Default *Facepalm*

After having a smoke with a co-worker she saw me refilling my water bottle.

Co-worker: "Don't reuse your bottles! That is so unhealthy for you!"
Me: *Facepalm*

Outside of a bar talking beer history and general beer geek-age.

Patron: "Humans were boiling the water to make it sanitary then they decided to make it taste better so they added barley. Eventually they realized hop oils added alcohol."
Me: *Facepalm*

It's the telephone game. Only, played out in real life.

LOL

I go camping a lot, and was looking up really warm down comforters to use instead of sleeping bags. Most of the reviews for the extra-warm ones had a line like this:
Reviewer: "Too warm to use in the summer, but I just blast the A/C on high."
Me: *Facepalm*

Must be my wife's ex. It has to be 80F before she's warm enough, so the bed is piled with covers. I have trouble getting to sleep if it's much over 70F. Then about 2 a.m., she gets over-heated and I get cold.

Because of possible bacteria in your used water bottle. Yeah, I've heard that one too. But if you recycle it you're wasting energy required to recycle, and if you throw it out, you're Hitler reincarnated.

I saw a guy come into the office who works in the field all day and he took his empty water bottle and put it right up to the water cooler spigot and filled it up. Discusting IMO, he had his mouth on that bottle all day and now he is putting it up to (with the spigot inside his water bottle) the same spigot the rest of us need to get out drinking water from. After that day I never got water from there again. They all probably do it. I told him I didn't like it, he kind of blew me off (wait....what did I just say??) lol

A store clerk once told me that Pig's Ass Porter "Has chocolate hops in it."
Of course I felt the need to politely inform her of her error & explain a few things about chocolate, hops & beer.
Regards, GF.

Um can you say double fascepalm? AFTER HAVING A SMOKE blah blah blah THAT IS SO UNHEALTHY.

Nothing against somking (I did for 10 years) but seriously after inhaling tar and concentrated carcinogens, she tells you refilling a bottle is unhealthy?

Thats like a guy driving a Humvee telling you to accelerate slower to conserve gas.
