The Saturday Seven: Embarrassing Moments of Life

It's happened to everyone at some time in their life. Some private detail of your life is inadvertently revealed to others. You forget someones name you've met a hundred times. You have a squeaky chair that sounds like you are passing gas. You get the idea. Life has many such moments, sometimes more than I'd prefer in a day. How a person views or handles them says a lot about their personality. It's important to laugh at oneself. There may not be enough space on the Internet to list them all, so I've picked a few. This brings me to another scintillating edition of
The Saturday Seven: Embarrassing Moments of Life
#1 Leaving the men's room with your fly (zipper) down.

#2 Toilet paper on your shoe...

#3 Neighbor sees you standing naked in the front window.

#4 Leaving an expensive restaurant and having no tip money for the valet

#5 The old "spinach in teeth" thing

#6 Splitting your pants in public

#7 Holes in your socks in front of the shoe salesman at Nordstrom

Bonus: Hotel maid walks in and finds you naked

Do YOU have any embarrassing moments of your own to share? Oh go on, leave a comment. We can all use a laugh. I'm running a special today, COMMENTS ARE FREE FOR EVERYONE!

smiles, bee

Oh gosh Bee, that is hysterical. I did something similar once at the doctor's office when I was in college (22 years ago). I was given the little plastic cup but I filled it to the top rim and gingerly walked out of the bathroom holding the sample, until I stumbled and spilled the urine sample on the nurse.

How about passing gas in someone's face as they are...ahem...performing oral copulation on you...

Yeah...nice one...

Lewis said...

Is it so wrong to actually like #1 and #3? And passing gas while giving oral? Oops.

Palm Springs Savant said...

Songbird- that us HILARIOUS. Good one for sure.

RockDog said...

Wait a minute...so the maid wasn't supposed to see me naked? Then why was she wearing that sexy costume???


Thanx for the comment! Cool blog!

Jenny! said...

Holes in your socks are embarassing even if noone sees them!

Hotel maids walking in on you naked, just means your stupid and forgot to put the DND sign on your door!

Thanks for your comments!

thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll be coming back, so be fair warned.

Keeping along the lines of the urine embarrassment. I was at my specialists office and went in the bathroom to give a sample, and I knocked the cup over when I was pulling up my pants, and I go "OH SHIT, YOU BASTARD!!!" And I walk out to tell them I have to wait to pee again, just to be informed that everyone in the office and waiting room heard me. I had to sit for a good hour before I had to piddle again.

Or going to the school to drop my son off, and ending up talking to a group of mom's for over a half hour, get home and realize I never brushed my hair and it was all sticking to one side and straight up.

And the grand finale one. My old Bassett he had this habit that every time he walked out and it was chilly he would do the humping motion. He couldn't help it, it just happened, we called it humping air. He always always did it when my customers would show up. Soooooo embarrassing. I'm trying to talk, and he's up on this elevated porch looking right at them, humping away.

One of my most embarrassing moments was when, after my divorce, I finally was starting to have a sex life again, and forgot to lock my bedroom door! My daughter almost learned a lot more than she needed to know very quickly. Luckily, we were faster. I never forgot the door again.

Ps. Very creative post. You're such a creative blogger. (wink)

thanks for the comments on my blog.

I have quite a few embarrassing moments but without a doubt while roadtripping in CA I had to poop and there was no rest stop for like 100 miles. Only thing to squat behind was a tumble weed, that blew away. I was in Buttonwillow and my friends bought me a pin to commemorate my little adventure.

Now that I think about it I had the same problem while in the woods, only that time I squated in poison oak and had a very itchy reminder!

EBEZP said...

Rick I've done your #3, in a motel room but wasn't that bothered and casually reached for the curtain only to burn my balls on an inconveniently placed radiator!!

To add a comment to songbird btw, I've had that done to me, God I wasnt actually embarrassed but she was, I guess the pervert in me enjoyed it!!

Thanks for the request on mine about 10am your time it'll be a pleasure.......

Queen of Dysfunction said...

Awesome!

On the first day of our honeymoon, the hotel maid walked in on my husband and I. I was kinda, well... being loud so we didn't hear the key or her walk in. She quickly disappeared in a puff of Spanish after we scarred her for life.

Palm Springs Savant said...

Sarah- that is a good one...HOW VIVID!!!

PSS:
Thanks for stopping over to see me on crustybeef..
My Gosh I have so many embarrassing moments...hmmm..I think you've inspired my next post-I do believe I owe you a plug..
My first obvious memory of redness for certain was reading out loud in my christian dayschool sometime in 5grade and instead of reading the word PUBLIC, I said PUBIC...
I had a nickname until I graduated 8th grade.
ALways,
Crusty~

marlupe said...

oh my gosh this is too funny. I have one for you. One day at work I was on the phone talking to a girlfriend about a date I had been on the prior night, (which included "intimate relations"). I had no idea I had rested a book on the office intercom button, so the entire time I was talking about the best sex of the year, all of my co-workers heard at the same time. Someone came rushing up to my desk with a look on their face and I looked down at my phone and I was horrified beyond belief!!!

Skittles said...

Too many to mention!

Canadian flake said...

I think the most embarrassing thing that comes to mind was one Sunday morning when my hubby and I stayed late in bed. We were dating and hadn't been physical that long...I had been a single mom for a long time so my kids had never even seen me kiss a man. We locked the door but the latch didn't catch...we were getting "busy" and I hear my 8 yr old son say (and this is a quote) " Mommy you're naked........" omg I just wanted to die...lmao.

Palm Springs Savant said...

Flake- that's a great story..and more common than you would think!

madame x said...

exchanging gifts with a boyfriend (serious..wink wink boyfriend)....He got me a Seiko 'opus' watch ltd edition. I got him a beach towel.

bunnygirl said...

Most of my embarrassing moments these days come from dumb mistakes like losing track of a document at work because it got lost under a sea of paper.

Physical stuff doesn't embarrass me as much as it used to, and I credit endurance sport with that. After a half-ironman or a 100-mile bike ride in the summer heat, you really don't care who sees what body parts, or if you've got bugs stuck on you, or spaghetti sauce on your chin at the post-event party. No one cares, and everyone else looks like crap, too.

You start caring about such things again once you're cleaned up and rested, but what sticks is the sense that most of what you do and look like is ignored or quickly forgotten by your peers. Whether or not it's true is another matter, but it sure makes it easier to get through the day, assuming no one really cares about the dumb stuff.

If someone's biggest worry is that my shoe is squeaking, good for them! What a truly blessed life they must have, with no worries of their own! :-)

I reported my car stolen........I had left it up the local shop.

Tod said...

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog.

I think the time I was helping my elderly mother do her shopping and she turned to me at the counter and asked me in front of a whole queue of people if I wanted a chocolate bar like I was seven again was pretty grim.

Mousie said...

I once burped right in the face of this hot guy I was about to snog.

Fortunately he saw the funny side, even if I didn't.

*Cringe*

Arcturus said...

Pretty much every day I get up, get dressed, and go outside ...

Just kidding.

I'm too bitter a person to have spectacular embarrassing moments.

Wizened Wizard said...

How about the time, at an office party, that I noticed the round belly of the wife of one of my husband's associates and asked her when she was due... "Due??" Uh, oh, uh, um, er - DUE TO GO ON A VACATION!! Um, er, uh, you know, we all need a vacation once in awhile, um, don't you think?? (Actually maybe she was due for some more dip and chips or pork rinds, but she certainly wasn't "due" in the sense that I originally asked about!
