Sometimes it can be instructive to make fun of yourself. What were your most memorable gullible moments? I can think of three: 1. In middle school a rumor went around that surplus WWII Harley Davidson motor cycles were available for $50. I spent weeks fantasizing about the customization I was going to do. 2. After a couple of years in my first job I asked my manager if I could get an overseas assignment. He said 'should be no problem'. I immediately enrolled in a language class (already in session) at the local community college and attended for several weeks before realizing that nothing was going to happen. 3. I was attracted to a co-worker and asked her to lunch. She couldn't that day but said she'd 'swing by' for lunch soon. I went for weeks with excited anticipation but lunch never happened.
