        Giving a seminar when I thought people were responding heartily to my jokes and poignant points. Only after well into the seminar I found there was a six-sheet length of toilet paper stuck to my right shoe that was waving at my audience with every step on the stage.

          Ha ha! That's a pretty good one. It's a little embarrassing but mostly it's just really funny!

        Mine was when I walked right into a pole in the main downtown shopping area of our small town.

        RE: Wearing your clothes inside out...don't laugh and you don't have to be embarrassed if you try this...it is actually the most comfortable thing on earth to wear your socks inside out. Because there are no seams and the weave follows your foot and feels silky. Try it. I think you will like it.

    Wearing two different pairs of shoes to a school field trip. Thankfully, nobody noticed and I didn't until I took them off that day. That's what I get for putting on my shoes in the dark.

      How can you wear two pairs of shoes at the same time? You'd have to have four feet!

      I can't tell my most embarrassing moment. It wouldn't be polite in mixed company.

    I was once crossing the High Street and noticed a woman with a white stick in one hand and a child of around 3 holding her other hand. She'd reached the middle of the road, but I couldn't imagine how a blind person could get accross the other half with so many lorries roaring along it.

    Nipping nimbly through the traffic, I took her arm and reassured her that she, and her child, were now in safe hands.

    She looked at me in complete astonishment, at which point I realised the white stick was in fact a length of curtain rail!

    She told me, firmly, she was perfectly capable of crossing the road, and wished I was as eager to help her put up her curtains!

    I really felt stupid.

      in my early 20's I attended an office party. I proceeded to drink far too many cocktails on an empty stomach and got quite drunk. In my drunken state I told my supervisor what I really thought of her, I had to be helped to the washroom, was carried out and driven home by God knows who. The next day, I walked into the office and had to endure the stares and whisperings of my co-workers. I quit that job 2 weeks later.

      Now that I'm much older and wiser, I no longer drink to get drunk or on an empty stomach...and I mostly stay away from the hard stuff...a glass or 2 of red wine is about all I generally drink nowadays.

      ps: I've been self-employed since 1997 and have never been happier then getting out of that office environment where the majority of staff back-stab each other!

      I don't know if it the most embarassing moment, but a year or so ago I went to the store and the bank wearing my cheap sunglasses the whole time. When I came home I stuck my hand in my pocket and pulled out one of the lenses for the sunglasses. I took them off and realized I had been walking around the whole time with only one lense. Duh.

    Wow, I'm sure I've had a lot of moments that should have been embarrassing but I just didn't care. One moment that should have been really embarrassing was when my pants fell off while I was dancing in a talent competition in front of the school. It's a good thing I had a leotard on underneath.

    Here are my 2 (most recent) embarassing moments...

    The first happened 9 or 10 years ago, when I was skiing with a bunch of friends and decided to 'show off', so I took a jump, went about 25' vertical, landed directly on my tailbone, and ended up with 2 compressed fractured disc's in my mid/lower back.

    Yea... that was quite embarassing being taken off the mountain (after making such an ass out of myself) in that humiliating sled (in front of all my friends) behind the ski-patrol, and then, to make things even worse, on the way to the hospital, the ambulance almost got into an accident, they had to slam on their brakes, and the contraption they had me strapped to wasn't very secure... I had another 'fun ride' in the ambulance... I hit my head quite hard when I was lurched forward against my will, with my hands strapped down, so I couldn't block my skull instinctually from injury. Maybe that's what's wrong with me? lol

    The second, most recent embarassing moment that nearly took my life was last winter, when I was working as a snowmaker, I decided that I was cocky enough to take a snowmobile up a double black diamond trail that we were making snow on.

    My bad.

    It did not turn out well.

    600lbs of snow-machine does not feel good rolling on top of you, going up in the air, 5-6 feet, then slaming back down on top of you multiple times, tumbling down a mountain. (I couldn't walk proper, by myself, for 3 weeks after that one...and a few of my friends were there to witness my stupidity... how embarassing...)

    Lesson(s) learned.

    I'm sitting here pondering/wondering what my next most embarassing moment will be... if history does in fact repeat itself, I'm in for a doosey for the next one...

      Well, this episode occurred during the first gas crisis in 1973. I had a job where I went around to all the car lots and dealerships in the area and installed vinyl tops on cars. When gas got scarce, my boss put a 55 gallon drum in the back of my pick-up truck with a hose connecting the drum to the real gas tank.

      The drum, laid on its side, had a roughly 3" diameter capped opening at the highest part of the drum at mid-point. I would unscrew the cap, fill the drum, and then recap it. When my gas tank got low, I would open up a valve and gravity fill the gas tank with the fuel from the 55 gallon drum. At least that was how the theory went when my boss put the drum in the back of my truck.

      As it turned out, the garden faucet that was attached near the bottom of the drum wouldn't seal sufficiently to keep the gas from slowly draining into the real gas tank. So as I drove around, my gas tank stayed full, and the 55 gallon drum slowly emptied. But I wasn't aware this was going on at first.

      So one day, I get called to do a job out in the middle of nowhere in a small country town that happened to have a Chrysler dealership. The long drive in the country was fine until I decided to pull over and refill my now empty gas tank with the 55 gallons I had in the back.

      It seems I had been getting incredible gas milage once the drum was installed, but I figured I better not press my luck and drive around on empty for too long. So I pulled over, hopped up into the back of my truck to start the refilling proccess when I noticed that the drum had an empty ring to it and no gas was flowing into my gas tank.

      So I unscrew the 3" opening on the drum and look inside. It's empty. Just like my gas tank. And I'm twelve miles from the nearest gas station.

      I had to tell you that story to tell you this story...When I realized my 55 gallon drum was down to the the last drops, I decided to blow into the 3" hole to create a little pressure and pump whatever gas was left in the drum into my gas tank. So I did. I put my mouth up to the hole and blew has hard as my lungs would let me.

      I recapped the drum orifice, drove to the Chrysler dealership and did the job. Now, one of my duties was to get a check for the job when done, so I spent a good 20 minutes BSing with the cute office girls while all the paperwork was done, and the job was inspected by the new car manager.

      I got paid, said good-bye to all the nice people, thought about how I had really impressed those cute girls with all my banter and my good looks, and how they couldn't stop laughing at my jokes, and hit the road to find the nearest gas station.

      About a mile down the road I leaned over to get a map off the truck seat and that's when I noticed it. Right there in the rear view mirror was the reflection of my mug with a big wrap-around mustache. The only problem was I was fairly young and didn't have a mustache at the time.

      As it turns out, there was a rubber 'O-ring' that sealed the cap on my 55 gallon drum and that O-ring was kind enough to impart a big black ring around my mouth. I mean a big black rubber ring that made me look like I had tried to blow up the Goodyear blimp by its tailpipe. To say I was embarrased would be an understatement.

      As I tried to clean it off all I could think about was how those cute girls in that country car dealership must have been thinking "Them city boys sure have some funny ways of trying to look like a man."

        HA! HA!

        ROFLMAO!!

        I just got such great cheap thrills reading about your misadventures - thanks for sharing everyone.

        I found this story which I think is just too funny, and women will especially relate!


        For all those who tend to be humiliated at the GYNECOLOGIST office...

        This is one of my all time favourite stories, supposedly true, that would have to make your Gyno's day!

        In Melbourne, FL one of the radio stations paid money ($100-500)
        for people to tell their most embarrassing stories. This one
        netted the winner:

        She said:

        I was due later in the week for an appointment with the
        gynecologist when early one morning I received a call from his
        office. I had been rescheduled for early that morning at 9:30 am.

        I had just packed everyone off to school and it was 8:45 already.

        The trip to his office usually took about 35 minutes, so I didn't
        have any time to spare. As most women do, I'm sure, I like to
        take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits,
        but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort.

        So I rushed upstairs, threw off my dressing gown, wet the
        washcloth and gave myself a wash in "that area" in front of the
        sink, taking extra care to make sure I was presentable.

        I threw the washcloth in the clothesbasket, donned some clothes,
        hopped in the car, and raced to my appointment.

        I was in the waiting room only a few minutes when he called me
        in. Knowing the procedure, as I'm sure you all do, I hopped up on
        the table, looked over at the other side of the room and
        pretended I was in Hawaii or some other place a million miles
        away from there.

        I was a little surprised when he said, "My...we have taken a
        little extra effort this morning, haven't we?" but I didn't
        respond.

        The appointment was over. I heaved a sigh of relief and went
        home. The rest of the day went normal... some shopping, cleaning,
        and the evening meal, etc.

        At 8:30 that evening, my 14-year-old daughter was fixing to go to
        a school dance when she called down from the bathroom,

        "Mom - where's my washcloth?"

        I called back for her to get another from the cabinet.

        She called back;

        "No! I need the one that was here by the sink.

        It had all my glitter and sparkles in it !!!!"

        What a sight he must have seen in the surgery that morning....
