I was at a debate tournament in 10th grade when the guy I then liked came to visit me. We laughed about something but because of my conestion, I blew out a HUGE snot bubble that everyone saw, including him, and I was mortified!!

Thankfully, I got over it and Fwbf would probably have tried to pop it had I done it in front of him

ETA: My other one was walking into the glass doors at a store in the mall. One was open, one was closed. I walked into the closed one and just like in the movies, my face unattractively smashed into it, I froze and then I fell back onto the ground from the impact. Made for a great laugh though!

My most embarrassing moment was when I decided to become a teacher and proudly announced to the world that I was going into Education!

*sorry bad day at work*

My brother and I were running for the train and I slipped and fell right at the door and slid across the train on my knees for all of morning rush hour to see...that is one of many.

ETA: I was around 15...

Mo3k, I trip too! I trip over myself more often than not.. And people ask me all the time, "I thought you were a dancer?" My reply is usually, "Yes, I was just practicing right now.."

Let's see...

I've called a boss "Daddy"
I've tucked my skirt into the back of my pantyhose and then stood in the hallway talking to a coworker as other coworker passed by and didn't say a word.
I was having an argument with my then BF (now X) wherein he used a racial slur; I was enraged and blurted out, "What do you mean you feel like a xxxxxxxxx" in front of a restaurant full of patrons (and he proceeded to chastize me for using the slur )
My entire family got in the wrong car after church one Sunday morning.
I was (much) less than gracious when then BF gave me an old rug for Christmas-in front of his whole family (my present--skis--were rolled up inside the old rug.)
I was reciting what thought was a funny poem in front of my class and everyone was laughing hysterically. Turns out my wrap-around skirt had unwrapped...

That's all I can remember right now

I was a new nurse working in ICU, and they came in to do an emergent chest exray on a very sick patient. The Rad Tech left the big box part that they position to it up and hanging out, I walked smack dab, head on into it. Almost knocked myself out!!!! Everyone else looked at me like I was an idiot for not seeing it. In typical ADHD fashion I was thinking of the next 6 things I needed to do.

tushnurse, I am finishing the prerequisite courses to apply to nursing school but I'm so clumsy that I'm afraid I'll walk into things and end up hurting a patient!!!

Sad OMG, thank you for the belly laughs this afternoon!

Years ago when I lived in FL, I walked through a crowded beach restaurant, down the beach, and to the edge of the water with a four foot long toilet paper tail hanging out from under my swimsuit cover-up.

I love this thread.

When I was a junior in high school, I was strutting my stuff in the cafeteria, and I slipped on some grilled onions someone had tossed on the floor. I skidded about 10 ft on my ass, and when I stood up, the onions were plastered all over my butt. And not one of my "friends" told me.

Unagie posted 4/8/2013 14:15 PM

I thought I was all cute walking in the train one day. My brother called me, I was 18 or 19 at this point which puts him around 23 or 24 so we are adults...loosely adults. Anyway he calls me and tells me he can see me from the next car. I remember I had these cream stiletto boots on and I get off my car and run onto his on the next stop. The train starts moving and I'm walking down the train car towards him when the train jerks and I go straight to my knees..I manage to keep a hold on the pole though lol. My "adult" brother then begins to point and laugh like we were 5 years old again. He has never let me live this down.

Or when I was in junior high and I went on stage to present a poem and fell on stage tripping over the microphone wire. My mother was a smart woman and looked away acting like she didn't see or else I probably would have cried.

Or when I thought I was alone in our apt one day and came out the bathroom without a stitch of clothing on after a shower (I left my clothes in the bedroom) and came face to face with one of SO's friends who he'd brought home so him and had failed to tell me was there.

There's more if I dig...

In the 8th grade I was giving an oral science report and said "orgasm" instead of "organism". The whole class was laughing - think 25 13 year olds. I was wondering what they were laughing about. Afterwards my gf told me what I said. At my 30th HS reunion that still came up (no pun intended).

Freshman year of college, borrowed my friend's car while he was out of town for spring break. Went to the grocery store. Put the car in park, locked the doors and went into the store. Bought groceries, came outside, couldn't find keys. Look into window of car... notice car is vibrating slightly... realize car is still running... see keys in ignition... Proceed to freak out.

