She What?

Have you ever done something that, in hindsight, was not your best choice? I'm not talking about a "Wow, I could have had a V-8" moment, I'm talking about a "For the love of god what was I thinking?" moment.

I can only imagine what Megan Barnes from Florida was thinking when she recently (allegedly) crashed into the back of a pick up truck because she was driving while shaving-- her coochie!

Swear on Scouts honor. True story!

Ms Barnes, who at the time was driving on a suspended license had, just the day before, been convicted of driving under the influence. With her ex-husband beside her, which in and of itself raises a red flag on her judgement, she was behind the wheel with her foot on the accelerator while her Ex was steering the car.


Why you ask? Ms Barnes was busy giving her "bikini area", as the cops called it, a little freshening up, you know, a trim of the bush so to speak.

Picture that for a moment if you would....

Sitting in the driver's seat...

Cruising down the road...

With her Ex-husband...

And a sharp object close to your va-jay jay!


Yep, I'm guessing Ms Barnes, or at very least her Ex-husband will be wondering "What was I thinking?" for a very long time.

But wait, there's more.

After the crash, the crazy couple allegedly drove further down the road and changed seats (and possibly put her panties back on?). When the police arrived, the Ex was behind the wheel with a deflated airbag and not a scratch. But Ms Barnes, covered in airbag opening evidence on her face and arms, was in the passenger seat, whose airbag did not open.

Uh-oh, busted!

Why would anyone make such bad choices? Ms Barnes told police she was preparing for a date with her boyfriend. No mention was made of the Ex-husband's lame excuse.


I've made some poor choices in my lifetime and I'll probably make a few more, but there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I will never make a choice that bad.

How about you?

  2. Oh my word! What was she thinking? Or not! That is quite the story!

    ReplyDelete
  3. and all along, i thought women putting on make-up while driving was bad enough!!

    ReplyDelete
  4. i got nothing to top that...so did she cut herself when the airbag went off? oh my...

    ReplyDelete
  5. wow! that's is one thing no one should be doing while driving, I kind of feel bad for the ex, what was he thinking covering for her?

    still, it makes a great story to tell

    ReplyDelete
  6. I saw that story too! Unbelieveable!

  7. This comes under the "you can't make this stuff up" category. It was just wrong on so many levels, not to mention very dangerous to her "bikini area".

    ReplyDelete
  8. All I can say is, "EWWWWWW, Nasty!!!"

  9. Hubby and I were chuckling about this story the other day. It is especially appalling since she was in court just the previous day for the DUI. Duh!! This woman should not be behind the wheel and I hope she has her license revoked and her car permanently removed and sold at auction.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh My Gosh. I've made plenty of bad choices in my life but this hits a level I pray I never will achieve on the disgusting scale! Pretty skanky!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I read this the other day, and could not stop laughing!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm pretty sure these people were born just to make me look like a genius.

    Hugs!!

  13. This gives a whole new meaning to going on a road trip. Especially if some is asking are we there yet, are we there yet....good lord. lol Take care, thanks for the laugh. hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Someone told me about this. I thought they were joking. Eeeewwww!!! Crazy!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh no I soon will be going to bed and was hoping for sweet dreams, now I think I will be having nightmares.LOL...

  16. It's really lucky that no one died in that accident. I guess you could call it a close shave.

  17. I can't believe the things some people do!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Is there any limit to the stupid not to mention dangerous stuff people can get down to?
    What really angers me is when the lives of innocent people are affected, who have to suffer due to such stupidity, for no fault of their own.

    ReplyDelete
  19. this makes me think the world needs an isolated place (island?) to put these dumb think only of themselves people.
    I just thought of a great idea. Remember that big iceberg that broke off a few weeks ago. That's the place for them. Drop them off with some food and let them float.
    I thought texting while driving was bad.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hehe...two prime cadidates for The Darwin Awards!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I seriously can't understand the stupidity behind that one. She had to have been high on something...the ex also. I mean, what was he doing while she was shaving? Watching for the cops or a tree???

    ReplyDelete
  22. My gag reflex kicked in picturing this one.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! That's all I have....wow!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The mind boggles! Hilarious and yet scary at the same time...

    I peed on a snake once, but my excuse is that I didn't see it until afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you for a great laugh on a Thursday morning.;)
    I guess perhaps this is more than a bad choice, this must be a bad connection between the nerve endings in the brain.;) To put it mildly.;) The most stupid thing I ever did was trying to take out a stuck nail from the wall with my teeth. Yes, very dumb.;)

  26. Oh dear, I know women have to be multiskilled but she clearly is a risk taker. I am curious as to why she chose to do her personal grooming at that very time. Where was she off to I wonder with he ex husband? Odd but at least it will give many people across the wrold a great laugh. Strangely I was going to do a blog post about Brazillians - it doesnt get any better than this though.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Unbelievable!!! You can't be serious?? This really happened? OMG!!! This goes beyond "what was she thinking"!
    LOL!

  28. Ah, makes you feel proud to be part of the human race, eh? This tale is too daft to be made up (shaking my head in despair), hope the airbag shoved the razor right up where it belonged!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don´t think anyone could top THIS bad choice!! Really really stupid!

