What's the most embarrassing thing you've ever said or done?

Mine are the usual, ie, asked if someone was pregnant when not, asked if grandma when not and just last week, I accidentally spat on a man while I was talking to him, and one of my friends went to exit a taxi still wearing a seatbelt.

Dont worry I called mine 'babe'. As in "sure, no problems babe...".

And he is definitely NOT a babe. Nor the type that you could get away with calling him an an endearment!! I got the raised eyebrow indeed.

I was sitting on a stool at a packed nightclub once in the middle of a very public section that was overlooked by an upperdeck with lots of onlookers (dancefloor and band on the lower level).  I was wearing a long skirt and I went to stand up and was standing on the bottom of my skirt which stayed where it was while I stood up.  I completely dacked myself in a very, very public area and unfortunately I was also wearing a g-string.  Trust me when I say, nobody wanted to see that!!  blush.gif

Being asked to demonstrate a tumble-turn over parallel bars at school and farting mid turn- in front of my year 8 class!! I considered letting go and crashing onto my head just to avoid having to face the world after that. Amazingly the class didn't erupt in hysterical laughter- there was just stunned, horrified silence. Oh the shame!!

I could write a thesis on all the embarrassing things I have done. And since having kids, now they embarrass me too.

When DS 1 was a baby, I was BF him when there was a knock at the door. I thought it was my Nan, (we're close) so got up while still feeding. Opened the wooden door, it was a Johovah's witness.  DS chose that moment to unlatch, turn and projectile vomit through the screen door, while my now-baby-free nipple sprayed milk everywhere.  

We don't get religious doorknockers any more.  unsure.gif

My boss is my dad! My mum works there too, she didn't appreciate the "sleeping your way to the top" joke I made once... blush.gif

I spat an entire mouthful of wine over a co-worker at drinks once. Someone said something really funny just as I'd taken a drink and I accidentally inhaled it and started choking.

Introduced myself to a man at a conference only to have him say "Yes, we've met at [Blah-blah other conference]". Whoops! To be fair, I work in an industry dominated by middle aged men, so as a young female I'm a lot more memorable than a lot of people. That was still bad though!

Many moons ago living in Sydney our local railway station had an overhead bridge with some small shops on it. The cake shop was owned by a man who had only one arm and he used to manage amazingly well, handling cakes and money. One morning the shop was unusually busy and when it was my turn to be served I piped up with " Busy today isn't it, you look like you could use another hand".

When I was working (pre-kids), I had just started a new job in November, and there were heaps of the guys growing dodgy mo's for Movember.  We were joking about it in the lunchroom and one of the guys walked in and asked what we were laughing about, and I said, "Oh, just talking about how ridiculous you all look with your dodgy mo's. I bet you can't wait to shave it off so you can stop looking like a dodgy 70s cricket player? *snort*"

....except it turned out he had had his mo for several years.

Lol.  I was working in mental health, and someone asked me how my (very busy) day had been going.  "It's been nuts... I mean crazy... I mean...very busy."

I was 9 and still getting used to periods showing up every month...

Anyway, AF turned up heavily during class time one day and I leaked all over my light coloured school uniform, unfortunately I hadn't realised this until I had stood up in front of my class of 9 year olds and gone to the bathroom.  unsure.gif

Even today it makes me cringe thinking about it. I wanted to die!

Hmmm I was ticking off names for convention attendance and couldn't find a woman's name as I had stupidly forgotten my glasses. I said sorry, I'm blind as a bat without my glasses, just give me a minute I'm sure I'll find you...

Yeah, she was blind.

She laughed at me and said she knew the feeling, then I realized and I started laughing too, she was great.

Later we were outside smoking together and I called her an old bat, and she said yeah, the old blind bat! Whoops.

Got a bollocking from my supervisor who overheard me on the first and is one of those PC folk with no sense of humor.

Oh God G.K., that would have been traumatising. It also reminded me that I'd blocked out a similar story!

For mine, I had an unexpectedly heavy period on the day of a Children's Theatre Performance. I was playing a possum (called Possum - original, right?) and had a fairly heavy costume of overalls with a large, curly tail attached.

Because of the mechanics of trying to change dressing while in said heavy costume (I should have bloody stripped down to my undies but it was close to performance time and I was rushing), I got blood on the bottom of the overalls. I ended up in my knickers at the sink desperately washing my costume and then trying frantically to dry them under the hand dryer.

I ended up having to go on stage with the bottom half of my overalls wet, which as you can imagine all the kids found borking hilarious, while I was dying of shame. When the other actors asked me what had happened I told them I got makeup on my costume.

I still cringe thinking about that performance sad.gif

Oh I've done too many things to count, but I think I've been pretty good lately, mostly because I've been at home more so less opportunity to embarrass myself.

One of the more memorable instances for me was when I was about 18 and learning to drive. I was trying to drive out of an Aldi parking lot with my mum - I noticed there was no car in the space in front of me so thought I'd just drive straight through rather than reverse out. Didn't realise there was a concrete hump separating the spaces until I ran into it. Startled a few old ladies in the car park, that's for sure.

More recently I was on a work retreat at the beach, got hit by a wave, and it wasn't until I stood up out of the water that I realised my boobs had fallen out of my tankini. I don't know if anyone saw but there were children at that beach and I pray none of them were blinded. That was the first and last time I wore that particular swimsuit.

During a one night stand we got to the bed and were kissing and about to get to the good stuff, I though I was being so smooth and sexy. I went to get on top but must have put too much oomf into it and sailed straight over the guy and off the bed onto the floor.


My other was the cliche toilet paper stuck in skirt/ undies and walking out of toilets. Except it was about 50metres of loo paper, I don't even know how that happens! I had to bundle up a huge armful and return to toilets.

Every time DH and I hang up the phone we finish the conversation with, "Bye, I love you." One day at work he'd had to call me a few times more than usual. My next phone call was a customer, and when I hung up from him I slipped out with, "Bye, I love you."

I was working at Centerlink.

And I never did get any awards for my awesome customer service lol.

When I was 16 I saw a guy I liked downtown. I stopped to talk to him and my shoe flew off. I had to go chase it, while trying to act cool. I never spoke to him again after that.

At a conference dinner (when I had polished off more wine that was good for me!) I put a postit note saying "space for rent" in my cleavage and went and talked straight faced to the organisation's CEO.
He sent a bottle of wine over to our table with a big grin (but kept his distance!)

I never felt comfortable talking to him after that, especially as he always remembered my name. Way to make myself memorable in an organisation!

Do you remember the late 80's early 90's when those bodysuits with poppers in the crotch area were in fashion?
In a nightclub, worse for wear, Starboard comes out of the bathroom and proceeds to throw some funky shapes on the dancefloor. After frantic waving from bestie ( I thought she was dancing...), I realise that although I have done my jeans up, my undone bodysuit is flapping all over the place.
Ruined my dance routine I tell you.
