Lit up a AF Shark that was MAW'd to me and it started to rain. I was so pissed that it got wet and I wasn't able to enjoy more than 15 minutes of it.

Dumb question and chances are after I find out I will be like DOH! but what does CoRo stand for?
I have done the not paying attention because I was enjoying a cigar while doing a project and put the ash end in my mouth. Horrible! Other than that I have had a cigar or two roll off the table out on the patio and hit the ground and pretty much explode. Amazing how my luck always makes sure it hit the ground head first.

I've stepped on a couple of cigars. Usually while golfing or doing yard work. Dropped one in the car before too. Not fun. When I run errands with my cigar I often leave it on the running board of my Tahoe while I run in to the store/office/etc. Once I forgot it was there until I was 1/2 mile down the road. The cigar wasn't there anymore.

Let's see...left a bag of Padron #9's and two Zino Emperor Edition 2010s on the hood of my truck and took off. Never saw them again. Lost a nice Xikar cutter too.

Ruined more than my fair share of clothing with losing the ash...now I tap it off more regularly.

Washed a few cigars in cargo shorts.

Lost a bag under the seat of my truck. Fast forward a year later and I found them...shredded as they were by the seat rails.

Gave someone a nice cigar and watched them smoke an inch and throw it out.

Watched that same person pick the leftover up later and relight it.

Took a puff to be polite.

Fell asleep with a smoke in my hand and burned my leg about an inch from the family jewels.

Yeah I'm not too bright.

I gave one of my friends a OpusX "Love Afair," cause she never had one & she's a beginner... So as we're working at JR's (in the cigar store) i told her to not worry about the ash trays... well she was starting to enjoy it and as she was cleaning the last ash tray she dropped it in the ash tray, with kitty litter. I was laughing my tail off, it was so funny...

I was enjoying a Hoyo De Nic A. Grand Reserva, and I ask my buddy if she wanted to taste a good medium-full bodied cigar (note: she is a beginner) ...So she says okay, well she took two puffs and said she liked it, so i say "exhale out of your nose, to get a little more flavor." So she trys and half-inhales it, she started to caugh her lungs out so i walk away with my cigar laughin my ace off... customers we're asking if she was okay...

Default Re: Cigar mishaps and the like...

Last thanksgiving we took the trailer up to the mountains (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October)

When I was setting up the trailer I checked the forecast and it was going to be cold, I hummed and hawwed about the whole thing and in the end decided that the trailer would stay warm enough that the lines wouldn't freeze so I loaded up all the tanks and away we went.

So the forecast was wrong and it was more than a bit cold, in fact it never got over -7 so sure enough everything freezes up. Black water drain (from the shitter), Grey water drain (from the sinks) and the fresh water tank drain lines. Perfect


So I MacGuyver up a set up, put the Coleman lantern under the trailer, and use about a mile of tinfoil to make a shroud around the pipes, two hours later I have success and get the black and grey tanks empty, quick shower and head home.

Well now everything freezes up again. Just great.

So the next day it looks like it is going to warm up enough to work on it and get it fully winterized (drain all the lines and tanks and fill with RV Antifreeze). Now my main fresh tank drain line is frozen and I figure since it is far under the trailer I will give it some help with a space heater. I get it all set up, no problem back in the house. I go out to work on it, figure might as well have a cigar.........grab a Cohiba Siglo I and off I go.

Great smoke, enjoying it............but only get to smoke half. Why you say............bad burn, nope.......plugged, nope.........

As I am working the line I grab a wrench and go to take out the plug, in the process I knock half the heater off on my chest. phuck, I am lying in a pool of ethanol with a heater on my chest.............what happens I panic thinking I am about to burst into flames... take a deep breath..........phuck me the cigar is still in my yap and I get a lung full of smoke. That freaks me out more, I sit up...........oh crap I am under the trailer WHAM right on the forehead...........now I am rolling out from under the trailer in the ethanol, wet snow........oh ya and the grey water that I drained out of the tank earlier coughing my brains out and my wrist is burnt where I rubbed the heater off, and a lump on my head.

Stand up, I have a half crushed Sig I in my teeth, I am wet and cold, I smell like a sewer and ethanol cocktail, my head is pounding and my wrist is burnt, and my lungs feel like I doused them in gasoline and lit a match.

42 years old and all I could think was...............I want my mom


I like to think I am a somewhat smart individual, that day I thought maybe Darwin missed me in the whole evolution thing.

Does that qualify as a cigar mishap?

RAGE. This has happened to me a lot. Here's how it normally goes down: my roommate has a party or a barbecue, he gets 7 or 8 beers in him and wants a cigar. He keeps a few singles in my humi so we both go up to the room to grab one. Somehow we acquire leeches along the way. I want to stress this--I am more than willing to share. If we're having a party at the house I think it's part of my job to be gracious, but really it's more than obligation, it's just good character to share.

And for some reason these people always end up not realizing that a cigar lasts much longer than a cigarette. And I think they also don't realize that we're not smoking swishers--these aren't fifty cents apiece!

Sounds like it might be worth it to have some inexpensive (but decent), short cigars on hand for these occasions...

I thought I lost my Xikar cutter (my very first cutter ever). The following week I bought another one. Then my friend call me and told me he found my cutter.

For some reason I decide to light up a Padron 1926 when I was sick and on empty stomach no less. It wasn't a fun experience and I had to end the smoke shortly (still kicking myself for that).

A guy at my favorite B&M gave me couple of Davidoff cigars, put it in my pocket and completely forgot about it. The next day I discover two crush cigars...

I got together with a bunch of friends. My buddy and I decide to smoke a cigar by the lake. A flying Frisbee pwned me in the face and the cigar dropped in the lake. This is probably my most weird mishap thus far.

This is why I have always made it a habit to never ever put cigars in any pocket whether it's the top pocket of a dress short, cargo pocket or even a jacket pocket. I even get nervous putting a cigar in the inside pocket of a suit jacket.

Reasons I always keep a fully stocked and unlocked MOOCH humidor on my desk. I always say "Take whatever you want" and walk the humidor into an open area. LOL


So far for me the biggest mishap is putting the wrong end in my mouth.

I always say you have been smoking(and drinking) long enough if you haven't done that at least once!

I buy Robusto bundles at my B&M for that exact same reason. That and they are my daily smokes.

Anyways, beginner cigar smokers aren't going to tell the difference in nuances that would make a 5 dollar cigar a 20 dollar cigar. Finally, they're unbanded, so I don't have to worry about them thinking how much it cost (not much).

I thought that guy lived near here???

Anyway, my worst mistake was putting away some singles in my desktop humi. I have a top shelf like most for singles. I had put a few too many on it and when I went to shut the lid I kinda forgot to make sure they were all the way inside. I ended up smashing the head & cap of a Mag 50. It split open like a squished grape.

My common mistake seems to be ashing into my drink. I can't tell you how many times I've dumped out a 1/2 to 3/4 full drink thanks to my carelessness.

I have also lit the wrong end once or twice. Both times being a perfecto that I cut, then set down before lighting. The band had slid off so it was tough to tell, until I later realized my mistake.

Ahhh the memories! I believe he ran over to Vin, took Vins case from me after I had taken a very gracious offering from within and then harassed Vin for the next 30 minutes! Is it March yet?
