what was the stupidest thing you ever did when you were a kid?

the other day me and a couple of friends were really hungry and wanted to get something to eat but didn't have much money so we ordered food at a chinese place for my house
we waited 5 minutes after i called for our food then blocked our number, called back again and ordered ALOT of chinese for a different house down the road
my 2 friends went outside in the neighbor's yard and hid behind a bush so when the guy got to our house i would tell him to go around back to get the money because i didn't know how to unlock our front door
then they sneaked up to the car while he was at the back of my house and took the chinese food that we ordered for the other place down the road

how about you guys what was one of the stupidest things you have ever done

Hmm. I think the statute of limitations hasn't expired on my stupid activities as a teenager. I may have ot get back to you on that.

BTW, good story. :lol: A friend of mine and I used to order pizza all the time. Whenever we were at his house though, he would open the door, grab the pizza and slam the door in the guy's face without paying. The guy would ring the doorbell, pound on the door, but, eventually he would just leave. :lol: On the rare occasion that they would call back, we simply told them we paid cash and to take it up with their driver. :lol:

Ahhhh, the great Chinese Food Caper of '06. :lol:

Doing stupid things when you are a kid are part of growing up. Fortunately for me, those acts have been made moot by the Statute of Limitations. Yours have not.

I don't know how wise it is to talk about a unsolved crime on a public forum, bro. :wink:

I have done many stupid things. Here is one that I am in no way proud of. Late one night when I was in the eigth grade I stole a stop sign from the post in the road. 2 hours later there was an accident at that intersection. No-one was injured thank goodness, I threw the sign in the woods the next day and never said a word. That was pretty stupid and lesson learned.

"attempted to run over a security guard at school" Only got a week suspension though.

Another case of stupidity, though fun. When I was 15, there was a girl from school that lived down the street from us who we called Pot Pie. Her dad kept alcohol in the fridge in his backyard. Most teenagers would hop the fence to get it. Not us. We were far too lazy. We took down a section of his backyard wall and walked through. Never put it back up. Pot Pie was heated.

A few years back some friends and I were playing in the snow...I decided to try to be the funny guy and I made a snowball(turns out it was more of an iceball) and when the next car came I threw it and hit some women's car window and shattered it...We took off and jumped 3 fences and laid there for about an hour while she called cops and what not and knocked on everyone's door...Luckily there were woods behind the houses and after a while I finally decided it was now or never and I took off over the back fence and through the woods as my friends followed and we got away after multiple gunshot's fired at us by nearby policemen...Jk about the last part

Ohhhh to be 13 again. :lol:

Let's see where do I start? I did a lot of vandalism and stupid stuff as a kid. I remember jumping on a Caterpillar bulldozer and grabbing the keys out of the ignition and throwing the keys over a fence with another kid. The kid ratted me out so my dad and his dad had to climb a fence in the dark and look for the keys with a flashlight. I got grounded for a month for that.

The stupidest and saddest thing I did was break up with a lady who I think was the love of my life, because I wasn't able to deal with her two kids that she had from a previous marriage. I probably would have married her if not for the kids. That was back in 1998 and I still think about her a lot :boohoo: I have had some nice relationships since then but sometimes I wish I could have gone back and given it another try. :shakeno:

between the ages of 10-12 i used to break in peoples houses throughout the neighboorhood, just to eat junk food because we didn't have any in our house. my dad ended up going to court over me, but i never got in trouble for it, i think my mother might have saved me a beating.

Ok, I just did the math, and I should be ok to share. Back when I was a wee lad, some friends and I used to go out to construction sites with crowbars and smash in all the windows they had just set into the new houses. Well, one night, we saw an unlocked work truck sitting there. We decided it owuld be fun to hotwire, joyride and leave it somewhere else on thejobsite to confuse the owner. Mind you, this is all at night, no one was there.

So, we couldn't get the dern thing to start, but we did pop it in neutral. So the ofur of us are pushing this worktruck fille dwith tools down this street. We didn't realize that the street started to slope. Again, it was at night. So the truck starts picking up steam and we aren't going to be able to keep up. So, one o fmy friends reaches in, turns the wheel so that the truck will hit the curb and hopefully slow down, if not stop.

We let go and kind of watch as it HOPS the curb and heads straight for a streetlamp. We figured the truck would hit and stop so we started to jog away, keeping an eye on the renegade truck. Well, as it turned out, Streetlamps aren't very strong because the truck crashed into it, completely knocked it over and continued to mosey on down into the frame of a new house.

Needless to say, we did not go back to that site ever again.

We also used to take potatoes, apples and pumpkins (when Halloween was around) and throw them at cars while hanging out the windows. Pumpkins can do A TON of damage when used properly. We actually uprooted an entire mailbox and post with one jack-o' lantern.

