Taryn Suffers A Doh! Moment

On her Facebook wall, Taryn Hecker-Thompson writes of a recent "Doh!" moment: "I had a hankering for an Orange Cream Slush and while I was waiting at the drive thru window saw a garbage can along the curb and decided to gather up my trash. (Anyone who knows me knows I NEVER clean the trash out of my car) I put the garbage in a McDonald's bag, but apparently tossed my wallet on top of the bag when I was done paying, and threw it away with the trash. It wasn't until the next day when I realized my wallet was gone, remembered that the trash seemed heavy and it all clicked I was most worried about losing my fishing license, but I called Fish and Game and found out I can get a replacement -- and that will be lots easier than replacing my driver's license and social security card."

Question: When did you last suffer a "Doh!" moment, as we all do?
