    Most embarrassing moment?

    Another version of get to know you. We are all friends here and therefore have no shame I think it would be funny to share our most embarrassing moments.

    Ok, here is mine to start with.

    I was acting in a one-act play in high school and we decided to take it to our state one- act competition. It was a very abstract piece about a boy with autism. His parents kept taking him to doctors and trying to figure out how to fix him, but in the end they just need to let him ne who he is. The play is seen from the child's point of view. It was a very powerful piece and was not done in a literal way (the dialogue was full of Dr. Suess type rhymes, chanting, etc.- the staging was also done with large blocks) basically it was non- realistic. This is important to emphasize the magnitude of the embarrassment.

    So we get through the first day of competition with flying colors and do very well (one of the judges was a director of mine from community theater, so maybe that had something to do with it). The part I was playing was a doctor and then a classmate of the little boy. The second day of competition was not so good. One of the judges comes in and talks with you after you perform. So the judge the second day was a theatre student from ASU. Very um, well, a word I can't use here. She directs a question to the cast "how old is the child suppossed to be?" we tell her, about 8 since they are in third grade. And she says (in front of like 10 people, most of them male) "yeah I found it really hard to believe that someone with bigger breasts than me could be 8" This is completely directed at me. Keep in mind that I am 17 and the other actor playing an 8 year old was 6'2" 250 pounds. He is believable, but I am not. I was speechless. It was one of those moments you run over again and again in your head and each time you have something cool and evil to say to the person. I just cried when she left and everyone was too shocked to confront her.

    Now I am no Dolly Parton, but to have it pointed out like that. It was horrible. We didn't even place in the competion and the stupidest play I have ever seen won. All because of some female penis envy.

    Ok, so lets hear it. It will be cathartic.

    We need to pick just one story?? Ok, I tend to put my foot in my mouth on several occassions when not thinking things carefully like I normally try to do. This one time at dinner with another couple, we were discussing a friends engagement ring, and I was attempting at describing the shear ugliness and gaudyness of the ring. The moment was building up to me saying, "..And get this!! It has bagetts on top of it!!", to which she handed out her hand displaying her ring quit similar to the one that I was just describing and said, "oh, you mean like this?". Doh. I have many more foot in the mouth stories...

    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"

    I do embarassing stuff all the time - I'm a total klutz.

    I don't have one big embarassing moment that sticks out... just little stuff, like walking into doors, pouring drinks down the front of me, spilling a gallon of chocolate syrup down the front of myself and my manager at work ... my personal favorite? The time I ran through my friend's screen door and it went flying off into their neighbor's yard. I had good momentum on that one.

    Don't worry DQ and Cuzco - I stick my foot in my mouth all the time... luckily, all my friends and family know this, so they usually don't take anything personally.

    Oh, i'm a total klutz too! (says so in my profile). I ALWAYS end up spilling something on my clothes. Never fails! My friends want to buy me a bib. I try to buy dark and cheap clothing just BECAUSE of my klutzyness. Sheesh.

    I tried to get into the wrong car at the grocery store. Same make, model, color, year as mine - there's not too many Saturns with the purple/black paintjob. I couldn't understand Why my key wasn't opening the door...and on top of everything SOMEBODY had stolen my Mickey Ball.....ohmannnn - I looked up and saw my car 2 rows over and slunk over Very quickly. Since then, I make sure that I check out the license plate before I try to stick my key in the door.


    War is over if you want it...

    We just got a new car and I am NEVER allowed to drive it. My hubby always drives, and lately we have been carpooling on days that I would have gotten the car. We were driving home from mu in-laws house and my MIL had made the comment that I should get to drive more. So on the way, hubby pulled over and let me drive. My vision is pretty bad and I hate driving at night, and I have never driven home from his parents before, so I was a total paranoid driver the whole time. After we got off the interstate, we drove through all these tiny town where the speed limit changes every five feet. And yep, you guessed it- after all my fuss and complaining about never driving, I got a speeding ticket- MY FIRST EVER!!!!!! Stupid small town cops with nothing to do.....

    My senior year of high school, I was on the soccer team. We were playing against one of our two rival schools and the score was 0-0 I think. I was playing defense and our goalkeeper had just got the ball so I ran down the field so he could kick it out, unfortunately the wind was strong and going straight the other way, so he kicked the ball out to me, and I tried to collect the ball, but the wind had knocked the ball down in the air, so I ran back to catch up to it, rather than me just knocking the ball down, it ended up hitting my knee and the ball went right back to my goalkeeper and the wind carried straight over his head into the net. I just dropped to my knees in embarassment, my coach thankfully subbed for me so I got off the field, but as I walked back the other team all thanked me for scoring for them. Thankfully my team ended up winning the game still. Though in all of my years of playing soccer, that was the only goal I ever scored and it was for the other team.

