Isn't it funny how some things can seem so embarrassing or upsetting when it happens (then), but after some time--it's funny as heck now.

example:

Once I was snobbishly floucing and shashaying down the street (a BUSY street), thinking I was the hottest thing on earth and when I got to my office, I went into the
bathroom and my skirt was tucked into my stockings! So I was walking down the street with my bum hanging out:wtf::Push:

I was so embarrassed and totally upset/disgusted that no-one stopped me to tell me. When I think of it today, it's too funny--funny as all get out!

Do you have any situations you've experienced that were totally upsetting or embarrassing then...but funny as heck now?

Things like this happen on just about a daily basis for me!!!

The best, though, is my arguements with DH!!! They are so loud and bad at the time, but we often laugh at each other for what was said later!!!

One time in the dead of winter on a snowy and icy morning, I got out of my car to go to work and slammed the door shut and immediately lost my balance on the ice and slid right under my car on the ice in our office parking lot. The only thing that was sticking out from under my car was my head and shoulders.....right when my boss happened to be walking by. He looked at me and said, "what the heck are you doing under there"....like I was changing the oil or something. He proceeded to help me out of there, but then he fell down and it was just a cluster from there. I was bruised, dirty and sore and extremely embarrassed but the whole situation got funnier and funnier as time passed. I don't like ice.

I was once mortified, but now it's a funny memory.

I was 13 and had just changed schools. My gym class was opposite band, so everyone in band had gym together and as normally is, band kids tend to hang out together... so I was beginnign to know this kids more than anyone else in school.

Anyway, they had a rule that you had to shower after gym. So, what they gave you was this hand towel to cover your body and of course, the showers were cold and no one ever really showered, just got a little wet and ran out.

So... buck naked, I ran out of the shower and slipped. I fell HARD, spread eagle the floor with the towel dropped or something as I was not covered. The entire group of girls came running STARING at me buck naked on the floor - I was 13, not developing much at all yet and the NEW KID.. I was so flippin' embarrassed. I WAS hurt, but NO WAY was I going to let anyone know that! Yikes!

I thought everyone had forgotten it, but a friend of mine on her sr. picture to me said, "My first memory of you was you falling naked on the locker room floor. That was so funny!" OMG... at least I could laugh about it then, but so much for no one remembering it! She remembered it 5-6 years later!

^^ too funny ladies!!

i guess mine would be when i was about 14-15. i was talking to my first real boyfriend [later was my first husband] on the phone. my little sister got on the other line and started talking to us. then all the sudden she blurts out "danielle has waaarts, danielle has waaarts!!" and she wouldn't stop. i hung up on him real fast and ran to my room.

i did have a planters wart on my foot and it had to be removed, so my sis couldn't wait to tell everyone about it...at the time i was so embarrassed, he called me back like 4 times but i couldn't talk to him. and oh i was so angry with my sis! now of course it's hilarious!!


and i just thought of another one...we had gone to chili's and then to hobby lobby to look at yarn. well apparently what i ate for dinner [soup and salad] didn't agree with me. so i feel some gas brewing, and i thought i could pass it and no one would notice...well it was much more stinky than what i hoped. my oldest was standing by me and he yells out "oh wow! it stinks in here!!" then as a lady walks by the aisle my dh says "it's probably mommy" and the lady looked at me and then kept going. i turned bright red and then i started laughing...

moral of the story: try to not fart in public, or if you do, don't let your family be with you LOL!

One time I was in Wal-Mart and forgot something that we needed after we had gotten to the checkout line. So I run back to get the item and the DW and kids are in line. I hurry as fast as I can and upon rounding a corner I feel the need to let one go...so I figure that I can do it and before anyone knows what happened I would be down the other aisle and on my way from the scene of the "attack". So i let it go as i turn the corner and to my surprise its not silent...but rather noisy...AND there is a little old lady standing there to make it worse. So naturally my first reaction is to pretend it didn't happen. That got foiled as the lady looks at me right in the eyes and gives "the look" of "did he just do that?". So what is my response?...I gave her the look right back and said "ewww" and ran....

