You guys are gonna love reading these...that is, if everyone contributes fairly.  

Last night on the phone a close friend and I had a discussion on all the dumb and embarassing things we've done.

I must admit, some of them were hilarious stories b/c we were pretty damn intoxicated! That's beside the point...

I thought it would be interesting to see what you all have to say for this one.

Please feel free to go crazy with this one...I'm anxious to see what all has to be said.

p.s. don't be shy!! we all have really good ones... I KNOW IT!  

Happy writing...

Well I suppose I will go first.  I know I have many of them but here are a few I did NOT block out.      

I can remember in high school we all stood to say the morning prayer (yep Catholic school) I was at the front of the class and that day I decided to wear this skirt. Well, we were all done with saying prayer and the guy behind me says "You know your skirt is tucked into the back of your Panty hose" I looked behind me and yep there it was tucked nicely into them..How embarassing. I wonder where that draft came from?


and the big one I remember is the day I got married I diden't do it but my husband did, he said "I take this thing to be my awful wedded wife" OMG everyone laughed and I could have crawled up in my dress and died! but I lived and life went on. hehehe

Well, Horizon, Looks like you wedding was an interesting one!! LoL Anyways, I think a lot of u s have the "dress caught somewhere embarassing" thing Last year's homecoming, I had just exited the from the long awaited bathroom trip as a good guy friend of mine noticed that my long dress was caught in my thong. I don't think I've lived that one down. I received the nickname "thong star" and to this day am reminded of how horrible it is for everyone t see your white butt in a thong at homecoming!     

Doreen, I think every girl has that one in the book!! I know I do. It's quite an interesting story, but lets just say that's how I met a great guy one time. LoL needless to say, it dind't work, my exibitionism was too much for him I suppose! hehehe (I'm not an exibitionist, nor do I ever see it in my future! hehe) Anyways, come on, I know you can do better!!

I once sneezed so hard that I farted, and of course my male boss had to be standing right next to me when I did it.  
I thought I was going to die. He just quit typing, paused for a moment then went back to his work. Of course, I scurried out of the area red as a tomato I'm sure.
To this day he's never said a word to me about it. Thank goodness.


Now, ihave another story about my sisters best friend.
She went on a fourth date with this guy and they decided to go water skiing with his firends. She'd never tried it before but she thought she'd give it a whirl. They told her what she needed to do and, Wow, she did it.
After a few minutes of skiing, she fell, and boy did she fall hard!
When she returned back into the boat she started to tell every one that she hit the bottom of the lake, mean while, reaching into the back of her shorts to show every one the gravel the she picked up.
When she pulled her hand out and shoved it towards everyone, she realized that it was not gravel.
It was poop. She, she hit so hard on her rear end that she gave her self an enema. ROFL!      
She said that she just wanted to go over board and not return.
Later she thought to herself. How could I have hit the bottom of the lake?
I wondered the same thing. Hehehehe
Anyway, now when my firends and I ski or wake board and someone crashes, that's always the question. "Did ya hit the bottom?"

Oh yeah, they are married today!  
And she'd kill me if she knoew I posted this too!

OK ... this happened last year at the office. I went to reception to check my incoming phone messages, and on the pink slip it read:

From: Debbie
To: Kit
Subject: Demo
Message:  Call her back regarding viagra fix.

The looks I got from the receptionist were worth a million bucks. I'd ordered several of this companie's software training CD's for staff training purposes, and found myself frantically digging in my inbox to find the original letter from this software CD training company that said they were in the midst of a name change due to the confusion with the drug!

Their company name was .... Via Grafix

(their letter actually said "we solve an entirely different kind of problem") LOL!  

My husband didn't think this was as funny as I did, ROFL!

Irie~
That has to be one of the funniest things I've heard!! OMG! ROFL!! That poor girl...I bet she always hears about it!! muahahaha oh dear I can't stop laughing! As for your story, well I guess that gives a new meaning to "breaking the ice" anyways, thanks for sharing!!  

Kit~
For some reason, I don't understand why your husband didn't find the humor in it! I thought it was great! My gosh, if I could only see the look on the receptionist's face!! I'd pay good money to see that one! Thanks for sharing Kit!!

I have one really good one to share...but I'm anxiously awaiting on a few more people to reply first...keep an eye out!!

You know, I've never given it much thought before, but I honestly don't know if I've been embarrassed about anything since Junior High. Usually, I'm afraid I'm the cause of embarrassment, rather then the recipient.

Like the time I took my father-in-law, Don, to a downtown bar in LA when he visited California for the first time. Don was a typical Midwest guy, in his late fifties at the time, an ex-seaman and construction worker, and didn't understand why we had to drive for an hour to get a drink. As I recall, we were on our second or third beer when one of the patrons asked him to dance. Yep, it was a gay bar. To Don's credit, we finished our beers before leaving. But listening to him explain to my mother-in-law later was well worth the long drive North.

