    I Once Did a Big "No-no"

    So this was back in 2001 and I was working in a grocery store. They had some kind of small generator that was put in for the whole Y2K thingy that everyone was freaking out about way back then. So I was with someone walking by it and I don't remember exactly who or how it...

    One Group That Has Gottem Me Into More Trouble

    As a kid I have been in more trouble from just that one sentence.  "I love to push buttons" If I go to toy stores you can track me by the noises coming from the toys.  If I am in a science center I am making things move or trying to figure out how they work...

    Especially If It Says 'don't Push This Button!'

    There was this button in the office I used to work in that had a sign next to it saying 'do not push this button'.  I was so tempted to push it because I wanted to know what would happen.  At a later time facilities installed a cover over it so no one could touch or...

    Oops

    The weight room in my high school used to be an old automotive classroom so dangerous machinery was used in there. There is a big red button on the wall that says "automatic power shut off", who would've thought that this button would work after 20years? Needless to say its...

    Special Touch

    I can't help it ..... if I am waiting at the lights, I have to push the button, over and over and over again. I know it won't make the light change faster but I do so enjoy it! It is a sense of power, misguided, but power none the less. Feeling as if I am...

    I Can't Help It

    I work in a factory with tons of blinking buttons.  Sometimes I can't help pushing them to see if they click or beep or honk, even if I don't know their function.  I am wary of the red ones though since the last one I pushed shut down all the machines.  I told...

    Ooooo

    I'm such a button pusher. You've got to keep me away from Toy Stores. I'll end up pushing all the "Try me" buttons that I can push. The more obnoxious the toy, the better.
