Monday Memories - Embarrassing Moment

Have you ever had one of those busy busy harried days where it doesn't even seem you have time to stop and go to the bathroom?

Well, when I was in my mid twenties, a young cost accountant, and trying to make my mark in the world of Finance, it was one of those busy days.

Well finally about mid afternoon I could not wait any longer. I quickly stopped at the ladies room, did my wee-wees, washed my hands and headed out the door.

Feeling great relief, my focus was back on the next task at hand. I needed to go see someone and their office was in another area of the complex. To get there I needed to go to the other end of the plant and take a short tunnel to the office tower.

So I headed off, pad and pencil in hand, thinking about what I needed to discuss with the associate I was going to meet. I was dressed in a stylish grey pleated skirt and blouse, popular during the 1980's.

Unbeknownst to me, I walked the full length of the manufacturing floor before I realized that a portion of the pleats of my skirt at the back was tucked up into my pantihose.

I felt N-O-T-H-I-N-G.

It wasn't until someone pointed it out to me and I almost died of embarrassment.

I guess that's akin to a guy with his fly is down.

Has this ever happened to you or have you ever had to tell someone about their predicament?

Ohh...that is embarrasing. It sounds like you are sort of able to laugh about it a little now.

I had a very embarrasing moment that involved me and a friend running into a men's room (instead of a ladie's room) once at the Science Center ~ to spit out some astronaut strawberries we sampled.

I'm sure everyone can identify a bit with your moment ~ Happy Monday!

I humiliate myself daily. Keeps me humble.

The most humiliating thing that has happened to me. Happened last Wensday when I burned my upper lip with a chicken wing. I look like Adolf Hitler with this big red burn in the middle of my upper lip. I have to assure people it's not AIDS. LOL I look so foolish.

Sorry, that was too funny, must laugh :-)

I probably would have been the one telling you about it. I usually am rather straight forward about most things.

OH, yes, been through some incidents. It's fun.

ICL I think we all have had this happen at least once in our life! I never thought of it as the same as a mans fly but you are right! Great story! Thanks for sharing and giving me a smile!

Mine is up. Have a wonderful Monday!

Carmen said...

Ha ha ha. I'm not laughing at you, but rather WITH you. :) (are you laughing?) I've never had it happen to me, but I've heard about it happening to others.

Michele said...

Oh my, too funny, never happened to me but heard of it happening to others. Mine's up http://micheled.blogspot.com/

Oh, that is too funny! Nope, that has never happened to me, but I did walked out of the restroom with toliet paper stuck on my shoe. :)

Dorothy said...

That DID happen to me. I was 14 yrs.old and walking down the hall of my church. AND, I was wearing my ugly brown print undies (they matched my brown pleated skirt). Oh yeah, lived that one down in a hurry.

Cheeky said...

I can honestly say that has NEVER happened to me.......I would be so mortified......Hope you had on some cute panties though :)

I know the feeling.

I was in my late 20's. Working at an office in downtown Calgary. Went out to the front of the building. Ran into a fellow from the other office. The man office. No women at all worked there. Stopped and chatted.
Big wind came along. Blew my 90's dress right up past my waist. I had on pantyhose but no undies.
I knew he was dying to get back to the office to tell all the guys. And I would see them everyday.

Gracie said...

That's never happened to me, but I have had the proverbial "raccoon eyes"...and was mortified when I discovered it. It was an especially humid day, and for whatever reason, my mascara decided to melt off my eyelashes...UGH. I'm still horrified that I met with people and had "intelligent" conversations with them all the while they MUST have been wondering why I'd put my make up on in the dark!!

PS: Why is it that although it's my son who's now got a girlfriend, I feel like I'm the one dating her??? I'll fill you in later.

*hugs from a mom who wonders why 4 yr olds can't just stay 4 forever*

How about pulling up in front of a gas station to get coffee and smokes, leaving the car running (a bad habit of mine) and getting out only to find that you've left the car in drive, and yes, people out front, watching you grab the door, jump back in, in heels, running down the shrubs, to put the car in park. Yes, I've done that twice!!

So, don't feel bad....there's people who have done worse!!(like me)
