@iarebridezilla:  You are right, and I am the FIRST to tell the embarrassed party that when someone else says “everyone will forget about it.” I’ve absolutely chimed in “unlikely.”

 

Of COURSE I have stories, but I’ll start with one:

1. My BFs long-time friend is engaged to a woman he knew for 3 months before popping the question. The first time we met her was their second date. Me, Boyfriend or Best Friend, a mutual friend (Claire) and the happy couple met up at a restaurant on a Tuesday night around 7pm. This will be important later. 

 

The gal sat down and seemed normal enough: kind of quiet, good job and I think she’s 37.  She tells me ten minutes into the night that she’d assumed I was going to be a major bitch based on pics she’d seen of, which I let her know was a pretty strange thing to say to someone.  It was downhill from there: she spent the next hour trying to win me back over when the menfolk went outside to smoke. The second they were out the door, she says “I’ll be right back” and heads to the bar.  We see the bartender line up 3 shot glasses and pour rot-gut whiskey into them. We say to eachother “oh, that’s nice: she’s buying shots.”

 

Negative: she stood there and pounded all three. As she walked back to the table and saw our faces she said “Do NOT tell [the date] about that.”  Turns out I didnt have to: we left shortly thereafter and as we were in the parking lot saying our goodbyes, I couldnt find her. I walked between two big trucks and looked under each one, only to see boots with jeans around the ankes and a steady stream of urine.

 

You read that correctly: this woman got so drunk, she pissed in the well-lit restaurant parking lot. At 9pm on a Tuesday night.

@iarebridezilla:  Oh yeah.  I was totally surprised at my high school mini-reunion to hear about my embarassing story from the 6th grade!  I was running for class president and right before giving my speech the teacher told me I was a bad person and shouldn’t be running (WTF right?) so by the time I get on stage I am in tears and cried in front of the whole assembly of 6th graders.  People apparently still remember that even though I would love to forget it.

This happened over 15 years ago!

@iarebridezilla:  I embarrass myself on an almost daily basis. I also remember when other people embarrass themselves or do things that, had I been the one doing them, I would be embarrassed to do.

 

My junior year in high school, I went to the graduation ceremony because my best friend was graduating. This was in 2003.

 

The ceremony goes off without a hitch, then they start calling the graduates forward to receive their diplomas. One of the “popular” kids walked up the steps to the stage, stepped on his gown, and LAID HIS ASS OUT across the stage.

 

The entire audience erupted into laughter, his face burned bright red, and I still laugh thinking about it.

@iarebridezilla:  I, too, had a coworker walk into a glass door and THEN fall down two small steps after she bounced off of it!!!

 

BEST PART: the way we all found out about it was because the lady that reviews the security footage FOUND IT and brought it to our attention because she was worried the girl was hurt.  The only thing that was hurt was her pride when we all piled into her office and dragged her to watch the footage.

 

Normally I’m not this mean, but this girl was kind of out-spoken and delusional about her looks, so knowing her face bounced off of a glass window STILL makes me chuckle.

@iarebridezilla:  Nope, I can’t even remember my own embarassing moments, much less other peoples. It’s probably PTSD for me, for my own sanity my brain files them away.

 

Although, I will say I will never forget and never let my little brother forget either, that when he was about 7 I caught him singing “Natural Woman”. Nothing like seeing a little boy wearing a ninja turtle t-shirt belting out, “You make me feel like a natural wooo-maaan” at the top of his lungs!

ETA: He is 26 now, so that was almost 20 years ago! 🙂

I was just telling my FH about this guy in my neighborhood I went to school with. Once in second grade, he got stung by a bee on his lip During recess. His face blew up like a balloon in a matter of minutes…

Then, in fourth grade we had career day, earlier that day a doctor came and brought a human heart in a jar. He passed it around and this same kid turned green and left the room. I saw him again later that day an assembly. He barfed during the last guest’s speech, all over the floor of the gym In front of 3rd,4th, and 5th grade classes. Poor kid :(. I feel even worse that I can remember these embarrassing moments, but can’t remember his name. I even dated his brother a few years ago lol.

I have a story about myself from when I was a kid. Now, I remember this, but not quite the same way my mom tells it. It still makes me cringe thinking about it!

 

When I was little, my mom used to take me to see plays on my birthday every year. There was an outdoor theater by our house that did shows during summer. (I later ended up doing plays for years!). Anyhow, I was somewhere between 6-8 years old. We went to go see Peter Pan. Now, there was a part in the show where Peter talks to the audience, and goes, “Who wants to learn how to fly??” and then proceeds to walk through the audience to find someone to teach to fly. 

 

So there I was, a little girl, ECSTATIC that Peter wants to teach someone to fly. I stand on the chair (which was a bleacher type thing) and am practically jumping up and down with my hand in the air, screaming, “Me! Me! Pick me, Peter!!” and he, of course, goes to some other kid in the audience (who was in the cast, but as a kid, I had no idea). He brings the kid up on stage, and meanwhile, I began to BAWL my eyes out, crying so loudly that everyone was looking at me and my mom. I just could. not. understand. Why did he pick that other kid? I would be perfectly good at flying!!

 

After the show, my mom had Peter come over to say hi, and he gave me invisible “fairy dust” that meant I could do whatever I set my mind to. That eased my mind some, but I was disappointed later when I still couldn’t fly. 

 

Anyway, it makes me cringe because I remember how excited I was, and I remember thinking, I CAN FLY. JUST TEACH ME. I SWEAR I CAN DO IT. And I remember how deep the disappointment was. (You’d think my cat died or something). 

 

My mom still laughs about it to this day!