    Did something similar......only it wasn't the wrong vehicle, but rather the wrong apartment.

    I was up on the third floor of the building I used to live in with a girlfriend, just checking out the view around sunset. When I decided to go back in, my brain simply shut down. I walked to the place where my apartment would have been had I walked down one flight of steps to the second floor where I actually lived. But alas, I was still on the third floor, and tried to open a locked door.

    Now my GF at the time had a habit of locking the door whenever she came in, whether or not I was inside. It annoyed me. I was always walking into a locked door. I'd figured she'd come home early and I didn't see her.

    Angrily, I pounded on the door and shook the knob violently. Well, a very stern-faced man opened the door. "Can I help you??" he demanded.

    My jaw was on the floor, and I could only mouth the words "I'm Sorry". I don't think my vocal cords actually provided any sound. I slowly backed away, went down to the right floor, and avoided the third floor of that building for about a year.
    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    I just bought a used Lumina. Only had it a few days, I went to the grocery store and parked in the front row. When I came out I saw a truck had parked next to me and then I saw a big long scrap along the side of my car. I looked at the truck and sure enough there was white paint on his bumber. I walked away and called my boyfriend and told him to come down. I waited for the driver of the truck to come out. When he did, he looked at my car and then started to get in his truck. I confronted him and started yelling about how he was just gonna leave and look what he did to my car and blah blah blah. Well during this, my boyfriend showed up, looked at the car and started laughing. It wasnt my car. (My car was one more spot over.) Needless to say I was bright red. But then I thought, well, this man was gonna leave on someone else and started yelling again. Then he showed me the pen and paper he had gotten to write the license # down to have the person in the store paged. This is when I finaly shut up and got in MY car and left.

    Just one of my worst moments.

    I've told this story so many times I should have a printed copy of it to save me on typing-

    Years ago I was working at a fast food place (Chick-fil-A) for fun and profit. I ran the drivethrough because I was wicked fast and accurate.
    It was the holidays, and I was tucked away in the drivethrough with my santa hat on, when the headpiece beeped in my ear.
    "Happy Holidays! Thank you for choosing Chick-fil-A- this is Cassandra, how can I help you?"

    A mans voice came back to me - "Well Cassandra, I'm going to need a sec"

    Without a pause I perkily responded "Sure, you can have all the secs you wants, just let me know when you're ready!"

    Now, if you have read the above statement aloud- well....it suddenly struck me what I had just said to this total stranger. I hit the headpiece button and hear him laughing up a storm.

    Weakly I say "I can't believe I just said that...."

    He drove around to the window, and was still busting up. He told me he could not wait to tell his wife. I wanted to curl up and die from the mortification.

    Of course, I foolishly opened my mouth and told my co-workers what had happened. From then on they would ask if I had been offering "secs" to customers.

    I was too tired to be really embaressed but still.
    Last year my husband and I was in Paris on vacation. We were travelling with a very good friend of ours. In order to save costs we always share a room. One night I got up to pee, I make it out there ok, but on my way back to the bed I start climbing into the wrong bed (the room is completely dark) suddenly a voice asks me what I am doing.... And it is not my husbands.....
    "sorry wrong bed" i say as I move along to my own.
    Now it helps a bit that our friend is gay, so there was no way he would think I did it on purpose, but still... :o
    You say Im a bitch like its a bad thing.

    London BABY!!

    OK, this was pretty embarrassing. I always take my car to the same place tp have it serviced, and one afternoon I took it in and there was a new guy at the counter. As I always do, I handed him my keys and asked him to take my key off the ring for me, because I have long nails that break easily. He gives me this kind of blank look and then starts trying to get my key off the ring, and that's when I notice his left arm ends in a stump. Poor guy only had one hand and I DIDN'T EVEN NOTICE. I felt like such a jerk, and I tried to take the key back to do it myself, but he waved me off. After about five minutes of struggling, he managed to get the key off the ring, but I've never felt like such a jerk in my life.

    I was really preoccupied one night while running errands, I ran into the story while my hubby waited in the car, I went about my errand, got into a little mood over some (long since forgotten) comment the checker made. and stormed back to our car. Oh I was PO'd and just wanted to vent, so I opened the passenger door, climed in and started ranting, while I fumbled with the seat belt....suddently I here this man say who the hell are you? I looked at my husband only to discover that I am in the wrong car, my hubby is 2 cars down. I tried to be ery cool about climbing back out of the car but there was no recoviring from that moment.....
    ...by the time I got back to my car my husband is Laughing, he saw the whole thing.


    ...Yeah, that was emmbarassing
