    When me and my twin brother were younger, we used to liven up the weekly food shop by playing hide and seek around the store, sneaking up on each other and our parents. This one time, I saw my Dad leaning over one of the freezer chests, so I decided it'd be funny to try and scare him. I was learning taekwondo at the time, so decided to take a running jump and karate-chop his bum in a flying kick move (I was about 9 at the time). So I kicked him, but as he turned round I realised it was some random (and angry-looking!) bloke I'd never seen before. :gasp: I ran away.

    When I was about 14, we were having some work done on our house. I was getting ready for school one day, and came downstairs in my dressing gown and a towel turban on my head, singing along (very badly) at the top of my voice to the radio and dancing my way around the kitchen as I got my breakfast. It was about 7, so clearly I didn't expect anyone other than my family to be around. HOWEVER, I turned around and the carpenter was stood in the doorway absolutely pissing himself with laughter - God knows how long he'd been standing there. He managed to stop laughing long enough to say sarcastically "lovely singing!" before setting off again :unimpressed:

    I always end up running for the bus, no matter how hard I try to get there on time I seem to be late! One time, I was walking to my stop and I saw my bus was already there. I was in a huuuuge rush for work, so I legged it up the road, shouting "please wait!" as I went, my handbag flying everywhere, hair all windswept, completely undignified. Anyway, I jumped onto the bus, tripped, grabbed onto the counter to steady myself and paid for my ticket, panting and sweating and looking like a total tit, but relieved and a bit smug because I managed not to miss the bus. That's when the bus driver said, "You needn't have rushed love, I'm running early so we have to wait here for a bit". :unimpressed: The bus stayed parked for a good 5 minutes, leaving me to find a seat, red-faced, while the other passengers look at me like, you fool.

    I've had far too many of those "Muuuuummm?... ERM I MEAN MISS?" moments. Not too bad when you're in year 7, but in year 12 it's mortifying haha.
    You seem to have just that kinda luck ^^

    Parents went out and informed to expect a phone call from my brother. I then used my phone and was making a rather important call. My brother phoned whilst I was in the middle of this call. I then had to apologise, talk to my brother quickly and get back to what I was discussing.

    Hello,

    I know I have sooo many but I have this amazing ability to forget them if they are too cringey!

    But my most recent one (and the only one I can remember) was when I was at the British museum with my boyfriend and I was desperate for the loo and we couldn't seem to find the any bathrooms.. Eventually we found one, But while I was doing my business I could hear voices outside the ONE cubicle. Male voices, none of which belonged to my boyfriend. So I thought I'd wait til they were all gone. Except the longer I waited the more voices I heard... So I decided to just open the door and face the music! There were a good 10 men waiting for the toilets all giving me weird looks and laughing. So ****ing embarrassing....

    I was on holiday with my friends in Cornwall during the summer of Year 12.

    On one of the days, we went down to the beach. Two people stayed on the beach, but me and two friends decided to climb on the rocks next to the sea wall (at Portreath, if anyone has been there).
    It was all going swimmingly and we were having a nice time chilling on the furthest out rock and looking into the pools.

    After about ten minutes, I decided it was time to head back to the beach.. only to find that, when we turned round, the rocks were gone - the tide had come in around us.

    My friend, who's a lifeguard, was convinced that the water wasn't that deep as rocks had been there just a few minutes previously - so he tested it out and discovered that we definitely couldn't reach the bottom. I had a bag with my camera, my friends' cameras and phones and my phone in it - I did not want to ruin over £1000 worth of electronics!

    Anyway, to cut a long story short.. we had to be rescued, one-by-one, by a twelve-year-old in an inflatable dinghy whilst the entire beach watched on and pissed themselves with laughter.

    Simultaneously the scariest, funniest and most embarrassing moment of my life.
    This is the most beautiful story I have ever read, I am crying :L

    So at my school we have a double decker bus which is painted bright red and used as an art classroom (yeah weird school..) so it was parked next to the school field once and we thought it would be cool to go inside, being an old bus we could push the windows in and climb inside. We messed about in it for several lunchtimes until the site staff got wise and secured it properly. They had placed a padlock on the (mainly glass) doors, thinking we could break it off I threw a traffic cone at it. A concrete base traffic cone. At a glass door. It broke and at that moment in time when I saw a heavy cone flying at a glass door im pretty sure I tried to kill myself with my mind, to this day only a few people know what I did

    Oh, I forgot, I just remembered a corker from when I was about 14.

    Remember MSN had that REALLY cool feature where it would display what you were listening to? I had that turned on for some reason (not sure why, I never used to listen to music on my PC) and decided I would use iTunes to watch some videos.

    Of porn.

    Gay porn.

    The title was displayed for all to see.

    THE SHAME. Suffice to say, my closetness was blown.

    Walking to town today and literally tripped over the pavement.. It was a pretty even pavement too. No idea how it happened and it was next to a busy main road. My whole hand was bleeding. A guy came to see if I was ok but I stood up before he could come to me. I shouted thank you to him from afar. But wow. I still am in shock at how stupid that was! This has to be my most embarrassing moment ever.

