A conversation with my wife last night about some of our past financial blunders brought us some good hard laughs. I wonder if you have any humorous (or semi-humorous) stories you?d care to share? Success stories are welcome too.

Here?s one of our financial Darwinian stories.

Several years ago we were on a vacation that was to take us to a few U.S. cities. Early one morning while in our hotel room packing for an afternoon flight to a new city I placed $800 in cash into an envelope and handed it to my wife as spending money. Later that evening after arriving at the hotel of our new destination she told me she needed some cash because she was ?a little low.? As it turned out she thought the envelope I handed her earlier that morning contained a tip for the cleaning staff at our previous hotel and she left it on the desk of our room on her way out the door.