My favorite though, was one night, we were wlaking (same group of friends) and we saw the tool... (the wrench used to open up fire hydrants, we simply called it, "The Tool."). We had tons of fun with that. I don't think there was a fire hydrant within a 25 mile radius that wasn't open up to allow water to go everywhere. We would usually hide and wait for the truck to show up and turn them off. :lol: Believe it or not, you can do a lot of damaged with pressurized water as well. :rofl:

Well, for me I guess the stupidest thing I ever done was when me and one of my friends would shoot bottle rockets at cars from his front lawn (which was above the highway). I remember two instances when one bottle rocket hit a cop car and the cop flashed the lights and drove by the area a few times, and the other incident was when one bottle rocket had put a black streak on the back of a truck and the owner came and complained to my friend's older brother. Thinking back on it now it was pretty stupid because if someone had of had a window down the bottle rocket could've went in their vehicle and caused them to wreck and hurt or kill themselves, pretty stupid indeed. We also had battle rocket wars where we would shoot bottle rockets at each other, ah those were the days.

Being that I am temporarily in the food delivery business, if anyone tried to pull that one me I would have pepper sprayed them, broke an arm and called the police. Aside from that, I always lock my doors when I cant see the car.


Stupid things... One time I really needed money so I bet a group of friends I would do a flip off the bridge over the boynton inlet while the tide was going out and there were school of sharks reported everywhere. I have been jumping off that bridge and having the tide carry me right to the docks at the inlet for years; this was the first time I let it carry me out. It went well until just before I got into the ocean. I did the flip, no problem, landed perfectly, kept myself above watter and sure enough had an easy four hunderd dollars waiting for me. Then, a wave crashed down, dragging me under and into the coral barrier. It ripped my side open and required 17 stitches. I would have climbed up onto the barrier and had my friends waiting on the jetty pull me up but it was way too rough and besides, I would have lost the bet. The tide took me out about a quarter a mile off the beach. Luckily the ocean was no where near as bad as the inlet. It was a leisurly swim to the beach. That is until I realized there were Palm Beach Conunty Sherrifs waiting for me. I did win the money though.

17 stitches? Ouch. I suppose it is to be assumed that those sharks weren't actually there no?

well there were a few.

In Middle School and High School My siste would always have her friends over, 90% of them were HOT, Smoking HOT. Well I would always tell them that I would teach them to fight if they wanted to (I was always getting into fights at school so I had a rep for it) . I would tell them how to defende them selfs against guys, so I would take them into my room for some role playing and one thing led to another and hormones took over and /start porn music.

well one day I forgot that in a fight with my sister I had bust my lock and could not lock my door, and while I was "teaching" a girl how to defend herself, in comes my mom to my room while Im in full stride.

I just asked her to close the door and she did and I fishied but dam did I get a butt whooping afterwards. I was never allowed home while my sister had friends.

I am sure the cops would love that you pepper sprayed and broke a kid's arm.

Actually a coworker was involved in such an incident. He actually used mace, which as far as I know is illegal in the state of Florida. He smacked the kids head against the car and called the police. They said he was protecting his job and property. If I am on a delivery and the food gets stolen out of my car I lose my job; weather I am working or not, if I see some kid trying to get into my car I will do everything I can to "incapacitate" them until the police arive.

The shark never showed up in my story, though there were reports that there were large schools of sharks in the area. I like sharks anyways

The way I see it, if you are dumb enough to fall for that trick ("I don't know how to unlock my door, go around back"), you deserve to get ripped off and lose your job. And mocked. Severely mocked.

Oh, and if you break a kid's arm, you are tough.

I dont know who would fall for that, I am talking a general scenario where someone is going to try and take food out of my car. I am not trying to sound tough, if I was I would say I would pull my switch blade out my pocket and gut the kid on the sidewalk. I am not understanding the hostility, Gonzo:confused:

Not hostility, just think it's funny that you would break a kid's arm for doing what kids do. Well, saying you would anyways... Part of being an adult is handling it like an adult. Pepper spraying and beating up a kid is pretty weak. Nothing personal, because I don't think you would actually do it.

You have a pretty messed up job man. You're like a freakin' sacrificial lamb.

A pizza guy got murdered here about a year back by a group of 14 year old kids. They all got off because they were considered too young. The pizza guy was like a 19 year old asian dude. Messed up.

Wait, wait, wait. By kids, what do you mean? After checking the origional poster in this thread, there is no way I would lay a hand on a 13 year old kid. If thats what you are talking about, you are right, I would not do anything like that.

Alright... I did a ton of stupid things.

When I was about 13 my parents lived in a small town in North Miami... there was NOTHING to do... NOTHING. My friend and I were up walking around the neighborhood around 2 am and thought how fun South Beach would be at 2 am. So... we were thinking...

I ended up grabbing my mom's keys (Honda V6). We didn't want to turn the car on... as the car was right next to my parent's room. So, I put it in neutral then made my other friend push the car until we got far enough away. We then turned the car on and drove off. We would later return around 5:30... we would make sure the tank was full with gas and all.

We did this about 10 times. We then tried to be a bit more slick. My friend took his car and I took my moms. My friend, a true idiot, was speeding like 40 over in a residential. He got pulled over. He called me up and told me that he was pulled over and go home ASAP. I made it home... but by then his dad called my mom.

My mom went crazy....

Then the best part...

My mom calls my dad to tell him about the story. He then tells my mom "Well, it must run in the family... I did the same thing when I was his age... except I hit someone. We're lucky he's OK."

Naturally, my dad said don't do it again, etc... but he later asked if I had a good time.

Ahhh... I miss my dad. Whenever I did something stupid, he would make me feel better as he always did the same thing.
