I attended a friends wedding last night. I felt beautiful and happy since I was testing my makeup and hair for my own wedding in 5 weeks, and me and this girl finally found love and happiness. Just all around content and at peace and looking forward to having a good night. Met my other friend in the parking lot and we walked in to sit together.
Right away, I noticed my arch nemesis from high school – we were like the epitome of Frenemies (think drillteam, dance competitions, HAD to be around each other all the time but tolerated each other and eventually became “friends” even though we were both vying for the Captain’s position of the team – she got it). She was a bridesmaid in the wedding and she just looked absolutely MISERABLE. Total sourpuss face the entire time. Being the sweet and MATURE person I have become since high school (10+ years of development here), when I walked by her to go to the restroom, I lightly grazed her arm and said “Hi honey, good to see you, you look great!”
If cold shoulders were equivalent to bullets, I’d be dead. She glared at me and turned away. Havent talked to her in a good few years and there’s not any bad air between us so whatever. But SO AWKWARD. We just kind of ignored each other the rest of the night. Anyhoo, so the ceremony was beautiful, my bride friend look absolutely gorgeous.
Afterwards when it came time to file out of the ceremony area, we stood up to wait our turn to leave. I notice out of the corner of my eye, these 2 ladies sitting directly behind us nudging each other and pointing to my seat. I looked down and saw – wait for it – this ginormous blood spot on the pure white seat covers.
DEAR GOD WHY MEEEE! I sat back down. I told my friend I wanted to wait until everyone filed out so I can discreetly make my way to the bathroom, which she did not help with AT ALL: “DO YOU NEED A TAMPON??” So I get up to go, only to see my frenemy come back into the ceremony area to grab something, she sees my little debaucle and just bitch-smirked at me. Just why? Oh well, it was the the only time I caught even a glimpse of a smile from her the entire night; glad my pain evoked some kind of emotion from her.
So yeah: humilation at it’s finest – at least for me. I’m laughing now but shit! That sucked. Feel free to join in on a humiliation vent!

Don’t you dare feel embarrassed, it’s totally normal, and shame on those women for laughing!!
this happened to me in college, when I was wearing white jeans, at about 10am, when I had a full day ahead. You can imagine what a nightmare that was.

@ShabbyChicBee: Oh man, you poor thing! I would have just died of humiliation. It’s happened to me (during my younger years in school). Glad you are able to laugh about it now–I would not have had the self-confidence to do so for a long time! 🙂

@ShabbyChicBee: That miserable bitch is living inside her karma.
Honestly – what kind of a person gets satisfaction out of seeing someone in an embarassing situation after TEN years has gone by?

@ShabbyChicBee: aw, that is embarrassing. It could be worse though – I was once at a party where a girl shit her pants while sitting at a table playing cards. Liquid shit. She is never going to live that one down. At least it was just your period!

Oh my gosh, that’s awful! My mother had this happen to her on somebody’s brand spankin’ new cream couch. If the frenemy is still immature enough to be taking joy out of this then you should be happy that you’ve grown up more than she did.
That being said, just to share in the shame so you know you’re not alone. I used to compete in dressage, a discipline in horseback riding where you wear white pants/white shirt/high collar/black jacket/black tall boots/black helmet. Well, I had a show on my period, and I guess my tampon and pad decided to backfire on me, and my white pants looked like a murder scene after my ride. My boyfriend, now Fiance, was there and I narrowly missed flashing him my bloody pants, and my coach saw as well. SO EMBARASSING. Thankfully, unlike any other show, I decided this time to bring an extra pair of white pants, and I had a fresh pair of everything and boy did I layer up.
It’s something I laugh at now, for sure, and it’s why I always bring a cardigan with me places so I can tie it around my waist 😛

Oh god, cringe. Sorry you dealt with that. We’ve all been then, and how absolutely bitchy of anyone that smirked or took pleasure in it. A similar situation happened to my friend and I’ve never seen so many women band together to find a tampon and figure out how to cover the stain before!

HAHAHAH to all of you! Ya’ll are the best! I straight up covered that shit with my little program walked away.
And it totally didn’t get on my dress. SCORE!

That is hilarious! I hope you someday you can get some lighthearted “revenge” on her at a high school reunion, Romy-and-Michelle style! I hate that she got “the last smirk” in!

@GrannyPantiesRock: YES! This was me in my brain last night, just a pathetic animal with outstretched paws pleading the Almighty Higher Power.

Yes! That’s totally what did it for me. But during the reception after drinks got flowing, I couldn’t help but noticed just how unhappy she looked – unless that’s just how she is. Her husband was taking pictures for the couple and they never once interacted or even looked at each other. Her kid was acting up; most notably for the fact that it was a Sunday evening, getting kind of late. Her speech was just – not nice. “Like really – we all Bride and how crazy she is – sorry Groom. But no really – I’m happy for ya’ll.”
And then the Cupid’s Shuffle came on, so Hot Mama over here put those drill team skills to use, while she literally just sat there and looked at her phone. Just the most awful vibe eminating from her. I caught her glaring at me a couple of times.
But honestly? On the way home, I listened to mine FI’s wedding song and just couldn’t help but still smile and feel just happy. I realized that she really is unhappy about something – I don’t know what it is, but you could tell it’s there. I genuinely offered up a prayer for her.
