Things you've done to skirt your way out of trouble.
 
...........?..........

My whole life? Hard to figure how to narrow it down beyond that.

However, I do highly recommend owning a smoke machine.

skirt? This thread is biased against men. :eek:

Aside for a few years while in college, I have been very careful about not letting myself relinquish control of my actions.

Fifty years, zero broken bones - I feel somewhat successful.

I am presently dealing with someone's Smoke Machine and it sucks. Some folks have lying down to an art. They wear people down with it to get their way.

Liars suck. I, however, was talking about an actual smoke machine. A machine that makes smoke. If no one can ever see clearly, they can't clearly see what I am doing.

If the cop didn't see it, I didn't do it.

Siu Blue Wind 09-28-09 08:11 PM

I told the truth.

I got pulled over for "switching lanes without signaling and driving erratically". When asked why I was doing that I told the cop that I was racing that frikken Mustang that just got away because he pulled me over.

He got a kick out of that and told me it was safer to race at the Ocean Beach Strip after 10pm.

jgedwa 09-28-09 08:13 PM

Wait. Lying to cops counts? Oh man. Then I am a huge liar.

You may be in luck, as it just so happens, the old Indian friend that I was using my machine to send text messages to, is no longer in my circle, so I have one I'll sell ya, for cheap.

Ya might want to wash the little nozzle tip on the end of the bellows thing, though. Just sayin...

You know, back in my younger days, I found that if I told the baldfaced truth and appeared to be contrite and willing to accept the consequences, I could unsling my fanny. It worked many times.

If I told you, I'd have to kill you. Or, at the very least, toss you into a giant vat of skin lotion and give you a chance to not soften to death.

Its Monday. People are too busy nursing their weekend hangovers to be witty.

Although a true friend is someone who says, when you finally get sprung from a Mexican jail, "Hey, that was fun. Let's do that next year!"

I got in a high speed police chase and was able to talk it down to a blown out tail light.

jgedwa 09-28-09 09:30 PM

Wise man say: scared kid will always beat cop in a footrace.

Cars are a handicap. Bikes are okay. But, your feet can solve lots of life's problems.

Dannihilator 09-28-09 11:02 PM

BTW I was kidding.

For me, skirts have been nothing but trouble.

Snicklefritz 09-29-09 12:10 AM

I got pulled over on I5 as I was driving to visit my boyfriend. The conversation went something like this:

CHP officer: Do you know why I pulled you over?
Me: no sir. I was just keeping my eyes on the road and going with the flow of traffic
CHP: no you weren't! I clocked the ambulance doing 80 and you caught it. You were pulling the pack!

[he goes back to his car to do who knows what...meanwhile I'm doing the math and thinking if the ambulance was doing 80 and I caught it then how fast was I going?? Oh no. This is going to be expensive. Officer comes back a few minutes later. I look and see that he isn't wearing a ring on the left hand, so I figure maybe I have a chance here...]

Me: officer, can I ask for a discount on this ticket for having attended the citizen's policy academy in my town?
CHP: [gruff voice] there's no such thing as a discount.
me: [oh no! is he mad???]
CHP: but I'll tell you what I'll do. I will write down that you were doing 80 mph instead of what you were actually doing.
Me: what will that mean?
CHP: It means you can do traffic school instead of paying a $350 fine.
Me: Awesome! Thank you officer.

I don't skirt my way out of trouble. I pants my way out of trouble. Think about it. If a person is going to yell at you, and you pants them before they can do it, you're pretty much going to leave them speechless.

I broke a piece on a display item back when I worked in retail for a summer. I went to the nearest hardware store on my lunch break to get parts to fix it.

Actually, in retrospect I doubt I would have been in trouble had I just admitted what happened, but I'd specifically asked to prepare the display because I was new and I wanted to show I was a gung ho and capable. I was horrified that I'd screwed up. As is, I was admonished for taking so long to get the display ready (mainly to fix the damage).

I hid in a tree. For 14 hours.

I was 8 when I did that.

Face transplant, tooth exchange and finger tip removal

Chacal 09-29-09 08:29 AM

Lied like a rug

came clean and copped to what I did

ran like hell

hid in the woods

blamed someone else

etc etc it all depends on the situation

My favorite - and this has worked several times - is when confronting someone who is incensed for whatever reason and wants to kick your ass, you just smile and put your hand on their arm and swiftly charm the snot out of them. I don't know why, but this always seems to work.
