Forgive me if this idea has been discussed before, I did a search but couldn't find anything too recent.
This afternoon I had to go downtown to drop off some papers. Before the elevator doors closed, a girl who happened to be quite attractive got in, and we smiled politely at each other. I wasn't paying too much attention, but after a few seconds she said "Hows it going?" I was pretty surprised but I said it was going pretty well, thanks. Then after a few seconds of silence, she asked "What are you up to later?" I was halfway through answering when said, "Do you mind I'm on the phone" and pointed to her earpiece that was hidden by her long, blond hair.
To make matter worse, she got off on the same floor and went to the same office as I did. Which is where she worked.
Anybody else have a similar story?
Edited for grammar.

Jumped out of my friends car (there was four of us) ran into the shop for some ciggies, came out and didn't recognise her car in the dark. Proceeded to get into what I thought WAs her car to be greeted by a horrified woman in the drivers seat staring at me......I could have died with embarrassment ! My friends in the car next door were doubled up...
Think I've mentioned this before but being VERY drunk at a party I spent several minutes (so I'm told) having a conversation with a coat stand in the corner of the room.....It added entertainment value to the party apparently !!
There are others I am sure !! I do the daftest things sometimes...

The most embarrassing thing I can think of was when I was about 7 years old and visiting NYC for the first (and so far only) time. My Mom and I were taking the subway to the Museum of Natural History. This was my first time on anything underground having spent all my years in Miami. So I was very excited about it. When we got to our stop we got off the train and as we were walking down the platform the doors closed and the train started to accelerate very slowly. Now naturally being 7 years old with so much to prove about myself, and observing this blatant sign of weakness from the train, decided to race the train to the end of the platform where the tunnel began. Now at first things were proceeding wonderfully. I was beating the train like a red headed step child getting hammered by a coal miner father with a briarpatch switch. Things were going well and I'm looking at the train, I'm looking at the train, I'm looking at the train, then all of a sudden my mom screams out "TED"!!!! I look up where I am going and almost all I see is subway pole.
.....to the forehead @ kid speed
I fall back on my ass, head bleeding, and naturally I start to scream bloody murder. A transit cop came bolting down from upstairs and wasted one of his handkerchiefs applying direct pressure, and naturally called for the paramedics. About 3 hours later I walked out of the hospital with 7 stitches in my forehead and this shitty embarrassing story to tell. I still have the scar, though thankfully it's not easily recognizable.
When we got back to Miami, we mailed the cop a package of handkerchiefs with a hand written thank you note from me.

This one was from many years ago when I was in Hong Kong having a holiday. We went out cruising around the waters of Hong Kong on a replica Chinese junk.
Myself and another kid were running around the junk playing chasing's and hide and seek. I decided to be real crafty and climb in through a deck level window to escape my pursuer.
So in I go feet first with my stomach against the window sill. I drop down a short distance and instantly find that I have climbed into the toilet cubicle, and that my foot has actually landed in the bowl.
The embarrassing part was one of the older female passengers was in the toilet cubicle as well and had her jeans partway down, so I was not too sure if she was just about to start her business or had just finished. She must have got the shock of her life.

Uh, are you sure? This bears a striking resemblance to a Pepsi commerical.

I can't think of my most embarrassing story, I can however think of a few humiliating times one of which was when I was about 8 and I was playing at my friends house. I was running through the house heading outside when sadly I didn't see that the sliding glass patio door was shut. I must have ran into it as fast as I could and wham! I smashed the inner pane into a million pieces, cracked the outer pane and landed flat back on my ass covered in blood in front of my friend and all his family.
I remember it took a long time for her to get all the glass out of my mouth before I was taken to hospital!
The only 'getting caught' story I'll tell is when I was 11 and on holiday in Turkey. My grandad of all people caught me and my 'girlfriend' embraced, doing stuff in the mens room one night whilst we were all out. I recall he shouted out and asked what we were doing and I remember for a fact we replied with, "we're scratching each others backs!". Everytime I think of that I still laugh!

It was a friday night and I wanted to get into that super trendy small club. I had no reservation but knew some "friends" were going there on that night and wanted to join them, but I didnt know what time they'd be there. It was about 10 PM
Anyway... I decided to try to bluff my way in.
Me: Hello, how are you
The bouncer: Do you have a reservation?
Me: No, but my friends are inside waiting for me
B: Your friends are inside?
Me (starting to feel uneasy): Yeah
B: mmmm.. (asking another staff guy standing at the door) should we let him in? he says his friends are inside...
The other guy: I dont know
Me: Come on...
B: ok, go in
Yay! I step into the club and then it strikes me... The club is totally empty! I was the first person to get there. so much for the "bluff".
