Last week when my parents were visiting we were talking about embarrassing moments. I can well and truly see the funny side of my story now so I'd thought I'd share and see if anyone else could beat it...(yep thats a challenge chickies-for those of you who are game)

Okay so for my story...

When I was 19 I was the designated driver for a night on the town with some girlfiriends. So we rock up to the club...of course I was all dolled up wearing my favourite knitted top which had buttons down the front. Anyhoo the club was extra smoky which played havoc with my contact lenses so I was having trouble seeing-nothing like a bit of blurred vision. So I decided to duck outside into the fresh air. On the way out I tripped down a step that I couldn't see, fell onto a guy, my top got caught on his belt buckle and when I tried to stand up my top opened right up. Worst of all it seemed to be stuck on this guys belt. So here I am on my knees in front of a guy that I had never met with my top open and fumbling around with his belt. Of course EVERYONE thought I was drunk and I was SOOOOO embarrassed but it makes for a good story now...:D

So can any of you chickies beat that...want to share???

LMAO Fee!!! What a crazy night you had! :P Other than the typical toilet paper sticking to your shoe after coming out of a public restroom, I've got nuthin'! I've probably just repressed a lot of that stuff...I'll let you know when it all comes back to the surface to haunt me ;)

too funny!!!

I unfortunately have A LOT of embarassing stories, but I think I will share the one that goes with the *I am 2* LO (http://www.thedigichick.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/23030/limit/recent) that I just posted.

I failed to mention in the journaling the obvious... Since my daughter's home birth was unplanned, I really wasn't prepard for company :O) And when the ten or so firemen and emt workers rushed into the house, I was on my hands and knees butt necked on my bathroom floor. At the time I didn't care, I had other things to worry about, but I will never forget that some of my city's finest saw me in ALL my glory!

ok- i'll join fee in sharing an embarassing moment. :D

know how when you start a new job, and you want to impress your coworkers? i made a really good impression at my last job, lol. when i started at the casino, the casino was on two riverboats. employees couldn't use the front entrance and they couldn't use the elevators- they could only use the stairs. the stairs on the big boat faced a giant, two story mirrored wall. you could see EVERYTHING on that wall.

my first night shift, i was walking down those stairs, on my way to the breakroom. the stairs were crowded, i was walking with a group of dealers, we were laughing and talking, and... i missed a step. not only did i land on my butt, i slid down the stairs ON my butt. in front of everyone. in front of that darn mirror. i had guests coming up to me all night telling me that they saw me fall and wanted to make sure that i was ok (i just told them that only my pride was hurt).

what made it worse was when i was on lunch and one of the surviellance guys said that they saw me fall, on camera. which means that it is on tape in the vault where surviellance keeps the videos.

EEK! Oh my gosh JAN! THAT would of resulted in me quitting school, lol! (j/k) but seriously - DANG that is classic! lol! (I think I would of killed my teacher tho... lol!)

Mine? when I was about 14 or 15, my family vacationed in Vegas. My younger sis and I decided to go swimming in the pool. I was wearing a strapless bikini. (eek...) I jumped in, bobbed up and down went my top! I was mortified. (Not like they haven't seen worse there, right? but for ME, a modest 14 yr old that hated for even my MOM watch me change, I died... lol!) Still doesn't beat Jan's though.... hee hee!

These are great! I was thinking about mine a week or so ago, actually thinking of starting a similar thread, but do you think I can remember it right now? I'll try to remember tonight...loving them so far :D

One note, though, Ashleigh: mine was a prepared homebirth, and the EMTs saw me in all my glory too...but they came after she was born and I was hemmoraging, so that's a bit different. I'm pretty mortified to think of it now, but as I was in shock, I didn't notice at that moment!!!

07-11-2006, 11:45 PM
Oh, Jan. I did the snart thing too. I was visiting my in-laws one of the very first times and was pregnant with Camille. We were all gathered around in the living room, and, darn their dusty living room, I had to sneeze. Of course, out came the most delicate (yeah, right) of preggo farts along with my sneeze. For a minute I thought that perhaps my sneeze was loud enough to cover the whole thing. I kind of tried to play it off, when DH's grandmother bursts out laughing. Everyone got a good laugh, but luckily I could play the preggo trump card on that one :)

Others you ask? Oh yes....
There's the cartoonish trail of toilet paper that cascaded behind me at the Phantom of the Opera, the dress tucked up into my pantyhose so as to show my rear-end off to all who passed (a different evening), peeing on myself in front of my whole school (when I was in first grade, mind you), oh the list does go on and on....

Charla
07-12-2006, 09:15 AM
I remember mine. I have more than one...and I'm a redhead, so I blush.

