Most embarrassing moment...

19 posts in this topic

My first year in highschool my friend tricked me into being a cheerleader (That's another story)

Well once I got drafted unwittingly, I was going to my first game and this same friend convinced me to change in the back hall computer room. No one but the other cheerleaders would go back there so I thought it was ok. She left to go get the others and left me to change.

 

I told myself that all I needed to do was get undressed and dressed quickly. Until, I heard a knock at the door and a guy from my math class walked in on me partially naked. I of course being the queen of dumbfoundedness stood there making full eye contact before hiding behind the computers just as he raised his hands and walked away.

 

I don't remember if it was awkward after that, but we never talked to each other.

I once had a big speech to do for one of my college classes. The computer with my power point on it malfunctioned half way through and completely shut off, and wouldn't turn back on. I looked up to a whole lecture hall full of people staring at me and giggling at my reaction, as I probably looked like a deer in headlights. I was able to improvise the rest of it though, but it wasn't that great as a result.

I was on the color guard (like marching band cheerleading, for the layman) and I was changing in the locker room, because the guard girls were the only ones in the band room... Or so we thought! One of the drumline walked in and saw me and a couple of other members in various stages of undress. There is only so much surface area a girl can cover with her hands :/

 

I can't look him in the eyes to this day.

I'm not even sure which one to choose. There was the time I did a film review in front of the class when I was 14, and I was so nervous that my legs were visibly shaking and wobbling and try as I might, there was NOTHING I could do to stop them, and people were laughing and I was laughing a little xD but I powered through and managed to finish it.

There was another time I had flu and my eyes were itchy and streaming with water or tears or whatever, but I had important exams so I had to come into school. I decided to try and hold them back and kept drying them with tissues, but I ran out as I got to where the entire year was lined up to go into the exam and I was scared the water would just come flowing out. The Deputy Head Teacher, a fierce and rather intimidating woman, saw I was late and yelled at me and I flinched and water came streaming out of my eyes and everyone was like "omg he's such a wuss" and the Deputy Head was like "are you okay?" and I was like "Yeah, I just have flu" and the teachers escorted me over to the side like something was wrong with me lol and I was like "I'm fine, can I please do the exam?" and they made me do the exam in a room by myself lol. And afterwards everyone was like "Hey you're the boy who was crying the other day" and I was like "Yeah, sometimes you just gotta let it out" lool but even though I joked about it, I was still embarassed xD

The time I still played soccer we had a girl in our team, despite being a girl, she was better than most boys in our team. After a match, I, as always, remained with 2 other friends in the dressing room. The girl of our team had to say something to our trainer, she asked if she could enter. I was the only one still naked, and the other 2 friends said that it's okay to come in. Then BAM, she enters the room, looking at me while I'm completely naked, they even hid my towel and underwear. The worst part is, she didn't mind, she just started talking to our trainer as if nothing's happened hile I was desperately trying to search something to cover me.

Hahaha I haven't really had anything like these stories happen to me before. I think the most embarrassing things for me have just been my bikini top coming off after a wave hit me. I put it back on pretty quickly though, so I don't think anyone saw. And even if they had, it wouldn't bother me that much. lol

A lot of my embarrassment moments involve me falling.

I think I was in grade 11 when this happened. Let me set the scene for everyone. *clears voice* it was a chilly winter morning. The ground was covered in a white blanket of snow. I was walking to school and my boots had no grip. Well as you can probably tell I end up slipping on hidden ice. I fell as if I was breakdancing. And if that wasn't enough I had worn a skirt and my shorts were exposed ( good thing I was wearing shorts). A man came up to me and asked if I was ok. I could not look him in the eye. He reached out his hand to help me but I just stayed on the ground. I was so embarrassed!

