16 people share the most bizarre 'brain autopilot misfire' they've ever experienced.


Driving down the highway and suddenly wondering how long you've actually been in the car, realizing you're holding a giant bag of laundry you don't remember picking up, or drinking from a glass that's definitely not water--the human brain is a complicated vortex...

So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What is the most bizarre thing you've caught yourself doing after your brain's autopilot misfired?' people were ready to share the weird, hilarious, or most confusing examples of 'how did I get in this room?'


Painting a picture, take a drink from the paint brush water instead of my coffee. - Lympwing2


The night before my very first day at work where I have to bring my own lunch. I got all the ingredients out to make my sandwich for tomorrow and immediately after I made it I walked into the living room turned on the tv and ate it. - Sonicman1223


Was jogging late at night. A guy reached out his hand in front of me as I passed. I high-fived him. Turns out he was hailing a taxi. - Derped_my_pants


As a teenager, I worked at McDonald's. My McDonald's was 24 hours and, during the summer, I worked the overnight shift. My sleep schedule would get all messed up. My parents woke me up for dinner one evening. I zombie walked to the table and sat down. My dad asked me to say grace. I bow my head and say, 'thank you for choosing McDonald's, may I take your order?' - arndta


When I was in high school and living on the family farm, I used to feed the horses and barn cats every morning. Waking up at 6am for this as a 16 year old guaranteed that I was half asleep. So, I grabbed the cat food like I always did, walked to the table where my cat's bowl was like I always did, and poured some in.

My cat always jumped up on the table right away to start eating right away, and one morning as something jumped up in front of me I absentmindedly pet it as usual. The hair felt a little rough so I looked down and instead of my friendly orange cat, there was a skunk. Just chilling there eating the cat food while I pet its back. - danseaman6


I meant to put a brand new roll of toilet paper on the roll and instead just plopped it in the toilet. - [deleted]


I had a very long day of computer drafting, think +12 hours sitting and staring at .5mm lines, and got really lost so I asked the person next to me what the hell I did wrong because they seemed like they would absolutely have the explanation. I got most of the way through the answer before I realized not only had I asked my frazzled reflection a question, but I also calmly and matter-of-factly responded. I went home after that. - voixdetonnerre


Applying deodorant on my armpit with my shirt still on. - bits_of_paper


Rubbed aftershave in my hair and put gel on my face. The worst part was that after I put the aftershave in my hair, I laughed at myself, thought, 'F*ck, what was all that about?' and then added the hair gel to my skin. - MisterEvilBreakfast


The two that come to mind are while playing XBOX I got up to get a drink, then sit back down and can't find my freaking controller. I'm tearing cushions apart, looking under stuff, looking in drawers, etc. Turns out I took a soda out of the fridge and put the controller in the spot I took it from.

The other one happened the other day. Drove home from work, parked, went upstairs, opened the door, started to take off shirt. Then I remembered it was the middle of my shift and I hadn't left to go home, but just go buy a drink. - KMApok


I once got my car impounded via brain-autopilot. I lived across the street from a gas station and didn't drive very often. Once I was filling it up, went inside to buy something, forgot I was getting gas, and walked home.

A few days later I reported my car stolen since I couldn't find it in the apartment garage. About a month later I get a call from the police, saying my car had gone up for auction and only then was it discovered it had been reported stolen. I had to pay about $1500 in impound fees to get it back. Definitely one of the dumbest things I've ever done. - ungulate


Last night I picked up a box of cereal to put it away. I ended up accidentally taking it with me to bed. - BuffyandtheHellcats


Swished my mouthwash for a solid 30 seconds and then just spit it on the floor where I was standing. - popcornpause


When I was around 13 or 14 I woke up in the middle of the night, in my own bed and room, and thought to myself: I need to go home before my parents realize I'm not home. So I sneak out of the house, part of me obviously aware that my parents were sleeping and I needed to be quiet, and walked a block away. Then I realized I had been in my own room and just thought what the hell am I doing. So I walked back and snuck back into bed. So weird - marleylovestrees


I was getting ready for work and had a contact in one hand and a vitamin in the other. Popped the contact in my mouth and washed it down with a glass of water. I'm sure the stomach acid took care of it. - [deleted]


Vigorously picking my nose while holding a cigarette and driving; crammed lit cigarette up my nose. - [deleted]
