Forums - General Discussion - I can't believe how dumb I am


Hey, guys and girls from VG Chartz.

Well, today as a day like any other, except that it could rain anytime. So, I was going with my mom to a registry, since I just purchased my first car (yay, I can drive).

We were walking a busy street when we found ourselves in front of a bar. There were some guys drinking beer and watching TV, a very ordinary scene. However, what caught my attention was the sidewalk of the bar. I found a shiny coin there. A coin like the one you see above.

It was a R$ 1,00 coin, so I thought "Sure, why not?" Then I reached out to grab the delicious coin. When I found out that the coin was glued to the ground...

At that moment I heard a lot of laughs coming from the bar. One of the guys said "Look, he tried to grab it!" Well, the classic prank had worked, so I just said "Man, what a stupid thing to do..." and walked away. My mom noticed I was behind her and asked "What happened? Why did you stop back there?" Then I answered "I fell for the coin prank." She said "So that's why I heard the laughs at the bar..."

Well, that was not a crude joke, so we just had a laugh at myself.

So, this is it, guys. Be careful when you see a shiny coin in the street. The classic pranks are still going on.

At least they didn't record it and put you on Youtube, right?

Could be worse, today I had to crawl in through the back of my car to unlock my door because I locked myself out, and people saw my big ol' butt trying to crawl in through the back and I saw some of them laugh.

At least you didn't get shit dollar'd.

Just go back with a pry bar and hammer and still pick it up. avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

They only laugh if you don't break ths ground to take it all out.
Next time come back with a crowbar and a hammer and let's see who'll be laughing.

The classic.

I got caught trying to pick up a quarter once as a kid.

If it happened today, I'd come back with a chisel and take it.

im somewhat of a coin collector, or at the very least i do enjoy finding uncommon coins, foreign coins, etc., but this just seems like a dumb prank. i see coins carelessly discarded on floors and sidewalks all the time, and more often than not i pick them up, because why not? but what is actually the point of a prank like this? "haha you thought that an extremely common thing just happened, but it didnt"

Why would you try and pick up a coin on the street? Some homeless guy has probably pissed on it already, why do you want to touch homeless piss?
