    Friday OT - Your Embarrassing Stories

    Let's hear some stories where you embarrassed yourself (or someone else embarrassed you) in front of others. Did you fart in front of someone you were trying to date? Did your child do something or say something to embarrass you?

    I took a motorcycle safety course at DMACC with a friend just for fun. I knew I'd never actually drive a motorcycle by myself anywhere else, as I'm only a little over 5' and have no business riding a motorcycle. Anyway - it was a two-day course, and I was actually doing pretty well the first day, while my friend was frustrated that she was struggling. I was trying to make her feel better, which may have seemed crappy since I hadn't had any problems. By the end of Day 2, I was clearly out of my element. I didn't mind not passing the course, as I didn't need the license - but they had this whole ceremony thing with the whole class where they passed out the certifications, and I was the only one who didn't get one. It was embarrassing to have the whole room and the teachers looking at me with pity.

    Come on, someone needs to be willing to embarrass themselves besides me!

    Re: Friday OT - Your Embarrassing Stories

    I took a girl to my cousin's wedding when I was in college. My aunts wanted me to introduce her to them. I couldn't remember one of my aunt's name. I'm not talking for a few seconds -- I could NOT remember her name. Finally another aunt said it for me.

    I recognize faces from a dozen years ago, but I am just terrible with names. They are stored in some part of my brain that I apparently can't access until 20 minutes after I'm done seeing the person.

    I once wasn't the perfect human being. That was embarrassing. Good thing those days are past me.

    One other one. I was on a rock climbing trip with my friends and one of them had access to a cabin, which was where we spent the night. We were all drinking beer and watching this AWESOME movie (Sands of the Kalahari) and I had to pee. So I stepped outside and went over the porch rail. Little did I know that it in fact was NOT going over the rail. It was hitting the rail and splashing back on me. Luckily it was basically water, so no smell. But my buddies got a good laugh out of it.

    My calf laid down in the ring at the Linn Co Fair when I was 12. Wouldn't get up and my dad jumped the fence to help. Thanks Angie!

    You have to feel shame to be embarrassed. So I'm out.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Friday OT - Your Embarrassing Stories

    I was playing HS baseball in Boone once and hit one deep to left field, but it was right into the sun. I couldn't see it well, but it looked to me like the left fielder went back, but didn't make an effort to catch it. I actually thought the ump made the HR signal too. I was trotting around 2nd base before the shortstop informed me that I was out.

    Re: Friday OT - Your Embarrassing Stories

    I was talking to my German professors and our very cute language assistant at lunch one time during my freshman year about where I was planning on living next semester, and at that point in time I was thinking of maybe trying to get a program house where you live there and then do work in the community with some friends (who were girls). I had taken German since high school, and had always been told that the word for girl friend and the word for friend who's a girl were the same and the only way to tell is by context. That's not quite true. What I thought I was telling them was I was hopefully getting a house with some friends, what I was actually telling them was I was hopefully going to get a house for me and my harem. They started laughing and told me that was not what I meant to say. It wasn't a big deal and I'm glad I learned the difference, but it was really embarrassing at the time.

    I was really young when this happened but it still stands out. I was at a summer camp and each morning we'd assemble and they would parade the flag past everyone and stop in the middle as we recited The Pledge of Allegiance. We were supposed to be quiet, somber and respectful as the flag passed but one day me and my friend Mike decided to stand at attention and salute. Boy, did we think we were funny. We tried our best to contain it while everyone else was being quiet but pretty soon the snort laughs started coming out and eventually my face exploded -- I kid you not -- about a gallon of snot all over myself.

    That is so gross! I have to think snot would be the worst body byproduct to have a bunch of people see, other than poop. I've puked on myself a few times in public, which was totally embarrassing, but I think I'd prefer that to snot.

    Also, I peed all over myself in an airplane once. I'm tall and have trouble fitting into the front bathroom in some airplanes, so I was peeing all hunched over and leaning against the door when the plane hit some turbulence. That was not a fun flight.

    Re: Friday OT - Your Embarrassing Stories

    Im usually quiet and dont put myself out there so its worked out that I havent really embarrass myself too much.

    I did hit reply all with a smart *** comment at my last job. It was mild but the person I intended it to go to usually gets much worse from me so it could have been really bad. I even preach about the stupidity of hitting reply all, I think that made it worse. Everyone there got a good laugh though.

    Hahaha, I'm dreading that day when I accidentally hit reply all. I put a 60 second delay on my emails, and that's one of the reasons.
