. So one night when he went to walk to the college from the dorms, we loaded the paintball guns and jumped in the Jeep. We circled the block a few times and gave him dirty looks. He changed his route. We caught up with him and as soon as he saw us we opened up on him. I think that he thought that we had actual guns.

There it is! Worst thing i feel i've ever done....

We always get calls from Verizon Business here at work. The last time they called this is how it went.
Me: "Good afternoon, ECS"
Caller: "Hello, this is Verizon Business calling. May I speak to the person in charge of making your business phone decisions?"
Me: "We don't have a phone."
Caller: [moment of dead silence] "You don't have a phone????"
Me: "Nope."
Caller: "Then what do you use??"
Me: "Two tin cans with a string."
Caller: "o.k., may I have your name?"
Me: "No"
Caller: "Thank You."

When he was in college one of his friends turned 21. Most of his friends took the guy out to get him good and hammered, while 2 stayed behind "to study." So while they are out getting this guy as drunk as possible, the 2 stragglers go to his dorm, which has that fake wood paneling that was so popular in the late 70's early 80's, where it's one big thin sheet of wall covering like 10foot square or whatever. Anyway they take the frame off the baseboard and from around his door, take the doorknob off completely, and remove that whole section of wall. Because this fake wood crap is so cheap and people damage it all the time, there was a maintenence closet with replacement pieces, and they took out a brand-new piece and covered the door to his room, making it look just like a hallway wall. They even had a replacement piece of baseboard.

So this poor dude stumbles home that night, drunk out of his mind, and his dorm room is just gone. :drunk:

I think he said they found him the next morning asleep in the hall. Apparently he just assumed he was too drunk to find his room, but he knew it was supposed to be near the guy across the hall from him lol.

We did something similar when I was in the Army, One guy came into the barrack blind drunk, and when he went to the john we picked up his bed and took off with it, hid it in the shower. He came back and just wandered around where it was supposed to be mumbling "I don't understand" in this thick Egyptian accent he had. Good times.

Ubi Dubius was just down Gruber Road from you in the 18th Airborne Corps Artillery. They thoughtfully didn't have any wars during his time either. I wonder if you were there at the same time?

I was in the 6th Neath Scouts and they didn't have any wars during my time either...didn't even tie any decent knots!

I never did learn how to tie a horsehitch. On the other hand I've found that a number of reef knots lashed together into a hideous mess will tie most things down :guilty:
