  3. Oh dear, I don't pride myself on being found in embarassing situations...so the only thing I can think of is the one time I was sick in the middle of the food court on my way to the bathroom. I honestly felt bad for everyone trying to eat and I felt worse for myself and I can honestly say that was very embarassing!

  5. Well, when I was little, I made a big fuss about leaving a party and flounced out the front door - only it wasn't the front door, it was a cupboard door and I even shut the door behind me before I noticed! *blush x a million*

  6. I pretty much have an embarrassing moment everyday. My latest was getting off the phone with an elderly neighbor who had called me and saying, "bye, love you." I guess I zoned out and thought I was talking to my Dad!

  7. I am already a follower, have joined Mandy's blog, and my most embarrassing moment was only 2 months ago. Being an avid crafter, i always check i don't have sewing needles or thread on my clothes, but one day i was at the post office and the lady in front glared at me, i had no idea how i had offended her, but when i got to the counter, the lady at the post office asked me if i knew i had a giant knitting needle sticking out of my right shoulder. to make it worse, i have been doing shopping all morning in my local shops with it sticking out like that and no body told me.

  9. I think I have too many embarassing moments to mention, thank goodness the senior moments are helping me to forget them! One time I was at the mall and went ahead of my friend and hid behind a post waiting for her to catch up so I could jump out and scare her. Only when I jumped out and said "BOO!!" it was a complete stranger! ACK!

  12. Hi Lynne - I currently follow both blogs - as for funny story - having such an unusual name means that you generally don't here it being called unless it's for you - when a child I responeded to my name being said/called except it wasn't any one in the family but being said in the film we were watching (where the name came from)- the 30's / 40's version of 'The Four Feathers'

  13. Embarassing moments? How to choose just one. Recently I was going to a meeting and took the elevator. Elevator stopped and I waited and waited for the door to open. Kept punching buttons and even tried going back to the first floor before starting to hyperventilate. It took a few minutes of this before I realized the door had opened - behind me! Lucky for me there was no one around to witness!

  20. I was helping to fold a flag at a funeral (over the top of the coffin). As part of the folding process, I was supposed to step forward. When I stepped forward, the funeral home had placed the Astro Turf (fake grass) to make it look like there was ground there, but there wasn't. I went into the hole up to my hip. We finished folding like nothing happened, but afterwards when everybody was leaving and making sure I was okay, I just wanted to die.

  23. I've so many embarrassing moments to chose from. I'd better go for the most recent - this morning while I was out running I said hello to someone I used to work with. Trouble was it wasn't who I thought it was, it was a complete stranger - oops.

  26. My husband is bad with names. Subsequently, he frequently fails to introduce people he knows to me when we're in public b/c he can't remember their name. We were recently at a restaurant waiting for a table when a gentleman that DH obviously knew well came up to chat. After 5 minutes I finally held out my hand and said "Hi, I'm Margie, B's wife." and he said..."yea, I know". Turns out it was a guy my husband used to worked with (for 15 years), whom I knew and I hadn't recognized him.

  30. Okay, here goes...when I was in high school, my boyfriend and I were parked on a street in his red Mustang kissing. (we were early to go to the play and just killing time, honestly, we were JUST KISSING). Well, all of a sudden we were surrounded by police cars and policemen with big guns telling us to get out of the car with our hands up! I'm thinking, man all this just for kissing? Apparently the house we were parking in front of was being robbed. Cured me from parking ever again!

  31. I am a walking embarassment....luckily my memory for these things is short, so after the 5 minutes of so of stomach lurching, I move on and forget it! One such moment was when I broke my toe with a jar of pickles....not easily done....another is in junior high school when I was at a track meet, and a boy I liked came by to congratulate me on my race, and I proceeded to throw up from post race exertion right next to his feet.....super sexy.

  33. one year in high school I went to a week long conference at a college in the summer. I was making new friends, enjoying the college campus, etc. One morning the system for returning used trays in the cafeteria was not working so we all had to combine our dirty breakfast dishes/trays onto carts. Apparently I didn't have a very good hold of the tray that my new friend was loading up... the whole thing (with about 3 people's worth of breakfast dishes) went crashing down, covering her in gross milk from cereal and grape juice! It took the cafeteria staff forever to clean up and luckily my friend's outfit wasn't completely ruined... but there's nothing like walking around at a conference half the day smelling like gross milk! hehe.

  38. I see a lot of these moments are from high school. Mine is from when I *worked* at a high school. It was back in the day that shoes had really high and thick wooden soles. I came out of the school door on my way home, with people all around me, and stepped on a stone and fell..........I just got up in a flash and kept going without looking around to see who saw me.

