I found out the hard way that the kickstand retracts on its own if not pushed firmly forward. Its tendency is not to deploy unless pushed beyond a certain point.
I use my toe now to ensure it is fully forward before placing the bike on it. And I look down to make damn sure.
When my bike went down on the side of the road for this reason I blamed the kickstand design. Not myself.
I don't think you or the multitude of others that have experienced this are "idiots".
Don't beat yourself up!
