    I Shot Myself With a Rubber Band...

    More than once I have shot myself with a rubber band. When my brother and I were younger, we use to shoot them back and forth to each other, and often times, I would shoot myself instead of him, which totally sucked! But hey, you live and learn! BroknWings

    ROFLMAO

    The guys are outside my office yelling, cussing etc. So being bored I'm sitting here trying to hit them with rubber bands. I'm aiming for my boss and missing over and over again when suddenly one back fires and "WHAP" I get it right in the chin. LOL   I did...

    It Was a Set-up!

    Several years ago I was at my desk taking lunch at work with some co-workers and customers nearby. I'd gotten a 1/3 lb bacon cheese burger with the works.  I took a bite and something wasn't right. It was as if I'd bitten into a tough piece of gristle or a really...

    I Didn't Know How

    For the longest time, I couldn't figure out how to hit people with a rubber band. You know, when you have it around two fingers and then you take one part and snap it against someone's leg or arm? Well, I could never  figure out how to get back at my friends for hitting me...

    I Can Only Shoot Myself

    I have tried on numerous occasions to shoot someone from behind with a rubber band but I ALWAYS end up shooting my thumb or at myself.... It's usually by the third time I am successful... It's just like when I was into archery, I would twang my hand with the bow a few...

    I don't get embarrassed often, but it's so annoying. I embarrassed myself with my own emotions by being "overemotional." I know it's honesty, but it runs others off.