    ReplyDelete
  30. OMFG! LOL, well my mistake which would rank w/this is giving an alcoholic a second chance.. I will never ever involve myself w/a person who has an addiction...

    ReplyDelete
  31. See this is why we have Natural Selection.
    Please tell me she doesn't have any children.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Now that's an episode of COPS I'd love to see.

    ReplyDelete
  33. People never cease to amaze me!

    I've done plenty of lame brain things for which I've kicked myself in the butt later on....but I've never suffered any ramifications. I'm incredibly blessed.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I nearly choked on my coffee when I read that! I've done some (okay, lots) of stupid things, but that's just crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm just thinking that I only shaved my LEGS for a date. Clearly going about the rituals of mating ALL wrong here.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Kind of makes the whole "texting while driving" thing a non-issue, doesn't it? LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sounds like a candidate for that show "A 1000 Ways to Die"

    It never fails to amaze me the idiots I see driving down the road while putting on make-up, doing their hair, reading the newspaper or a book, and shaving (men of course). Is it really that difficult for them to get up 10 minutes earlier in the morning to get some of these things accomplished before leaving home?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Um, that's what they make salons for.

    Sheesh.

    Sheesh x 10

    Crazy people!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Now, can ya just imagine the thought process here. I think I'll go pick up my Ex so I can drive around and shave my va~jay jay! What WAS she thinking!!! Heeeheeehe! Made for a hilarious post baby!

    Enjoy this beautiful day!!!

    I'll be gigglin' all day over this!

  40. I saw that story, but you recounted it sooo much better. Yes, they walk among us... and they breed.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a moron! Seriously, what in the HECK was she thinking?! Oh, I know... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Are you sure her name was Barnes and not Miss Hilton by any chance? Sounds like something she would do! WHAT an idiot! lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm dropping another comment here. I just want to say your profile pic (avatar?) inspired me to change mine.
    I really like the colors in your little pic.
    One more think - I just read a comment of yours about FB - interesting I guess I might drop it too if I ex-related stuff going on.
    later

    ReplyDelete
  44. Isn't this just the epitome of (pardon the pun) hitting the bottom ?!?

    Sometimes I wonder how crazy/stupid humans could possibly be, and I think, "Nah, we're basically smart creatures, we are." And then I hear stories like this, and I start to wonder if we are really evolving or not...

    Thanks, btw, for you comments on my Victoria magazine essay. Really appreciate that you read it, JJ !!

    ReplyDelete
  45. HA! Now I am usually confident in my decisions.....but then I look at old photos of my ex, and I think....WWIT!

    ReplyDelete
  46. One can only guess what she was thinking?!

    ReplyDelete
  47. wow, unbelivable...Why didn't the ex drive..Maybe cause he had a beer he had to finish..

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sounds to me like that was a "you know you are a redneck when...."

    I can't think of any "I wish I hadn't....." that I can pass on
    but I loved your comments.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Where on earth do these people come from? I've made some whopper of mistakes too, but come on lady...you give us all a bad name when you do shit like that!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yep I read about that idiot woman! She's lucky she didn't do her va-ja-ja some damage!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes, I read about this story. Now if there had been a serious accident, this would have been no laughing matter.

    I've done some dumb things, but I sure would never be doing THAT. My commons sense does have it's limits.

    ReplyDelete
  52. haha! can you believe i woke up to this tidbit on the spanish morning news?...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thank you for my morning laugh. Unbelievable.. and very well written. You have a future in comedy. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh, Joanna! So awesome. So, why in the world did they tell the cop what she was doing? She could have just said she was changing the station on the radio, not changing the shape of her vjj runway... or whatever. Jeesh!

    Cheers,

  55. I have done some stupid things but this is one thing that will never happen to me!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yeah, that woman deserves to make the Darwin Awards sometime soon, doesn't she? I'm sure everyone knows about them, but for the one person whose yet to encounter them: A Darwin Award is presented to people who manage to remove themselves permanently from the gene pool in some spectacularly stupid manner.

    This was clearly just her warm exercise. She's in training, you see. Got limber up those stupidity muscles. The judges will take points off if the eventual demise doesn't have the required degree of imbecilic difficulty.

    Yup, she's in training, clearly.

    She's also just guaranteeing a shaving rash, and probably ingrown hairs too, so really, that choice is the gift that will keep on giving.

    ReplyDelete
  57. "whose yet to encounter them" should be "who's yet to encounter them". Not enough coffee yet this morning folks.

    Also, I rarely mock people for being stupid...partially because, as witnessed above, I tend to do something moronic all on my own while doing so :-)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Dear Lord! Your title just about sums it up. I never cease to be amazed by what people will do.

    One day, I was driving on a major highway at a good clip when I noticed the man passing me was reading "The Firm", at 60 mph.

    This has that beat by miles.

    To paraphrase Henry Rollins, some people are just pissing in the gene pool.

    Congratulations on a very funny potw.

  59. Oh this is a hoot and a half .. and your telling was superb .. Congrats on POTW mention from Hilary

  60. Now THAT is a poor decision. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh my...how did I miss THAT story? Love the Home Alone picture to accompany it. Priceless.

  62. Oh my gosh that's just nuts. Thanks for sharing the story, and congrats on Post of the Week!