Or like the time I promised my younger sister, Nancy, I'd take her and her husband out when she turned twenty-one. She's nine years younger than me and VERY naïve. Nonetheless, she was a bit quicker on the uptake than Don and realized almost immediately that the dancers on the stage were wearing nothing but a smile from the waist up. It cost me twenty bucks under the table, but when one of the dancers tried to convince Nancy to "audition" the look on her sputtering face was priceless!

Same sister, a few years later, and Christmas was approaching. I bought her husband, Lance, a bong pipe (don't ask) and Nancy a pair of panties from Fredricks of Hollywood. I won't go into a lot of detail about the undergarments, but I will mention they included an attached whistle. And very little else. But the ensuring embarrassment really wasn't my fault this time - I had absolutely no idea that Lance's Mom was going to be visiting California for the Holidays. For years, Nancy would insist on taking my gifts into her bedroom to open privately.

I honestly don't know what it would take to embarrass me, though. Certainly, not nudity. As a photographer and painter for twenty years, it's almost blasé. My pool in California was well secluded and in all the time I lived there I don't think I ever bought a bathing suit. And, yea, I got "caught" a few times. One of my best buds, Mark (who later bought my company), pulled down my shorts in a very well attended game of hoops - little realizing the only thing beneath was a jock strap. I missed the shot, but I wasn't embarrassed (and thanks to the pool, there were NO tan marks).

Nor am I embarrassed by stupid mistakes (which are far too frequent in my life to be unusual). The first time I taught in front of a class a few years ago, I was so nervous I not only forgot the class notes I had spent HOURS preparing but even forgot the book I was to use in the class. There I was, in front of twenty strangers, and I had absolutely nothing to say. So I told them I was nervous because I hadn't done this before, admitted I had goofed, and we spent fifty minutes going around the room and letting everyone explain why they were interested in computers. It worked so well, I've since started all my classes with introductions.

This is a good topic, if only because it's made me think about what embarrassment really entails. What is this feeling we call embarrassment? Is it a form of shame? Or is it just emotional slapstick? Laughing at someone's else expense, like the guy who falls on a banana peel? Interesting…

I always loved playing sports. Well one day in gym class we were playing basketball. My best friend threw the ball to me. I missed it so I had to run and get it.  Well me with the clumsey feet tripped. And instead of falling I grabbed the closest thing to me. Which happened to be some guys behind!!! I felt so dumb that I wish I would have just fell and took the pain.

Well I still have to think of the more embarassing ones, so I will get back to yous!!!

Very good topic! I have to say though, that

I'm much in the same boat as Ron - I don't embarrass. (I "mooned" my High School class at a football rally...)

But I do often cause the embarrassment (most of the time, yes, on purpose...LOL)

Hitting up on the waitress at my mom's birthday party dinner who's almost as old as my mom...

Skinny dipping in a neighbors pool and stealing everyone elses clothes... hehe

Being in a full supermarket with a male friend and saying really loudly: "Will you please quit touching me THERE in public!!!"

There's plenty - *wink*

I'm enjoying the responses!

Hmmm...interesting!!   I am still waiting for more though before I reveal the best yet!! Here's one to tide y'all over...I was at this party...it was about 3 hours into and everyone there had a pretty good buzz going. I thought it would be interesting to try doing crazy stuff no one had ever done before.So I thought I would jump from the roof into the pool (little did I know, it had been tried and the last guy who tried it ended up in the hospital)I made it into the deep end of the pool just fine...but somewhere between my descent and the impact in the pool, and I'm sure my drunken state of panic as I hit the freezing water, my clothes managed to come off...nowhere to be found soon after (thanks to all the guys) It was quite an evening!!

Let's see..

I had that time when I was a highschool cheerleader and I was at the top of the pyramind and my skirt fell off.

Then there was the time that during a major dance performance my shoe slipped and the rest of me with it.  I went into the band pit, but not without taken out a few of the other dancers.

At a gymnastics meet,I thought that I was a champion and I was going to win until I landed face first in the highbar.

Another dance competition, I grabbed the outfit of another dancer to stop from falling and ripped the back of the outfit start down and then had to help hurry her off stage not only because of embrassment, but cause she wasn't wearing any underwear.

Dance competitons are some of the best places to see ppl at their stupidest.

Last one.
The roughest one.
Our dance team all got disqualified by phone and was called to the lobby to see why. There were our dance guys with only towels around there waist. Apparantly, when lights out was called all our guys went to the rooms of some other girls (all in the same team and same room) and started to get their groove on when the instructor from that team came in to remind the girls of something and found our guys. NAKED!!!

