I thought that we could have a good laugh and write some of our most embarrassing moments.
I'll start, I am in England at the moment for my vacay and I met up with one of my grandad's friends, and he invited me to go swimming with him early in the morning for the next day at this indoor swimming pool for mostly eldery people but younger people may come if they would like. Anyhow, while getting dressed I decided to put my bra under my bathing suit because I didn't have enough room in my bag at the moment. So, when I arrive at the pool, I took off my clothes and went to go into the pool, 10-20mins later ( after being introduced to pretty much EVERYONE at the pool) I realize while talking to a man that I had forgotten to take off my bra and was swimming with it on with my bathing suit on top. I felt like a complete idiot!! I took my bra off in the pool and put it off to the side of the pool and the whole time this HOT life-guard was staring at me and here I am thinking he is checking me out but that wasn't the case at all, he probably was just thinking how stupid I looked. lol
Well, hope you got a bit of a good laugh with my moment today. Hope to read some of yours.

Oh, how awkward! I'm sure that lifeguard was checking you out. A girl removing her bra in the pool must have been the highlight of his day! Don't worry, they must have thought it was some sort of odd North American trend ;)
I embarrassed myself recently. I have been raving about my new favourite cookbook for some time and recently met the author, celebrity chef David Rocco at an Italian cafe on my first visit. I introduced myself and said I'd like to interview him for the site.
The next time I was in Yorkville, I popped by the cafe again in between meetings. I ordered an espresso macchiato, which is an espresso with a dollop of foam on the top. It comes in an espresso cup. As is the nature of this tiny cafe, you end up talking to the other patrons. It was a police man and one other guy. We were all laughing and joking and then who walks in again but David Rocco. I was really surprised to see him again since this was only my second visit to the cafe and it's not like he works there. What a coincidence! I reintroduced myself but he said he remembered me and my rambling story about loving his cook book and coming to this cafe because of the Italian cafes he talked about in the book.
The 4 of us were all laughing and talking amiably when he paused the conversation and kindly said, "I don't mean to embarass you, but there is something on your nose. I just thought you might want to know" I turned around to the mirror behind me in horror and discovered brown crema from my espresso on the tip of my nose and the corners of my mouth. I looked like such an idiot. I laughed and rubbed it off and everyone was good natured about it, but I'm sure my face was flaming red as I soon after left the cafe.
He was really nice about it and I'm glad he told me so I didn't get on the subway like that! I think most people would have just stared at the mess on my face and let me look stupid all over town.

LOL MC ..i can imagine that must have been embarassing! But I'm sure the guys including the author was more impressed by how you laughed it off :) lots of people lack the ability to laugh at themselves.

Oh my gosh, these are funny stories! I have many embarrassing moments, though most of them are "you had to be there" kind of things. I wrote about one last year on the site blog, and so I don't have to regurgitate it here for those who have already read it, I suggest you check out this link.
I will try to think of more though. Great thread!!

well, we were playing powderpuff football senior year, and as usual, guys from the football team were our coaches. Now the night before our practice it had rained and it left the field we were on in a muddy mess, which makes it a perfectg time for running right?! Well, needless to say, I fell face first into the mud in front of the offensive line up and my crush at the time. yay me!!!
|All Tied Up on Aug 04, 2009 @ 05:13 pm|
When this happened three months ago I was a raving madwoman but now I can laugh about it. My final project for my high school video club was to make a half hour movie. I wrote the script, directed it and starred. I'm a perfectionist so I had everything planned to the second. For my big climax I was to be kidnapped, bound and gagged but long before we got to that things deteriorated. My pals didn't take it all so seriously and I had to resort to yelling to get them to pay attention and follow the script. The more frustrated I got the more bossy I got and I must have been a real pain. So comes my big scene I dump a bag of cords on the floor, sit on a chair, put my hands behind my back and tell them to tie me up. I wanted this to look real but they're doing a botched up job and I knew if I so much as twitched when the camera began rolling the ropes would fall off. Finally I shouted, Dammit, can't you make this tighter? Well they did. I could hardly breath but I didn't want to complain so I sat there as they bound me from my shoulders to my ankles. I was wearing a bright red sweater and by the time they finished the only red that was visible was my boobs. This scene was only supposed to be a minute and a half so I gave some instructions, told them how to gag me with the kerchief and then we were all set.
But they all walked away. We were in the rec room of my house, my parents were away, I heard doors slam and then absolute quiet. I didn't think they'd really leave me like this but after five minutes I started to get nervous, began squirming but couldn't get loose. Now I was becoming angry, I almost knocked over the chair and tried screaming through the gag, I was sure they had gone, did not want my parents to return and find me like this and was working myself into a lather. Of course they hadn't left but they let me squirm for about 15 minutes before returning to finish the film. By then I was fuming and thoroughly embarrassed but I did get an 'A' for the project.