    I have no idea how I got up so fast, really.

  46. I've done so many embarassing things it's hard to pin one down. This one makes me cringe still though so here we go...Whilst being pushed in a wheelchair through our local shopping mall I spotted the chap that played Ricky Butcher in Eastenders. Not embarrassing you say, well unfortunately I couldn't remember his real name and in my attempt to tell the person who was pushing me to look at him I yelled rather loudly "OOh there's Ricky Butcher!!" My friend wanted to die on the spot as he saw me and quite obviously heard me...this mouthy red-head in the wheelchair. At least he's used to mouthy red-heads and my friend was quick-witted enough to say "she doesn't get out much" which raised a wry grin from him. Sid Owen I think is his real name, I'm blushing just thinking about it. Nightmare!

  47. My most embarrassing moment was in Oct 1996. Me and a few girl friends were persuaded(begged and pleaded with) to enter the World Conker Championships in Northamptonshire. Somehow we ended up winning the team event so I'm a Conker World Champion! You couldn't make it up could you?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Embarrasing but only I knew....out walking with my dog and I came across some tracks. Oh they look like bear tracks... Oh maybe I should turn around.... As I made myself more and more nervous I ended up running all the way out of the bush hoping I didn't run into the bear. Next day I returned and looked at the tracks. They clearly were not a bear, but a dog!

  51. Embarrasing moment? You must be having a good laugh at all these :) In the days when "bodies" were in fashion last time around I spent a long time in the pub ladies toilet fastening those little poppers, came out, back to my friends who were in hysterics as I'd fastened it OUTSIDE of my jeans!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I dropped my children off at school and then went the whole way around the supermarket for our weekly shop with my blouse on inside out. I didn't notice until the checkout lady told me. I ended up just paying for my shopping, left my trolley at the Customer Service Desk and then racing to the restrooms to change it back the right way out. Very embarassing!

  60. Its always hard to think of something embarassing when you're asked but you know you do stupid things all the time. I did go out for a Christmas meal with some friends in a fairly posh restaurant and couldn't work out why the girls were giggling when I came back from the toilet...I had worn a new cardigan and had left the tag in and it was dangling down on the outside. How embarassing...at least it was a decent shop I bought it from!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hmm, done far too many embarrassing things, some of which I can't tell you because of the official secrets act, but I'm pleased to say the alcaholic gof has diminished the experience! I did belch the worlds longest belch not longer after I met my partner, fortunately we both fell about laughing, though inside I was both amazed cos I've never done that before or since, and was cringing.

  70. Oh I nearly wet myself from laughing reading these comments - what a brilliant thing to have people do for your giveaway. As for me my life is one constant embarrassing situation - I am very very bad with faces. There is a name for this condition: prosopagnosia - although I am not clinically bad, like my student who told me that she didn't recognize her own boyfriend on the subway - just bad enough to make my life one embarrassing situation after another. Most of these situations involve variations on me having long conversations on the street with people who obviously know me but I can't for the life of me remember. Or the other way around: people say hello to me on the street but I assume they are speaking to someone behind me and sail on by. My daughter or husband will say "Why didn't you speak to Joe?" When I recognize an actor on television from his role in another movie, it's a real day of celebration in our house! On the other hand, I am very good at names! Just FYI, if you are interested in prosopagnosia, you can go to a lab at Harvard to do some interesting on-line experiments: http://www.faceblind.org/facetests/index.php Hmmm, awfully long comment - I think I should do a blog post on this!

  77. One thing that has happened in the recent past is that when I was pregnant with my oldest son, I got sick a lot in the beginning. I vividly remember one day, I was about 9 weeks pregnant, we had our first doctors appointment. After the appointment, we went and got pedicures. I had eaten a breakfast burrito and lemonaide. Well the burrito and lemonade came up right as I was getting out of the car at Walmart. There were a bunch of people staring at me. Then later that day, we were buying a new car and I had to clamp my mouth closed while we were talking to the car dealer and run to the bathroom and vomit. The guy was so embarassed! I wasn't, but to him it was embarassing.

  81. I was just reading all the embarrassing moments thinking - Oh I never embarrass myself. Then I remembered the shoe incident. When I get in I tend to kick my shoes off in the dining room as I don't like outdoor shoes being worn in my sitting room which is carpeted. I'm not great in the mornings so one morning dashing to work I slipped on the first shoes I came to and dashed out to the car. When I was walking from the car park to work I thought what on earth is wrong with my leg. I had a proper full on limp you'd have though I had a wooden leg. I walked into the office and looked down to see I was wearing two black shoes - only from different pairs and one was a good inch higher than the other. I had to make some excuse quick to dash home and change before anyone else noticed. When I got back to the office I felt even worse because everyone was really concerned as to what was wrong!