Now that is EMBRASSING!!!


Love,
Lady



Live in my world just once and you'll find yourself enraptured.

This is the best one yet!!!

I was at a party about 3 years ago with my best guy friend Moises. Well I kept taking shots of tequila. A little to many. So we went in the bathroom just in case I had to puke. I sit on the floor and he decides to sit on the toilet seat. We're talking. I tell him I have to puke. He jumped up so quick. I have never seen anyone do that before. Well I ended up puking my brains out but having fun before I did. I felt so dumb. But he probably felt dumber. I mean sitting on the toilet!!!Hello you dont do that if someone got to puke.

And till this day he still laughs at me for it!!!

ok, but be warned, this is not for the demure amongst us...*g*

Many years ago, I was asked out by a very nice guy, very much the gentleman (not much humour though..ROFL)

Anyway, just before he was due to pick me up I developed (diplomatic me) ladies problems..*g* and as luck would have it, just as I was trying to get *it* out of the packaging, the doorbell rang, in my haste, the thing fell apart, quickly I got another and resolved the problem, brought the door to, and went to open the front door....we then left after a very chaste kiss....

On returning I asked him in for a coffee, showed him into the lounge, turned a few lamps on, put some classical music on the stereo and went to grind the coffee...

I didn't notice however that my Siamese cat Kara was missing, she normally howls on my return...LOL (clue No:1)....having made the coffee, put cups,  saucers and choc mints on the tray I returned to the lounge....there to my absolute disgust was my cat Kara complete with tampax in her mouth pretending it was her hard won catch of a mouse, shaking it from side to side and tossing it up in the air....needless to say, he was dumbstruck...with anyone else I would have howled with laughter but one look at his face said he disaproved....

1 minute later, he left, something about washing his hair....ROFLMAO...oooops

I've got EVERYONE beat!


Last year, we had a German exchange student. Well, I was in love with him. If you go back to poems I posted up to the end of June, they will all be about him. He was the center of my universe. Well, it was pretty early in the year. I was a freshman, and still making an impression on the rest of the school. One day, I was walking up the stairs when I saw HIM at the top of them. My eyes were drawn to him instantly. Those eyes just drew me in. It was like going to the stairway to Heaven...

And then I fell, right at his feet. I can still hear him laughing. But all I could think at the time was "What a beautiful laugh! I MADE HIM LAUGH!!!"

And there's another...

This summer, I was in the play "Li'l Abner". I was in love with my dance partner for the Sadie Hawkin's day ballet. (in case you are wondering, in this ballet, we chase the guys around and marry whoever we catch) It was the last night, and there are always huge pranks that go on to make people break charactor. I decided to kiss him onstage when we were "married". Oh, just a minor point.. he's 6'4, and I'm 5'6...

I got nothing but air... in front of over 800 people.

I've embarrassed myself a lot, but those two have to be the most painful!

False gems may shine as brightly as the genuine article, but there are always those who can tell the difference.

OK, I'm laughing so hard I have tears here.

There is one in particular I can remember at the moment, so here it is.

This was way back in my teen years, maybe just before. My older sister had these pair of shoes, clogs but with heels. I loved them, and wanted to wear them. So I did just that, I put them on thinking I was so cool.

It was a rainy day so the ground was all wet, and I walked a few blocks to the Jewel around the corner. When I got in there I started down the aisle and my shoes being wet, well my feet gave out from under me, and I sprawled right there in front of the entire store.

I was so embarrassed I could have died.

Another time, I worked with a girl and we became friends. Both had the initials RP. She took me out to a party one night with her friends. They played a card, drinking game. For some reason I seemed to be getting all the drinks. Well, I remember the beginning and I remember leaving, but I don't remember anything in the middle. She was kind enough to fill me in though. As the toilet in the bathroom was overflowing, I was throwing up in it. Then if that wasn't bad enough, when we got back to work, unknown to me, she told our boss about it.

The next thing I heard was my boss saying over the intercom at work, FUBAR to the office, FUBAR to the office. That was my nickname for a while after that. I was embarrassed, and completely shocked. ROFL!

For those of you that don't know what that means...(Fudged Up Beyond All Repair)(you'll have to insert the first word yourself)

I thought of another here, I actually wrote this down to remember a long time from now.
Kids say the darndest things. (happened a few years back)

My daughter just into kindergarten, and the Mom's came early to pick them up. We all waitied outside, right outside the door to their class.

That day I had worn a pair of white stir-ups, with a white shirt that had a big cat on the front of it. It was a really large shirt at that, a time or two I had worn it as a night shirt.

