Most Embarrassing Moment(s)

I am so excited about today! I am beyond ready to read about all of your most embarrassing moments and LAUGH!  



My first embarrassing moment revolves around our sweet, sweet first baby, Cadence.  Look at how cute she is!!!  My most embarrassing moment should be that I dressed her up in a dog Spiderman costume for Halloween :)  I've always loved a theme!

 

I was in my first year of teaching (this was Pre-Luke) and when I got home from school one day I let Cadence out to potty and run around a bit and then decided to take her with me to the tire shop to get my tires checked, rotated, fixed, etc. (I don't remember exactly what I was doing there - hahaha).  

Let's all look at how cute my car was!!!  I had a Vapor Blue beetle (this pic is from Google.... because I'm being lazy and don't want to look through photo albums for a picture of mine... but it was exactly the same).


I loaded Cadence into the Beetle and headed to the tire store.  I parked, cracked the window and left her in the car while I went inside to give them my keys. fill out my paperwork and prepay.  A couple minutes later I ran out to the car, she hopped out and we spent the next 30 minutes or so walking around the little grassy area next to the shop (because this is what you do when you don't have kids and your dog is your baby).  

I heard my name on the PA system and watched one of the mechanics pull my car up front.  He got out of the car and handed me my keys - all with a strange look on his face.

He walked off and I opened the door for Cadence to get in and I IMMEDIATELY noticed dog poop! On the back seat AND the front passenger seat.  I WANTED TO CRAWL INTO A HOLE!!!  Those poor mechanics had worked on my car and then DRIVEN IT out front with two lab-sized poops in it!  I was so embarrassed and he had already walked away so I jumped in and drove off. hahaha

All these years later and I still can't show my face at that particular tire store for fear that they have a picture of me hanging up in the back labeled, "dog poop girl" or something equally accurate and awful.  I think the worst part was that they may have thought that I KNEW about it when I dropped it off. UGH! SO SO SO embarrassing!!!  If you happened to have worked at Discount Tire in McKinney in 2006 and are still there PLEASE tell your co-workers I had no clue she had pooped in the car!!!  PLEASE! :)

Next up (yes, there's more!) is a story that is way better when told instead of written...


OMG, right?!?!?!  So embarrassing!!!

Last one...
I was teaching in my old classroom on our "Upper School" campus and was rushing out of my classroom during passing period to run to the bathroom and be back in time for my next class.  I was wearing heels (like.... pointy ones with a stiletto type heel) and the dress pants in the pic below...


... yes... I remember the pants.  They were my favorite and were a cute tweed with a big cuff at the bottom.  I loved those pants!  Anyway, right outside of my classroom, our Headmaster had a big group of people in suits (he was giving a tour to the Chamber of Commerce) and as I was walking out of my classroom door the heel of my shoe got caught in the cuff of my pant and I BIT IT!  Like.... ripped holes in the both the knees of my pants, blood everywhere and the palms of my hands were completely scraped and bloody.  Not only was the Chamber group out there, but so was the entire middle and high school since it was passing period.  I didn't know what to do and it was like someone hit the pause button because "everyone" had stopped and was staring at me.  So, naturally, I rolled over onto my back and laughed hysterically.  Someone helped me up, I made my way to the bathroom and then I taught the rest of the day with bandaged hands and ripped up pants.  Awesome.  

One other time I was sitting on my stool at my podium and had just given a lecture about study habits or something equally as sobering and then I got up to proceed to the next item of business and the heel of my shoe got caught on the bar of the stool and I face planted right there in front of my class.  And once again, I laid there and laughed. hahaha

Now you know why I only wear flats and wedges :)

And since we're talking about embarrassing moments, let's talk about when you're tagged in an embarrassing photo on Facebook.  I was looking for a pic of me in those pants and I came across these gems that I somehow forgot (or never realized) I was tagged in.

Mercy.  

I was pregnant with Luke during basketball spirit week. Don't I look excited about it???

And speaking of excited... check out my obvious enthusiasm for my Subway sandwich I was inhaling my freshman year of high school.  Please note my AWESOME Doc Marten sandals (they were the coolest) and is anyone surprised that I have a plethora of writing instruments spread out in front of me?  :)


Then I saw this photo that I posted of MYSELF!  WHAT?!?!?!  Myself wearing purple gauchos and CROCS!!!  I've always been my own person, but someone REALLY should have told me this was awful. hahaha

Hopefully you've all had a good laugh - now link up so I can read yours and not feel so alone in all my awkward embarrassment :)

    1. Do you remember how heavy they were??? I had three pairs of them (the ones with the ring on the top, the black twisty slip ons and then the regular style).... I have vivid memories of clomping around Six Flags in them. hahahaha

  5. You know my only take away from all of these stories? After watching your video, it's clear that you are too smart to be my friend. Master's level finance class? Widget words? Yeah, I must totally bring you down. I took physics for non-majors and STRUGGLED. :)

  8. On your video, I started laughing before the end just because you were kind of trying not to laugh. Oh, that was priceless! I got such a kick out of your story. It is a lot like something my husband did while at a Chinese restaurant. Thank you for sharing that. I was so tickled:)

  9. I am loving this link up, I can't wait to read every single person's embarrassing stories. So funny! I love the banana one. My 4 year old walked up while I was watching that video and thought I was facetiming with somebody, so he jumped in and just had the longest conversation with you and had no clue that you weren't actually on facetime. Haha.

  10. My most embarrassing moment - hands down - is the time I was on a second date with a guy. He took me to a professional ice hockey game, and during one of the intermissions, they played the "Kiss Cam" game up on the Jumbotron. We were watching it with some amusement when suddenly, a pair of familiar faces popped up.....OURS!!!! I stared in total panic, not sure what to do, because we hadn't even kissed at that point!!! Finally, in an effort to just make it go away, I leaned over and kissed my date's cheek (mind you - this was our first kiss)......and the entire stadium BOOED US!!!!! It was so mortifying. Later, while we were leaving the arena, people recognized us and were totally laughing and making fun of us. Needless to say, the relationship didn't go anywhere, hahahaha.

  15. I just started teaching this year and I am petrified to wear anything other than flat heels. I am even scared to wear my wedges lol I guess it will be a lot of ballet flats for me once I have to put my boots up for the season. And running shoes on t-shirt days lol.

  16. Your video story reminded me of my poor husband in one of his high level engineering classes...the entire course was about metals and the entire semester the professor spoke of " al-oo-min-E-um" and my husband thought is was some rare earth metal...turns out...it was aluminum. He felt so bad!
