Most Embarassing Situation You've Been In

Wed May 07, 2003 5:03 pm

I slipped in a huge mud puddle while trying to run after a bus - right in front of a crowded bus stop while wearing a three-piece suit as I was running late for a job interview...

Off the top of my head, I guess I was studying in the library, and a girl was about 5 feet from me, and I had to fart, and I let it out, but I was thinking it was going to be quiet, but it wasn't so it was loud, and I just played it off and ignored it. I am not sure if she did.

Another was yesterday, I was at my girlfriends house, and we were chillin in her room, just talking, I layed back on her bed. Guys know sometimes the cloth on our shorts/jeans get a little bunched up around the crouch. Well this was the case, it looked like I had an erection, which was not the case. Her sister came in before I had time to fix it, it looked quite bad because my girlfriend was sitting up next to my hips. Oh well, her sister left about 5 minutes after that...

You guys never seem to amaze me!  Laugh out loud
We are both consenting adults. I just got home from college, I did not cheat on her, nor did I flog the dolphin in like 2 weeks. Do the math!

She is working tonight, but tomorrow we will have some time to do some more catching up, and Friday too, and Saturday, and Sunday... The list goes on.

I will post more if anything "embarrassing" goes on. Doubtful though!  Wink/being sarcastic

My guess is, for ALL of us, our most embaressing moment will come infront of a memeber of the opposite sex (or, around here, possibly the same sex)

Mine was last summer. I was working as a banner tow pilot living in a resort town. The guy that did most of the work in our shop, Joe, actually took the job because he was bored with retirement and wanted something to do. And since we spend a great deal of time in the shop as well, we were all good friends.

Well, one day his brother came out on a weekend, along with his 3 daughters, all who were 19-25 and Joe made it clear that they were also single. Well, we're all playing it off as no big deal; we're just doing our job, as they look at our airplanes and ask questions, and express their disbelief that we'd actually strap our sorry asses into these wrecks.

Well, I'm off #4 for the morning. We head out, and start our planes. Mind you, we have what is known as the "Armstrong starter" because it makes your arm strong hand propping your airplane 2 or 3 times a day.

Everybody goes out and starts their plane right away, 3rd or 4th time. Execept of course, me. Me, I'm out there for 10 freakin' minutes trying to start the damned thing, and finally, someone else comes over and helps me (at which point it fires on the first compression stroke). When, unbeknownst to me, the lock nut on my tow hook retraction reel has slipped, and my tow hook has fallen down and is dragging on the ground, visible to all.

We takeoff one at a time and swing back to grab our banners (a banner is picked up off the ground by diving at the ground at a steep angle and high speed followed by a sharp pullout at 5 feet AGL and a zoom climb to 300'). Now, not to toot my own horn or anything, but I was pretty darned good at grabbing it at the first swing; around 90% of the time I'd get it without needing a second swipe at it. This morning EVERYBODY gets their banner on the first time throught the poles, except of course, you guessed it?

ME.

Now, all of this would be just written off to making an fool of myself on my bad day, right? Except, a month later we're over at Joe's for a fish fry. And his nieces are there. Introductions are going around, and when it gets to me, they remember me.

"OH! You're the one that couldn't start his airplane, right? And then took off with his hook dragging? And missed the pickup?"

-sigh- My ONE off day, and it HAD to be that.


Oh well, I'm drunk now, depressed about women, and counting down the days till I'm back out there.

To summer on the Jersey Shore! [CHEERS!]

Heh, looking back, it was kinda funny, sucked at the time though. Yes, they were cute btw.

You should try it Clovis, it's some of the most fun flying I've had; of course, we had our own private strip cut out of the trees, but from what I understand, a LOT of banner towing is quite, umm, well it's very laid back; my uniform was usually grease stained blue jeans, a t-shirt, and cowboy boots. Oh, and a motorcycle helmet.

lol Mike, thats classy...

Mine came during a football match. We were winning 2-1 against the second best team in the league. Everything was going fine until they got a corner. Someone took back post so I had to go to the front post, anyway the corner came straight to me and I inadvertently headed it into my own net.

Not so bad, 2-2 and one own goal to my name... Anyways, they get another corner.. And this time I'm going back post, to avoid anymore.. The ball comes in, someone heads it out of the area. Everyone tries to get out, but a shot comes back in, goalkeeper parries it to my feet about 10 yards out. Decisions decisions, what do I do? I didn't want to turn caus I was sure i'd run into someone, so to avoid embarrasment I tried to play it out for another corner across the goal.

My god... thats the sweetest I've ever hit a football, instead of passing it out I caught it under my foot and it curled into the opposite top corner... 2 own goals, 3-2 down... Man that felt bad... Not to mention the fact I was just standing there and managed to somehow put the ball in my own net from so far out  Sad.

Dan, they sure must've loved you after that.. Big thumbs up


My most embarassing was just a couple of weeks ago. I'm really into this girl in my neighbourhood. One day my boss and I (my boss is my nephew) returned from work and we were so glad work was done, that we acted totally weird in the car..
We were listening to some r&b music and somehow we started flexing our biceps (showing them off) Not that anyone was watching, at least, thats what I thought... I look to my left and there, waiting for the bus, looking at me with eyes rolled up:  Insane was that girl... lol

Never really talked to her about it, but I felt real stupid Big grin

Mine has to be today seeing as i can't really remember anything else ....

I was in work, i'd just come back from dinner and i was bending down putting a box onto a shelf when i felt like i needed to break wind, without further ado out it came ... not a silent one, but a long, noisy one .... i smiled to myself, and as i got back up and turned around there was a customer right behind me waiting to ask me a question .... i didn't know where to look  Laugh out loud

Another one has to be back a year or so ago, i used to work in Tesco's on the check-outs and one day we had a 1 minutes silence for a tragic accident where a steel works nearby exploded. We were told that an announcement would come on at 11:59 and we would prepare for it ...
Im going along now, carrying on with what i have to do and im keeping an eye on the time, at 11:55 an announcement came over the tannoy but due to the beeping of the check-out and 9 times out of 10 it's just a customer call i didn't pay any attention ....
After about 10 secs i could just hear myself beeping away still putting things through the check-out, as i look around everyone is stood still watching me but im still putting things through the till ... after about 30 secs of this and without me noticing i was tapped on the shoulder and politely told to stop as we were half way through the minutes silence.
I didn't know where to put my face, i was the talk of the whole store that day  Laugh out loud
Regards

Back on one fine Spring day in 1997, I did a sort of "double date" with my friend Dustin and one of his friends, along with one of her friends. I was with Marissa, and I don't recall what Marissas friends name was.

Anyway, the four of us went (don't ask why, of all places we chose to go here) to Glen Ivy Hot Springs (http://www.glenivy.com).

We were having a good ol' time. Then, after we took the wallow in the mud (or "red clay" as they call it) and were laying out in the sun to dry, I took a small clump of the "mud", and just sort of tossed it at Marissa-as a sort of joke.

No big deal, we were already covered in the stuff from head to toe, right?

Well, she was laying on her back, the clump of clay scored a direct bulls-eye hit on a fairly personal region of her front anatomy. I mean dead center. It was definitely a million-to one-shot, and to this day, neither Dustin nor Marissa will accept my apology that it was an accident. Needless to say, I felt pretty small at the time.

I had another one yesterday, it was raining and i was riding to work on my bike .... i was going through a little layby with all houses in and as i got to the end of it i had to join up with the main road, as i did my wheel went into a pot hole in the side of the road and the bike just went from underneath me.
As i looked around after doing a Klinsmann all the passing cars were beeping and people were laughing, i just got back on the bike and rode off as fast as i could. For my efforts, i got a swollen left hand, cut right leg and a bruised left knee  Sad

I went to a small private school in Oklahoma. In the bathrooms we didn't have urinals, only toilets. I was used to not seeing urinals in bathrooms because of this. I was out one night for mother's day. I was taking my mom to dinner and to the symphony. I was all decked out in my suit and she in her best. I had to pee. So I went to the bathroom. No urinals, only stalls with toilets. So I flipped open a door, left it open, (No one cared at school, we are guys, it was just a piss), unzipped, whipped it out, and let it flow. About mid-piss I was interrupted by a female voice saying, "Uh, this is the women's bathroom." I turned around and 5 women on the usual 'girls to the bathroom' jaunt were at the door watching me in full glory. I turned red, stopped mid pee, and zipped up and walked quietly out of the bathroom and finished in the men's room. I guess I'll look for those urinals next time.
