I've got another one that won't embarrass me:
My best friend and I used to work together, and our (male) boss took a rather fatherly -- i.e. nosy -- interest in our personal lives. My friend was carrying on a flirtation with a boy who was in the office to work out our computers. The friend, the boss and I were at a business/social event and my friend went into her purse for her cigarettes. Out fluttered a piece of paper, which landed on the ground. The boss deduced it must be the computer boy's phone number, and dove for it. My friend tried to keep him away, but she lost the quite physical struggle. Turned out the "paper" was a tampon wrapper.
I've got one of those old fashion body gas ones.
I was young, about 8 or nine and sent away to a stupid summer camp. Every morning we have a flag raising, and every night take it down and fold it.
Also, a rule in the camp is that you have to have three bites of every dish offered.
My counselor never understood the whole vegetarian lactose intolerance thing, and would always get really mad at me for not eating most meals, and forced me to have what ever cheesy thing there was for dinner that night (it wasn't a progressive camp, it was a 'christian' camp that thought my food restrictions were ridiculous, but then my mother thought the vegetarianism was off-kilter anyway)
Anyway, not being able to digest lactose inthe first place, I had a very loud gassy moment during the flag folding that night, and EVERYONE startied laughing, I however, did not, at 8/9 - I was mortified!
Oh wow, I have so many stupid moments to choose from....this is probably the most embarrassing, though:
I was in high school, and getting ready for a big school dance. I had an enormous crush on this one guy who was also going, and I spent forever getting ready...perfect dress, hair, makeup, etc....well I get to the dance, hanging out with my friends - and here comes the guy. He asks me to slow dance!! My heart pounding, he leads me to the dance floor...I raise my arms to put my hands on his shoulders and realize I had forgotten one important thing while getting ready - deodorant! And boy could you tell....I almost died. To his credit he never said anything, and we ended up dating for quite a while.
Then there's the time I took a wrong turn in the gym and walked straight into the boy's locker room...while the entire football team was in there, most of them NOT dressed....I was so embarrassed I wanted to quit school! :bugeye
:hahaup I like your story on your crush, waywyrd !
I tend to block out the really bad ones, but the embarassing moments I do remember all revolve around upchucking somehow. Like when I was pregnant but wasn't very far along and hadn't told anyone at work, I used to go on emergency walks around the block all the time. Usually the fresh air would make the nausea pass.
One time I had just taken a twenty minute walk and I was feeling guilty about being away from my desk. (It would always strike just a few minutes after arriving - that in itself was embarassing, you just get into work and right away you need to take a break.) So I rushed getting back. Right when I was across the street from the big entrance to the office the rushing caught up to me and I realized I wasn't going to make it. I dived down next to a parked car and ralphed into the gutter, peeking over the hood of the car to the doors across the street to see if anyone had noticed me. Eventually, after much noisy spitting and the rest I stood up and I realized I was hearing whistles and cheers. Behind me, there was a construction crew working on a new building. They had all stopped work and had watched me - in my short skirt and heels, mind you - on all fours upchucking in the gutter. Boy howdy I was embarassed.

I'm not sure why I am sharing this.......got many more
Like the carwash and the police officer
Or the shredded nylon incident
Oh well here goes...
Back in my clubbing days my girlfriends and I were on the dancefloor and having a great time. I was wearing a mini skirt with panties that laced up on the sides with a wisp of silk....Annnywaaayyyysss said underwear decided to untie themselves and there I was on the dancefloor with wispy silk appearing from under my skirt. :omg
So in my drunken state (and NOTthinking clearly) instead of just whipping em off and putting them in my (?) oh heck hand, I decided that I would try to make it to the washroom (which happened to be on the lower level of the club). I had this ingenious idea of having my friends circle me and shuffle my way to the can. Damn did I ever feel stupid trying to push my "posse" thru the crowd when I shoulda just done the appropriate thing on the dancefloor. Then again I shoulda let the panties fall to the floor and dance somewhere else and nobody would have been the wiser!!!!!! :lol
:rofl Great story, JunkieGirl. Thanks for sharing.
Now I'll have to think of something to post. I'll try to pull up something from my repressed memory section. This really wasn't that embarassing but for now:
In a drunken stupor I fell flat on my back in the middle of a crwded dance floor. One second I was dancing, the next I was on my back feeling like a turlte trying to get up off his back. The girl who I was dancing with fell down on top of me too. (FH to himself - I miss having fun)
Actually I did it on purpose. I was at the same place as Junkiegirl and it was all just aploy to peek up her skirt. :lol :lol

1) One morning I arrived at work after having taken a few days off. Therefore, there were a few dozen unread emails. Click, read, click, read, click, delete etc. One email had an EXE attachment from a co-worker. This fellow was trustworthy so I thought hmm, should be interesting. Double-click. From the PC speaker, in a loud volume comes, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M WATCHING PORNO OVER HERE, WOO HOO!" Needless to say, I wasn't quick enough when diving for the power switch.
2) One afternoon at work I was busy on my computer. While thinking, I had absently tilted my chair back onto the rear 2 legs. Yep, you guessed it. Ended up on my back with a loud crash. It's hard to look cool when your feet are higher than your head.
I had a pretty embarrassing moment this past weekend. I had went to the mountains in Tennessee with my husband's family. We all stayed in the same chalet up on the mountain. It had been mixture of ice and snow the last night we were there so when we were packing the cars up the next morning, there was ice here and there on the ground. My SIL's boyfriend slipped on the stairs right in front of me.
My husband turned around to me and said, "Now be careful. There's ice on the stairs."
I was a bit cranky that morning anyway and I thought that to be a rather stupid thing to say. Obviously I had seen the guy slip down the stairs and had no intention of slipping myself.
So, I rolled my eyes :rolleyes and said, "*insert husband's name*, Master of the Obvious."
Then I promptly slipped on the ice and landed on my butt. :blush
