A FALLING WOMAN.

The woman in the picture is about to fall on her back, but my fall was the other way around. I was walking down a busy street on the way to a restaurant after doing some shopping , when my shoe heel caught in something and I fell forward. I was able to put out my hands and save myself from hitting the ground too hard . My cellphone went flying (I was talking on it at the time) so did my shopping bag - emptying its contents in the process. I ended up with bruised palms, bruised knees and a bruised ego. Thankfully, many helping hands came to my assistance, but even though that incident happened some years ago I still remember how very embarrassing it was. Was there an embarrassing moment in your life that still makes you cringe when you think of it?

I wandered off from the main party on a school hiking trip and slipped down an embankment. Though unhurt,I split my trousers spectacularly and rejoined the others with my jumper stretched over the gap - I don't think anyone noticed but I was acutely aware of it through the journey home

I have many incidents that make me cringe. I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt in that fall.

Hope your are okay from your fall. I remember walking into a glass door at the Mall, so hard, that I almost fainted. The noise was so loud that many people stared and gathered around me. That's my embarrassing moment.

@Kandae11 off course i was hurt physically. I really hit my face on that door. But I was so angry with myself for not seeing the door. The guy who helped me said people were always waking into the door and the owner should have put a sticker on it. But I don't go to the mall alone again. Bad moment there.

@Gita17112016 If it is a case where people are always doing it, those responsible for the Mall should do something about it - otherwise they could be sued.

One day i left work and as I was walking I felt as though I was carrying something extra. Anyway I kept walking thinking that if anything was wrong the couple behind me would let me know. When I finally turned around I was carrying a long train of toilet paper. I have heard of this happening to people but never thought I would be a victim.

@Kandae11 At least someone could have alerted you.

I really hate falling over in public. I hope your cellphone wasn't damaged.

The exact same thing happened to me a few years ago in Florida. I rolled onto my back in front of sidewalk diners enjoying an evening meal. Lovely sight! I was wearing a dress btw.

That sounds a tad more embarrassing than my experience. I was wearing a dress also - with a flared skirt. Luckily it was mid calf length.

There were several embarrassing moments. Too many for a comment box.

That is life. Of course you know there are some people who are more easily embarrassed than others. Unfortunately - I am one of those.

@Kandae11 I can't say that I'm easily embarrassed but some situations are indeed embarrassing.

Ya problem no one helped me up. Funny how life works. Should be bitter. Not at all , would run to help you miss lady. Why is it people go either way. Sucks, why would you want that to happen to someone unless miserable.

Of course, one has to be a bit wary of helping hands. I know of cases where helping hands helped themselves along the way
