I have a few. One that still makes me laugh is this: We had just moved into a new house and MIL was coming over to check it out. We re-arranged the living room furniture right before she arrived (really bad idea!). We were giving her the tour of the house and we walked into the living room and I forgot that I had placed the ottoman *right there*. So the next thing I knew, I was splatted atop the ottoman, looking at the floor, and LMAO.

What are some of your most embarrassing moments?

My life is a series of embarrassing moments.

Most recently: Went to parent teacher conferences. Didn't have time to change clothes after cleaning house all day long. Did the whole parent/teacher thing, tried to be serious (hard to do when you're the parent of MY boys), and grown up and professional and such. Got to the last teacher, sat down, introduced myself and waited for the "unfoundling is a great kid, blah blah blah, talks too much blah blah blah but is doing great in class", but instead got "Unfoundling is passing this class with flying colors...uh he may be able to help you with that" and points to my shirt.

I had a "GOT CRABS?" shirt on from Joes Crabshack...and I was sitting across from DS's health teacher.


From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity. DK

I have an embarrassing tendency to accidentally proposition people, including Louie, the bear mascot for the St. Louis Blues. He was visiting kids in the hospital with Patrick Berglund and they stopped by my son's hospital room while I was rubbing his feet (his favorite thing when he doesn't feel good) and Louie stuck his foot up, jokingly like "my turn". I smiled and tried to joke back and blurted out "Sure, hop onto the bed, I'll do everybody!" I immediately turned red and started apologizing and trying to backtrack and stuttering, I was so embarrassed. Joshie didn't catch a thing of course, and I don't think Patrick Berglund did either, as English is not his first language, but I'm sure he was filled in by the bear afterwards. I have done this four times and counting, I don't think before I speak sometimes.

I was a junior in high school. My dad and I were at the airport, picking my mom up from a trip....and I told them that *I* would get her bag off of the carousel. So here comes the "I got it"....grabbed it....about pulled my arm out of its socket....said "jesus christ, mom, what do you have in here?" Turned around and saw a nun standing RIGHT behind me.

Yea, I'm going to hell.....

Pull up a chair.

When ds14 was about 5, we went to a NASCAR race with my ILs. The kids went up and spent the whole week with ILs in their RV, and JM and I drove up on Friday for the races. Sunday AM, both boys were just NASTY. They hadn't had a proper bath or shower all week. So I took them to the shower facilities at the campground. Huge 40 stalls on each side. My older ds was old enough to go in the men's side by himself. I took the younger one with me. Each stall had a little changing area divided from the shower with a curtain. I stripped him, threw him in the shower, then undressed myself. As soon as I stepped in the shower, he screamed, "MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!! WHY YOU GOT HAIR ON YOUR PEE PEE???????????????????????????"

O.M.G. I thought I was going to literally burst into flames and die. I could hear women laughing all up and down the place. I stayed in there for, like, 45 minutes, hoping everyone who heard it would have left by then.

Some more recent favorites:

I was driving JM's truck and had to stop for groceries. When I came out, it was pouring down rain and I didn't have an umbrella. I thought I could be smooth and hold all the grocery bags with my left hand, open the door and jump in, with one smooth move. All went according to plan until I started to jump in and realized I was at the wrong truck. And the man whose truck it was, was sitting there talking on his cell phone. I was about to jump in his lap. He asked, "Are you coming with me" And I stammered, "Oh, no. Not tonight. Thanks, though!" And then slunk away in the rain to find our truck.

Hmmm...another time, I walked around all day long in 2 completely different shoes. Not like 2 different colored but similarly styled shoes. Oh no. One white tennis shoe and one leather loafer. All day.

Sometimes I'm amazed that I haven't been killed by my stupidity at some point.

Well, two come immediately to mind

1. I was leading the furnace guy into basement and told him to watch his head on the low-ceiling in my basement stairwell...I then turned around and fell down the stairwell.