    However, other embarrassing moments that I remember:
    Walking through town to the train station with a huge coursework folder I was in Year 11. Suddenly all the papers flew out and onto the pavement, with people walking past stepping all over them and not helping me at all. Like, thanks for that..
    Walking round with a tag still on my bag...
    Being in the launderette at Uni, taking my stuff out of the dryer and my knickers flying onto the floor right in front of this guy.. oh the shame.
    On a date with a guy trying to impress him, at the end of the night he didn't even kiss me. Looked in the mirror and realised I had something huge & black stuck inbetween my two front teeth from eating falafel earlier that night. That has to be the second most embarrassing moment.
    Yeah, alot of embarrassing things seem to happen to me, ha!!

    At a staff training day last year, I was asked to give a presentation to half of the company's employees. All of the other speakers that day were company Directors or Senior Management, so I was nervous, being the only mangagment (or below) level speaker. For some reason I still can't comprehend, I pronounced the word "capacity" CAP-IT-CITY several times. To this day, people still try and use the word (pronouced wrong) in conversation when talking to me. I haven't been invited back to speak at this years training day.


    I hadn't been seeing my ex for long, when her family invited us on a camping holiday. After a few drinks one night, we had quite a memorable night in our tent. Not as memorable as waking up the next morning and hearing her whole family discussing our night of passion, though.

    Some girl hurled chunks all down my legs on the way to school.

    Grim. I had to walk around with pukey-carrotty trousers all day.

    I remember when one time when I was like 12 or 13 I went to a friends party (mostly girls there) and they put a bra on me and took my picture. Obviously it went on facebook, but I forgot I had my brother and sister on facebook and they got the delight of showing it to my mother and father. Safe to say I got a couple of remarks made about me that week

    Also when I was at an Indian restaurant I was laughing so hard that I sort of leaned over to look at the ground to try and stop laughing, turns out I just put my hair in my curry. Had to walk to the bathroom with curry in my hair

    I ran for the bus once, it started driving away, I carried on sprinting beside it and banging on the door, but it drove off anyway. I was then left to stand in shame at the bus stop, feeling the burning gaze of the other people pissing themselves with laughter.

    I learnt my lesson, haven't run for a bus since.

    I was so nervous on my first day of college that I asked for a disabled bus ticket instead of a student one. My future boyfriend was on that bus and found it hilarious, so I suppose something good came out of it! My whole life is a bit of an embarrassing moment, though...

    A couple of years ago the following happened - and I don't even know why I said it because it was incredibly rude of me and I don't even care about getting married in registry offices: my parents did. Anyway, I live in a town where the registry office is pretty grotty and said to my friend when we walked past it one lunchtime: "I don't know why you'd want to get married in there. It's bloody awful." And his reply was: "well, actually my parents just did."

    It does sound like much but I think the sheer rudeness of my comment makes me feel so embarrassed about it to this day.

    What is your most embarrassing moment? Walking into a lamppost? Falling over in public? Gossiping about someone and they have been right behind you and heard? Someone saying you have BO? Sending a text/picture to the wrong person by mistake? Calling out the wrong name in sex?
    Basically i was on school trip, the worst kind... Geography field trip, to add pain and misery, it rained. And i got caught short now note this the toliets are unisex cubicalls. UNISEX (WHY!?!!?) , I really needed a piss. And the coach journy was about an hour or two, so I had to go, or i would blow my balls. As i went, I was in a rush so i forgot to lock the door. Now, i recently ate so i though i would was my hands, just to be safe. But then i as i was doing this my t shirt proped up and water splashed on my chest and stomach ( God wanted to punish me that day ) so i took off my shirt and jumper and placed them on the hanger So i'm drying my self with a combination of hand dryer and paper tissues, which was adventurous for me. After of witch i took my piss now i wouldent be bothered to pull up my boxers and jeans up whilste i washed my hands. Thus the invitable happened the door opens, fast and without warning i'm thier staring at the door and quickly pull up my boxers and jeans and i fall backwards on the floor, not wearing without a shirt facing on my stomach then i slowly turn around in a way that makes it look as if i was saying "Don't look at me it's embarassing". Now it couldent get any worse i'd been in thier for ages (drying myself), the hand drying is going on and off witch she heard. And thier are damp tisues scatered all over the floor, not to mention i'm waering barly anything and now drenched in sweeting as it was humid, plus the embaresment was to much i went red. I don't know weather she saw my ****, wether she thinks i was whacking off a quicky. What makes it worse is i went bright red, and she stared right at me for about 20-30 seoconds, in silence. And i couldent look anyworse. At last she shut the door. And went away. She sat in the other coach so i did not see her again.

    This bought back memories of a 3 day geography trip I had as well where there was a toilet on the coach and someone took a huge dump at the start of a 6 hour trip But the embarrassing thing for me was I bought my diary which had in it a fantasy about a boy I fancied on the trip asking me out. Like he took me behind the bike locks and said.. will you be my girlfriend? And it was in my bag on the coach on in the overhead storage so someone found it and the back of the coach were reading my diary out loud, and then the coach went silent and everyone looked at me and I realized and then everyone was laughing. then I had to spend the 3 day trip with that boy! So Embarrassing!
