Most recent embarrassing moment

  1. profile image0
    Kathryn LJposted 8 years ago

    Embarrassing stuff is always happening to me and the old man and has been the inspiration for many a plot twist in my writing.  Last week he nipped out to collect the mail.  The trouble was he had just had a shower, was naked and the post woman was standing on the steps with a parcel.  He nonchanontly signed for the post, burbling away, completely forgetting that he was living in Brittany and that hardly anyone speaks English. A total body blush is possible! Post woman grinning like Cheshire cat.  What's your most recent embarrassing moment?

      How funny Kathryn! I haven't had any particularly embarrassing moments recently, but your post reminded me of several very embarrassing incidences when I used to live in France like you! Sometimes caused by the language differences and some ever-so-slight mispronunciations giving my phrases a whole new meaning! (Be careful when you're trying to say 'neck' - there's a very subtle difference between 'cou' (neck) and 'queue' (meaning tail but slang for *rse! lol)

      However, my most embarrassing incident happened in a busy French supermarket - our local Intermarche. I was at the checkout - it was very busy and there were queues at all the tills. I put all the contents of my trolley on the conveyor belt and went to push the trolley through, past the till, to start bagging my purchases when the alarm went off!

      Well of course everyone looked round (as you do) to see who set off the alarm and they were very interested to see why the english woman had set off the alarm. Was she trying to steal something? You can't trust the 'rosbifs' coming over buying all the old french houses, driving up the houses prices...

      I was VERY embarrassed as they made me back up my trolley and then passed my handbag through the detector thingy next to the till. Nothing happened, so they indicated for me to pass through again. I did and the alarm went off again!

      So I was told to back up and remove my coat, then try again - which I did and the alarm went off AGAIN!

      I could feel all these eyes on me - I'm a big woman and don't like being the centre of attention at the best of time, but this awful - I was mortified!

      By then the manager was involved and I was then told to remove my jacket and go through again - again the alarm went off! I just wanted to crawl away and hide.

      They were about to ask me to remove my next layer of clothing when a person a few rows back in the queue called out something, pointing at me. I didn't hear what was said, but people started laughing and then the manager turned me round and communicated to me that I had something in my hair...

      I had a barcode sticker, stuck on the back of my head!

      OMG - the whole episode was hideously embarrassing...

      It was long while before I went back to that supermarket!

    I tooted out loud yesterday in a busy doctors waiting room.  OMG never has happened before!!!!  Saved by friend that put most of the room in hysterics immediately began looking around swearing she had heard a frog!  Did anyone else hear or see a frog?  She saved me and I am forever indebted

      A Frog?  Brilliant improvisation but surely a duck would have been better!

    My husband was entertaining a few of his business associates the other day. Smiling pleasantly with a tray of drinks, I tripped on the step that leads to the sitting room. Of course, there was a terrible crash, a big mess, my husband scowled, the business associates came rushing to my aid ...
    Horribly embarrassing!

      You know, if it sounded like a frog, it was probably a cute little toot.  We used to blame ours on the dog.

    I said the word "F***" in front of my 89-year-old mother.  I had just stubbed my toe, and it slipped out.  I'm over fifty and she still threatened to wash my mouth out with soap!

      That reminds me of the time I was fishing in my handbag for a tissue and a packet of condoms fell out.  My mother picked them up and curiously asked why they were bubble-gum flavoured.  I was 30 and mortified!