Most recently, there was a day when I was standing in church, talking to a man there about something, when I looked down. I hadn't snapped up the nursing flaps on my dress, so my white bra was very visible against my black dress!!!

When I was in college, we went on band trips every year. One of the fun parts of the trips was finding dumb things people did, and awarding them "weenie points," and then the person with the most points at the end won a trophy with a hotdog on it. I was in the band 5 years (last year of high school and 4 years of college) without actually getting any weenie points, and I made the mistake of mentioning that midway through my senior trip.
So one of the clowns tried hard to nail me on something. They came up with a crazy plan...my roommate took my deodorant, gave it to the clown, who took a bite out of it (ewwwww). They announced, in front of the band and the guy I had a tremendous crush on for 2 years, that the cat at the house the night before had eaten it and died. I knew it couldn't be true, but I was sooooo embarrassed. My face and ears turned red/purple, and my ears stayed red the rest of the evening.

And my most embarrasing moment: in 10th grade, I had one of those rubber balloon-things filled with water...the things that slide out of your hand? Like this, minus the sparkles http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y62/berekah_44/squirm-4.jpgAnyways, I was silly and brought it to school. I was sitting in my global studies class, playing with it under the desk (boring class) when it exploded. I hadn't squeezed it or anything! The whole class heard it, but didn't know what it was. The girl in front of me said, "I think she just threw up." and everyone turned around to look at me. I don't remember what I did, but I let them know my stomach was fine.
Unfortunately, I still had to go to math class, but now my pants were completely covered with water, so it really looked like I had had an accident. And that math teacher liked to call on kids to have them put the previous nights' homework on the board. So I wore my coat around my waist, and prayed I wouldn't have to put mine on the board that day (I think I was off the hook).

Wow you guys! I can't believe that this many days have gone past, and more people don't fess up! I have about a million stories. I will start with my husbands favorite!

We went to the ATM. Bill parked the car just past the 45 degree angle wall, just out of view of the ATM. So, when I finished getting the money, I turned and took a step. I puckered up to give him a big, loud air kiss, and kept walking. Of course it was a really big kiss, so I squinted, let the kiss rip, and opened my eyes to see a total stranger looking at me straight in the face, about two steps in front of me, with his jaw hanging down. Bill and I both started to laugh, and fortunately the man had just gotten out of the line of site when we both just lost it laughing.

lol Nora!

These are great! I can't think of my own right now, but rest assured that I make a dork out of myself almost daily. Can't tell you how many times I've wandered around the world with one or both of my nursing flaps undone. Lucky for me, I don't embarrass easily...lol

this thread is a riot.

My worst was when I had the weight bar fall on my head during aerobics and weightlifting class in high school. I hurt my nose badly and had 2 black eyes. And had a blind date the next night....

lovely!

One summer day, I was driving home from work. All was right with the world. The windows were open wide, and the sun roof open. The radio was blasting, I was singing, and everyone was smiling at me. I should have known a day just can not be that perfect. When I got to my exit, and crawled to a stop, I again got some nice smiles. I looked down, where they (men, of course!) were looking, just to see that my shirt had come undone, and had blown back behind me, under my arms! I had driven about 10 miles nearly topless on a very busy road!

btw, I have always worn a camisole with button up shirts since!

My story isn't nearly as embarassing as Jan's, Fee's or Nora's, but the very first time my husband and I went out, we went to the mall and then we went out to lunch.

I thought oh I'll be cool and drive him in my Chevette and I don't want to wear my glasses. It's all about the look right??? So on the way to lunch, I saw a car just like my dad's and honked and rolled down the window. My car was facing one way and the other car was the other way, so my passenger side was to his driver's side..make sense?
I said hi dad, did you just have lunch, where did you go? I thought my dad let one of his coworkers drive his car because I thought it was my dad in the passenger seat. All of a sudden I realize that something was different in the car and it wasn't my dad's car. I then said "oh you're not my dad" and sped off.

OMG my husband, who was not even my boyfriend, just a first time out looked at me like what is with this girl, she's a wacko!

OMG I was so embarassed and I'm surprised after that my husband even went out with me again.

DH and I were talking last night, reminiscing...can't believe I forgot about it before!

He took me out to a fancy restaurant when we'd been dating a little while (we were informally engaged, I had my dress, we had some of our plans solidified for the wedding and honeymoon, but no ring yet so it was "informal" still). We dressed up and went out.