2. I'll tell SI group because I'm anonymous on here and it's one I can't tell too many people in person. Yes, it is THAT embarrassing..
background: about 15 years ago my sister worked in jewelry business, high-end stuff. She would get customers ordering big $$ jewelry and to save them tax dollars would ship to my address out-of-state. She would then come across state line to pick it up at my place and then go back to deliver the jewelry to customer. I didn't like the arrangement and had been telling her I wanted it to end.
So, ethics aside...
she called me one day and said the customer wanted to drive to my apartment and pick it up themselves, they had a special party. I didn't like that idea but finally agreed. I received the package and told my sister it was there and she contacted customer.
The husband and wife drive 2 HOURS to pick up this special-order necklace for their party that night.
I hand them the package, he brings it outside to their car and wife uses my bathroom.
All of a sudden Husband is back at my door asking me "is this some kind of joke?!"
I ask what is wrong.
He replies "this is NOT a necklace and this is NOT what I ordered"'s beginning to dawn on me....

Husband is pissed. He's wondering what is going on after driving 2 hours.

I'm beginning to remember the contents of the other package I had been expecting....

Husband hands me the box
I peek in and yep, I was afraid of that...
I look at the return address, which I hadn't done before.
it was actually something I had ordered.
It was definitely NOT their 15K necklace...
Instead of their beautiful diamond necklace, there in that box was the neon-green BOB and assorted other toys I had ordered

I was mortified.
OMG, what could I say?!?!
I wanted to sink into the floor and disappear.
They ultimately wound up driving back home 2 hours, with a bad attitude, no necklace and only a good story to tell at their party.
Me? Well, after the mortification wore off, I had a fun night

The real necklace did arrive a few days later and my sister picked it up.
Needless to say, that was THE END of that entire arrangement my sister had going.

I've only told 4 people that story IRL. Now I share with SI my most embarrassing moment. EVER.

I was looking down at a chart while walking into an exam room one time and said to my patient"Bob, you've lost 35lbs in the last six months! what's your secret?"

I pooped my pants in a shoe store.
My H & I had been out for a delicious, but rich, meat-lovers pizza.Then we set out to get him new shoes. He HATES to go shopping, but once you get him into a store he always has dozens of questions about whatever it is he's buying.

About halfway through the shoe-buying and fitting experience, I started to fill a tummy rumble. It was a small store and I knew they didn't have a public restroom. I was too shy to ask for the employee's restroom, and besides I thought surely we'd be done soon and I could escape to a nearby gas station. WRONG!

I began to fidget and my H finally asked if I was in a hurry or something. I replied "Kind of" and within seconds I involuntarily unloaded. It was still a few minutes before we finished the transaction and escaped, me praying the whole time no one could see or smell anything! When we headed to the car, my H was still blissfully unaware and asked what my problem was. I can only hope if he didn't notice no one else did either. I've never been back to that shoe store though, and that was decades ago.

I work in a small company - there are only 2 stalls in the ladies room.

One day, I really had to go. I walked in and both stalls were in use. I said "Hurry UP!! I have to Pee."

One of the doors opens, and out walks the owner's 75 year old mother. She apologized for taking so long.

I almost peed myself out of mortification when she walked out.

Haven't been to SI in a while. Embarassing in and of itself! I could write a book, but this one is a favorite.

GSG and I are team leaders at Firecamp, an overnight week-long Explorer Post for girls interested in experiencing volunteer fire and EMS services, held during the summer in Utica, NY. On Wednesday nights we go to the city pool for a class, then swim and relax for a bit.

Many female firefighters have tattoos, clearly visible wearing bathing gear. Many of us stood in a circle, laughing and talking with some of the older campers. One asked, "So, do all firefighters have tats?"

I responded, "Well, I have three at home."

Um. I guess it is time for a hearing test.

And I know know what my first tattoo will be.

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 coworkers 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...

I argued grammar with a teacher when she explained that you lay down inanimate objects but animate objects lie down. I blurted out, "But you can lay a dog (down)..." Cue hysterical laughter from the rest of the class.

