The feeling of excitement that rushes over you when you get a text from your lover has to be one of the greatest feelings in the world. Unfortunately, you can get too excited about something, and when that happens, the results end up being disastrous. This guy finished his first Field Training Exercise, after being in the field for four days with little sleep and no shower. When they finally had a chance to shower, it just so happened to be the same day he received a letter in the mail from the love of his life. He couldn’t contain his excitement and thought the best plan was to read the letter while he showered, so he could both shower and use the light at the same time, which goes off at 9 PM.
On his way to the shower, he decided that kicking open the door was a great idea. The next thing he knows, his friend is standing over him, puking. It turns out that because of the way he hit the door frame, he’d peeled back a chunk of his scalp. He tasted spinal fluid in his mouth, and his head was gushing blood. He ended up in the ER and never got to shower or read the letter. This is a story for the books and has to be one of the biggest fails of all time. This guy learned his lesson about good ideas, and, needless to say, will never make the same mistake again (via The Brainy Penny).
