People's Most Incriminating "It's Not What It Looks Like" Moments

Mistaken intent and serious misjudgment can be a real monkey on our backs. Sometimes it feels like we're all working just to prove to other people that we're not horrible creeps, thieves or morons. Most times it's easy to not look like a lascivious rabble-rouser. But sometimes you're caught in a vulnerable position bending over to grab a pen cap and there's just no convincing your coworkers that you weren't just trying to smell your boss's chair. What can you do. Here are some times people proved they weren't the dumb one, or for some more foibles, bold and mistaken customers who were at the wrong store.

More often than not, the more ready someone is to call someone else an idiot, the higher chance they themselves are the true moron. People will double down and say some wildly dumb things, but rarely do we get to prove these people wrong. It's at least a little nice to challenge the absurd things people say in complete seriousness.
