So, Philip...what you're saying is that I am not insecure at all? Considering the fact that I put so many out on the table? Wow, and I always thought I was...hhmmm...and a really excellent person eh? Wow! You've got me flattered!  

As for the men, we all know there are some GREAT stories floating around...but they're too afraid to admit it!!   '

Just like the others here, I know that you have some interesting stories to share...do tell!!  

*Anxiously awaiting your reply so I can laugh my ass off* hahaha

I just thought of this one cause of Chris's topic...Thanks Chris!!!

One day I went out with my friend "J". We were going out with some friends that I never really talked to. But wanted to get to know cause they were really cute guys. Well I get in the car with a soda and we started talking about this other guy. And "O" says "hes a morron" (sorry if the spellings wrong) while I had soda in my mouth. And instead of swallowing it I spit it all over this guys car and all over the other ones head. Did I make a good first impression or what?!?!?!

that's exactly what i meant Star  

and you are dead right about the men ..oh and ego comes into it as well ....heh ....

anyway ....ok ok...I thought and thought last night ..  and I realised that all the most embarrassing things happened to me when I was around 10 or 11 years old.  After that i got too kewl to be embarrassed.

The worst was at a family Christmas gathering with friends where each family performed a little play with the children acting for the benefit (!?) of the adults.  This particular year we gathered at the house of the wealthiest of my parents' friends - big mansion, big cars, priceless antiques etc etc etc, i was always overawed when we went there.  Anyway they erected this little stage thingy with wings created by turning round a couple of Welsh Dressers (tall piece of furniture about 8 or 9 feet high with drawers under and open display shelves over).  The tall back was turned stage wards with the display shelves facing outwards to the audience.

I was in a suitably aggressive role as the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood.  Half way through the action i was called upon to knock on the door to grandmother's cottage in the woods.  

I did knock.  Very loudly and very hard on the back of this Welsh Dresser thing.   What i didn't know was that the idiot hostess had left her priceless collection of antique bone china on full display in the high shelves so, no doubt, that the rest of the audience could be suitable impressed with her plates.  

As I enthusiastically thumped the rear of the dresser the audience were treated to the spectacle of a few thousand pounds worth of plates gracefully toppling down on top of them to smash on the floor and the other furniture.

The wolf exited stage left and didn't return ......lol

I did recall this event...

I was bussing tables at Denny's (embarrassing in its own right), I was putting away the clean dishes and took a stack of soup bowls to the little chute that they were held in.  I gently lowered them into the chute and turned to go back to get more stuff when I heard this weird springy sound... upon turning I witnessed the bowls begining to rise (the chute is spring loaded don't ya know).  As they rose the stack tipped and I stood frozen and watched (with about 50 other people) as one bowl after the next slipped and crashed to the floor... about 10 bowls later I woke up and rushed over to grab them.

After cleaning up the mess, amid amused comments from regular customers and co-workers, I went to the back to get ice to fill the ice bins.  I came out, carrying two metal ice buckets full of ice, after dumping the ice in the bin I again turned to go to the back, at which point one bucket slipped from my hand and clattered to the floor (loudly).  As I went to grab it, I kicked the other bucket, in a blink of an eye I was suddenly scurrying after two metal buckets, kicking each one in turn, across the tile floor, much to the amusement of the same folks who had just watched me destroy a dozen soup bowls.  I chased the two buckets the 20 foot length of the lunch counter and finally secured them.  Standing up to the gracious standing ovation of the entire restaurant...

Okay, it's out.  Finally after 20 years I have told that story....

Ok, I know I'm going to be ruined, but here goes. It really is funny (now)  

I hadn't been in this office very long, a few months and my self-confidence was low.  One day after using the restroom, I walked through the office trying to appear confident and like I really knew what I was doing you know?  Well, people were sure noticing me, turning their heads, smiling, I thought "wow, I'm a hit, they love me"

I even got my hopes up that someone would invite me to lunch until a co-worker whispered for me to please come over.  She reached down and whispered in my ear

"You  have TOILET PAPER streaming down the outside of your slacks, dear"

I don't work there anymore at least, that's a consolation.

Well, I've got a couple from about 10 years back, when I was in Budapest, Hungary.

One day, being my normal persnickety, jaded, cynical, pragmatistic person, I had succeeded in finally breaking the resolve of two of my friends, so much in fact that Dave launched himself at me and pinned me to the bed, while Julie proceeded to tickle me most vehemently. Now, it should be noted about now that I am extremely tickelish. So I started cackling and giggling, thrashing and squirming to get from under Dave and away from Julie, who had long, strong fingernails. Not watching what I was doing, I reached out and tried to tickle her back...instead I succeeded in squeezing something soft and roundish, close by her arm. Time stopped for a moment. Then I was suddenly on the other side of the bed, having leapt from a prone position, Julie was staring open-mouthed, and Dave was having an apoplectic fit of laughter. I've never been that shade of red before in so many areas of skin...felt like my entire body was on fire.  

The other one didn't embarrass me, but did someone else. Students in Budapest are pretty relaxed and laid back, and have no qualms about unisex showers. Now, this was a hostel, so there were many showers in the washroom, but no privacy curtains. Well, on this particular day, I was having a nice, hot, long shower, and stepped out with a towel around my head drying my hair. I heard a gasp, and the sound of a plastic bottle hitting tile. I looked up into the startled face of a woman who had come to take her shower, who's face was rapidly turning crimson. There didn't seem to be much I could do, so I gathered my things and went past her back to my room, never realizing my towel was still around my head.

Philip~hahaha, you amuse me! I know that I'm an excellent person...no I'm only kidding. I'm not conceited. Very modest per se. Mr. Wolf, I can't believe you! LoL that was a great story! I was very amused while sitting in my computer app. class reading it.Thanks for sharing!!

JP~ 20 years 'eh? wow, I feel special! and I am so proud that I could pull it out of you! hehehe anyways, I've done stuff like that! One time we were on a field trip at the state capitol and I was sitting down, I dropped a paper, leaned down to pick it up, hit my head on this thing protruding from the wall, threw my head bcak b/c it hurt, hit my head yet again on the pop machine, finally I stood up so I wouldn't do anything else...well then I tripped, fell down the stairs and everyone in the capitol saw it because I was laughing and yelling so loud. If only we had it on video!  

Kathleen~I've done something of the sort also. At a wedding, looking very cute of course, come out of the bathroom...what is stuck to my shoe??? TP! I was so embarassed I think I was red for an hour. I still hear about it.

Alicat~hhmmm...very interesting! LoL I think I've done the first...but chose to block it out for certain reasons. LoL and as for the second one, I guess she would be able visualize that one for quite a while. LoL j/k. So you think she was embarassed or just in shock?? haha I would more so be like omg, didn't someone mention that we do wear towels for a reason. LoL j/k!!!

~THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR SHARING!! I'VE BEEN MOST AMUSED BY THEM~
