I want to share my experiences and learn about other people's experiences, that's why I keep asking these questions. I want to write about things which people can relate to. I figured that most of us won't meet anyway, why not share and laugh about our most embarrassing experiences. But, if you don't want to, I'd really understand. So mine was these two. First was the one time when I was walking with Madmarycash14 in school. I'm kind of used to rubbing her belly from time to time or whenever I feel like it. So there was this one time when we just got off from class and were walking together with thelaundrybuddy. I tried to rub her belly again that time like I was waiting for a genie to come out. To my dismay, when I looked at my friend to talk to her, it wasn't her belly that I was rubbing. Instead, there was a girl standing there, looking so shocked and bewildered with what I was doing with her tummy. I was really embarrassed so I immediately rushed to where my friends were. I even forgot to apologize because of my embarrassment. The next one is with my friend, David. Whenever I would see this guy, I would pat him rather heavily on his shoulder. Hitting would actually be the more appropriate description for it since I usually patted him really really hard. Anyway, I was going out of the lab that day and I thought I saw him. For a moment, i hesitated because I thought he looked a little bit different and because he was with some friends that I didn't know. However, when I looked at him again I was so sure that it was him so POOOW! I hit him hard on the same exact spot on my shoulder. To my dismay (again), when the guy turned around, he wasn't my friend. He looked so bewildered and shocked as his two other buddies. Gaaa! Talk about wanting to shrink. I told him that I was sorry but immediately rushed downstairs. Haha. Whew! Anyway, that's gotta be it for me! How about you? Have you had the same experience? What's your embarrassing story? C'mon, do tell and keep me posted. PS. This is my third time to write this article. The first two got control C'd and got deleted. I had to type this down three times. hahaha. Curses to no copy pasting!

This happened way back in 6th grade. I fell down the stairs. I accidentally stepped on a broom and i really rolled down the stairs. Im so embarassed. There were many on lookers but thanks to them only a few had a good laugh including myself hahaha. Thanks to my buddies they helped me to get up.

Hi there! Mine was I thought it is already my last step, but unfortunately I have 5 more steps to go. I suddenly stepped to the last staircase then I grab my classmate and we fell together. The only nice thing because no one saw what happened, it's between the two of us. This is not the most embarassing one. =) Just sharing.. =)

It's good that you didn't get hurt and it's nicer that no one saw you! :) haha. Anyway, watch your step. I always am careful in going up and down the stairs because I really am a clumsy person.

The most embarrassing moment I have had was when I took a motorcycle transport to a certain destination and I could not pay the rider because I forgot my purse containing my money at home. I had to tell the driver to carry me back to collect my purse and get the rider paid. It cost me a lot of stress and also I had to pay for the extra journey. I am from Nigeria. Mortorcycle transport popularly called "Okada" is the main means of movement within the country.

Wow! That does sound like a lot of hassle. Hopefully the driver was kind enough to keep his cool.

Hi there! The most embarassing moment that ever happened in my life is when I'm in high school(secondary). It is raining that day,and I was running because I am already late (I'm wearing white polo and navy blue pants) then I saw a student whose running also towards me in the same line but I go to the other side. Unfortunately, before I reached the stairs I slipped and bang!, my head was hit on the door because the floor is wet, I feel drowsy and was blacked out, then I was picked up by my friend (without me knowing) lying on the floor with my clothes wet and dirty. I was rushed into the clinic and rested there for 5hours. Good for me that my head is ok. That's it, my most embarassing experience. Have a great day!

Owwww! That must have hurt a lot! Anyway, be careful with slippery floors. They always victimize someone. :) At least your friend helped you!

Hahaha. My classmate had a similar experience but there wasn't any broom involved. The stairs was very slippery so he fell. It was funny to watch because he slid down while sitting. I know it was bad to laugh but my other three friends and I couldn't stop laughing. We even had to grab the stair railings to keep from falling. To make things funnier, when my classmate seemed to have stopped falling, he slid another few steps further and we ended up laughing more.

Hahahaha. Interestingly enough, the most embarrassing moment I had happened the same day as you "rub-rub" incident! Hahaha. I think you know this one but for the sake of sharing here it goes. We were walking along the Little Theater walk and somehow got into a bit of a crowed. We found our friend, Rommel, among the people and we had a little chat. Then with you "supposedly" behind me, I grabbed your hand and pulled us out of the commotion. To my utter embarrassment, I turned around and saw a puzzled girl with eyes wide open. Hahaha. She seemed to be as speechless as I was as I apparently pulled her away from her friends. I hastily returned her to her friends and found you laughing your face off in the back of the crowd. Hahaha. The mental image of that whole ordeal remains stuck in my head until now.

hahaha! i remember that one! tsk tsk. always remember the saying, "look before you rub!". poor guy.. he got hit for nothing. but it's a nice way to meet new friends. ;) one of my many embarrassing moments happened overseas in a cruise ship. i was in some sort of viewdeck where they serve drinks and snacks and it overlooked a rock climbing wall. i was sitting comfortably eating some nuts and there was this piece that got stuck in my teeth. feeling at home, i put my finger in my mouth and tried to reach it. i was thinking of other things and was staring blankly when i heard these foreigners laughing. when i looked up, they were looking at me, and one even said "go reach it up there". i didn't react and just looked the other way, ignoring them because deep inside, i was burning with shame.
