What's the best fail you've seen or experienced?

15 replies 83 views Edited Feb 1, 2011

There was a time that I went to Bank of America with a friend and when she put her card in an ATM machine all the ATMs got a blue screen. It was just a blue screen (now words or anything) and I busted up laughing and yelled FAIL.  Surprisingly, she got her card back and we just left the machines broken. They were blue all night and all morning. Oh and did I mention that this happened on my birthday? Haha.

ATMs don't blue screen.  They aren't designed that way.   I think the biggest fail I have experienced is the academic community.  I would like to congratulate them on their epic waste of time and resources.

Snow storm predictions here in St. Louis.

Most recent was Sunday and Monday (original predictions were correct), and they change them to smaller amounts. They changed them back to the originals early this morning

The time the Caltrain ticket machine ate the plastic coating off my credit card comes to mind. I still haven't lived that one down.

I did make a blue screen. I wish I could have taken a picture of it to show it. Even though, I thought it was funny it happened/

Alright, I got a story.  This happened back when I was still in college.  It was my Junior year, and I was living in our frat house.  I was playing games on my PC and my friend and his fiance are watching tv in our room.  He gets up to go to the bathroom.  A short while later we hear him calling "Laura! Laura!" (his fiance's name) from the hallway, followed by a loud thud.  We rush out there to find that he'd collapsed in hall coming back from the bathroom.  We call EMTs to the house, but he wakes back up just before they get there.  We're sitting down with him on the ground and he's telling the EMTs what happened.  They explain to him that what most likely happened was that he had had a nerve spasm on the toilet because he had been pushing too hard in trying to go to the bathroom.  Upon hearing this I had to recuse myself from the situation and retreat back the room.  I think they still heard me nearly crapping myself laughing though (I think one of the EMTs was laughing too).