I once loaded bags of groceries from my cart into the back seat of a car that wasn't mine - I noticed a bag on the back seat and as I was loading bag after bag of groceries I was wondering where the bag came from, why I hadn't seen it before, wait a minute - where's the car seat? And then I realized it wasn't my car, and that an elderly woman was sitting in the passenger front seat, fake sleeping to avoid having the embarrassing encounter where we both acknowledge I'm totally at the wrong car. I quietly unloaded, whispered "sorry!" and left. As I drove out I saw her really animatedly relating her adventure to some guy getting in the car. I knew she was awake, the big faker.

I've told this before, but still ranks at one of my most embarrassing moments. I was getting off the phone with my boss and ended the call with an automatic "I love you". My boss has no sense of humor, is a very distinguished and important person who takes his own importance very seriously, if you catch my drift. Though he did understand. I still think of it when I see him.

Smaller stuff. I'm a noted shopping cart thief. Probably 50% of my shopping experiences involve me making off with someone else's cart. I've even come up with a line to apologize, it happens often enough. Come to think of it I'm a total disaster in the grocery store. I have also been known to accidentally take ownership of the carts employees are using to reshelve items or those that are used as a discount bin. I looked down one day not too long ago and saw I was pushing a cart piled to the top with clearance makeup and discount hair dye, with a huge orange 50% off starburst sign taped to the side. My cart was like 5 aisles away. I was pushing the makeup a long, long time.

Circe, what is your cart-stealing line? I am also a noted cart-stealer.

GSG also tells random people she loves them. When on call, she is called in mid-night. One night she told poor Lewis, the overnight help desk guy, "I love you, man!" No one has ever forgotten it.

Nothing clever, just make a 'yikes!' face and say "sorry! I'm a well known cart thief, trying to break the habit! I guess I left mine in produce?" with an embarrassed look. (Produce is usually the place where my cart switching happens) I used to try to say something off the cuff but nearly always made it even more awkward. It's worse if you pile stuff into it before it's discovered, because then you have to have the the "is this yours? no...what about these?" conversation.

For me the latest is something that happens every week.

I have therapy on Tuesdays with an awesome IC. Every week I go to say, "See you next Tuesday!" and then a certain acronym I learned from SI comes to mind. So I consciously have to tell her, "See you on Tuesday" or "See you next week" in order to not think of the acronym. LOL thanks SI!!!

When we just had one kid, he use to crawl in our bed every night. If we wanted to have some "fun" we would go in another room. He was a really sound sleeper, so we didnt bother locking the door. It was morning, daylight. My hubby was " downstairs" on me. I looked to my side and there was my son with his arms crossed. I don't know how long he had been standing there. I still to this day wonder if he's remembered it.

I snorted at all of the cart stealing. I do it all the time, once twice in one trip. One time a cute guy chased me down...if it wasn't so embarrassing I could use it as a pick up line!

One day a solicitor came by. I shouted through the door that I didn't open my door to strangers, sorry. He said, "Then you might want to take your keys out of your door." Agh!

Wow, you're slick! I'm almost always caught way before the check out!

I shouted through the door that I didn't open my door to strangers, sorry. He said, "Then you might want to take your keys out of your door." Agh!

I did that when DH and I were dating! I was in a snit when he dropped me off at my door one night and pouted my way into my house and closed and locked the door, only to hear him knock a minute later. I told him through the door that I didn't want to keep arguing and to let it rest, but he had only knocked to tell me I'd left the keys hanging out of the lock.

I used to work in a hospital lab and one of the weekly quality control tasks that needed to be done in our dept was to test the safety shower to make sure it was working properly (water flow and the drain). So there I am holding a huge funnel that leads into the drain on the floor-turn on the water, let it run, pull the handle to shut the water off......wait for hand holding the funnel slips and the water has NOT shut off!! So I get drenched with about a million gallons of water in front of 50 people.