I had just gotten my permit and was getting out of a tight parking spot. I couldn't figure out how to best get out. An old lady like 75 80 years old told me exactly how to turn my steering wheel and helped me get out. I'm embarrassed cuz a MAN as young as myself should have been able to handle ANY driving situation by himself without the help of others, especially by a SENIOR CITIZEN!

Lmao. I think break dancing is the worst when your not prepared for it. My body has busted a few moves walking in the ice and snow in my hometown.

Too many to mention. Embarrasment follows me around ;) I am still too embarrased to mention my worst embarrasment cause it makes me look so stupid. It basically involved me asking a stupid question at a very very bad timing! I might tell someone on PM if they really want to know.

Tell me! Tell me please! :P  My stupid question story: In 9th grade I was in French class and the teacher literally just said that we would have a quiz on Friday. But I was daydreaming and didn't hear her, so I raised my hand and asked when the next quiz would be. She stood in front of my desk and started scolding me in rapid French, while I sat there with no idea what she was saying.  :wacko:

Once, in Spanish class I forgot how to say cheese. I had been studying Spanish for three years! The whole class laughed, and the teacher just shook his head.

I can't think of any. I'm so careful about not embarrassing myself. I may be too careful. That's why you can often find me in the corner not saying a word. Which can be embarrassing when someone asks, "why don't you talk?" :P 

 

I'll get one soon since I am making myself get out there more. haha

Okay, here goes nothing.

I played softball in highschool, this was my senior year. I was on the varsity team and we were at an all weekend tournament. I was up to bat, and my coach gave me the sign to bunt. So I laid the most perfect bunt down, but for some reason my legs did not want to move. I tried so hard to run to first base, I tripped and fell. But then I got up and some how made it to first base without being out :o. This was so embarrassing, I didn't know what to say to my teammates when I got back to the dugout. My coach said I just got so excited my legs didn't want to move.

I am the proud survivor of countless embarrassing moments. Just the other day I was at this conference headed by the most eminent and respected professor of law in my country. I have had the good fortune of meeting him in person (much to the envy of my colleagues at work) because he was the consultant to our firm in a case involving a client of mine.

 

I had his mobile number saved as “Prof….†and he had mine because he spoke to me quite a few times to get information for his case. Well the case was won and we had no need for further contact but I did not delete his number because I wanted to remind myself that I had once spoken to the great Prof.... and also to gloat over my mates at work - like I was the only one who had his number and all that.

 

After the conference, I was supposed to meet up with a friend for lunch and I was already an hour late. I typed her a quick text that went like this, “Hi luv, the boring stuff is finally over. Let’s eat!!!†and hit ‘send’. My friend’s name is Prashasti and in my hurry, guess who I had sent it to…. I was suicidal after I discovered my friend never got the message.

I basically have one every day, they usually involve an ironic foot in the mouth. Sometimes I can play it off as intentional, so, I just kind of roll with whatever I say. Like, if I accidently say an innuendo, out of naivety, I'll act like it's on purpose, instead of just me being stupid. I just try.

Hm, the most embarrassing story that I'm willing to share involves my mom labeling my underwear when I went to summer camp. I was in my early teens, so, just imagine the potential problems. At least they were mailed back to me. So embarrassing...

Okay I might share my second most embarrasing moment at least..... It was a time when I was desperate for a date and after befriending a girl at church she invited me out of her own initiative shortly after for coffee at her house. So after church one morning I followed her to her house and spent there for a long while drinking coffee and talking. That week afterwards I tried to talk more to her on Mxit but she was quiet and took long to answer my messages. I felt down and depressed about it and by the end of the week I was talking to a friend about her. I typed a message intended for my friend saying "this girl in church I told you about invited me for coffee the weekend and now all of a sudden she became quiet". I sent it but as the message went through my heart sank as I realized I accidently sent it to her. It didn't go through to her immediately and I contacted the admin immediately to see if they can stop the message but to no avail. I was on my way home from work and was praying that the message wouldn't go through. When I came home she saw the message and she was upset that I said something like that.