  90. So many embarrassing life moments. the one that jumps to mind though is that when I was new to town, I joined the junior league. My "small group"--none of whom I knew yet--came over for a casual dinner of soup and salad. You know, it was one of those evenings where I wanted everything to look effortless and perfect. I made homemade chicken soup and partway through dinner I got a chicken bone stuck in my throat. I started to choke so I jumped up to run to the other room to cough and cough. But I didn't make it. I was passing the sink when suddenly my gag reflex kicked in and I threw up in the sink. I was so embarassed--in front of all these nice ladies. Needless to say, the party broke up pretty quickly and we had lots of leftovers of the soup.

  94. Just this Halloween I transported 2 of my grandkids to preschool, dressed as the court jester in a silly hat with a bunch of bells at the end of many points, you know, a jester hat. We did our little costume parade, and I left, to return and get them in the afternoon. Back in my car, the CD we were listening to was still in the player, and I found myself at a red light singing "No more monkeys jumpin on the bed!" when I looked over and the man in the car next to me was just eyes all a buggy thinkin "What a NUT!" Just me, the crazy jester in the car, no kids.

  110. once we went on a trip with some family members and there was a beautiful waterfall with a small area where the water is held. Some of the (tall) boys were already in the water (Up-to their chest) seeing this I thought may be it was not so deep. I was holding my (same age) niece's hand and was about to 'walk' in to the water when my cousin shouted not to come from that side - but without thinking I just kept my foot in the water pulling my self AND my niece into it.

    That was my first trip to such a place. So what happened was, we both were 'rolling' and coming up several times in the water before we could finally 'stand' as we didn't know how to place our feet on the ground in water!

    It was so embarrassing and even now my niece would say that I 'jumped' into the water 'pulling' her.

  112. hmmmm, my most embarrassing moment....I have so many, but OK, here is one. When I had my 2nd child (27 years ago) the hospital had a "room" with a sitz bath in it. The nurses insisted that I use it. But they failed to tell me how. So I filled it up (it's like a large toilet!!) and sat in it. Well, I filled it too full and the water went everywhere.....the floor, my gown, my slippers, etc. I had to call the nurses to rescue me. They came running thinking I was hurt, but I was just super wet. It was very embarrassing to my 25 year old self.

  126. ok this was not funny at the moment but funny now for us to look back on.

    I was dropping my son off at an elderly friend of mine who would watch him one day a week. Her driveway is on a very slight incline. So I have caught myself thinking the car is in park when it isnt when I am in her driveway. Well...one day I was standing there talking to her and I look out the little side lite and here comes MY CAR! very slow but its heading towards us! I tried to get out to it but before I could, it was there & it had blocked us from going out the door! It was like a side door to their house so no porch or anything...I said "oh my gosh how are we going to get out?" and she laughed and said "well I guess the back door!" Amazingly it was going slow enough that it didn't do any damage to her house or the car...so now we both laugh about it. LOL!

  129. One time, at bandcamp...

    Just kidding, but once at summer camp, a bee flew up my jeans and stung me, and in the middle of lunch, I stripped my jeans off (down to my undies) so that I wouldn't get stung again.

  131. My most embarassing moment just happened last week and I'm 58 years old! I went to an art museum I've never been to, zigged when I should have zagged, and got locked in their employee-only stairwell! I had to call the museum on my cell phone and have Security come and rescue me! Oh my.... I did blog about it if you want all the gory details.

  133. I already follow both blogs :)

    one of the most embarrassing things I've ever done is

    ... when I slipped on a bit of cat puke in my corridor, and went crashing into a whole row of framed prints I had leaning up against my skirting board (I'd just brought them back from an exhibition I was having)

    ... I ended up with three huge shards of glass lodged firmly in my ample bottom.

    I spent 5 days on my stomach in hospital with various medics just coming in to snigger at the girl with glass in her arse ...

    ah memories ;)

  137. I'm having trouble thinking of just one embarrassing thing that would be worth telling...probably the time I saw a colleague at a conference reception who I hadn't seen in a long time. I was so happy to see her that I flailed my (freakishly long) arms up and flipped her cup of coffee all over her linen suit. I was mortified!

  138. Embarrassing? I once had one of my students, a high school senior ask me to prom in front of the whole class. I thought he was joking, and my reply - no, of course - was a little sharp. I was just so taken by surprise! Anyway, his feelings were hurt, and I was so embarrassed that I'd done that to him. He was a great kid, and I didn't realize that students didn't understand why that would just be wrong . . .