Partway through the beautiful evening, my mouth and brain became disconnected just long enough for me to ask, "so, is there any special reason for this dinner?" DUH! Like he's going to tell me if he was about to propose ("well, since you brought it up...") and if he wasn't, then what's he supposed to say? He quickly recovered and said, "well, neither of us had been here before, so I thought we should enjoy it together."

Turns out, the ring wasn't finished yet...he had planned to propose that night, but couldn't because of the ring. So he showed up at my house the next day, ring in hand, and proposed. I was totally surprised :)
I call that "the night you didn't propose" though he thinks that's silly since there are thousands of days he didn't propose :)

lol! Nora! Wow - you've had some moments haven't you? lol!

I have one more - very recent embarrassing moment. A young friend came over one evening to help me finish up cleaning out my closet (she's a 23 yr old from church that I invite over quite often - my kids love her and she's the "orphan" of our church so she hangs out with my family and a couple of others as well...) anyways... My bed is really squeaky and kept squeaking every time we bumped into it and I was commenting on how I hated my squeaky bed and couldn't wait to get rid of it... well, my 10 yr old DS comments, "Yeah, Ame! It's annoying! I hear it squeaking EVERY NIGHT and it keeps me awake!" Omg.... It took everything her and I had to not start busting up! lol! No need for him to know why right? lol - since then, I have gotten a NEW NON-squeaky bed, roflol!

OK, this is a good one. About 15 years ago, my sister and her little baby girl picked me up from work. We stopped and got an ice cream cone at DQ on the way to picking up her other daughter from school. About half a block later, we witnessed a terrible auto accident. We pulled over, and I checked out the people. One woman was unconscious, and bleeding from a terrible gash on the side of her head. So, I grabbed a diaper from Sissys diaper bag, and used that to apply pressure, and control the bleeding. The local news showed up, and they were filming me, and all of a sudden I realized why. Blood everywhere, I am holding this womans head, and still eating my ice cream cone. I about died! I threw it in the bushes, but it was too late. Nice way to be seen on the news, huh?

My most embarrassing story is when I was nearly nine months pregnant, I went in for a routine exam, and while my legs were in the stirrups, and my doctor was down checking me, I passed gas in his face. I was MORTIFIED!!!!!!!!!!!

07-19-2006, 01:41 PM
LOL, y'all are hilarious.

my most embarassing recent moment was when my 3 yr old ran into the room where my parents were sitting (while visiting t my house), did jazz hands, and yelled "who wants sex?"

we have really go to learn to watch what we say around him.

Charla
07-19-2006, 01:44 PM
Too funny, Rachel. Yours too, Paula. I would have been so mortified with either of those!

Leila

Ok, so this one didn't happen to me, but I was there, it was my 15th birthday and it happened to my mother...I was MORTIFIED!!!

On our birthdays, we kids got to choose which restaurant we'd like to eat it, it's a family tradition. So, as usual, I picked Wong's Chinese Palace--it's STILL my favorite restaurant back home. Anyway, we all hop in the van and head to Wong's. As we're heading over, my mom starts shaking her leg a bit. She says her jeans are unusually itchy that day, it must be the new detergent. Since it stops, none of us think any more of it until later when she starts up again. All throughout dinner my mom is shaking her leg and scratching at it as well. Then, after Dad's paid for the meal and we're walking up, Wong himself comes running up to my mother screaming, "Meesi Vohtee, Meesi Vohtee! You drop you undaway!" :embaresse My mother, the woman who firmly believes in wearing a pair of jeans at least three times before washing them forgot to remove her day old panties from them when she dressed that afternoon. Here it is nearly 17 years later and I'm still too embarrassed to face Wong!!!!!!!

These are all too funny.

I had one similar to Laura's. I worked with DH before we were married. We were really good friends, but had gone out for dinner and were talking about taking things to the next level. I had two drinks because I was really nervous, so I (being a lightweight in the drinking dept.) was really ditzy. We went out to get into his truck. I went to the passenger side and waited and waited. Tim finally came over to get me. I was at the wrong truck! He was waiting at the passenger door of his truck holding the door for me and couldn't figure out where I'd gone. I felt so stupid.

I also remember being in 8th grade and having a mad crush on this boy, Darin, who was in 9th. Darin came over to my house looking for my neighbor who always hung out at my house. We had a snippy little dog who was threatening to bite him, so I freaked out thinking how embarrassing it would be to have her bite him. I quickly picked her up and went to put her in the back yard. I stopped abruptly because my hair had gotten caught in a low-hanging tree branch. It wound around the branch and I couldn't get free. I had my arms full of the dog and had to stand there for several minutes before I could bring myself to admit that I was stuck and needed his help. He had to work around the dog to try and pull my hair out of the branch. I was embarrassed to say the least.