This was before I had a cell phone, so I went inside and asked the store manager what to do, he suggested AAA. I was freaking out. Went back outside to think. Saw another couple in the lot with a flat tire, with a AAA guy helping them change it. Flirted with the AAA guy after he finished with their tire and he jimmied the door for me. Drove home.

Told my friend who owned the car about it 2 years later.

Oh, another one, while my friend Jimmy and I were crashing a wedding (long story) last year, dancing, my halter top dress came untied. Jimmy didn't miss a beat, spun me around, grabbed the side that was falling, and pulled it back up as he spun me. It was crazy. I managed to get it tied again while still on the dancefloor.

ETA: Actually, getting yelled at by the venue manager at that wedding was pretty embarrassing too, but one of the waitresses told us later that the bride and groom thought it was awesome that they had wedding crashers and wanted a picture with us, but we'd already been run off.

Wow, if I kill this thread, that'll be pretty embarrassing too

I joined a gym right after college. To make membership easier on us poor young folks, the gym offered "1 pay, 2 pay, 3 pay, or 4 pay" plans. Since I was waaaay poor, I told the super hunky beefed up dude at the front desk that I wanted the "foreplay". Then I turned red from head to toe.

Eeeesh...his eyes about popped outta his head before he smirked...It was pretty horrible. Since I couldn't poof right then, I kinda hoped that maybe I would never see him again. Nope...he was there at the front desk. Every.Flippin.Day.

When I was in college, my mom thought it would be cute to give me some "fun" panties for Christmas. It was a set of 4 or 5 pair with little Christmas trees, bells, etc, all over them and a holiday saying across the butt. (Cheers, Jingle, etc) My senior year, we had community health clinicals and had to wear light blue twill pants. I dressed in a hurry one morning and never thought about what panties I had grabbed until one of my classmates came up behind me saying, "Ho, ho, ho!" So I was walking around all day wiht "Ho, Ho, Ho" across my butt. I thought about turning them inside out, so the writing would be less vivid, but then I realized it would say "Oh, Oh, Oh" and that would be even worse.

I can't even tell you how many times I have fallen in public. It's not even embarrassing anymore. I just jump up, throw my arms out and say, "Wanna see me do that again?"

Most recently, I had multiple bags of groceries in my hand in a downpour. I was driving JM's truck, and decided I would make a really smooth move and open the door,jump in and close the door all in one move.

Uh huh. That's the way it was supposed to work. Except when I flung the door open and went to spring into the seat, I realized there was a man sitting behind the wheel, talking on his cell phone. Yeah, cuz it was HIS truck, not mine. He asked me if I was coming with him and I said, "No, not tonight. Thanks, though!" And slunk away in the rain.

And last, but not least, one of the first weekend JM stayed with me when we were dating, he arrived on a Friday afternoon. My now 21yo ds (5 yo at the time) was taking a nap. So we decided to use the time to our advantage. We were in the bedroom, um, fully involved, when we heard JM's sister OUTSIDE OUR BEDROOM DOOR, saying, "Hello? Hello? Are you in there?"

DS had woken up, and let her in when she knocked at the door because he knew her. OMG was I mortified. She never would tell us how long she'd been there.

Not my moment...but since I was in the scene I can share it.

YEARS AGO....Paul Newman was in town to film a movie. My mom takes me to see him when he gets to town center.

Crowds of ppl and I can't see him cause I am tooo little. So my mom puts me on her shoulders and runs to the front of the roped off area so I can see. Paul looks over and smiles a big smile at my mom.

Hey - she was hot back in the day so she was taking it all in (blush, smile, wink).

Paul leaves and crowd is dying down. She goes to get me off of her shoulders and realized the buttons on the front of her silk disco blouse (hey it WAS the seventies) had all come un-done. Paul was REALLY grinning at my mom's exposed frontage.

Edited...guess those old blue eyes got an eyeful that day!

Hmm... so many to choose from...

I once was looking down at a chart and exclaimed to a patient "hey you've lost 35 lbs since I saw you last!" I look up and he is glaring at me while sitting on the table with his crutches and his above the knee amputation from diabetes! Oopsie!