Not to mention that the drain is not flush with the floor so the water spreads out EVERYWHERE! I definitely provided the entertainment that day... the worst part, was not wearing waterproof mascara!!! And how do I know this, you ask? I spent about a half an hour trying to mop up the water on the floor and my hair and clothes with paper towels before someone mentioned it to me

Three years after that, people were still talking about that!

I work in a church. Once a year, we have the fire department come to inspect our extinguishers, extension cords, and any other possible fire code violations. And of course, these are FIRE FIGHTERS who are buff, cute, and Oh So Lovely. And young. To me, really young.

So they came to inspect, rang the doorbell, and down the stairs I went to let them in. They walked through the building to check it out before going to the Sanctuary. When they were through, we were standing in the hallway, and they asked me for a copy of the last year''s report, to make sure that we didn''t have any continuing problems. No Problem, I said, I''ll run upstairs and get it. Being somewhat athletic and, of course, wanting to see younger than my middle years, I sprang up the stairs two at a time.

In mid-air, going up the first two stairs, I realized I had a problem. And sure enough, when my foot hit the stair, I farted.

Notice I didn''t say that I pooted, or passed gas. I mean, I ripped one out of the depths of my, er, bowels at full volume. Having done so, and now being in full air again about to hit the next two steps, I realized that this was not the only, "one," I had in me.

10 steps, 5 bounces, ripping one each and every bounce. Funny, how an enclosed stairwell will echo .....

I hid in my office, checking the security monitor to the downstairs hallway, until they stopped laughing .... mostly. Grabbed the paperwork, WALKED CAREFULLY down the stairs, thrust the papers into the chest of the Captain, and then muttered, I''ll go open the Sanctuary for you.

We all avoided each other''s eyes (and none of them walked precisely behind me), while I let them into the Sanctuary, and then retreated to my office. Signed the papers presented to me and they left.

Welcome to my world. If there''s a way to embarrass myself, I''ll find it!

When I worked back east, I had to undergo training in DC so I stayed at the penthouse that my company had in Crystal City. Beautiful apartment, floor to ceiling views from the living room. The first morning I woke up, I went to the kitchen, got a cup of coffee, and then strolled over to the full-view window, sipping my coffee, watching the day start, and watching the people in the offices across from me start arriving, opening their offices, and beginning the day''s activities. Noticed that they sure were friendly, some waiving and smiling at me. Then realized that I was buck naked and backlit by the lamps in my living room .... . Hit the floor and crawled, rapidly, back to the hallway, thus also mooning all of those people.

I swear, if my butt wasn''t attached to the base of my spine, I wouldn''t be able to find it with both hands!

I know I can't beat SKAN's for most embarrassing. One little toot escaped as I was walking away from my husband when we were engaged, and I was horrified! I almost started crying. He thought it was funny.

The next most embarrassing time was when I was nursing our first child. I was quietly sitting in the back of the church, all covered up, when the entire congregation stood up and faced the back of the church. It was a feast, and that was part of the ritual. I didn't get up, I just sat and faced them, all looking at me. I could have stood up and turned my back to them all, but I didn't think of that, so I just sat there.

The next most embarrassing thing is when I asked an acquaintance when her baby was due. She said, "I'm not expecting, I'm just fat." I was horrified, and felt terrible. It took me years to build up my courage to ever ask that question again.

Love these!

My most embarassing moments all sound like they came directly out of a John Hughes movie...

I was that geek in high school who was trying VERY HARD to be a cool kid. I got contacts in 10th grade and thought that was my ticket to the in-crowd... yeah, not so much.

At one varsity boys basketball game when I was a sophomore, I was "gracefully" ( ) descending the bleachers, attempting to sashay past THE COOLEST SENIOR GUY in school... and tripped three rows above him, tumbling down and landing at his feet. He stood up above me, spread his arms wide like a baseball umpire, and yelled "SAFE!"