See... farts happen. You can't hold them in forever and everyone does it, so why do people get so weird about it? Maybe it's because I'm living with Mr. Fart and Fart Jr. at home, but it's not like they can HELP IT... I don't get gassy often, but when I do... Oh, boy.... stinky!

Ooo I have one....when I was a sophomore in college, I had a meeting with my advisor (and older man, maybe in his early 50s), and my dorm room was about as far from his office as it was possible to get on our campus. So I grabbed my backpack, headed through the campus center to check my mail, and down the main sidewalk to the building where his office was located. It was the middle of the day and between classes, so everyone was out walking around, and being the kid that I was, thinking I was all that, I did my best to look cool as I wandered down the sidewalk. When I got to my advisor's office, I sat down, slung my backpack on the floor, and my advisor got this slightly weird look on his face. I looked down, and to my horror, my new, bright green satin Victoria's Secret bra was hanging off the strap of my backpack. So I'd walked for almost 20 minutes all the way through campus with a bright green bra stuck to the top of my backpack. I wanted to die. I just shoved it in my backpack and pretended like nothing had happened, but I was humiliated. Looking back now, it's really funny.

These are great!

I have one. When I was about 17-18 I was walking through the Tropicana Casino (not on the gambling floor because I was too young) thinking I looked cool. I saw this really cute guy sitting at a slot machine and smiled at him. He smiled back at me and I walked right into a mirrored column because I wasn't watching where I was going. I was mortified but it is funny now. I ran out of there so fast and had a large bump in my forehead for days.

OMG that is just too hilarious! He might have thought you were trying to put the moves on him! I'm sure he enjoyed telling that story to his wife! LOL

I don't know if this was embarassing but it sure was funny. A guy called and asked to speak to _____, which is my husbands name. I said he was not home and the guy started talking to me. It is not strange since I do talk to the people my husband does business with. As we continue talking we both finally realize he did not call the right number and I am not the wife of the guy he thought he was calling. We had a good laugh and said it was a nice conversation......

I was in the dressing room in Marks and Spencer trying out dresses. I was pretty tired at some point, and too lazy to unzip the last dress before I take it off. I decided to just pull it off, like a sweater. Apparently I got stuck in the dress, hands hanging in the air above my head, black dress around my head and I'm in a state of panic. I begin rolling around to get it off me, and when I finally break free I realize I'm out of the dressing rooms where the boyfriends and the husbands wait for their ladies to finish trying cloths. All this time they silently watched the crazy girl with her bra showing trying to break free from a black dress. Thank god I had my jeans on, I'd die if I was in my knickers.

Keep in mind that this was back in the early '80s...in fact I think the year was 1980, I was a senior in HS. The New Wave Look was, well, new, and me being one who marched to the beat of her own drummer, I made myself a super, super tight pencil skirt that stopped just above my knees. I was doing a sort of vintage look with a fuzzy button-up-the-back sweater, tights, high heels, and the very tight pencil skirt. I wa sooooo freakin hot, lol. So I manage to walk down the hill to the bus stop all right, but when the bus came and I tried to step up onto the first step---I couldn't! My skirt was so tight, I simply could not move my knees far apart enough to step up. OMG I was so embarrassed! I had to basically tug the skirt up high enough to be able to take some very spastic sideways lunges up into the bus....needless to say this production took a little time so everyone noticed since the bus was stopped so long. Getting off the bus was no picnic either, I think I basically just hopped down the steps like a New Wave rabbit. Luckily I had stuck a pair of jeans in my book bag so I was able to change out of the ridiculous skirt once I got to school. I must've had a premonition of disaster or something, it's unfortuante that I didn't have it in time to just not wear the friggin skirt in the first place!