The kids came spilling out the door, and there was my Ashley. She stopped and stood for a moment looking at me, and then LOUDLY announced, Mom, why are you wearing your pajamas?  Well, I did get the looks from every mom standing there. I started to laugh, but oh my I was so embarrassed I must have turned red. It was not my pj's but just a shirt I had happen to have worn a couple of times.

Hey Rainbow....You just kill it girl, you have me on the floor laughing so much I almost cried lol TRUE!

Ok what I did wasn't as hilarious as the others above, but very embarrassing.....

I was about 17, my sister asked me to go to the butcher for her and get her some topside mince, she wanted 250g.. anyway of I went.... walked inside and waited in line to be served, they were very busy that day, ok my turn was up, and the lovely man behind the counter asked what I would like, I smiled ever so cheerful and asked for 250g of topside mince please....

he frowned and looked at me odd, and added very slowly......

Thisssss isssssss a fishhhhhhh shop!

I looked down and saw fish and squid etc etc and suddenly I could smell that horrible fish smell you get at the markets, imagine the colour of my face. I looked around and saw the other customers staring at me, Oh I looked back at the owner and replied.... "Oh, it is too! hehehe thanked him and walked out.... I have never forgotten it.

that shop used to be a butcher before it was a fish shop.

Hmmm...when I was in grade school/junior high, the seats at the tables in the cafeteria were round and were all connected to each other, down by the floor, by a length of metal. Well, one day in 6th grade after I was finished with lunch, I got up and tripped over the length of metal. Same thing happened in my freshman year of high school--I got up to throw something away while I was in class, and I tripped over the leg of my desk. Then the next day I was talking to a girl who was in the class with me, and I asked her if she had the pen I had leant to her a day or two ago. She said she didn't have it with her, or something like that. Anyway, this other guy heard what she said, and said, "You have no respect for her, because she fell on the ground." Embarrassing, but funny nonetheless.

Then there was the time at work when I was waiting on a customer, saying "Yes, sir," and "No, sir," throughout the whole order. Then the customer handed me their credit card, and said to me, "By the way, that's ma'am. I'm a female." Oops! I didn't quite know what to say to that.  

This one is even funnier, but it didn't happen to me. One of my co-workers was finishing up an order and was going to say thank you to the customer, but instead she said, "I love you." I about laughed my head off when she told me that, and when I was typing this up.

Ok well, its about that time to reveal my most embarassing...

For some, nothing embarasses them...others, the slightest little joke about them will make them turn bright red, and everything in between. Like Ron up there, nothing embarasses him (so he says) But I believe otherwise...I'm sure at one point or another he's done something so unbelievably retarded that he wished he could climb into a hole. ADMIT IT RON!! I'VE GOT YOU!!  

Anyways, back to my story, some of you would think this isn't even that big of a deal, and had my customer not given such a reply it wouldn't have been.

At the time I was working at this place where people (almost always ladies) would come in and buy a piece of bisque (unglazed pottery) and paint it...we would glaze it and fire it for them. And this lady had come in, I had just gotten done eating and she asked me if I could please get this piece down from the top shelf. Being pregnant, I wouldn't expect her to reach so high to get it. Well, I got it down and then proceeded to ask when she was due...

Her response could have killed me!! She said " I have never been so insulted in all my life!! I'm not pregnant you ignorant little fool!!" It was so embrassing! And then to top it off, the next day, I strolled in for my shift having completely forgotten about yesterday's mishap. I saw a letter for me in my box...I opened it and it said

To: Jessica
From:Meagan
Subject:Ass

Dear Jessica: Please in the future, refrain from asking customers questions that anger and insult them. The lady that you thought was pregnant called me today and asked that I hire more courteous people.

I could have died!! My goodness I felt so bad! And of course, I was courteous, I just made an unfortunate assumption! Needless to say, I quit that job a few months later when she came back in to paint something else and I said "oh, you're back I didn't think you would be"   I didn't mean for it to be mean, but I wouldn't have shown back up if someone said something like that. So of course, she complained to my boss...On all of my future applications, do you think I should put, "terminated by assumptions"? haha

Thank you all for replying I was most amused!!

Ouch! I don't blame you for being embarrassed, but I do think that ladt didn't need to take it quite so hard!

I agreed and thought she was being ridiculous...but then I think about how I would have reacted if someone said somethinglike that to me. hehehe I don't think I've ever been so embarassed though!! I felt absolutely horrible

Wonder if she's still mad..?

this thread bears out my theory that men suffer to a greater extent than women from feelings of insecurity.  look at the proportion of women replying quite prepared to admit their idiocies because they are secure in the knowledge that they are really terrific people  

.... check out the men!!

two of 'em ..... well one and a half anyway   ....

...... and what do they say?  they say they don't get embarrassed .... yeah yeah ..   

P

... hummm ...sheesh, y'know i'm having real problems thinking of anything that's happened to me ....lol