Somehow in my attempt at coolness I became that geeky girl who accidentally makes the cheerleading squad because the cheerleading advisor (who was the AP English teacher) really likes her. At a pep rally my junior year, I did a great big jump... to realize I had forgot my spankies and had on only regular underwear...

TMI alert ahead... my senior year, when I decided I wasn't cutting it as cool and was exercising my jock side instead, my pad fell out of my shorts as I was running down the court during a basketball game. Refs had to call a time out so I could scamper mid-court and grab that thing. I didn't come out of the locker room for the rest of the game.

Back in the late 90's I worked for an EAP company and we were required to keep our pagers on at all times. During a session I would have mine on vibrate. I was wearing my pager on my skirt waist band, tucked behind my blazer. During a pretty intense MC session my pager vibrated and it startled me. The couple looked at me with concern and I said "Oh, sorry my vibrator just went off." Yeah, it sounds funny, but it wasn't to them and so embarrassing for me. Suffice it to say I referred them out since EAP wasn't the right setting for what they needed.

The day I met my in laws for the first time was humiliating. They picked my H and I up at the airport and drove back to their house. At the house we took our bags upstairs, but instead of unpacking, started having sex. Not even five minutes into it, my MIL opens the door, my H jumps off me, and I laid there spread eagle while she stared for a few seconds. Thankfully no one ever talks about what happened. I don't think I could bear it.

I've tucked my skirt into the back of my pantyhose and then stood in the hallway talking to a coworker as other coworkers passed by and didn't say a word.


and SKAN!

I was so freaked out about confession that I peed in the confessional once because I was too scared to ask to go to the ladies room.

The whole class saw the puddle come widdling out from underneath the door.

The nuns got some cloths and tidied up, and I was allowed to go home.

Talk about traumatized!

I burned the microwave popcorn a little at work once. Not even burnt, still edible, just a little smoke..not embarassing? The microwave was right under the smoke detector and it went off, and I work in a medical building and the firefighters came screaming in with an ambulance and everything but a chopper in the air and cleared the whole building so everyone, patients and staff were out on the lawn. Everytime someone drove by that knew us asked who did it and they all pointed at me. For six months anytime a siren went off everyone yelled "hey, Welcome is making popcorn again!" I no longer eat microwave popcorn.

This was back when I was dating exwh.....

We were at his apartment and I was meeting his brother, best friend, and best friend's girlfriend for the first time. We are relaxing on the couches. I was sitting on the love seat with exwh's brother, while the other 3 were sitting next to us on the bigger couch. I had decided to relax with my leg stretched out on brother's lap. After a couple of minutes I started to feel a rumble in my tummy. So I decided I better sit up. Unfortunately when I lifted my leg off of exwh's lap I let a loud one rip. I was so mortified and embarrassed. I did the first thing that came to mind....l accused his brother of doing it and not me.

His brother was not a gentleman. Not only did he not take credit of it but he made a big todo about it being me.

He has never let me live it down. He would tell everybody how the first time he met me I was passing gas on him and that it has never stopped.

My other story happened in college....

The parking lot at the college was very woodsy and I would often walk under low hanging trees as I went into class. As I was sitting on the front row of class and listening to my professor lecture, I glanced down to noticed a BIG green bug (over 2 1/5" long) crawling down my shirt. It freaked me out! I jumped a little in my seat and quickly brushed it off of me. My professor stopped talking while I was doing this and just stared at me. Then he asked me if I was okay and if he could continue with class.

Another time I was climbing the stairs up to the back of the lecture hall. My ankle rolled and I was unable to keep my balance since I was wearing 3" heels. I fell straight to the floor in front of everyone.... I wasn't hurt just very embarrassed. My ankles always tend to roll at the most embarrassing moments

I'm a little lost. What is the acronym you are talking about in:

I have therapy on Tuesdays with an awesome IC. Every week I go to say, "See you next Tuesday!" and then a certain acronym I learned from SI comes to mind.
