Two days back I went to the bank to open my new account, I filled the form and submitted it to the bank, yestreday I got a call from the bank that your address is not correct and please come to the bank and fill the correct address, I went there and found that I wrote my emailid instead of address there and the bank staff was laughing at me, I thought that it was just because I am a nerd or most of the people do this mistake.
I would like to know that if any of you have ever faced such type of problems in your life.

Yes, frequently. I was a nerd before they had a name for it.

What really gets you is when they think you are goofy and you are right.

just now I was touching/displaying my 'Security Card' to lift button
Thanks god, no one else was in lift, suddenly I realise that I am suppose to push button not to show card.

I haven't done that. Once when filling out a form for a health club I answered the question, "number to call in an emergency" with "911".

Once I copied (CTRL+C) a piece of text from my desktop and tried to paste (CTRL+V) it in my laptop. And only after 3-4 tries I realized what I'm doing

I agree. Here's the link:
