    Writing that primates are good for incest control instead of insect control in one of my uni essays and not realising until my tutor left me a message saying "primates are good for incest control? Who would have thought!" we all laughed it off but I was mortified

    Wetting myself in school as a child, it was nearing the end of the day and I was bursting to go but trying to hold it in until I got home (because there was a rumour circulating around our school that there was a ghost in the girls toilets that used to kill anyone who was in there alone and of course, in my naive young mind I believed it ) but the day was taking forever to end. i just had to wait another 5 or 10 minutes but couldn't so the pee came out and i left a big puddle in the middle of the floor then tried to slide away but one kid saw it and screamed out to everyone that i had wet myself. some kids laughed, some kids mocked me but some just carried on doing what they were doing. my teacher however was nice enough to tell everyone to stop and took me somewhere to change.

    That's very nice of the teacher.

    Accidentally knocking my glasses off my face in public. Still happens occasionally but I tend to wear contacts most of the time now so no one sees.

    Yeahhhhh. When you raise your hand but then your arm hits your glasses.
    Don't wear glasses as much as I used to, so I don't have that problem anymore.

    When I used to do AS business whenever I was late the teacher used to close the class room door because he knew I struggled opening it. This one day I was late and I was struggling for at least a minute to open this door . What made things worse is that some parts of the door had glass and everyone could see me . I managed to open the door and then the entire class started clapping for me. From that day onwards I Learnt if I can't open the door I should tell someone else to open it for me. A few days ago I tripped in maths while I was getting up. Ive had so many embarrassing moments .
